Lol thanks, I was literally about to open this thread. Up tempo from us so far.

Same old story. We got all the ball possesion but no scoring oppurtunities. Seems like set pieces will be our only way of scoring.

Started well and faded. Boring half with just a lot of possession. What is alarming to me, and what has been our problem for years, is off the ball movement. Diego is the only one that consistently shows in space. Otherwise the only option is the diagonal or backwards pass because nothing is available.

What's annoying is the fans at the game booing the team by the 30th minute mark. You can't just kamikaze Konya because that is what they want. They want to break on the counter. We are doing a good job of being patient and probing their defense but we just need a bit more oomph going forward.

That is because the strikers are not that kind of players. We really needed someone like Sow to stick around or a replacement.Bascially someone who creates his own chances upfront.

If we cannot feed the ball to them properly then they should probably look into a player of similar skillset in the winter break. That piece is missing between the strikers and midfield.

How is it that Serkan played like such an asshole for us in all the cup games yet now he's saving all 1v1s?

Boring shit up until the goal. Could've been 3 or 4 nil. Hasan Ali and Gokhan easily the best two. Gokhans crosses suck badly though.

Volkan didn't even touch the ball today. And the booing was mainly at Diego since he lost 2 or 3 possesions.

Vitor subs in volkan for josef and nani for persie. This guy is hopeless
Cause Van Persie was a star today... :rollani: Sorry, but the guy can't just roam around the field because he's a big pilayer.

His subs changed the game up whether you will admit to that or not.

His subs did absolutely nothing, we got into 1 opportunity and scored off a lucky bounce bro. Then Konya just played panicky and we got more chances. Aykuts subs are wat saved him.

U can expect Van Persie to do anything if nobody is feeding him. If Alex was here Van Persie would be at 10+ goals by now.

Lets just hope BJK loses tonight
