Burak Yilmaz #17

So I dropped the ball on making the game thread, and didn't really feel like after we were quickly down by 2 goals. Needless to say, Burak led us to yet another comeback so I figured it was about time this guy got his own thread.

Unfortunately we couldn't get that third goal as we were down a man but at least we managed to get a point..

Eleven goals in eight games. Very impressive.

I hope he keeps up this form all the way up until Croatia. He's making me eat my words because at the scoring pace he's going at now.. I guarantee he gets some attention from European sides.

His career is similar to Guiza. Wait till he gets snapped up for like 14 million euros somewhere.

When this guy was at Fener I thought he could never be a decent player. When Selcuk Inan left I thought he wouldn't have near as much success as he did last year. So far he has proved me wrong. I'm honestly not a fan of the guy. He gets away with a lot in the TL, but he is still banging in goals. Doing his job.

Is it true that if you don't use it, you lose it?

Googled his name and found this written up just yesterday:

Burak Yilmaz – The Turkish goal-machine

Burak Yilmaz is a man possessed – there is no other way to describe it. 8 rounds into the Turkish Super Lig, and the international striker has already got an amazing tally of 11 goals for Trabzonspor , who scored a total of 13. Only 6 teams in the Turkish top division has scored more than Yilmaz...

The 1.88 meter guy has found the net in every league match this season, including a brace in the last encounter against Antalyaspor, and is averaging a goal every 57.27 minutes. A dramatic change from the player he was only year and a half back.

The 26 year-old Yilmaz was a great promise from an early age, scoring 35 goals in 78 appearances for the senior team of Antalyaspor between 2002 and 2006, but later he failed to make a real impact playing for Besiktas, Manisaspor and Fenerbahce, who sold him to Trabzonspor in January 2010. During these years Yilmaz was a frustrated and selfish player who used to make plenty of bad decisions.

Last season, under the guidance of veteran coach Senol Gunes, Yilmaz finally began to grow mentally. He finished 2010/11 with 19 goals and was a key figure in Trabzonspor `s close title race with Fenerbahce, which they lost only by goal-difference.

Burak Yilmaz is a complete striker: powerful, fast, good in the air and lethal in front of the keeper. His technique is a bit above average in Turkish terms and he still lacks enough accuracy with his passes. Yilmaz tends to play as a striker in Trabzonspor 's 4-2-3-1 attacking formation, but he constantly switches positions with left winger Hamit Altintop, with whom he has great understanding. Yilmaz is a perfect player for counter attacks using his speed. He is also useful in possession football due to his constant movement and work on the field.

His new found form has earned Yilmaz a place in the Turkish national team, and he scored 3 goals in the Euro-2012 qualifying campaign, including the match winner against Azerbaijan that secured Guus Hiddink`s team a playoff berth. "Burak is a modern professional footballer," said the former Netherlands, South Korea, Australia and Russia coach, "I like his determination and hard-working character. He never complains about anything in training. He gives power to the whole team and never avoids taking risks in matches. He is the type of player you rarely see nowadays."

Yilmaz is attached in a contract with Trabzonspor until 2015, but it will be no surprise if a big European club will try to snatch him up way before. But it won`t be cheap, as his market value is estimated at around 8 million Euro.

Ulan Burak

He played his first match and is already the second most offside player in the Champions' League. Notice the minutes listed as well.

Even crazier is the fact that nearly all of those were in the first 45 minutes

Burak scored two more today, bringing his tally to 13 goals over 10 matches (although he only played in 8 of them).

First goal was a tap-in and was probably off-sides. Second was decent finishing after great build-up. Most impressive was a free-kick goal they didn't count.

Giants chase Yilmaz

9 November 2011
AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are tracking Trabzonspor striker Burak Yilmaz, reports in Turkey suggest.

Burak has attracted the interest of some of Europe's biggest clubs in recent months after scoring 13 goals in his first eight Super Lig games and a number of suitors have been alerted to his five million euro buy-out clause.

The Serie A champions are considering a move for the Turkey star to deputise for the ailing Antonio Cassano, according to Turkish newspaper HaberTurk.

However, Sporx.com claims the Italians will face competition from Borussia Dortmund, CSKA Moscow and Zenit St Petersburg, who are also said to be weighing up a move for the former Besiktas man.

I doubt its reliable since its citing reports from Turkiye but wow at the 5 million buyout clause

Back on the goal trail tonight with a hat-trick suck it up haters. Takes him to 16 goals for the break.
He's no gifted footballer but make him some space and he'll bang in the goals in this garbage league.
If Senol the stubborn moron didn't insist on playing him as a lone striker he'd probably be over 20 goals by now and Tirabzon would be higher up the league.

Of course we will hate. This guy has done nothing in big games and in the CL. In the Turkish league he can complain to the refs all day long. In the CL they told him to shut his mouth and he could not score. He is a shit footballer with a shit mentality who is just getting by in Turkey.

He sucks! big deal, scored against a team that has lost their last 5 games and had no coach today. Bravo! in Europe? 50 offsides in 2 games, 0 goals, 0 shots just run around like a headless chicken.

Basically, he scored against a team in turmoil, and very well likely will go back down after this season. Proving that if he doesn't score, Trabzonspor can't do well.

What I'm reading right now is so typical.. When a team concedes goals, it's always the fault of Goalkeeper and defence.. when they don't score, it's the strikers fault..

Burak would have scored +25 goals in this league if he had decent players behind him. The level of delivery doesn't get even close to the quality of last season when he had players like Jaja and Selcuk Inan feeding him with through balls. Now he's just playing with a bunch of Kazma's. Do you guys even take this kind of stuff under consideration when you make these anal-yses?

The guy works hard but has no follow through. Umut got at least 10 goals in each season in how many seasons at Trabzon? So basically Burak needs to be spoon fed, which you can say about any other player in his position. So imagine Elmander being given that kind of service? He would probably score all the chances created.

Arda is Arda right? He played well at GS, on the NT and he is playing well in Spain now. Quality is quality regardless of who you play with. This guy is not quality, he just works hard. He's like Umit Ozat. I don't really get what your point is. You say that he's playing with people who are not as good as they were last year, so basically saying that his success stems from those who can feed him.

Remember when Niang came to us last year? Thats a quality striker. Burak simply is not on that level. Last year if they had another striker instead of Burak maybe that striker would have scored that many goals too no?
