The league is back in action. So it seems we’re going to get back into our groove as it should be a furious finish.
Week 27 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed. Konyaspor continues their run in 2016, although really it wasn’t easy. The two leaders lost points, but we found out which club is Besiktas’ boogeyman team. Galatasaray went down in Eskisehir, and Kayserispor still can’t score for some reason. The guys run down the schedule for week 28. This week featured a major clash between Konyaspor and Fenerbahce. Plus, the derby will be made up.
The news discussion this week centers on a few bits of news outside of Istanbul for the most part. There are a few schedule changes that happened after we recorded last week’s episode concerning Fenerbahce and Galatasaray before and after they make up the derby. After losing to Konyaspor the previous week, it was reported that Genclerbirligi had sacked manager Ibrahim Uzulmez. Everyone learned eventually it wasn’t the case. The guys discuss the situation there. Also, Emre Gural has left Eskisehirspor due to his wages not being paid. There’s some “he said, she said” action concerning that situation as both player and club have differing stories as to the rectification of that situation. The guys debate that situation.
The guys wrap up the podcast with an overview of the PTT 1st division. Adanaspor looks to be prime shape for promotion. The playoff spots (or at least the race for sixth) looks to be hotly contested. Also, the Turkish women’s national team will take to the field this weekend for Euro 2017 qualifying. Their opponent is Germany, and we hope they don’t get beaten up too badly.
