It is not usual that the teams I support win on the same weekend. This weekend was different, and I hope my luck goes into the week to.
On Saturday Besiktas scored an important victory away to Trabzonspor, the so-called 4th Giant of Turkish football. After conceding 2 very stupid goals in 6 minutes, every one was fearing for the worst. However Ziya Dogan, the trainer of Trabzon, made some very important tactical mistakes, and we were able to comeback in 20 minutes. We dictated our game and found the winning goal in 70th minute. Due to a clear error of judgment by the linesman our goal keeper was sent of on 80th minute. As we had used our 3 subs, the goalscorer Bobo had to play as the goalie for the last 10 minutes. After his perfect performance we won the game. It is not the first big game we won without a goalie. We had won in Fenerbahce stadium 4-3 in 2004 without a goalie too.
On Sunday the most unlikely of the outcomes did take place and Kimi Raikkonnen won the 2007 Drivers Championship for Ferrari. This concludes a perfect year for Ferrari who also won the Constructors Championship.
Yesterday Arsenal played a perfect game to beat Slavia Prague 7-0 in Champions League.
I hope some of this football magic will touch Besiktas players today and we will beat Liverpool in the most beautiful stadium in the world....
