Another Derby Ruined…

Yep, surprise surprise… Another derby ruined by refs added to the list which seems to be getting longer and longer…

 

Sure, we ended up losing 0-4 at home, and sure, with such an inexperienced team in such a high profile match, I guess we couldn’t have expected much. But for once, can we as fans of AEK and fans of the sport just see a derby played by the teams without controversial calls? Can we not just see a game where the winner is the better team and nothing more? Will that every happen in this country..?

We all know that that wont in fact happen, not for a while… But its a shame to see poor officiating ruin so many matches every weekend like this. Football is such a beautiful sport, where every team has just as good a chance before the game as any other, when they’re allowed to play their game. Just look at Greece in 2004.

Once again, I didn’t see the match over the weekend, but it sounds like we had a few calls that didn’t go our way, and even most neutral observers we’re commenting on the terrible job the ref did. I dont know, I havent managed to catch a replay yet. And I won’t even comment on whether I believe it was fixed or not… who know. What I know though is that you can’t expect AEK to have a chance at winning when they have to play with 10 players for 60 minutes and have the first goal scored against scored from a penalty.

Going by what Linen and other fans have said, it sounds like we played quite well. And even if we couldn’t keep up, it sounds like the boys at least gave the game all they could. Its just too bad that with this game, like so many others this season, we didn’t see any reward at all for the effort they put in.

But, either way, the worst is over. PAO and Oly games out of the way, “easier” teams from now on for a little while, hopefully we can start grabbing some points.

  1. agree 100% I saw the highlights and Oly just dont give a shit. Its like kicking a dying dog and not only that they will spit on you too.The ref did not need to do what he did. We were competitive against a far superior side on paper , it just makes no sense and could have been more entertaining than what it was without the ref stealing the spotlight real b***shi*****..?? real pity. Lets hope we can get some consistency going now and great to see the support even in the difficult times.

  2. It’s been 17.5 years since we have been awarded a penalty against the junta that controls Greek football, the destroyers of Greek football.
