we play bosnia in sarajevo on friday night in a crucial world cup qualifier, the squad is as follows: Goalkeepers: Orestis Karnezis (Panathinaikos), Juri Lodigin (Xanthi), Michalis Sifakis (Charleroi).Defenders: Vassilis Torosidis (AS Roma), Loukas Vyntra (Levante), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Werder Bremen), Avraam Papadopoulos (Olympiakos), Costas Manolas (Olympiakos), Stelios Malezas (Fortuna Dusseldorf), Giorgos Tzavelas (Monaco).Midfielders: Alexandros Tziolis (APOEL), Yiannis Maniatis (Olympiakos), Jose Holebas (Olympiakos), Costas Katsouranis (PAOK), Giorgos Karagounis (Fulham), Panagiotis Kone (Bologna), Panagiotis Tachtsidis (AS Roma), Costas Fortounis (Kaiserslautern), Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (Bologna).Forwards: Dimitris Salpingidis (PAOK), Georgios Samaras (Celtic), Costas Mitroglou (Olympiakos), Fanis Gekas (Akhisar Belediyespor).k paps is still out injured, and no place for ninis and fetfa who have hardly featured for their clubs. i'd be thrilled with a draw here, any thoughts??

honestly,  between karnezi and sifaki we have the gk position covered sufficiently, why not give the kid a chance to train and prove himself.  he is 22 and has actually had a pretty decent year with xanthi.  although born in russia, he has been in greece since childhood and has made a handful of appearances for the youth side.  who else would really be called in that 3rd GK spot?  another youngster with limited experience.....so why not give him the exposure, see how he reacts. 

 

other than him,  no real questionable calls.  ninis and fetfa havent been playing regularly (or really at all), so i think santos is right in not calling them up. k. pap will definitely be missed.

 

this is a very important game. assuming slovakia beat lithuania at home, we really need at least a point here to keep the advantage.  bosnia have some great players, so this will probably be the most difficult match of the group.

shocking line ups, going for a draw, malezas has been brilliant yet avraam is recalled despite hardly playing 4-5-1 with sammy up on his own and holebas left mid and tziolis kats and kara in the middle no tachtidis no fortounis no gekas and no kone, no adventure shown by santos. :tdown:

Why do they always wait until the tzivi is up the popo? The lack of skill is evident, once again. Years in attempting to make a team but no improvements.

 I disagree file. Samaras is the whole team today. Karnezis saves a penalty, and we can't even clear the ball? Lazy!

I don't wonder. There is one good player on the field for us right now, and it's Giorgos Samaras. Why is Karagounis on the team, much less starting? If we aren't in Brazil, FIRE SANTOS!
