With Jim on his way back to Scotland, i thought id do the Match thread. Where do i even start ???? It was a heartless, disgusting performance from the Manger and Players as you will see from my post.
Talk before the match was there would be a protest against Umit Ozat, a man who has taken over from Roger Lemerre and been given good money to take us up the table. After our shocking performanc in the cup midweek, a win was the only result good enough today.
Team Lined Up
Varol Rajnoch Zewlakow Ugur
Gabrc Kagan Sapara Murat Druer
So Umit decided to drop Bora Kork for Ozden despite him been man of the match last week, he also played our right back at left back, and Guven Varol who impressed early season in midfield at right back. Gabric who only has a left foot stuck out on the right.
The game started and it was Ankaragucu who had the first chance, a lovely through ball for Murat Druer left him one on one with the goalkeeper, but he could only put it by the post. Manisaspor's first chance came through Josh Simpson, he got the better of Varol and was one on one with Ozden but the Keeper saved to keep it at 0-0.
At this point it was an even match, then came the goal. A long hopefull ball by Oumar Kalabane into the Ankaragucu box. Kahe lost his marker in Rajnoch but it was an easy ball for Ozden to either come and punch or stay on his line, he did neither, misjudged it and Kahe headed it over the top of him, 1-0 Manisaspor. Every touch after this Ozden was booed by the fans.
It took Ankaragucu till the 42nd Minute to get back into the game, it was a cross into the box by Murat, which was brought down by Metin Akan who stroked the ball through the keepers legs to make it 1-1.
This lead to the most entertaining part of the game, one of the Ankaragucu fans ran on the park after Umit Ozat threw his clipboard down and made a gesture at the fans. He tried to kick Ozat but Ozat got there first with a punch and knocked him to the ground and started kicking him on the head. The game was held up for ten minutes. The Ankaragucu fan should never have ran on the park, but Umit Ozat cant conduct himself, and his comments and actions have lead to this.
Half Time 1-1
Second half was a boring afare, After Ankaragucu scored they looked to have some fire in there bellys but came out at half time with nothing in them, a few half chances hear and there from Marek Sapara and Jan Rajnoch were about as good as it got. The game looked to be heading for a draw until Ozgur Cek tried a fancy flick and gave the ball away, this lead to Manisaspor attacking on the break, Ivanski played the ball into the box and it ended up in the path of Mehmet Guven who put it into an empty net.
One minute later, Mehmet Guven had the ball again, he ran 20 yeard without been challanged and struck a 30 yard effort into the back of the net, again Ozden should have done better. 3-1 Manisaspor and full time.
Hikmet Karaman came onto the pitch at the end of the game and was given a great reception by the Ankaragucu fans. His side are now in the top half of the table, having spent no where near the money Umit Has. For Umit Ozat been such a good defender in his day, he has an awful record at picking them. Jan Rajnoch again struggled at Centre half, and the other players out of position are becoming a joke.
If Umit is still manager by Monday morning then we are in big trouble.
