This team is a lot worse than last year's team (the one with Ersen Martin and Gokdeniz). I haven't watch an exiciting Trabzonsor yet this year. Sener wasted the club's money. Wrong choice of players purchased. The team needed 4-5 excellent players and I see none. Not even one good one. The team do not have player like Gokdeniz with speed, power and accuracy. Very slow team. Terrible pasing and crossing. The current Trabzonspor players do not have the talent and speed to carry the club where we all want to see. They just try hard.
What do you think?
I have to say I completely disagree. Even as a non Trabzon fan I'm excited about this team.
The teams you're refering to in years past were dead end clubs. Most the players were just fill ins and there was no vision for the future. You completely had to rely on the individual talents of Gokdeniz and Yattara to do anything. And when they did something you had the added problem of not conceding.
In past years Trabzon has had an extremely weak defense and not many options in the midfield. This year Ersun has put together a squad where any single injury (with the exception of Yattara) won't hurt you guys much. This team is good but what is so exciting is that they're only going to get better.
You have Serkan who plays right back but can also be moved up to the midfield since he has a very good backup at right back. This gives Ersun Yanal many options once you guys take a lead.
You have two solid strikers and if one of them gets injured or is off form Ersun can easily go to a 1 striker formation or throw Isaac upfront. Isaac can also play as a wing foward incase Yattara gets injured.
Song most would disagree with me but I think he is the second best defender in the league, he has really helped stabilize your defense. Now he has Egemen as a parter and you can't do much better than him in poaching Turkish defenders from anadolu teams.
Cale is also a billion times better than the option T.S. had at left back last year.
Throw Coleman in the mix who is finally starting to settle in and Selcuk Inan who is one of the best young all around central midfielders in Turkey and what you have is a very solid well balanced team.
Honestly T.S. doesnt' have many gaps and going into the next transfer window or offseason after that they can not panic and plan carefully to make the team better. One or two solid players in specific positions and this team can compete with anybody in Turkey in the next 2 years.
Ersun seems to really have a plan and a vision for the future, something not just T.S. but all Turkish teams have lacked. Honestly if I was a T.S. fan I wouldn't even care if this team finished in 10th place this year. The future looks very bright.
BTW sorry to write such a long post, I just have so many good things to say about this team right now.
