    Let's hope it doesn't rain again!

    I 've had enough with all this humidity, it has soaked us to the bone!

    Apart from that, I can't ignore how unlucky we are with all these injuries, especially in the midfield area. Nafti, Nacho, Fernandez, Meriem are either injured, banned or doubtful for Wednesday's game and it's up to Prittas to take charge of the defensive duties. I am very curious how Cuper will adjust to this puzzle he faces... If Meriem is fit, he will be next to Prittas, otherwise Cuper will risk with Fernandez.

    Adu is definite for the left wing, no doubt about that. I think that from now on, his participation in the lineup will be common news; not being in it will be the surprise...
    I think Johnson is also going to get a starting spot, next to Koke, given their efficient cooperation, as well as EJ's personal performance in the recent games.

    Finally, there is another rumor going on about a weird formation that Cuper might employ: Johnson/Campora up front, Adu/Calvo on the wings and Koke next to Prittas, as an attacking midfielder. Of course, that's a very unprobable scenario, but Cuper is very keen on experimenting new things.

    That's our big game for this year! We won't let such an opportunity slip off our hands, especially if u consider the dramatic equaliser of the previous game. Expect a great atmosphere in the stadium!

    The 18 players Cuper chose for tomorrow's game:

    GK: Sifakis, Frasheri
    DF: Neto, Arano, Ronaldo, Nasuti, Vangelj, Kouloucheris
    MF: Prittas, Calvo, Javito, Fernandez, Adu, Nafti
    FW: Koke, Campora, Johnson, Lambriakos

    Nafti and Fernandez welcome back!!! Of course, neither of them is sure to play, but it's a big step to have them both back healthy!

    No that would be bad. That should be our last option if nothing else works. He would piss off his teammates if he did that. :p
