  1. Well that one should at least feel like a home game.
  2. The frustrating thing is a switched on manolas and sokratis would be huge for this young team at the back..can jvs trust them though? Mitroglou is done i think, not sure he fits into the current style of play.
  3. It’s funny how players like Mantalos and Bakasetas were whipping boys for criticism yet now we are starting to see what they are capable of playing in a system that actually lets them play. The team is a joy to watch right now...the high pressing is brilliant we have stolen the ball off the opposition more times in our attacking half the last 3 games than the previous 4 years combined lol.
  4. Another good performance, finally starting to see a team that doesn’t look half asleep, 19 shots, 64% possesion, many clear cut chances. Good chance we will finish the group 3rd...it should have been so much more, but baby steps first, we have a team thats actually watchable now.
  5. I only saw the last 10 minutes, I nearly fell off the couch when I saw us high pressing and playing with intensity, will need to watch the replay 25 shots is ridiculous by our standards.
  6. What a disaster, 40 minutes ago in a great position to get 2nd. Now dead last and 2 losses against bayern to come..likely wont even get 3rd.
  7. When was the last time this guy played a serious match? Anyone in a mickey mouse league like the Australian or mls should be automatically ruled out. And on Cyprus no crap they are winning 3-0..they actually look like they wanna be there and are competing hard. Even the blockheads are up 2-0 at latvia..another game we would have no chance of winning right now.
  8. Im willing to accept not making qatar if it means we sort ourselves out and make a serious tilt for 2026 us/canada/mexico...short of Australia or Greece hosting that would be my next favourite world cup to attend.
  9. World cups are out of the question. Future Euros are a possibility but still hard. Van Schip really had no idea what he had walked into. As much as im not a fan the rot had set in long before his arrival. However i did say one thing about Van Schip seeing him coach in Melbourne and thats that his teams always copped goals in the last 10 minutes of games with alarming regularity...yesterday was no exception.
  10. Yeh we don’t box out it’s infuriating, we gave them so many second chance points. I can’t believe a nothing basketball country like the Czecks is advancing and we aren’t.
  11. 7 point win not enough...they hit 18 of 19 free throws and we were a pathetic 10 of 19 I think. The 2 charges called on Giannis were a disgrace but overall we didn’t deserve to advance.
  12. This team is a disgrace, basically lost it from the foul line.
  13. Based on this thread EPO should move the next home qualifier to Toronto lol.
  14. The crazy thing about all this is as scores currently stand had we beaten Finland we would have ended this matchday in 2nd position lol.
  15. Im watching the ert coverage. Theyre all saying a 12 point win is required. Who would have thought we would hold the US to 69 and still lose easily.
  16. No we aren’t eliminated, the commentators mentioned late in the game we have to win by 13 or more. USA will definately beat Brazil. I can’t see us winning let alone by that score. That was our worst shooting percentage performance since 1998! Brick after brick on so many open looks.
  17. We need to beat the Czecks by 13 or more. Absolutely no chance the way we are shooting the ball
  18. Our shooting is disgraceful, 26% seriously we won’t even be going to the Olympics at this rate. Giannis has passed so many open looks and we have missed everything.
  19. Why are they saying on the Greek news the czeks are +12 ahead of us?
  20. We can’t afford to lose by more than 10 I think...a more narrow win for Czecks would have been ideal.
  21. Brazil lost to the Czechs, so we are still alive if we lose to the US...most likely now it comes down to us against the Czecks
  22. It goes to points differential I think. So we beat Montenegro by 25, lost to Brazil by 1, beat NZ by 6...that makes us +30 currently, in the event of us and Brazil finishing on the same wins then it would come into play, ideally you would have preferred to best NZ by more than 6. As it stands our points differential is better then Brazil I think.
