The top four temas will play for Championship.... From 5th place to 8th place teams will play for the Europian Cup slot, that one is little tricky! The top four teams will play in a mini-league home and away.... Each teams will play six matches...... At the end of this weekend, top four teams points wil be diveded to half and the teams will start the play-off with those points.... First place finisher will be the the Champions of Turkey..... On the other hand, teams between 5th and 8th place, will play in same format and the first place finisher will face 4th place team from the top bracket for the Europa League.. The winner of that match will represent Turkey in the Europa league.... So, it is very confusing but, that is how this so called "SUPER FINAL' will be played in Turkey! This weekend ,Besiktas,Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce will try to win their matches so,they could try to close the gap with Galatasaray! The gap between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce is 9 points........

So, if all the top teams win their matches on this weekend the gap will be prety much same.... 9 points with Fenerbahce, 19 points with Trabzonspor and 20 points with Besiktas.... This play-off will be between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.... Trabzonspor and Besiktas hardly have any chance winning the playoffs! The teams who are in between 5th and 8th place has to win their matches this weekend....

The New Era Under Abdullah Avci Started With A Loss.


The new era which started under Abdullah Avci,started with a loss at home...

Abdullah Avci, who said, he will be using wide range of pool players of close to 30 during this friendly matches...

That is what he did in his first match as a coach of Turkey!

He gave a signal ,that he wants to see young players on the pitch...

We could say rebuilding of Turkish National team has began with Abdullah Avci...

Can he do that?

That is very early to answer now...

Losing to Slovakia 1-2 at home in front of Bursa fans,defense and the keeper, Sinan Bolat was very bad on Slovakia's both goals....

Turkey's only goal came by "new comer" Omer Toprak who choose Turkey over Germany....

Slovakia's goal came by from Weiss and Stoch.....

It was a disappointing first game for Abdullah Avci, who took over in November from Guus Hiddink.

At the press conference Avci said, "five to six players played on the national team for the first time.
I wanted to see their good intentions,work and what they want to do on the pitch.

We have six more friendlies to play. We will work hard"

Former chairman of Besiktas team, business man and media tycoon in Turkey ,became the 41th president of Turkish Football Federation.....

There is a saying in Turkish, "41 kere masallah" " Forty first time,good luck "

Turkish Football and Mr.Demiroren needs that good luck, in my opinion...

Since July 3rd of this year, there has been a lot of water passed under the bridge but no solutions was found for chaos in the Turkish Football!

Even foreign news agencies like Reuters, after recent elections, wrote this, in their headings about Yildirim Demiroren, becoming the new head at TFF!

"Turkey elects head to weather match-fixing storm" (Retuers )

That is not this blogger heading....

That is the most powerful news organizations "Reuters", heading about Turkish Football!

The world is watching very closely, us

I hope you guys know that.....


DemirOren became the TFF’s 41st president after receiving 221 out of 253 votes.....

Yıldırım Demirören ran in the presidential elections as the only candidate for the TFF presidency.

He said he will work very closely with everyone to make Turkish Football better again....

"My only aim is for us to come out of this chaos unscathed, without hurting anyone or upsetting any person or team"

Good Luck to him.....

If the decision on match fixing case don't come out before the end of the march , UEFA, will speak instead!

UEFA, already warned TFF to make decision an match -fixing case and UEFA said TFF is very late on deciding on the case....

Here are the all the names in Yildirim Demiroren's presidency....
