Elazigspor is a new promoted team. It is a good choice by the management to continue with Bulent Uygun who promoted Elazigspor by finishing in top 2 of the Turkish Division 1 table last season. Because he is familiar with Turkish Super League. If you wonder the squad of Elazigspor then know that Elazigspor are shaped from top to bottom. I hope this massive change in the team would not bring trouble in the future to Elazigspor. The new players may be well experienced but on the other hand Elazigspor may become the oldest team in Turkish Super League. Thum who scored more than 10 goals last season was brought from Genclerbirligi. Amr Zaki (from Zamalek), Pascal (from Sion) and Bilica (from Fenerbahce) are strong transfers. I want to mention that Bilica became popular when he was playing in Sivasspor whose coach was Bulent Uygun at that time. But the new goal keeper Ivesa is like an atomic bomb according to his performance in the last 3 season in Eskisehirspor where he came from. And it is a question mark to bring such players like Emre Toraman, Orhan Ak and Gokhan Emreciksin who are retired players for me. I guess the success of Elazigspor is depended on foreign players and if they would not perform then they will have trouble during the season. Sinan Ozkan is suspended and Ali Zorlu is injured. Other bad news is Elazigspor will play this match in Izmir as their stadium is not ready for the league matches.


Fenerbahce opened the season early as they had to play Champions League qualification matches. Fenerbahce brought very important players to the squad. Kuyt (from Liverpool), Krasic (from Juventus), Mehmet Topal (from Valencia), Egemen (from Besiktas), and Hasan Ali are all talents. Fenerbahce played 3 official matches and I can only count the one that they played at away against Vaslui. Fenerbahce did not impress me in other matches. In all of these matches the fact I figured is Fenerbahce have serious problems in defense line. Besides Fenerbahces midfield is not well organized in forwarding the ball to the dangerous area where they can hit the nets of their rivals. Other negative point is we did not see anything from the new transfers except Kuyt who is playing the best football in offense of Fenerbahce. I can say that Aykut Kocaman will solve these problems but in the short term it looks like Fenerbahce will loose many points. Especially today and in the midweek in Russia from Spartak Moscow. The other handicap for Fenerbahce is they are going to play a very important match in the midweek against Spartak Moscow which the winner of the round will qualify to Champions League group. Therefore I am sure Aykut Kocamans brain is divided into two. So the players of Fenerbahce too. He may rest Kuyt during the match and replace him with Saw and also Volkan Demirel the main goal keeper is injured and will be replaced by Mert Gunok who did terrible mistakes in the last 2 matches he played last week. He has no confident these days and need a lot of time to play with his potential.


In the eve of important match against Spartak Moscow there is a danger waiting for Fenerbahce. They are not playing like a team and their substitute goal keeper is a disaster. I do not give Fenerbahce a chance of defeating Elazigspor easily. Fenerbahce will travel to Russia without going to Istanbul and they are already in the mood of Champions League.
