Stuffed canaries


What a great result for Galatasaray today even they do not play until Sunday. Manisaspor's 5-3 win over the team who cannot be named means that when GS beat Rizespor we will be 3 points clear at the top of the Super Lig. Not only did Manisaspor win but they won with style and made the canaries look very ordinary. Maybe they should develop some local talent instead of wanting to buy more than 6 Brazilians.

On that topic the comments made by them are an insult to Turkish players. Saying that being limited to 6 foreign players affects their chances in Europe implies that there are not enough good Turkish players around. Maybe what hurts the chances is that they are simply not good enough to win in Europe plus they have to deal with different referees!

Anyway looks like the English league is now decided after Chelski beating Bolton and Man Utd only drawing with Sunderland. Every time I watch Chelski I feel like I need a shower as they make me feel dirty with their diving and complaining and over reaction, Essien getting Ben Haim sent off being a case in point. When you consider that he almost broke Ben Haim's leg off in the previous match and only get a yellow it just smells of cheating.

Until tomorrow from a warm Cleveland day
