    We had no presence whatsoever in the final third yesterday. Giakoumakis would’ve changed that and likely ruffled some feathers. They looked more uncomfortable playing against him than Kyogo. He deserved his chance and could’ve made a difference. You say one player couldn’t have made the difference. Mate that’s all it can take sometimes!

    not the way we played yesterday, they choked off any ball through the middle. As they done when he came on as well. They had no midfield really, just defended the ball down the middle and made sure to double up on the wings.

    And we were ponderous and slow on the ball before it’d get further up the pitch. We needed to be far better down the pitch, to work those guys in.

    He needs to. He’s missed as many good chances as Maeda recently but isn’t getting as much stick. That’ll change if he keeps that up.

    Yep.

    I like Giakoumakis, but some people seem to think he’s the solution to all our misses. He misses as many chances as anyone else.

    Not that it matters, but just an interesting detail, I read today that the big sexy man is of Romani (or derogative “gypsy”) origin.

    We thought this about him this time last year though, and when he got a run of games, the more he played the more he scored.

    So it’s a question of, for me, is it fair to expect the same level without the game time to get him upto that level?

    GG does miss a lot of chances BUT he’s getting into the position to have a shot at goal so I’m loathe to complain about our Greek alternative to Kyogo.

    Right, get Kyogo back on the jet home, * this national team *, can’t afford to lose Kyogo, GG and Abada all in the space of a few days.

    Injuries starting to pile up a bit in key areas. Shows how important squad depth is. Still think we need a third striker.

    Greek media 2 hours ago: "In today's training held in Larnaca [Cyprus], Giorgos Giakoumakis, who has not yet recovered from his injury, followed an individual [training] program."
