Happy New Year to you all, we hope all is well. We’ve got another loaded show for you this week. Kaan Bayazit returns for the third straight week, which means we’re going to torture your ears with the Turkish soccer talk.
The podcast starts off with the ongoing look into the Turkish Women’s 1st Division with the reporting of the week nine results. There are a couple of games that weren’t played and the standings will be reported on for next week. We also have an announcement for coverage of the PTT 1st division similar to what we have for the women’s top flight currently.
Genclerbirligi did it to us again, as they hire a new manager right after we recorded last week’s episode. We talk about Ibrahim Uzulmez getting hired and some news about his previous club Elazigspor.
Galatasaray made some moves during this past week. Ryan Donk arrives while Kevin Grosskreutz heads out. The guys discuss the details of those moves.
Other news this week include the following: two players from Bursaspor not in future plans, Antalyaspor hiring a new coach and signing two players, and a tangent discussion about a very unique futsal tournament going on in Turkey featuring old players from the Istanbul big three.
After discussing how much of a dumpster fire Genclerbirligi was last week, this week we move on to discussion of possibly a bigger dumpster fire in Mersin Idman Yurdu. They’ve already sacked manager Bulent Korkmaz, and his replacement didn’t last too long in the job either. Are they screwed? The discussion here ranges from the players recently released, to Bulent Korkmaz’s qualities as a manager (or lack thereof according to one pundit), to even whether the Super League as a whole is out of their depth.
