  1. Zeca our best player tonight. Really lucky to get the point though in a game where we did not create anything. Take this as a gift for the country's anniversary.

  2. Bro let me tell you something you’re the type of guy that will cheer for the team when they’re playing well and then come out here and start telling everybody “I told you so” you’re like the little weasel that likes to start arguments and then turtles when it comes down to it.. I’ve dealt with guys like you on numerous occasions..

  3. Watch the video of Siovas opening up about what happened with him and JVS as well as the current state of the NT and if the right players are being called up.. I agree with everything he said.. https://m.sport24.gr/longreads/o-dimitris-siovas-apokleistika-sto-sport-24-itan-schediasmeno-na-me-fane.9206688.amp.html?__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR09VUhBCpssIrO1RIE7yoQVqjoqm53U8ozGmOf5u6_eOXPrl7afr-PZGVM

  4. Torosidis played at left back for the Ethniki since he debuted in 2007, long before he ever moved to Roma. He was 22 so I'm not sure your experience argument holds up. Toro was only moved to his natural right back once Rehhagel left and Santos took over post 2010 World Cup. We don't know if Tsimikas would fail or not at right back, there are challenges with playing on your opposite side as you have correctly pointed out. If JVS is going to insist on Mavrias as the no.2 right back and not consider other options, 10/10 times I would rather see Tsimikas playing on his weak side.

  5. It was a bad game, felt like a loss. After a string of promising football, we played bad. By promising, I mean creating shots on goal, keeping possession. This was the first time I saw a JVS coached team not press, not hustle. That's what I think was disappointing. Also the insistence of starting Bakasetas is starting to annoy all of us as we can see he is the answer. The people gloating that we lost, sorry, you are in the wrong forums. The cursing on top of it, honestly, what kind of reaction did you expect? Someone earlier asked about Vrousai, he's injured or he would have been

  7. Starting lineup was just announced !!! Courtesy of sportime Vlachodimos bakakis k paps tzavellas giannoulis zeca bouchalakis fortunis bakasetas tzolis pavlidis Why bakasetas it’s an automatic starter is just super Annoying I know he scored against Spain but he offers nothing going forward he is slow with the ball and has no creativity I would have put fortounis there instead which is his natural position and masouras on the right with tsimikas replacing bakakis. Our two best backs should be playing at all times regardless if one is out of position it’s

  8. I wasn’t happy about the starting line up at all, but I will say most of the guys hustled there asses off and once the changes were made we played better, the guys put in a fantastic defensive effort, yes of course we were only going to get one or two chances against Spain that was obvious, but for those saying it was a fluke Penalty maybe it was but the boys put themselves in the right position to get that call. Some of you clowns have to really man up and just give the team credit when they pull off a stunning result rather than looking at who we play next and automatically assuming we’re go

  10. That was a very good video. Siovas said that some players are not deserving to be in the team. He also says we need players that are playing at a high level. I also agree with everything he said.

  11. Thanks for this J1078. Its very telling what Siovas says about JVS and the coaching staff getting rid of him for no real reason just saying Manolas and Sokratis could have helped the NT and players like himself, Svarnas, Hatzidiakos, Staf, etc. Also he touched on how you cant have our best CBs out of the NT as we are first a defensive oriented team going back many years. It looks like it will come down to Septembers match with Kosovo for JVS its an absolute must win to save his job and then he needs to get a result vs Sweden or else he has to go. I heard on one of the podcasts that h

  13. After the Georgia match, I personally would change that lineup I had and apparently JVS is getting a technical director and the name escapes me atm. Kyriakos Pap and Tzavellas are too slow and do not press higher up, I would have Siovas back in. Bouchalakis is abit too limited as the no.8 as well. Siopis shows a big motor and could work in that role. Bakasetas seems like a square peg trying to get into a round hole in that team. Pavlidis has been playing mainly on the wing and GG is in great form as Striker for his club. Boyz...4 2 3 1

  15. I think this squad would've pulled out the win. No way Tsimikas does any worse than Mavrias against their goal-scorer, regardless of natural position.

  16. Some people stressed lets enjoy the point against Spain as bad as the team looked offensively. Maybe they didn't stress it in the nicest way but we struggled to beat some weaker teams so guys were happy getting a point against Spain. So it was little annoying the minute the Spain game was over to hear we are going to drop points to Georgia. Also you came on here yesterday the minute the whistle blew after the game and told guys "TO SHUT THEIR FCKING MOUTH AND GO TO HELL" That's what triggered some guys including myself to react. Frustrations are high all around I get that at the end of the day

  17. After two games the major problem is that Greece are not threating in attack and creating chances as we did when JVS came into the fold in 2019. There were games were we saw 15 +attempts at goal vs Bosnia, Finland and Armenia I recall. Our problem then was mainly finishing now we have had 2 goals one from a penalty and the other an OG. Today we were slow moving the ball and so many times Bakestas would play the ball backwards and destroy our attack when we could press forward. That was just incredibly frustrating to watch. Georgia created better chances from open play and Vlachodimos had

  18. I'm not implying anything. What I am saying is that when our country, our team, loses and loses a match we all expected to win, peoples moods will be adversely affected. The last thing anyone wants to see right at the last whistle is trash talking in a "i told you so" tone. Its pathetic. I have no problem stating how poorly and flat Greece played today. We are all gutted. I'll never come in though and kick everyone while they're down....

  19. This was obviously not a great performance for us. Truth be told, Georgia has a good team. Spain barely beat them and they needed an extra time goal. It's one game, everyone needs to relax. Trolling after a loss, for a team we all love, in a forum that supports the team, is never cool. We are fans of the ethniki and wish it the best. The lineup needs some tweaks, we all know that. Bakasetas/Bakakis have no place in the 11. Calling Giannoulis a championship RB is ridiculous. He could have gone to better teams but chose a team that will be promoted to the Premier league and get gam

  28. The class difference between the players of Spain and Greece is huge. That much should be obvious. Even if we wanted to play an attacking game with more possession the current players are simply not capable of doing it. I would be surprised if they could string 3 or 4 passes together before they succumbed to pressure and turned the ball over. I don't think any manager could have played this game any other way really. Sure you could change the formation and the starting 11 but ultimately you know, no matter what, Spain are going to have lots more chances than Greece and will possess minimu

  29. What did you think our gameplan was gonna be? Really, take a minute and think. Did you think we could attack Spain consistently? Do you really think we have world class players who can do that? JVS had a gameplan to absorb pressure and hit them on the counter. We did that in the first half. We had two counter chances that didn’t work but besides their goal and crossbar they didn’t do anything except keep possession. You really don’t think we should be happy about this result? Against one of the best teams in the world , just months after we s%$#! the bed in national league. Pl

  30. This team just pulled one of their best results in the last five years and you’re still speaking s%$#! You know we don’t have the quality whoever we put in there to hang with Spain. I was pissed off with the starting lineup as well but you can’t even give the f***ing guys credit for hustling nonstop all game and they didn’t fold after they let the first goal in.. Spain only had about 2 or 3 shots on net..

  32. Really everyone did well! Not only that but we were putting our bodies on the line. Non stop running. Also it wasn’t like they dominated us in front of goal. They had the goal, the shot that hit the crossbar, and like one weak header. Possession means nothing if you don’t score

  36. JVS needs to change something. We can't just sit back like this, we need to try to score. I would take Limnios/Bakasetas/Bakakis/Mantalos out, put in Tziolis/Fortounis/Androutsis/Giakoumakis. Only positive is that the score should only be 1-0. They havn't had many opportunities either..

  40. I agree with everything you said. the one thing i did like about JVS at the beginning is he gave more young guys a chance when he first came in but that seemed to stop and he stuck with a guys that have no business playing. I read an article about Ninis the other day saying he may get another chance to play for the NT. I think i would also bring back Fetfa if not as a starter i think he could be used as a bench option to add a spark to the team. Bakasetas is to JVS what Tziolis was to Skibbe Those guys have no business starting. At most Bakasetas should be coming in off the bench when the tea

  41. Be grateful that we had a fantastic 10 years of tournaments (2004-2014). Some people don't even see their country win a trophy in their lifetime. The fact that we have not been able to build on the 2004 success is our own fault. That is what happens when you let toxic clubs like Olympiakos (I don't want to start an argument, but it is the truth) take over and have their players get call-ups just to increase their value. Of course it isn't just that - the whole mentality is wrong in Greece. We live in the past and celebrate 1-0 wins from 15 years ago on an annual basis. We read about PAO's

  43. That’s why they play the games. You’re right. No one is an easy out. In football upsets happen. Ball is round it can go anywhere. Greece tied Spain yesterday. The same Spain that destroyed Germany. Anything can happen on any given day.

  44. A few things I got from today’s fantastic result. 1. That’s why JVS is a coach and we’re in here posting. He knows a lot more about the sport than all of us put together, and knows a lot about his players tactics than we do. 2. My dog could’ve went in goal for both teams and the game would still be 1 1. 3. Siopis has to be about 5 ft 1 4 tzavellas has the worst haircut I’ve seen. and last but not least. We tied!!! End of story.

  45. Exciting to be only a few days out from the start of another qualifying campaign! I think Tzolis must start, he proved for PAOK in Europe how damaging he can be on the counter. Give him space at your peril, he's got pace to burn, has a lethal right boot and gets into dangerous scoring positions. He will provide a headache for the Spanish going the other way, whether or not JVS trusts him to start a game like this is another issue. Also interested to see what JVS does at center back, early reports are saying Tzavellas will start and the other spot is between Kyriakos/Mavropano
