So it's official....Zagorakis will hang them up for Greece in the summer

Well Theo was part of a team that we will all remember always.

However there's something to be said of a guy who bows out when HE sees he probably cannot continue to make a real impact for the team. UNLIKE SOME OTHERS who continue to drag out the inevitable (I shall not name names).

At least he's bowing out when he's still somewhat on top.

He will always be OUR CAPTAINthough.

To pio omorfo pragma sto kosmo einai na agapas tin AEK!
Det Vackraste i den har varlden, ar att alska AEK!
Самая прекрасная вещь на свете, это любить АЕК!
La plus belle chose dans le monde est l'amour pour l'AEK!
La cosa piu' bella nel' mondo e' di amare l'AEK!
Dünya'da en güzel şey, AEK aşkı.
A legszebb dolog a világon az AEK iránti imádat.

Well said!

Zagorakis wanted to retire already after the match with Georgia. But Gagatsis and The Old German Dinosaur convinced him to stay so he becomes the "link" between the new generation and the old guard of the new national team The Old German Dinosaur would build. Of course, this was an unrealistic plan since 1) there will be no new generation to link with and 2) The Old German Dinosaur would always play him anyway.

One more time Zagorakis leads with his example.
