Gaziantepspor Unofficial

Major problem. Tickets are no longer available at the window. What's going on..? (Hapoel decided not to sell tickets for "away" supporters.)

Charter left for Rotterdam (via Schipol) at 9:40am. About 140 people on board, including 20 players. Hasan Ozer (injured) and Mehmet Polat (...) didn't travel.

Ömer; Ibrahim, Bouazizi, Mehmet Polat, Ilhan, Johnson, Cem Baki (46.Preko), Erdal (44.Devran); Lazarov (87.Hasan Yurt), Hasan Özer.

"We didn't play well, but got the result we needed."

After an appeal, Ömer's suspension has been lifted. There's justice.

Jaziri, Bülent, and Mehmet Polat remain sideleined. Bouazizi rejoined training. Polat's conditions will be known on the macth day. Hasan Yurt stands by.

Ömer received one-match ban from PFDK because of the comment he made after the FB match. There's this pattern this season.

Training sessions for the Adana match begin.

(This pic doesn't look very new...)

After the bitter defeat, more pains: Team is not in a great shape. Bouazizi - didn't break a bone, but very difficult against Adana. Bulent - thigh muscle, uncertain against Adana. Jaziri - aching rib bones. Ibrahim - diagnosis on Tuesday. Omer - PFDK??? Why?

...And the result: Fener 3-1 team (vHooijdonk, Tuncay, Yusuf) (47.Lazarov)
Ömer; Ilhan, Bouazizi (72.Bekir), M.Polat, Nuri; Devran (83.Jaziri), Johnson, Erdal (73.Erhan Namli), Cem Baki; Lazarov, Hasan Özer.
(subs: Kaya, Kerem, Hasan Yurt, Preko) (Y: Erdal, Cem Baki, Omer, Lazarov, Nuri, Mehmet Polat)
We did OK for 75 minutes going ahead with Lazarov's header, then vH "fri-kikked" past Ömer and Antep defense crumbled. We NEED a victory over Adana next week to catch up with ... Adana.

Ibrahim is off today and in Sivas this week. Here, in "his" NetCafe.

By the way, the pic was posted at the TNN Net at 12:20 TSI. It's been ranked No.1 all day, even after midnight. Why? Neden? It never happens with Gaziantep newspaper sites.

....Err, Fener match? We're 1-2-14 there as long as the history goes.
