We didn't have a bet in 1982, neither did Cyprus. Only if one had friends in England to play for.
But there were several competitions and one of them was in the department stores of Lambropoulos.
So I go one morning and fill out a form as follows:
Make the final Italy - Germany and the exact score be 3-1.
At what stage did I do this?
In the phase that was going to play Italy - Brazil and everyone considered Brazil as the favorite. The record became 3-2.
At the same time Germany had not cleared their qualification. It was the groups of three teams and England - Spain remained. Had England won they would have gone first, but it ended 0-0.
Because I was supporting England and England was good back then, it seems strange now that I took Germany and not England but I did anyway.
But the case still had a future, the semi-finals remained. In these, Italy beats Poland 2-0 and in Germany - France it becomes a thriller, 3-3 in extra time and Germany goes through to penalties.
Then we go to the final, which ended 3-1 in favor of Italy, of course, and in the ninety minute.

What betting performance would this prediction have, you tell me? 100 to one I say.
So I go to Lambropoulos sure that I will receive my prize, a Toyota car.
I'm going to the accounting office, but keep calm!
No, sir, you didn't win, they tell me, a lottery was held and Mrs. Losanda won!

What to do ; I left but what happened here?
The Uruguayan Losada was the big outside right of the gabbers as he was known in the 70's (to the band, to the band comes Losada).
When he hung up his shoes he may have decided to settle in Greece, I don't know.
How many Losandas do we have here in Greece?
Don't tell me we have. If they are called Gomez or Martinez, we will have a body but Losanda?
So my Toyota was a gift from the Gavro establishment to Mrs. Losanda.

    No, I don't like it....I just had a black one here at home naked and he told me that for every match I write he will also put on a piece of clothing!!

    Strange things in Peristeri
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    nice things you say
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    I see that one of the 2 beams is lower by 6 cm. We will object if they give us back the 2 points because we had 2 beams there
  • PANATHA PANATHA:
    Seriously now...doesn't it impress you that they saw the difference of 4-5 centimeters with the naked eye?
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    Seriously now I'm really very impressed that they discovered it and how. I don't remember that in competitions they take a tape measure and measure the beams here, how did they discover it?
  • PANATHA PANATHA:
    That's why I wrote strange things
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    nice things, but of course you've gotten used to foreigners, you who don't have anything unexpected, those are the nice things, you've lost your sense of football : paidi:
  • PANATHA PANATHA:
    I read that they objected to taking the matches on paper...
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    did AEK do such a thing?
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    I read somewhere that the regulation says to take it anyway
  • PANATHA PANATHA:
    yes, because it is the responsibility of the host
  • Ertzan Ertzan:
    I know that AEK doesn't take matches on paper, it doesn't want to : paidi:
  • PANATHA PANATHA:
    Not that it will be resolved, but the matter is very serious.... 10 other matches have been held at the Peristeri stadium before, and of course we don't know what condition the beams were in then

    Are there teams that take matches on paper??

    Turkey's matches have all been postponed due to the big earthquake.
