-Road to Kadikoy-

I swear, I am so positive, you guys have no idea. I've never been this positive and optimist in my life about anything. We are in the Uefa Cup and I believe we can lift the cup. I am opening this thread fully believing that we will lift this cup at Kadikoy. Unfortunately, we got eliminated by Steaua in the Champions League qualification match, but Europe journey is not over. Offside goal, bad game, whatever, it doesn't matter.

We have a great squad with few very good individuals. Far better than last year. All we need is positiveness and we will have success. Our last year at Ali Sami Yen as well. I think it will be special. Everything is in the air, we just have to grab it.

Friday, we will find out our first victim on the road for Kadikoy.

If either team manages to make the final, I'm sorry but for this year only I'll be hoping they lose. I don't usually care too much about the banter, but to have GS or BJK winning the UEFA Cup at Sukru Saracoglu, it'd be too much :D

Positive for GS - with the types of people on your board, you'll likely see a lot more time & effort put into the UEFA Cup this season than would've been for the CL. Afterall, wasn't it a certain club presidents 'biggest dream' to win the UEFA Cup at Kadikoy? ;)

the positivity is bursting out :D :D

i really hope we go far. these are a few things we should do:

1.) start de sanctis every game

2.) get a good rb

3.) experiment with nonda and umit to see who works better with baros

4.) we have to do something with our defense

You know this movie The Replacements? It is a funny movie of American Football with Keanue Reeves and Gene Hackman.

It is the story of a team's players going on a strike because they find their wages low (The star quarterback argues about not earning over 10 mil $ a year instead he is earning 8 mil $). They have not been able to go to the play-offs for the past 4 years. Then comes in the replacement players, who are ordinary people who played competitive football sometime in their life, and they take the team to the play-offs.

Well the lesson is that you got to have heart, for anything that you do. If you don't have it, then no matter how much quality you possess, you will never be successfull in what you do. So the question is, whether the foreign players we have are going to have it or not. Because for the past 3-4 years Turkish players in the squad did all they could do for this team. Now it is foreigners' turn.

Yeah, 1 qualification match. I don't know who our opponents might be. I'm guessing they are strong. But, it's Galatasaray year in Uefa!

i truly believe that we have what it takes to beat a lot of teams in the uefa cup. we are much better than last year, but still not good enough for the cl. with another 2-3 transfers in the next season we can talk about being competitive in the cl. this year uefa cup is where we belong imo.
