Episode 281: Boo Birds Singing (But Is Anyone Listening?)

April 22, 2016

Still status quo for the league at the top of the standings, and there’s Turkish Cup as well.  Although we’d like to see one team in particular support their players.

Week 29 results of the Turkish Super League get reviewed.  Kayserispor seems to have breathed a sigh of relief in the relegation fight.  Galatasaray still leave a lot to be desired in the league, although they might have a point with one of Samuel Eto’o goals.  Fenerbahce may have won, but their fans booed their own team and the players.  Oh, and Landry N’Guemo of Akhisar Belediyespor scored a near blooper reel goal.  The schedule for week 29 gets the rundown.

In the second segment, the guys start off with the first legs of the Turkish Cup semifinals.  Both of the Istanbul big 3 clubs currently in the semifinals had comfortable wins.  For one host though, he was impressed with the support Konyaspor gave their team.  Of course, there is now the possibility that fifth place in the league standing could book a team with a ticket to Europe.  There have been arrests made as the effects of the 2011 match fixing scandal continue to resurface.  This time around though, it would be the investigator arrested for possibly framing Fenerbahce.  Some bad news from Sivasspor as Cicinho went down with an ACL tear, and there’s some discussion on Ruud Boffin of Eskisehirspor.

The guys wrap up the podcast with an overview of the PTT 1st division.  Adanaspor is close to promotion, so close that they can taste it.  The battle for the second automatic promotion spot looks to be hot and heavy though, as well as the playoff spots.  Also, the schedule for the promotional playoffs has been announced, and the dates of the games are revealed on this week’s episode.
