  1. It was a very good game to watch but heart breaking for me to watch us give up these goals, credit to Aguibou Camara on Olympiakos's opener, but the off side attempt by Vranjes on El Arabi was amateurish, on such a stage... As for Mantalos, was much better in this game and in the season for us in general than anything we saw with the Ethniki, my only criticism of him lately is, he has been very wasteful in front of goal. This is def something for AEK to build on though and hopefully Meli realizes (again) that we need a better defense
  2. Our horrible defense gifted Olympiakos another win over us... We played well for the most part, sadly Zuber and Garcia went missing but the other guys really rallied, just a shame we have them 2 goals.
  3. To say Pelkas is better than Bakasetas is simply ridiculous IMO, both are average, Bakasetas has had so many chances to prove his worth and has come up with some ok momemts, the Sweden win the biggest and best of the lot. Pelkas has been poor with the Ethniki and at club level, Baka also gets the edge, just cause Pelkas runs faster doesn’t make him better.
  4. Unpopular opinion - for me Pavlidis has been a huge let down after a promising start to the Ethniki, the amount of turn overs he produces is incredible. IMO Fetftazidis (30 yo) would offer so much more than Pavlidis who only really has a finish on him, his passing is terrible, hold up play very poor and I think hurting us more than helping.
  5. Another botched game, poor starting 11 when you have Alexandropoulos, Saliakias and Tzolis on the bench with plenty of gas to burn but no lets play the gassed guys who struggle to break down these teams... no balls no urgency and the same mistakes as usual - JVS has to go
  6. Pesta @Greek Style Geessss guys, there are replacements out there as there always has been in football. Better than poor tactical measures every game and excluding our best
  7. Ive always asked, can he learn from his mistakes, and the answer is he can't and that's what it comes down to
  8. My thoughts to that - My thoughts on this, One of the reasons I was for JVS initially was the style of play he HAD us playing but file, I really feel he has fallen back from this advancement, look at nearly all our games this campaign, its been shambles... The only time we have played ball was in the last 30 mins vs Sweden in Athens and the first half in Sweden, we have shown so little outside of that and it got us nowhere but for the lucky win over Georgia. For the most part we have almost expected the win to happen without really playing any nice football, the exciting football was played was when he came in and we played wingers like Limnios and had Fortounis in the middle but now he is set on Bakasetas who slows that dynamic down too. We got some good talent but he is making a meal of that too, taking off Masouras today was a bad move, starting Pavlidis who has been pretty poor of late with his play... I am just seen constant mistakes and poor management, I was defending him for some time too but all I am seen is mix and matching players, and poor tactics with Tsimikas,Giannoulis, Alexandropoulos, Bouchalakis, Baka, Pav, Androutsos etc... Today for me was the icing on the cake, ive had enough of the mistakes.
  9. Mavropanos has just been confirmed out of commission for these matches…
  10. Great result from the lads!
  11. Let’s see what JVS does… have a bad feeling he will start Stafylidis in central defence which of course would be a disaster
  12. He should be ok but we should know soon. Big test v an in form Aris coming up. Our attack is ok, our defence is still a big concern, in the last two games with Atromitos and Volos we were exposed early on, Volos was actually very unlucky to not open the scoring which could have changed things. Good test v Aris and keen to see if Giannikis keeps Mitoglou as a starter and Tzavellas on bench
  13. El Arabi had a good chance not long ago now Frankfurt starting to take some control 22nd min
  14. Im with you guys on the Siovas incident, he wasn’t been malicious at all and just how some experience can help guys like Svarnas (who let’s face it, could def learn a thing or two but should never have been there also) Siopis was simply dumped after that, JVS could have spoken with him instead of just dumping him, that’s what good people management is
  15. He didn’t hold his own for the Ethniki in his latter games mate, he was horrible and we actually lost games because the guy couldn’t make accurate passes, he along with some others had the chance to really do something special after 2014 and it was an appalling failure. His game deteriorated big time sadly
  16. Sadly Galanopoulos won’t be on the field for some time and when he is back we have to hope he does not get another injury
