Hakan Sukur actually made a point? Cenk agreeing with Hakan? The Mayans were right, we are doomed come December 21st.

And anyone who takes anything from one of these "pundit" shows seriously doesn't know a thing.

To lazypro, if it wasn't for the media and rival fans accusing Emre of being a racist without due justification, he'd still be on this team. Emre does have his own problems and doesn't help himself out at times, but he'd be helpful at this point.
You can't argue his point. Making quality runs rather than looking at how much someone ran in total as a whole just makes sense.

TBH Yilmaz Vural would even do well with this squad...

This squad has some of the best players to grace the league, there not old fogeys either, Meireles, Sow, Topal, Krasic, Stoch are all in their prime...

It's horrible for the sake of Turkish football to see such a strong squad being played so dreadfully...

Will it take an embarrassing defeat by Cimbom for heads to roll... Because the way Cimbom are going they'll kill Aykot

I don't think so, he hasn't been successful outside Fener which I'd attribute to a particular spirit and shape of the team - full of Brazilians - at that time.

BTW, one thing hasn't failed, as usual, the beauty of Fener girls :proud:

It's got more to do with footballing cultures.

Turkey and Brazil have similar football cultures, which is why Brazilian players have done so well in Turkey over the years.

Look at some of the best foreign players to have played in the league, Taffarel, Jardel, Alex etc or the way Moritz, Nobre have settled in.

Brazilian and South American managers are smart choices for Turkish clubs, Western/Northern Europeans struggle more.

LOL Yilmaz Vural would destroy this team. He's managed to relegate basically every team he's managed

Anyway on a serious note, if someone liek Zico were to come back. It's just gotta be hands off and let him do everything. Too bad fat fukk would always come in to the dressing room with his obnoxious rants/motivation.

This team is doomed unless we get a foreign board haha.

First Aziz, then Aykut, followed by Alex all have to leave prior to the start of next season in my opinion. Also, Bekir should be exiled.

We need a fresh start, the team culture forming is reminding me more and more of the deadbeat club atmosphere of 2002.

I heard Meireles's injury is trivial, he'll be ready against Kasimpasa and LIGTV also reports your midfield and attack's going to be:

Krasic - LW
Kuyt - RW
Alex- CAM
Sow - ST

IF that's true then I guarantee we'll all be saying 'why didn't he do this before'. I know we've had injuries and all, but he has had the chance to play that lineup or something similar, but hasn't.

Some of the teams we've been playing have not been some sort of elite sides (minus Europe). Simple coaching mistakes like taking players out 10-15 minutes too early has cost us a lot so far this season.

The Marseille match was so annoying. It's been awhile since we beat a decent side in Europe, not to mention at home period for a bit now. It actually reminded me of Fenerbahce's last big slump winning away in Europe (but remember that was a long ugly one) against AIK in UEFA cup, when we blew a 3-1 half-time lead. This time was different though, because we actually looked quite solid against a semi-decent side and because we have a much better team. That's obvious when you see that our preferred free-kick taker was Stevic :howler:... probably had the only good moment of his career with his super human free-kick so don't let that fool you.

You build a team from the back, and if the defence insists on bypassing the midfield then the attack is also nullified.

Our defence is compromised of mostly Turks who adhere to iKoot.

Thats true, we bad mouth guys like Daum but he had Lugano-Edu right? Or was it Lugano and Yobo? Anyways Zico is right, 1 CB + 1 monkey will do us no good if we just boot the ball up. I've been reading the stupid comments on the papers about who runs the most and bla bla, the players that need to touch the ball don't get enough touches and players who are already running alot like Topuz are running more for no reason making it seem like they are working 100x more than the other guy.

Its dissapointing that after 3 seasons at the club Aykut still don't have it figured out. I realize there is a lack of talent in Turkey, but to play Bekir as CB? Should have gotten another Turk and sold him off a long time ago. IMO he is no better than Baki Mercimek.

Granted Bekir is bad, I mean really bad. But dude to compare him to Baki Mercimek? Does anybody remember how terrible that guy was?

I swear I'd rather pick out a random person from this forum to play defense instead of him.

He got all that playing time because he was European raised and looked like a Turkish version of YAPISTIR STAM.
