I should have noted that this list was incomplete as of yet, as I'm still trying to figure out how to rate some players (mostly defenders as there hasn't been a lot of great or good quality there, mostly average and below average).
I will be responding in this thread in my native language, since I'm a Turk, too.
Kocaman Adam eskilere gerektiği kadar saygı göstermiyorsun.
Volkan'ın Turgay Şeren'den daha önemli, büyük, iyi bir isim olduğunu iddia edemeyiz açık açık.
My list doesn't go by name. It's based on achievements. Was Turgay a great player? Of course he was. You don't play 20 seasons for Galatasaray if you're average. But he played during a time when Turkey made their first World Cup appearance, when we had our best players moving abroad to Italy and France. Turgay didn't and he also didn't have as many memorable moments on the European stage. That, plus much better physique from Volkan puts him ahead of Turgay. It wasn't an easy choice to make, but that's how it fell under my grading guidelines.
Bülent Korkmaz da Alpay'dan iyi bir stoperdi. Böyle bir seçim tam bir fiyasko.
Alpay's achievements abroad put him ahead of Bulent for me. He was regarded as a top defender for Aston Villa and had bigger clubs after him.
Ne kadar kendisinden nefret etsem de Rıdvan, Gökdeniz Karadeniz'den üstün bir oyuncudur. Gökdeniz ve Yıldıray için 2 yıldız daha isabetli derim ayrıca.
Ridvan is one of the most naturally talented players I've seen. However, he played during a time when the level of Turkish football was very bad. Also, his peak at Fenerbahce was cut short. By comparison both Gokdeniz and Basturk excelled at both their league level and on the European stage.
Tümer bile var ama efsane MAF üçlüsünden 1 tanesini bile yazmamışsın.
Again, different time periods. Tumer played in a much stronger league and produced excellent performances in Europe.
Gelelim sıkıntının büyüğüne...
Nihat, F. Tekke, Tuncay nasıl oluyor da Tanju'dan iyi oluyor?
Think about the Super Lig in the late 80s and early 90s. Was Tanju even linked to other clubs after winning the Golden Boot with his 39 goal season? Nihat on the other hand finished second in the La Liga twice and second in most goals in 2003. He was also one of the best players in the EURO 2008 semi-finals run. Fatih Tekke produced two seasons as good as Tanju's in a tougher Super Lig and then moved to Russia where he helped with an UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup. Finally, Tuncay produced better performances for the national team (80 caps/22 goals compared to 31 caps/9 goals) and had great performances in the Premier League for several seasons.
Thanks for the feedback guys
I'll be working on this and if there are any suggestions I'm open to them
