CHAOS GOES ON WHILE TURKISH SUPER LEAGUE IS UNDER BIG SCRUTINY


There are all kinds of chaos almost every day ,on Turkish TV's and Turkish News Papers, about Turkish football match-fixing scandal while Turkish Super League is going on.....

Jam packed fixture in the Turkish Super League, is very disturbing too...

There are games almost every day, in the league......

During the last week,the Union of Turkish Clubs met and after the meeting, Antalyaspor president and Union of Clubs Vice President Hasan Akıncıoglu said "federation plans to propose an amendment to Article 58 that would mean a point reduction instead of relegation for match fixers."

After this announcement, Fenerbahce vice president Nihat Ozdemir came out and lashed out Hasan Akincioglu for telling the meeting notes to Media!

And he also said,Fenerbahce does not want to make any changes to Article 58 of the disciplinary code and wants the article as it currently is to be applied in the case of Fenerbahce, which is accused of involvement in match-fixing.

BIG DAY IN TURKISH FOOTBALL... JANUARY 26,2012.....

TFF(TURKISH FOOTBALL FEDERATION) ,will hold a special meeting in Ankara on January 26th,2012!

The subject will be, the penalty for clubs involved in match-fixing activity.

Over 300 members who belong to Turkish Football Parliament in Turkey, will decide the future of Turkish football!

While this is going on, Turkish Super League matches are playing but we don't know what they are playing for?

That is why during last week Galatasaray president Unal Aysal send warning letter to TFF saying they do not want the article 58 to changed and they don't want to see Turkey getting banned by UEFA and FIFA in the European competitions....

So, what we will see after January 26,in the Turkish Football.....

More chaos or bright beginning ?

WE will find out.....

I know one thing, during this meeting there will be a lot of clashes and harsh words in this meeting !


While these things happening, Turkish Super matches taken place, almost everyday!

There are matches almost every day until February 5th,2012.......

Week 22th will take a start on Tuesday and end on Wendsday and and on the weekend, week 23, matches will be played.....

They are playing, but no body knows what will happen tomorrow, while this chaos is going on,in Turkey!

Whether article 58, changes or remains same, the chaos will go on in the Turkish Football!

If they change the Article 58, there will be point reduction before the playoffs start...

That means,the teams involved in this scandal, will lose a lot of points that they have earned!

Looking to Turkish Super League standings, out of the first eight teams, there are only two teams are not mention in this match-fixing scandal!..

First place Galatasaray and fourth place Genclerbirligi........

Fenerbahce, Besiktas,Sivasspor,Trabzonspor,Eskisehirspor and Mersin Idman Yurdu are the teams will find them self, in point reduction, if they agree to change the article 58 on January,26th!

So, that is why, what we see is not real, now!

Turkish Super League teams are playing but they don't know what they are playing for !

With this chaos going on, it is not pleasure to write and watch Turkish football....
