Off with the Tas....

Bloody awful, thats all I can say and if Gulay was posting she would undoubtedly say the same but as she is a tad depressed at the moment about the GS meltdown that has enabled various second rate and substandard teams to claw their sorry asses to the top two places
...actually she has had flu and is not feeling too good hence I am posting on Christmas Eve...

Actually though the last couple of GS matches have completely underwhelmed us...where is the swagger, the fire of the first 10 or 12 matches of the season...I guess injuries might be one reason and fielding a relatively young and inexperienced team but there seems to have been a collective failure of will....and where was Umit Karan on Sunday.....

Still when you consider the money wasted on the Asian side of the Bosphorus to try to ensure success for the so called peoples team. Well the superior types really don't care about the blue collar oiks and once Aslantepe is completed with its decent communications, no Migros in the basement for us, Metro link, good car parking....not a market place in Kadikoy, I mean why are they so proud of that very badly situated stadium anyway....does not even have a sliding roof.....peasants.....

In other news Man Yoo continue to chew at L'Arse's heals in the EPL while Chavski continue to be a fading force with lucky results, and as for the Scousers, f*** em, least there is plenty of footie on the tube this next couple of days, of course here in the Yoo Ess of Ehhh Boxing Day is not a holiday, heathens.... so I had to take a days vacation to have a proper Christmas (had to work a half day today as well, my goodness.) but that will be brightened by a full day of footie...excellent.

Anyway as 2007 peters out all I can say is the Duvel is excellent, the weather fresh, and that football is the stuff of Bill Shankly once said,

"Football is not about life or death.......its more important"

And on that note from Gulay, Leana and I

Feliz Nevidad, Iyi Bayramlar, Mutlu Yillar,


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.....

The Husband.

Another midseason meltdown for GS.

Not enough firepower!

I haven't given up on this year, but it looks like the washed up Brazilians are playing better than the bunch of young Turks.

Happy Holidays!
