What A Disgrace to the Turkish Football: Ali Sami Yen

 Last night, I was at Ali Sami Yen Stadium for watching Kasımpaşa-Fenerbahçe match. Do you believe that the stadium has 2 gates to host about 7000 fans. I am talking about the covered stand of the stadium. We waited in front of the gates for half an hour. Everyone was pushing each other and some Fenerbahçe fans that I never seen them before among the Kasımpaşa fans at Kasımpaşa Stadium were the source of that mess. They stucked the limited entrances and security system was totally out of order. In the end, all fans standing for half an hour pressed more and broke the stadium's gate. By the way a number of people entered the stadium illegally. No ticket control was made by the staff. It was a real scandal in history of Turkish football. I wish I will never go to Ali Sami Yen Hell again. If it is necessary to mention about the match. It was a little bit odd. 8 goals were scored and Kasımpaşa lost. Kasımpaşa found the first goal in the match, but after stupid player Ersen Martin caused a penalty, the match's destiny totally changed. Kasımpaşa is looking for the next match to gain first 3 points in this season, whlist Fenerbahçe took a fresh breath after losing points in last matches.

Kasımpaşa is ready to beat Fenerbahçe

 Kasımpaşa has started this season with a bad conduct. The team received 3 consecutive defeats in last three matches. However, the team doesn't play bad, it gives some clues about their football quality. Kasımpaşa finds some ocassions during matches, but some unlucky moments ruin all of the matches. The team carries big hopes for Fenerbahçe clash. Kasımpaşa had beated Fenerbahçe away last season 3-1, and Yılmaz Vural is very self confident before the match. Tonight, Ali Sami Yen will witness an exceptional match in its history.

After this minute, Ferhat's team attacked more and found the goals they needed. Young star Emre Sefer also put a big effort on the pitch.Everyone was tired after this exciting match.

Last Developments From Bursaspor, Kasımpaşa and Trabzonspor

 Bursaspor played an unlucky match on monday. The team was leading the match by one goal and some Gaziantepspor fans threw some matters to the field. One of the matters corresponded one of the match's linesmen. The referee decided the match to suspend. The match's result will be decided by TFF. It seems Bursaspor will gain 3 points after all, because Gaziantepspor fans caused that case and Gaziantepspor officials were reponsible for the match's security.
 Kasımpaşa has 2 points in 5 matches yet. This puts big pressure on the footballers and the coach Yılmaz Vural. Their rival is Fenerbahçe at 6th week clash. They are determinant to beat Fenerbahçe, they had beated Fenerbahçe away last season by 3-1. Another statistic supports that Yılmaz Vural's teams always beat Fenerbahçe. This has been proven many times and now Kasımpaşa needs 3 points excessively.
 Trabzonspor is being pointed as a favourite to get title in the league this season. However they lost against pointless Manisaspor last week at home. This was a big shame and shock for the fans. Nobody was expecting this shocking result. Today, the coach Şenol Güneş made a report and admitted: I am not happy here, but I am peaceful. This statement was perceived as an interesting report by the media. How can a person not be happy and be peaceful at the same time? This is the question.

Stop Conscription in Türkiye!..

(Photo: No for prototype conscription, even no conscription at all!..)
 Turkish youth has been suffering conscription (compulsory military service) for long. Nowadays it is being argued to be extended the duration of the military service for university graduates. The framework of the legislation anticipates that the military service (6 months for each university graduate) should be extended to 12 months and by the way non university graduates and university graduates' military service duration should be equal. Türkiye is the only member of the European Council which applies conscription except Azerbaijan. This backward application is boring the Turkish youth. The law wastes the youth's the most productive time at barracks. Well educated youth feel frustrated about the prospective legislation. It is predicted that the legislation won't pass from the T.B.M.M (The Turkish Assembly) and only The Turkish Army requests this ridiculous legislation. Turkish youth is looking forward to helping hands that can solve this concription problem from both inside and outside the country. The Prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan doesn't seem willing toward the prospective legislation, however the press are behaving like the legislation has been approved. Living in such a country sometimes gets vauge. The youth is unifying under a facebook page:  Please help them.

The experienced Dutch coach Hiddink added  "The teams's positive sides are seen both in trainings and matches, we have already been a good team and become stronger now. Khazakstan match may seemed a piece of cake, however they played well disciplinarily. Discipline is the key factor, we can't deny it and we will never. I also believe our fans against Belgium on Tuesday. Şükrü Saraçoğlu Stadium's ambience will be a vital factor for the match."
