I loved watching them and AEK in the European Cup in the early/mid-90s.
I remember a year when Panathinaikos were close to making it out of the group stage. They had Krzysztof Warzycha upfront. I remember them missing out on the last day of the group stage and I was really disappointe.
At the time, being a Greek Australian, I always supported the Greek teams playing in Europe, regardless of which team it was and despite my Pappou supporting Olympiakos.
Brehme, apologies for me being such a sketchy historian.European Cup semi finalists in 1996. Collapsed in the return home leg vs Ajax unfortunately. Would have been epic to beat Juventus then and be the 1st team to win European Cups in both football and basketball in the same year. Possibly 2nd team to generally win both after Real back then.
Made it out of the groups several times, also played vs Inter when we had Mourinho. His lucky charm is to lose to Panathinaikos at home, he proceeds to win the Champions League the next season
Ever since 1996 Greek football has been spiralling downwards but that last generation brought us the Euro in 2004.
Things only advanced the downtrend in the last 10 years..
