  1. Boys, I read some jouno's quote a while back that when P Kone first came into the national team environment, he was infact touted as 'the new Karagounis!' That tells me that he was touted as a DM. Would that read correct to others? If so, play him there next match, I'm not crazy about him at AM..

  2. Would Samaras holding at CF, and Fetfa as his AM, would that increase our flair? Faroes are probably more physical than many asian teams too. Faroes would do quite afew top 100 teams. Not to be under-estimated. My Thio ordered a salad and pita with our yeeroses recently. I think that's like double-dipping. The yeeros has salad, and pita. It probably isn't something I can take away as food for thought, especially if I'm to impress a date, especially of another culture know what I mean na poume?

    Also, No chiili sauce with yeeros, as No tzatziki with beritos - my advise to singles.   

  3. Top summary 1789. It would depend on what formation Sergio wanted to settle on too. If he opts for 4231, and Kone is a second stricker, he doesn't fit this model, he is an AM is this the place for him?

    In a 352 formation, Kyriakos, Manolas and Sokratis have it covered at the back, is Toro as attacking as Holebas and how are those crosses in? In the world cup, could anyone else have scored the Samaris goal the way he did. Samaris to me is an enigma, where is his best position?? He is energetic, would it be fair to say he is not technically as gifted on a consistant basis. Do we need more of Tachtsidis, Fortounis, Ninis and Klonaridis and less of Maniatis, Samaris, Kone, Lazo and the Kats-man??

    What a blow that Mantalos is out injured. Give us a formation and a team based on your summation.



  4. Lemon juice and tzatziki are the greatest inventions af all time, or close to it. Up there with zembekiko music. As I flick my kompoloi (worry beads), thio Stratos reckons Markarian will initially not be given absolute free reign on squad and team selections. Do we think he will, or will there be dodgy selections during his time, which has started? And that patates are not good for cholesterol, or my waiste-line re paithia!


  5. Lads, I would like to see Hellas adopt a policy of forget politics and re-generate the team every world cup cycle - standard. The majority of the player squad should be around 25, or younger, not all players. It is way overdue to do this infact in Faroe Is. match, not necessarily from Poland match. No  Vyntra, Moras, Katsouranis, Salpingitis. At the very latest, after the euro qualifiers to promote Sokratis to captain. This may mean the end of playing Torotsidis, even if this is a backward step initially. Just an opinion. Need to have Sokratis well respected if this was to happen. That means not too many older guys in the squad. Leave Holebas and Samaras in the team environment though, need the balance.

    I don't know if I'm a real fan of the chips in the yeeros. Its very overwhelming. 

  6. We should not throw in this a league tripe, I agree cause we would also put our houses on them teams losing to the superior European teams, every time..There is no way known Greece would lose to Faroes at home-Unthinkable!! Wanderers to beat billionare oil shieks Al Hilal, it would cause mass hysteria, will never happen!


    With our overflowing pride with expectation, we rarely ever get to the next level. A humble approach to this Faroes game would ensure Greece plays at their best. And hopefully win 3-0 We'll see.

    Friends, we barrack for the same team don't forget.

  7. Ella bro lets get serious for a minute, who will Socceroos face in world cup semi to get into the world cup final in Russia, will Greece finally fulfil its potential? It will be a close final against one of Germany, Argentina, Columbia, Brazil or that basket case France... Live the lie/ I mean dream!

  8. I love watching Greece and Australia for that matter in footy. An honesty question to anyone interested, who would win if they played each other next month at, say, aami park in Melbourne? Would Olympiacos or Paok defeat Melbourne Victory or say, Sydney FC? Love to see these matches. 

    Let me say this, Ange P has got the Aussies thinking they can take on anyone. They will walk over hot coals for him, wow.

    Greece need team chemistry and an excellent playing style similar to Socceroos. A high line and playing players that have big motors, not sit back players.

    It was the same story, where to find players, its a small talent pool. Identification of players has unearthed at least four players for every position for Socceroos. Greece can do exactly the same. A champion team can defeat a team of champions. I hope both national teams can achieve many rewards in future.

    Greece under-estimated Faroe Islands. A great team would not under-estimate a Germany or a Brazil, they must treat Faroe Islands or American Samoa in the same way. The fact that they are not playing fulltime pro's proved again that is not the be all and end all, a big heart with talent is, along with wearing the national jersey. Greece must humble itself and Always do their best, reguardless of who they will face. Or again they will be humbled.

  9. I have confidence in our new National Team coach, Markarian. For the life of me though, how does he justify taking off our Best player in Fetfa, and bring on Katsouranis. The match was on the line, I actually dropped my yeeros on my skinny jeans! It is a long campaign til Russia, therefore, he will prove to be a good coach. Lets use the rest of the matches in this Euro campaign for familiarity and team chemistry, we sure need it. The pyrates need minimum of five matches together to start playing serious footy I would think, under a new system-again. 

  10. There has to be some continuity with team selections, not the circus Ranieri was parading, given the injuries too. Lets go back to world cup. Samaras was cf, so he must be next game. Mitro can sit on the bench, he will fire, has done it before in his National team, na poume!

    Fetfa is our Ronaldo, lets Not beat around the bush. Need to have a creative Midfield, rest of team is set. Karnezis, Toro, Manolas, Sokratis Pap, Holebas, Kyriakos Pap, P Tachtsidis, try Lazaros Christo, G Fetfa, G Samaras and P Kone. Like to see Aravidis, Mitro and Gianniotas as part of the bench. This team should start resembling the team that will go to Russia. Minimal 30+ year olds from this match. Cheers boythes!!
