  1. Guys it's this kind of attitude that got us into this situation in the first place. We all thought we should play more attacking/had better players etc and wanted Santos gone so the NT could blossom. Look what happened! Maybe Santos and Otto they understand Greek football and our talent levels better than anyone (including us). Maybe that's why they are such successful coaches.
  2. Was just being funny mate but yes every country has a golden era at some stage. I remember the US were unlucky to lose to Belgium in the knock outs back in 2014. I'm sure Canada's time is coming.
  3. Oh mate that would be massive coup if we got Santos back! 🙏
  4. It's like my team in the AFL, Carlton. We sacked the last decent coach we had and since then we've been through five of them with no success. Sixth time lucky?
  5. Ela re it's soccer not ice hockey! 🤣
  6. As for JVS good riddance! Hopefully we can secure a decent coach to build this youngish side.
  7. I respectfully diagree with this part. We used to spank the minnows under Otto and Santos, I remember Gekas alone would score two or three. I can remember a few last gasp wins against Kazhakstan and Malta but other than that we've usually accounted for these sides quite easily.
  8. My god can you imagine? Game after game v the minnows eeking out 0-0 draws.
  9. Couldn't agree more re he is all hype and that's it. Unforgiveable the header he missed against Sweden, should be bread and butter for a guy his size.
  10. Cant blame them really can we? Cold weather, covid and JVS are three things worth avoiding.
  11. That's quite ironic. Can I tell you after we couldn't beat Kosovo I jumped on his Instagram and asked him how he could justify 1 shot at goal in the first half against the Minnows in Kosovo in a must win game. Two minutes later I was blocked. Which is effectively what he did to Siovas when he too questionned his methods. So it's obvious the guy can't take criticism in any way shape or form which must be tough for him considering what a failure he's been as a coach throughout his career.
  12. Bahahahahaha! FFS! Goodbye good riddance. Cannot beat kosovo at home. Just go away JVS please.
  13. TBH it would be great to be in a position where we can actually make a fiasco out of a big tournament. ATM we are nowhere near it.
  14. Don't me started on Fortounis I mean WTF how is this guy not playing? Manolas? JVS should be on his knees begging these guys to come back after he didn't want to play them.
  15. We are good enough to easily account for the Georgias and Kosovos of Europe and he failed to get a result when it really mattered against these two. And his choice of tactics was rubbish, fancy playing careful defensive football against those two teams, when you're playing at home in a must win game? Even against Spain we needed to win FFS so when we went 1-0 he changed nothing! NOTHING! Are you kidding me JVS for what reason would you not got for the win? Worst vase scenario we go down fighting and lose 3-0 or 4-1. To me he's clearly been protecting his job, too scared to take the risks required for reward.
  16. You do not keep an underperforming coach just because you don't know who you can get that's better. You look at cutthroat games against minnows and he manages 2-3 shots at goal for 90 minutes. Just not good enough. Couldn't even coach an A-League side to a title and he had good players for the level.
  17. JVS is no good. To sit back like that against one of the best passing sides in the world when we needed a win was just rubbish. The guy has no a*****a. Pavlidis is also complete s%$#! please if you are big, slow and skilless like that you at least need to have some sort of aerial presence. Credit to Masouras who at least makes dangerous runs and poses an attacking threat but he only finishes when he's offside. Another tournament without the Ethniki cannot believe it. 😖
  18. To be fair which Greek player has played at a better club/league in this group of players?
  19. Guys regardless of whether Samaris has a club or not he is easily the most accomplished and best Greek midfielder, has played in the strongest league against the best players. And held his own. Sure let him get a club but get him back he's light years ahead of Zeca for starters. Siopis too is rubbish. Correct me if I'm /wrong but Fortounis couldn't get a game even when he wasn't injured?
  20. Manolas, Socratis, Fortounis, Samaris. These are the best Greek players. They make up over 33% of the 11. Yet none are playing.
  21. Mavropanos was a brain fade of epic proportions. Just no need for it. Killed our spirit.
  22. Bakasetas is fine he's done well. Ninis and Fetfatzidis please. We've been there done that. Both aren't up to it. Ninis was great until he got his injury vs Israel. Those two are definitely not the answer.
