  1. I’n all honesty in order for us to have a chance at 2nd in this group JVS has to call up Manolas and Siovas and then you have a back line of them with Hatz and Tsimikas. You need to bench Bakasetas and have Fortounis in the middle and the wingers should be Tziolis, Liminos, Masouras and Fountas.  I would also like to see Donis he has good one on one speed and quick feet. As far as our Midfield its an Issue and so is the striker position.  Pavlidis hasn’t showed me anything.

  2. You Cannot go into this qualifier with Mantalos on the wing or Bakasetas in the middle. I think right now on the wing you need to start Tzolis and Liminos on the wing with Fortounis in the middle. As far as a striker goes i don't know what the answer is maybe try Fountas??? I know Mitro might sign with Oly but i don't think we want to go down that road again as he has completely fallen out of form and will not present anything to the team unless you literally feed him the ball. As far as our midfield this has been an ongoing problem and our current duos are not the answer. Manolas and Siovas need to be revisited before this campaign starts because our current back line will get shredded against the top seeded teams in our group.

    That's right the tougher the opposition Greece up there game as they did in Belgium drawing a World class side and minutes from winning that game in Brussels. Who knows maybe we get a result vs Spain. Sweden are a good hard working side but they can be beat. There top talisman is Berg but he is not as big a threat as he once was when he played for PAO. JVS has to be careful the team doesn't let there guard down when playing vs Georgia or Kosovo.

    That will be key As Greece can not afford to drop one single point to either Georgia or Kosovo, if they do they are done as I don’t see Sweden getting anything but wins against those teams. Also we need to realize this won’t be anything like the nations league where we had majority of possession as Spain we know but Sweden will control more of the ball so we better shore up our defence and put the best possible players available if we want the best chance at taking points from Sweden. I’m games against Sweden and Spain you know you will have guys back so your hoping to catch something on the counter attack.

  4. I don’t think it’s completely hopeless, Will it be difficult? 100% it will. Can JVS Continue with the same line up against these teams? Short answer No. But m not going to be like that clown @Torontobluewho comes on hear and just trolls everyone like a clown putting up laughing emojis everywhere.. The guy is talking like everyone on hear said we will advance and beat Sweden and Spain.. No one said that everyone recognized this team has a difficult task ahead.. Are chances high that we finish 2nd? No, Obviously Sweden are favoured to take second but is it an impossible task? I don’t think so. But let’s see what happens. Maybe being in such a difficult group may force JVS to call on Manolas and finally put Fortounis in the middle and sit Bakasetas.. You never know.. JVS is happy the way the team is adapting to his style of play but in his mind after seeing the team play in Nations league he has to think if he fields the same line up against so much better competition there is no chance of advancing. Maybe this will force him to finally make the much needed changes.

    Fortounis being a starter probably means he will start on the wing while Bakasetas starts as a CAM!

    Fun fact: I called Skibbe a "tactically astute head coach" in a former post of mine in 2017! LOL 🤣🤣🤣

    Exactly.... If Fortounis is a starter he will 100% be on the wing while Bakasetas who is s%$#! starts in the middle.. This logic makes zero sense.. 

  7. I don't know who the answer is but unless we can come up with a solid duo at CM we will be limited as to how far this team can go. I like Zeca he hustles and is full energy but him alongside Bouchalakis or Kourbelas are not the answer they are not good enough. This was a huge problem ever since post 2014 world cup and still we don't have a competent duo.

  8. Honestly I just can’t believe in all of Greece we can’t find one natural striker that can score goals on a consistent basis. Also we have reached our ceiling as a team as long as we have a week midfield with Zeca and Kourbelis/Bouchalakis, they are just not good enough and we can only go so far as a good midfield will take you.. This is a real problem for us and I don’t know who's the answer.. We all know Fortounis should be an automatic starter every game and NOT on the wing you need to put him in the middle but JVS is reluctant to play the guy to his strengths.. I almost garuntee if JVS starts two natural wingers like Tzolis or Masouras alongside Liminios then he will sit Fortounis and play Bakasetas in the middle he won’t sit him at all.. He’s living and dying with this guy for some reason and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.. But until we address our striker and midfield problems I don’t think we can compete with higher tear teams and this is proof once again that we couldn’t top an easy group even though we played well and didn’t lose we are just not good enough to advance past this right now..
