PAOK TV Classics – Top 5
Another day, another… day at home. And another day that PAOK attempts to keep you company and help you pass the time with our most popular videos down the years from the club’s YouTube channel which for the last eight years has been the link between the supporters and getting a glimpse into everyday life at the Dikefalos tou Vorra.
When the subject of football is on the menu, it’s only right that there would be some highlights of match action high up in the list. Highlights from some of the most important matches. In the top five, however, there’s also representation from the PAOK Academy, as well as some scenes of incredible atmospheres at the Toumba in games gone by. So then, let’s travel back in time a little and relive the top five most viewed videos.
5. Barcelona vs. PAOK Under-12 1-2
In 2014 the Under-12 team lived the dream. The squad traveled to Barcelona and faced the Blaugrana. Even though the match was a friendly, it was a big challenge for Dikefalos tou Vorra’s young aces, who were keen to test their mettle against one of the best clubs in the world.
The final result was a 2-1 win for PAOK and an unforgettable experience. It’s no mean feat to best the the best on their home ground!
4. The Katsour Show!!!
A total of 16 days of pre-season preparation in a row. It doesn’t take long before the side effects to kick in. For some, such as Kostas Katsouranis and Stefanos Athanasiadis, those effects were a little bit more intense.
In the summer of 2013, the pre-season period was a bit of a marathon. And on the last day, the two players in question decided to get involved with the channel. They jumped on their bikes, took the microphones with them, and got the PAOK TV cameras to follow them. The result? This hilarious video below.
3. The Toumba on fire from above
The first time PAOK TV used a drone for filing was six years ago in 2014. The match was not chosen by accident. It was the Greek Cup semi-final against Olympiacos, at a sold out Toumba, with the 2-1 result at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium leaving the tie delicately balanced.
The hunger for the PAOK family to win a title after an 11-year trophy drought created the context for what was an incredible atmosphere at the Toumba for the highly-anticipated return leg.
PAOK TV was on hand to capture from above everything, including the famous Ring of Fire.
2. The behind the scenes cameras from PAOK vs Olympiacos (1-0)
The semi-final at the Toumba against Olympiacos in 2014 was another representative in our Top 5. After getting a taste of what happened on the pitch from above, let’s go and check out what happened backstage, as captured by the PAOK TV cameras.
From the team’s arrival at the stadium, the key moments before kick-off, and a time lapse of the Ring of Fire, to shots from a go pro on the ball boys, and the reactions from the dugout during the match, all in one hugely enjoyable video.
1. Highlights from PAOK vs Panathinaikos
It’s one of those matches which will always remain etched in the memory forever. One of those times when you want to talk about a great past match you went to, you’ll always include. It was one of those great comebacks that anyone who was there would love to talk about again and again.
PAOK welcomed Panathinaikos to Thessaloniki in the second leg of the Greek Cup in the 2016-17 season having lost 2-0 to the Athens club at Leoforos Alexandras.
The Dikefalos tou Vorra, however, has shown that it’s a team that is made to handle the tough and challenging times. With goals from Pelkas, Matos, Shakhov and Prijovic, the home side put the Greens to the sword by a 4-0 scoreline and progressed to the final.
