I would totally agree, When I worked in Istanbul I saw Besiktas v Liverpool and Fener v Arsenal in the Champions league, fabulous atmosphere. On both occasions one of our party got their pocket picked though.,

Re: Football going forward

Love going to Istanbul and watching the footy and have had no negative experiences.

Tried to go to a Fenerbahce game last year but couldn't get a ticket, but have been on their Stadium Tour.

Besiktas is my Turkish team and we absolutely love staying in the Besiktas district of Istanbul

Fener probably fixed it anyway, they don't have a good track record.

I am very passionate about football at all levels but do despair at the greed at the top level of sport i.e. Premier League, FIFA. UEFA etc
Typical of big business I am afraid. Football lost something when the emphasis changed from being a sport to being a business.

Re: Football going forward

We managed to get a ticket for a Galatasaray v Besiktas game a couple of years ago and it was the best atmosphere, apart from the Everton v Bayern Munich game in 1985, I've ever experienced and I have been to a lot of games over the last 50 years.

I wasn't brave or hard enough to share my Besiktas allegiances though as I was amongst the fanatical Galatasaray fans

That's on my bucket list but doubt I'd be ever able to get a ticket.

I was very close in the early 80s as I spent the New Year in Glasgow and had a ticket for the game at Celtic Park on New Years Day but it was postponed because of the snow!!

Re: Football going forward

Cannot blame football clubs for societies ills

Those who are bigoted morons at the match are exactly the same outside of it
