If that’s the case I want to see Donis with Masouras and Kolouris next game

for bosnia i'd like to see something like this

      kolouris/mitroglou

donis fortounis       masouras

      zeca/kourb samaris

koutris siovas sokratis bakakis 

            vlacho

 

so weird that he started bakasetas over donis. baka must be really good in training or has a really good agent

koulouris is in form of his life 22 goals in 29 games this season. similar to how mitroglou was in 2013 before the injury

He's been a featured under-performer in most of the NT faceplants....but everyone keeps excusing him because "he gets no service"

I have never excused Mitroglou. He has never performed consistently for the national team. He is slow which makes it worse. It has to come down to our players abilities. Today they parked the bus but I thought created good enough movement to make things happen. We need to work on our finishing. We created a lot of chances.

Mitroglou is the only proven goal scorer on the NT with 17 goals in 65 appearances. His production has slowed down but look at the midfielders that have been tasked to give him the ball the last few years. Back when Karagounis and Kats were playing he was firing in the goals. He was huge for us vs Romania and a big reason Greece made the 2014 WCUP. Hopefully he will get it going during this campaign and hope he will be good to play in June.

Just looked around on some of the other games, Ireland beat Gilbratar 0-1. Italy beat finland 2-0 but Finland had the same number of shots on goal as Italy.

Liechtenstein  is one of the worst minnows so I wouldn't get carried away. Even Donis's goal I think most quality goalies would save that. their population is 40 000.

Ireland barely got a win vs Gibraltar. Scotland got torched at Kazakstan 3-0.

Yeah you are right. Our players can’t akways put it on the platter for him. He needs to more than be a target man. He needs to create something out of himself for once.

 Rep of Ireland beat Gibraltar 1-0. Pretty sure Gibraltar is a worse team and Rep of Ireland are rated higher then us.. Even when we had Kara and company we’ve never beat Liechtenstein by more then 2 goals. Let’s be happy with the start and see if we can build on this with confidence..    Kazakhstan  beat Scotland 3-0.

It would have been nice to see what Mitro could have done with Donis and Masouras on the wing together I think they cold have created space for Mitro. I think Kolouris deserves a shot he’s been on fire..  Let’s just hope Angelo saw enough of bakasetas to not start him. Bakakis for me was a disappointment his crosses are horrible.. I really like the calming effect of Siovis I think he can do the job with Socratis against Bosnia.. Let’s pray we at least get 1 point against Bosnia maybe get lucky and our “true wingers” can catch Bosnia on the counter!!

A win is a win at least. I’ll take it. Even though there are probably more people on my street than all of Liechtenstein. As far as Mitroglou, 18 goals is 65 games as a striker is horrible. Considering half probably came during that 3 month hot stretch he had that even makes it worse. Go Koulouris!

Actually as JimmyP said above , 17 goals in 65 appearances proves how badly he's performed with the NT considering he's never been challenged as striker due to a lack of options. I doubt he'd be able to keep up with Donis and Masouras....Koulouris is on fire and warrants a go against Bosnia....if he doesn't perform then sure, bring on Mitroglou.

Mitroglou could be better, but he has hit the back of the net more than any one we have. If he doesn’t pick it up when he comes back then I’m all for starting Donis or koulouris. As for Bakasetas he better not be in the line up and I think the coach will keep him on the bench after his performance today.

yeah mitroglou is still our best striker he's not the problem. we need to drop bakasetas and put donis/masouaras on wings fortounis cam and should be okay zeca samaris midfield and bakakis (toro is better but injured cuz he's a good crosser) and staf if he comes back in form after injury

Mitroglou hasn't played much at club level looks out of sorts. At his best, he is our best striker.

The team will be set up differently in Sarajevo and I can see us playing cautious and using counter attacks. Donis will be handy on the counter. A draw won't be a bad result.

Siovas and Kourbelis were both good today.

Possible starters for Bosnia match

? 4 2 3 1

  • Vlachodimos
  • Bakakis-Soc-Siovas-Koutris
  • Kourbelis-Zeca
  • Donis-Samaris-Fortounis
  • Koulouris

Masouras sub

      UEFA Nations League format confirmed
      UEFA has confirmed the final competition rules and regulations for the UEFA Nations League, less than a year before the first match is due to be played on 6 September 2018. The new logo for the tournament was also unveiled following Wednesday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon.
      All you need to know about the UEFA Nations League
      2018/19 UEFA Nations League: how it works
      The UEFA Nations League is a new competition that aims to ensure the continued success of national team football by replacing most friendlies with competitive matches and by allowing all nations to play against equally ranked teams.
      All 55 UEFA associations enter.
      The teams are split into four leagues, A–B–C–D, according to their position in the UEFA National Team Coefficient Rankings following the end of the European Qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup (as per 11 October 2017; play-off results will not be included).
      League A will consist of the 12 top-ranked teams. The next 12 teams will be in League B, the next 15 in League C and the remaining 16 in League D.
      Leagues A and B will each comprise four groups of three teams.
      League C will contain one group of three teams and three groups of four sides; League D will be formed by four groups of four teams.
      All draw procedures to be confirmed. Matches to be played home and away between September and November 2018 (teams will play four or six games depending on the size of their group).
      The four group winners of League A will qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, to be held in June 2019, with two semi-finals, a third-place match and the final. One host country will be appointed by the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2018 from among the finalist teams.
      The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion and those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A, B and C will be relegated.
      National teams will thus either be competing to become UEFA Nations League winners, or be fighting for promotion and to avoid relegation.
      The League Phase Draw for the UEFA Nations League will take place at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne on 24 January 2018, when the new UEFA Nations League trophy will also be unveiled.
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020 remains largely the same (with 24 finalists in all), although the European Qualifiers will now begin in the March after a major tournament instead of immediately in September (i.e. March 2019 in this case). No team will gain auomatic qualification as hosts (there are 13 host nations in all).
      Qualifying group stage (20 teams qualify)
      The teams will be split into ten groups of five or six, and the top two from each group will qualify for the final tournament, determining the first 20 places.
      Play-offs (4 teams qualify) 
      The last four EURO places will be won through the European Qualifiers play-offs, which will be contested by the 16 UEFA Nations League group winners (i.e. the four group winners in each of the four divisions).
      Each league will have a path of its own and each path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final.  The winner of each path will win a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.
      If a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, then their spot will go to the next best-ranked team in their league. If a league does not have four teams to compete, the remaining slots are allocated to teams from another league, according to the overall UEFA Nations League rankings.

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι του Ολυμπιακού στα προκριματικά
       

       
      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στον τρίτο προκριματικό είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: Χάποελ Μπερ Σεβά (Ισραήλ), Αστάνα (Καζακστάν), Παρτιζάν (Σερβία), Ριέκα (Κροατία), Ρόζενμποργκ (Νορβηγία), Σλάβια Πράγας (Τσεχία), Χαφναρφιόρντουρ (Ισλανδία), Βιτορούλ (Ρουμανία), Ζίλινα (Σλοβακία), Ζαλγκίρις (Λιθουανία) 

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στα play offs είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: ΑΠΟΕΛ (Κύπρος), Μάλμε (Σουηδία), Μπάτε Μπορίσοφ (Λευκορωσία), Μάριμπορ (Σλοβενία), Καραμπάχ (Αζερμπαϊτζάν). 

      Ο Ολυμπιακός φέτος (όπως και πέρυσι) θα έχει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία σε αυτούς τους δύο προκριματικούς, καθώς έχει συγκεντρώσει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία (64.580) την τελευταία πενταετία, ενώ δεύτερη (και αρκετά πίσω του) είναι η Σέλτικ με 42.785 βαθμούς.
