The Croatian Igor Tudor is PAOK's new coach. He signed a 3-year deal (1+2) worth 240,000 Euro per season. His only coaching experience is coaching Hajduk Split for 1 season, winning the Croatian cup. He was a successful player with Juventus Torino.

I can't see Tudor lasting in such an immediate results expecting environment.

The pressure from the fans/owner and media will be intense. If he's allowed a season to acclimatise then he may well turn in to a great coach but what happens when things aren't going well? He's sent packing?

First thing is he was 1 month to prepare for the Europa matches. Logically I think PAOK will get through the first hurdle without much stress and with the current squad. The challenges are in the next rounds to get to the group stage and then managing these fixtures with the League.

Iraklis' promotion will provide the first derby in 2 seasons so there will be some angst there. Good luck to him though.

Of course he's using it as a resume-builder - he's practically a kid. The philosophy that applies to the players we buy, extends to the coach as well. We just have to trust that Arnesen sees that, and that the desire to show what he can do will lead to successes.

I feel he's using this PAOK role for experience and to sell his merits to a better Italian club.


Nothing wrong with that. Only if we had players with the same mentality. Instead we used to have over-30 year old old timers lookin ahead to their retirement.

I was a disbeliever based on his lack of experience and accomplishment as a coach but he's won me over. He's determined and has belief.

He's stumbled in the league because he (and most people) underrated the standard of the Greek Super League but if he's a good coach he'll find solutions to unlock tight defence and catenaccio tactics.

4 months later, looking at my comment, I still feel the same way.   I still like him, but his inexperience is really starting to show.  He wasn't the greatest choice for coach in a rebuilding from scratch year.  (I think Boloni would have perfect right now)...but I think if he's given the chance, and opportunity to sign more players he'll do better next year.  


A lot of the problems the team is having is Savvidis' insisting on stirring the pot, and getting too involved in matters that he has hired people to handle.  


Here's an interesting graphic from Facebook:


FULL DISCLOSURE:  I did not confirm the stats, but it's on the internet, so it's gotta be true, right?

I feel like Tudor got shafted from the beginning.  He got a dud in Olsen, who cost the team more than just a few points.  Then he was force-fed Berbatov, who just doesn't fit his plans for the team.  I'm sure the money spent on Berbatov could have gotten us a 10ari and a CB that we desperately needed.  Then, he's literally got a fresh new team that gets thrown right into the early stages of Europa League....with little time for preparation.  Then the team is absolutely plagued by injuries.  We lose Konstantinidis, who showed that this would be his break out season.  Leovic and Cimirot missed the first few months with the team, and then Leovic gets injured again.   Then I'm sure sitting Kace wasn't his idea, seeing as he's been a vital part of the team, and seems to be healthy....


I truly believe the his 3-5-2 system would have worked if 1.) We signed a class CB to take Costa's place early one.  2.)  Signed the Striker that the coach actually wanted and 3.) Olsen didn't turn out to be worthless.


I think a middle line like: Rodrigues - Cimirot - Pelkas - Kace - Konstantinidis is pretty solid, with Mak and anothor fast striker up front.... But these guys haven't all been healthy at the same time.

Chatzisias is looking so far like the CB we've been lacking.  One more of him and I'd feel a lot better about our defence.  I think it's time to let Vitor go.  Up front we have problems.  Berbatov and Klaus are not high work rate players and then when you add Tziolis into the mix you've got 3 players that don't run hard.  Makes it difficult for everyone else.  They are all good players in their own way but I wouldn't have all 3 playing at the same time.  I also think that Klaus is not good enough to be a starting CF.

Tudor's squad though on paper is the second best squad in the league and the problem is we are currently sitting on 4th/5th spot! We got knocked out in first round of europa, we are playing crap football. 


Santos had way worse squads and look at how we were playing , aggelo had 11 players and he was at this point sitting first! 


Tudor has been given support by the board even though all the fans wanted him out. 


Tudor was given berbatov the best player to ever play for paok, if he cannot use him correctly whos fault is that? 


Tudor has a 22  year old kace not an 19 year old kace! 


Tudor has been given more than a fair go.

Our injuries have been ridiculous.  The tricky part is working out if there is something the club can do about it.  Is the training too hard ?  Are the facilities or doctors not good enough ?  Add to that the fact that you don't really know with new players what they are capable of.  What I mean is, we buy a player, but more than likely they have come from a team that doesn't play in Europe regularly and then when they have 2 games a week, their body can't cope.

I still think Anastasiadis was thrown to the wolves.  Yes, he's a bit of fruit loop but the fact is, he got us into 1st position for the first time ... this century.  The problem of course is his personality but I still rate him as a manager.  Either way, it doesn't matter anymore.  What's done is done.
