  1. this is NOT an OLYMPIAKOS UCL SQUAD!!

    If we attacked ..10-0 was a possibility....

    I think we need to acknowledge, that as individuals we have some decent footballers...as a TEAM..This is the worst TEAM by UCL standards we have EVER HAD!! And we are  in the hardest group possible!!

    Remember last season with arguably a more settled team.. we struggled vs APOEL, Young Boys...

  2. do not underestimate how strong this Barca team is...

    No Greek team from any era, would do much better against this Barca team if the Greek team has been thrown together over a few weeks...

    Greek teams to do well at this level MUST Keep the same core for 2-3 seasons then refine strengths and weaknesses...

    We had 11 blokes who played together for the first time vs THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD!!!..

    Just try and comprehend that...

    Botia and Nikolaou HAVE NEVER BEEN PARTNERED AT CD BEFORE..And they were asked to FACE MESSI AND SUAREZ!!

    Anyone that expected anymore from today is delusional...10 men or not!!

  3. The only chance we have to ever be competitive at this level and take points is to build a strong core and keep them over 4/5/6 years..

    I only wonder how strong a unit we would be if we had some of these guys still playing together.

     

    Toro

    Marcano

    Manolas

    K.Pap

    Holebas

    Samaris

    Mazuaku

    Weiss

    Mitroglou

    Kasami

    Mirallas

    Roberto

    Fejsa

    Perez

    etc.....these guys are all still playing at the highest levels....

    the concept of taking Nicolaou, Engels, Proto, Koutris, Zdeljar to Torino and expect anything but a brave fight is ridiculous..

    The team needs stability...the revolving door is killing us...and making us dysfunctional at this level..

  4. I am sure Manolas tries and cares...

    The coach would pick up on it otherwise...

     

    Our problem is that Taxi, Samaris have had little game time in the last few months..

     

    Mitro, Karelis are injured..Klaus has fallen off the face of the planet in the last 24 months...

    We lack creativity and speed out wide...

    Lazaros should be recalled....But let's not forget that 12 months ago he was also MIA...And part of the problem..not the solution

    We need to win in Cyprus...so my 11 would be:

     

    ..............................Karnezis.......................

     

    Toro.................Sokratis......Manolas..........Staf

     

    ..................................Taxi.......................................

    Lazaros...................Fortounis.......Zeca.........Donis

     

    ......................................Mitro...................................

     

    If Mitro is not fit or ready..I'd play Donis upfront and Giannotas out wide...

     

    Subs:

    Tzavellas

    K.Pap

    Retsos

    Mandalos

    Maniatis

    Samaris

    PAO are in trouble no denying that, JVC is right OLY get into CL all these years and how far have they gotten? Also when they play away from Athens they almost certainly come away with an L (rare exception being game at Arsenal). PAO in CL have a far more successful history.

    I think we need to out things into perspective...

    there is the 'ancient era' - PAO making Euro Final

    the 'old era' PAO making semis X2 and Oly making QF...

     

    AND THE VERY MODERN ERA...THE LAST 5-8 years...where Oly made last 16 twice..

    In the very modern era making the last 16 is a huge success..

     

    the goal posts have changed and not too many teams outside the Elite will be making QF/SF..

    If you compare the last 5 UCL campaigns of both you will find Oly have done better..

    And Oly's last 5 would be in this decade where the bar has been raised much higher even compared to the era pre 2010

  6. I find it interesting that many Greeks believe Belgium will not try v Bosnia...yet believe Cyprus will go all out to beat Greece..

    The logic in this 'conspiracy theory' baffles me....

    I doubt that EPO will approach CFA to roll over...Too risky if leaked...

    You need to essentially have some players or coach on board..coach is a foreigner the risk is magnified... again way too risky..

    Most likely scenario...Individual Cyprus players are fully aware of what is at stake..I guess their own 'patriotic duty' will prevail....they will chase balls at 80%...they will jump at 70% ..they will 'forget' to deploy the offside trap....

    They will over hit a corner...they will go for the 30 yard shot..instead of playing a team mate in...
