Xanthi 1-1 AEK

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

After our first loss of the season to Tripolis a couple weeks ago, its safe to say we were all hoping for a bounce back win to get our title push back on track. Well, all we got instead was a rather disappointing 1-1 draw. The point helps keep us within reach of PAOK as we only sit one point behind them in 2nd, but a win would have been just enough to keep us in 1st.

AEK 2-0 Lamia

After facing Lamia for the second time in less than a week, we managed to come away with yet another win with a slightly more convincing scoreline.

I'm just watching the game now and while it might not have been the best game we've played this season, it wasn't an awful performance. More importantly, it gets us an important first win in the Cup against a team that is the toughest opponent in our group (with the other two being Kallithea and Apollon Larissa).

Lamia 0-1 AEK

A late (and somewhat fortunate) penalty turned out to be the difference for AEK after a game which saw many chances but few goals thanks to some great goalkeeping by Lamia's Papadopoulos.

It wasn't a great game but it did provide some entertainment as both sides had their chances to score.

AEK 0-1 Olympiakos

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?

Olympiakos 1-2 AEK

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.

Important points dropped in Thessaloniki

Well, the good news is that we remain unbeaten under Jimenez. Bad news, though, is that we desperately needed all three points from yesterday's game. Unfortunately, we only came away with one which keeps us three points away from a playoff spot.

Possibly the worst part about the result yesterday would have to be the fact that we could have come away with a win had our goaltending been tighter.

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.

Catching Up…

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

There was a mix up with our new internet provider here at home and so I had no connection to the web from about Friday morning until now. I am happy to report though that everything is up and running very smoothly, but this now means I have some catching up to do on the AEK news. For starters, heres a brief summary:

-We won our game against Panionios, 1-0 courtesy of Mantalos

-We also won our second game against Aris for third place in the basketball league by a score of 89-84

-Reports are suggesting that we're very close to singing Olympiakos target Tasos Bakasetas (would be a great signing if this is true)

So, I didn't get to watch the game against Panionios since I was working (though I should get to watch our game tomorrow), but it seems like we played pretty well from what I saw during the highlights.

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.

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?

Final-4 Bound!

Almost 24 hours after we qualified for the Football Cup final, our Basketball team did what we haven't been able to do for eleven years: make it to the league semi-finals. It certainly won't be easy from here on since we face Olympiakos in the next round (and then either Panathinaikos or Aris in the finals if we make it that far), but theres no reason we can't make it to the finals.

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?
