TURKISH CUP W: Fenerbahçe and Eczacıbaşı prevail in marathon semis, Vargas pours in 38 for “Yellow Angels”

Amazing game. Vargas despite best score still seem like unbrushed diamond, which can be even better. I hope coach Terzic could see that. Eda Erdem is also true capitan, not just in ranks but she make joy in team. Antonijevic could also save some net balls, like Ognjenovic normally does. Looking forward to the Finale. Ezaci is very 'beatable'. Reply

Fener should not let Bricio go. It is a massve mistake of Terzic.
If he really wants Mihajlovic, let club buy her too. Reply

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

I read she said earlier that she is leaving to go back to the Italian league. Was she really waived? She is a great player. She is one of the reason why Fenerbahe is doing so well this season along with Vargas. Reply
