PAOK at a crossroad - What's Next?


Recommended Posts

My first thoughts after last Thursday.

Let Kurtic go. His mind is elsewhere. Not a PAOK for sure. Get some money. Let Tsiggaras play.

Let Douglas Augusto go. Xerokefalos. Does not learn. Should now/do better at his age. 

Vieirinha. The same + with his experience. Give him a job in the staff. This one or PAOK B or the U19.

Andrija. He is lost. Does he need a shrink to get back on track?

Ingason. Was OK (not good or bad)

Schwab. the same.

Koutsias: he is young. I give him some credits.

My friend Biseswar: the only with brains. 

The newbies: to soon to tell but not a Wowww-factor at first glance, though Dantas could be the one that will make us happy. A pity he is a loanee.

He just needs others around him of the same quality. He cannot carry the team.

Are we on the right path ?  Yes ... because we don't have a choice.  The old guard from 18/19 are all gone.

Do PAOK fans have the patience ?  Stupid question ha ha.  Of course not.

I think we won't be able to judge Boto's signings until round 10 or so.  So far they are unimpressive.  The only good thing to come out of pre season is Koutsias.  I just hope we can scrounge enough points to at least be -6 points or less from Olympiacos at the winter break so we can at least be interested in the league.  Having one game a week will have its advantages and disadvantages.

How are we on the right path....? 

We invest in youth then appoint a coach who refuses to play young greeks. Can you see logic here? 

One minute we want experiance then the next season we want youth... Pick a F***en option and stick to it for crying out loud. 

We have been shrinking the player budget for 4 seasons in a row and now have the same budget as Aris... How is this possible? 

Ivan seems to have recouped all his Investement is it time for hin to put the team for sale now? Time for fresh blood? He did 10 years we thank him immensly. He saved the club in our some of our darkest days he brought trophies to the toumba but since he hasnt been around for years is it now time for him to move on??

I think we need to stick to a plan and go for it. We have one of the best youth systems in Greece yet how many greeks get playing time? If we want a rebuild then we need to fully commit. But if the coach doesn’t play the youth , if he’s more of an experienced preferred coach, then we should have brought in guys with more experience. I feel like we are one leg in one plan and the other leg in another plan. Not qualifying for Europe was a failure, no putting it any other way. What happens if we finish 4/5 and don’t win the cup? Then this season would be considered a failure and I could see changes. But what if we challenge for the title and the cup now that our only focus is Greece?

This year the League has a bonus as second place secures CL qualifiers too. Must route for that. Would be better if O Aris and PAO make it to the GS of ECL. They are not used to play Thursday Sunday Thursday Sunday Thursday Sunday. This year the schedule is even more squeezed in a few weeks thanks to the WC.

Not sure if Lucescu is committed to the rebuilding process. I have a feeling that he would have preferred seasoned (and much more expensive) players. However the decision was made by Savvidis to make the team self-sufficient and that's why he hired Boto. I have a feeling that in the end Lucescu will leave the team and Boto will bring in a coach to run the rebuilding process.

Well obviously he wouldn't pay the 7 million.  Easier to just pick the wrong 11 starters, do bad substitutions and go on a losing streak until the club sacks you.
