Episode 316: May The Replay Force Be With Turkey
It’s the end of the year. It’s been a pretty eventful year. It couldn’t be a week in Turkish football though without some sort of controversy.
Week 16 results for the Turkish Super League are reviewed. There were some weird calls from referees this past weekend. Istanbul Basaksehir unexpectedly stumbled, but one of the weird referee calls may have cost them the three points. There was also a very strange call in the Rizespor-Osmanlispor match. The last match held at Huseyin Avni Aker stadium didn’t have the sendoff that Trabzonspor had in mind. Antalyaspor and Genclerbirligi have had some great runs of form over the last few weeks, and the pundits talk about their recent wins and chances for European qualification.
There’s already some moves being made. The pundits go over some moves currently made and also some rumored moves. Galatasaray have made some releases, two of which really didn’t do much of anything, but one who still might have had something to give.
The Turkish Cup gets a brief rundown. The guys look into the recent results in the fourth matchday in the group stages.
The podcast concludes this week with a discussion in regards to the implementation of video replay in the Turkish leagues. The guys seem to agree that it should be implemented, the real question is how to do it.
