  1. Great and unexpected win! Still guarantees nothing but it is a good start. Hopefully they will continue with the next game in Sweden.
  2. This is a tough group. Athletico Madrid plays very tight and has tough defense.Juventus has some great quality players that can score. I don't know much about Malmo. Originally I thought we can fight for 2nd with Juve but after all the changes these last few weeks: Manolas, Samaris, Holembas and now Avraam Papadopoulos!... I'm not quite sure anymore... I didn't like that Manolas left but I understand the situation. Avraam, one of our captains is also a huge loss. I really liked Holembas as well. Samaris may be a huge loss really in a couple of years if he plays solid at Benfica. Because our defence is really depleted... Ok we have Abidal, Siovas, Botia and Avlonitis... Which is much weaker (IMHO) than previous seasons. I believe as of now, 3rd place would be the best they can do.
  3. I know it's only a friendly tournament but wow...Olympiakos played very well. They just need some help up in front (offence). It should be an interesting year, especially in the Champion's League.
  4. You know, I still haven't been contacted by them... Quite ridiculous. Oh well, they may have lost a few potential customers! :tdown:
  5. Thank you for the info. I did contact them yesterday and I have yet to hear from them... :(
  6. Greetings everyone! I'm inquiring about the Ellastv and was wondering if I were to purchase the etv-503 box could I get just the Sports pack? If so, how much would it cost? I live in Toronto. Thanks
  7. Abdoun signed with Nottingham Forest (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/23447613) but Tzibour has still not signed with another team and he still has a contract until the summer of 2016. Right now he isn't even training!
  8. Hi everyone, I've been quietly following the team and its signing of players etc. One thing that doesn't make much sense to me, is that Tzibour apparently is in Greece and he is dining, eating and swimming... I know that he was told to try and find another team to play, but all he has done was knock down opportunities from some teams such as Nottingham etc. Then I read that he called Marinakis a "god"... He still has 3 years on his contract and it doesn't seem like he is interested in playing anywhere else. Mitchel doesn't want him and it seems he is enjoying the finer things in life. Is it possible that he may actually stay with the team?
  9. The only negative thing about 18 teams is that for National team players, they would get really tired. Playing the domestic league, Cup, Champion League/Europa and of course for the Ethniki would get the players a bit more tired and with a better chance of injury. England plays way too many games in their season. I mean they play even during holidays. This is why I believe they never can perform well for their national team. Players are not robots they need to rest too. As a fan, 34 games would be better I suppose. But if they do this, will they still have the playoffs for teams in position 2 thru 5? Then they will play another 6 games on top of that all the way thru June, so that is 40 games! I don't like that and I think its quite ridiculous! Just have a baraz 2 knock out games, for example, #2 plays #5 and winner meets #3 vs. #4 winner and thats it.
  10. I think this was more reasonable and of course AEK should have no suspension at all. Good verdict.
  11. I agree with pao123 that they should of suspended him for the rest of the season with a big prostimo but not for life! Yes what he did was ridiculous to do, to say the least, banning him for life is way too excessive... I believe and hope that they (EPO) will retract the ban when things quiet down and the season is over and at least reduce it to a year or two. But regardless, Katidis really "hurt" his career for that one stupid moment of "celebration."
  12. Just like the regular metegrafes, the same thing now for the coach... we will hear a lot of names on a daily basis... Emeri, Mitchell, Mantharo, Martinez, Pinto etc. until finally it's actually announced! ;)
  13. Here is the link (in Greek) to a very informative financial description for the players they bought, released and sold... http://www.katimagiko.gr/article/26609/o-t...kos-isologismos Also, here is a comment from the same page with some more interesting info that wasn't included: 1.000.000
  14. Just to follow up... Nemeth, Galitsios, Soiledis and Leonardo have all been let go and they are now free agents. They obvioulsy got rid of Hurtado and acquired Pablo Orbaiz on loan for a year with an option to purchase. Lastly it looks like Riera will most likely go to Galatasaray for anywhere from $3 to 4.5 Million Euros and he will get a 4 year deal making 3.1-3.5 Million Euros a season. If/when he goes, the team will try and sign a Free Agent, however he will not be eligible to play in the Champion's League until January (I believe)... Personally I don't think it's a good idea to get rid of a player, this late just before the Champion's League starts. Also, I think they gave up on Nemeth too quickly... I'v seen Soiledis play some matches and he had looked pretty impressive but I'm assuming he is not a steady player... Don't know about that one... Thoughts?
  15. Well today, they signed Makoun for one year and the option of buying his rights next year. I believe, they also signed Abdoun as well. -Mitroglou is playing with Atromitos for a year. -Vasiloyiannis is going to Cyprus for a year to Apollon Lemesou. -Leandro & Wanderson (2 yound Brazilian players) will be on loan to Doxa Dramas. -Soubinio is going to OFI for a year. -Niklitsiotis is going to some team (Helmont Sport-not sure what division) in Holland for a year, but if the team like him they can buy his rights next year. Source is from here: http://www.gavros.gr/article/9485/sthn-kyp...-basilogiannhs/ *What remains to be seen is what will happen with Hurtado and if he leaves they will get Obraight (sorry not sure of spelling). Galitsios may be let go as well. Rommendahl is another one. Not sure about Soiledis, Katsikoyiannis... and I don't know if I left anyone else out. Marinakis also claimed that there will be another "BAM" signing, which I assume will be a "big name" striker... We will see.
  16. Hi everyone, We have been hearing about metagrafes for the longest time... and when it comes with the Newspapers & Olympiakos, it's almost like a soap opera! Anyway, Marinakis is going to get 3 more players. 2 Midfield players and a striker. I've been hearing a lot about Makoun & Estrada amongst many others before (Gargano & Mountari, to name but a few.) I haven't really seen either of these players but which one would suit well for us? Apparently we are also getting Tziolis and Abdoun: http://www.katimagiko.gr/article/25597/kok...-tzioles-abdoun I'm not excited about Tziolis but he is a Greek player and we don't have too many playing right now. Abdoun is a decent backup player, but couldn't they get someone else better? Thoughts?
  17. Wow, isn't Tsakiris a little greedy? A million?I mean $800,000 Euro and 2 loan players isn't shabby at all.
  18. I'm sure Marinakis may have inquired but that's it.He wants to go to Brazil and play with Gremio (I believe) and with this way (he believes) he will be able to play for the National team again.
  19. I think he has done an amazing job! I agree with you Crazy, for 2 months since he has taken over he has rolled up his sleeves and made changes to where he thinks it was needed. -From the people around him (i.e. the board, president (maintaning Kokkalis), vice presidents etc.) also hired Kovacevic with his knowledge and connections with different teams/countries etc. -Obviously giving Linen the axe and the lightning change of bringing back Valverde. -Got rid of (at least 1 year) the like of Matt & Diogo and replacing them with Pantelic, Nemeth & Fouster (forward?) In a few words, he is keen on taking control of his team and making it a winner at any (almost) cost. He is... words with action. At least, that what he has shown so far. :tup: Marinakis so far has really proven that he is not just a "president".He is a big Olympiakos fan and he shows that he has a vision and a plan also and he does not have the style of throw money for foreigners and forget about the greek youngsters. I know not many will agree with me but Marinakis for a 2 month old president he has done extremelly well in all the fronts that he needed to deal with. Vaggelli proxora.
  20. I don't know much about Sergio Garcia... Anyways, is he a good player?Also, has Hurtado ever played for his national team?
  21. This is Crazy! (Sorry to use your name Crazy! lol) :LOL: :bangin: http://www.gavros.gr/Default.aspx?id=34825...5&nt=108〈=1
  22. Yes that's true.I guess what I was trying to say was, it would be nice to have Diogo and Mitroglou playing together on the field at the same time. Thus the 4-4-2.
  23. Does anyone know much about these players that have been mentioned lately? Euro204 already mentioned Guttierez, Denis, Pantellic and of course the more known Mancini. What about Obraniak, Gereiro, Milinkovic (21 year old Serb)? Are they fast players etc? It would also be nice if they had another quick forward, like Lua Lua, Castillo type player. I think the team needs a bit more speed at left midfield (Galletti at left type player) and a fast forward. Soiledis? Good young, quick player... Needs playing time and maturity. With Derbyshire injured, I can see why the coach only plays with one forward. I would like to see a 4-4-2 for some more offense at some point.
  24. They have been talking about Gonzalez (Betis and former Liverpool player) for a while now... True or not, I don't know... But what I don't understand is, if the plirofories are true, why would they send someone else (outside the team) to contact the spanish club for the player? This Mendez guy? Isn't this Xrisikopoulos's job or someone else from the Team?
  25. Wow, it's been interesting again for this year's transfers (metagrafes). Great addition of Mellburgh - replacing Atzas. Zairi looks like a nice addition and possibly Pardo (yet to be seen). Truth is we lost a lot of experienced players: Tzole, Patsa, Leto and now possibly Belluschi. I'm not exited of him leaving.. But I didn't know that the team was in a huge debt (something like) $63 Million Euros! Of which $27 Million are from loans. Anyway, it would be nice to pick up Kalstrom, Gonzales and a good striker. What remains to be seen is Ledesma... does he stay or go? if he goes, then we need another replacement. Especially since Stoltidis doesn't seem too healthy. Hopefully, the proper steps will be taken, because this year's Super League will be a lot stronger (after Pao's, Paok's, & Aris's signings). We should continue winning Championships! :tup: Finally, hopefully the draw will be kind and we are able to reach the Champion League group stage. I wish all the Greek teams to do well and qualify.
