So here we are again. Saturday football and all to play for.
But first the Husband is in mourning after the events of this morning in London. Man Utd lost to Chelski and so Chelski became Champions again. Anyway as the Husband says when they have won eight titles, a couple of doubles and a treble then and maybe not even then will we consider them worthy opponents. Hopefully by then Roman will be tired of his toy and Mourinho's head will have exploded with arrogance!!
As for Ferreira I hope he gets the treatment he deserves after the crude foul that has maybe put Rooney out of the World Cup Finals.
Anyway on to more important things.
Besiktas won last night which means that Trabzon need to win to go back into third place which hopefully means they will give the Kadikoy mob a hard time. Let us see.
So Gerets took my advice and the Galatasaray team to play Ankaraspor is the one that should have started last week, Hasan and Saidou excepted. Ergun was back and Ugur and Ferhat out, not that they are bad players but we need experience right now, although Gerets still followed his habit of giving young players experience by including "genc" Aydin.
Galatasaray started brightly with Ayhan going close after just one minute. A few minutes later the referee missed what could have been a penalty for handball as Galatsaray pressed for a goal. Hakan then was a touch late for a cross, something a few years ago he would have reached I think. Jabba the Hut then totally misskicked in front of goal.
Winston no. 5, haydi cimbom....
11mins. A well worked free kick and Goaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllll Sasa Ilic, yes yes yes.
14 mins. Ayhan corner and Goaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllll Hakan Suker
"You're not singing, you're not singing, you're not singing any more, you're not siiinnging any more!!!!!"
Cigar no. 1.
Anakaraspor threatened briefly with "Shaken, not stirred" from a corner when the GS defence went to sleep but so far so good!
35 mins. Gooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllll Yeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssssssss Trabzon scored.
Pulse rate 200, blood pressure high, stress level higher......
Necati then went close and almost at the same time a disallowed goal in Trabzon, wipe sweat off brow!!!
Half time and everything looks good for a 3 point lead with 2 matches to go.
After a fortifying cup of tea and a quick look at Fox Soccer Channel where Blackburn just scored against Charlton I'm back and ready for the second half.
The second half started off similar to the first with Galatasaray stroking the ball around comfortably and no real threat from Ankaraspor. Meanwhile Trabzon hit the post twice on 30 seconds and really should have been 2-0 up. Galatasaray seem to have taken the foot off the gas which may prove expensive. But then Necatis should have scored on a one on one with the keeper but stuffed it up and Tuncay scored in Trabzon damn, damn, damn after the ball had gone out, typical!!!
Winston No. 15
Mondragon then almost gifted a goal to Jabba the Hut and at the same time a Trabzon player was carried off after being smacked in the head and no-one penalized. Of course having reduced Trabzon to ten men the bastards then scored a clearly offside goal. The same assistant referee making the mistake. And then another possibly offside goal was allowed by the referees. Terrible referee performance. Then Trabzon got one straight back. 2-3.
75 mins. Gooooooooaaaaaaallllll Ilic, 3-0.
80 mins. Gooooooooaaaaaallllll Hasan Kabze, 4-0.
Come on Trabzon.
Winston No. 25.
Suddenly the referees in Trabzon remember the offside rules but only when Trabzon have the ball though.
Damn, damn, damn, once again referee mistakes gift 3 points to Kadikoy. How many times has that happened this season, too many. In a game where Trabzon were comfortably on top three dabatable decisions cost the game and once again leaves me frustrated and angry despite a good Galatasaray performance.
Still its not over yet.
Same points and two games to go, this is going to the wire....
