I guess all good things must, unfortunately, come to an end. I was not expecting our win streak to come to an end after winning the previous match 7-0, but I suppose a loss would have made things worse.
Sounds like the entire day was simply not the best, partly due to (and this certainly is no excuse for the draw, though it doesn’t help either) the terrible condition of the pitch in which we had to play. My father told me that the stadium was so bad that, at times, when the ball was kicked too far it would end up on the streets… I can’t help but remember how many times that happened during breaks at school.
I do wish I had some good news at this point, but things only seem to get worse. Not only will we be forced to sit out Cordero during one of our upcoming matches due to having accumulated too many yellow cards, but Barbosa also suffered an injury during today’s match which saw him have to leave the game. Not sure yet what the status is regarding the injury, and how long he’ll be out for, but I do hope hes back soon as he seems to have found some form over the past couple games.
The critique from AEK365 was not too positive, especially compared to last week’s critique. Players in all positions, except for keeper Anestis, seemed to have played rather poorly. Georgeas, who had been out for quite a while, failed to make a good impression and was unfortunately considered one of our weaker players on the pitch. Hopefully that’s more a matter of lack of playing time rather than anything else, though I do fear his playing days may soon be coming to an end.
