Cengiz Topal and Captain Hurriyet Gucer both gave interviews today on the upcoming home match against Galatasaray on Sunday. The players were given a goat to sacrifice at training today which was quite disturbing to watch, even for some of the players.
Cengiz and Hurriyet were both saying the teams preperations for the game are coming along well, the players are getting sharper and they can take points in this game. Captain Hurriyet made a very good point in that our players hadnt trained in a long time which effected the start of the season. We have some good young players and after a better performance at the weekend Ankaragucu are hoping to build on that.
Who could forget last seasons Victories over Galatasaray both Home and Away ? The first game was in Istanbul where we took the lead early on in the game through Metin Akan. Ozgur Cek, Stanislav Sestak and Turgut Dogan Sahin scored second half goals with Milan Baros scoring a double for Galatasaray. The return game in Ankara saw Ankaragucu fight back from 2-1 down late on to win 3-2 thanks to a fantastic hat-trick from Stanislav Sestak.
The likes Of Sestak, Metin Akan and Marek Sapara are all gone as we know, but as Captain Hurriyet said, we do have some good young players in Ozgur Cek, Turgut Dogan Sahin and Tonia Tisdell. One thing is for sure, if we are going to take anything from the game we need to tighten up at the back, and take any chances that come our way.
Young Tonia Tisdell has had a good start to the season, and he will be our Key Player along with the likes of Ozden Ongun and Jan Rajnoch. For Galatasaray, Fatih Terim has added many players to his squad as they look to improve on a disastrous season last term. Felipe Melo, Albert Reira and Milan Baros are all dangerous players but Galatasaray are weak at the back and Tonia has the pace to cause them trouble.
I have taken one of Jim's Optomism pills and im going for a 1-0 win for Ankaragucu with Tonia scoring the winner. Inshallah !!!
