Galatasaray 1-0 Ankaragucu.
So that another three points in the bag depiste playing in fromt of an empty Ali Sami Yen, well almost empty. Fatih Terim and a couple of other self important types had been allowed ion to watch the form team of the Turkish Super Lig.
Super goal from Lincoln on 22 minutes won the game.
1-0 was kind on Ankargucu though, on another night Umit could and should have had a couple instead of being carried off following a pathetic body block by some long haired girly type named Emre.
Here is the team.
Orkun, Uğur, Servet, Song, Volkan, Ayhan, Sabri, Lincoln, Arda, Hakan, Ümit
Similar team to last week with just Lincoln coming back after injury. And again a team with only 2 foreigners in the starting 11. Even the three second half substitutes were Turkish. I tell you the youth set up and some good transfers are starting to produce a good squad of players instead of relying on foreign imports at the end of their careers. Of course this could all change through the season but right now its the story.
Even Man Yoo won today, Lincoln obvioulsy having seen the game as he scored with a similar goal to Nani.
All in all a bad weekend for the second city with none of the teams winning. Looks like it will be a long hard season with no water....
