Because, let me say it again...Besiktas need Delgodo just like Fenerbahce needs Kezman in the Europe....
By the way, Ertugrul Saglam, is not the first Turkish coach to take Besiktas to Champions League....

TURKEY TURKCELL SUPER LEAGUE REVIEW BY AHMET TURGUT



SUNDAY REVIEW:


WATCHING TURKISH SOCCER ON TV IS NO FUN!.....

I am going to be bold and talk about the times of the matches and Tv soccer programs and Lig TVs "Maraton" program.
it was 12 midnight in Turkey and 5:00 afternoon in New York when Galatasaray v Anakaragucu match ended... and Maraton program just started... if people want to watch other games highlights, they have to wait until 3 am in Turkey and 8:00pm at New york time...while fans in Turkey have sleepless Sunday night before Monday's work day ..it is very hard for people like me who is watching it here in United States.
Because, it is summer and most people like me,like to spend time out doors,during the day.... That's why,I only watched Galatasaray match and did not stay to watch those nonsense soccer TV programs goes for hours...I think that is absurd in my opinion!....I hope they fix this in hurry!..because this is real pain for the viewers!and they are not watching these programs!....
Back to Sunday matches,,,,,Gaatasaray jst like Fenerbahce and Besiktas scored one goal and captured the three points and the league's top place back from Besiktas.
The match was played behind Closed doors in Ali Samiyen Stadium and Lincoln scored the only goal in the 22th minute of the match and the match ended with this score too... If Ankaragucu had power forwards in this match,they would score against Galatasaray team.... Their attacker were really week!....
Another team who was punished by TFF 5 games behind Closed Doors Trabzonspor, won the match against Caykur Rizespor 5-1. TFF still did not announced the decision about Sivasspor match..... They did punish them with 5 games with no fans, but, Tff is late making their decision Sivasspor match .... According to Fifa rules Trabzonspor should lose that match although they were winning 1-0 and only thirty seconds left to play when referee of the match suspended the match.
We will wate for this late decision by TFF..
Elsewhere on Sunday,Kayserispor beat Kasimpasa...score 2-0.... In this match, the Kayserispor fans were Abdullah Gul's mask!.....This why,politics rule Turkish soccer..
In Denizli , Denizlispor beat their neighbor Vestel Manisaspor 3-2 . In Ankara. Ankaraspor drew with Konyaspor 1-1.
At the end of the third week, Galatasaray on top with perfect score and points (9points). Besiktas on second with same points..... Kayseispor on third with seven points and Trabzon,Istanbul B.B,Ankaragucu and Fenerbahce follows Keyserispor with 6 points.On the Bottom of the barrel,Kasimpasa an Caykur Rizespor yet to earn any points yet....


WOOD WORKS SAVES FENERBAHCE AND INJURY TIME LUCK FOR BESIKTAS!....

Although Roberto Carlos scored the Fenerbahce's only and his first ever TSL goal there were two shots came of of woodworks of Fenerbahce goal. if those were in the goal we could not talked about Fenerbahce's win and Roberto Carlos first goal. Let me say this , When the aces of Fenerbahce players on the pitch with Carlos , they do not run!....they seem to play more slower soccer.....this could be trouble for Fener in coming days!... any team takes advantage of Roberto Carlos side of field ,they will give Fenerbahce hard time. Carlos , in my opinion, slows the game down....he does not run ,,,when he goes up, he is late coming back !..Zico, has to watch this!...

As far as Besiktas, they were saved by 16 years old striker Batuhan Karadeniz, in the last second of the injury time in Gaziantep. Now, I am sure every soccer writer, who has a corner in the major news paper will take this kid, to sky-limit with their remarks!...that could be disaster for this kids future in my opinion!... Rookie coach Ertugrul Saglam, took Delgado out in the 63th minute and put Batuhan in the match....I know one thing, if Batuhan ,didn't score that goal for Besiktas , every body would be trashing Ertugrul Saglam for taken out Delgado from the match Today!..... I think ,Saglam escaped a fire again this week....... just like he did last week too!....How long this rabbit will jump!.... I don't know..I know one thing, Saglam has to play Delgado and give his confidence back!...he will need him in the Champions League matches, Because Batuhan Karadeniz will not save him in the CL......

Elswere on Saturday, Burasaspor won in a way in Ankara and they beat Genclerbirligi ...score Bursa 3- Gencler 1

In Istanbul, Istanbul Municipality team beat League's another newcomer Gencler Oftas 1-0.

Round three of the TURKISH Turkcell Super League

Galatasaray will be looking to continue its winning ways when it takes on Ankaragucu Sunday.

With the Turkish national side having gone around in a friendly international against Romania Thursday, the domestic competition takes Friday off, with four matches being played Saturday in the Super League.

First of this is the Fenerbahce versus Sivasspor game, being played early evening. After a shock loss first up, reigning champion Fener bounced back with a win last weekend. Even though some of its players had international duty mid week, the Yellow Canaries should be too strong for Sivas.

Saturday’s other matches see Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyespor take on fellow Super League newcomer OFTAS, Genclerbirligi meet Bursaspor and Gaziantepspor at home against Besiktas.

On Sunday, league leader Galatasaray has Ankaragucu on its dance card; Ankaraspor takes on Konyaspor; Denizlispor is visited by Manisaspor; Trabzonspor hosts fellow Black Sea side the winless and dead last Rizespor; and second placed Kayserispor has newly promoted Kasimpasa coming to visit.

Striker Ciprian Marica's cross was converted from close range by Dica to put Romania ahead on 62 minutes.

The Galaxy advanced to the Aug. 29 tournament final in Carson against Mexican club team Pachuca, which tied Houston 2-2, but won 4-3 on penalty. kicks
The winning team earns $1 million, which the Galaxy could put toward paying Beckham's $6.5 million yearly salary.

Beckham also earned his first yellow card after fouling United's Jaime Moreno in the 18th minute. Beckham got fouled once in the first half, when he also took two corner kicks.

Beckham played 63 minutes. He clapped his hands above his head while turning in a circle to acknowledge the cheers before putting the captain's armband on Donovan and heading to the bench.

SHAME OF TURKISH SOCCER!...HOW DO YOU CALL THIS LEAGUE, "SUPER LEAGUE"

Is it Israeli,Egyptian clash on the field or STUPID THUG FANS AND PLAYERS?.....
The Turkcell Super League season started this weekend on a BAD and violent note when Sivasspor's Israeli striker Pini Balili was violently tackled by Trabzonspor's Egyptian defender Ayman Abdelaziz.

At the time Trabzonspor were up 1-0, on their home turf when Ayman tackled Balili. After the players push and showing,the thugs,(only few) Trabzonspor fans stormed the pitch kicking and punching the Sivasspor players. the referee ran to dressing room, from where he declared the game prematurely terminated.
Now Ladies and Gentelman, How do we call this League, Super League?...
What we withness last year ,it started, on week one again!...Who is going to stop this?....Lastly, In my opinion Ayman and Balili are both very hard nose players... but< they should leave the religion politics outside of Turkish soccer....This is Turkiye....

Reuters:Fenerbahce move to Brazilian rhythm in title race

ISTANBUL, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Fenerbahce will launch their Turkish league campaign on Friday as favourites to retain the title with a team that is taking on a growing Brazilian flavour after the signing of Roberto Carlos.

Galatasaray have also turned to a Brazilian for inspiration among their summer signings in the form of playmaker Lincoln and are looking to the experience of veteran German coach Karl-Heinz Feldkamp to unseat their arch Istanbul rivals.

Fenerbahce earned a morale-boosting win on Sunday when they beat the other major title contenders Besiktas 2-1 in the Turkish Super Cup, which pitches the league champions against the cup winners.

"Winning a cup like this during our preparations at the start of the season increases our expectations and hopes about what we will achieve," said Fenerbahce's Brazilian coach Zico.

Fenerbahce will kick off the season on Friday when they play newly promoted Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyespor, the Istanbul municipality club, at the city's Olympic Stadium.

Of the other two realistic title contenders, Besiktas play at home against Konyaspor on Saturday and Galatasaray will host Rizespor on Sunday.

Fenerbahce won the league for the 17th time in May and were runaway leaders with 70 points ahead of Besiktas on 61 and Galatasaray on 56.

Former Real Madrid defender Roberto Carlos will join his compatriots, including newly appointed captain Alex de Souza, forward Deivid de Souza and defender Edu Dracena, at Fenerbahce.

The squad also includes Wederson and Mehmet Aurelio, who have dual Brazilian and Turkish citizenship.

Forward Colin Kazim-Richards has also joined the club from Sheffield United.

EUROPEAN HOPES

Under new coach Ertugrul Saglam, Besiktas snapped up two Fenerbahce players over the summer -- experienced international goalkeeper Rustu Recber and midfielder Mehmet Yozgatli.

The club have also added to their midfield with Chilean international Rodrigo Tello from Portugal's Sporting and French player Edouard Cisse from Paris St Germain.

They will be looking to set their season off on the right foot on Wednesday when they play Moldova's Sheriff in the return leg of the Champions League second qualifying round.

Aside from Galatasaray's UEFA Cup triumph in 2000, Turkish clubs have failed to achieve major success in Europe, with Fenerbahce in particular having underperformed, a record they are determined to improve on this season.

Under Feldkamp, who previously coached the club in the 1992-93 season, Galatasaray has strengthened its midfield with the signing from FC Copenhagen of Swedish international Tobias Linderoth, who will link up with Brazilian Lincoln from Schalke.

The club has also turned to Germany to sign young Turkish-German duo Baris Ozbek and Serkan Calik from Rot-Weiss Essen, to inject some youth to a squad which still features veteran striker Hakan Sukur and midfielder Hasan Sas.

BESIKTAS SACK ALI GULTIKEN!

Ladies and Gentelman, as I predicted, Ali Gultiken is fired and Mogul Sinan Engin hired like mafia style!...

Where is the profesionalizm in Turkish soccer and Besiktas?..
this is Absurd!...Ali Gultiken , said"His job was taken from him and that was not fare".....Do you blame him for that!....He was robbed by mafia in my opinion...

I know one thing , there will be a lot of clash between Sinan Engin and the coach of the team Ertugrul Saglam....and this will hurt Besiktas in the long run!

AHMET TURGUT
turkishsoccer.com "editor"

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH BESIKTAS!.....

The Turkcell Super League will start in about ten days and we see big kaos in Turkish Super League again this year.
Besiktas,will bring back Sinan Engin as a General Manager!...
Besiktas president Mr.Demiroren, has spoken to Sinan Engin,and most likely deal is allready done.

WHY BESIKTAS NEED SINAN ENGIN?..
The troubles started in the club when Club's Football department head Celal Kolot, head a clash with Besiktas female board of member Guliz Arsel. After this,Demiroren asked him to resign!....

Sinan Engin, will damage this Besiktas if he starts working again with Besiktas team.
Young coach Ertugrul Saglam will not function with Sinan Engin...this is fact!..
Plus, I am just wondering what they are going to do with Ali Gultiken who still hold the General Manager job!...
AHMET TURGUT

DIATTA SIGNS WITH BESIKTAS TODAY...


Lamine Diatta, will sign with Besiktas on Friday. The 32 year-old player will get one million Euros for a year.

RUSTU RECBER HURT!


According to Besiktas web site, Rustu Recber, was seen by club Doctor and his MR showed, he has injuried his right leg. Most likely, Rustu will not play against his former team Fenerbahce, in Turkey's Super Cup match in Germany.
This was my consern when Besiktas transfred him from Fenerbahce. If you look at his record since Barcelona days, he has been on the sidelined for long period!...
I still think he will not be consistant,playing in Besiktas goal this year.
Speaking of Keepers, I think, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray will have a trouble spill in their goal too.

FREDDY ADU Will Play for Portuguese Power Benfica


The 18-year-old attacking midfielder, whose D.C. United career began at age 14 amid wild expectations and came to a disappointing end last winter with a trade to MLS's worst team, was in Lisbon yesterday to finalize a five-year contract with Portuguese power Benfica.

Adu arrived in Lisbon on Monday with his mother, Emelia, and Los Angeles-based agent, Richard Motzkin, and trained yesterday with Benfica, which is preparing for European Champions League qualifying in two weeks. He is scheduled to return to the Washington area today to gather his belongings and spend time with friends and family, then fly back to Portugal on Sunday.

Adu, who immigrated to the United States from Ghana with his mother and brother in 1997.
Benfica wrap up a deal for Freddy Adu (18) who agreed a five-year deal. The Portoguese club paid up to 1.5 millions of dollars to Real Salt Lake.

Adu's salary is expected to be moderately more than the $550,000.

Galatasaray approach Man Utd for Saha


Galatasaray have asked Manchester United to keep them informed of Louis Saha's situation.

The France international is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines and while Gala are keen to take him off United's hands, they want the forward to prove his fitness first.

The Turkish giants are desperate to make a splash in the summer market and are turning to Saha after failing in bids for Julio Baptista [Real Madrid] and Kevin Kuranyi [Schalke].
