|I think three of this lot were here for the later match.|
Bursa 1 - 1 Genclerbirligi
Raining with a bit of snow on the walk down to the Alerta where a few of the Ankaragucu Kankas were also gathering for their slightly later kick off.
Nice and warm inside and Kick off and ... boy... Gencler were being smashed.
At one point bursa had 70 percent of possession but somehow or other they couldn't score. Throughout the match there was all sorts of heroics by Hopf and our defenders and how on earth Bursa didn't score was a mystery to all.
Instead it was Skuletic who put Gencler ahead in the 70th with a wonderful team effort that involved heaps of great short passes. Amazing really.
As if they hadn't been trying before Bursa put their collective foot down even harder and managed to score after Murat Duruer fell over. Ankaragucu Kankas Damon and Jim were not surprised.
Last few minutes and lots of hearts in mouths as Bursa attacked and attacked. But no goal.
So we were happy. Happy Christmas everyone.
