At A Loss For Words

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

Just when you think you've seen it all in Greek football, something happens that makes you realize you haven't seen anything yet. What unfolded in Toumba today proved yet again that you can really never know what to expect when it comes to this league (though calling it a "league" would be a little too generous.

PAOK Penalties Reversed

You can never truly know what to expect when it comes to football in Greece. The morning of our game with PAOK in Toumba (literally the morning as the decision was made at 1 AM local time in Greece), PAOK was granted two of their demands after appealing the recent penalties inflicted on them due to crowd trouble before their game with Olympiakos.

One Step Closer!

AEK took one huge step closer to the Championship today after beating Panionios 1-0 at home. However, it wasn't our victory alone but rather what happened with PAOK and Oly that has made the difference. Prior to our game today, Asteras clinched an unbelievable 3-2 over PAOK in the 98th minute, a minute after PAOK had made it 2-2 in the 97th minute.

Atromitos 1-1 AEK

So as you may have seen already, and as was mentioned in a comment in a previous point, the all important PAOK-Oly game was never played. I'm sure it comes as no surprise too that the reason was once again fan trouble from the PAOK fans.

Why would I bring this up in a post about a game between AEK and Atromitos?

Dynamo Kyiv 0-0 AEK

It just wasn't our day. Chance after chance, even a couple open nets, but nothing the team did could result in that crucial away goal that could have taken us through to the next round. The storyline was similar to what we saw last week: we controlled possession, had the better chances, but ultimately came up short in the end.

Where Do I Begin?

What a season this has been for us AEK supporters so far. Away from the blog for one week and I have not one, not two, but three incredibly important AEK stories to discuss. Whats more is that it all took place within the span of about four days. Lets start at the beginning though:

Last Thursday we faced Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League Round of 32.

AEK 1-0 Asteras Tripolis

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

After two straight wins against Olympiakos, AEK would have gone in to today's game against Tripolis knowing the 3 points were anything but guaranteed. Sure enough, we had a much harder time today though I would argue a lot of that came from bad luck rather rather than having anything to do with the opponent we were facing.

It Just Doesn’t End! (AEK 2-1 Olympiakos)

For the 3rd time this season, Olympiakos have been outclassed in every way by an AEK team that seems to thrive when playing against our rivals. Today's match, which sealed our place in the Cup Semi-Finals, was the 4th time we've played Olympiakos this season and ensured we remain unbeaten against them after winning 3 and drawing 1 (our previous Cup game against them which ended 0-0 in Karaiskaki).

AEKARA!! (Olympiakos 1-2 AEK)

Greek derbies... you gotta love them! You never know what can happen and with the way AEK has played this season, expecting anything but the unexpected is just foolish.

So when AEK were down 1-0 in Karaiskaki, with under ten minutes to go, all one had to do was remember our 3-2 come from behind win earlier this season to get some hope that the same thing could happen again.

AEK 2-0 Lamia

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

And just like that, were back in the race. Thanks to our 2-0 win against Lamia and Olympiakos' 1-1 draw in Tripolis, only two points separate 1st and 3rd. As it stands, we currently sit 3rd with 41 points, behind Olympiakos on 42 and PAOK on 43. Its safe to say we haven't seen a top 3 that was this close in as long as I can remember and it certainly sets up a high stakes encounter when we face Olympiakos in Karaiskaki this coming weekend.

Olympiakos 0-0 AEK

So we played the first quarter final game two days ago, our first of three games against Olympiakos within two weeks. A win would have been nicer for sure but overall I guess a draw isn't a terrible result. Like Jimenez said, a 1-1 draw would have been ideal, but I guess we'll still be able to go into the game next match with a decent chance of going through.

Larissa 0-0 AEK

So that was disappointing...

At least the result doesn't signal the end of the road for us just yet. The 1 point we managed to salvage is still a big one as it still keeps us within reach of first, but I think its fair to assume these draws are starting to become a bit tiring. Yesterday's result marks our fifth draw so far this campaign.

AEK 3-1 PAS Giannena

Our strong start to 2018 continued with another win, this time against 11th placed PAS Giannena. Overall it was a fairly decent game, but Giannena did manage to tie the match at 1-1 for a while which resulted in some uncertainty. Ultimately though, despite the generally slow pace to the match, our finishing was critical enough when we needed it to be.

Panetolikos 1-4 AEK

Well its certainly nice to be back! Don't get me wrong, I love the holidays, and getting back to work and the daily routine that comes with it wasn't all that exciting but hey, if theres one good thing to take from this time of year, its the fact that we get to watch AEK again!

This year especially is an exciting time since for the first time in as long as I can remember, we start a new year with a legitimate chance at a Championship.

Back To Winning Ways

After a less than ideal weekend, our football and basketball teams got back to winning ways in the Cup and Champions League respectively. For our football side, it was a 4-0 away win against Panaitolikos that all but secures us a place in the next round courtesy of goals from Lazaros, Bakasetas, Galo, and Giakoumakis.
