Another 10 pm kick-off and another summer's evening at the Beer Bus. Things couldn't get better, and obviously they didn't.
Bucaspor 3 - 1 Genclerbirligi
Spine joined me for the beers Saturday night and the Beer Bus got itself a good crowd for the late night kick-off but yet again we were dissapointed with a Gencler team that hardly had any shots on goal.
Ermin Zec went close at about the 20th minute with a shot that hit the post but that was about it for the first half. Instead Buca went ahead in the 24th with a nice header from a free kick that left Serdar rooted to the spot.
Trailing 1 - 0 at half-time but spirits were still high amongst the Gencler fans, probably thanks to a mixture of alcohol and the fact that we are pretty much resigned to being dissapointed on the field. Afterall, might as well enjoy the misery.
Second half and nothing much was happening and while I was in the loo a roar went up and we had drawn level. I didn't manage to see a replay of Oktay's goal so I can't describe what happened.
A few minutes later though Buca went back in front with a nother header and then right at the death they sank the third.
Gencler were pretty bad and if we continue to play this way we don't stand a chance of staying in the top flight. Oh dear, oh dear.
