Level pegging

Kayseri away was always going to be a hard match and it was made even harder because all of the strikers were injured. So all in all a 0-0 draw was a good result, even though we perhaps should have taken advantage of the fact that Kayseri had a man sent off in the 60th minute. Keita looked tired as if he was still adjusting to playing in the cold after the Africa Cup of Nations but all in all a satsifactory result which kept Kayseri 4 points behind us.

Next week is Ankaraspor which means three points and a rest for the team which is perhaps fortunate as it will give the medical squad time to get the various damaged players back to health so maybe Servet, Hakan Balta, Kewell and Jo will be available in two weeks time. IN between we have the second leg of the Cup match and we need to overturn a 1-2 deficit against Antalya which even with the shortage of players should be achievable.

Then Sunday I watched the FB match against Diyarbakir. What a bunch of whining, complaining, cheats was on show.....obviously Aziz will be upset as despite the referees best efforts to let FB win due to continuous free kicks awarded for phantom fouls it did not work and in fact almost backfired as a 1-1 draw was the result which means the Kadikoy mob are still one point ahead.

R─▒jkaard is tactically and Neeskens is strategically the best. GS players knows that. This year is still a 'experimental year'. Next year will be different.
FB are trained by a German, famous for Shwalbes and Complaining...they run like idiots. GS will kick ass next year. Don't worry. Rijkaard signed for 2 years. Next year, with one good Dutch player (Huntelaar, Hettinga) GS will show the Dolmus drivers of FB how to drive a real race.))
Will Hiddink sign for TR team? Would be good!.) Otherwise, Cruyff is available, Gullit, van Basten etc. TR needs quality and players needs the freedom to play qualified soccer. Not running like Germans!
Si presto!.)
