I've always had a "fascination" with Argentina. I've never been there, but its always been high on my list of places to visit. I have to be honest though and admit that part of the reason I've been interested in the country for so many years now though is simply the fact that we've some incredible football players from Argentina play for AEK.

AEK 1-0 Olympiakos

A promising start with Manolo has gotten even better after we beat Olympiakos at OAKA for the third time in a row. Not only was yesterday's result a satisfying one because we beat a team that has proven itself to be run by hypocritical sore losers, but it also put us back in playoff spots after months outside of the top 5.

Stalemate in the Athens Derby

Going into the match against PAO this weekend, I was kind of expecting a draw. Both teams haven't been having a great season and ultimately its safe to say that the squads for either team have proven to be equally disappointing this season.

I'll take the 0-0 draw because to be honest, I would not have been surprised if we found a way to lose this one.

Tripolis 3-2 AEK

At least we managed to score this time..

Sadly though, and as I feared, we didn't even manage to come away with a point. To be fair to the team, the pitch had a noticeable layer of snow throughout and from what I read during the game, the players struggled at times to get the ball to move well.

Something worth noting from the match was that Ognen Vranjes, our recently signed Bosnian centreback, received a red card during the game (his first appearance for us).

PAOK 71-78 AEK

An extremely important win for AEK in the league today, one which saw us struggle but ultimately show the character needed to come away from Thessaloniki with the win. Seeing as we had yet to play a derby until today, this match was one of our first major tests and though it wasn't always smooth sailing for us, the team did well to do what was needed to keep our perfect start to the season.

PAOK 1-0 AEK

Referee Mistakes Play Huge Role This Weekend

After an eventful Atromitos-Olympiakos macthup the day before which saw many questionable refereeing decisions go Olympiakos' way, it was another poor call which ultimately led to PAOK's extra time winner.

It was a shame really since AEK could have and really should have come away from this game with the point, a result which in all honesty I would have been pleased with considering how we fared in our last derby.

Poor Start for Morais

AEK 0-0 Panionios

I guess all things considered, things could have gotten off to an even worse start for Morais... after all, we could have lost. But really, even though it was only his first game in charge the team really should have been able to find a way to score against Panionios.

How It All Unfolded

There were a few uncertain variables going into this game: how we would do without Galo and Patito, how Morais would line up the team, etc.

AEK 0-0 Iraklis

A massive opportunity for AEK to make a statement was wasted earlier today when we failed to even sneak a win past Iraklis. Why was one game such an opportunity? Well if you haven't seen the other results from the league yet, something pretty spectacular happened this weekend. It started when PAOK's home game with Xanthi ending in a 0-0 draw before PAO saw a similar fate after their game against Panaitolikos also ended 0-0.

AEK 0-0 PAOK

Very unfortunate result for us, and one that we perhaps didn't deserve since we were the only team who showed up today looking for a win. But thats football sometimes. I expected a win, if only for the fact that we've won all our derbies at OAKA until now this season, but fatigue once again got the better of us.

AEK 3-1 Panathinaikos

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

Huge win for the team today, a win that puts us back in with a shot of getting first in the playoffs. A loss today would have essentially ended all hope for us, but the win now means that if we win both of our upcoming matches, we finish top. I'm feeling pretty confident at this point and if it wasn't for the fatigue really getting to the players, I would be certain that we could win both games.

Aris 74-69 AEK

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

So close to finishing the season off and cementing ourselves in 3rd place, but we instead let Aris get the better of us despite playing in an empty arena. We had a number of key players out due to injury and suspension, so we did well all things considered but we simply weren't able to hold Aris off towards the end.

Panathinaikos 3-0 AEK

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

Three games in six days, I'm really not sure whose bright idea that was. Regardless, the effects were apparent today and there was little the team could do to hold off PAO. I'm not trying to make excuses for the team, but who can expect better when they play a Cup final, followed by a game against Panionios three days later and then an away derby three days after that.

The Cup Is Ours!

I try to look at things rationally most of the time. I like to take things for what they are and not take from them something that simply isn't there since doing so usually just leads to disappointment. Tonight though, I have to make an exception.

I'll have to start off by saying that I didn't get the chance to watch the match live since I had things booked from a while back that I couldn't change at all.

PAOK 2-1 AEK

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

Possibly the worst start to the playoffs that we could have hoped for, dropping all three points as well as falling to third in the standings. We got lucky in considering Panathinaikos only managed to draw 1-1 with Panionios, but yesterday's result certainly puts the pressure on us from an early stage.

Cup Is Canceled… Again

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

So it looks like the Cup has been canceled for the second time this season. Really never expected something like this to happen, to have a Cup final canceled twice in season, but I guess its not that surprising at all given the way things are run in Greece at the moment.

The official reason for the cancellation was that the police were concerned about safety, even though the only people in the stadium would have been the players and the 300 or so friends and family members of the players.

Cup Bound

Another game I wasn't able to watch but from what I've read so far, it sounds like our playing left much to be desired. But, in the end we did enough to get through like I knew we would and now its all or nothing against Olympiakos in the final.

Speaking of finals, the game will be taking place next Saturday, the 7th of May (is it May already?
