  1. He had a chance to move to Cardiff in 2018 when they were in the PL but turned it down. Was eventually loaned out to Galatasaray. That didn't work out. Then he was on loan at PSV, used mostly as a sub, scored 1 goal. Not much mins. Back at Marseille, not playing and will see out his contract, which runs to 30Jun21. He'll be 33, so who knows what he'll do then. What's not clear, is what condition he's in.
  2. Haha, no way. Moldova is ranked 175. There is only Liechtenstein, Malta, Gibraltar and San Marino beneath them in the Eurozone. If we drop points, to Moldova, then better not come back to Greece.
  3. So it seems. Unless he told JVS to go <expletive> himself, then I don't get the life time ban. What is this? Maybe JVS doesn't rate him, or he's too old or he's too short. We could have done with his positional smarts on the RH side. Just saying. For the record, Fetfa was subbed in 84' vs Bosnia (for Limnios), has played NMT 10 mins in a single match under JVS and assisted 1 goal for the NT. Not bad.
  4. Just my thoughts. Now we will probably need to beat Slovenia at home to top the Group. If we fail to top thIs Group, it will be another flop. We struggled to get our FBs behind them. Limited our attacking. JVS should have brought on Fetfa, I mean Rota, and not Lambroloulos and gone to a 3 5 2. Bouchalakis strengths are his passing game and shooting. When that goes, better to stay on the bench. We lack pace in the midfield. We need more orthodox RB or change to 3 5 2. Hatzidiakos is better as CB, not RB. In the 4 2 3 1 formation either he stays as CB and partner
  5. It does. We get promoted to League B + we slowly climb up the FIFA rankings. For 2022 Qatar, Europe qualifiers First round, 10 group winners automatically qualify for Qatar. Second round (play-offs( will be contested by the ten group runners-up and the best two Nations League group winners, based on the Nations League overall rankings that finished outside the top two of their qualifying group. The format, is three groups of 4 (12 teams) vying for 3 places, playing single leg semi finals and a single leg final. No home and away games. It's unlikely we will be Group winners
  6. Oh, I saw an EPO video and I thought Stafylidis was in the squad. Cool. In that case, I think he will start Svarnas who was invited to the press conference. I get JVS. After the draw with Lietchenstein, he just made up his mind to start with a new breed of players. He looked at the core leadership group, Soc, Torosides, Manolas, all players that the younger players look up to, and thought if I go forward with these guys they would be a hindrance to his plans, vision. And, we know what happened to the previous coach.
  7. Possible starting line-up Barkas* Rota Hatzidiakos Stafylidis Giannoulis Kourbelis Zeca Limnios Bakasetas Pelkas* Pavlidis* *Or Vlacho, Fountas, Fortounis But, seriously we should be able to field a B side vs Moldova and get the desired result.
  8. Surely, Rota has to make his debut vs Moldova, when the first selection is out injured. Otherwise, why invite him. Currently plays at Fortuna Sittard. Recent highlights vs VVV-Venlo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1HIGRjVJo0
  9. Let's hope we don't slip up with Moldova. It's been ages since we scored more than 2 goals in a match.
  10. Here is an interesting stat. Bakasetas, GP 27 Goals 0. When you consider the position he plays, he has to be due to open his account for the NT. The other stat I don't like is Koulouris GP 16, Goals 0.
  11. Holebas decided to retire from NT during Scibbe era, and was invited back by Anastasiadis, but stayed away. Not the same. By the way, I'm a fan of van't Schipp, and I like what he is trying to do. Siovas was our best player in the 2 games just played. I can understand leaving out Soc, Manolas when you have at least Siovas. But, with Siovas demise, Hatzidiakos is not ready from a serious injury, Stafylidis inj., I think that at least one of Soc, Manolas will need to come back for the rest of Nation League as to go with inexperienced CBs is too risky. IMO. We have to top the Group in
  12. Dumping of Siovas is probably justified, for reasons given, and the coach can invite whoever he wants. Coach has in the past, said he has not discounted Soc, Manolas inclusion. But, why not come out at the start of NL and say the door is STILL open for Soc, Manolas but he is not going to use them for these matches. If he's never going to select them again, then at least let the players and media know, and his reasons for their exclusion. Like them or not, these players have given great service to the NT and deserve a bit better treatment, IMO.
  13. Looks like a deal has been done with Napoli. https://m.sport24.gr/football/EllinesExoterikou/napoli-symfwnhse-me-arsenal-gia-papastathopoylo.5746844.html

  15. I hope by the time WC qualifier start we can recover and get to Pot 3 to have a slim chance. Can you imagine coming up against two OR three top nations in qualifications. The top 13 UEFA nations are in the top 19 in FIFA. This is where we need to reach. Short term, we should be aiming to top our group in the Nations League, establish a home field dominance and from there build on a solid WC qualification campaign where we push the favorites down to the wire. We need to be competitive with Pot 1/2 teams. Maybe with a bit of luck we can place ourselves into a big match and anything can
