Antalyaspor v Genclerbirligi

Afternoon all and bad news already.

1:43 pm: A bit late I'm afraid as my son has been playing PES 2010 on the computer and I've had to kick him off so I can report on the report from the radio. Anyway, the match kicked-off at 1:30 pm and just four minutes in saw Mile Jedinak score for Antalyaspor. Does make you wonder why we loaned the fellow to Antalya at the beginning of the season. According to the radio it has been all Antalya. A long afternoon ahead of me? Antalyaspor 1 - 0 Genclerbirligi

1:54 pm: As usual, TRT radio don't have a dedicated feed of the match and so I'm currently listening to coverage of some lower division match. I did manage to get a team list though: Serdar-Ilhan-Ivan-Aykut-Orhan-Cem Can-Hurşut-Kerem-Burhan-Kahe-Sando.

1:56 pm: Lack of coverage gives me the chance to explain the latest regarding Hurşit. It seems that when he was playing back in Belgium (or somewhere) the coach decided his name was not appropriate, for obvious reasons, and he now wants to be known as Hurşut. At least that is what I sort of understood from a quick read of a Gencler forum report.

2:00 pm: Still not a single chance for Gencler, half an hour in... what has happened?

2:05 pm: Gencler have a go! Kahe shoots, off the post and then Burhan sends it just out. 36 minutes in and it was our first proper chance.

2:15 pm: Just on half-time and Jedinak scores again.
Antalyaspor 2 - 0 Genclerbirligi

2:33 pm: Second-half starts and Mustafa Pektemek and Harbuzi are brought on for Gencler. Sandro and Kerem off. I think it may all be a lost cause though.

2:35 pm: Hello to whoever is commenting below. Unfortunately the match isn't on the telly. I'm listening to the radio.

2:44 pm: Seems as if Antalya have just missed a very good chance. Not much to report as the radio is concentrating on every game but this one. Meanwhile half-time in Ankara. Ankaragucu 0 - 0 Denizlispor. Sounds like a big and very loud Ankaragucu crowd.

2:56 pm: The commentator has just said that Genclerbirligi's biggest problem seems to be an inability to concentrate. It's not that difficult is it? Aussie Bruce has been brought on.

2:59 pm Still not much to report. And to our friend commenting below the line - I'll put up a youtube video of the goals once someone or other posts them. Normally it takes a day before that happens. Just remember to come back some time tomorrow.

3:13 pm: Another missed chance for Gencler. Aussie Bruce this time hits the post. Commentator says the match has lost all purpose. Little Oz Kanka is badgering me to get off the computer as he wants to get back to playing Pro-Evolution Soccer. Gencler are certainly doing better in the PES league with Little Oz Kanka just registering a 6-0 win over Fenerbahce.

3:20 pm: Peep, peep, peep and an end to my misery. Bye all and good luck to Ankaragucu who are still drawing 0-0 with Denizli.

Final Score
Antalyaspor 2 - 0 Genclerbirligi

And full time at the 19 Mayis.

Ankaragucu 1 - 0 Denizlispor
Report from Sir Eski later on.
