I guess I could have stayed at home to do some radio blogging of today's match but decided instead to take Little Oz Kanka to a pantomine where Smart Arse Yankee Kanka Dave gave a much better performance as Major Domo in Aladdin then Genclerbirligi have been performing as a football team in the Turkish Super Lig.
Gaziantep 2 - 0 Genclerbirligi
So all I've got is the Anadolu news agency very short report.
Let's just put it this way, five of the Gencler players (and this includes the two subs used) were given two stars out of three. The rest got just a single star. My guess is that if Anadolu gave "no stars" then quite a few of our players would have got them.
Looking at the comments on the Alkaralar fan site this was quite a boring game, spiced up only by a couple of decent shots from Kahe and Nas.
Then, just towards the end Gaziantep scored. Then a few minutes later, they scored again.
Dear oh dear. This is looking pretty scary.
There has been a thread on the Alkaralar site wishing the best to a few fans who are off to do their military service. Quite frankly, the way we are going this might be the best time to disappear from the scene for 12 months.
