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.
