Do you want AEK because of their schedule? Or to get the confrontation out of the way?

yeah, seriously. 

im hoping for a two match leg against larisa and final against panionio.

what will probably happen is a paok vs panionios and a rematch for the final.

I also predict a rematch of the final.

I’m with Blackhawk, I’d prefer AEK in the semi final.  If they sit back which I expect them to do, we are more likely to wear them down over 180 minutes.  Also, if we play them in the final it’ll be at a neutral ground or in Athens which is a home game for them.  I’d rather they come and enjoy 90 minutes in Toumba instead.

That's a good point actually...having them travel up to us to get a taste of of our fans will only help us.

With two games we have a better chance to eliminate them. You get another chance if something goes wrong in the first game. If we play them in the final it will be on their home ground at OAKA.

The only bad thing is that the first leg is scheduled in between two tough games for us (Olympiakos, Tripoli)

I think PAOK has the depth to be able to play AEK between the Oly and Asteras game...depthwise PAOK is tops in the GSL so there is a definite advantage playing AEK over 2 legs.

Damn.  I would’ve preferred AEK.  Anyway ... now we have a final at OAKA to look forward to.

I’ve always thought a home and away 2 leg final is the fairest way to do it.  Like in the old days of the UEFA Cup.  Or was it the Cup Winners Cup ?

Assuming we progress to the final along with a AEK, I don’t even want to think about the violence in Athens.  Their ultras will be out for revenge and our ultras well they aren’t exactly the brightest sparks.  Ultra m*****es.

AEK managed to score a goal in 95th minute of the game against Larisa and secured a spot in the final against PAOK.

Should be a great final with both teams looking to prove themselves on the field. Good luck to both sides and hopefully the game gets played out without any incidents.

The final in my opinion will not end if it even starts. The current conditions are not right for this game to take place. Just my opinion.

Agreed. Final is a disaster waiting to happen. Not sure they will even be able to agree on a neutral site to play the game.

There is no neutral site. The game is scheduled to be played at OAKA. AEK's home field.

I'll be amazed if there isn't serious fan violence before the game and after the game.  Heck maybe even during the game.  I'll be surprised if the match itself isn't a complete fiasco.

Daft decision to play the game at OAKA considering what's happened since the Cup Final last year.  Keep believing EPO.

I'm actually not looking forward to this and will be relieved if the game just finishes without and injuries or death to fans.  As for the clubs themselves, I'm sure they will behave honourably.

From a security point OAKA is the best option... so it does make sense especially after last years final shenanigans from both set of fans

The best option from a security point of view is a secret location played without fans.  Anything else and there is a good chance there will be trouble, injuries, death.  Ridiculous proposition I know.  But if security is your first concern, that is the only way ... in Greece.

Have to admit, The Builder's goal last night was pretty special. Although for Larissa to have left AEKs best player on his own in the box is pretty criminal.

Also, Pelkas with another quality finish... does he ever score tap ins?
