I read an article the other day that Aykut wants to rest Alex for this game. Looks like Fanatik took it one further with Sow as well...

Still hard to believe, but I think something tells me that Aykut is mentally preparing his best players for the playoffs. All things staying equal after tomorrow, if we end up beating Galatasaray in both of our matches against them, we'll have our fate in our own hands with the Besiktas and Trabzon games. Just a thought though, I kinda get the risk he's taking and im.... intrigued, im not happy or upset about it, im just curious on how he's preparing the players behind the scenes.

There is the cup match in midweek too.

I wonder how Besiktas and Trabzon approach the play-offs, do they play to win or play to ensure someone else doesn't win? :err:

Yeah the cup is another element for sure, didn't think of that. As much as I despise that thing, its admittingly.... *ahem*important*ahem* to get some sort of silverware this season.

Maybe he's going all in for the cup.

It's obvious how one team will approach the play-oss. Their sore-loser president might even give a bonus to his players for losing against GS.

Woah, pretty gutsy move right there. Hopefully it pays off.

It's dead set stupid, we always struggle against teams who are there to fight tooth and nail for a draw, even with our best XI on the park. Hell, we lost two titles in this very round at this very stadium!
