They are currently getting thrashed by Besiktas which means we are in for another tough game. Emenike is back. Sow, Webo, Caner, Egemen out.
First things first you cant compare Turkish league to NBA or NFL ... Because the Government of USA does not get involved with sports at all.He is employed by this league.
The NBA and NFL have extremely strict rules on what players can or can't say about the league. In the United States if Gokhan had made a speech like that, they'd probably ride him out of the sport. Not to mention the constant ridicule by the media he'd receive.
Keep your mouth shut and play football. Don't go ape shit like a 12 year old when a call goes against you. Don't bum rush the ref for making a bad call. This is the advice I'd give these idiots.
I don't think the issue is this one match, its the fact that hte past 3 years this club has been dragged through hell and at first people thought that it was a legit case. But when Aziz said 'ulke elden gidiyor' you can see he was somewhat right - doesn't mean that his stupid comments about everyone doing sike but FB is true, but it means that there is some serious string pulling behind the scenes that no one is really able to understand.SS, if there are conspiracy theories or not are a different debate all together. In Turkiye everybody cries conspiracy after every single bad call.
In a given season BJK fans will complain the TFF is against them, then we'll hear it from Gala then we'll hear it from Fener.
If we're to believe it, apparently the TFF is completely anti big three.
It is not Gokhan Gonul's place to give such ridiculous speeches. If I'm the head of the TFF I'm taking action. I'm either banning him or a few games or giving a huge fine.
If I'm running Fenerbahce I'd be completely concerned with how my players are turning into cavemen every time a call goes against them. I would take action against Egemen for bum rushing the ref in the fashion he did.
Blaming the ref for Egemen's actions are only going to embolden players to act this way in the future.
Turkey's transparency ranking is 53rd in the world in 2013, and was 49th in 2012. It's getting worse in terms of corruption, and when you see more corruption you'll likely notice some truths coming out of the conspiracies everyone talks about. Of course some are exaggerated too.
Secularists think Ergenekon is a conspiracy towards the Secular Guard in Turkey, and they believe the conspiracy claims have undeniable backing. Gulenists and AKP supporters laugh at this.
Gulenists think new private school reforms is a conspiracy towards the hizmet movement. AKP supporters, Secularists laugh at this.
Fenerbahce fans think the match fixing investigation is a conspiracy towards the club. Other fans laugh at this.
Now, Erdogan think that Gulenists are out to get him in a graft scandal. Secularists laugh at this as the two take shots at each other over the media.
So, we have people in this forum who find themselves akin to probably one of the scenarios above. The reality is, it's true, when it comes to your own agenda things are true and you can't deny it. But, when you have an 'outsider' so to speak to look at one of those scenarios they think you're crazy.
I'm not saying the match fixing case is legit or not legit, but it's funny that the people who call bullshit on the match fixing case are likely thinking Ergenekon or what's going on in Turkey now are legitimate things, not conspiracies.
Gotta love corruption, because the people get infected by it too.
Well I can understand why emre sucks these days, just came off a injury and he is getting old and I feel like Baroni is upgraded version of selcuk but Meireles I don't understand him. He has the talent and seems like he doesn't want to put more effort in the game. In my opinion, that was an another waste of 10 mil for him. I don't know how many games he missed due to red cards and injuries since he singed with Fener. I would say half a season he sat in front of his TV and watched Fener games.Would be great. Salih and Alper > Christian, Emre and Meireles.
