Taxiarchis Fountas with 2 goals for Rapid Wien, I’m surprised he is only 23... has been around for long time, not a bad little player at all

I’ve always thought highly of him ever since he was at AEK. He was only 17 and was carrying the team on his back in a time where AEK was at its worst.

Dimitris Diamantakos scored the 2-2 for St. Pauli against Lübeck in the first round of the DFB-Pokal (German cup) to earn them extra time. In the last minute of the extra time (and a 3-3 score) he was sent of with a red card. St. Pauli reached the next phase after winning the penalty shootout.

Thanks for the updates. Diamantakos actually has his own thread.

Antonis Stergiakis was sent of yesterday as his team Slavia Sofia met Ludogorets. 

Look at this, but don’t forget to sit steady in your chair: https://www.sport24.gr/football/EllinesExoterikou/video-o-stergiakhs-apovlhthhke-me-apofash-skandalo-toy-diaithth.5583612.html

Kioumourtzoglou scored his first goal in the eredivisie. Just scored the 1-1 in ‘63 away against Feyenoord. Still 15 minutes and stoppage time to go.

I know that Retsos has his own thread but there is a talk about Kitsiou here.

Retsos spends most of his time at RB at Leverkusen.

I think he should be our RB since Bakakis ain;t cutting it.

At least versus better opposition where we need to be more cautious and need better defensive players.

If he continues to progress in that position and considering he plays at the highest level, definitely can make a case for that.

Leonidas Stergiou is a 17 year old center back playing in Switzerland with St.Gallen. He has been in a starter in 18 of their 20 league matches so far and his team sit on top of the Swiss Super league. He is born and raised in Switzerland to a Serbian Mother and a Greek father (according to wikipedia)

EPO is aware of him and is apparently interested in him. Can JVS pull it off again and convince another Greek aboard to play with the Ethniki? It'll be tricky as this kid appears to have the world at his feet at only 17 playing regular senior football at a decent level. It should also be noted he is a Swiss youth international from under 15's-Under 19's.

Former Panathinaikos midfielder, Theofanis Tzandaris has signed with Slovak club Spartak Trnava - I thought he was a good player and could have ended up somewhere better but that's life I guess

Katsikas saw his contract with Dinamo Bucharest dissolved. He is free to sign a contract whenever he wants as the transfer window does not apply to him.

Saw he showed up in Belarus, playing for champions Dynamo Brest. But he is a sub most of the time and has not played this new season in ghe only League that is not suspended dus to the Corona outbreak.

Fountas has continued his form coming out of lock-down, last weekend he scored the fourth goal and assisted the first and second in a 0-4 away win against Sturm Gratz. Mid-week he came off the bench to score the winner against LASK, moving Rapid into 2nd position.

His goal comes from a defensive error, you can see it from around 3.07

He is on fire like to see where he plays for the national team. It seems as though he is succeeding at ST. He can easily play CAM and Wing. A good player who has turned his career around and is only 24-25 years old.

Another assist for him over the weekend Rapid won 2-1, he was subbed off after 70 minutes. 

They play again tomorrow so hopefully he continue his remarkable season. Surely he's deserving of his own topic at this point?

For me, to merit a thread, a player has to have played an impactful role with the national team and/or meet at least one of the following criteria:

1. Belongs to a very high profile club (i.e. Mavropanos at Arsenal)

2. Earns consistent minutes at a club in a top 5 league (England, Spain, Germany, Italy, France)

3. Capped consistently and plays a considerable role at a club from a second tier league (i.e. Netherlands, Portugal)

Fountas has been capped 3 times by the NT with zero impact, and plays in a mid-tier league.

Albeit he is having a great season from what I am reading. I will gladly make him his own thread if that is what members want.
