Couple of days

Well the snow did not last for too long. Actually we are having one of the mildest January's for a long time here in NY/NJ. Today it was 10C, unheard of for January.....I am sure old man winter has a surprise up his sleeve. Meanwhile in Turkey soccer happens with piles of snow next to the pitch.

After a routine demolition of the SuperLig whipping boys, Ankaragucu or 3points' r yourscu, we came back to earth at the weekend with a crap loss away at Bursa. Seriously they were bad and we were even worse. Hardly any shots on goal and a boring match. GTHe only good thing is that I can now stream from my laptop to the TV screen through a HDMI cable and get LigTV HD!!!!! Of course if we won it would be better.

And then of course the property tax dodgers beat Man Utd in the FA Cup so the Husband was even more grumpy than usual. He was in a better mood today though as Dorran Gibson made his most telling contribution to the seaon by socring the only goal for Everton against Citeeh, while the Utd B team disposed of the Potters 2-0. So all level and GS remain ahead of the Kadikoy trash.

Winter Starts

Today we had the first snow of the winter in NJ. Well we had snow back in October but that was weird. Started during the night and its still snowing right now. Not too much though just a modest 3 to 4 inches and give the fact that the weather forecast is anticipating warmer weather this week I doubt this will be around for too long. Thankfully we bought a new car last year which has All Wheel Drive so bring on the snow!!!

I see the clubs threatened by relegation die to their corrupt practices are lobbying for points deductions rather than relegation. As a GS supporter I propose that any club where individuals are convicted of match fixing should be shut down and the stadium redeveloped as a pig farm and all their trophies and results cancelled. Because clubs like that bunch of shit from Kadikoy seem to think they are above the law and should be erased from history.

A little bit of daylight

Well, well.

Galatasary came out of the traps following the winter break and won their first two matches, although the one against Samsun yesterday was more of a struggle than it should have been. 2-0 down after the first half, GS reacted well and ended up with a 4-2 win. Some good substitutions especially Sabri who was having a very poor match in the first half.

Right now we have a 7 point lead over the Kadikoy mob who play on Monday against Antep. Of course finishing at the top does not mean anything this season with the ridiculous play off system being foisted on the teams.

Anyway I would like to be able to read and comment on what the AKP is doing to my country, soon the jails will have more people in than are free on the street. But I cannot.
