  1. If we beat Kazakhstan and if Georgia defeat Lux, then we play the final away to Georgia correct?
  2. Not watching but positive news our young guns are firing. Need them desperately to help create offence especially from midfield. NZ not the strongest opponent. Really hope Poyet goes with similar lineup vs France.
  3. If this is true it's very unfortunate timing is not good. I thought Poyet was going to lead us into the Euros hope he stays I guess would depend on who he replacement would be.
  4. I thought maybe they were good enough without but honestly I don't think so, the NT needs to get Fortounis back in now in time for the playoffs he is looking good. There is no one on the team with his skill level in that position. We keep leaning on average guys like Mantalos and Kourbelis etc. Midfield is not threatening and not providing forwards the best service. Greece can get in but will struggle to get results if what we seen against Holland and France is proof. They are in the game but can't sniff a goal and ultimately lose.
  5. I'm not even that bothered really (mainly because of the playoff mind you). To be honest I always expected to come 3rd here. Greece have been steadily improving. I think a draw would have been the more correct result today but when you try to beat a big nation like Holland you can't leave it to referee and VAR good luck. Needs to be decisive. It was always a long shot in this group and they made a decent account of themselves overall having us believing once again. They just need to get in any way they can. Look at the playoff path it's amazing for us. Hopefully play decent and raise the rank for WC qualifying pots. Hard to qualify coming from where Greece was.
  6. 0 goals for two matches what's to complain about guys? Not good enough. World class defence at the back for Holland and it showed apparently.
  7. What a flop. Screw it. Hopefully the playoff now. This was always a long shot very tough group.
  8. The Dutch players height advantage is about the only difference I've seen. Gotta watch Siopis on that yellow too he is foul happy I like his hustle though.
  9. It's great to have hopes raised heading into difficult matches such as this. At least we go there with belief we can get a result. Still, if they don't manage a win or even a draw that we don't get too down. The team has come a long way it looks like very quickly but Dutch NT even without appearing at their strongest do we really know? Obviously a huge match for them as they at home as they must see us now as their most direct opponent for 2nd place.
  10. At work will try and watch second half but 0-0 this is a great position after first half!
  11. Impressive performance. Greece hungry for the ball, very fit and closing down. Lots of nice passing. I am getting a vibe from this team now something is special is happening. And Bakasetas has turned into an absolute stud. The team has a real leader and star in him who has an impressive shot always dangerous. I don't see any reason why this Greece team can't take on Holland for second spot.
  12. It's a big loss. Could unsettle the team. Is he out for sure?
  13. Any of the current or coming players have a chance at really breaking out and being a star player? There is lots of talent, and some of real quality on top clubs, but do we have a star in the making is what I'm wondering. I'm surprised all these years Greece hasn't produced anyone of that calibre.
  14. Thank you for clarifying guys. Ok it's looking not so bad really. 2 matches at home with chance to qualify for the Euros?? I take that everyday. Heck we can bypass qualifying altogether. And opponent is not a major European side. A great opportunity to get back in and raise our ranking before WC 2026 draw. Hopefully they get it done.
  15. What do you mean 1st match. How many playoff matches. It is home/away legs?
  16. What is the potential breakdown for our possible opponent and how is home/away determined. Regarding the NL playoff.
  17. Greece need to get back into the major tournaments. Starting with Euro. Watching World Cup would be so much more exciting Greece were in it I miss that run of qualifying we had... It's been too damn long.
  18. Wow, amazing scenes. The opening ceremonies was so well done. I almost can't believe it's real! The stadium is beautiful. Bravo Aekara!!!
  19. ^^^ Yes we will definitely battle for 2nd but I don't have us beating out Holland. It is possible and we will push them but I wouldn't bet myself. I'm just not personally optimistic on that. The Nations League route is path of least resistance/best odds now. Hopefully by next draw Greece can continue to clean up their ranking - pot 4 was never favourable. Ireland in there as well and Greece 4th? It's probably the toughest group in the Euro imo.
  20. Oh wow. Our run our decent draws is over. This is a brutal draw. They must qualify now via the Nations League route!
  21. Any updates? Haven't seen/read much new.
  22. This is nonsense you sort this out after the game. How can you make determinations like this in the moment.
