2011-12 Sports Toto Super League season starts at last

2011-12 Sports Toto Super League season starts at last

September 09, 2011, Friday/ 12:22:00

The 2011-12 Sports Toto Super League season, scheduled to kick off on Aug. 5, was postponed to Sept. 9 due to an ongoing, unprecedented match-fixing scandal, and again brought forward one day due to the Turkish national team's Euro 2012 qualifying commitments.

The ongoing match-fixing scandal will certainly cast a pall over Turkish football this season. ‘Let football talk from now on,' says the ad of Super League broadcaster LİG TV. But that looks more or less like wishful thinking unless the Turkish Football Federation gets its act together and does what it has to do: act without fear or favor

Trabzonspor, last season's runner-up, takes on Manisaspor today while Beşiktaş travels to Eskişehir. Newcomers Samsunspor and Mersin İdmanyurdu are also in action, with Samsun hosting Ankara's Gençlerbirliği (5:30 p.m.) and Mersin entertaining another capital representative, Ankaragücü (7:30 p.m.).

The big problem this season is that the match-rigging scandal has engulfed football like wildfire and until the dark clouds hovering over Turkish football have cleared, there will be little or no enthusiasm for the sport this season.

“Let football talk from now on,” says the ad of Super League broadcaster LİG TV. But that looks more or less like wishful thinking unless the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) gets its act together and does what it has to do: act without fear or favor.

Several teams are allegedly involved in the game manipulation saga, but some are more involved than others. Fenerbahçe, with Chairman Aziz Yıldırım and other top aides at İstanbul's Metris Prison, seems to tower above all the other culprits mentioned in the scandal.

Beşiktaş, with coach Tayfur Havutçu and two other top officials, follows. Then comes Trabzonspor with no team officials or players in jail; however, Chairman Sadri Şener and two of his officials have been referred to the TFF's Professional Football Disciplinary Committee (PFDK) for further investigation.

The adverse effects of the scandal were instrumental in Trabzonspor being eliminated from the qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. But lucky Trabzonspor was “promoted” to the Champions League proper -- without kicking a ball -- after Turkish champion Fenerbahçe was kicked out of the competition by UEFA for alleged game manipulation and Trabzonspor was called upon to take its place.

The Black Sea Storm, Trabzonspor's nickname, thus will be facing Manisaspor in an upbeat mood this evening. The problem, though, is that too many players have left the Storm and coach Şenol Güneş is trying to put a team together with too many newcomers.

Egemen Korkmaz (Beşiktaş), Ibrahima Yattara (Al Shabab), Selçuk İnan (Galatasaray), Jaja (Al Ahli), Ceyhun Gülselam (Galatasaray), Umut Bulut (Toulouse), Drago Gabriç and Engin Baytar (Galatasaray) are gone with the wind.

With big bucks from UEFA for its promotion to the big-time Champions League, the Storm is pulling no punches in signing new players. Didier Zokora (Sevilla), Sercan Kaya (Bucaspor), Eren Albayrak (Bursaspor), Barış Özbek (Galatasaray), Paulo Henrique (Westerloo), Adrian Mierzejewski (Polonia Warszawa), Aykut Akgün (Karşıyaka), Halil Altıntop (Eintracht Frankfurt), Ondrej Celustka (Slavia Prague), Sefa Akın Başıbüyük (Çorumspor) and Volkan Şen (Bursaspor) are some of the new arrivals at Trabzon. But, unfortunately, there are no big names among this lot.

“Too many cooks spoil the broth,” they say. Therefore making these all these new players perform as a team won't be easy for Trabzonspor coach Güneş.

Eagles aiming for maximum points

The Black Eagles, as Beşiktaş is known, also got caught up in the scandal for alleged game manipulation in the Ziraat Turkish Cup it won last season. The Eagles pledged to return the trophy until their name is cleared, but that did not stop their coach and two other officials from being put behind bars.

Portuguese trainer Carlos Augusto Soares da Costa Faria Carvalhal, or simply Carlos Carvalhal, was hired as interim coach until Havutçu is set free. The much-traveled Carvalhal has led the Eagles to the UEFA Europa League proper and so he is currently a happy man.

The Eagles did not sit on the fence in pre-season but also jumped on the transfer bandwagon, acquiring Egemen Korkmaz (Trabzonspor), Mustafa Pektemek (Gençlerbirliği), Burak Kaplan (Bayer Leverkusen), Veli Kavlak (Rapid Wien), Tanju Kayhan (Rapid Wien), Sidnei (Benfica, on loan), Mehmet Akyüz (Tavşanlı Linyitspor), Ersan Gülüm (Adanaspor), Manuel Fernandes (Valencia) and Bebe (Man United, on loan).

The bad news is that Brazil junior international star Bebe, a formidable attacker brought in to boost the Black Eagles' offense, suffered a serious injury while on national duty and will be sidelined for at least six months.

Beşiktaş in the meantime offloaded Erhan Güven (Mersin İdmanyurdu), goalkeeper Hakan Arıkan (Mersin İdmanyurdu,), Bobo (Cruzeiro), Matteo Ferrari, Nihat Kahveci, Mert Nobre (Mersin İdmanyurdu) and Rıdvan Şimşek (Karabükspor, on loan).

The Eagles need to beat Eskişehir to boost their morale ahead of their Europa League match against Israel's Maccabi next Thursday. Beşiktaş is a better team than Eskişehirspor; however, because football is not mathematics, Carvalhal's men cannot afford to count their chickens before they hatch. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. and the referee will be Bünyamin Gezer.

The Turkish sports minister on Thursday assured Maccabi Tel Aviv of its safety ahead of next week's match. Suat Kılıç told a televised news conference that the match will be played in the “highest level of [Turkish] hospitality,” next Thursday and Israeli players will [safely] return home. The game comes amid heightened tensions between the two nations over Israel's refusal to apologize for the death of eight Turks and a Turkish-American in a raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship last year.
