Was that a shot?

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.


  1. It seems to me that Oz Kanka needs to visit my Optimism Supermarket where they sell Ankaragucu Pills. They are sure to have Gencler ones in stock by now ?!

    Chin up Oz. Remember ..... this is the way Ankaragucu usually starts the season and .... hey ..... we are still in the Super League !!

    Also, there will be 3 points guaranteed when you play Ankaragucu next month. I can't remember the last time Ankaragucu beat Gencler !!

    jim we won both ankara derbys last season lol, you must have had one to many efes those nights.

    Im surprised at Genclers start, i thought they would have won at least two of the games. Still a long way to go but i think loosing pektenek is a big blow. At least Michael Stewert is nearing fitness


  3. Hmmmmmm ........ well, Nadeem, that is strange !

    What, Ankaragucu winning ??

    No ........ me having too many Efes !!!!
