  1. Contra.gr says he's flying to Italy to sign for AC Milan....
  2. (From FIFA.com) Greece drops one spot to 13th. Teams in bold are not in WC. Strange that Egypt goes up one spot while Greece drops one spot to unlucky number 13. 1 Brazil 2 Spain 3 Portugal 4 Netherlands 5 Italy 6 Germany 7 Argentina 8 England 9 France 10 Croatia 11 Russia 12 Egypt 13 Greece 14 USA 15 Serbia 16 Uruguay 17 Mexico 18 Chile 19 Cameroon 20 Australia
  3. Greece back in Top Ten Greece back in top ten(FIFA.com) The latest edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking reveals two changes of position in the top ten, as well as the return of a team that were European champions not so long ago. Spain continue to lead the way ahead of Brazil and the Netherlands at the top, but further back Germany (5th, up 1) and Portugal (6th, down 1) swap places, as do England (8th, up 1) and Argentina (9th, down 1). Greece (10th, up 2) also return to the top ten for the first time since June 2008. Their fortunes are in sharp contrast to those of Egypt, last month’s major movers. The CAF Africa Cup of Nations winners fall seven places and are now in 17th place. The Pharaohs are still the highest-placed African team, however, just ahead of Cameroon (20th), Nigeria (21st) and Côte d’Ivoire (22nd). The majority of changes in this month’s ranking are due to the devaluation of results from last year. Korea DPR (102nd, down 17) have fallen significantly, for example, due to the devaluation of their victory over Saudi Arabia in a 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifying match last year. Teams inside the top 50 that have benefited from the devaluation of past results include Serbia (13th, up 6), Slovenia (27th, up 6) and Slovakia (31st, up 5). Two teams – Montenegro (71st, up 1) and the Comoros Islands (175th, up 1) – are currently in their highest-ever position on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking. Thirty-one matches, all friendlies, have been taken into account in this edition of the Ranking, taking the total number of international 'A' matches played so far in 2010 to 98. More movement can be expected in the next edition of the ranking as a considerable number of matches will be played on 3 March, a date reserved for friendly matches in the international match calendar. It is an opportunity for many teams, not just those who have qualified for South Africa 2010, to make progress in the ranking. 1 Spain 1642 0 15 2 Brazil 1594 0 26 3 Netherlands 1324 0 36 4 Italy 1226 0 17 5 Germany 1208 1 35 6 Portugal 1201 -1 25 7 France 1171 0 54 8 England 1109 1 33 9 Argentina 1087 -1 5 10 Greece 1074 2 44 11 Croatia 1050 0 -3 12 Russia 1042 1 16 13 Serbia 980 6 64 14 Chile 971 2 16 15 Mexico 968 2 21 15 Switzerland 968 3 44 17 Egypt 967 -7 -102 18 USA 954 -4 -9 19 Uruguay 936 2 27 20 Cameroon 888 0 -26

  6. Pliatsikas (Schalke) and Lambrou (Feyenoord) were called to the U21 team. Lambrou is a 17 year old GK, born in Athens, who was discovered by Feyenoord while playing for his 5X5 team in Chalkida
  7. These 2 Greek Economists, Vassiliki Avgerinou and Stefanos Giakoumatos, conducted research on attendance figures in the Greek League, which is only a part of their topic on "Price, Income & Unemployment Effects on Greek Professional Football" On Page 3 of this link, look at the attendance figures since 1979. They were at their peak in the mid-to-late 80's while taking a big dip at the beginning of 1990. Its lowest was in 2004 but sales have a little better since. http://www.holycross.edu/departments/econo...lAttendance.pdf
