Pirated Pirates:                                                                               4 3 3                                                              Rockafella Skank (scores)

You dudes are really asking for it. What does Greece havE? Good defence. How we gonna line up? Karnezis Torosidis - Siovas - Manolas - Sokratis - Retsos - Papadopoulos - Tzavellas - Staf

Lamprou just keep scoring at every match. He isdefinately ready. Chatzigiovanis and Bouzoukis I want to see more of them with a more decent team to decide. Limnios is ready for sure. Id like to see

While it is true most of us were hopefully leading up to the Italy game, we were quickly disappointed.  The loss themselves are not what did it, it is his lack of tactical awareness.  How does a head coach have a three week camp and not talk about the opponent? How he plans to play a slow cb at left back when he never played that position before against our toughest opponent. How the player told him that he didn't feel comfortable? Did they not practice this formation? This is why the tide turned against him.

Deano, Samaris and the two CB's are not who they used to be. Only international class player is Zeca, who is of origins elsewhere.

To be honest I’m tired of seeing Samaris be not effective. What exactly does he bring for us. He is just a tall guy who is slow and dosent offer much - starting to become the new Tziolis.

Samaris, and Tzioli$ are plodders, looking for the coins they dropped on the pitch. Not going to break a game open or save a situation. Siopis and Zeca play like someone is trying to steal their girlfriends and are right in the thick of the action. I prefer the latter two. Actually, I prefer a Latte!

There is this middle eastern chick that's a hottie, long legs, but it is evident that she has some facial hair in the moustache region. How do I offer friendly advise although, not offend I wonder..I hate seeing her not fulfill her true potential.

My suggested call up would be to get inspiration from the only person that can squeeze out a solution like no other, plays the big moments like Salpingitis or Gekas used to and score pressure goals in their heyday...you know who I'm talking about Rockafella baby!!

just be honest. she might initially be offended but because you were honest it will also build trust. double edged sword though if she's a dumby might just choose to be offended. high risk high reward, baby!

Albanis from AEK and some of the PAO youngsters (look at their goal today) would make our team 10 more mobile, skillful, faster and determined. Have some of the current guys for mongrel in the middle but really think we need to start going down this path soon instead of watching retarded football

Very true man. I’ve been wanting these players to be involved by now. I think it’s their time now. They are players who can play ball.

Two players currently in good form are Velios and Diamantakos.

https://www.contra.gr/podosfairo/diamantakos-o-punk-for-stin-ypiresia-tis-zankt-paoyli.7502302.html?utm_source=Contra&utm_medium=TopStories_article&utm_campaign=24MediaWidget&utm_term=Pos3

Even though Velios and Diamantakos were not too good when they started for the NT they should not be disregarded if their form is good.

Along with Mitroglou, Koulouris, Masouras, Fetfatzidis and Pavlidis we have some forward options. The problems are central and DM positions.

I really feel we need to start looking at two forwards, perhaps the above two could help but they did have opportunities not long ago and failed.

Here is a line up I would use

______________________Barkas

__________Siovas________Sokratis___Manolas

_______________Zeca______Galanopoulos

Fetfa________________Mantalos____________Koutris

_____________Donis
_____________________Koulouris



Mix and match, get in the mix: Pavlidis, Gianoulis, Natsos, Retsos, Limnios, Bouchlalakis, Kourbelis, Tsimikas, Masouras, Vasiliadis, Bouzoukis, Risvanis, Androutsos, Katranis, Kampetsis, Gianniotas, Mitroglou, Gentzoglou

statistically speaking we dominate the games we are supposed to dominate barring top 10 opposition. The problem is just that we lack finishing.

Our strikers are not the best and/or not in best form.

Goals win games.

So if we're going to go for Mitroglou we need to play attackers that can feed him properly. IE) Torosidis = crossing into him. Tsimikas = crossing into him. Fortounis = through ball splitting the defense.

If we're going to start Koulouris, crossing is out of the question because he's not good in the air. We need to focus on ground balls. Again, Fortounis = through ball splitting the defense. Fetfazidis = ground balls from the wings (cut backs), Tsimikas = pinpoint ground ball cutbacks.

Basically Koulours = cut backs or a split of the defense through centre.

Mitroglou = aerial balls.

Could also do a double striker diamond formation so we can get mitro in air and koulouris to bury the ground balls. Koulouris can also assist decently I think maybe. Mitroglou is left footed and Koulouris right footed so could work.

             Mitroglou Koulouris

Donis       Fortounis          Fetfa

                    Zeca 

Tsimikas Sok Man     Torosidis

              Vlacho

 

CM looks very thin with this not sure Zeca could do all the work just an idea.

or cater to your striker. If we play koulouris we must play fetfa.

Shame that holebas isn't on the team though as he's the finest crosser and has chem with Mitroglou. They're good friends german greek connection and party together in mykonos. Maybe they could come up with some plays while sipping Frappe.

Honestly doubt mentality has to do with this I think it's just we've lacked potency in the attacking third. The desire is there. You need to cater to your striker.

Good to hear from you. 

Id do this...

Vlachodimos

Retsos Manolas Sokratis

Donis Zeca Mantalos Tsimikas

Fetfatzidis Pavlidis Vrousai

3-4-3. Fetfatzidis can take players on and put some nice through balls on the floor. Tsimikas can whip in crosses as Pavlidis and Vrousai are great in the air. Zeca as the 6 and Mantalos as the 8. We need some creativity from deep. This formation can become 4-2-3-1 instantly if things need changing. Fetfatzidis as the 10 and Donis and Vrousai outwide. Both can do damage on the wings. Possession football with urgent pressing.

Going into the matches with Italy and Bosnia Van't Schip has to call up Mitroglou he is our best bet to score goals given the #9s we have at our disposal.

Apparently Triantafylopoulos and Hatzidiakos will get called up, what are everyone’s thoughts?

Just what we need....more CBs. Triantafylopoulos is a kreas....at least what I saw of him while at PAO. That would be a waste of a spot. I agree Hatzidiakos is quite a good player. Is Schipper going to move away from the Manolas-Papastathopoulos combination? I doubt it so it would be pointless adding to the list of CBs unless he just wants to see and evaluate them at the pregame preps.

If I was going for a 3 CB setup (I wouldn't do that unless there was time to prepare and there isn't) I would put Siovas behind Sokratis and Manolas as a aweeper so that he can cleanup and play the ball out. Retsos shouldn't be getting called up until he starts playing at his club....I imagine this is why Hatzidiakos is being summoned (as a bench option). I think Mantalos is the key if he is played in the middle of the pitch to make the transitional plays. I would go with Pavlidis up front as he is on fire where as the rest of our strikers have been underwhelming.

Do you mean Mantalos should play as a 6 or 10? In any case this is my prediction for the upcoming games:

Vlachodimos , Paschalakis, Barkas, Natsos, Bakakis, Manolas, Trianta, Sokratis, Siovas, Hatzidiakos, Tsimikas, Giannoulis, Zeca, Kourbelis, Bouchalakis, Samaris??, Mantalos, Vrousai, Fetfatzidis, Masouras, Pelkas??, Vellios, Pavlidis, Koulouris, Donis.

Thats 25 players. Question marks on Samaris because he hasn’t been playing much and Pelkas has an injury. Not sure if Mitroglou will get the call. Pavlidis and Koulouris have been scoring. Vellios is also in good form and Donis has started playing again. We can all agree Samaris hasn’t done much for the Ethniki and shouldn’t be involved anymore. Tachtsidis and Lykogiannis can be good options as they have been playing well and have had many matches.

Leave Samaris off the team. Van't Schip has to bring Mitroglou back in especially vs Italy who will not give us many opportunities, so if one opens up he would be best bet to score. 

Also siovas has to get some playing time in the back..

I would play him as a kind of 8 (because of our lack of proper transition in the midfield) in front of Zeca and another DM. He seems fit at the moment and is a hard working player with decent vision, speed and passing abilities who would make our game much faster, rather than depending our other slow, bumbling options (Taxidis, Samaris, etc). I know its not his regular position but we don't have anyone else really who can do this. Zeca and his partner can do most of the dirty work and he would concentrate on transitioning the play which is what has been lacking most in the NT play.

I agree. I forgot to add Bouzoukis because I read somewhere he could be involved in the upcoming matches. Quality player.
