PAOK International Players (National Teams)

Recommended Posts

Prijovic was a bargain.  I don't think he's that easy to replace.  Considering we haven't won the league since 1985, the club should concentrate on that first and monies later!  If it were up to me, I wouldn't even sell him for 15 million at this stage, considering there are lots of players out there worth much more than Prijovic (on paper) that you don't know if they will be even half as good.

We didn't buy him to keep him forever. If we win the championship, then by all means sell him (the clause is there for a reason).

Of course, if we win, then possible CL entry might be enough to entice a few guys who are on the fence, to stay. But I'm getting ahead of myself...

Prijovic is our only real striker.  There was talk earlier in the year that Mak could be used as a backup striker but he isn't that sort of a player.  All a team has to do to stop Mak is play deep and without space to run into a big part of his game is nullified.

Koulouris and Klaus (when we had him) are/were both average at best.  With Prijovic the opposition *have* to play their best defender on him.  With Koulouris or Klaus quality strikers you can play your second, third or fourth best defender and you'll probably be all right.  No offence to them of course, I know they give it their best.  But with Prijovic you have to watch him.  His aerial presence alone is something we've missed for years.

I've always looked at our squad and thought "if Olympiakos could have any of our players who would they want ?".  In seasons past I could maybe pick 2, 3 or 4 players at best.  But now we have Rey, Matos, Zambrano, Mauricio, Vieirinha, El Khadouri, Mak, Prijovic.  The squad is looking strong and any talk of selling should be dismissed.  Trust me without Prijovic we don't win a title.

Add to that list very competent players on their day like Crespo (Yiankos's koumbaro), Varela, Canas, Biseswar, Pelkas, Shakhov, Campos and all of a sudden the squad is potentially challenging for the title.  Really challenging or at least they should be.  Some of these players can be hot and cold with their form so if they can stay in form it could make the difference.

Speaking of Pelkas he finally seems to have woken up and started playing some decent football.  He just needs to stop getting silly yellow cards.  I really think he should be with the NT if we manage to qualify for The WC.

Leovac was recalled to his NT for their match vs us. Perhaps this will improve his psychology and we'll see the old Leovac again?

The time is right for Pelkas to get a call up.  He's finally beginning to playing with some maturity.  I'd be surprised if he gets any playing time against Croatia but he should definitely be a part of our next NT campaign.

Are you sure, or do you have some order to increase his value?

According to my sources Ljajic and Mitrovic scored and after that Prijo was subbed in in 85’.

I won’t.

Prijo is saving his goals for the WC. Earning him a transfer to a good club, giving us a mega fee and leaving us in the preseason with a gap .......

Siabanis (our goalkeeper) scored the tying goal against Russia in Iraklio in the qualifying game for the U19 Euro. He converted on a penalty kick. Greece went on to win 2:1 and qualify to the Elite Round of the Euro. Here is a video of the Siabanis penalty kick:

Δεν είναι σοβαρά πράγματα αυτα. Για ποιό λόγο εκτελεί το πέναλτι ο τερματοφύλακας; Αν το έχανε; Θα βγαίνανε στην αντεπίθεση οι άλλοι.
