Use the automated Google Translate plugin. The site is a joy. Translation can be a bit erratic eg "The only positive thing I can think of is that [Brighton] will hardly play the tambourine like the Belgians. Or maybe not?"

I just put my linguistic detective hat on and tried to find an idiomatic Greek phrase about tambourines but drew a blank.

I can only assume that the in the Champions League qualifier, the Antwerp fans' percussion section wasn't up to scratch.

Don't underestimate AEK - they have a long and proud history in European competitions (European Cup QF - UEFA Cup SF - UEFA Cup Winners Cup QF x2 - and they went through a CL group stage unbeaten against Roma, Genk and Real Madrid)
This.

Every game we’ll be difficult

Interesting take on why europa league tickets are often cheaper than PL tickets in England 😅🤔 (Not sure if that's even true or not!)

In England and in the majority of cases, the European tickets are cheaper than the Premier and much easier to find, as the duration does not catch Europe. This is how life is structured that even the most loyal fans on the weekend, they find it difficult to go in the middle of the week, that's why they don't commit in the first place...

Hey guys, Greek-Aussie AEK fan here. It's fair to say that the Greeks back in Greece viewed you guys as the hardest team in the group, and after last nights result I would say that we are now all well and truly sh*tting ourselves lol. We are currently in a bit of a form slump but at our best we play a high press high possession game, can't see how that is going to work against Brighton, will be interesting to see if Almeyda decides to play a more negative brand of football. Either way here is hoping for a good game and that we somehow manage to get second spot behind you guys. P.s I don't support a prem side but I always love seeing Man Utd get done at Old Trafford!

Mate I appreciate you giving us some love, but that team in 03' that went undefeated in CL had 7 players that won the Euros in 2004. This current team is good but i don't think they are at that level, now if they pull of a miracle on Thursday I will change my mind.

I've had a quick look at our visitor's form:
22/08/23 - Antwerp 1-0 AEK Athens (Champions League Qualifier)
26/08/23 - AEK Athens 1-1 Panserraikos (League)
30/08/23 - AEK Athens 1-2 Antwerp (Champions League Qualifier)
03/09/23 - Volos 2-3 AEK Athens (League)
17/09/23 - AEK Athens 1-1 Olympiacos (League)

The recent results haven't been particularly great for the Greek champions and neither has their recent injury record with both centre-backs ruled out (Vida & Moukoudi)
