Episode 284: Run-Ins Are Completely Legal

May 13, 2016

It seems we might have a champion coming up this weekend.  At least we’ll know who also gets automatically promoted from the second tier though.

Week 32 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed.  (Keep in mind that Konyaspor-Kasimpasa and Istanbul Basaksehir-Fenerbahce took place this past Monday, Ata didn’t mention it on the episode for some reason)  It seems that Besiktas are champions in waiting, although the goal scored this past week in the derby might be considered a bit sketch.  Of course, that is taking into mind the rule concerning the situation in question.  There was also a wild comeback in Ankara, a lifeline handed to Sivasspor (for now), and Trabzonspor going ballistic against Rizespor.  The schedule for weeks 33 & 34 are given a rundown.

Quick news bites are on tap this week.  The main talking point this week is Fernando Muslera’s availability for the Turkish Cup final later this month.  This is considering that the Copa America is scheduled to start in a few weeks.

The PTT 1st division overview wraps up this week’s episode, as they go into the final week of the regular season.  The race for the second automatic promotion spot goes down to the final day, as well as the relegation dogfight.  One particular decision from Adana Demirspor in terms of resting some players raised the ire of some at 1461 Trabzon.  The guys discuss Vural’s decision making.
