  1. That interviewer talks over Dimitri all the time.I wanted to throw a baklava at him. Siovas is a very good CB that Ethniki need.
  2. A friendly against Turkey? Is that like a friendly between Israel and palestine or Serbia and Bosnia? Someone has a sense of humour at the EPO.
  3. In an era where the Ethniki have a wealth of quality LB's, not realy that critical. More importantly, can newly appointed Zagorakis entice Kats out of retirement for one last throw of the dice?
  4. After the Georgia match, I personally would change that lineup I had and apparently JVS is getting a technical director and the name escapes me atm. Kyriakos Pap and Tzavellas are too slow and do not press higher up, I would have Siovas back in. Bouchalakis is abit too limited as the no.8 as well. Siopis shows a big motor and could work in that role. Bakasetas seems like a square peg trying to get into a round hole in that team. Pavlidis has been playing mainly on the wing and GG is in great form as Striker for his club. Boyz...4 2 3 1
  5. Hatzi is quality, just that Tzavella has been very effective. Either gate 7 pod or Hellas pod made mention of Baldock going through the passport stage right now and will become available. Both podcasts are gold with the different accents as well..lol.
  6. Now that Zagorakis (legend) is in charge at the EPO, Sokratis and Manolas will make themselves available, and I understand that JVS requested their services already. I had agreed with the fact a while back, that JVS took the correct course of action and had distanced the team from Sokratis, Manolas and for that matter Siovas for a time. This helped with a reset for the Ethniki, right throughout the Euro tournament whereby the boys ultimately failed and a continuation into the early part of this WCQ campaign. I am a fan of the three CB's coming back into the fold now as well. Siovas i
  7. JVS had included Pavlidis, who scored two in the friendly, moved Bakasetas back from leading the line, brought in Giannoulis, brought in Fortounis, even though on the wing, could still cut back toward the middle of the field and started Tzolis on the right. The only move I thought was not great was to start Bakakis who often gets turned around by the opposing attackers. Like to of seen Androutsos there. The players are still having a hectic time trying to score from open play. Against Spain it was a fortunate penalty, and against Georgey, it was an own goal to our benefit. What does
  8. Elections in the Greek EPO I believe on 28 March, Grammenos could get ousted. One rumour has it that Manolas and Sokratis will not play unless Grammenos gets replaced. It has been said JVS had invited them to be included in the Ethniki Squad but they chose to be unavailable for now.
  9. I did what I said I would do if we don't lose. I ran around the block in my birthday suit. No-one seemed to worry about it. Imagine Fortounis got on, we may have jagged another. Go the JVS Pirates!!
  10. My Ethniki patriotic friend, you also woke up with a supermodel and I know because I saw yoos through the blinds with a telescope. Ha, so there!
  11. Hellas 2 Spain 1 Kiriakos and Mavro are good enough with Svarnas and Turkey's competition's best CB Tzavellas as back up at CB for the Ethniki.
  12. How good is that DM? He is Brillante infact. Team in the top 5 with a match in hand after 10 rounds, looks like promotion is beckoning.
  13. We must be saved by Baldock and Vasiliadis for that matter.
  14. Giannoulis and Hatimzidiakos are like Vouyouklaki and Papmihail..they are excellent.
  15. Pavlidis is finding form again, lets hope he is firing next March as well. Bakasetas is Not a no.10 he is a more physical hold the opposition off the ball kind of second striker or a no.9 Its not even Baka's fault that JVS and his assistants don't see this as being the case and they play him in the more creative role of the no.10. May as well not start Baka or play him as a striker, he has energy and won't just sit up front catching a cold either.
  16. Deano, Mantalos and Fortounis can both play midfield, one further back from the other. Mantalo can play as a CM, he is speedy & creative, he can't be any worse than when he is at LW.
  17. 25 March, Aspasia said we have a parelasi, 'to Oxi'
  18. France, England, Belgium, Spain, Germany Greece. Use the easier matches to try different combinations and to blood youngsters at this level.
  19. Need a CM or no.8 that can play, on the planet there has to be someone capable. Might have to be from any one of these: Bouzoukis, Mantalos, Pelkas or Vasiliadis. If Baka has a motor he might do it, he plays better more centrally.
  20. Good to read in another thread that JVS is back to full health and did an interview recently as well. WCQ will roll around next. he will need to play: with one DM at any one time on the pitch; a true LW in that position; Fortounis at AM and perhaps Captain; a true RB in that position; Tzavellas, Bouchalakis and Bakasetas got many opportunities, as a result of those, it was evident that they did not improve the team. Time to integrate Galanopoulos, Vasiliadis, as well as Mavropanos into the squad for the next phase.
  21. I hope he fully recovers as health is far more important.
  22. We have to put up with the stubbornesd till around June, then JVS will fal on his sword. All the best. These managers are boneheads, can't they see theif shortfalls b4 they get the arse and its too late?.. Didn't see him as this proud at first.
  23. I had heard women back in the day comment like 'I want Katsouranis to father my child!' I thought it was odd of my ex girlfriend at the time.
