A lucky point

Yet another pathetic result for Genclerbirligi. I guess I should be slightly happy because we really should have lost this match.

Genclerbirligi 1 - 1 Antalyaspor

Just me down at the Alerta Pub to find that some German documentary crew were in there interviewing someone from Taraf-der (the football supporters' association) about the way fans are treated in Turkey, particularly from the point of view of female supporters. Let's just say that it won't be an advertisement for Turkish football.

"Is that enough negative points or do you want some more?"  
Off to the stadium and Gencler went ahead nice and early thanks to a great cross from Serdar (I think) which found Aydin's head and in.

Then it was all rubbish.

A few minutes after taking the lead Ugur Ciftci failed to control a simple ball and allowed an Antalya player through on goal. 1-1. There was lots of shouting from the Gencler players and it was no suprise when Ciftci was subbed out only half way through the first half.

Khalili was having a particularly bad day and there was some ironic applause from various Alkaralar when he got a second (undeserved) yellow. Down to 10 men and well... just bloody lucky to hang on to the draw.
