  1. We can be a top 20 team. We just need a good coach. In 2004 Greece were the underdogs. Then they won the whole thing. They fought for the shirt and played as a team. We had more leaders then aswell. Rehaggel made the team gel. We have decent players currently it’s all about wanting to fight for the shirt and the coach playing the right players. We can improve. I hope Van’t Schipt does something amazing and the team gets to back where it belongs and that’s the top 20. It will take time. We also need a massive cleanup at EPO.
  2. I thinks it’s based on form such as losses and wins. We’ve been losing lately and it’s understandable to be this low. We haven’t made tournaments. It does seem lower than expected but hopefully with the ranking of 60th, the EPO can now understand how bad they are at running the team m. They are the most at fault for all this.
  3. I hope this time it’s not the case but I think you are right. EPO don’t care about the success of the team. They are money grabbing morons.
  4. He says all the right things and it was also interesting he said this: “Στην Ολλανδία η ομοσπονδία είναι εντελώς ανεξάρτητη και ο προπονητής διαλέγει τους καλύτερους. Δεν υπάρχουν πολιτικές ισορροπίες κι αυτό θα κάνω κι εγώ". He says the Dutch federation is completely independent and the coach picks the best players. There is no political balances and that’s what I’m going to do. (Meaning he will pick the best players.) What I get from this is he is indirectly saying that the EPO are political and are involved in call ups. Where as in the Netherlands it’s not like that. Al
  5. I agree. Retsos is a smart young player won’t be too long until he gets his starting spot back. Played very well in the Greece u21 loss to Germany. Very versatile players. Played well at CDM/CM. And covered a lot of ground.
  6. I think the team lacks cohesion. We need to find a team and stick to it. I hope with this next restart proper players with talent are called up and players who are going to be needed down the road. Meaning Samaris shouldn’t play. We are lacking creativity and finishing. We need more quality outwide too. These areas need fixing. I don’t know if we have the quality players to help this. Maybe L.Lamprou gets a look. Maybe Galanopoulos too. I’d like to see Lykogiannis again. Koutris should be our starting LB. Vlachodimos should go back in goals. Donis needs to start in this team. Fetfatzidis has t
  7. You are right in a way. Manolas is the most useful player to have on this team. Great at headers, especially in corners. Great defender and has pace. I was really surprised he couldn’t catch the Lichtenstein forward. I expected more. Even Sokratis was trying to catch him. After they scored my heart sunk. I couldn’t believe it also Barkas should’ve done better but he isn’t to blame. Samaris and Bakakis are not good enough for this team. We have to find replacements. Maybe Tachtsidis needs to come back.
  8. Listen guys we have to stop talking about lineups, coaches and tactics. We have to start a revolution. We need to start blaming the EPO for all of this! They are indeed at fault here. The corruption has gotten out of control and is the reason the team is falling down the rankings...
  9. With all do respect can you tell me why are you here then if this doesn’t mean anything.
  10. So way the you feel your fine with the way things are... Your not gutted whatsoever... Why do we? Why do comment and complain? This is a part of life... everything’s is apart of life we come here to express our opinions and love for the team and clearly the team is hitting rock bottom. It’s not fine if your passionate in a team and they keep losing. Yes it’s a apart of life but things has to change and us fans have to make our voices heard. I can’t get over this...
  11. We support and follow the team. All we want is for the team to achieve and make us proud. Ofcourse we are apart of the team. Why are you here if you don’t care??
  12. I know man I can’t describe how angry and disappointed I feel. Who ever is laughing is not Greek. You shouldn’t be on these forums...
  13. Who here thinks Manolas and Sokratis purposely let Liechtenstein score the goal??
  14. We have become a complete joke! Everyone is to blame. The coach is the least to blame out of everyone. Grammenos needs to get out. The players disgust me...
  15. I just think the person taking the corner has to do better. Fortounis is naturally a great crosser. When he takes them we usually look dangerous. Same could be said with Koutris. Going forward we will need these 2 for set pieces and creativity in general.
  16. It’s actually very sad. We are playing worse I think than the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Or maybe the same. This group don’t work well together and I don’t know why. There is no cohesion. They are like individuals. We can’t be this bad. We so clueless when comes to attacking. And that’s from the midfield to the front. We haven’t got players in the middle to demand the ball. I don’t know exactly what needs to happen. One or two I’ve come to realise, will not change anything. Fetfatzidis for all the praise I give him and Fortounis for all good things he does is not enough. Manolas and Sokratis
  17. It’s actually very simple. Play your fastest and most skill full players. Koutris, Donis, Tsimikas, Pelkas, Masouras, Vrousai and Fetfatzidis have speed. We need to utilise there speed and give them instructions to run into space and then create opportunities. Fortounis or Tachtsidis can be the providers and set up goals. You can have Koulouris ( I’m a bit harsh with him as I’m not a big fan) or Pavlidis in the box ready to score. Kourbelis is not going to solve our problem. Bouchalakis the same. These guys are reserve players for any of the top 10 countries. The only players that you co
  18. At the end of the day goals matter and Koulouris has proven that he can score. In this Greece team its no good just to wait for service, you have to make things yourself and Koulouris can’t go that extra step. Pavlidis can as I’ve seen in Holland. We need to players to work, make runs, tackle etc. I’m questioning his ball skills because I don’t think he can make things happen he is good at getting on the end of the ball like a tap in, header. He is too limited for me. But he is a great poacher.
  19. I have to agree with everything you said. You are spot on. Our players haven’t got character. Even in the tunnel they looked depressed and too serious. They need to enjoy themselves and play hard for the team. They need to have balls. In regards to Koulouris, I understand the service is terrible I do, but I’m looking at it differently. Like what can offer apart from poaching? That’s what I’m hoping for. He is just another Gekas I think. He isn’t explosive enough. Just like Mitroglou can’t creat something for himself or isn’t good enough to create something for himself. He does try and he does
  20. I don’t think he can, trust me. I’ve seen him very close, he has to have quality players around him. International level is different. He is not going to get you out of trouble. Technically on the ball he is one of our worst in my opinion. Pavlidis looked more dangerous with the few touches he had. You can tell he is better. If anything he should be used as an extra striker if need be in the last 15 minutes. I prefer anyone else at ST.
  21. Look he didn’t call up Donis and Mitroglou as they are unfit. We shouldn’t have to rely on these guys all the time and when we do will still don’t get the job done most of the time. Vrousai and Pavlidis looked fine. We can use them in the future. We can work with them. You can’t work with guys like Koulouris, Kourbelis, Bakakis etc. The whole team is at fault.
  22. Vrousai did ok for his debut. We can work with him. Kolovos was bad today as was the team in general. I guess it’s time to scrap the whole team and start fresh.
