The Yellows performed admirably in what could arguably be one of the most hostile grounds of the entire Greek Super League, fighting champions PAOK for a 2-2 draw. In fact, they maintained the lead for the largest period of the game and were only equalised by a Josip Misic goal in the 9th minute of injury time. The most impressive fact about their recent string of good results however (since before their game at Toumba, they had also beaten Panathinaikos 4-0 at home), is that they had managed to accomplish this without a manager on their bench! The team has been on the hunt for a coach ever since Savvas Pantelidis’ resignation at the beginning of the month, with many being linked to the position (such as former Real Madrid legends Fernando Hierro and Guti), but the club has yet to come to an official agreement with any of them.

Yet another great performance by the judoka who walked away from the Grand Prix in Uzbekistan with the gold medal. This was the fourth gold medal for the 23-year-old in the year and the second in the span of just five months, after winning in Antalya last April. She is rapidly collecting points and has high hopes of making it to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Her win in Uzbekistan was made even more impressive by the fact she was up against the local Gulnoza Matniyazova, with the crowed against her, but she had no problems in scoring two waza-ari and winning the contest.

It has been a difficult time for the captain of the Greek national team. It’s not only the bad behaviour that he displays during the Arsenal games, it’s also a recent string of poor performances that have proven quite costly for Arsenal. In the local derby against Tottenham Hotspur, Sokratis got into a scuffle with Harry Winks near the end of the game, getting a yellow card. While near the end of the game with Watford, when his team was leading by a narrow 2-1, it was his clumsy marking that helped the visitors win a penalty kick and score the crucial equaliser, leaving the Emirates with a single point in their bags. Could it be that the pressure of the Premier League is simply too much for the Greek defender?

His name was the source of a lot of speculation during the previous Formula One season for his controversial move from Red Bull to Renault, yet he has done very little to justify the depths to which the French team have gone to acquire his services. His reaction to last week’s decision to penalise him for his driving in the qualifiers – stating that “they ruined it for him” – and place him on the back of the grid, only makes things worse for the Aussie pilot. So far in the season, his greatest accomplishment has been a fourth place in Monza.
