The Turks are very nice people - until they get within a hundred yards of a football stadium.

The Turkish player had no right to "taunt" Beckham, this could have caused a riot. Beckham did very well to keep his cool. This sort of "taunting", some of it physical, was integral to the trouble at the recent Man U. /Arsenal match.

The only result that pleased me, from a "Home Countries" (quotation marks for Ard Mhacha's benefit(!) perspective, was the Scottish one!

I loved the comment by a reporter on the TV news who said that the crowd atbthe match was "Very intimidating, but not at all hostile", which I felt showed a nice ability to distinguish between things that are often confused with each other.

The Turks seem to save their aggression for football matches when, this otherwise friendly nation, turns hooligan.
As it turned out, the match was well managed by the referee who prevented events on the pitch from getting too heated. A good result for England, even if it wasn't pretty, and Turkey can return to welcoming its visitors.

Well it would have been very hard for tye poor man to keep a straight face after seeing Beckham fall flat on his back and boot the penalty way up over the bar.

England through with a deserved draw, a bit of trouble between Beckham and Alpay, scuffles in the tunnel when the teams were going off at half time.
Alpay taunting Beckham after he missed a penalty, very unsporting by the Turkish player. Ard Mhacha.

I hear that England 'fans' are already being rounded up by the Turkish police ahead of tonight's match in Istanbul. Seems like a sensible precaution and I can't see why any true fans would travel out there given the events of two years ago when 2 Leeds fans were stabbed to death. The Turks have this unfortunate reputation in the UK press following those tragic events but my wife and I were in Istanbul in April this year and found the Turks to be really friendly - got on really well with a restaurant owner who insisted in driving us around the city. Anyway, although friendly the Turks are fiercely patriotic and do not take kindly to English yobboes insulting their flag and their founder Kemal Ataturk, which was was happened when Leeds were last in town. No doubt there would be more of the same tonight if any England fans manage to get to the match...the footie is almost incidental but as Owen and Ferdinand are not playing the Turks must be in with a good chance. The stadium will be a seething cauldron of chanting Turkish supporters with plenty of 'Welcome to Hell' banners and flares going off..let's hope for a good clean match.....
