Cyprus vs. Greece ( 7 October 2017, GSP Stadium, Nicosia )

Recommended Posts

I didn't watch the game but I keep on hearing people say that Fortounis is not as passionate as he should be. This is a problem and it's starting irritate me. He is a good talent and with a bit more hustle he can be a great talent that can one day be playing in La Liga or Bundesliga. If he doesn't show hustle in the next match he can get out the of the starting 11 and stay on the bench.

Rockafella Hugh Hefner Skank, your passion is up there with the greats like Karagounis, Sampson, Leonidas, La Mendel etc.  I Must disagree this time bruh, Zeca has an attacking game, Tachtsidis is an asset, Samaris I never had him in the highest category. I think he should of played as an 8, not a 6. Tziolaraaa is not too bad, off the bench. We have a good squad.

Kourbelis and Siopis are screaming for an opportunity. We don't know how good they are cause they don't get a shot-like Bouchalakis and hoping to see Villafanez.

I've been thinking about putting Samaris as the number 8. I want to Hinton attacking positions. He is capable of scoring some spectacular goals. 

Kourbelis and Siopis look like they are hungry for an opportunity. 

I would really like to see Gianniotas play more often. There's something about him that makes you think he can change the game in seconds. His speed and skill is very valuable to have. Imagine him and Stafylidis working together on the left. I don't know why Skibbe doesn't understand that.

I agree also on Gianniotas Deanos. People want fat Fetta-Fetfa so why not Gianniota who is a pocket rocket too? We will get the same positive attacking output. Samaris scores one of the best goals I've ever seen at a World Cup and he got banished to no.6 deep-lying. What a Vlakia!

I actually thought Fortounis did pretty well. He took all of our free kicks near the box and corners, and is pretty much our dead ball specialist.

If you look at the highlights. 1st half nearly sets up Manolas for a headed goal, misses narrowly. Takes the corner that leads to Tziolis goal. Then makes a good run into the box, but Mantalos can't get it to him. In the 2nd half, takes the corner that sets up Torosides for a free header on goal. Also, I recall one play in 2nd half where he makes a run into box but Mitroglou shoots wide from a narrow angle when a pass was there for him to tap in. Got a knock to his knee late in the game in what was a pretty gutsy challenge, when team mates were getting tired.

Cyprus were surprisingly a tough opponent.

fortounis was winning tackles in the midfield and creating chances and getting into good positions to score. he was solid imo. there was some chances that mitro should have passed to fortounis but chose to shoot on bad angles.

Mitroglou on a bad angle vs. fortounis on wide open might be equal chance at a goal though lol.

tziolis actually had a very good game. a goal and closed spaced up in a way that Samaris didn't vs. belgium.

this squad would be so much better with holebas and fetfa. but at least we have donis and an in form laz now.

Its funny that people in this forum do not see the positives of the what this team does. How they focus mainly on the flaws, but don't see how sometimes the positives of certain players on the field outweigh the cons they carry. 

Does anybody actually realize that the two players alot of people were going against, were the ones who scored the last two games and some people aren't even giving them the credit they deserve from that and continue to "boo" them or "wish for them to be switched"?

 

Reminds me of the time we had santos joined every major competition with him and wanted him out because he kept putting kara and kats.

As I stated previousy im hoping Skibbe rewards some players who have been called up and not fielded against Gibraltar. First half we should play our best and make a lead that can't be lost then Skibbe can honestly experiment as much as he wants.

That's good to hear about Fortounis hopefully he can keep it up and score a goal or two. We need him especially for the play offs and the World Cup itself. Mantalos is another option to play as the number 10. Mantalos looked good against Cyprus in both games. It looks he has elevated to another level, maybe the wrist band is doing him good. We also have Lazaros and Stafylidis who are dead ball specialists. Does anyone know if Torosidis is injured for the match against Gibraltar? Also does anyone think players like Kourbelis and Gianniotas will be given a chance? We need to win this game. We should be fine.
