E eis que surpreendeu ao assegurar a contratação de Quincy Owusu-Abeyie, um extremo esquerdo que admiro há muito mas que, aos 28 anos, nunca conseguiu verdadeiramente "explodir" e confirmar o talento que demonstrou precocemente.

AEK Athens fans chase everyone off the pitch after their side scores own goal

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

It was a bizarre, but not entirely unexpected scene in Greece when AEK Athens supporters immediately chased both their own team and Panathinaikos off the pitch after their side conceded a late own goal. This was to be the second to last match of the season and with AEK in serious danger of relegation for the first time in the club's 89-year history, the home supporters were even more on edge than usual.

Not a great result, but definitely one we can settle for.

We started off excellently, controlling the game completely, and within the first ten minutes we had two excellent chances to score (one hit the crossbar), but the rain was really coming down and less than twenty minutes into the match the pitch was flooded.

Panathinaikos have been renting the 69,618-seat Olympic Stadium from the state since 2008 (and off and on before that), but financial struggles have left them unable to keep up with the electric bill, leading to calls for them to start playing their matches during the day.
