NT Coaches

Recommended Posts

Sport24 conducted a poll in November about who the fans should be the next NT coach after Santos. Around 17,000 Greeks voted.

 

Tsiolis won the vote. In fact I voted for him too. Now that Markarian has basically said the NT needs another coach, Tsiolis is back in focus.

The 800 who voted for Topalidis are clearly Otto fundamentalists who believe anyone he spent time with him must be rewarded.

I would laugh at the Topalidis suggestion but I'm afraid some people don't realise that Topalidis was essentially Otto's translator.

He's football management career is essentially non-existent aside from the time he spent with the Ethniki so he should never be brought up.

How did Topalidis get more votes than Anastasiou who rebuilt PAO, or Vergetis who's lead Asteras Tripolis to two Europa league group stages? From that list Id take Jovanovic, Vergetis, Anastasiou, Donis, and then Tsiolis. I'd take Michel or Ketsbaia before any of them tho

Giorgos Donis just lead Al Hilal to a championship just recently. If he can control these oil barons with massive egos, he can control Hellas. He is a winner then. Look, as long as the coach is 45-55 years of agee, the players will want to play for him. Not a 75 year old, or it may as well be Frank Lowy or Sepp Blatter then.

Greece needs a coach that is a defence first coach, and focuses the team on getting back to a solid defensive system, who ever it is that has to be the number one focus, having a team that takes pride in keeping a clean sheet. And grooming young players into our system.

Mediocre coach. Not NT material as are most of Greek coaches. Need somebody like Otto to lay down the law in the dressing room like he did with Georgatos.

Tsiolis is a good coach. I have read many of his comments over the years - criticizing clubs like Olympiacos over the way they treated fetfatzidis and K. Paps who he said he could not understand why they were not given more experience in less important games as they would gain vital experience. He often questioned how much a team can gain from playing 30 year olds in a cup game that has already been won first leg. 

 

Tsiolis is exactly the type of character the NT needs and it is obvious why Karagounis went for Markarian and the other idiot Sarris wanted Ranieri.

A lot of you underrate Makarian. Is he old? Yes. But he is a good coach and his resume shows that. It's laughable that people think Sakis Tsiolis is a good coach and fit to coach the NT when he's never held a stable job, never coached a team that actually had to contend for a championship,and neverb had European experience.

^^Markarian himself said that he's not the coach of the future so we should definitely start searching for the next coach, but I agree about Sakis Tsiolis, he's a clown of a coach and has never stayed anywhere for more than 16 months.

Not saying Makarian is the coach of the future. He's 70. It would be foolish to think that. He's a stop gap until EPO pulls their head out of their ass. Karagounis selected him because he trusts him to do his job unlike the clown EPO hand picked in the summer.

Michel was interviewed for the NT position by Karagounis.. needless to say, Karagounis decided Markarian was a better option.. in his world..

 

Markarian > Michel

Stafilidis > Xolebas

 

:D

pulling out Fetfa who was the onlyone threatning and putting kats in when he know we needed a goal was not helping him with any changes he made in regards to our style of play.

Sergio did the right thing. Sadly the EPO did not accept his resignation. 

 

We need the EPO to resign and start again including Karagounis. The constant idiocy of the EPO is damaging Greek football.

 

All that will happen if Sergio is allowed to leave is Karagounis will go on the hunt for another manager who he believes will protect the status quo.

True. A clean slate is needed from all sides. Rotten to the core.

I must add it is correct that he resigned after a Faroe loss, unlike Ranieri who wanted to stay and had to be sacked. He didnt inherit (again unlike Ranieri) a good team from his successor, in fact it was a disastrous and s%$#! team he got after Ranieri, but his achievement was small too.

We should get Michel, he is free agent now. If some (for example Spanish) club hires him, where will we found a competent guy who knows Greek football well enough?
