The 2007–08 Süper Lig season, (also known as the Turkcell Süper Lig for sponsorship reasons), was the 50th anniversary of top-flight professional football in Turkey. It was won by Galatasaray, who won their 17th championship.

Since Turkey had climbed from fifteenth to fourteenth place in the UEFA association coefficient rankings at the end of the 2006–07 season and Champions League-bound Zenit St. Petersburg won the UEFA Cup 2007-08, the domestic cup winner, Kayserispor, which had qualified for the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup 2008-09, was promoted to the 1st round, filling the unused title holder spot.

The league started on 10 August 2007 with İstanbul Büyükşehir BelediyesporFenerbahçe S.K. match in Atatürk Olympic Stadium.[1]

The three relegated clubs would be replaced by 3 promoted clubs from the Bank Asya 1. Lig. Gençlerbirliği OFTAŞ and İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediyespor earned automatic promotion. Altay S.K., Diyarbakırspor, Kasımpaşa S.K., and Malatyaspor played in the play-off tournament, with Kasımpaşa coming out victorious, becoming the third and last club to be promoted to the Turkcell Super League.

Events[edit]

1st Week[edit]

The league started with a surprise score. Istanbul Büyükşehir Belediyespor managed to defeat the national powerhouse Fenerbahçe with a clear score of 2–0.[2] Another important event of the first week was the record of Hakan Şükür. By scoring two goals, he managed to reach to the record of the most goals scored domestically.[3] The Trabzonspor-Sivasspor match was suspended due to "player and fan trouble", just minutes before the referee would end it. Federation declared a Sivasspor victory of 0–3 afterwards.[4] This caused a harsh opposition from the Trabzonspor side.

7th Week[edit]

The first derby of the season was the main event of this week but the decision of Karl Heinz Feldkamp became the center of the discussion rather than the match between Galatasaray and Beşiktaş because he decided to exclude two important players of his team, Şükür and Lincoln, from the match squad. The reason was their disciplinary problems. This week is also worth mentioning because none of the matches ended with a draw.

10th Week[edit]

Fenerbahçe, after collecting five points in three Champions League matches, faced the newcomer of the league, Kasımpaşa. Fenerbahçe hardly won the game which they were expected to dominate. On the other field of the competition, Galatasaray secured the victory in the last minutes and the surprise leader of the 9th Week, Sivasspor, was defeated by the desperate Konyaspor. One of the key events of the week was the transfer of Ersun Yanal, former national team manager, to Trabzonspor. Ziya Doğan left his seat after the shocking defeat at the hands of Beşiktaş in the 9th week where Trabzonspor lost its early advantage of 2–0 and ended up losing the game 2–3.[5][6]

24th Week[edit]

Beşiktaş hosted Galatasaray on their 319th randez-vous.[7] Both teams had critical absences such as injured Bobo and suspended Lincoln.[8] Beşiktaş won the game with final score of 1–0.[9] Mert Nobre have scored to Galatasaray for the 6th time in his career as he already scored 3 whilst his Fenerbahçe spelling.[10] Nobre could only score once in the first halve of season, then he accelerated his form and earned 6 goals until 24th week. Thereby, Beşiktaş captured the top of table after 137 weeks of the league.[11][12] Almost entire Beşiktaş squad and board including chairman Yıldırım Demirören and coach Ertuğrul Sağlam had achieved the top position of the league for the very first time in their personal careers; squad exceptions were Serdar Özkan, Gökhan Zan, and captain İbrahim Üzülmez.[13]

28th Week[edit]

The most important match up of the weekend was between Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe. Sarı Kanaryalar had already captured the leadership previous week, Beşiktaş was on target to overtake them again as the home side winner on last 6 weeks.[14][15]

Fenerbahçe started the match well with the header of Alex after Colin Kazım-Richards' cross from the right side. Kazım will have been to score against Chelsea on next match in Champions League. Beşiktaş equalized the scoresheet with Serdar Özkan's goal; however, Alex closed the curtain with his second goal as he became the man of the match.[16][17] This was a big impact on Beşiktaş due to the victory of Sivasspor as they even lost the second place which they would lose the chance to join Champions League next season. During the match, Yıldırım Demirören's mother got feel faint, it was diagnosed that she had a sudden hypertension. Demirören had to leave the match in early minutes.[18] Alex was protested by Beşiktaş supporters after manupulated the situations during the corner kicks.[19] More interestingly, referee had added 4 and 8 minutes of stopagge time, sum of 12.

Galatasaray was fined by TFF and played against Gaziantepspor with no audience. This was the 6th match without the supporters this season due to be disciplined; nevertheless Cimbom was able to win 5 times that far.[20] They had a 0–0 draw with Gaziantep.

29th week[edit]

Turkish Professional Discipline Board fined Beşiktaş for two matches, one to play in a neutral stadium and one with no audience due to manifestations consisting oaths on TFF and the referees in the match against Fenerbahçe previous weekend.[21][22]

The most unexpected news was the resignation of Karl-Heinz Feldkamp from Galatasaray. Club officials declared that the reason was the opinion gap between Feldkamp and club board.[23] On the later emerging news on the papers, it was claimed that the very last reason was Feldkamp's tactical changes on the team and selection before the match against Gençlerbirliği which did not consist Hakan Şükür, Hasan Şaş and Okan Buruk.[24][25]

Sivasspor hosted Beşiktaş as Fenerbahçe did for Kayserispor in the very crucial encounters of the weekend. Galatasaray was the guest of Gençlerbirliği. All three matches finished with narrow scores, therefore Fenerbahçe kept going as the leader. Lincoln was the scorer for Cimbom.[26]

İstanbul B.Ş.B. manager Abdullah Avcı was linked with Galatasaray after his successful performance throughout the season.[27]

Former Beşiktaş player Pascal Nouma was in Turkey to follow the Beşiktaş' match as he claimed that his former team to reach the title at the end of the season.[28]

31st Week[edit]

Kasımpaşa were relegated to Bank Asya 1. Lig, after their away match loss against Bursaspor with a 1–0 score.

Galatasaray defeated Sivasspor 5–3 at an away match and took a big step to the title.[29] Fenerbahçe defeated Gençlerbirliği 3–2 at home and guaranteed UEFA Champions League qualification.[30]

34th Week[edit]

Galatasaray won their 17th championship in its history by defeating Gençlerbirliği Oftaş 2–0. Fenerbahçe finished 2nd losing 2–0 to Trabzonspor. Beşiktaş finished 3rd and captured a UEFA Cup spot by winning 5–1 against relegated Vestel Manisaspor. Sivasspor won 2–0 against Gençlerbirliği, but could only qualify for UEFA Intertoto Cup after finishing 4th, behind Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş, because of a poor head to head record against those two teams.[31]
