First of all Well done to Genclerbirligi in joining Bucaspor in the Quarter Finals of the Turkish Cup. The road to Kayseri is going to be difficult but you never know in cup competitions.
Im sure Oz Kanka and Jim will update us with reports on tonights games, Fenerbahce won 2-1 against Gencler while Ankaragucu drew 0-0 at Yenni Malatayaspor. It seems such a long time ago where we won 4-2 at home to Fenerbahce in what was our most difficult match, 3 draws later and were out.
Umit Ozat must take the blame, and the players share this also. We sacked first of all Hikmet Karaman who never had the financial backing which Umit had, he is now above us in the league with Manisaspor, we then decided against giving Roger Lemmere a contract and Umit is no futher forward with the money he has had. Still he chooses to play players out of position, still he hasnt addressed our weak backline, and he cant get away with these poor results any longer.
The decision to play a weakened team at home to Buca has came back to haunt us, and this is Umits decision, i dont know what the team is tonight but whoever was on the park should have been able to beat Yenni. Including our pre season games we have only scored 2 goals in our last 6 games. Not good enough, and to make things even more worrying, Umit has no relationship with the fans.
Im sorry, but its time to do yourself and Ankaragucu a favour Umit Ozat, and walk with a bit of pride.
In other news its been reported Ankaragucu have signed Mehmet Aykuz, and ex Genclerbirligi player who has played the last few seasons in the lower leagues, his last team Linyitspor.
