When the paintings light fires…

The… portraits of three Panathinaikos leaders, who adorn the mantra of the stadium on Alexandras Avenue, were covered yesterday (front page!) By Viktoras Mitropoulos’s weekly newspaper “APOPSI” and in fact with a photo, which shows Pavlos Giannakos in Europe ), George Kalafatis (the founder of PAO) and Apostolos Nikolaidis and with the title: “Where is G. Vardinogiannis Mr. Malakate?”

On the occasion, I remembered some details that the modern Panathinaikos fans clearly ignore.

First, the father of the current inspirer of the portraits, Giannis Malakates (man – executive body – of Nikolaidis – Mantzevelakis…), had given a number of battles in the assemblies of the association (in the underground “tomb of the Hindu”) with the object of non-membership and Thanasis Giannakopoulos, mainly of the former, whom the hegemon Apostolos Nikolaidis was obviously afraid of. Of course, it was the time when it was easier for you to win the first lottery number than to be accepted and a member of PAO Γ General Assembly Σ

Secondly, when -at last- the Historian of the course of Panathinaikos AO will deal with the ‘phenomenon’ Apostolos Nikolaidis. That is, the man who -as it seems- I owe God, managed the club for several decades (with the exception of the 7 years of the junta), without offering a single drachma for the greatness of the club, from his huge fortune (softex klp factory). finally, that with his decision to chase the GREATEST TALENT OF ALL TIMES WHICH THE ASSOCIATE SHOWED, at the age of only twenty, that is, Angelos Messaris, ostensibly for political reasons, but essentially because he did not want to give a small percentage to the players the profits of huge receipts. It is as if the administration with its authoritarianism filled the stands and not the players.

The loss of Messaris, of course, cost titles to the club, for almost two decades, leaving Olympiakos threshing…
