Episode 299: Masticating is the Word of the Week

September 4, 2016

Apologies for this being late, but we figured there was no rush since there’s only one match that really matters this weekend anyway.  It’s a pretty lengthy one though.

Week 2 results of the Turkish Super League get reviewed.  One of the major highlights was the direct red card of Fenerbahce’s Simon Kjaer, and the guys talk about that.  The other results get the rundown, although we do have to say it is early days.

The Europa League draw was held and the three Turkish clubs there found out who they will play in the group stages.  The pundits debate the chances of said teams to advance.  Also, Konak Belediyesi has their UEFA Women’s Champions League adventure come to an end.

With the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign set to begin, the pundits take a look at the call-ups.  One blatant omission sticks out like a sore thumb.  Also, the guys get into an impromptu debate about the playing of national anthems before sporting events.  This would have to do with the backlash Emre Mor received from social media for chewing gum during the playing of the Turkish national anthem, before the Russia friendly. 

The summer window for transfers is now shut.  The pundits discuss some of the moves that interested them.  Also, Akhisar Belediyespor provided a curveball right before the recording session.  The guys also discuss a certain loophole in UEFA’s Financial Fair Play policy that perhaps Turkish clubs could’ve taken an advantage of.
