If Zambrano does sign, that would be huge. Last I heard, we had some competition from one of the Israeli clubs for him.

If we get Zambrano then we're really just lacking a proper backup striker for Prijovic.

I'd say that Mak will be the one to pinch hit as a striker when it comes to rotation. (kolouri is around as well) 
But going in to a season with only one starting quality striker is not ideal.

Because his finishing is so good, ha ha.

Well we never thought that signing of Vierihnia could actually be cover for right back and we can finally unleash Matos in his natural position, as a centre forward ;)

God damn Matos has a good header on him.  Honestly, he'd scored a lot more goals than most in the PAOK squad.

If Koulouris can do what Klaus couldn't last season (be fed), then we'll be fine with him as the #2. New season, upgraded team, let's see how this goes.

Now to get the confirmation of our new CB and I'll be able to rest easy.

We haven't found out his wages yet.  I'm sure for the wages he's on I'll expect 10+ goals and 10+ assists per season.

I'm reading 4mm for 3 years

A little less than I feared, but still way more than we should pay.

Also reading now that Henrique has agreed to the loan, but PAOK has refused a buy out clause. Good move on our part, if true.

Also Qarabag will pay his full salary (700K) and apparently also 500K for the loan.

I agree pash that it is good that there is no buyout clause with Qarabag. If they really want him after this season the buyout clause is 5 mil.

For five million, I wouldn't argue against a sale. Hell, I'd toss in a hand job too.

Get ready little Savvidis, you might be called upon to perform.

Wikipedia already has him listed as a PAOK player FWIW

I think he was faking the injury in order put pressure on Wolfsburg to release him. Hopefully the past couple weeks he was in Thessaloniki were not spent in gyradika.

Never fear, he's been in our bougatzidiko

Is Lucesco a 4-4-2 guy?  Do we now have the talent in the backfield to pull off a 3-5-2 if Sabrano is on board?

 

 

He's used the 4-4-2 a few times at the end of games. Remember that Mistakidis also can play as second striker (personally I think he's even better there). Lucescu will definitely have some options if he wants to go with two up front.

Not as sure about the 3-5-2 - I mean, last year's team did fine with it a few times, but rarely against strong opposition. Tudor made a 3-4-2-1 "work" as well, which is really not so different a formation.

Lucescu is also a fan of the 4-2-3-1, so I think we'll see a lot of this in the next month or so. Hopefully it's not *too* defensive.

--Matos--Varela--Samprano--Leveque--

              --Canas--Mauricio--

    --Campos--El Khaddouri--Mak--
