  1. Yeah Providence. My son is doing a summer program at Brown University. Thinking of checking out Cape Cod while in the area. I've been to Boston before, so it's not a must thing, but my wife would like to check it out since she has never visited the city. We'll see.
  2. You got my support my friend. B) I might even be in your neck of the woods at the end of July, as I will probably travel with my son to Rhode Island and hopefully have time to make a stop in Boston.
  3. Players not available: Kace, Rat, Konstantinidis, Golasa, Salpi, Noboa Looks like Mak and Klaus will once again play with pain killer injections. Good luck to Georgiadis getting a competitive lineup in this game. If he even cares at this point. I would go with this: ------------------- Itandje ------------------ Skondras - Vitor - Costa - Tzavellas Kitsiou --- Savvidis --- Tziolis -- Mak ------ Klaus -------- Papadopoulos -- For some players this will be the last game in PAOK's jersey
  4. I don't think they saw eye to eye since Vryzas tried to unload him to some Turkish team after one season with PAOK.

  6. No the captain can't fix problems, but he can raise the concerns. He, Salpi and Glykos as captains should have brought up the problems to everyone's attention. Nobody is bringing up the fact that there was a war between Vryzas and Anastasiadis from the start if not from the past two seasons. The hiring od Anastasiadis by Savvidis without having Vryzas step down first was a serious mistake.
  7. And I would say that if he was there from the beginning we would be in much better shape. There is a reason why the Vryzas clan did not want him on the team in any capacity.
  8. And if there are problems in the locker room, Klaus as a team captain should have come out earlier and address the situation. Perhaps we would have made a better showing in the playoffs. I think the first half of the season, we did well because the players were fresh and playing to their full potential. But even then Anastasiadis only used 13 to 14 core players in every game. We had no back up players. Once the injuries and fatigue stepped in we had no answers. The so-called "electro shock" by replacing the coach backfired as well. It probably made things worse.
  9. I think you might be right. After today's win I also think it will end in 5 games. Lightning came out blazing in the first period and got a lucky bounce that went in, but Hawks really put on some pressure in the 2nd and 3rd periods and eventually got rewarded with some good plays by Teravainen, and some key saves by Crawford to keep the team in the game.
  10. No money will fix anything if the PAOK organization does not plan things out. What good is it you bring in players such as Stoch, who tells the coach to F*** off, and the front office does not do anything about it. Same with Tzavellas, who attacked Anastasiadis, only to be benched for 2 months, and when the coach got sacked he was brought back in on the same day the coach left. No wonder there are problems in the locker room as Klaus said today. We don't need "star" players and pay them millions. We need solid players that are willing to work as a team.
  11. Klaus is also to be blamed for the pathetic showing by the team since December as well, but at least he feels for the team. The team has no plan, no vision, nothing. The players don't care, and the front office has not done anything to shake things up. Right now all they did so far is throw money at the problem by bringing in Arnesen, but without any organization and vision he will fail as well. Hopefully he will come in and restructures the team, but it will be tough. We will finish in last spot. There is no way we can get a win in Tripoli. That game is lost already. Mathematically we still have a chance to finish in 2nd place, but nobody, including the players believe in it. This might be a good game to field a team with youngsters from the U20 team. Serraios if we finish in last place we will still play in Europe. The problem is we will have our first Europa League game in mid-July. There is just no way we can prepare for the upcoming season starting so early. We should probably make it to the group stage since we will be seeded in all of the draws, but there will be a lot of damage done starting so early.
  12. Salpi has been linked to Atromitos together with his buddy Papadopoulos.
  13. I agree. We should go after core players in the 25-29 year old range. Then have older players (Rat, Salpi, etc) and youngsters (20 something) as subs. Another thought about Garcia just occurred to me. I would not be surprised if he takes over the coaching duties of the U20 team, now that Ivic is leaving for Veroia. The more I think about it, I believe that's what will happen.
  14. Garcia is coming only to satisfy the fans and make them return to empty Toumba. He will probably take over the Iosifidis position on the team, although I would prefer that he (and Lino) act as scouters for talents from Uruguay and Brazil.

  16. Only saw the first 10 minutes live, and then I was planning on watching the reply in the evening on Sport Plus. However from what I saw in those 10 minutes changed my mind and instead I watched a reply of last nights Blackhawks game against Anaheim. This team is self destructing right before our eyes. The whole PAOK organization is to blame for this with their poor planning. Starting rom the front office and ending with the fans. Some players know they won't be back, and it shows in their effort. For example Itandje who had a solid month or two has been very poor in the playoffs. He has realized that there is no future for him on the team. Even the goal of finishing 2nd and avoiding early European competition looks like a miracle at this point. I don't see how we can win our last two games in the playoffs. I don't even see how we can score any goals in those two games.
  17. The team needs a major overhaul. We need good player transfers in goal/defense/midfield and offense. Specially in midfield. Lot of dead wood needs to go as well. Hopefully Arnesen has a solid plan and sticks to it.
  18. Let's just win the cup and who cares if they call it a dynasty or not. Winning 3 cups in 5 years is a big accomplishment, considering that prior to that we have been cupless since 1961. GO Hawks.
  19. Klaus and Mak are doubtful but will travel to Athens.
  20. Tziolis, Noboa, Golasa, Salpi, Konstantinidis are out. Klaus and Mak have injuries, but might play. We stand nochance as Panathinaikos will want to mathematically secure the CL spot. My lineup: ------------------ Itandje ------------------- Skondras -- Costa -- Tzavellas - Rat Kitsiou --- Kace ---- Maduro --- Mak -------- Pereyra ------ Klaus ------------
  21. Blatter easily won the elections. FIFA president for 4 more years.
  22. Savvidis might have the patience, but I an guarantee you that the fans don't. Would not be surprised if by next May they will be calling for his head. Hopefully Savvidis has the balls to support him through the tough times.
  23. The problem is the teams that don't get a license can still play in Superleague/Football League and collect TV money on top of that. The only punishment is that they are not allowed to make certain player transfers. For example Panionios has been turning in a blank license application for the past 3 years and they are still in the Superleague.
  24. The K17 team defeated Asteras Tripoli in the semifinals of the K17 Championship and qualified to the final, where we will face Olympiakos. The game will take place on Saturday at Agrinio.
  25. Another team double this season. The men's handball team defeated Diomidis Argos 43:40 in double overtime and penalty shootout to claim the Greek championship to go along with the Greek Cup.
