So relatively normal service resumes in the Super Lig with an Istanbul team beating one from somewhere else. Galatasaray, whilst not playing particularly well beat Genclirbiligigigigi 1-0 with a goal from the grand old man of Turkish football Hakan Sukur. Looks like we will be staying in 4th place whatever happens in the other games unless Trabzon score a bucket load, which with the odds that Gokdeniz may lay on the game is not impossible!!!!!
Wonder when we will get a sober post from the Kanka's??????
I have been somewhat underwhelmed by the season so far with CimBom stumbling form 1 draw to another and the fiasco in Europe is just embarrassing. At least of we were playing at Ali Sami Yen instead of the Olympic stadium there would be some atmosphere! In part the emotion of the way last season finished with the big spending, no class cheats being pipped at the post by the supposedly bankrupt classy team is unlikely to be topped this season. In fact with the way that Vestel Manisa are playing we could be looking at a champion from outside of the big 3 and the Kadikoy mob. So lets hope that Manisa repeat last years performance tomorrow against the budgies. I have to say I wonder just how long Aziz and his mates in the TFF will allow this situation to carry on, I mean where are all the last minute "penalties" and basketball goals that happened last season????? Oh yes Nobhead is at Besiktas and Anelka is at Bolton, strange how the team is struggling for those kind of advantages with only Alex the deciever left.
I see there is now a FB blog in English although compared to the blogs about the other teams it is of course of lower class. For example the writer appears to believe that that permatanned moron Halak Ulusoy is GS's best supporter....what planet has this guy been living on and how much does he really know about about Turkish Soccer!!!
Anyway must go and celebrate a good day, GS and Man Utd winning, the only downside being that the English equivalent of the budgies, Chavski, complained, whinged and cheated their way to a win as well, just goes to prove that class is independent of money......
