:shrug: Maybe I'm of no help what-so-ever but most of it just sounded like cheers and jeers......and some forms of "ole ole's" like you get at football (soccer) matches. Having said that, I don't speak Greek so can't pick out words like perhaps our Greek friends on this forum can :D

I can hear only two cheers. The one is "Hellas ole ole I never stop to sing" and the other one is "Lena you can qualify". Of course they sound much better in Greek, when they are translated they are I think they are loosing they power.

thx!

And what are they in greek? Hellas ole ole isn't the prob of course,
but 'I never stop to sing'? must be like 'pote de stamato na tragoudo' then, but I can't hear any of those words in the chants, so I assume it must be something else

and 'Lena you can qualify', is it something like 'Eleni, bories, bories na bokrifies'?

I attended lessons in evening school for a couple of years, so I can understand it and speak it a little bit, but not good enough to have a decent greek conversation with my family there (my grandfather is a greek)
