    The part I really liked was the quote: "It’s not theatre for us, it is actual training, training in the academy". Only too often, working out for kids with disabilities is treated as something 'soft'. But what these kids really need is feeling the stress of real training as a team with specific goals.

    My son quit football and now trains as a runner. In the stadium where he trains there is also a club for disabled children. There was one particular little blind girl whose personal trainer shocked me initially. He pushed the little girl beyond what I thought were the reasonable limits of her condition. Again and again, he made her jump, run, run faster, follow his lead, with the lack of mercy of a Nazi officer. But soon I realized that this was precisely what the girl wanted. The joy on her face when the trainer told her that she had surpassed her previous time was revealing.

    A good attacking left back, and the second Iranian in our team (both bought from another Greek team).

    The interesting detail about the new guy is that he does not speak a word of English or any other language other than his native Farsi.

    Funnily enough, one of the projects I’m working on at the moment is a joint-venture via our subsidiary in Tehran.

    Things there are getting a bit tasty.

    6 months in Europe, learn English, have a decent World Cup, and sell him to Forest.

    I like it.

    Could you afford him, with all that money you spend on terminating managers' contracts?

    The Spanish like to look hard but when you catch them hanging out the back of your shag/date/GF on holiday they all run a mile.

    It's the twinkle in your eye and the bulge in your trousers that makes them run Andrew.

    He didn't want to be the meat in the sandwich

    I walk around like everything is fine but deep down, in my shoe, my sock is sliding off.

    He's still a member of the Board; I doubt he does any work for us anymore though. Perhaps he was over here in order to sign Hult.

    Olympiacos, along with Lefski Sofia from Bulgaria and Aalborg from Denmark, and with the participation of the International Organization for Migration, organizes some sport events for immigrants and refugees.

    It is not the first such initiative. In the height of the refugee crisis, players of Olympiacos handed out food, clothes and sports gear to refugees at the port of Piraeus and during the international conferences on football and social inclusion co-organized with Harvard in September there was a football game between refugees and a team made up of speakers in the congress, members of the board, old players and Marinakis junior:

    Playing against AEK and could have a big impact on the title.

    Looks like Oly have been watching us defend corners. They go 1-0 up and with a few minutes to go they concede a late corner to a defender completely free in the box.

    Edit: Oh dear, they have just conceded again. Lost it 2-1. Botia sent off for squaring up to the referee then pushing him after he allows the AEK goal.

    Title is surely against them now.

    Yep. Perhaps it was about time. I hate complacency, it invariably makes you worse. And we've becoming worse and worse over the last couple of years, out of sheer lack of effort. Going uphill is more in our club dna.

    This year has been a combination of terrible summer choices (from the manager to the roster), corrected by more bad choices, and an incredible climate in what is going on behind the scenes of Greek football (which is sometimes as important as what is happening on the pitch); let's say that PAOK will win the title because the powers that be want them to win the title.

    Away to AEK Athens in the Cup. Nearly 2/1 to win. What do you think GBG? I fancy a flutter.

    I don't think. The year has practically ended, for several reasons both related to Olympiacos and unrelated to us, so anything goes. We're going without a manager incidentally, he urgently went to the hospital with appendicitis.
