    Klona tends to look like that anyway to be fair..

    I only saw the first half before my feed went to complete shit, and it was looking awful based on the opening 45 minutes. Mantalos, Klona, and Verde looked like they were on molly. Livaja was always going to be a huge part of any European campaign, and I was proven correct when he replaced Klona.

    He has a big presence and should partner well with Oliveira as a second striker in theory--reality might prove otherwise--but he's somebody we really missed in our last CL campaign.

    Good result in the end but we still have a second leg to clinch. Next round will be harder so we need to shake out all the rust. Hopefully Cardoso figures out his best squad quickly.

    Oiko had picked up a slight knock amd wasnt 100% apparently.

    Svarnas held his own and you would not think it was his 1st game next to Vranjes they both seemed to play well together.

    We lacked match fitness a lot and that’s what happens when you play very average teams and not enough friendly matches. The team will settle and gel must hope it doesn’t take too long. Apparently it was also very hot inside the stadium so fatigue played a factor on our part. The one positive is we have a lot of depth this season which helps us.

    Livagia was fantastic for us today, no idea why he didn’t start as Klona was a let down. Once Oliveira is ready also we will be much stronger.

    Good away win and you’d think now we are through to the next round.

    Great result! Concerning first half but much better second, early in the season and we have only stated so should only get better and so will the gell between players.

    Interesting that Svarnas got the start over Oikonomou

    Great result. For me your weakest 2 players were Verde and Klona.

    I can understand the dismay at klona starting as aek deserve better. I think ouzo liked him because though he can't lead the attack, he has some value as the forgotten man in attack because he's quick and has some finishing ability. He could work playing off livaja. He benefited immensely playing with berg.

    Whilst not perfect, livaja is a stud for this aek. I wouldn't be taking him out of the starting 11.

    Though not for the big games, mantalos can thrive against this type of opposition.

    The romanians showed a lot of enthusiasm in their play but simply aren't good enough.

    FT 0-2

    Better in the 2nd half, still work to do. 1st game under the belt will help a lot and will only get better the more games we play. Some nice first touch pass moments but you can see players like Hult, Mantalos, Siamo even Vranjes etc are rusty.

    Livaja MOTM, looks in good form and when he is in the humour to play he is our best player by a country mile.

    Klona and Simao went off injured, hopefully nothing serious.

    Should finish the job in Athens.

    Trabzonspor scored 2 in the last 5 minutes to get our of Prague with a draw, it ended 2-2. We will have to raise our game if/when we play one of them.

    Pretty poor 1st haf from us, the lack of match fitness and fluidity is showing.

    Mantalos with our 2 big chances. Vranjes should have at least hit the heqder with his header from the free kick.

    The front 4 (Klona/Mantalos/Geraldes/Verde) was not clicking. Klona barely touched the ball until he came off for Livaja for the last 5 monutes and in such time he has already had an impact.

    Need to move the ball around faster, the Romanians are nothing special by any means but they are definitely more match fit, I think they have played 4 league games and 4 Europa games up until this one.

    Need to win this.

    Cant remember the last time I seen a subs bench where you could say they could all be starters. We have great depth this year, if only Chyg wasnt made of glass. We definitely need another CB of his quality.

    PAME MORI AROSTIAAAAA!

    I think they overestimated, they have 2k so far will hope for 4k.

    I was thinking that too Reaper but if 1 child is found over the age of 14 they get another ban I believe. We can barely keep out hooligans with Molotovs let alone 15 year olds and over.

    10k kids? What Greek teams should do every time they have a ban.
