Thread Name: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
Subject: RE: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
A bit lucky for England, in that the referee - probably the world's best - was very fair and his fine handling of the game probably prevented them from losing their heads. I always felt that England were more at risk from their own temperaments than from the rather overrated ability of the Turkish football team. Had Turkey have won, the car horns would have been blaring away all night here. I got back late from a gig, so it was a relief that they didn't!
