PAO 1-0 AEK

After beating our Athenian rivals with a score of 1-0 over the weekend, they returned the favour with a 1-0 win of their own courtesy of a Leto penalty. I was following along to the commentary and while we had a few chances of our own, it seemed like a very lackluster performance overall from AEK.

AEK 0-1 Olympiakos

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

The other day, Fourtounis made a comment claiming that on Wednesday (today), Olympiakos would "show which team is the best". Now I'm kind of confused about this because surely, "the best" team would be the team that made it to the Cup Final? But in this case, Olympiakos didn't in fact make it to the Final, so how can they be the best?

On AEK's 93rd birthday, we were treated to an incredibly important win, one which sees us put a foot into the Cup Finals. As Jimenez said today, the future of this team is bright and what we've seen up to and including our victory in Karaiskaki, I see no reason at all for us not to go ahead and win the Cup for a second straight season.

Well I guess all good things must eventually come to an end. After going undefeated for so long with Jimenez as coach, we finally faced our first defeat in months after a heartbreaking loss to PAO.

I was away for the weekend so I didn't get the chance to watch the game live, but I did record it so when I get the chance I'll try to catch a bit of it.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
