  1. The ref yeah....Karnezis also really screwed up..That was just awful.
  2. First team ball and the space to develop a key role at Iraklis is worth more than the EPL reserves. At his age, hes old enough to be playing with Professionals. He should be doing so. The defenders in the Greek league are way tougher than what he'll come up against for Everton B, Greek sides and league is tough and the league is really not that easy as everybody likes to make it out to be. Well see. If he gets to train first team, and make an occasional sub its good. If he sits in the reserve for 3 years then goes and plays for some obscure Belgian or Second Divions team, a Superleague transfer would definitly be the better choice. I'd have liked to see him go to AEK, PAOK or Aris.
  3. He takes up space, not creates it. Hes been garbage for years, and couldnt even make the squad at ARLES,. Now hes moving to a large club in a large league with strikers he's not fit to even train with. Its a pretty amazing transfer and should come as a suprise to everyone.
  4. Cisse. He has the talent, attitude, and leadership. Face it, hes the best player in the Superleague and its no wonder Liverpool and other clubs are going to be trying to take him back, especially with PAO crumbling. Ninis.....good player, but his attitude on the pitch is starting to make me angry. This year I see him diving, complaining, hes getting injured all the time, and hes not delivering. I agree.....sell him off while hes valuable. This clubs about to go into the dark ages and well need the money, there are superleague players who can contribute as much as he does.
  5. nice! hopefully he can make it, but I dont have much faith in EPL youth development, they never seem to give the patience and just outsource there talent (especially strikers). Bundesliga would have been better.
  6. this season has been awful from the very beginning. I watch, every step forward finds 2 steps backward down the line. Katsouranis has got to go, hes awful. Karagkounis one of my favourite ever PAO players but we cant continue to give him a role, hes really done. Cisse cant do everything, no player can. Cisse already does way more than what we could expect from him. Also, his penalty taking has been absolutley phenomenal lately. Pretty much the season is done. With us going to Toumba, Faliro, no leadership, no signings....This is going to be a depressing season, and so will next year. If we can retain Cisse for next year I'll be happy, because when he leaves we really are finished. ..
  7. the german league has ownership rules where 51% of the clubs must be publically owned (private non profit), they also require youth programs and have a ton of standards for clubs to compete. Bundesliga is the best overall league in the world. At the rate its going, I fully expect it to surpass the EPL by 2020. Salary caps are a horrible, horrible idea. You prevent teams from being competitive. If the most PAO can pay for a player is "X", and the most say Everton can pay for a player is "X", then theres reduced incentive/reason for top players to come out to Europe. Salary caps are preventing the A League from being anything more than a pile of garbage it is, as your teams have no ability to gain competitive advantage, to attract players/retain talents, with competing European leagues which offer not only possiblity of money, but also competition. If Superleague alone had a salary caps for within Greece, the Greek league would drop far behind in talent because they'll never be able to bring in top talent, or retain it. The reason Greece is so unbalanced between 2 clubs is because 50% of the country lives in Athens, and theres 2 big teams, they dominate the fanbase and therefore the opportunity for growth. We don't need salary caps, we need to take private ownership OUT, and make sure smaller clubs are fully reinvesting in their teams.
  8. Clearly? It hit his hand, but he didn't punch it. Come on...It happens, the ref didnt see it and it didnt get called. Regardless PAO would have taken this. PAOK had an even worse penalty not given when they were down 1-0 too, just let it go.
  9. aek was way better second half. deserved win. strange though, it seems all the yellow-black teams in Europa had quite big wins tonight.......*Young Boys Bern, Mettalurg, AEK and Aris
  10. this was embarassing campaign, definitley among the worst if not the worst in our Clubs history. Not just 2 points with Kazan and FCK...... We have only scored one goal in 5 games...... Total garbage. Nioplias should have been fired after Copenhagen.
  11. well, we went from absolultey no club experience coach, to maybe too much club experienced one? Jacek Gmoch is back at the helm after 21 yeras.
  12. Nioplias is so unbeleivably stupid..... Luis Garcia on, for Lazaros??? Karagkounis stays on, despite not making runs, and complaining every 5 mins/ already had a yellow????? Lazaros is our BEST midfielder at the moment without question. Without him we wouldnt have 6 points in the last 2 games...no question. And we needed to score, we take him OFF!??!?! For LUIS GARCIA????! also putting Petropoulos on at half was pretty stupid, as the guy cannot contribute anything at all. The books need to close on him because really, his development is finished at PAO it seems. Govou was bad, but still did more and better to have out there than Petropoulos.... Watching this game, we are a team full of mostly old, some washed up players, plus Djibril, Lazaros who are great.....The old players need to go Gilberto does not need to be on the team another season Karagkounis should stay, but why can't we have a coach that will put him in the role he should have -------- BACK UP, SUBSTITUTE. He can still contribute in 30-45 minute increments and fill in. Past that hes not a 90 minute player in any respect Govou isnt much of a player anymore it seems. We really do miss Salpiggidis, we should replace Govou. Luis Garcia is really not a special player. Hes OK. Hes a backup, but seriously we could have found much better backups in Greece. I really hate when people talk about Liverpool. I dont care what team he played for, it doesnt matter because he SUCKS now. Spyropoulos is not a 11 quality player, he should be a backup at this club, not our starting option...
  13. Nioplias needs to get lost. This was utterly pathetic.... Karagkounis CANNOT play this game, and cannot play 80 minutes. Lazaros was a STAR against OSFP....And we let him play 10 mins? Govou on the bench? This was a MUST WIN GAME to stay in the Champions League, and Nioplias played it like a total pansy. He really is a horrible coach. If you think theres any point in waiting till the last 20 mins of a must win game to go for it you truly are an idiot ---- unless your playing a powerhouse team that can seriously punish you. Kazan was so beatable. They were not very special, they played conservative without Karadeniz in the lineup.....The crowd was MILD, the pitch was good......we had every reason in the world to try and put some men forward------ at LEAST put our BEST midfielders on. Gilberto, Karagkounis have had it. Lazaros and Govou on the bench..just a total joke. Such a strong team this year, and we are playing for last place in an easy group. We nearly hit -7 against OSFP...Were heading for 4th in the CL (sorry Barcelona is a loss and FCK away if we couldn't do Kazan, don't expect FCK who will be much colder, much tougher atmosphere, organized team on the brink of their own qualification to be any easier, they will likely beat us. Nioplias is just a huge, huge loser. We need a serious coach.
  14. well it was the biggest game of the season and we won, its extra exciting for PAO fans because up to the 2nd half of this game our season had been a total disaster and disapointment. I don't think there would be much recovering from -7. Now that we won, our confidence should pick up, and then pick up again when Ninis and Leto come back. We have to win in Kazan tommorow if we want to stay in Europe.....Even with this big win in OAKA, i dont see it happening.
  15. Theyre missing a top CF, but their goal/only really good instance of the whole match was done by him single handedly...So I dont buy it in the least bit. OSFP had posesion first half but didn't create. They were missing Panetlic, we had 2 starters recovering from injury, and Leto and Ninis out... PAO was not great, but Olympiakos wasnt anything either. PAO made the best of it credit due for pulling off the comeback.
