If it is records that Genclerbirligi are going for we may well be doing well. This evening we sacked our coach... not that Miilyet or Hurriyet could be bothered reporting (at least not in their internet editions late on Tuesday night).
Looking at the news at Alkaralar.com (and informed to me by "fenerfan" in comments in a previous post - thanks mate) it seems as if we have sacked Bulent Korkmaz and signed our old coach Mesut Bakkal to take over for the next week (sorry, I meant, season).
I admit that Genclerbirligi have not been doing well this season but I do ask you all whether it is a good idea to change coaches every couple of weeks. If Bakkal does become the Gencler coach then we will have had five coaches this season.
My point? This is bloody pathetic. Not everything that is wrong with the team can be laid down at the coach. Where is our transfer policy? When the hell are we going to buy a striker?
The latest sacking is clearly the tactic of one old, scared chairmain - Ilhan Cavcav.
Mr. Cavcav, you have done some wonderful things in your time as Genclerbirligi chairman. You have built the team up, you have kept the team in the black, you have presided over some brilliant runs in the Turkish Cup and the UEFA Cup. There are many other things which you should be praised for, and for those I have forgoıtten I apologise.
But please... please... hand the running of the team over to someone younger. It is time for you to retire. Genclerbirligi are becoming a joke.
Of course, Cavcav will never read this plea... So I guess we are fucked.
