The Turkish national team seems to be in somewhat good shape. For most people though, they’ll be relieved to see the Super League back this coming weekend.
The matches involving the Turkish national team are reviewed. Turkey is still alive for World Cup 2018 qualifying. Well, at least they’re within striking distance of a playoff spot. The review against Finland goes more into some of the players that played in it more than the game itself. As for the Moldova friendly, the review of the match goes into who played in the game, as there were a lot of relatively new faces in international play. Also, the guys go into a brief Deniz Turuc discussion as to whether he should have been capped in the Finland game (thereby making him cap-tied to Turkey).
News this week concerns more of the political influences within Turkish football. While we didn’t get to discussion about a potential amending of the foreigner cap last week, it does get discussed this week. Also, Galatasaray raised the ire of the government as two legendary players had their clubs memberships retained. However, government pressure caused Galatasaray to reconsider that position due to alleged affiliations of said legends. The pundits discuss that. Also, the average attendance of the Turkish Super League in comparison with the major European leagues gets discussed.
The episode concludes with a rundown of the week 26 schedule of the Turkish Super League.
