Other Teams/Leagues Discussion


Recommended Posts

Superleague will discuss on Monday the proposed format change for the upcoming Superleague season. The leading proposal is to go for an 18-team league. This would mean nobody will be relegated and 4 teams from Superleague 2 will be promoted. 

Along with this year's Greek Cup final, this is another good joke concerning Greek football.

@Blackhawk can you please start a new game thread for Xanthi's road trip to Olympiakos this weekend since we own Xanthi? ?

Can we just get a new subforum made that's exclusively for these two? Yeesh

What's interesting to me is the fact Olympiakos clearly has the most to lose by a Grexit. They are the only ones raking in E20+ million annually on the Champions League market pool.   For 9/14 teams

Let me also guess - 18 teams PLUS a play-off, right? Make sure our season lasts for 11 months at a time.

Apparently the Olympiakos camp want to retain the current 14-team/Playoffs format, while the AEK/Panathinaikos/PAOK camp want to proceed with some kind of restructuring for at least one season and then return back to the 14-team format.

"18 teams", lets make the league less competitive, as that equals more revenue. Should just go to 12 teams or 10 with four rounds.

Superleague voted to stay with 14 teams. EPO might have other ideas.

Xanthi and Apollon Smyrni still have to play for the second SL spot. Both teams have no players.

Hmmm...

Can't imagine they're gonna have many fans here but I'd pay to see our away games (if this were to exist this season).

Would be fun if Savvidis just spun off PAOKTV as an online-only player, snapping up rights here and there. I'd say it would never fly (I mean, it shouldn't as it's a real conflict of interest) but it's not as if terrestrial television isn't already a cesspool of exactly those kinds of conflicts.

Savvas Theodoridis, the clown that used to come out after Olympiakos games giving interviews to a hand with a microphone and claiming that there are 6 million Olympiakos fans and that O Aris is the biggest team up North died from COVID 19 complications. RIP.

Apparently "we sold our B' team" to an Australian businessman Bill Papas (Vasilis Papadimitriou). The selling price apparently depends if the Xanthi stays in Superleague 1. Otherwise the selling price is cut in half. 

And speaking of the relegation/promotion playoffs, it is being played right now wit Apollon completely dominating Xanthi and I have no doubts they will win the promotion. Xanthi is playing with their U17 team as all the players from this past season did not renew their contracts.

The cup final scheduled for tomorrow is postponed again. This time because Maxi Lovera has COVID-19.  Karpouzi Republic.

Hot take: OFI isn't gonna make it through, though Aris may have a chance (I have no idea who that team is).

Why am I not surprised. This covid thing can be used to get out of many unpleasant situations.

So if OFI were to beat Apollon Limassol, they'd get the winner of the Hammarby/Lech Poznan tie

If Aris wins, they'll get HNK Rijeka from Croatia.

As for AEK, they've been drawn against St Gallen, which I believe is Prijovic's home town?

Overall, I think there's a very good chance we'll have three clubs in the competition. Possibly four, though I think five is a stretch. Hopefully they all surprise me, we need those delicious country coefficient points.

Superleague has been postponed once again, because EPO decided to play the cup final on Sep. 12. Why do I have a feeling we won't see the start of the Supeleague for a while.

We don't want any clubs in the group stage (except PAOK). We want 100% of the market pool.

We can't bitch and whine about our country coefficient and then hope that every team fails to qualify.

Common sense seems to have prevailed and the league will start next weekend on the 11th-13th September. AEK-Olympiakos have been "drawn" to play each other in the first round, so that match has been postponed so they can play the Cup final and the rest of the league can get underway. 

Also it seems our request to play on the Friday night (11th) will be granted so we can have the maximum possible break before the Benfica game.

So they have the ability to think outside the box?!?!

OFI and Aris will have one game "in the legs" before representing Greece in Europe. Good for them.
