We have no idea when the league will start. The Super Cup has been cancelled. Genclerbirligi have decided not to sell any kombine tickets for section C of Maraton where we normally sit and now it isn't even clear whether any matches at the 19 Mayis Stadium will be allowed.
According to a report by Klasspor today, the Federation sent something or other to the Ankara governor's office and to the Gençlik Spor İl Müdürlüğü that due to the facilities at the stadium being crap no one can play there.
The letter says that there aren't enough entrance turnstiles (true), the lighting system is rubbish (seems okay to me) and that the women's referees changing rooms and toilets need to be fixed up (I don't know but it wouldn't surprise me).
I could add a couple of more things to the list. The stadium is falling apart, the massive fences between the fans and the field, the fact that there is an asphalt running track around the field, that the fans toilets are crap, that we can't have a beer and a fag whilst watching the match, that my coins keep on being taken off me whilst the Istanbul fans manage to get flares into the game, that the last time I saw a decent game from Genclerbirligi was circa 2005 and that even if we are playing well Fenerbahce have probably bought the match in any case.
FSM I'm depressed.
As for season tickets. I'm going to wait and see and buy mine some time after I'm back in the country in mid-August... that's if there is a league next year.
