This Wednesday at 21:30. At TRT1 thank God.

We managed to get a win over Bosnia with a young squad. Sabri excelled to the level we all know he has but rarely reaches. Also a 17-year old kid started ffs, how long have I been crying for younger players :( It's a good change from having to endure Hakan and other oldies for too long.

I wonder what Terim has in mind for this one. Should be win nonetheless.

Tolga Zengin - Trabzonspor

Defense
Ugur Boral - Fenerbahce
Ibrahim Kas - Getafe
Sabri Sarioglu - Galatasaray

If the line up is like this (same team as Bosnia game but with Halil replacing Batuhan):

-----------------Halil-------------Mevlut-------------------

Arda------------Ayhan------------Aurelio-----------Kazim--

Hakan----------Servet-------------Kas-------------Sabri---

-------------------------Volkan----------------------------

Subs will be:
Serdar
Ugur
Caglar
Serkan
Yusuf
Nuri
M.Yildiz

Its not too bad, because the subs that we have are enough to fill in for most positions.
If any of the following players get injured or need to be replaced:

Halil or Mevlut - Replaced by M.Yildiz
Arda - Ugur
Aurelio - Nuri
Ayhan - Nuri/Yusuf
Kazim - Sabri moves to RM, Serkan comes into RB.
Balta - Caglar
Servet - Balta, Caglar coming into LB
Kas - Balta, Caglar coming into LB
Sabri - Serkan
Volkan - Serdar

What an undesirable injury situation. BTW Serdar Kulbilge is no longer a Fenerbahce player, he plays for Kocaelispor.

I think should one of Servet or Kas get injured, we would see Hakan Balta switch to central defense with Caglar coming on at LB. I believe Hakan has experience from his Manisa days at CB

:hopeful: :hopeful: For those matches, Volkan, Servet, Zan, all will be fit and Emre could support the sole-center-forward Nihat.

G.Gonul (or Hamit?) silencing fit-again Capel and H.Balta edging David Silva, man, it will be real ones. :hopeful:

He played as 3rd cb in 3-5-2 (and in defensemidfield role at times) at manisa iirc, and terim publicly ruled out his playing at cb during the euros due to that fact, so i wouldnt be too keen on him playing there. Aurelio perhabs?

Why doesnt Terim just call up 1 centre back for back up.......I dont get it, obviously he is underestimating Estonia and this is bad news for us.

Predicted line up from superspor.com

Volkan, Sabri, Servet, İbrahim Kaş, Hakan Balta, Kazım, Aurelio, Ayhan, Arda, Nuri, Halil Altıntop

Apart from Nuri, I think the other 10 players are banko. Nuri may start or Mevlut could start in his place, we will see at game time.

but i know my terim, he`ll take nuri out and start with mevlüt instead. nuri wont ever start untill he's 30 while ayhan will play into his mid-forties.
