This episode was recorded on Thanksgiving Day in the United States, so please, no Turkey jokes. Nadeem Raja returns this week to provide his punditry.
Week 12 results of the Turkish Super League are reviewed. Both Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado had a good day in their matches. Istanbul Basaksehir really raised a few eyebrows with their win this weekend. We may have already teams destined for the long relegation dogfight. Trabzonspor barely got by Osmanlispor. The week 13 schedule gets a rundown.
European action is reviewed. Besiktas have moved on to the Champions League knockout rounds, and won their group with one game to spare in the process. Istanbul Basaksehir finally won in Europe. Konyaspor had the chance to win, but one of their own players would cost them three points. The debate here though is the priorities of the clubs in question.
News this week deals with two separate points. Genclerbirligi decided to head back to their recent past to replace fired coach Mesut Bakkal. Trabzonspor looks to be in a bit of deep water over a transfer.
