  1. Jovanovich is a way better manager than Poyet. The job he did with PAO was remarkable. If only EPO got rid of Poyet before playoffs when he was talking about the Ireland job, his assistant allegedly not being paid and other stupidities instead of focusing on us qualifying. Had they appointed Jovanovich we would have qualified! When the group stage draw was announced I said if Greece made it we would get out of that group as the Turks & Czechs were definitely beatable and having Portugal in the last match day would be a huge advantage as they would most certainly be qualified and rest their best players. Well Georgia beat 🇵🇹 yesterday who sat Fernandes, Silva, Leao and others. I am pissed Poyet fd us up and pissed at a few of our key players who played terribly vs Georgia and now they are playing in the round of 16! What a kick in the nuts!!
  2. He is a good manager much better than JVS & Poyet. If only we had him at the helm for Euro qualification I believe he would have got us in. Now World Cup qualification will be a tall task. Good luck to him.
  3. Tzolis was fantastic especially vs Germany he was all over the pitch. Should have scored but Neur made a great save. If the moron Poyet played him vs Georgia we would be at the Euros.
  4. Very disappointing Greece did not qualify and now we have to play a friendly vs Germany in their country.
  5. He started of well and got us the NL top spot but he failed miserably when it counted the most vs Georgia. Poyet was at the helm for the most disappointing loss in Ethniki history! He can go coach some loser English team in a lower division.
  6. For sure he could have lost the last match to France or both too Holland. It’s great that we tied France but when you have one game to beat Georgia to go to the Euros you have to win it end of story! Bakasetas has been much better under Poyet but did he even break a sweat last game I didn’t see it. Also taking a pen is what he excels at and he hit one of the worst penalties. Mantalos time is up too I think he should retire even though he was better than Bakasetas & Kourbelis vs Georgia. That midfield was crap until Siopis came in and made things happen. Still why did Poyet not play Konstantelias as the 10 instead of throwing him on the wing were he we did not touch the ball for long periods of time? We are talking about fing Georgia here not France or Spain. Let him go and take them on with his dribbling and creativity. Also no Tzolis wtf?? He is not as good as Pelkas? No Douvikas but Giakoumakis plays? Also subbing out Ioanidis for Giakoumakis I did not like for looming penalties and we saw what happened. No Pavlidis in either match who leads Dutch league in goals? Enough of all these clowns since Santos left! This is the most disappointing loss in our history! Things have to change!
  7. He should have taken it seeing how obsessed he is with Ireland recently. They were apparently willing to give Poyet a 5yr contract? He did some positive things for Greece but he was unable to beat Georgia after having months to prepare for this fixture. It is a huge failure, the most disappointing loss I can ever remember since watching the Ethniki. Exo Poyet!
  8. I’m hearing Jovanovich, Garcia & Sampoli in the conversation. The last two should be no where near the Ethniki. Jovanovich could work to build something from near scratch as he did at PAO. He speaks Greek and knows Greek football well. I would prefer a Greek coach. I wanted Donis prior to Poyet being hired but I do not think he’s interested. Anyways it’s hard to think about that now with our Euro qualification down the drain.
  9. Watched the game and Poland did not register a SOG for 120 minutes. Wales were the much better side for the whole match and we’re going for the win. Polands performance was worse than ours and Georgia but their penalties were excellent and well taken.
  10. Big failure! I said it come out hard and determined in the first 20mins like we did vs Kazakhstan and the game would be over. Poyet fed it up and his subs were late and he only decided to make a change to the struggling midfield only when Kourbelis got injured? He brought on Konstantelias but he should have come on at half time Pelkas offered nothing. Where was Tzolis?? how I miss the days of Otto & Santos when they knew how to read the game and adjust. Poyet pulled a JVS yesterday and was scared to take the match to Georgia!
  11. Greece have the players to go to tournaments the problem is the last few managers leave them off the squad or force them into early retirement!
  12. Spot on Dean everything you said! Greece had to score 1 goal and failed to do so to win this match its Georgia an average country but definitely not France or Holland to be afraid of. Our defence was fine but Poyet did not react in time too address the midfield until Kourbelis got injured then when Siopis came on we were much better. He had to make changes right at Halftime! No minutes for Tzolis what a joke! No Douvikas? Fortounis not good enough to play in this midfield? Left out of the loop because AEK have major control over EPO and Poyet. Tzavellas WTF is he doing there I thought he retired? Plus he gets a red card on sideline. One game vs Georgia. With Otto or Santos it would have been a done deal. Poyet failed we should be at Euros. Now he can go take some job in crappy England or the Ireland NT.
  13. We should have come out with more urgency we have Georgia to much respect like they are France or Spain. Kevartsvillia had a few runs at us but he did not hit the target with any shots and our backs and Masouras did a good job containing him. I think Poyet should have kept Ionanidis in with penalties looming. Bakasetas pen was his worst ever with the NT he usually smashes them in. Also I would have liked to see Poyet take a chance and sub Paschalakis in as he is a good penalty stopper.
  14. I agree with you on Tsimikas what a horrible performance. Many of his crosses were pathetic except one to Ioanidis who could not get a head on too. Gave the ball away cheaply as well. Vlachodimos I thought would save one of those pens, very disappointing.
  15. Poyet has done a good job overall but today he messed it up and we could have used Fortounis cutting edge in the midfield. We came out strong vs France best team in the world and score 2 goals. This game vs an average team our team was timid from the start not like last game we’re they came out so strong. Bakasetas was playing to deep to give passes to the strikers. In the penalties it’s 50/50 but Bakasetas hits one of the worst penalties ever and Giakoumakis misses the target. We lose with Kvaratskhelia not even taking a penalty.
  16. Total crap match from us and Georgia! I am speechless we could not score a goal vs Georgia. We even scored in both games in wcup qualifiers with JVS at the helm. Un f info real.
