Tuncay joins Middlesbrough

Could he have done better? Maybe. Can he still do better in a couple of years? Definitely. Milan were supposedly interested in Tuncay, but would Tuncay see any action with Kaka playing in his same position? Probably not. He’d be another benchwarmer like once-Milanese Hakan Sukur. Tuncay will still be earning a crap load of money. Apparently, he will now earn over 4 million US dollars a year (for four years) in England. Fener’s best offer was about 2.5 million US dollars a year (wages are never guaranteed in Turkey!). Good for him. Even though I support Besiktas myself, I realize that Tuncay is hands down the best player Turkey has ever seen since Sergen Yalcin. Here is a clip of some of Tuncay’s goals in Europe:

  1. If I am honest, I think that it is a good move for him. He is moving into the Premier League, without doubt, the best league in Europe.

    He is moving to a club which were in the 05/06 Uefa Cup Final and who have been in the most cup finals out of the top four in the last 10 years or so, that isn’t bad going if you ask me.

    I hope it works our for him at Middlesbrough, I hope that he manages to adapt to the English style of play, which is very physical. With you being a Besiktas fan, I was wondering, how good is he physically?
