  2. Exact 40 days to go. This one-legged match is a must win game. Winner faces an away game either in Georgia or Luxemburg for a spot in Group F of Euro 2024. Who is on fire? Who not? Perfect lineup to do the trick?

  3. Our biggest game in almost 7 years. Still over a month out but some things to keep an eye on in terms of player availability/form. -Tsimikas returned to the Liverpool bench and was subbed on to a play the last few moments on the weekend. He is fit again which is good news. -Chatzidiakos, since Christmas has only played 45 minutes for Cagliari in Serie A. He last had a full 90 on the 2nd of Jan, in a 4-1 cup defeat to AC Milan. As one of the prefered CB's it is a concern. He was hurt in training over the weekend, not sure on prognosis at this stage but assuming its minor Poyet will have to a decision to make if we get to this game and he's still riding the bench. -Vlachodimos: Nottingham Forest brought in another keeper, so he's effectively been relegated to 3rd choice. New keeper (Belgian Metz Sels) hasn't been setting the world on fire, which hopefully means Vlacho will get another shot at some stage. He hasn't played a Premier League game since early December and last played all-together in the FA Cup almost a month ago. Again Poyet will have another decision to make if he continues to not play come March. -Baldock has been injured the last month or so, I believe he is expected to be fit for this game. If fit he is a starter for Sheffield United, so if his body is right he will come with some game time under his belt. -Kourbelis was loaned to another Turkish club (Karagumruk) in January, and was injured after one game. He returned over the weekend and played some mins of the bench. Hopefully he continues to play over the next 5 weeks and is in some good form come the 21st of March.

  5. Two goals for Fortuna Düsseldorf yesterday did not suffice for the win. 11 goals so far. Joined second on the topscorer list of 2. Bundesliga.

  6. I was thinking the same thing. England will most likely get a cream puff WCUP qualifying draw and get first so then if Greece finish second in Nations League it might give us a playoff spot if we need it. As for the group I am confident Greece will get 2nd place and push England for top spot. We will get a result vs England as we got a 2-2 draw against a much better France.

  8. You can expect England to qualify directly to the world cup which would leave the 2nd place team in our division the team to go to the playoffs if I'm not mistaken.

  9. Easily the 2 most important matches in many years for the NT. Just getting to the Euros will help boost ranking for World Cup draw which will be more difficult to make. The WC in North America 2026 would be huge to take part hopefully they double qualify and bring the NT back to it's heyday!

  10. This is little bit complicated. Here are the UEFA rules for adding players past the play-off knockout stage: The way I understand it, we only made 1 change and that was Jonny replacing Rafa Soares in the A list. The reason we ended up with only 23 on the main list is because we loaned/sold Lyratzis and Vrakas that were part of the home grown players on the previous list. In order to comply with UEFA rules those two will need to be replaced by home grown players so we can meet the minimum of 8 home grown players. The two new home based players will no doubt be included in the B list of players. Sastre was never in the original list, so with the only available change Lucescu chose Jonny over Sastre. Looking at it I think it make sense. Jonny is new to the club and might not be completely ready for the upcoming derbies. By the time the first European games come in March, he will be more familiar with the team. In the meantime Sastre will be our main RB for the Superleague games.

  13. Awful result. Opportunity to go clear on top and knock Olympiakos out of the running goes begging. Instead we are now neck deep in a 4 horse race. Clearly a concerning trend with regards to 3 home derbies in a week for 0 wins. Now the midweek 2nd leg of the cup tie becomes so important, mentally for the team to be winless in 4 derbies in the space of 10 days could be fatal. The team needs to stick together and bounce back strong, block out all the outside noise (and there will be plenty, I've already read knee-jerk reactions about our season being over) and get to work. Hit the game at Leoforo hard, and absolutely win our next 3 league games. Make no mistake we are still in the race, but we have shot ourselves in the foot over the last week. If we win our last 3 league games before the playoffs, this bump will be in the rear view mirror. If we don't then it will feel like the end of the world (footballing wise).

  14. What a disaster. Left the game at 1:2 and whe I checked later it was 1:4. WTF happened? Seems like we continue from last season having problems on big derbies. Who cares if we can put 6 past Kifisia when we can't even muster a win in derbies at Toumba. Something needs to drastically change.

  19. I believe every club can request one league game to be pushed back due to European Competition. We did it a couple of years ago in our Conference League quarter final run. For Olympiakos, a run in Europe is all they have left. Qualifying for the round of 16 is massive for them and keeps their season alive so it makes sense they do not want a game in between, especially a derby. For us, I guess we are willing to accept because of the 2nd leg against PAO midweek. I wonder if Lucescu and the club new about this pre kick-off though, and if it would have affected his choices for the starting 11.

  22. Take a point considering for large portions of the game AEK was the better team. As Dutch says, we do not match-up well at all with them and they seem to have our number. Lucescu has one win in 7 games against Almeyda. Lucescu will have to navigate the 2 playoff games against them and find a way to at least get one win from those games. Not being able to start Konstantelias hurt us, he would've been able to break through their press and create more. Either way the subs did help, and we improved throughout the 2nd half. We stay top for now but we have a big week coming up. Bring it on.

  30. Did some research as I saw we had already scored 98 goals this season. Minimum in top 5 of best attacking power ever. Our top 3 seasons so far: 1. 2000/01 126 goals (including 17 cupmatches as they started with a group of 6 home and away against the likes of Ambelokipi and Nafpaktiakos Asteras); 2. 2013/14 109 goals; 3. 2018/19 104 (double). Shocking: 1985/86 only 36 goals !!!! This was the year after our second championship! For the record: 19 matches remaining (5 SL + 10 playoffs SL + 2 cup + 2 ECL) for sure. Might be +1 in the cup and +5 in ECL. 29 goals needed to break the record. Pame PAOK.

  31. Solid win today. You may recall the Estonian kid was signed recently, Sapovalov. He scored the second goal in this 0-3 win. https://www.paokfc.gr/en/news/20240116-paiktis-tou-paok-b-o-aleksandr-sapovalov/

  33. The paper team has a fairly easy schedule until the end of regular season. Their only difficult game is against us at Toumba. We must win that game at all cost. Atromitos showed me nothing in today's game. If they play like that against us, it's going to be another 4 goal game for our team.

  35. Add to our average record, they have been greatly improved since changing managers and are making a run for the top six (loss to Asteras last weekend hurt them). They've taken points off Olympiakos and PAO, as well as beating the latter in the cup last week. It will be tough, as always in a game like this an early goal is super important. You imagine Atromitos will park the bus, so with that in mind this is a game where Konstantelias needs to start over Murg. Get all our attacking power on the pitch from kick-off to break them down.

  36. Wow we've only won once there since the 18-19 season. This is a must win game to keep our lead. Either Oly or PAO will drop points (hopefully they tie)

  41. First round, first place again. 2024 a new coach and several new faces. The top 4 teams will duke it out in the playoffs it seems. But PAO now has a much better roster than last year. I think up to Jan before the new additions, PAO over-achieved given its budget and players.

  43. We gave up on Maximovic at the end of the summer when his team demanded 4 mil just to let him go. I think a decision was made to see how Meite/Antonio would perform and revisit this again in the future. It appears that during this transfer period a bidding war has started and PAOK did not take part in it. His agent all of a sudden also demanded a 1.7 mil signing bonus, which probably turned PAOK completely off. At the end I think we will sign either Meite or Antonio and also look for another midfielder since at the end of this period some of the contracts are ending (Schwab). In other rumors I heard that Murg is asking for a wage increase. After sitting on the bench for the past two seasons, I am not sure I would be extending his contract.

  44. Europa League group stage comes to an end, with Trabzonspor winning their final group game against Ferencvaros 1-0 via a very nice Bakasetas goal. That was his third goal in the competition to go along with his 4 assists. He's having another very good year, and has been able to replicate that form in Europe. Unfortunately for him and his team, they weren't able to qualify for the knockout stage in the Europa league, finishing 3rd with 9 points (1 point behind both Monaco and Ferencvaros in the top 2 spots). They will keep playing in Europe in the new year though, in the Conference league.

  45. That was great to see. I’ve been very critical of him I just hope he can somehow turn up for Greece and actually play well and be the reason why we win a game for once.
