Former Arsenal and current Galatasary right back Emmanuel Eboue has taken to Turkey like a late night doner kabob to my stomach. A bit rough at times but it all works out in the end. He’s settled into the squad which just won the Turkish Super Cup and Super Lig. Apparently everything is super in Turkey except Allen Iverson.
Eboue hasn’t only found his form on the pitch. He’s become a master of the post-game interview. Enjoy him discussing his celebration plans after clinching the league.
The tension between singer Harun Tekin and Harun Tekin the goalkeeper has to be intense. It’s probably something along the lines of the beef between Initech’s Michael Bolton and the milquetoast crooner Michael Bolton who, with his inoffensive covers of soul hits, brings suburban moms to their knees without the negro aggression. The hostility may go in one direction because the more famous one doesn’t know the other but that doesn’t make it less valid. Why take out your frustration on a fax machine when you can smash a living, breathing pitch invader? Allow Buraspor’s Tekin to show us the way.
Note: Why must assclowns always add terrible music to video clips? I wish Jack Dalton was still alive to mete out justice on them and their ilk. Now get off my lawn.
Commentators love to wax idiotically about American team rivalries as being among some of the most heated in the world. Assclowns like Woody Paige or Jay Mariotti always mention Red Sox-Yankees, Duke-Carolina, Ohio State-Michigan, etc. None of the matchups come close to generating the hate of Celtic-Rangers, Real Madrid-Barcelona or Galatasary-Fenerbahce.
The following is footage from Galatasary-Fenerbahce. You may not know of these two Turkish teams but their supporters are rowdy and dangerous enough to make English fans think twice about traveling to Turkey.
Now Fenerbahe knows how the Armenians felt back in the day. What? Too soon?
Hat tip to the player that decided to take the corner after his teammate bailed. At least he didn’t have a pig’s head thrown at him like Luis Figo. Then again it could have been a “Fuck that, send the black guy to take the kick” situation.
Fans aren’t the only ones who take Turkish soccer losses hard. Mascots do as well. However they don’t just get mad, they get even. Manager Mustafa Denizli took one the hard way when the mascot turned himself into a human torpedo after a Turkish loss.
We’re going to assume that he kept the cigarette in his mouth when he executed the flying head butt. Far be it for us to suggest fans or mascots resort to violence but if they do, Tom Cable, Eric Mangini and Manny Acta should keep their heads on a swivel. There’s nothing like getting a flying headbutt from a morbidly obese man wearing a dog mask.
