This was a six-pointer and Gencler managed to give it away in the last few minutes. A disappointing end to a fairly disappointing match.
Antalyaspor 1 - 1 Genclerbirligi
Just a few fans down at the Alerta on Sunday afternoon... probably as many as made the trip down to Antalya. The pre-match talk in the pub was that this was one for the taking with Antalya being rubbish at the moment and their coach had quit on the night before the match.
The general views seemed correct once the game got underway. The only thing was that Gencler were just as bad as the home side. First half finished 0-0 with bugger all chances for either side.
Second half though and we started to attack and it paid off when Elvis Manu broke free and made a short cross to Jailton who knocked it in. Nice goal.
At about 85 minutes I had to leave and it wasn't until I was in the bus on my way home when I saw a whole heap of messages on whatsap. We had clearly conceded.
Then late last night another stream of messages. This time from Mehmet Soylu, the Gencler fan who has filed a criminal complaint against Umit Ozat for insulting him on Instagram. According to Soylu, Ozat confronted him in the bus on the way to the plane at Antalya airport. Ozat was swearing away at him.
Soylu's 15 year-old son was recording the incident when his phone was taken out out of his hand by fullback Zeki Yavru and the recording deleted.
The arguments continued on the plane and the cabin crew were forced to intervene.
Oh dear, oh dear.
Onto next week and our last home game of the first half of the season. It is also the last match on our season tickets... There has been no announcement on where we will be playing for the second half of the season.
