  1. It was all up to Warda to still be part of the team and he blew it. Once again. And for the 3rd straight time. And if the rumors of sexual misconduct against a minor are true he has no place on this team, or any other team for that matter. If that mafioso Beos does not want anything to do with him, than things are serious. Enough of Warda. He will only create distractions down the road if he stays.

    Zivkovic might be better thank Kagawa, but yesterday he was one of our worst players, starting with the miss into an empty goal in the 2nd minute of the game. But let's not pick on specific players. The whole team sucked. Unless the team's attitude changes in the return match we will have difficulties advancing.

    PAOK’s History against teams from Ireland in European Competitions

  3. There is no excuse for not winning this match. We went into the game thinking the win would come automatically. Add to it childish mistakes in the first half and the rest is history. In the second half we improved, but could not crack the parked bus. We will face the parked bus in the second game, so Lucescu better come up with some answers. I hate to say it, but Biseswar has to start over Kagawa next week.

  4. We did quite poorly in Sailing where we had success in the past. The best we can now accomplish is 4th place in men's 470. 

    I think Drisbioti will be a surprise. See her win in the European Walking Cup earlier this year. She might not medal, but I think she will finish at the top.

    Karalis was a pleasant surprise. He was close to jumping 5.87. The future belongs to him.

    Douvalidis needs to stick around, as there are currently no young prospects that can race below 14 seconds. I am afraid that will be the case for at least the next 3 or 4 years. Douvalidis will remain our no. 1 for a while. Hopefully he won't have such a difficult season as this one (multiple injuries and Covid on top of it).

    Our Synchronized Swimming team was banned from participating in the Olympic competition as 3 more athletes from the team came down with Covid. Also our two athletes in the Duet will not be able to compete in the second part of the competition for the same reason.

    Now we wonder how many more medals can Greece get before the Olympics end?

    I think we can squeeze out one more medal. Best possibility is probably Stefanidi in pole vault, but there is strong competition in that event.

    Other chances, but less likely are in water polo, Drisbioti in 20 km walk, Volikakis in cycling and maybe Prevolaraki in wrestling.

  6. The whole Warda situation is beginning to sounds very fishy to me. 

    Over the weekend there was a report that there is a Superleague player that was reported to the EPO Disciplinary Committee with sexual abuse allegations.

    Today the Volos mayor and NFC Volos owner came out saying that as much as he loves Warda and as a player, he has decided not to pursue his transfer to Volos because of ethical issues that have no place on his football team.

  7. This could be a good day for our athletes, but let's not get our hopes up like we did in the past few days only to be disappointed. Tentoglou should medal, but it will be a tough competition with the Cuban who jumped 8.50m in qualifying. The gold medal will be decided in the 8.70 m mark.

    Petrounias is the favorite for the gold, but he returned to full competition only recently. His past experience will surely help him.

    As for Iakovidis there was no scandal. It was just the athlete breaking down after the competition spilling his guts on how difficult it is for the Greek athletes to train for the Olympics, with minimal help from the government, while politician fat cats, such as the Minister of Sports writing himself 20,000 Euro check from state funds so he could travel to Tokyo and take picture with the successful athletes.
