    Default Marios Siampanis

    As is often the case with unwanted players of both clubs, there is word in the Greek press that our goalkeeper Marios Siabanis (19, he'll be 20 in late September), may find his way to Nottingham.

    Siabanis belonged to PAOK until this summer. He was widely considered to be the best Greek goalkeeper of his age along with Antonis Stergiakis (both were internationals since the age of 15). But the latter made the bold move of going abroad to find first-team experience at the age of 16 (!), while Siabanis patiently waited for his chance at PAOK. That chance never came, although he was the highest-earning academy player of PAOK, so Siabanis decided not to renew his contract and signed with us.

    He was supposed to be the second-choice keeper, but the manager trusted the 16-year-old Tzolakis more in pre-season, as I've mentioned before, and finally decided to get a more experienced keeper as no. 2, with Tzolakis as no. 3. Siabanis is therefore on the loan list.

    He had a weird pre-season, with some really spectacular saves, but also equally spectacular blunders.

    I don't think the Forest story is plausible: he's too old for the U23, and can only fit in the first team as no. 3, behind Muric and Pantilimon, provided Steele leaves.
