  1. As always when there are hardly any concrete facts, go with Occam’s razor. According to Siabanis “someone” from PAOK tried to bribe him. Siabanis left PAOK on quite bad terms. The club tried in vain to retain his services and in the end he chose to not sign a new contract with PAOK. So in all likelihood, if you were PAOK, ask yourself, would Siabanis be the first or the last player you would try and bribe ? Knowing he has no love for PAOK why would you try and bribe him ? Side note: If I wanted to actually fix a game I’d be speaking to Karypidis and his relative who “lost” the ga
  2. Forget about the ref calls. Some will go your way some won’t. If you wait for all the right calls each game you’ll be waiting forever. Penalty ? I wouldn’t have paid it. But who cares. If you can score 4 goals you can beat the unlucky calls. But we can’t do that. Struggle to score one let alone two per game. Simply put, not enough firepower. No full backs scoring goals ala Matos/Vieirinha. Lack of goals from midfield ala Mauricio/Shakhov. No striker. No ten. Where will the goals come from ? Can’t rely on Zivkovic and Tzolis cutting in to score every time. Importantly, a la
  3. All of a sudden this got all complicated and technical. Filters, pop, mp3, isolation chambers, shields, warp drives. Maybe Boston just needs to get his ear checked. 😄 On a serious note, the audio quality is ... ok. Specifically CT sounds very good. But paokarag4 sounds not so good - kind of like a dodgy skype call. But you can make him out just fine. It’s not as if you can’t make him out. The only episode that was completely dodgy was the first one where I had to adjust the volume all the way up when pg4 spoke and all the way down when CT spoke. That was funny. Moral of the s
  4. Exactly - the fix is in. So you're stuffed either way. Time to watch another sport - maybe women's tennis ?
  5. @Dutch Eagle how are the Dutch media reporting the game ? Are they making out like PSV were unlucky or just had a "bad" day ? Any praise for PAOK - or is it just a case of they made mistakes ?
  6. +42 Some coaches just over engineer their teams unnecessarily. What they see, I don't know. Keep it simple. Adjust to your opponent if they are clearly superior, likewise if they are clearly inferior. Exploit obvious weaknesses. Be flexible when required. It's not that hard. Ferreira seemed to get it right in Europe with the 3-4-3 we did well but he'd use the same system in the GSL for no valid reason. Maybe he thought the players can't cope with two systems. Really ? I don't know if Garcia got lucky today, time will tell. One thing is for sure, he won't accept crap per
  7. With Garcia one thing is for sure - we will win the title for yellow cards.
  8. Yeah not good. I’d like to know how many injuries have occurred during training. Seems to be too many.
  9. What the heck, when did Garcia learn to speak Greek ? Last time I saw an interview with him he had a translator. I like how he’s ready to punch on, ha ha. https://www.contra.gr/opinions/stauros-karaindros/o-gkarsia-esvise-ton-fereira-san-min-perase-pote-apo-ton-paok.9034980.html
  10. We need Dutch Eagle to lift the Dutch curse. Acquire a peponi, a chicken and the services of the best voodoo practitioner you can find. If you are having trouble, there is a PAOK fan in Zambia that may assist.
  11. Good choice regarding Malezas. One of our boys.
  12. Well this came out of left field. Never could I have imagined any team being interested in wanting to acquire Abel as their manager, let alone a big club like Palmeiras. It’s quite bizarre really. Maybe Savvidis has gangster contacts in Brazil and there is black money being sloshed around offshore accounts. A case of conspiracy theory making more sense than anything else. Regardless, much to my surprise, I’m not that keen on Abel leaving. Yes, he can be inflexible but overall he has the team in a decent state. The squad is quite fit, and we are playing a decent brand of football. I
  13. Soares adequate, hmm, he’s half the player Matos is. Anyway what’s done is done. The way we send off players that served the club well, that’s kafeneio 103. Who knows, maybe he’ll be back in 3 weeks. Deficit ? Do we still have one ? Anyone have some figures.
  14. You say that about everyone ha ha. Is there any player you wouldn’t want to be sold ? I’d be ok with this if we had an equivalent player but we don’t. He’s been our best RB since probably Borbokis. Not easy to find a quality full back. We can’t buy a goal to save our lives and we get rid of a full back that you know will score you 5 goals a season and drives the team. And we just made him a “captain” ... kafeneio 101 kafeneio 102.
  15. paokarag4 has nailed it with the clubs dealings with exisiting players. Not a good look - straight from kafeneio 101. As for Vieirinha don’t write a long goodbye and then 3 weeks later you “changed your mind”. That looks just as bad.
