Episode 317: New Year, New Transfers

January 6, 2017

It’s a new year.  But just because there’s no football to be played doesn’t mean there isn’t football related issues to be discussed.

An article by Daily Sabah sports columnist Arda Alan Isik discussing the value of the Turkish Cup is discussed.  Isik argues that the Cup should be used as a youth cup competition.  The guys provide debate on this idea.

The recent moves are discussed.  Galatasaray decided to get rid of some dead weight.  Some Ukrainian players have decided to head to the Turkish league.  Besiktas have acquired a defender from the Croatian league, but is the price right?  Genclerbirligi have gotten a new central defender, which could signal what’s in store for Ahmet Calik.  Trabzonspor have gotten a couple of new fullbacks, but Omer Ali Sahiner hasn’t joined them officially.  The last point of debate this week deals with the transfer situation surround Mehmet Ekici and a potential move out of Trabzonspor.
