Playing real well today and already up 1-0 through Henri Bienvenu who latched onto Ozgur's perfect cross from the left side.

Two forwards today, what a surprise from Saglam. Took him 25 weeks to realize.

Jorquera nice try with the outside of his foot that just went wide, would have been a nice goal had he scored. Erkan missed a 1v1 about 10 minutes ago right after we went up 1-0 as well. We are playing very good.

1-0 at HT

Could easily be 3-0 but some sloppy pay as usual from Necati, Erkan had his shot 1v1 saved by Ivesa and Ivesa made another good save off a deflection from Jorquera.

From our corner all the way to the ELazig net, what a setup but Erkan misses in the end.

Kamara in for Tarik

1-0 win in the end. Very dangerous attacks from ELazig in the last minute of stoppage, Vranjes missed a clear header that I thought would be a goal.

Yeah, I'm amazed he missed that one. All he had to do was nod it back towards Boffin's left as he would have been scrambling to close his right hand post.

Pretty flat performance from us. I expected more. You guys didn't have to do an awful lot to take the 3pts today.

Even having said that....we could have got at least a point out of it had our players made the right decisions in the final third (especially through Cangele). Deniz had a good chance but a last ditch tackle put it over the bar for a corner.

All in all, it was a frustrating game where I had the feeling 60mins in that we weren't going to score. The same lack of belief showed in the players, which was the most disappointing thing of all.

Mind you, a big part of our lack of threat in the game stemmed from the fact that I think today we played against the best defence we've come across all season. Eskisehir is a mighty impressive team defensively.

Hurriyet was great at cutting out a lot of our midfield pass traffic. And then you have those two physical beasts Servet and Akaminko in the middle of the back 4. Deniz Yilmaz looked a wee bit lost in the middle of those 2 with Hurriyet just in front of them.

What is worrying is the fact that (looking at the past 2 weeks) teams have found the way of making us less effective going forward. Both Eskisehir and Kasimpasa set their teams up with a very organised defence, giving us less space behind their back 4 to run at and exploit. We're mainly a counter attacking team with a lot of pace up front and it is starting to look one dimensional. That's my biggest worry for the remaining 9 games of the season.

We are blessed with one of the best defenses in the league but cursed with the worst forwards you guys had collected 14 points in the second half of the season compared to our measly 6. Not easy work and we should have taken our chances in the second half. I swear if Serdar Gurler would have scored in that opening few minutes it would be an automatic Elazig win but Boffin came up huge as he's done all season.

Yeah, I think it would have been a very different game had Serdar scored in the 3rd minute. Not sure what the result would have been (nothing but a hypothetical at this point) but I feel it might have brought your back line up a little bit and leave us a bit more space than we ended up having.

Yeah, you only got 6pts but you got the FB, GS, BJK and Kasimpasa games out of the way. We have a lot of tough games ahead. Gencler away next week, Trabzon at home after that and then Kayseri Erciyes away. I feel that stretch of 3 games will play a major part in our story for this season. Because after that we still have BJK and GS at home. We have to get something like 4pts from those 3 games to give ourselves a chance. Despite our great form since the winter break.....we're still only 1pt from 15th placed Rize.

So, that win takes you up to 5th, right? Didn't I tell you that all it takes is a couple of positive results and you would end up in a Europa place? It is that kind of league this season. Surprise results each week.

Well if you don't count FB, who are barred from European competitions next season, then Eskisehir are in 4th position which is the last spot for Europa, then again even if Eskisehir happen to miss out on Europa via the league they've still got the cup. It's going to be an interesting 9 weeks in Super Lig. Only 3pts separating 8 teams fighting for a Europa spot. Even Gencler who are only 5pts above the relegation zone have a chance at a Europa spot.

Yeah teams in 4-11 place are separated by 3 points at most. If Bursa wins today, which they will they're above us also. Let's see what happens.

Our fans paid a tribute to the late Ediz Bahtiyaroglu in the last game. Before and after the anthem.

Yeah people were praising the Elazig fans in forums and Facebook fan pages :thmbup: we knew this from last year and our away game at Elazig. Hope they always stay like this and not get into arguments with opposing fans.
