  1. avraam papadopoulos is a greek international defender born december 3 1984 (23 years old) recently transferred to greek champions olympiakos from 4th place aris thessaloniki for 2.5 million euros here is a picture of him information from wiki Aris Avraam Papadopoulos is one of the most talented and currently best central defenders in the Greek Championship. He started his professional career with Aris back in 2002 after stepping up from the Aris Youth with another promising attacking youngster- his mate Ethimios Pantelidis. At the beginning of his career, around the age of 17 (even before- including his youth days) he started as an attacking midfielder. Especially in the period between 2003 (obviously not too much time after Avraam's promotion into the first team) and the summer 2006, Aris lived some darker days of their history in Greek football also tangled with some sorts of more-less defensive philosophy of football, financial problems in the club, Avraam Papadopoulos experienced some gradual „demotions“ onto the more defensive positions by his coaches. Firstly back onto defensive midfield, then also right back and finally central defense where he generally plays even nowadays (his CD position has been granted after the summer 2006 roster rebuilding). He is quite tall, with very tough body constitution, but not slow for his physical appearance, with pretty good awareness and tackling, sometimes reckless which leads him to getting yellow cards, but also this can be partially explained by more attacking football of the post-2006 Aris that can expose a defender like Avraam to the situations of must-break the opponents' (counter) attacks. The scorer of several (significant) goals through his career generally by his strong headers and penalties. The best example is his only goal/header in the final qualifiers with Zaragoza for the UEFA Cup group stage at the Kleanthis Vikelidis stadium, which , at the end of the day, turned to be the crucial and historic goal after Aris' loss 2:1 in Spain that ensured Aris the progression to the group stage. Yet he has been sent up in front, whenever Aris needed an extra striker in the dying minutes of (several) matches. As an „Aris kid“ playing for his club, but also with the fact that he experienced dark days as well as lighter, he was one of the fans' favourites logically, also one of the „last Mohicans“ in the club („Mohicans“- figuratively related to the players as Giorgios Koltsidas, Kostas Nebegleras, Avraam Papadopoulos, Giorgios Gougoulias, Ronald Nacho Garcia, Ethimios Kouloucheris, Kristi Vangjeli, retired Petros Passalis, gone Spyros Gogolos... that were with this team in the second division, season 2005/06, as well as the season/s after that, when the club experienced its promotion and then a total rebirth in the first division with good football and higher standing positions). Aris' number 4 is also known for his passion. Now for many years' transfer windows he has been linked to Athenian giants (especially Olympiacos) by media/usually the sports news-papers, but yet has never changed his club. Also as stories were circulating during the last season (2006/07), he had been watched closely by some bigger clubs' scouts like Benfica or Chelsea, recently Zenit of Russia as well. So far his number of caps for his club Aris has been closing in to the margin of 100. Considered as one of the Aris 2007/08 top stars along with Sergio Koke, Ronald Nacho Garcia and recently added experienced super star Marcio Amoroso and a couple of others. Olympiakos On July 4, 2008 the player was transfered to Olympiacos for 2,5 million euros.Olympiakos CFP announced on Friday the 4th of July 2008, the signing of footballer Avraam Papadopoulos from Aris. The player has signed a four year contract. Avraam stated this during a press conference ,"I came to Olympiakos, and not Panathinaikos, because it was the best choice for me. The ideal choice. I would not like to say anything else and it does not make sense to talk about the past. I will work as hard as I can to make the team reach its goals and objectives in both Europe and Greece." International career Greece He had been capped for Greece U-21 for several times. After impressing Greece coach Otto Rehhagel, He was called to the Greek national football team for the first time on February 1, 2008[1] and made his debut in the win over the Czech Republic on February 5. seems like a decent prospect being linked with benfica, chelsea and zenit and chose olympiakos over other greek giants panathinaikos aris also had the third best defensive record in the league last season conceding just 20 goals will surely be a regular for olympiakos and will start to break into the national team last season he started 26/30 games scoring 1 goal 2441 minutes more than any other aris player on the database rated 86 thanks

  4. TOMAS NECID Tomas necid is a czech under 19 international footballer currently playing for jablonec of the gambrinus liga on loan from champions slavia praha midway through the season jablonec were struggling for goals they actually finished with the joint secont lowest goals scored in the league but if it wasn't for necid they would have finished as bottom scorers during the second part of the second half of the season 18 year old necid managed to rack up 7 starts 6 sub appearances 13 games in total 758 minutes and managed 5 goals ending the season as jablonec top scorer on the database rated 78 and is participating in the UEFA european under 19 championships this summer were czech republic are one of the favourates and if this guy carries on his form and keeps playing next season can see him hitting 85+ i used the search tool and it didnt come up with nothing and i think he deserved his own dedicated thread please take it easy guys this is the first thread i have made:p oh and on the database of course rated 78 can get him for around 1.4 million
