Well I think I almost got the pain and agony out of my system with my last three rants/posts. However the result still niggles but what the hell, nothing can be done to change the result so Galatasaray have to let it go and look forward. Lets face it Galatasaray had a bad day at the office, the kind where the water cooler spills all over you, the copier is always out of paper, the last donut was stolen by the lard ass from marketing and the coffee you keep making is always empty by the time you go for a cup!!!!! We all have them and football teams are no different. All you can do is treat it as a one off and look forward to the next day!!!
I notice that a lot of media types are already awarding the Chamionship to the team from Istanbul who is not Besiktas. WHY? Galatasaray are level on points and are only in second place because of goal difference. So why all the gloom and doom. There are still three games left and Trabzon away is not a game I would like to pin the Championship on.
Even Eric Gerets seems to have been affected by it saying that whilst the Championship is still possible it is more difficult now. Come on Eric you should be encouraging the players, just concentrate on winning the last three games and don't worry about the team from Istanbul who is not Besiktas.
Actually I would be more worried if I was a team from Istanbul that is not Besiktas supporter. Considering how much money has been spent on players and other unspecified items to be level on points with Galatasaray who could not even pay their players at various points this season would be far more worrying to me. I mean if Galatasaray can do as well as they have despite all of their troubles what a waste of money to keep level with us! And all of your goals scored by foreigners, what a wonderful development centre for Turkish players Kadikoy is not.
Just wanted to send my sympathy to the Galatasaray supporters who ended up in hospital after being attacked before and after the match due to the crazy police decision not to escort them to the stadium. Don't the TFF and the Kadikoy lot think Turkish football has a bad enough image after the Switzerland game, do they want Turkish Club sides banned from Europe as well! (I do remember Leeds!). Why make more problems for ourselves. Gecmis Olsun to those injured and I hope you are cheered when we lift the Championship.
Its not all over....
