This week, Jeremy is back with Ata to talk all things Turkish football. We’ve got some variety this week.
Week 9 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed. There was a thriller in Izmir. Nothing was settled in the Istanbul derby (well, either of them if you want to be really technical about it). Trabzonspor’s woes continue, as well as the woes of Karabukspor. The week 10 schedule gets a rundown.
While Nadeem isn’t here, the TFF first division is reviewed this week. It’s still pretty wild and wooly in the second tier. There’s even an update on some clubs that used to be recently in the Super League. Some Turkish Cup results are highlighted as the fourth round was played this week. There was some controversy coming out of the Trabzonspor match concerning Hugo Rodallega.
News this week concerns two things. One thing is Konyaspor firing manager Mustafa Resit Akcay. The other piece of news concerns testing video assistant replay. With VAR reportedly set to be implemented later this season, VAR is going through a test run in three matches this weekend.
