Regarding Koulouris, he's still linked with a loan as well. We definitely still need another striker. I also wonder if we'll see a k20 player on occasion, if we do lose both Klaus and Koulouris.

Or maybe we can use one of our five goalkeepers in that position instead.

Hahahaha!

It's good that Klaus is leaving. He is moving on and we get rid of a player who probably would score no goals. Now Savvidis has to buy a real striker with a good salary. No better than Prijovic', but still a decent guy who will be coming from bench successfully, but also would be a starter when Prijovic is injured/suspended/out of form/exhausted. It is a very important transfer to me if we want to go for the championship and progress even further to my favorite Europe.

I figured El Kaddouri would wait until after we qualify to make his decision, but he's clearly on his way to Thessaloniki today. Might see it announced in the next day. As for the other names we've seen, I wouldn't expect them before next week.

So ... El Kaddouri, is this guy any good ?  I mean, I haven't really been following it because frankly I just thought it was media m-a-l-a-k-i-e-s but it looks like this is going to happen.

His highlights reels haven't been particularly exciting but it seems he is relatively versatile. Transfermarkt lists him as an attacking midfielder but the Greek sites say he plays as a CM/RM. We really need another (at least) Biseswar-level creative player, so hopefully this works out.

Another name thrown in, because why not? Oscar Hiljemark, from Genoa. He's a 25 year old Swedish CM, intermittently called up to their NT. I'm a little confused by this one, as it looks like Genoa only bought him this year (though he played on loan there for the second half of last season). Seems he's not in their new coach's plans

Torres, btw, is "talking over his options" with his coach. I think Torres is the more important potential buy (though I'm skeptical about it actually happening), as we don't have a true DM to compete with/replace/be backup for Canas. For Hiljemark's position, we already have Shakhov, Cimirot, and Kace (though if either of those last two leave, we'll need the reinforcement).

We need organization first. The team is in disarray.

And now no decent player will come to the team without European competition.

Hard luck guys, I was hoping to see PAOK play some week nights this year. If it is any comfort, now the team can focus and be more fit/hungry for maximum results domestically?

No hard luck.  Poor team attitude and preparation from the day Ivic left.  We got what we deserved and were not unlucky.

I think Sakhov and Cimirot need to go ASAP.  I don't give a s%$#! what anyone says, those 2 are worthless.  The 1 in every 3 matches that Cimirot has a good match, and that's usually just because he runs around like an animal helping out the defense.  I remember watching the Garcia-Vitolo combo, THAT is how you do it.  Not like these 2 clowns who can;t string together 2 passes, or even control the ball with one touch....Prijovic had a very Klaus-like appearance today.  Basically invisible.

Boston when there is no plan on the field all the players can look like crap and if there is a solid plan even average players can play magnificently. I don't think they are as bad as you are saying at least individually. Especially Cimirot he is a fine midfielder. The problem is that there is no plan on how we keep the ball and how we move the ball forward. Worse thing is our stamina which makes things even harder. Only Biseswar helps the team improve because is the only one who will keep the ball and make the rest to run on the space. Otherwise, there is no motion, the players are stuck and we cannot create anything. One has the ball and the rest are 30 meters away just wondering around. Running with no meaning.

This is basically the same team that beat PAO 4-0 and played very well against Olympiakos both home and away.  Say what you will but how they can drop their performance so much is a messed up.  The club, knowing that they had play-offs should have the team fit and raring to go.  Instead, we took our opposition lightly.  A team who eliminated Galatasaray, has an artificial pitch (a huge advantage for them) and is fully fit being 20 rounds into their season.  We just assumed we would qualify, because we always do.  Yep, no worries.

The worst aspect of all this is that we got thoroughly out played.  It's one thing to dominate a game, create 20 chances and then the opposition score a lucky goal.  It's another to be playing like gatakia against amateurs.

Lucescu has a lot of work to do ...

We can  keep writing paragraphs of crap but the truth is Savvidi is to blame. 

Whether it's to do with money spent on players or the people appointed into positions, it is he who puts them there and signs the cheques. 

Last year we waited half a season for a striker. 

This year we're still waiting for a central defender and only just signed a midfielder today. 

This year we signed a manager only to sack him just before the season. 

People have to be accountable for their decisions. 

Its Saviddis club. Its on his head.

He is responsible for everything. So, give him credit and blame him at the same time. His leadership doesn't work and he are saying it almost since he came. He didn't change his approach and I don't know if he will ever do it. The only thing I know it's that we had enough s%$#! for 5 years. There is no way this circus will continue for 5 more years. Somewhere down the road horrible things will happen. And I am talking about αποχές, καταλήψεις, ξύλο και φασαρίες.

For me the worst thing is that he always hides. He is on a plane half of his life and he sends messages through his employees who either have no idea how we feel or they are just puppets/p u s s i e s.

The only way I would believe something will change is if he calls for a press conference and openly admit all the bs he did and give us his new plan on how he will turn things around. He has to admit all his mistakes and all the bs he told since he came. I am talking about trophies, champions league, etc. But instead of that, he will probably suck Michel and find another one to replace him and have his puppets writing about how many millions he gave and that we would be Aris if it wasn't for him. You know what? Maybe that's the problem. Savvidis thinks we would be Aris without him and he convinced us that we would have been Aris and without even noticing we have become Aris. And don't give me the Cup speech. Because who feels proud of just one Cup. Goumenos got two Cups, but what we remember? Αποχές, συνθήματα, ξύλο, μίρλα, γκρίνια, μιζέρια. On the other hand we were proud of the Zagorakis/Santos era even though we didn't win a stupid Cup. Because back then we felt that something good was happening. Five years of Savvidis era we didn't feel the same way not a single day, did we?

its simple savvidi stays, but he let's the people who he employs to make football decisions make those decisions. Without interference from him, or his boneheaded son who seems pre-occupied with endearing himself to gate 4 ultras. If the technical director and co have a poor 2 years, fine turn them over but you must trust these people to make the calls on coaches/players

Woah how ungrateful you all are tbh i am in shock. No pride, no culture and some really gutless digs. 

Savvidis saved our team from the fate of aek, iraklis, aris of 3rd division, paid all our debts when all of greece was against him, improved our training facilities, improved our youth with financial investment and brought us some respect financially in Europe whereby we can attrack decent players and some mistakes and you guys all start shooting. 

Im guttered no europe all year just corrept boring GSL yet im not going to turn on savidis. 

Turn on the journalists who stay quiet never report problems then we lose a game and all of a sudden theu knew all along the problems.... whu wants kolka, toskitsis etc blaming these backroom guys prior to euro exit? Why didnt they interview ivic? Now after a loss they knew it all along??? 

We have no excuse now but to win the league and pressure should be on Savvidi to make 2 big name signings now to overcome this embarrasing and seriously damaging europa league exit. Not telling him to leave!

^^ word is savvidis is considering no more signings, as a result of us not qualifying for the group stage. I doubt that's true but nothing surprises me anymore

Πώς θα πιέσεις τον Σαββίδη αγαπητέ μου; Σε γράφει στ @@ του όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Δεν το έχεις καταλάβει; Εξάλλου εσύ μας λες ότι θα ήμασταν Άρης αν δεν ήταν αυτός. Τώρα μας λες ότι πρέπει να πιεστεί ο Σαββίδης να φέρει 2 μεγάλα ονόματα; Πώς θα πιέσεις τον ευεργέτη σου; Εξάλλου έφτασε 26 Αυγούστου. Η ομάδα ήταν έτοιμη από πέρυσι και ήθελε κάποιες δυνατές μεταγραφές. Αντ' αυτού έφυγε ο προπονητής, οι παίχτες δεν ήρθαν, ήρθε άλλος προπονητής τον οποίο έδιωξε κι αυτόν και τώρα είναι έτοιμος να διώξει και τον τεχνικό διευθυντή. Φταίει ο Άρνεσεν και ο Μίχελ; Ο Ίβιτς, ο Λουτσέσκου και ο Στέφενς; Ή φταίει αυτός που τους φέρνει και τους απολύει όποτε γουστάρει; Αυτός που πηγαίνει για πρωτάθλημα στις σκιές και δεν βγαίνει να μιλήσει ανοιχτά; Πώς θα χτυπήσεις τον Ολυμπιακό ρε μάγκα; Ποιο πρωτάθλημα μου λες; 26 Αυγούστου έφτασε και ακόμα αμυντικό χαφ και κεντρικό αμυντικό δεν πήραμε. Μήπως κάποιος είναι τσιγγούνης και περίμενε τα 3-4 μύρια του Ουέφα για να φέρει αυτούς τους δύο παιχταράδες; Αλλά όχι, είμαστε αχάριστοι αν μιλήσουμε για τον Σαββίδη γιατί πλήρωσε τα χρέη. Γιατί αλλιώς θα ήμασταν Άρης. Το είπα και πριν όμως. Γίναμε Άρης φίλε μου. Είσαι μία ομαδούλα όπως ο Άρης πλέον. Γι' αυτό και σε απέκλεισε το χωριό από τη Σουηδία. Και δεν αποτελεί έκπληξη, γιατί και ο Άρης και ο Ηρακλής αυτό θα έκαναν. Έγινες Άρης λοιπόν και τώρα... γουστάρεις!
