Today’s Morning Press is plenty of zoumaki. The. Fairytale of the world of Olympiacos, the eloquent statements of Karebe, PAOK of Garcia and the return of Panathinaikos to the Avenue.

Read below excerpts from the articles of today’s sports newspapers.

At the start of this year’s Champions League, Christian Karebe publicly expressed the dream of the Red and Whites to conquer it at some point!

Yesterday was the time for new “conquests” on the part of the Frenchman, which this time concerned the Europa League. Dreams are good and holy, aspirations are even more humanly acceptable, but somewhere there must be reality, based on the bar that each team has to manage.

Apparently Karebe is carried away by his own impressive career and manifests such grandiose goals. However, if he “lands” in his current capacity and in the excellent work he undoubtedly does at Olympiakos, he can easily understand that the realistic goals are for the Greek champion to qualify first in a quarterfinal of a major event, in the Europa League in this case.

Because from the “16” to the conquest of a European trophy is … millions of cigarettes a road! These feats are not done by parachuting, but step by step. One at a time and further forward. So when this year’s Olympiacos managed to win just 3 points in the Champions League groups and had 5 defeats in 6 matches, then obviously tricks about winning the Europa League are not in line with reality. Especially when they come from the mouth of such an experienced and successful person.

What does Garcia want to make the team 100% his own? Through the placements he has made during this time, several things have been seen. Initially, Garcia asked for ready players. That is, not footballers who will be out of rhythm or very young players who should be given time credit. From there on he has talked about fast players in the center. He considers the speed of his team to be speed (especially in the center) and obviously he will look for them in terms of transfer.

Garcia has also spoken about the lack of purebred wingers. From the moment the Zampa case is lost, the issue becomes bigger and bigger. That’s what he said and so we conclude. From there and beyond whoever has eyes sees that from his movements and choices the problems in the for and in 10. stand out. The logic and the course show the weaknesses of PAOK, some of which (speed and midfielder on the axis) can be combined.

What AEK needs is hard work to improve and develop as a team. It takes work in the psychological field for players to regain confidence. Because, it is easy to troll and level every player who wears the AEK jersey for the cheap and effortless mistakes he makes, but the reality is that these players have shown that – under the right conditions – they can stand in the right way .

What AEK, Carrera, must create in order to be precise, is these right conditions. AEK stumbles in defense. Mistakes are made, which do not happen even on an amateur level. For another game she entered slowly, without faith in her potential and the only thing she managed in relation to the previous matches, was simply to delay the fatal one by 5 ‘.

It is obvious, from the handling of the team, for a long time, that there is no player who believes in himself. He can easily see this by looking at someone on the roster. From Livagia and Oliveira, to Hnid and Mitai, not all players know if they have a stable position. This is an issue that needs to change. The one who has to change it is Carrera and he has days ahead of him in order to be able to reach a competitive improvement of the team and from there to great competitive successes, which will keep it alive in the goal of the championship. The rest on the field …


PAOK does not have the best center forwards in the league, but it certainly has the two best wingers and thanks to the new formation they can reach the area more easily and either threaten or win a penalty.

However, my impression is that the biggest change that exists in PAOK during Garcia’s time has to do with the constant rotation. The Uruguayan has so far used 24 (!) Footballers as key (between Greece and Europe), showing in practice his confidence in all his players.

Most of all, however, he has realized that in a season where no one has prepared for the summer as well as he would like, it will be easier for anyone with more athletic freshness to win, that is, more players available to be in the starting lineup.

In my opinion, this makes PAOK look closer to victory than Aris tomorrow.


At Panathinaikos there are intense thoughts of returning in 2021-22 to Apostolos Nikolaidis and staying of the team there until the new stadium in Votanikos is built. And especially if the conditions are favorable for the return of the people and next season we see fans on the field again, it is a given that the Greens will seek to leave OAKA and return to their physical headquarters.

It is something that does not exist just as an early thought, but has been discussed a lot within Panathinaikos. And something, of course, that they also know about the amateur Panathinaikos, with whom there is now an important level of communication and good contact. In fact, it is possible that PAE will not even need rent from the amateur, who will receive the permanent percentage he is entitled to from the match tickets.


At Olympiakos they easily understand the fairy tale they eat from the big boss. They are used to it, after all. Their team goes out in the Champions League, becomes a carp extractor and they realize that not only does it not have the background to stand as a great team, but it can also avoid radio broadcasting. This year he played in six matches, losing twice to Manchester City, two more to Porto and one to the suffering Marseille, on which he made his only victory with a goal in 93 ‘, at “Karaiskaki”. It was, in fact, the team with the worst attack of the 32 groups and the team with the fewest finals at home …

Now, they dream of a better course in the Europa League and, at the same time, they put up with Marinakis because not only did he not strengthen the team last summer but he weakened it with the … proud sales of Tsimikas and Pontense and the indulgently funny transfers, type Cholebas – and not only. Now, they are dealing with the substance again, accusing the one who constantly tells them that all he knows how to do well is to … stack the many millions he receives from the sales of players and from the participation of Olympiakos in the golden Champions League.


During this week, however, Sloukas showed an ideal reaction. He made his self-criticism, realized his mistakes, the team (the coaching team) helped him to release him and gave a recital! In both Barcelona and Belgrade, his presence was crucial for Olympiacos to get these two valuable doubles. He did not play the perfect games, but he was different, better. He took more initiatives in the attack, took shots, acted without hesitation and was more determined. At every opportunity he went for a drive in the racket, when he was free he performed without a second thought and organizationally distributed generous assists to his teammates, reading his game intelligently.

The quality and value of Kostas Sloukas is a given and no one disputes all this. We will have to understand that he needs time to adapt to a new team, different from the one Fenerbahce was used to, while he will have to establish that he is the new leader of the team. There is no reason to hesitate and worry. He has the trust of everyone!


Retail is virtually closed. Hermetically closed to be precise.

A universal lockdown from the beginning of October – which seemed to be going well – would bring better results and market liberalization today.

Should Jumbo get employees suspended from serving to serve how many customers a day? 100; 150;

And of course since Jumbo can not serve away click, what can small businesses and neighborhood stores say?

Unfortunately click away is a grocery store. A service “we had to say, we had to say”

A crucial blow to her “heart” during the Christmas season.
