Yes, Kostikos has really done well, both as a Technical Director and as a coach. The only problem with him being a coach is that he was doing such a nice work at the other post, and now there is noone there. And Goumenos is definitely not going to sack him. Much as I want stability, Goumenos is firing people only when they actually have to go. Aggelos had to go; Frieger had to go; and even Karageorgiou had to go as the results prove.
What I'm trully excited are our young players:
Fernandez is growing day by day into a great goalkeeper. He still makes the odd missjudgement here and there as all young goalkeepers but his saves more than make up for it. We finally have a proper
Karypidis is slowly but steadily becoming a solid defender. He's still bit reckless but his man-marking and heading ability are really something and he'll improve even more. And for a center-back he has VERY good passing.
Balafas comes from 3rd division and takes a starting spot right away, and he's only 19... The kid is cool as ice, always making nice little passes and having a tactical awareness 30 year old players would envy.
Christodoulopoulos... Such an explosive player, able to play on either wing or up front, and he's only 18. He's going to become a very complete player.
And then there are Shikabala
It's all very exciting.
