Another small note concerning the elections on Sunday for the chairman's job at Genclerbirligi. I've yet to see anything even slightly resembling a "platform" from either candidate and current incumbent Ilhan Cavcav today hardly enlightens.
Speaking to the Anatolia news agency Cavcav seems to have spent more time discussing the mad plans to stop teams from being relegated this season than the actual elections coming up. (Although admittedly this could be the Anatolia reporter's fault).
He did say something, but I'm not sure if it will help at all.
"If I lose the election the happiest person will be Fenerbahce Chairman Aziz Yildirim," Cavcav said.
Cavcav was referring to the still ongoing war of words between himself and the Fenerbahce boss which started when Cavcav said Fenerbahce were acting like the PKK, trying to split the league, in the way they wanted to get all the revenue from TV rights.
No doubt Yildirim would be happy to see Cavcav go down but I fail to see how a vote for Aytek counts as a vote for Fenerbahce.
Anyway, the election seems to have halted all other work at Gencler for the past week or so. There hasn't been an update on the Gencler website since the loss to Samsunspor a couple of weeks ago. I guess everyone is out signing up members.
We shall find out on Sunday. Hopefully it will all go smoothly and the congress actually finishes before 7 p.m. when Gencler take on Rize. What absolutely stupid timing.
