Since the end of the regular season it seems that there is a huge void in my life. I guess every football supporter feels the same. Normally this lasts until August which means that during the summer you get some kind of normal life back, Saturday is not spent watching Fox Soccer Channel from 7am to 5pm, one match after another for example. Instead you have to cut the grass, do the gardening and try and be a functioning member of society again. At least this year there is the small matter of the World Cup though to keep us occupied.
For Galatsaray everything seems quiet on the transfer front at the moment but if you believe the guys over at Galatasaray.com every half washed up has been will soon be playing at Ali Sami Yen.
On the other hand a few of the players who performed so well this season have renewed their contracts. Hakan Sukur has signed a new contract which I am happy for Hakan, after his efforts this season, but this should not stop the club looking for new talent.
As for the World Cup its seems that Wayne Rooney will not make it. Even if you don't support England this is a pity because he is one of the best players in the World and he was in excellent form. Just typical that a Chelski player caused the injury! I am of course devastated that Turkey will not be there, but they had their chances and could not produce when they needed to. So who will I support?? The Husband is English so there is significant pressure there, Oz Kanka has been suggesting that I should support the other team playing in gold, Oztralia or someone. However I think I may just start off with the USA, after all I live here and they are badly supported at the bet of times. Lets face it how can football compete against a bunch of tattooed giants earning more than some of the countries GDP that will be at the World Cup. So I think the USA gets my vote for now.
Anyway time to go, have to take the dogs for a walk before it gets too hot, Cleveland just warmed up this week and its 30C today!!!
