Let me start by quoting Sir Eski: "As you can see, if Gencler can perform a miracle on 12 January in Buca, then it really will throw the shit into the fan !!!"
Whilst I wouldn't call it a miracle. I am pretty happy.
Bucaspor 1 - 2 Genclerbirligi
The Turkish Cup match wasn't on the telly and the radio coverage was spotty, but it was good to here that Ermin Zec is back from injury and as far as I could figure out he got an assist for the first goal which was scored by Oktay Delibalta.
A new signing, Yasin Oztekin got the second. Oztekin was bought from Borussia Dortmund just a few days ago and sounds like he might be worth watching. As far as I could tell Oztekin was the only new fellow to play tonight.
It was 1-2 at half time and stayed that way for the rest of the match although both sides had opportunities to score. Including one shot from Buca which bounced down from the crossbar and which the Buca players claimed had gone over the line.
All up a good result for Genclerbirligi. The table as it stands.
Buca: Pl 3 Pts 6
Ankaragucu: Pl 2 Pts 4
Gencler: Pl 2 Pts 4
Y. Malatyaspor: Pl 1 Pts 0
Fenerbache: Pl 2 Pts 0
In other news. Billy Mehmet has been loaned out to Samsunspor. He never really got going. While Michael Stewart has fled the country. We never really got to seem him as he got injured in the pre-season.
