Episode 320: Straight Out Of The Textbook

January 27, 2017

The second half of the season is underway.  Now we’re on the road to the league title.  We’re also on the road to crowning the winner of the Turkish Cup, if that tickles the fancy.

Week 18 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed.  Galatasaray seems to have some complaints about their loss to Karabukspor, but the pundits have a difference of opinion.  The relegation dogfight now gets interesting.  Antalyaspor continues their resurrection since week eight.  Besiktas won comfortably against Alanyaspor, at least on the surface.  One of the pundits however, thinks that there’s more to it than that.  Adanaspor’s current form might not be a fluke after all.  The week 19 schedule gets a rundown.

The Turkish Cup wrapped up its group stages.  Lukas Podolski made it a night to remember for himself against 24 Erzincanspor.  Bursaspor could count on one person to at least support them in their match against Umraniyespor.

News this week concerns moves and coaching changes.  Bursaspor and Gaziantepspor will be looking for new coaches.  The pundits discuss the possible replacements as well as the situations at the respective teams.  Hugo Rodallega is off to Trabzonspor, and will Trabzonspor finally have everything gel?  The podcast wraps up with a discussion of the death of Genclerbirligi chairman Ilhan Cavcav and his legacy.
