The bad thing is that the game with Aris is next week (probably Sep. 26) and falls in between the SL games against AEX and Olympiakos. Since this game is pretty much meaningless I would do a big rotation in that game preventing injuries and certain red cards to key players.

Lucescu has to do rotation. This cup game is almost meaningless. Aris will play as it's a final and as Christo said they will probably try to provoke us to get red cards. That will be a nightmare. I would say bring on the second team for that match. They should be able to smash Aris and they will be also getting their chance to play.

Kitsiou-Malezas-Crespo-Tosca

Canas-Shakhov

Warda-Pelkas-Karelis

Akpom

Then depending on how the match goes, El Kaddouri or Biseswar comes in for Pelkas, Pontus for Canas or Shakhov, and Limnios for Warda or Karelis.

My biggest worry is injuries and provocations for our players to be carded. After all on Sunday after that game we play against the team that is financing them.

If they weren't financing them, Aris would probably have remained in the lower leagues for a couple more years. Now, OSFP has a team that has one purpose, not to let PAOK win the league. Let's protect our team and don't fall in their traps.

Ach re bananarepublic Elladastan. Three games of the Greek Cup are postponed (AEX-Lamia, Panaitolikos-Panathinaikos and Panionios-Larisa) because there is no broadcasting. So what?!?!?! If it is not possible to play a game without camera’s?!?!?! How on earth did we manage to play games in the 60s?!?!!?

I do not hear anyone talking about fair play. The chartini will go chavale and relax to MD 5 while we (and OK the Gavs) must play a game before starting this derby. Playing game after game in the weekend and during the week. 

Where is the halifi when you need him?!?!?!

No chance of this affecting us, I hope?

Again there will be games postponed. This time because of the games in the SL that are postponed to Monday October 29th. Our game against Ergotelis is postponed to a day not known yet as we are scheduled to play again on November 3rd for SL against Atromitos. And so there is not the obligatory 3 days gap between the fixtures. We have another problem as our schedule is stuffend already with our EL-games.

Maybe we can play on the day the Ethniki plays for the NL and order our internationals to stay as qualification for the next stage is most unlikely 😈😈

Brilliant. EPO announced that the game against Ergotelis will be on November 14th at 15:00 EEST. What a bunch of nitwits. We might miss Tosca, Prijovic, Pelkas, Paschalakis, Warda and Varela as all countries have duties for the Nations League of the Africa Cup of Nations. And all the countries have the right to claim the players. And if a player refuses to go to his National team the FA of that country is entitled to have him suspended for the game of PAOK. Rezili. We can beat Ergotelis with the remaining players. Of course we can but if if this is the way EPO wants to sell her product ...... Hope there is no channel wanting to broadcast this match.

Tailor made to shoot us in the foot. So we'd be looking at something like this?

 

                       --Rey--

--Matos--Kacheridi--Crespo--Vieirinha--

           --Wernbloom--Canas--

   --Jaba--Biseswar--El Kaddouri--

                   --Akpom--

 

I'd assume Limnios MIGHT be called up, as would Karelis. It leaves us very thin on the wings. Perhaps if we run out of wingers completely, Kitsiou would be pushed up there (or Vieirinha, with Malezas starting as CB?). I don't think any of our youth players should be trusted for a game that we basically have to win.

Ούτως ή άλλως πρέπει να γίνει rotation σ' αυτό το παιχνίδι. Η 11άδα που έβαλε ο Πασχ είναι υπέρ αρκετή για να κερδίσει τον Εργοτέλη.

Don't forget Aggelos will be the coach of the NT, so he might be persuaded not to call up some of our players. In any case we will be missing some of our U-21 NT players as well since they have a play-off game against Austria for Euro, which means Limnios and Siabanis will not be available.

After this weekend MD 3 of the cup will be played. Friday December 21 the draw for the next phase will be held at the Office of EPO at Goody’s Park on 11:30 EEST. All group winners will be playing first game away. Clubs that played eachother in GS can’t be paired together.

Here are the seedings ahead of tomorrow's draw for the Round of 16:

SEEDED TEAMS

Atromitos
AEK Athens
Panathinaikos
PAOK
Olympiakos
Asteras Tripoli
OFI
Panionios

UNSEEDED TEAMS

PAS Giannina
PAS Lamia
Kissamikos
Ergotelis
Panahaiki Patra
Apollon Smyrnis
AO Xanthi
AE Larisa

PAOK can't be drawn with Ergotelis.

I believe the first game will take place January 8-10, 2019, which means it will be our next game.

Again, there are only three lower division teams in the next round. Had the retard neo-Greeks organised a cup like England or Germany I am sure there would be a few more to make it more romantic/exciting.

Anybody know when the draw is?

Εδώ τα ζευγάρια. Βέβαια θα γίνουν διπλοί αγώνες - μη γίνει καμια μαλακία και αποκλειστεί ο Θρύλος της καρδιάς μας. ΟΟΟΟΧΙ, σε περίπτωση που χάσει στην Ξάνθη, να υπάρχει δεύτερη ευκαιρία να διορθωθούν τα λάθη. Νεο-Ελληνες φονιάδες του αθλήματος. Το κύπελλο είναι για τις μικρότερες ομάδες ρεεεε, οχι να περνάνε οι μεγάλες!!!

 

Λαμία - Παναθηναϊκός

Ξάνθη - Ολυμπιακός 

Παναχαΐκή - ΠΑΟΚ

Απόλλων Σμύρνης - Ατρόμητος 

Εργοτέλης - ΟΦΗ

Κισσαμικός - ΑΕΚ

Λάρισα - Αστέρας Τρίπολης

ΠΑΣ Γιάννινα - Πανιώνιος.

Good draw for us. Katsouranis will be so conflicted.
