Turkish pipe dreams

There probably isn’t a bigger fan than yours truly when the Turkish national football team is in action. When it comes to Turkish clubs however, I’m amazed at how much we, as a nation, truly overestimate ourselves. Take a look at recent headlines on Fanatik or Fotomac, especially the later which now claims that Zico will be coaching Fenerbahce next season. The same publication had previously claimed that Cuper, and World Cup winner Scolari were interested in the position.

I guess there’s nothing wrong with dreaming, but when it comes to the point where every one of the big Istanbul clubs–beginning every season–claim they will win a European trophy (all too common), it only leads to dissapointment at the end of that season, with players and staff being shuffled around, only for the whole fiasco to start all over again the very next season.

Having said that, Besiktas will make waves in Europe next season.
