  1. Did anyone else crack a massive smile when they showed Otto?

  2. I will say this he nailed it in regards to super league fan support and overrated foreign players. There has to be more home grown talent I remember seeing I believe PAOK 11 not one greek player or maybe 1 its ridiculous. Too much focus in greece on being a hooligan over playing football..

  3. Things have gone sideways for the Ethniki yet again for another qualification cycle. We landed in a difficult group though getting Sweden was slighlty better than some other Pot 2 teams and other groups at the time ie. Switzerland and Ukraine based on their pre Euro performances. The injuries to key players especially Fortounis (yet again) is very hard to overcome given his technical and attacking ability that we lack. Also missing Manolas, Siovas, and Sokratis due to utter stupidity hurts our cause too. Coaching has cost us a couple points already as JVS got everything wrong vs Georgia in what was a must 3pts and now with Sweden winning it really sticks out! I just hope our luck can eventually turn around but the EPO are going to have to find a smart coach who knows how to work with our players and doesnt get involved in this mickey mouse BS that JVS has initiated with our key players that have been banned from the team. We are just hurting ourselves over and over from after the 2014 World Cup. The NT has to be qualifying regularly for major tournaments especially with the expansion of the EUROS and we missed twice. Its frigin UNACCEPTABLE!!

  4. Game over, 2-1 Sweden. Doesn't change anything for us. We still need to win our games. Anything other than a win on Sunday pretty much ends our chances.

  5. Must be nice that a player from the ethniki, even though ruled out, came anyway in hopes he can help. Players that want to play for Greece!!

  6. Yeah Savvidis reads the Phantis PAOK forum every day and what we say here is going to change his mind. If I was him and I had to deal with the most obnoxious fans that don't appreciate anything I would have quit long time ago.

  7. Wow i give JVS props for being so direct when speaking about the state of football in Greece with regards to the GSL.

  8. He can complain all he likes his tactics have sucked and look now what happens when you actually try to score. Our players are good enough no doubt and he doesn't choose the play the absolute best Greek players so why complain? Just on today how good is Tsimikas my goodness the kid is a star. It's like Giourkas all over again but this time on the left. Also Tzolis when he came on really gave us a different attacking threat cutting in from the right.

  10. Just watched the game Was very exciting and so proud of the team for getting that win and doing it with good football too. But im left with a bad taste in my mouth. This win just makes me feel even more upset about the games we should have won. Imagine we win at least one of the kosovo matche and/or against georgia. Anyways, let's see if we can make something from this win. I doubt it, and i don't want to get my hopes up to be disappointed again. I will say this, though, If Tziolos is fit, it is 100% criminal to not play him.

  16. Prouder ? Maybe psefto pride. I can tell you what we were back then - we were poorer, unorganised and lacking trophies. We were the bitches of Athens with no owner who could stand up for the club (because that’s how it works in Greece unfortunately). All we had were our european nights (and they were good) the occasional derby win against POK (but we knew deep down we would not win the title) and the fans/Toumba ( but the fans even shat on that by getting us banned for 5 years). We would pay our players peanuts and even then fail to pay them and have to release them or sell our talented players. Shameful and worse, embarrassing. I’ll take what we have now over that. I’ll take having a respectable budget, 4 Cups, 1 League title thanks. I do agree with you the signings have been fairly disappointing this summer - I expected better - but compared to the old days, man, you needed Xanax to get through those days - they were rough.

  17. Maybe the rage can be like the old days and we get banned for 5 years from Europe. Ah those were the days.

  18. So, how do we feel about JVS now? I'm suddenly very encouraged about the long-term prospects, especially with the likes of Tsimikas, Mavropanos, Douvikas, Tzolis, etc... coming into their own. Not gonna happen overnight. But I see the path... thoughts?

  19. Καλή η νίκη αλλά τι να την κάνεις όταν φέρνεις ισοπαλίες με Γεωργία και Κόσοβο; 10 βαθμούς θα είχαμε με νίκες με ένα μάτς λιγότερο απο τους Ισπανούς. Μαλακίες, τα ίδια και τα ίδια εδώ και 7 χρόνια.

  21. It's just a lot of negative sentiment now. We need to just put the past behind us and move forward. What has happened, is over, we need to move forward. At the very least, play for pride.

  22. What pisses me off the most about JVS is in a friendly he will have the team playing so much better and a complete different style but as soon as its a game that counts he plays the complete opposite then he did in the friendly. Explain the logic of using a different line up and a different style in a friendly compared to a qualification game. Instead of using a style and line up that will mirror the qualification game so the team can get familiar with each other and the style he completely does the opposite.

  23. He made a mess of the whole situation, we played two different game plans against Switzerland and Kosovo when we needed to work on a game plan to have us execute as best possible vs Kosovo, we ended up playing much better vs the Swiss with a LB at LW and an out of form Vrousai at RW but this still worked better than going with two strikers for the first time with only a CAM to support them and no real wingers on the field, only hope was Tsimikas runs on the left, this left us hamstrung, we had two strikers with little to do, I thought Pavlidis's hold up play was poor and Douvikas got one chance and finished it well but that's all we offered him. When your spine is Bakasetas and Bouchalakis your always gona struggle, look at what Siopis was doing... you need guys that give 200% like him not these slow ass poodles, Bouchalakis had the ball punched out to him, open goal that needed a lob, he passed the ball back to the keeper... come on!! This has a been a royal F*** up and JVS never learns from his mistakes

  25. None of the other games matter. They just need to do their job and win. That’s it.

  26. So they need to jump Sweden, and Spain will have more to play for now they aren't even assured 1st anymore. Even then will need to go into playoff for 2nd spot in which they won't be seeded. It's looking grim. Just beat Kosovo and go from there all they can do at this point..

  27. If that's how it plays out then the game against Sweden will be our do or die game as we need to beat them no matter what if we want to give ourselves a chance going into October and November. Its going to be extremely difficult.

  28. That shows that Christos loves to play for the Ethniki fanella! I hope he can recover in time and maybe see some game time in the qualifiers.

  29. Awful luck for us heading into 2 must win games. Not to mention Pelkas was ruled out prior to the squad being announced, between him Fortounis and Tzolis that's our 3 best attacking players IMO. Gonna be a big ask to win both games with those outs, we struggle to score with a full team. Mantalos and Bakasetas (no matter how much people hate it) are going to play a big part in us getting 6 points from these games. We also need Pavlidis/Fountas to be clinical when they get chances.

  30. I have to admit as much as I have critcized him he had an all around amazing game vs Sweden. I hope he can bring the same performance for the remaining World Cup qualifiers.

  34. Greek football is in a sad state. The league hasn’t started, no clubs in the Champions League. Greece is ranked 20th in European Club coefficient. Greece can’t beat Georgia and Kosovo. Now this. I thought Zagorakis was going to replace JVS after Sweden, now he’s quit.

  35. I really hope we see a different system with Sweden, some changes are needed. Surely JVS can't start with the same 3 5 2 formation which was a disaster with Kosovo. Players playing scared of making a mistake, and consequently not winning balls that normally they would win, and not making good decisions when they have the ball. Play breaks down too often and too easily. Having just 41% of possession with Kosovo was embarrassing. I don't know the answer, but if I see the same formation, I will not expect to see an improvement.

  36. Truly unacceptable. Being content with a 1-0 against a team like that means the coach deserves to be terminated. Seems like JVS has no faith in the players he’s chosen.

  38. Overall - We had more possession, more chances. Missed two golden chances in the second half, one should have gone in for sure. We did get caught out a few times on counters. The thing we were missing was someone in the middle to organize our attack. Our right side also didn't attack as much. Mavropanos had a terrible game.

  40. Good draw for OLY. Eintracht Frankfurt will be tough but it could have been worse especially drawing Leiceister from Pot 2 and say Real Soceidad or Marseille from Pot 3.
