Eagle Soup

First of all let me tell you that I am not happy. I missed the match today because of United Airlines incompetence. A delayed flight meant that I landed in San Francisco after the game had finished so I am writing this only knowing the results of the games.

Looks like Galatasaray had a comfortable! win against Besiktas with Hasan Kabze scoring in the last minute. I had thought this match might be slightly easier following Besiktas's efforts during the week in beating the other Istanbul team but it sure looks like they were fresh enough.

This excellent win was of course offset by the other result which means it will be all to play for next weekend. I am of course confident we will win but I am not sure whether I would want to put my house on Denizli, although a draw would be good enough.

So another week of tension, stress and nervousness awaits, I can't wait.

Oh yes. This issue of closing stadiums due to crowd misbeahvior. Whilst I have no problem with them shutting Kadikoy for ever it does seem to me somewhat unfair on the visiting team that their supporters are also banned from the game because of problems with the home support. Surely a way can be found that allows the away team's support to be there. Why are they being punished?

Bye for now,

I too didn't see the match.

I was off at a film festival which I had to attend to appease the wife for allowing me to watch the Ankaragucu match (I'm sure Eski Kanka will get around to writing about it at some stage), but surely you're comments on a "comfortable" win are a bit off the mark.

A last minute goal hardly sounds like comfortable to me.

More tension, Galatasaray or Fenerbahce, last match of the season, who will win the league?

I don't give a damn.

I just added your blog to the external links section in the Wikipedia article on Galatasaray.
