    I think he did:cool: Last time we played in their shithole they had some huge flags with text about his mother and his family. I just want him to score against those chickens and take out his d*ck in front of their chicken fans:mad:

    Unfortunately it was his last game there, cause he will retire at the end of the season.

    Actually he didn't do a shit against them, but they don't have any class or respect whatsoever. Labriakos is a guy that doesn't hide his love for Aris but he shows respect for everyone.

    paok is the dirtiest and filthiest team in europe and probably in the world. One day I can tell you more stories about them and what kind of team they are.

    We were a disgrace today. Even when we lost 4-1 against them in the regular season we played better than today. We couldn't connect a fricking pass. No excuses for this game. They have to work their asses an win the next one.

    I didn't get to watch the game because of the crappy streams and not being able to install Sopcast (on mac) anyways supposedly Adu was decent today but the team played very poorly although I think the officials really let the team get away with murder in the first 15 minutes and took Aris out of their game.

    Yeah I agree, we hardly had a good finish on their goal. Next week will be very important, with 4-6 points in the next couple of games we are in the race again.

    I would like to see Calvo and Adu on the wings some game.

    Aris game was a disaster. Nothing worked.
    The only suvivors were Adu FK's and Koke's chance. Everyone else below 0.
    Lets hope they find the strength and get a positive result against AEK at Wednesday.

    The agression and temperment of the game got to Aris. They buckled under the atmosphere on the field. I wont lie, it looked scary to play out there, injury city, and with thugs like Pablo Garcia, Ivic, and others on PAOK.... a game I would NOT like to play in.

    Thank god Nacho didnt play, or his ass made out of glass would have shattered. :p

    I am pissed though at Dario Fernandez, he almost caused that third goal where he had a bad backpass, and played bad the whole game.

    Then again, Aris played bad the whole game. Koke for me should have started. He didnt play well lodged out right where Adu was, as a wing forward.

    Today just was a bad game. :(

    Our guys played like p*ssies today. I thought players like Fernandez would be up to this kind of game cause he use to be able to answer and play hard too. We really need Nafti back cause he is our strongest player, Nacho is not bad either but I think he might would have been sent off in a game like this cause of his temper and history with Pablo Garcia.

    Look at Nachos face hehe, he is not afraid of anyone, specially not Pablo, he already kicked his ass many times as you might know:)

    But it's totally crazy that we use to win those games with much worse players than we have today.

    The americans were not bad today, but they didn't get much to work with and everytime Johnson were going to fight for the ball they were awarded with FK's.

    I think the upcoming games will fit them much better cause it will be more open games and they will get some more space.

    I just wish everyone could have the same heart as Labriakos.

    Yeah I agree with you. It's totally bullshit actually. They just made it so there can be some more games and so they can make some extra money.

    Oh yea, they always have history! I remember the last copa america in 2007.... ********ing Uruguay!!!! He had some serious tackles, and when they played under his rule as captain, they played ROUGH!!! He was always a 'bad boy' of south america when playing with uruguay, no wonder seeing that he plays at Paok.

    Screw him!

    Well I wouldn't say the NBA playoffs is bullshit cause basketball should have playoffs, it's the most exciting part of the season. The Greek soccer playoffs is totally nonsense, just some playoffs between the teams placed 2-5 in the league where the most you can get is a ticket to the qualification of Champions League instead of playing Europe League were you probably end up anyway. I mean you play all those games for a very small difference in the end.

    I agree with you about soccer. Look at MLS, RSL are the champions of MLS. RSL just wasn't a championship team last year. They finished in the bottom half of the league in terms of points, but were champions because they were hot for a few games and caught a few breaks in their 4 playoff games.

    So sum this up right since I missed it...

    Aris sucked it up, but at least Adu took some nice free kicks? Did he do well during the run of play? Was he one of the better Aris players?

    Thanks! :)

    I think our players had a visit from some of our fans at the hotel and let's hope we won't see any poor performance like today again. The fans have all the rights to be mad with what we saw today. The point is not the bad performance but it's that they didn't even give it all, they didn't fight for the win. If some players don't change attitude I think their days at the club are counting down. With a win against AEK though we will be back in the race.

    I hope to God Bradley doesn't make decisions based on form in two matches!
    I'd think he'll ask the club for a DVD. :rolleyes:

    They all were CRAP! EJ played tough, with his style and body which he has learned inthe EPL, but still got roughed up.

    From the beginning the pace was fast, and agressive with tackles all done on a personal level to intimidate and hurt Aris players.

    That got to them, and many to me seemed to play 'scared'.

    I wasnt impressed much with any player in particular, Adu had some nice moments of beating his mark with turning the ball but often got calls because he'd beat a player and then get kicked in the leg.

    Campora and EJ tried their best as they got manhandled by the defenders. They miss a good central midfielder right now to control the pace in the game. They miss Nafti, and IMO should have started Koke over one of the forwards.
