Fatih Terim's third spell bring another tittle for Galatasaray


This was Fatih Terim's back to back his second Championship tittle in his third spell with Galatasaray .

Also, it was his sixth, winning  the title in Turkey....

That is a record for any coach in Turkey.....

Before, Trabzonspor coach  Ahmet Suat Ozyaci did win it, 4 times in Turkey.

Galatasaray won their record 19th Turkish Super League title after beating Sivasspor in front of their fans.

Whether you like Fatih Terim or hate him, there is one thing,you can't regret his success as coach!

Knowing him since his early 1990' coaching days as Turkish National team coach , after with Galatasaray, he has came from long journey with his vision and his hard work.

His first spell was awesome with Galatasaray, won a lot of trophies....

And ,league title for four times and winning the UEFA cup for the first time!

His second term with Galatasaray was failure .....

But, like I said before, with Unal Aysal coming in to the power as a chairman  two years ago,  Unal Aysal called Fatih Terim to be the coach for third spell!


The third time charm, for Fatih Terim was best and highlights of his career ,in my opinion !

Knowing him  for long time, this has to be the best two years of life in his coaching career .

( Fatih Terim and  Turkish Football Blogger Ahmet B Turgut  in 1997 )

Winning the Turkish Super League title back to back, playing in the Champions League , getting out of the group stages for the first time , beating Manchester United in Istanbul and giving a hell of fight against Real Madrid team in the quarter final in the Champions league!

And, with Unal Aysal vision, coaching world class players like Drogba and Sneijder.....

World's eye catching addition of  Sneijder and Drogba fueled  Galatasaray's passion for the title.

Fatih Terim, in the beginning of his third spell , made smart moves and transferred , Muslare, Burak Yilmaz and Selcuk Inan. 

Top scorer in Turkey Burak Yilmaz  was the one of the keys to Galatasaray  successes .... 

The work horse of  Galatasaray team  along with other players....

Overall, the third spell for Fatih Terim will be remembered for long time....

Collecting  six titles in eight years !

That is excellent .......

You have to give credit where it due.....

It has been great third spell for Fatih Terim with Galatasaray.


With two weeks remaining in the season, while Galatasaray won , their arrival Fenerbahce lost to Buyuksehir and shock Fenerbahce .

Next weekends, derby match in Kadikoy, could be very interesting for Fenerbahce after they will play a very important Turkish Cup Semi-Final match against Eskisehirspor in the mid week.

With losing to Buyuksehir , Fenerbahce in danger of losing their second place in the league!

In the last two weekends, we could see Fenerbahce compete with Besiktas to finish second place after Galatasaray already clinch the title and guaranteed to go the UEFA's Champions League directly .

Second place team will also get a shot of the Champions League, that is why this race could get very intersting.

On the bottom of the league, Orduspor is  the other team will not be in the Turkish Super League next season  after Mersin.

The third team is still up in the air , after Buyuksehir win and Akhisar losing in Antalya!

Looks like the fight will go down to the wire......

Will it be Akhisar, Buyuksehir or other teams, still unknown!
