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.

Ah Greece…

What would we do without all the excitement that comes out of the country on an almost daily basis. I have to admit, it can be entertaining at times but more often than not, it leads to disappointment and anger from those of us who just want to see our club succeed.

Why do I say all this now?

What a joke…

An announcement was made today by EPO, stating that as soon as a single flare is thrown on to the pitch from now on, the game must either be suspended temporarily or cancelled altogether.

I suppose its a fair rule, considering people have actually been killed after being hit by flares. But I can't help but think that the timing of all this is a bit odd.

Adamidis Speaks Out

First of all, AEK365 has the new team photos for the season available. Nice looking pics in my opinion, with Agia Sofia in the background being a very nice touch. Also nice to see a big smile on Libe's face.

Now, Adamidis was quite furious with officiating at the match against Tripolis (rightfully so since at least one, but quite possibly more, penalties were not awarded to us).

AEK Cup Final News and Greek All-Star Game

AEK Archives at related • 2 views

EPO has said that AEK will be the home team for this year's cup final. This is good news for AEK, and hopefully it will mean we get to choose our gates (AEK wants gates 1-35, a significant portion of OAKA, about half), our locker rooms, and whether our fans arrive by train (instead of busses).

Former Fulham and Xanthi Striker Radzinski Speaks Out On Greek Super Leage Corruption

AEK Archives at related • 6 views
AEK fans are as familiar as any Greek fans with the suspicious way decisions are made (or not made, or unmade) by the EPO (the Greek FA). Last year, as has been well-documented on this blog, Olympiacos was able to take the League Championship from AEK through a shady court maneuver (essentially Oly argued that [.

AEK Roundup: Donis and Kyrgiakos Bite Tongues, Edinho Gets Noticed, Greek Refs Still Crap

AEK Archives at related • 0 views
Donis was again happy with his players' performance again Panionios Sunday.  Donis has been very even-tempered during his post-game interviews, careful to praise his players for their hard work.  Indeed, he even refrained from criticizing the officiating, which was dodgy, as is unfortunately typical in the Greek Super Legue.

We lined up like this: Lyberopoulos Blanco Rivaldo Edinho Toszer -Kafes Bourbos -Pilatsikas Alves -Dellas Macho And everyone played well, even Pilatsikas who is arguably a class below the rest of the team (though steadily improving as he gets more first team experience).  At the start of the second half, Kallon subbed in for Lyberopoulos; in the 59th minute, Ramos Silva went in for Edinho; and in [.

Well, we won last Wednesday and we won again yesterday, but so did fellow title contenders Olympiacos and Panathinaikos. And though Olympiacos didn't play last Wednesday, they still registered a win and picked up three points thanks to a Greek Football Federation (EPO) decision that overturned an earlier loss to Apollon Kalamarias.

We play Larissa F.C. tomorrow, Saturday, February 9th, at 9:45 am East Coast Time. I am very nervous about this match, for the following reasons. First, Larissa are no push-overs. They won the Greek Cup last year and had a okay run in this year's UEFA Cup, defeating Blackburn of the EPL in the first round before losing [.


Another Scandal… What a Surprise

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

I say it all the time, but it really is a shame a country as beautiful as Greece is in the hands of such incompetent, corrupt, and embarrassing people.

I often find myself looking to the east and west of Greece, countries such as Turkey, Italy, France, Spain, and wish we didn't have the people we did stopping us from competing with such nations.

Footballer autobiographies can be found housed under the Dewey decimal system in the eight circle of hell. Where does that put autobiographies by the team doctors of famous teams? Hitchhiking to the ninth, I suppose.

The team doctor from France's '98 World Cup win has made some fairly damning statements regarding the blood samples of France's World Cup-winning side from 1998.
