  1. He certainly was. For those that did not get a chance to see the game and the great display by Athanasiadis, here are some highlights worth watching:
  2. King Otto (KING OTTO | OFFICIAL WEBSITE (kingottomovie.com)) 16 Σεπτεμβρίου 2021 στα Village Cinemas Το καλοκαίρι του 2004, η Ελλάδα μάγεψε την Ευρώπη με την πιο αναπάντεχη νίκητης στην ιστορία του ποδοσφαίρου. Οι θεατές ανά τον κόσμο παρακολούθησαν με δυσπιστία και δέος τα αουτσάιντερ του θεσμού, μία ομάδα, η οποία χωρίς να έχει καμία απολύτως νίκη σε σημαντική διοργάνωση, κατατρόπωσε τους γίγαντες του παγκόσμιου ποδοσφαίρου και ανακηρύχθηκε πρωταθλήτρια Ευρώπης. Ο αρχιτέκτονας πίσω από αυτό τον απροσδόκητο θρίαμβοήταν ο θρυλικός Γερμανός προπονητής, ο ‘Βασιλιάς’Όττο Ρεχάγκελ. Έχοντας σημειώσει τεράστιες επιτυχίες για την χώρα του, πήρε την παράτολμη απόφαση να εγκαταλείψει την αυτοκρατορία του, για να αναλάβει την αδύναμη Ελληνική ομάδα ποδοσφαίρου. Αυτή είναι ιστορία για το πως δύο εκ διαμέτρου αντίθετες κουλτούρες ενώθηκαν, μίλησαν την ίδια γλώσσα και έγραψαν μαζί ένα νέο κεφάλαιο στην Ελληνική μυθολογία.
  3. I switched games. Watching Belgium-Czech Rep. No reason to waste one's life watching the 'sorry show'..
  4. Most memorable for this gift to the world. R.I.P Mikis.
  5. Another one of the good guys has left us. Maybe St. Peter has a rock band going and needed a drummer... So long Charlie.
  6. Also, two factor authentication using handlers for Google Authenticator and Security Questions is now available to select user groups. (premium members, moderators) Two Factor Authentication allows members of the community to secure their accounts using an additional layer of security in addition to their normal username and password. Users will not be presented with any two factor options unless at least one of these handlers is enabled. Those with access will find two-factor authentication under their account settings - Security & Privacy:
  7. For security purposes the way a user logs in has changed. A user is required to log in with their email address - not their user name as it was until now. Allowing users to log in with a display name can represent a security weakness for our community because display names are public information and malicious users may attempt to login to multiple accounts with common passwords until they find an account for which the passwords work.
  8. ‘The greatest striker’: Gerd Müller, legendary German forward, dies aged 75. (The Guardian) The forward scored 68 goals in 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winning goal in the 1974 World Cup final against Holland. Thank you Gerd for all you did for the sport May his soul rest in peace.
  9. Nice and unexpected (based on their showing) win for PAOK.
  10. Yep! No skill, no imagination. Just plain old sterile. Oh well. It is what it is...
  11. A good gesture by the U.S. Army Europe and Africa Band & Chorus. To commemorate 200 Years Greek Independence Day, members of the Soldiers’ Chorus perform the Greek folk song “Dance of Zalongo.”
  12. For argument's sake, if they were successful in ''having a go at him'', would and should they stop there? If so why? Shouldn't their 'courtesy' extend to all those that meet their 'courtesy requirements', which is 90% of those that oppose them ideologically? Also, I am assuming that you agree with 17 November ideologically since you endorse a hypothetical event. But endorsing the actions of 'someone else' is puzzling, especially since you set forth no conditions as long as they achieve the desired outcome. In this case: as long as somebody has a go at Dick Cheney, you wouldn't and couldn't care at all what they stand and why they did it. Does that sound about right? Or maybe I just totally misunderstood your statement. (It happens sometimes) Yes, people need to understand this distinction. Murder is a murder is a murder no matter how you coat it.
  13. I don't know why anybody would celebrate with what they saw today. Yes, Greece did get a tie, but they are a pitiful team. Nothing to like, nothing to root for. Greece needs a LOT of work just to start resembling a competent team. Εθνική Κωλοπετινίτσας would be the right term to assess this performance.
  14. President Joe Biden faced tough questions during his first solo press conferences about the surge of migrants on the US-Mexico border.
  15. The filibuster has no place in a modern representative democracy. It's an archaic process in the US Senate and has been overly abused by both parties over the years. For those that don't know what 'filibuster' is (our members outside the US), here's a link: Wikipedia. Elections have consequences and the winning party has to govern according to the wish of the people that elected them. That's what having a majority is about. 50%+ 1 gives one the majority. The minority should have a voice and present it for discussion and consideration. Bipartisanship is achieved by two parties cooperating - the winning party sets the tone of discussion in the particular branch of government. The minority party brings up its arguments and own proposals for discussion and to make the public aware of where it stands. One party refusing to participate in governing - with the sole goal of accusing the other party of failing in legislating - is not what legislating and bipartisanship is about. Although it it what it has become. Which makes it the appropriate to change, the appropriate time to move forward. The Democratic party will have to live with the consequences of doing away with the filibuster if and when the Republican party gains majority in the Senate.
  16. Stay tuned. More to follow. I'm switching to watch the Muppet Show. I find it a tad bit more exciting than Greece's suicide squad.
  17. 15' into the game, ball possession: Spain 98%, Greece 2%. Greece hasn't crossed midfield with the ball in their feet.
  18. The way I saw it, Olympiacos played a great game and was inching towards an upset. The referee took away all the oomph out of Olympiacos' sails with that ridiculous red card that he gave Ousseynou Ba (82'). That just crippled them. In my opinion, Olympiacos played good and can exit the tournament with their head held high.
  19. All good points! And by no means do I consider myself being right. Just questioning things (like you are) and trying to make sense of what is happening around me. Back to the subject. Personally I would not put Mandela or Kolokotronis in the same boat as Koufodinas. I would not hold 17 November on the same level of moral equivalency as the Greek Revolution for Independence. But it definitely is worth discussing why not. Of course this is not going to happen in this single post, but a conversation that we can delve deeper into with time. I will outline my thoughts as time permits.
  20. Bummer! Just when I was hoping that Olympiacos was able (and going) to pull it off! In my opinion, the first goal was on Sa, the third on Olympiacos' defense - never closed in on Elneny.
  21. And that description was accurate, was it not? Those people were innocent in the eyes of Justice and under the laws of the country. Just because some people might consider them guilty of wrongdoing because they work for a different government, may be part of a different political system or believe in a different God, does not make it so. In modern society, we cannot have unqualified individuals acting as judge and executioner. Then we would all have a very short life span. 17 November did not refrain from having collateral casualties because of any sort of belief, standard or political philosophy. They did so because they needed public support and Greece's left wing fringe behind them. None of that would be possible if they had innocent bystanders paying the price for them being sloppy. And if the public was not behind them or just sympathize with them, they would not have lasted that long without being arrested and dismantled.
  22. Just noticed that on a page that @Dutch Eagle is working on, you mention: "He has been capped four times for the Ethniki sofar, scoring one goal in his second game, a friendly against Cyprus. " I think that since the article does not have any date references this information is a little confusing. The terms "sofar" doesn't help the reader understand the time referenced, since he doesn't know when that page was created or edited. I changed "Capped four times ...so far" to read: "As of February 2021, he has been capped four times for the Ethniki," If possible, I think we should reference time in a way that would allow for the article to appear accurate even after a few months or years. Otherwise, we'll have to remember to keep changing those references as information changes. That's OK for 1-5 articles, but when you have a bunch of 'em, it's a little difficult to keep up to date. If you can think of a better way to reference this type of information, please, by all means go ahead.
