  1. Today Sznaucner was the coach during the game as Garcia was in Athens studying for his UEFA Pro coaching license. Maybe Malezas stays with U-19 and Sznaucner taking over 'B' team. I don't believe Garcia will stay with the team unless Lucescu quits and he takes over the senior team (highly unlikely). From what I hear Panserraikos is very interested to have Garcia as the head coach when they return to Superleague next season.

  2. We only have 3 players on loan currently. Tsiggaras, Vrakas and Taylor. Taylor is probably coming from his loan to Shakhtar as well. 

    If Tsiggaras is 100% healthy I expect him to be the only loaned player to remain on the team past the training camp. Not sure what the big shots have in mind with Taylor. 

    I also want to see how they will handle Murg. Last year they tried to unload him unsuccessfully, and I think they will have a hard time doing it this season as well. Only an idiot would give up 500K per year just sitting on the bench.

  3. I think we have very good chance of making the group stage of Conference League.  With the 25.000 points we will definitively be seeded in Rounds 2 and 3 and most likely also in the Play-Off round.

    Currently we are seeded 4th (out of 45) in Round 2 and the possible confirmed opponents are the following teams:

    Beitar Jerusalem           ISR     5.000
    Hammarby IF                SWE   4.750
    Kalmar FF                      SWE   4.750
    Zalgiris Kaunas             LIT      4.500
    Pogon Szczecin           POL     4.150
    Zalaegerszeg TE          HUN   4.125
    Kecskeméti TE              HUN   4.125
    Sepsi OSK                     ROM   4.100
    FK Borac Banja Luka    BOS    4.000
    Sabah FK                      AZB     3.325
    Ordabasy Shymkent     KAZ    2.525
    FK Aktobe                     KAZ     2.525
    NK Celje                       SLO      2.500
    FK Auda                       LAT       2.125

    In Round 3 we are currently seeded in 6th place (out of 27) and possible confirmed opponents are the following teams:

    Hajduk Split                  CRO   9.000
    SK Brann Bergen          NOR   5.800

    In the Play-Off we will need to be in the top 17 to be seeded.

    thanks for the info guys. we are in Greece for a month and the eldest is a talented footballer here in Australia and I thought we might see if we could find a training session to go and watch.

    Hopefully you can get a chance to see PAOK's last game of the season and the title fiesta that will follow the game:

    On Saturday, may 20 at 16:00 EEST, PAOK's women team will play it's final game of the season at Toumba Stadium against OFI. Immediately after the game a fiesta will be held at the stadium to celebrate the national title that the team won. Attendance for the game and the fiesta is free. 

  5. Kargas is a decent player, but he is not to be a starter on PAOK and he was not acquired to be a starter. He was bought to be a backup. The players who would replace Crespo were Nasberg and Michailidis, but Michailidis sustained a serious injury.  Eventually Koulierakis grabbed the chance to claim a spot on the team and we ended up with 3 players for one spot. It looks like we are trying to unload one of them (Kargas). I don't thing getting red-carded should be the main reason for being dropped from the team.


  6. Latest rumors:

    Players whose contracts expire and will not be renewed:

    Biseswar, El Kaddouri, Kurtic, Oliveira

    Players that the team will try to unload (even if they have contracts):

    Kargas, Murg, Ninua

    Players that will probably stay:

    Dantas (loan extension)
    Thomas (PAOK will exercise the 1 year option in the contract)

    Unknown fate:

    Vieirinha (depends on what he decides)
    Zivkovic Zivko (contract expires)
    Talichmanidis (contract expires)

    Possible sales:

    I expect one of the Koulierakis, Konstantelias to be sold
