No i dont have to, Tello as left-back or Emre Özkan, even Toraman could be used there(if injuries comes).
Excellent.

I've been enjoying the talks of how good Sivok is as defender at other places.
Clearly :) he's someone cramming because he was contracted as CB.

BJK cannot advance much in UEFA Cup even if they solidified the defense with all the foreigners in stock. Cannot score against Trabzon!!

I cracked with TS' forwards today. It's OK if there are people who were impressed.

BJK were able to win three points easily if there was a game plan and players capable of executing it. On paper, BJK is a much better team. (Else, the best they can look for is 4th place finish.)

Doh.. So much hype on the improved defense.

In the said match last season, they had Yattara and Gokdeniz; BJK had AliT-Toraman-Zan-Uzulmez :)( :(), didn't have Bobo (edit: Bobo came on as sub) nor Holosko and still won (3-2 away).

Have we improved or what? :D

(If BJK had to do with the kind of players - fizzlers! - in a derby, I don't think they stand a chance.)

i am pretty confident with the quality of players we have at our disposal, especially in defense... we haven't had this much depth in the back since 2003
Because of quantity as well. (In 2003, BJK had 5 defensive field players, now 6)

Do you know defense is no issue at GS and they still get heavily criticized?

As for Sivok he was very good today and have been good those games he played. Even you have to admit that now. If we had Zan&Toroman this game we would most probably got slaughtered this game... :rollani:
It's definitely good if you back up your "opinion" with correct data.

As suggested, we fielded Toraman-Zan last season and used three attackers (three-man midfield) and won in Trabzon. (Umut-G.Unal are hardly classified as the best of Superlig)

Sivok played in Antalya and the defense conceded two in the first 36 minutes. He and Zapo also played against a Bonsia team. Do you remember the name of the club? Were they good?

Sivok turned 25 today and he ACTUALLY has no track record as international-class defender. Just two caps between 2005 and 2008 as midfielder (of course, many youth caps, that's why his price has been elevated). Hit blank at Udinese - as midfielder. Regular at Sparta Praha, which has lower coefficients than BJK.
Practically, he's re-started his career and I'm willing to watch his progress (but, no, don't think he'll be ever called for NT again. Zapo has been on the backup list.). In the meanwhile, it's to BJK's advantage to have three solid CB's (four, if to add Zan). We definitely cannot do with just two, domestically and in Europe.

In short, I think Turks have soft spot for a tall Central European defender. The pricier, the better.

At the end of the season, BJK may fail to score against GS, FB, TS, Sivas, etc. and finish fourth in the league (if not worse). Still, I'm positive half of the forum will come back to me saying THE TEAM HAS IMPROVED. :D

(A diminishing minority :) but ...) I don't rush to a conclusion on transfers. Just yet.
