When is handball not handball

When its the 88th minute in Kadikoy apparently. My goodness I think the referee was probably the only person who thought Turaci's use of the elbow to deflect the ball away from Hasan Kabze was not a deliberate handball. I challenge any of the Kadikoy mobs rabble out there to justify otherwise, if you do then you obviously cannot be a true football supporter. Plus Alex, what a diving complaining cheat.

Anyway it was the typical game of two halves. Galatasary were definitely second best in the first half but were by far the better side in the second half and created virtually all the chances with Umit and Necati denied by Volkan. Despite the loss it was good to see Galatsasaray play some better football, which is a good sign for the rest of the season.

Unfortunately it means there is now 9 points gap at the top of the Lig but think back to last season it was somewhat the same so it does not mean the seaons is over but some of the other teams have got to step up and kick the budgies off their perch.

bye for now....

The handball incident.... can't comment on yet another controversial refereeing decision. I didn't have a chance to see the match due to work.

However, I've said this before many times and I'll probably be saying it again on Friday night..... are you listening Hikmet Bey ?!

The only way to play the Kadikoys, especially on their own patch, is to shut up shop for the 1st half and to hell with entertaining the fans.

The name of the game is to frustrate the players and the Kadikoy fans.

Tactics can then be fine-tuned in the 2nd half slowly slowly and hopefully the frustration factor works for the 1st breakaway goal followed by another as more frustration creeps in.

There you go !! So, if I ever take over the reins at ANKARAGUCU you know what to expect when we come to visit Ali Sami !!!
