  1. I agree I wasn’t happy with all the call ups either and I think we can field a stronger line up, but I think JVS is using these games to to see what he has and to build a system that everyone buys into. Vlachodimos was a head scratcher for me why he wasn’t called up, also I don’t think Svarnas can hang with better opponents and Bakakis is not the answer. As I said before in regards to Manolas who is one of if not the most solid defender we have as long as he can come in and not distrupt the team morale and buy into the coaches plan them I’m for it. I also think we need to find a better combination for our two midfielders, Zeca is a work horse and he plays with heart and hustle but he lacks the skill needed in that position to help drive our offence. I like where the team is headed right now but I do agree we need some tweaking done to our line up. Also Staf should only be a bench option when everyone is healthy and not a starter.

  2. I don't get why all the anger. Guys when we weren't qualifying for tournaments and losing to the Faroe Islands there was less anger and now that this coach has us unbeaten in 5 games and the top of our group for the first time guys are still bitching.. Were we all happy the way Greece played against Bosnia ,Armenia and Finland with this same coach? Yes. Was this the prettiest football we played this week?? No, but did we find a way to get results?? YES.. Its not always going to be pretty but a team that has confidence and is building towards something better finds a way to grind out some wins in some ugly games and the exactly what this team did. Everyone needs to chill out and let the guy do what he's paid to do as he is getting us RESULTS.. In a perfect world we would not see Staf starting or Bakakis or Svarna who i thought played okay but it's his call and as long as he keeps getting results no one should bitch.. We've tried it with Manolas and Socratis for 5 years and it didn't work, I'm not saying i wouldn't give Manolas another chance but if you call him up and play him limited minutes or don't call up Socratis with him this wont sit well with him and i don't think JVS wants to disrupt the team he's trying to build.

    Regarding Fetfa JVS gave him a chance and what did he do? he was late for a team meeting and he bitched about playing time so good on JVS to not select him. He's showing the players that the days of Players dictating who plays and when are not going to fly with this Coach.

    I'm not happy with all the players that were called up and starting but we got results so until JVS starts losing i think we need to give the guy a chance. Like F*** we are winning and guys are trying to run this coach out of town..

    The only thing i think JVS needs to be careful of IMO is trying to develop players that's not his job that's the club teams job, JVS should be looking for guys that will fit his system and work there asses off for the NT.

    Unfortunately it means nothing and its laughable that we've scrapped a win against a country that didnt even have a team a few years ago. 

    Just take it man we haven't been playing lights out the last 5 years to say its laughable is not the right mentality we are a rebuilding team with a new coach and our now unbeaten in our last 5 games.  When we were winning years ago we would barely beat these type of teams 1-0. Kosovo has tied Denmark, beat the Czech, tied Finland and scored 3 goals on England in a loss. We are headed in the right direction and we need to keep building.

  4. This game is a must win for us. you need to think Slovenia will win and be at 4 points. I'm hearing the only change for this game will be masouras for Mantalos and Tzolis for Pavlidis. I really want to see Fourtounis in for Bakasetas. I know Bakasetas has had a good year but if we want our best chance to score some goals we need Fortounis who can thread some passes and create space. Not sure why baskasetas has become an automatic starter.

  5. Tsimikas tests positive for covid, all players and staff are waiting for their  results before they can confirm whether they can play on Sunday or the game is cancelled.

    The Rule from Uefa as I understand it is, if a player tests positive and you can still filled a team of 13 players including a goalie without calling anyone else up then you can play, if not you take the lose, if both teams have covid cases and can’t field 13 players then it’s considered a draw..

  6. Kosovo just tied Moldova who are 175th overall in the FIFA rankings. Even though we didn't play great we controlled the game, we definitely lack finishers who can put the ball in the net. I still think this is a step forward as the previous NT under a different coach would have found a way to concede a late goal. This is an okay result which we can continue to build on.
