December 20, 2009

Fenerbahce football team recorded an important win in Trabzon and finished the first half at the top of the table. Thanks to the single goal by Dani Guiza at ’56 in a match which could have been a lot easier if he didn’t miss the sitter in the first half with an empty net.

Team looked pretty lively especially with a midfield made of Emre Belozoglu, Cristian, Mehmet Topuz and Ozer Hurmaci. These players add a lot of strength and balance to the team. Besides they can easily play in both offensive and defensive roles when necessary.

Four Match Ban to Colin Kazim-Richards

November 27, 2009

Turkish FA banned Colin Kazim-Richards for 4 matches after his sent-off in the Besiktas – Fenerbahce derby. The reason behind the 4 match ban was the words Colin Kazim-Richards said to the assistant referee.

Emre Belozoglu out for a Month

November 24, 2009

Emre Belozoglu got an injury on the last matchday against Besiktas (3-0). The groin injury seems to leave Emre out of action for about a month. The utility and hardworking midfilder was one of the key factors in Fenerbahce’s success this year and coach Christoph Daum will have hard times to find a replacement in his calibre.

Mehmet Topuz and Ozer Hurmaci are the main contenders for the position. He earlier used Mehmet Topuz in that area and moved Colin Kazim-Richards to the right wing at times when Emre was not available. This scenario agains seems likely.

Roberto Carlos on the Verge of Leaving ?

November 14, 2009

Roberto Carlos’ name have been all around the Brazilian media about his possible move to his country to Corinthians  in the January transfer window. Fenerbahce club have made some announcements through Daum, the manager, regarding the issue and stated that the Brazilian will be with the club.

The position Roberto Carlos is playing have two more potential replacements and one of them is regular Brazilian NT player Andre Santos and the other on is Wederson. So having replacement options in the squad make this transfer rumours look possible and a possible departure of Roberto Carlos will open a place in the foreign player limit which will give the club a chance to strengthen the squad with a striker as there are only two target strikers in the squad; Guiza and Semih Senturk.

Things will be lot clearer in few weeks. For now, Roberto Carlos is staying in Fenerbahce.
