  1. For sure. Clearly an upgrade from Bakasetas.
  2. Yeah true I just hope we do make it I don’t want to see another tournament without Greece. I’d like to also stick it to the other countries as they are always envious and jealous of Greece and always underestimate us.
  3. I agree I just hope we take each game as it comes and treat like a grand final.
  4. Just a question... do you guys think we will make this tournament and if we do how far??
  5. Yeah but this team has a problem of scoring and Kolovos made sure with his header. He deserves another call up as Mantalos and Pelkas have had so many chances and wouldn’t have scored like that.
  6. I don’t think Mitroglou was ever the same after Fulham in my opinion. He did well at Benfica but was nothing like when he was at Olympiakos.
  7. Yeah I think so. It just went wide. I say give him a chance, he has all the confidence and that’s important for a striker.
  8. I feel like we will back where we belong and that’s the top 20. If our players can work hard play with passion then we can win games. Masouras and Kolovos seem like they are up for it against strong teams. Fortounis seems to be back to his best and Donis speed will be crucial for us. Add Mitroglou scoring goals, Zeca beast like hustle and our usual strong defence we can go far.
  9. He does drop back to help out which is good and does more than what Mitroglou does. He has only scored 1 long shot. A strikers needs to score in different ways. He can score with his head and is dangerous in the box but that’s about it. I hope he proves me wrong though...
  10. Should give Koulouris a full 90. Whether that’s against Italy or not you will only find out if you give him 90 minutes. Again I’m not a huge fan but I’m all for giving him a chance. I see Durmisaj more of an effective striker even though he has less goals. Only because I see other important aspects eg long range shooting, his size, speed and has some flair to his game.
  11. Welcome aboard! Glad to have you. I’m not so high on Koulouris but i see where your coming from. He should be given a proper chance to see what he can do but I can see better players for that position overall. Durmisaj can be a huge positive for us and with further development I see bigger things. Well just have to wait and see.
  12. Durmisaj is more agile than Mitroglou and can hit them from distance. Even Koulouris is more agile and faster and has now scored 24 goals in the league. I wonder what PAOK are going to do with him.
  13. What I’ve learnt is that Masouras is important to this team. When we had the ball we looked more aggressive in attack. He can finish it just didn’t go his way. Finishing is always a problem with the team. We could’ve beaten Bosnia, we had more chances at the end. If we were a bit smarter we could’ve won. Sokratis should’ve been in the box the last 10 minutes demanding for crosses to be put in.
  14. I like your ideas @Rockafeller Skank but we played a disjointed 3-5-2 or 5-3-2 in the beginning against Bosnia and we conceded 2 goals very quickly. It was only until we reverted back to our usual 4-2-3-1 that we started to get our rhythm and control of the game. Maybe it was the personnel in that formation in the first 20 minutes that caused us to concede. Bakakis for sure is not good enough. He had only 1 good moment in the game and that’s when he took the ball down from a long from Samaris and low crossed it to Fortounis who skied it infront of goal. It’s very important that we press
  15. I got to say after reading previous posts here on the game I want to congratulate @Jimmyp for your score prediction during the game... bravo megale your a champion ? ?
  16. Yeah thats true what your saying and I agree. I too want Fetfa to start playing more and prove why he should be in the team. It depends on the coach. If a coach can give him consecutive matches one after the other then you can see what I’m talking about. I don’t have to see him play to joe what he is capable I know by the way he plays. What I’m saying is his ability shouldn’t be judged on the number of games he plays but the performance he gives when given the chance. You have to look at the small details in his game, such as how he controls the ball, his decision making, passing ability, vis
  17. It’s still early although there are good signs so far. This is just the beginning but I do agree with everything you said. Masouras and Kolovos helped us in attack and are better than Mantalos and Pelkas. It’s crazy how nearly all former Panionios players have contributed greatly for the national team.
  18. I didn’t say to call him up, just stating facts. Most if not all our players can’t finish. We needed a penalty and a good header to draw against Bosnia. You can’t put no substance on Fetfatzidis. His dribbling and skill is levels above all our attackers. The issue with him could be psychological. You can’t deny his natural talent. He can create something out of nothing and on his day can destroy defences. I can’t comment on Ninis because I haven’t seen him play for a very long time. If Bakasetas can have chances and do nothing with them then Fetfatzidis deserves another chance. If not then Lam
  19. Ninis has great long balls and vision. His shooting was powerful too. Bouzoukis is another with a decent left foot. The next big thing in my opinion. Similar style to Modric and can score from distance.
  20. You can’t really use that as an example. The team were losing to an attacking powerhouse and we had an aging Katsouranis and Karagounis in our midfield. The team was playing defensive aswell. Every game he has played for Greece he has impressed. You can’t say that for many players. His ability in general can help us create something spontaneously when we need it. It wouldn’t hurt to have him come off the bench.
  21. I remember some people here were comparing Tsartas and Tachtsidis. Different playing styles and played in different positions. Fortounis and Ninis are more comparable to Tsartas. I’m not knowledgeable about him as I stared following the team during Euro 2004 just like @georgelaz. Ive seen clips, he was very good at set pieces and had an eye for a pass.
  22. Have a look at the difference in style. Durmisaj has more of an upside to Koulouris. Durmisaj can shoot powerfully outside the box and can score headers. He can hold up the play and pass to his teammates very well. Koulouris just scores tap ins and rebounds not that impressive compared to Durmisaj.
  23. It’s hard to decide now who should play because Kourbelis and Siovas had great games against Lichtenstein and Bosnia. Kourbelis is better suited as a CB. I wonder who plays and what formation. Obviously Manolas will play but we do we leave our Siovas? Also with Retsos coming back he should play over Bakakis and Torosidis. Bakakis is horrible and he is very weak. Not good enough defensively. I like what I saw from Kourbelis, he should have a starting spot. Zeca ran and fought hard all game. I’ve never seen someone with so much stamina. Masouras and Donis can be our attacking threats.
  24. Sokratis is one of our main players along with Vlachodimos, Donis, Manolas and Fortounis. They are at a higher level than most of our players so it shouldn’t be questioned. I agree with you though you shouldn’t really change a winning team. Also Kourbelis played well and should play again. I’d be disappointed if he was dropped.
