Live radio blogging: Istanbul BBS v Genclerbirligi

2:55 pm: Been a while since we have had some of the most exciting commentary it is possible to experience. Yep, Live Radio Blogging is back.

Basically, I listen to the radio, try and understand what the hell is going on and then twist that into a very pro-Gencler minute-by-minute report. Kick-off any minute now.

3:01 pm Good to see that Harbuzi is on. Kahe seems to be off. The rest is the same as usual. Peep, peep. And we are off.

3:10 pm First chance falls to Gencler but cleared by the defence. By the way, perhaps I should mention that I'm enjoying this radio report with a yep, you guessed, an Efes!

Since then though they have gone to the Konya-Adana match (in the second division), had a few adverts and now we are back with the Konya match... oh dear.

3:12 pm Oh dear. From a freekick Istanbul have gone ahead. Istanbul BBS 1 - 0 Genclerbirligi

3:23 pm Not a lot happening on the field. Hurşut had a chance but it was snuffed out.

3:29 pm Eureka has a shot from not far out but straight to the keeper. Then Istanbul attack, but another bad shot.

3:32 pm Istanbul have another good short. This one goes for a corner... which goes straight out for a goal kick.

3:37 pm And just as they cross to the Konya match... Mustafa Pektemek scores. That goal was brought to you by the last swig of my Efes. Time for another me thinks. Istanbul BBS 1 - 1 Genclerbirligi

3:41 pm Some Istanbul player got a yellow card. (I've lost my yellow card image).

3:46 pm And that's half-time. Back soon.

4:08 pm A few minutes into the second half and whilst Gencler are attacking they aren't putting the goalkeeper under much pressure.

4:20 pm Both teams have upped the tempo but no results as yet.

4:27 pm The commentator says that Gencler are putting on a good show. Okay, now we have to convert that "good show".

4:30 pm Istanbul almost score. Ball just out. Eureka goes off and I'm not sure who came on.

4:36 pm It was Patiyo who came on and he was THIS close to scoring. But now ....... GGGGGOOOOOOOAAALLLLL. It was Harbuzi. Istanbul BBS 1 - 2 Genclerbirligi

4:38 pm Hurşut has come off and Bilal on. Hurşut seems to have a good game. Well as much as I can tell. Harbuzi's name was hardly mentioned until the goal. Now Istanbul are attacking like hell. Serdar saves us twice in as many seconds.

4:45 pm And that's it. Mustafa Pektemek scores his second goal with just a minute left of extra time. That man deserves an Efes! Istanbul BBS 1 - 3 Genclerbirligi

4:48 pm Pektemek off, Erdem on. In extra time but still we are attacking. This is all good stuff.

4:50 Last seconds... and peep, peep, peep. A good result all round.

Final Result
Istanbul BBS 1 - 3 Genclerbirligi
