Turkey and Turnip.

Turkey are through to the world cup semi final, a brave substitution by Senol Gunes got them the golden goal that assured their place in next Wednesday's semi final against Brazil. Just after the substitution, Graham Taylor who was co-commentating on the game, again justified his failed substitution of Gary Lineaker against Sweden in 1992. It just illustrates so well that these decisions can make or break a manager. Ten years later he is still appologising for a decision that cost England dearly, and cost Lineaker a place in the record books. In ten years time Senol Gunes may well be reliving the time when his team exceeded all expectations. Personally I think Brazil will win the competition, but I would like to see South Korea go all the way.
