New faces and the season starts already!!!!

With a new coaching team in place the transfers are starting to dribble in. Mustafa Sarp has been recruited from Bursaspor presumably as cover/option for Ayhan who looked knackered at the end of last season as he had to run the entire midfield by himslef as Arda looked moody on the touchline.

Gokhan Zan has been snapped up on a free from Besiktas. Not a huge fan but would be a good replacement or partner for Servet depending on whether Servet heads to France or not.

Lots of rumours as usual and lots of the fringe players coming and going but nothing else major on the horizon.

The squad is already back in training as the season starts already on July 16th with the 3rd Qualifiying round match for the Ueropa League against Tobol from Kazakhstan and the second leg on July 23rd. Lets hope Rijkaard does his research as these kind of teams are a banana skin waiting to happen sop early into the season.

Hey Gulay, as an Aussie fan, I'm wondering why Harry Kewell hasn't been playing for Cimbom in their pre-season nor their Europa League match against the Kazakhstani team? Any info u can share with us?
