I doubt karelis will play in play offs

i think around august he said he would be back in 2 months, which means he should be fine in the mid of november.

Something to keep our eyes on, Mitro, Tzavella, Stafylidi and Retso are one yellow away from missing the first leg of the play-off (assuming we get it done tonight) Losing Mitro would be a disaster, while if we lost both our left backs it would leave us with a hole

That's why Manolas, Donis and I think Samaria all took a yellow on purpose last game against Cyprus so they would miss this game and have a clean sheet going into the playoffs.. Those yellows that were taken were all on purpose.

tantra what were the positive times for the Greek National team since the last world cup? Please enlighten us. Begin with the Ranieri Euro qualification. Touch on the Greek National Federation Scandals, including the spying on the NT training facilities. As well expand on the infighting amongst the players. So please tell us of all the good times.

 

i never said there were positive times.

the main culprits were santos & epo. you can thank them and yourself for following them blindly for the dark times that followed.

i don't think they're idiots enough to take a yellow in a game against gibraltar? i believe stafylidis should have taken one too though. but i can see them taking one in the first playoff game and miss the second one.

If they were smart Mitro should have taken a yellow in the Cyprus game so he would miss this game and have a clean slate for the playoffs... It puts him in danger getting a yellow in the first leg of the playoffs and missing the second game..

In reality Mitroglou doesnt even need to play to get a result in this game, but after the Faroe Islands disaster i wouldnt take any chances.  As a striker he should not be getting a caution.  After 2 goals i would take him off.

Ya very true I was just thinking that.. we lost to Luxembourg and the fore islands twice so why take the chance.. Inagree if we are up by a couple take him out..

I honestly think that Skibbe's line up without injury is alwyas going to be

Karnezis

Toro - Sokratis - Manolas - Stafylidis

Zeka - Samaris(or Tziolis/Tachtsidis if height is needed)

Mantalos Fortounis Donis

Mitroglou

We see Stafylidis up front usually when we have noone else available. If Stafylidis manages to get anyplaytime I believe he will kick Tzavellas from the stating spot and go LB instead.

So Lazaros keeping up with his unrealistic form in both Europe and Greek League, as well as deliver in this match(even though its just Gibraltar a proper winger will probably destroy that weak defence on his own). will probably kick Mantalos and Tzavellas off the starting line up. It might be the first time in a while(Salpiggidis early 30s maybe) since we have had at least decent players on the wings. Can;t wait to see how that works though. I can't judge Lazaros from this match but he has been dragging Aek on his own for last year(Mantalos didnt evne do that well and he was still getting called up) and now with a much more competitive roster everyone still looks up to him in moments of crisis.

Ya gotta keep an eye on that can't have Mitroglou pick up a card. We have to put them away early and then sub him off.

Missed the first 15 mins have we had any chances yet?

Not much. We're toying with them, which I don't like. A lot of lazy longballs
