  1. Okay I can see he is determined to make those changes he thinks necessary. Somehow my gut feeling tells me it is no use (although my premonitions have been always bad since 2014). Lets hope I am in the wrong.
  2. Dont misunderstand me guys, this Schip team looks okay but somehow they cant achieve results. We lost again.
  3. Paschalakis, Bakasetas, and Giannoulis (a fullback) when we would have had to score. Another goody goody performance and another loss. Typical of Van T Schip.
  4. This guy replaced Masouras with Giannoulis when Liechtenstein scored an equalizer (and before that goal he wanted to sub Limnios on) but you are right, this guy wants to enforce change. Lets hope we will see some development.
  5. I guess this guy will be sacked after some more disastrous results and eight or ten months. Then EPO will perhaps try to find a proper head coach.
  6. EPO did spend a lot of time to secure his services but our idiotic head coaches often chose nobodies like Barkas and Paschalakis in the last year. Seriously, Anastasiadis and van Schip ought to be certified. (Do you remember when Ranieri chose Mantalos instead of Maniatis?)
  7. Now thats some good news. I think Vlachodimos should be our standard keeper. But perhaps Van Schip will go now with Dioudis or Paschalakis.
  8. He played already some games in 2015 for the Ethniki. He has had a great season so far, six goals in nine games and scored a brace last Saturday (end result was 3-3). He would have deserved a call up IMO.
  9. What a great display!!! Olympiacos is our only one competitive team in Europe. Martins is another miracle worker like Santos. Last year they sent Milan out of Europa League with a beautiful 3-1 win, and now they played a draw with Tottenham, a team that was finalist in the Champions League.
  10. At this age, Tziolis had been playing in Saudi Arabia for two years or so. Makos (who was mentioned in one of the earlier posts) has given up practically his career, he plays now for a third league team at 32! Samaras retired at the age of 33. Charisteas did the same. Avraam was effectively destroyed by that injury against Poland at Euro 2012. He relied on his pace, and he has been considerably slower since then. But he put up a good fight against Serbia in 2014 (his last Ethniki game). If only some of our talents (Kyrgiakos Samaras) and "talents" (Ninis Koutsianikoulis) would have had his tenacity.
  11. Probably these are deep waters for them.
  12. A Miraculous Comeback After playing for a bunch of unglamorous Asian and Australian teams, in January Avraam managed to return to Olympiacos. He played two league games last spring. This year, however, he started against Plzen (was subbed off because a lesser injury) AND is in the Champions League squad while Koutris is not! He remained on the bench last week in the league game against Volos (alongside Torosidis and Bouchalakis). Does that mean he is still somehow in the plans of Pedro Martins? It is really astonishing and testifies to his doggedness and resiliency that he managed to return to a top Greek team. Will he possibly even play in the Champions League?
  13. A lot of people criticized Katsouranis back then and wanted younger players in the squad. Some of them already deleted themselves from this forum but I guess some of their posts could be found even now. Gekas, Vyntra and Tziolis also had their haters but Katsouranis literally was to blame for everything. And of course Santos who always chose his favorite mummies, created a boring defensive team that was painful to watch and thwarted the development of terrific talents like Nines/Tachtsidis/Fetfatzidis etc. etc.
  14. Performance of our guys in this rezili: Barkas 0 - Bakakis 5, Manolas 5.5, Papastathopoulos 6, Tsimikas 5 - Samaris 4, Vrousai 5, Bouchalakis 4.5 (Zeca 5.5) - Masouras 6 (Giannoulis 0), Koulouris 5, Fetfatzidis 5.5 (Pavlidis 4). Another lacklustre production from the Ethniki. Actually, they wernt THAT bad, they created a couple of chances and Sokratis did seem to be frustrated after the equalizer of Liechtenstein. Samaris was very average though, and a sloppy pass by him led to the Salanovic goal. On Van Schip (both games): His starting elevens were mostly quite good yet the coach made strange decisions. Zeca played half an hour in these two games while Bouchalakis Kourbelis Samaris were in the starting XI at least on one occasion. Mitroglou was not called up although he is obviously in good form (2 goals in 2 matches). Also Donis wasnt picked. They scored our goals in the away game against Liechtenstein. Vlachodimos (Benfica keeper) was benched in favor of Barkas. These coaches are literally more stupid than Skibbe. Ange A and Van Schip. This was the FIFTH occasion Vlachodimos sat on the bench out of the last NINE games! Clueless idiotic coaches have chosen the likes of Barkas and Paschalakis (no joke) again and again. One of our best players has served as a backup keeper, this is mind blowing!
  15. Okay I agree with everybody its not the coach, or at least not only him. Dean97: I guess Sokratis wanted to win the game. In the dying minutes, he ran like hell and gave some great passes. As usual, Masouras Bakakis Koulouris and the likes were useless. Sokratis and Zeca couldnt do it alone. Dont you think MITROGLOU would have scored at least ONE goal??? Or even a brace? Dont you think SKIBBE would have called up Mitroglou after he scored two goals in perhaps twenty-five minutes in Eredivisie (not in the "Super" League)?
  16. You are right but I regret too that they hired this coach. His CV is laughable. He was assistant coach of some unglamorous teams... even Skibbe was assistant Voeller at the German national team between 2000-2004 and he was the real coach because Voeller had not a licence. Markarian was successful with Panathinaikos, Ranieri was famous etc. etc. Jong Ajax assistant, Guadalajara, etc. etc. Its hilarious. As if Spain would hire Nioplias as head coach LOL
  17. Yes you are right I guess, everybody is to blame, especially the players. Papastathopoulos did want to score at the end that should be said IMO. And Bakakis couldnt got him LOL what a bunch of idiots...
  18. Sack Van Schip!!!!!!! EPO leaders money is under your pillows and mattresses... Bring it out and hire a proper coach!!!!! Rehhagel wasnt a cheap solution but their choice paid dividends...
  19. Attacking style does mean we get some great displays and proper results. Even Skibbe would have won this game.
  20. Samaris cannot deliver a proper cross... why is he even on the pitch?? Where is Limnios??? Who is Giannoulis?
  21. Samaris is a clown... attacking style of play, eh? Schip can go to hell. Why CAN they score on counter attack? This was our trademark. Score a second goal somehow!!!!! Pls players!!!
