Presentation of Trabzonspor

Trabzonspor (Trabzonspor Külübu) was established in 1967 as the merger of İdmanocağı, İdmangücü, Karadenizgücü, and Martıspor. The club joined the Top League in 1975, immediately winning the title in 1976, breaking the hegemony of the "Big Threes" from İstanbul (Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray, and Beşiktaş). The team won another five leagues in 1977, 1979, 1980, 1981, and 1984, and eight Turkish Cups (1977, 1978, 1984, 1992, 1995, 2003, 2004, and 2010). During its Gilded Age, Trabzonspor was mostly (1973-1988, with some breaks) managed by Ahmet Suat Özyazıcı (b. 1936).
The Europen record of Trabzonspor is less convincing, in spite of wins over famous clubs such as FC Liverpool (1-0, 1976) Inter Milan (1-0, 1983), FC Barcelona (1-0, 1990), Olympique Lyonnais (4-1 and 4-3; 1991), and Aston Villa (1-0, 1994).
