Episode 356: There’s A Derby Coming, Isn’t There?

October 20, 2017

As we get back to league action, there’s some interesting results.  We also have a derby on the horizon.

Week 8 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed.  Genclerbirligi pulled off an upset.  Akhisar Belediyespor went ballistic on Trabzonspor.  Galatasaray is still unbeaten.  The week 9 schedule gets a rundown, which this week features the Galatasaray-Fenerbahce derby.

There’s a review of the TFF first division results from this weekend.  There is some news about two teams getting points deductions.  European action is then discussed.  While Besiktas went three for three in the Champions League, it didn’t quite work out so well for the other clubs who are playing the Europa League.  Istanbal Basaksehir though might have an excuse.

A couple of news tidbits are discussed.  One deals with the potential introduction of VAR into the Turkish league as soon as January.  The other is the sacking of Ersun Yanal by Trabzonspor.  With Trabzonspor’s current woes, the pundits debate the firing and what is with Trabzonspor right now.
