Konstantinos Mavropanos ‒ VfB Stuttgart (on loan from Arsenal until June 30, 2021)


Recommended Posts

Arsenal held a clean sheet. He was fine. A bit nervous, but that's normal being a 21 year old with only 1 premier league game under his belt and having not played in almost an entire calendar year. He did not make any costly mistakes. Koscielny, who was injured for a few months and has hundreds of top tier caps under his belt, was very rusty in his first 3-4 games coming back from injury this season. Our kid is more than alright.

Mavropanos is on the verge of moving to Nuremberg on loan for the rest of the season. They are currently fighting for their lives in Germany's second division as they are third last and in a relegation playoff spot. Would've been better to see him move to a club in the top tier somewhere, but I guess any minutes are good at this stage.

He needs minutes so this isn't a bad move for him. It's not like he would drop to 3. Bundesliga if ever they end up relegated. This move could have been worse, like to the GSL.

Dinos has been superb for Nurnberg since his arrival a few weeks back. NT constantly selects players with a lot less pedigree, hope to see him in the fold for next month's friendlies.

Without Manolas, Papastathopoulos and Hatzidiakos, I think he should most def get selected. 

I hope that Manolas and Sokratis are back.

If they care about their country and heritage they should want to come back. They can’t do anything about changing the EPO. It is what it is, hopefully there is a change of management soon. Manolas would definitely be key to our success going forward. Sokratis, I don’t know. It seems like he isn’t where we need him to be anymore and Hatzidiakos or Mavropanos are good enough replacements in my opinion.

Sokratis is still playing at a very high level in England. He is still in the starting XI for me for the next campaign. 

As for Manolas, it would be travesty to lose a player like that in his prime because of conflict with management.

I think both have problems with upper management. It would be a travesty if both don’t return. Sokratis has lots of experience and still playing at a high level and Manolas is in the prime of his career in a decent league with Napoli. Manolas speed alone is essential for the team. 

I hope they return but if they don’t I have faith in Hatzidiakos and Retsos. Mavropanos has a lot to do to convince me that he can be our top defender but he is getting there and if it wasn’t for injuries he would be still at Arsenal and might’ve been an important player for them in my opinion. Hopefully all 3 stay injury free for the majority of their careers as they have great potential.

Its unfortunate what has happened lately with K.Papadopoulos.

Been awhile since I posted but I think Manolas is still useful for the NT as his speed and challenges makes him difficult to play against. As for Sokratis his last game ironically vs Olympiakos was the best I have seen him play in quite sometime. He was asked by Greek reporters after the match if he would want back in to the NT. He didn’t rule out a return and said the NT needs calm now and acknowledge JVS has done a great job since he has taken over. 

I love what Sokratis has given to the NT over the years from watching him frustrate Messi in the 2010 World Cup and then fast forward to the 2014 World Cup when he scored the dramatic equalizer vs CR. I just have a hard time getting over how he went after the last coach and how his actions basically costed Greece a vital three points vs Armenia and thus ruined our euro qualification.

I think everything happens for a reason. Most likely for a good reason. Sokratis has given Greece a lot over the years. I still think he has something to offer after watching him lately. Manolas should be a lock in this team even though we shouldn’t be saying that. Everyone has to earn their spot. 

I wouldn’t mind having them back.

Serie A is way more than a decent league. It's world class.

He's been loaned out for next season to promoted Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.  Big year for him and his career, the chance to play in the Bundesliga, he's 22. Time to stop being a talent and step up and cement his spot as a starter in one of Europe's top leagues. Hopefully his body holds up and he is able to have a big season.
