I sadly didn't see the match, but it was nice to read that Hagi gave a fair chance to the youngsters. It's good experience for them to play in important friendlies like this, getting them ready for CL next year. Necati really is becoming a huge star I hope he will end this season as the top goal-scorer in the Super Lig.
I was a good game against a good team and in front of almost 50.000 spectators. We controlled the game and we would have been been leading by 2 goals if Ayhan hadn't touched Hakan's header on the goal line.
The 2nd half was ruined by all the substitutions. Schalke made 9 subs while we made 11.
We played very well except the last 20 min, controlled most of the game. It looks like when we are hyped up we do very well but I guess we are going to struggle against the mid level teams in the Turkish teams again.
