Episode 315: Does Turkey Believe In Frosty The Snowman?

December 23, 2016

There were a couple of stumbles in the league.  It also looks like the transfer season is starting early.  Oh and Christmas is around the corner, and considering St. Nick’s house is located in Turkey, we might have some holiday cheer.

Week 15 results for the Turkish Super League are reviewed.  Kasimpasa pulled off an upset against Besiktas.  Galatasaray had to count on Semih Kaya against Osmanlispor in a very cold night in Ankara.  Istanbul Basaksehir continues their run.  Adanaspor won for the first time in what seems like forever.  The week 16 schedule, the last match weekend before the winter break, gets the rundown.

The Turkish Cup gets a brief rundown.  Trabzonspor gets a win via some of their youth players.  It would be overshadowed, however, by the death of Amedspor player Sehmus Ozer.  There seems to be wintry wonderlands in these matches as well.

The podcast wraps up with the news of week.  It looks like transfer season has started early.  Besiktas looks to be acquiring Ryan Babel, as he looks to return to Turkey.  One potential move that been reported is Genclerbirligi’s Irfan Can Kahveci heading to Istanbul Basaksehir.  The pundits discuss the pros and cons of the potential move.
