THE GODS ARE WATCHING

 

Not much talk. Joe Baxter goes to Greece!

"I loved the days when Predrag Djordjevic was playing for Olympiakos. Especially when playing European ties, it was mostly him who was able to turn games around. And of course the cauldron Karaiskakis StadiumThe unbelievable fans and their red fires in the stands... great days. Now its the time to lead them back to those good times."

THE GODS ARE WATCHING

 

THE SQUAD

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

We have a very talented young goalkeeper in Kostas Tzolakis. (Yes, his Morale is Good!). But our number one for the season will be Jose Sa.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Sokratis Papadopoulos and Semedo will lead from the back. 

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Despite his age, Valbuena still has a lot to give on the wings. Fortounis is our playmaker.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

New signing "Lord" Bendtner will be second choice  behind 33 year old Youssef El Arabi.

 

All in all, we got some really OLD people in the squad. And they mostly have key positions. So I guess, this year will be the last for most of them and we will move into a transition phase after this season to bring younger people here.

 

PRE-SEASON

Not a very good pre-season, but we have hope.

Banishments to Constantinople (Valbuena) and an exotic new signing (Bendtner), and not very friendly! The Gods are watching and waiting.

Mady Camara is absolutely top class from my experience. Was literally the best midfielder in Ligue 1 for me. 

Yeah, and i am glad we got him! He is still 23 only, hope we can hold on to him :)

SEPTEMBER 2020

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A nice away win on day one of the Super League but then the results kept stalling in 3 draws in a row. One of those draws was the away draw at Slavia in Prague though, which helped us a lot on our way to making it to the group stage of the UEFA Champions LeagueYoussef El Arabi established himself as our striker number one. Bendtner will have to be patient.

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

A pretty mediocre start to the campaign but at least we have not lost a game yet.

 

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

This is our group. The best we can hope for is 3rd place.

OCTOBER 2020

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Our mediocre league form continued into the beginning of october, but then we managed a well-deserved draw at home against big guns Sevilla and from then on it got better. Two wins in the Super League followed. We still lost our home game against Manchester United but that was expected and closer than the result shows. 

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

It is very early in the season anyway.

 

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

3rd place. Sevilla do not look that strong at all as they also drew against Lokomotiv.

NOVEMBER 2020

 

RESULTS

Very bad start. But then we somehow picked us up and closed it with two 4-0 wins. The win against Lokomotiv was especially important as they are our direct rivals for 3rd place in the group.

Those two tweets sum up our month perfectly.

The table doesnt look better after 10 match days.

 

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

2nd place but I don´t think we will stay there.

DECEMBER 2020

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Bad times in europe, when we got hammered 2 times. But in the league we are gaining ground - 3 wins and none conceded.

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

We jump onto 3rd place.

 

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

The group was tough, but hey we at least wanted to end up in 3rd position. But it wasn´t to be.

Much more like it domestically. Shame about crashing out of Europe entirely but hopefully you can return next season in a stronger position.

Certainly hope so, but some key players like Valbuena are going to leave after the season and we plan to rebuild with greek players, which are hard to find in that quality... but let´s wait and see :)

JANUARY 2021

 

RESULTS

A great start into the new year. We gather points and move up in the table. And we are into the next round of the greek cup too.

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

Establishing at the top.

 

WINTER WINDOW TRANSFERS

spacer.png

Semedo of course is a big loss, but he was getting unsettled and we had to let him go in the end. Ba has to step up now. Randelovic leaving hurts a bit too, but he did not seem to develop that much. Hasan was complaining about not playing much and so we loaned him out. Stamoulis is a youth player without perspective at our club.

spacer.png

We had to  bring in cover for our central defense and thats why backup player Kostas Tr...oh forget it lets call him Kostas came in. Natsos is another backup for our central midfield.

FEBRUARY 2021

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A perfect month if it wasnt for the defeat in the greek cup after penalties... We were the better team after 120 minutes but then AEK won the lottery. 

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

We close the first league stage on top. Now 10 games will follow in the so-called "Champions group" of the first 6 teams.

Nice to see our Youth is so good. Probably some players will make it into next seasons squad.

MARCH & APRIL 2021

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

We somehow turned into an italian team in the last weeks. Apart from the deserved loss against PAOK we did not concede but only scored 5 goals in 6 matches, so 13 points is not bad.

 

SUPER LEAGUE

spacer.png

Only one win needed and we will be Greek Champions. Looks managable.

Meh. The youngsters don´t look that good.

Seems like you went through a transformation as seen as you crashed out of Europe. You suddenly hit top form. :thup:

I've never managed in Greece. Have to give it a go one day. 

You squad looks rammed full of CA but with no PA. Your intake looks pretty pants too. Think you need to splash the cash and get rid of some of the oldies. 

Good luck. Title looks to be in the bag already. :thup:

Thank you :)  The title seems ours to lose, yes. But we still need one win..

Yeah - maybe the lads just didnt like playing in europe, all the travelling around and flying? ;) 

And the intake was ***** indeed. Luckily we have some prospects already in our U19 and some were out on loan this season so next season should look better in that regard. The oldies will get booted thats for sure :)
