Football is an amazing game. Yesterday morning there was all to play for oin the Super LIg and th EPL. At 2.15pm Eastern Time the EPL is finished for the season with Mancehster United claiming the 9th Championship in 15 years and Chavski finishing second after a draw with L'Arse. And the SuperLig is pretty much done and dusted as well. Looks like all the money spent over the last few seasons on refer....I mean players has finally paid off for the kadikoy mob short of an implosion of massive standards, whihc cold happen but is looking more and more unlikely, unfortuantely.
Of copurse Galatsaray's shprtcomings have not excatly helped this season and today's match was a snapshot of the season. Dodgy defending giving up a soft goal early in the match then meant we had to chase the game for the next 80 minutes against a side, which could be labeled as Besiktas old boys, was desperate not to lose to avoid relegation. Mind you CimBom had chances to score but did not take them, Necati in particular and why Hakan Sukur was playing I really do not know as he just confused Umit and Necati.
As for the match at Iononu stadium yesterday, Besiktas totally dominated the game but appeared to have left their shooting boots in the changing rooms and even when they got shots on target they managed to hit the goalie. As for the complaints about the TFF having some kind of plan to upset the kadikoy mob, well the extremely indulgent and lenient treatment of Kezman yesterday should put paid tp that myth. The only time he stayed upright was when he scored the goal, he spent the other 85 mins feigning injury, praying to the ref to book people and generally behaving like a petulant spoilt prick. I noticed as well Tumer having a chat with the ref as they came out at half time, I guess the converstaion was along the lines of, look in 15 mins time there is a red card for one of these balck and whites and then on 25 mins its a poenalty when Alex trips over his own laces by the corner flag okay, and the cheques in the post.......
This weekends results were a pity because it was developing into an exciting finish but now its hardly worth bothering with. The only thing I hope is that the team who have scored more goals, won more games and earned more points since Super Lig started and therefore are the most successful win in two weeks time to put the other lot in their place.
