WE HAD TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF BESIKTAS DRAW, GALATASARAY DRAW, AND CLEAR THE GAP, NOT STAY 7 POINT BEHIND FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!!
THERE IS NOT A SINGLE EXCUSE FOR ARAGONES ABOUT THIS GAME, ITS NOT AN EXCUSE THAT SELCUK, EDU AND JOSICO ARE INJURED, MALDONADO IS GOOD ENOUGH AND YASIN TOO, NOT ÖNDER, DENIZ SHOULDNT PLAY IN SUCH CRUCIAL MATCHES, LET DENIZ PLAY WHEN WE R 2 OR 3 GOALS AHED, NOT 0-0 IN A CRUCIAL MATCH, GUIZA SHOULDVE BEEN SOLD IN THIS TRANSFER WINDOW.......
ITS NOT LOGICAL THAT A TEAM LIKE IBB WITH NO QUALITY PLAYERS WIN FENERBAHCE
I DONT CARE IF WE HAD THE BALL MOST OF TE GAME, I KNOW THAT THERE IS A TROPHY IN ALI SAMI YEN THAT I WNAT TO TAKE TO THE SUKRU SARACOGLO, NOT TO TRABZON OR SIVAS,.................................
GET RID OF THE DUO, ARAGONES AND GUIZA
AND GIVE JOSICO FOR BETIS INSTEAD OF AURELIO WHO MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE WANTS TO COME BACK TO SAMANDIRA AND TRAIN THERE!!!!
GET NURI SAHIN, WHAT ARE U WAITING FOR???

ASSIGN ME AS FB MANAGER

CONGRATULATIONS FENERBAHCE, NOW U OFFICIALY SUCK BECAUSE OF ASRAGONES AND GUIZA
I CAN UNDERSTAND GS DRAWING WITH KAYSERI, A QUALITY TEAM, I CAN UNDERSTAND BJK DRAWING WITH KONYA, MADE THE BEST TRANSFERS TILL NOW, BUT I CANT UNDERSTAND OUR LOSS TO IBB.

SACK ARAGBES AND SELL GUIZA, I WOULD PREFER THE TROPHY, AND A SPOT IN THE CL ON 100,000 MILLION DOLLARS

NOW, THEY WILL WRITE ON FENERBAHCE.ORG/ENG, "LAST YEAR UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTER-FINALSTS FENERBAHCE LOST TO IBB"
ENOUGH ABOUT LAST SEASON ALREADY!!!!
