He hasn't even had the scans to see the extent of the injury yet. You can't say he will probably miss the playoffs at this stage

A blow for the Pirates, a very good CB. Not a match winner by any stretch, KPaps can come in, do a job, get a yellow card in each of the two matches and Manolas will be back after these two matches anyway, as Kyriako then gets to sit out.

It's time Skibbe carries a back up RB in Bakakis for Toro as he has slowed up abit.

^Agreed Skibbe definitely needs carry a back up for Toro. kpaps can do a good job but by not having Manolas I think would lower our chances of advancing... I just think he's that important to this team.. Lets hope whatever the injury is that he somehow recovers in time which looks doubtful right now..

J man, I get the hype on Manolas, at a big club sure. He plays like he has another gear up his sleeve but doesn't use it. It is something he has to get back-passion. He is no Sokratis these days.

Nah Kyriakos is a good CB bust Manolas is a top tier one. It's gonna make a difference if we play vs Croatia and Italy. The others are not so scary

Agree Kpaps is good but not on Manolas level.. I think his absence will really dent our chances.. let's pray he makes it back as we can't afford to lose any of our top defenders as that's what this team is built around..

it will be a huge miss but definitely not to the level of mitroglou for example where his back ups are 2nd league players!!!!!  (especially with karelis being out)

going on to the next campaign that's the squad i'd like to be around for the most part. 

 

karnezis, kapino, vlachodimos

torosidis, retsos

sokratis, papadopoulos

manolas, siovas

stafylidis, lykogiannis

samaris, tachtsidis, charisis

zeca, kourmpelis, siopis

fortounis, pelkas

donis, lazaros

mantalos, mpakasetas

mitroglou, karelis

 

i know this is not possible judging from what skibbe has shown us so far.

he'll keep calling up and starting washed up ex-player tziolis as well as 2nd league players with no playing time such as vellios or diamantakos, gianniotas etc. ofc we shouldn't forget the amazing tzavellas and maniatis duo especially the first who is starting over a premier league defender.

Looks like Skibbe wants to stay and has told the Epo but they want to wait to see if he makes the World Cup before they commit to him.. The Epo has also noted they haven't been big fans of his call ups..

Is Karelis close to a return? Other striker options wouldn’t  even start for Canada

No one knows o think he is training slowly with his team Genk but I'm not sure if he will be ready for November.

i know this is not possible judging from what skibbe has shown us so far.

It goes to show how limited we are at the forward positions. Mitroglou is really our only option.

I don't if Kourbelis, Siopis or Charisis are capable of lifting the team from the midfield. I believe Samaris and Tachtsidis are our only options. Also Zeca. I'd like to see Bouchalakis have a chance. 

What does Charisis bring to the table? I hear some good and bad about him. What are his best attributes?

I don't know if leaving out Maniatis and Tzavellas is a good idea. Maniatis is a workhorse and Tzavellas takes good set pieces. They are also more experienced. 

Pelkas would be a good addition. I don't know why you left out Gianniotas. You must of forgot him.

Donis and Lazaros our best wingers. Gianniotas is not far behind. 

Diamantakos, Vellios and Tziolis are not needed which is obvious. 

Overall that's a good team set up. I'd like to see Karelis back. Donis needs to start. As he has replaced the dynamic duo of Fetfatzidis and Ninis. I'd like to see Holebas back in the team, but I'd rather Stafylidis because he can over take him and he is proving to be a weapon for us.
