  1. Fortounis being benched hard to understand no playmakers out there. Limnios needs to play on defense and he can make his runs where he can. So far not fan of Bakasetas dont see what the hype is I would have played bouchalakis. Masouras and tsioles like to see them on wing. Played mediocre whole game and subs should have come sooner Slovenia sucks..

  2. The fact he did this  means he actually has control of this team not EPO so good sign, Obviously I want our two best center backs to play but if they have an attitude problem better give new blood a chance.. we lost to Armenia and copped 3 goals so I'm not worried we should try new players.

  3. Van Schip stated the real problem in one of his interviews " Players play for Greece to visit family" nobody takes this team seriously except a few players and it shows on the pitch, no urgency no heart. The lack of professionalism is ridiculous reminds me of when players from rival teams PAO vs Oly etc  wouldn't like each other and would effect result and player selections until Otto came in... 


    I dont trust EPO they are so corrupt in general and the players must know it. That is why players are never developed asits a business... but if we miss enough tournaments maybe we will see a change when they money stops coming in.  

  4. I think the mistake was trying to make this team play a possession game when its not possible. Van Schip hasen't been coaching long enough to change the football culture. Also a lot of our players struggle with one touch soccer so its going to take time. I think for us we should have adopted a counter attacking style where we absorb a little pressure and quickly transition as this creates space that we just cant do with our current midfield. Sitting Tsimikas was bad choice as he can create chances on the wing. Also Koulouris had zero ball service so cant blame him...  


    I would have even played Koutris opposite to Tsimikas and see if that would work as Torosides is non factor nowadays. Bottom line Greece is not a place that develops players currently so why are we surprised?

  5. I don't subscribe to lack of talent excuse vs teams like Finland and Armenia. You have to adjust your tactics depending on the opposition unless your a world class team, which we  are not currently. We don't defend well... and there is no reason for that given we are very deep defensively in my opinion.  We have to play to our strengths which is defend well and build on counter...

  6. Ah vre Jimmy we have mobsters running the league and controlling EPO... but that has nothing to do with it we can still have professional federation.... It starts at top players don't have proper environment to play it will effect results, period. 

  7. I forgot about this found it on Wikipedia....



    2015 Greek football scandal[edit]

    The 2015 Greek football scandal emerged on 6 April 2015 when prosecutor Aristidis Korreas' 173-page work was revealed. Telephone tapping operated by the National Intelligence Service of Greece since 2011 has played a significant role in the case.[19] According to the prosecutor's conclusion, Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis along with HFF members Theodoros Kouridis and Georgios Sarris, were suspected of directing a criminal organization since 2011. The goal behind their scheme was allegedly to "absolutely control Greek football's fate by the methods of blackmailing and fraud",[20][21][22][23][24][25] exploiting the self-governing ("autonomy") status of national football federations promoted by FIFA and UEFA.

    In 2016, a temporary administration was placed by FIFA and UEFA due to the scandal.

    On 28 December 2017 an envelop with a bullet was sent to the new president Evangelos Grammenos.[26]

    After an attack to a Greek referee (Thanasis Tzilos) in December 2018, the Greek government announced its intension for the creation of a football anti-terrorist unit. According to the Greek Police, the National Intelligence Service and the case file, all the persons involved in the attack were employees of Evangelos Marinakis.[27]
