    Well this is certainly a unique situation, to be able to ask the person who got fouled in that clip. The replay does look like a barge in the back, but from time to time players may exaggerate the contact to get the pen. I will say it looked pretty clear that you were pushed but be honest, did you sell it a bit??? We'll never tell!

    #8 looked pretty guilty as well as soon as he touched you.

    They're still last on the table but, the good news: only by goal difference.

    Since the Turkish Süper Lig relegates four this season, chances are they're done, though.

    Congrats on the start and the win today. For those of us stuck in our home country without any hope of visiting Turkey for the foreseeable future, can you give us your take on living there for the short time you've been there?

    Ok.
    Post 5-10 specific questions, that may be answered with one-liners, and I'll be straight with you. But right now I'm just focused on Ahmed Yasin's worries. Soooo unfortunate today.

    Was Helen really the most beautiful woman in world?

    Is Turkey a European country, an Asian country, a Middle Eastern country, a Balkan country, a Caucasian country, a neighbor to Africa, Black Sea country, Caspian Sea or all these?

    Gemlik or Manzanilla?

    Kofte or Kebap?

    1. is there any obvious discord between the Muslim society and those who don’t practice that faith?
    2. What is your favorite Turkish dish so far?
    3. Easy to travel around Turkish cities?
    4. What happened to Yasmin?

    1. Not in what I have experienced in Denizli so far. People are welcoming and seem to be very helpful towards non-Turkish citizens.

    2. Baklava and Kebab. Easy

    3. So far, I have only traveled between cities in Turkey with my team, by bus and by plane. Smooth so far. If it wasnt for Covid, I would most likely have visited both Izmir and Antalya during the short time I have been here. Great spots within a 2 hour distance.

    4. His surname is Yasin. Friend and Swedish player previously playing for BK Häcken. Injured in the ninetieth minute in yesterday's 1-0 win, after subbing in in the 65th minute. We don't know the full status of the injury yet, but we are both rather worried.

    Thanks!

    Please let us know if you would recommend Denizli for visiting, any specific sites in Turkey that you have visited, want to visit.

    Good luck to your friend and I hope his injury is less significant than what is concerned.

    Fortunately, I am familiar with more languages than English, and that comes in handy in communication. Many Turkish men do speak more than one language, and are equally as bold to dare to embarass themselves as I tend to be. The best of conversations often have that approach as the only starting point.

    3/8 - Not (for practical definitional reasons not)
    5/8 - Totally or partially
    5/8 - Geographically; "YES",
    6/8 - Culturally debatable in parts of, but none, but one, totally.

    If you get up Izmir way be sure to go to Sirence, a well-preserved Greek town - and see if Nisanyan (the Snail Hotel) is still around. It's owner, Sevan Nisanyan, an ethnic Armenian who refused to stop writing about the genocide had the bad luck to be arrested regularly for code violations (nothing to do with his writing of course) and blasphamy. But if he's no longer in jail he's a very gracious host and the food is (was) very good.

    Style of play

    I am being asked to answer who I resemble as a footballer - related to style of play. And this video is being referenced:
    .

    I know who my heroes are, who I would like to resemble, and what players of the past that I've looked up to, (even idolized). But that does, of course, not equate to me actually being able to resemble them.

    So, can any of you watch this -and suggest who I actually resemble or maybe who resemble me, of players that I am not that much aware of (if at all)? Could be players way older or way younger than me - but someone you could post me a few clips of - and maybe suggest for/to the writer/journalist asking.

    Adrian Rabiot, and a little bit of Steve McManaman.

    Also, I’d say Mix is a Frenkie de Jong type midfielder.

    That’s a pretty loaded highlight video. Mix may be one of the best back-heelers in world football.
