One Month to go Until Greece

Oh boy. Time for the fun to begin. In 30 days Norway will get to play Greece for both teams' first game of the 2012 WCP Cup. Am I excited? On a scale from from 1 to The Reaction Greece fans had tying France last year, I'm about a 7. It's a big game no doubt, but there are also bigger fish to fry in the Group of Death.

Looking back at some of the comments from last years' posts, I've gotta think that Greece has a bone to pick with this game. I put out a prediction that Greece would do poorly in 2011, like they did in 2010, and that seemed to rub Greece players, or fans, the wrong way. Apparently making the playoffs last year meant they could avenge that awful loss to Norway in the 2007 playoffs.

But lets be real now -there's no way Greece makes the playoffs two straight years. Any average team can get lucky, like Colombia beating Sudan last year, but it takes skill to be consistenly good, and Greece coming out of the toughest group is pretty implausible. I won't guarantee a Norway berth either (although I really like our chances) but we've got a track record that backs us up anyways.

Should be a great first Saturday night of the tournament.

why bother posting when you delete everything i say. I guarantee Greece will beat Norway. Not just a win, i mean, a beating. Your team will not want to step on the field after we start taking each and every one of you out of the game. If you think im trying to get Norway pumped up or psyched, think again, its a warning. You are in Greece's way, you will be run over.

sorry greeks, you're nothing special. Neither are Norway. 2 teams that talk a lot of crap but they have nothing on the field.

Playmaker said...

Haha. Go Greek soccer. No skill, just rugby tactics. No wonder the best skilled players would rather compete for someone else.

Playmaker you shouldn't comment on the lack of skill on the Greeks, as you just described your self aswell!

Playmaker maybe I will forget how to play soccer and rugby tackle you into the net to shut you up! Your one of the worst players in the tournament! I wish I could kick you straight in the chest as you go flying into the net and I cry a warrior's cry "This is SPARTA"

HELLAS! HELLAS! HELLAS!

Playmaker I hope your not considering yourself as one of the best skilled players as your Norway squad doesn't recruit much talent!

Maybe braden does over hype his Norway team, but it is the exact same as what the greeks, italians and many other teams in this competition too.

The greeks talking about bradens skills need to look at there squad. I am no way saying he is good, but he is equally as good as most of the guys on your team.

DB? Does that stand for DOUCHEBAG?
Playmaker, or Braden, whatever he wants to be referred as, keeps picking a bone with the Greeks. He insults our skill and puts himself above us. I know I am looking forward to shutting him up, and I believe many of my fellow Greek will also relish to opportunity to show him what it means to be a Greek!
We Greeks went far last year, and we plan on doing the same and Norway is just a small obstacle in our path!


Again I say HELLAS!

David Brown actually ;) but whatever you like is cool.

As for going far last year, you lost in quarter finals? but i guess that is a huge accomplishment for the Greeks. Don't expect you guys to get out the group this year.

David Brown? Who is David Brown!!
Your probably no better than Braden!

We Greeks should have made it to the semi-finals had it not been for a stumble in the second half vs Laos! We have brought in talent to help us run through this group and we shall prevail!

Hellas will UNITE!!!

LOL. I am not going to waste my time with someone who obviously has no soccer knowledge.

Good luck ;)

hahaha..somebody is pretending to be Greek! Braden why you also pick Greece to make controversy? After all, last year they did make out of their group despite the fact you said they will not win even 1 game!

I meant why you always pick on Greeks!

Braden aint no playmaker, he's more like shit play.

Braden you should chose a new name to post with as your horrid! You have no playmaking sense! I hope that little Greek guy does get a chance to kick you into the mesh as that would be priceless!

Peter said...

heard about this crap today.anyways if anyone wants to say anything to the greek team feel free to do so on twitter, @hellasunited, im the manager of the team, Peter Makris. i can answer your questions there. as you all know anyone could be pretending to be anyone here. FYI, our team doesnt look into this stuff, we are a bunch of guys that come out every year that play hard every year. WE win, we lose, shit happens. Somebody is trying to create problems . Win Lose or tie, Greece will be fine. We leave everything on the field.

Bart is the worst player on Poland. He needs to sit down and shut up. The guy thinks he is all that. These Polish people annoy me.

Till next time.

At the end of the day Julio just toys with the bloggers. If you people haven't caught on to that, I have no idea what is going through your minds. I read the alleged Julio post on this blog and it's just a copy and paste job from the other blog. It's a fake!

the actual greece national soccer team sucks, you guys still riding on your euro win 62 years ago so slap some hellas ball cheese on that for even thinking your a real force you scabie flickers.

We GREEKS will bring a physical presence that will make Norway quiver in their panties. We GREEKS will not only bring a pace that will not be matched by Norway, we will bring intimidation that will make Norway and Playmaker rescind their foolish words!

To you Viking supporter I say in a warrior's cry:
"This is SPARTA"
