Alanyaspor 4 - 1 Genclerbirligi
A decent win last week. A loss the week before that most blamed on the referee... Hopes were high for today. They were destroyed just a few minutes in.
Both teams started at a frantic pace but the Alanyaspor defence held firm. Our lot... asdfghjk
One-nil, then 2-0, and both were from some real basic failures to mark. The third goal was the same. The last was... well, there was definitely some brilliance from the scorer.
Alanya even had a player sent off on the 75th minute but could we convert? Nope.
I ended up watching the match down at the Beer Bus in Kizilay. A last minute choice and a couple of the Alkaralar crowd were there as well. The consensus: we have totally failed to replace Ahmet Oguz at the back.
Bloody hell... I shudder to think what Besiktas will do to us in our next league match. (Friday October 13).
