The time has finally come. Take out your Japanese Flags... it's time to go to Kadikoy.
As we all know, this is the second time the teams are meeting up against each other this season. The first game which was held in Inonu Stadium ended in a 2-1 win for Besiktas with the goals being scored by Carew and Mustafa Dogan (in case anyone needs a reminder:http://rapidshare.de/files-en/252323/BJK-febe.wmv.html). Once again Besiktas is looking to beat Fenerbahce. This time Besiktas go over to Kadikoy to play with Fenerbahce. Did I say play with?
Besiktas have been preparing and training for this game all week. Physically, they should be pumped and ready to go. Mentally, they have a boost in morale from last weeks 4-1 win against Ankaragucu. John Carew showed us that he is prepared and ready to show Fenerbahce who their daddy is. As we all know "FENER ZENCI SEVER" (Carew, Nouma, Amokachi, Madida, Ferdinand...) hopefully Carew will re-spark that love just as he did earlier this season against FB.
Riza Hoca stated that he is going to Kadikoy to win. Hopefully, this will be the case. This is the first time the team is playing against Fener under the direction of Riza Hoca. Riza hoca has been doing well since he came to Besiktas. Currently, he maintains 7 wins, 2 draws, and only one loss from the 10 games he has directed thus far. I think this game will really show us what our hoca is about. For the past 3 years Besiktas has not lost in Kadikoy. Besiktas plan to continue this trend and extend it into the 4th year. I'm sure this record along with other factors ($15k bonus) are motivators for the entire team.
I am sure Riza hoca has finely tuned the team for this game. The team must be in sync with each other and be prepared defensively for FB attacks. We too must primarly shift our focus on an offensive strategy. With these types of games, who ever scores first has a big advantage. Both teams will be looking for that initial goal. Most likely FB more than BJK. This is the toughest game FB has in its remaining 7 game schedule. Not only is it tough it's very important to them. This can possibly be the breaking point for FB if they lose.
We must maintain a very tight defense. We can not allow FB to create any attacks or counter attacks. The defense must be kept up field and we need to press the shit outta them. We can break down FB at their midfield and hopefully be able to score. We must be very careful of Anelka, Alex, and Tuncay. Our defensive end needs to be all over these guys and give them no room to breathe. Plain and simple: keep FB away from our goal. Carew and Dursun seem ready to go for this game. Hopefully they put on a good performance and get us those goals.
This is definitely going to be a great game. Both teams are going to go at it. May the team who plays better win.

I want Carew to score and for Sergen to be subbed in and score the second one (His personal 100th goal).
