    Turkish Super League 2011/2012

    There it goes. I'm aware that almost no one follows Turkish League, but a gain of interest of even one person would be enough for me, and thus i've decided to post a preview of new Turkish Super League season for you, with the aim of making it interest you. I will also post stuff about Turkish Cup here as well.


    2010/2011 Final Standings
    Rank-Team Name-W/D/L-Points

    1. FENERBAHÇE 26-4-4 ----------- 82 CL Group Phase
    2. TRABZONSPOR 25-7-2 --------- 82 CL Play-Offs
    3. BURSASPOR 17-10-7 ---------- 61 EL 4th Qual. Round
    4. GAZİANTEPSPOR 17-8-9 ------- 59 EL 2nd Qual. Round
    5. BEŞİKTAŞ 15-9-10 ------------ 54 EL Play-Offs (Turkish Cup Winner)
    6. KAYSERİSPOR 14-9-11 -------- 51
    7. ESKİŞEHİRSPOR 12-11-11 ----- 47
    8. GALATASARAY 14-4-16 ------- 46
    9. KARABÜKSPOR 12-8-14 -------- 44
    10. MANİSASPOR 13-4-17 -------- 43
    11. ANTALYASPOR 10-12-12 ------ 42
    12. BÜYÜKŞEHİR BLD.SPOR 12-6-16 42
    13. ANKARAGÜCÜ 10-11-13 ------- 41
    14. GENÇLERBİRLİĞİ 10-10-14 ----- 40
    15. SİVASSPOR 8-11-15 ---------- 35
    16. BUCASPOR 6-8-20 ------------ 26 Relegated
    17. KONYASPOR 4-12-18 --------- 24 Relegated
    18. KASIMPAŞA 5-8-21 ----------- 23 Relegated

    New teams this season:
    Mersin Idman Yurdu
    Samsunspor
    Orduspor


    The build of Turkish Super League is pretty simple, just like most of other leagues teams in last 3 places relegated as 3 teams from Bank Asya 1st Division joins Super League. (Top 2 in 1st division and teams number 3-6 plays play-off to join Super League.)
    If 2 teams finishes the league with same points (like this season), the games that has been played between those teams will determine their positions.

    Trabzonspor 3-2 Fenerbahce
    Fenerbahce 2-0 Trabzonspor

    As the results were like this, Fenerbahce claimed the Turkish Super League title 18th time in their history.


    I would like to share my short views about teams for the upcoming season. These are my personal thoughts. Let's see how my expectations reflect the reality in the end of season.


    Besiktas: (Est. position: 1)

    Besiktas was being shown as favorites to win the title last year as they have build one of the strongest squads in their history. However there was something they didn't took into account, squad depth. After a great start in League and Europe, at the start of October their most important player Quaresma injured for 2 months and on the same week plenty of regular first team players injured as well (such as Guti, Sivok, Bobo, Nihat and so on.) And at this bad times Besiktas' rotation players failed to deliver good results, in fact Besiktas couldn't win 7 games in a row which pushed them back and weakened their title chances. (Just like Inter to be honest.) And the addition of Simao, Almeida and Fernandes in Winter Transfer Period was simply not enough.

    However, in Summer transfer window Besiktas kept their main squad and bought their 2 loaned players, Fernandes and Ersan Adem Gülüm. And they went for quality players for their rotation in every position such as Bebe, Sidnei, Egemen, Burak Kaplan and Mustafa Pektemek. (You can see them in transfer section below) So with this move Besiktas is -again- being shown as favorites of the title this year.


    Fenerbahce: (Est. position: 2)

    After a nightmare season start they pretty much surprised everyone and won the title as their 33 years old captain Alex de Souza carried the team very well as he scored 28 goals. They are keeping their main squad as well as some rotation additions just like Besiktas. I can't really say their chances of winning the title this year is much lower than Besiktas if Alex keeps his current form.


    Galatasaray: (Est. position: 3)

    Galatasaray had the worst season in their 106 years old history as they lost 16 games. Now they will start the new season with whole fresh board, coach and players. Their new president Ünal Aysal looks like he will pay whatever the price to bring success to this team, and it's not hard to see as it's known that Galatasaray is interested in players such as Forlan, Reyes, Cambiasso and Drogba. Galatasaray also brought their old beloved coach Fatih Terim back to duty. As you know Fatih Terim won the UEFA Cup with Galatasaray in 2000 and brought the biggest football success of Turkish history, fans are looking forward to have that old spirit back. As they will not compete in Europe next season, their focus on league will be high, however i don't think they can be shown among the favorites of the league this season, not just yet.


    Trabzonspor lost a lot of blood from last year as most of their first squad players left the team. Their brain Selcuk Inan (MC) signed Galatasaray, Egemen Kokrmaz (DC) signed Besiktas and their Striker Umut Bulut has already left among with plenty others. They will be still competetive as they hold their well-experienced coach Senol Günes and their key player Burak Yilmaz, but i can't see them reaching the success of last year again under this circumstances.
    Estimated position: 5

    Bursaspor surprised everyone with their historical title win in 2010, but then the downfall started. They are simply going worse and worse, losing their top players, signing questionable replacements and they are also having trouble outside of the pitch as their president Ibrahim Yazici is under arrest because of swindling.
    Estimated position: 6 or below.

    Gaziantepspor is the team capable of being new "Bursaspor of 2010" this year. They have a great board doing right things, great manager and great players which they don't even negotiate to sell. I expect them to show a great performance this year and become one of Turkey's competetive teams.
    Estimated position: 4.

    Eskisehirspor
    , Kayserispor and Istanbul Büyüksehir Bld. are among the teams that capable of pushing for Europa League spot this season.



    Teams that get 5 League Titlese has the privilege of carrying a "star" above their team crests. Currently Fenerbahce and Galatasaray carries 3 stars whle Besiktas does 2 and Trabzonspor 1.

    Here you can check the League Title numbers and years:



    Fenerbahce is most successful team in the league while Galatasaray has the most cups. And Besiktas is the only team to win the league without losing a game. (in 91/92 season)

    Turkish Cup History:

    Here you can see how many times teams won the Turkish Cup:

    Galatasaray - 14 (1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1973, 1976, 1982, 1985, 1991, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2005)
    Besiktas - 9 (1975, 1989, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011)
    Trabzonspor - 8 (1977, 1978, 1984, 1992, 1995, 2003, 2004, 2010)
    Fenerbahce - 4 (1968, 1974, 1979, 1983)

    Fenerbahce fans are being mocked because of their Turkish Cup failure, mostly by Besiktas fans. They couldn't win the Cup for 29 years, they reached the final 4 times in last 6 years but lost all, 2 of them were against Besiktas.

    I will post Summer Transfer Window updates as soon as possible.

    Gr8 post Stunbel, no doubt that you will keep us updated with the Besiktas transfers. You think they will be able to win this year?

    Fenerbahce has just as much chance as we do in my opinion, it will be exciting to watch this 2 teams compete and Galatasaray is also among the title candidates which shouldn't be ignored. But as i said, i expect Besiktas to win the title this year.

    And thanks for appreciation guys, coloring part was pretty frustrating.

    Do you think Besiktas would like muntari? He might be great in the Turkish super league, maybe Besiktas should take advantage of the players we want to offload

    Absolutely no chance. We are fully loaded with offensive midfielders and wingers. And you know, he can't really push for Simao's or Quaresma's spot, the gap is huge.

    We need a right back at the moment, and we need it badly... We can also use a striker but can do without it as well and there is no chance that we will sign another midfielder.

    Chelsea's Bosingwa. As i said we are in need of a right back badly and we are officially interested in Bosingwa, waiting for Villas-Boas' decision.

    And here comes to BIG but (imo) EXPECTED SHOCK!

    40 person are taken into custody because of rigging/cheating in Turkish Super League this season and Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim is one of them as well as plenty of Fenerbahce board members and couple of football players. I hope their end becomes like Milan and Juve, fuck all those cheaters. I will update you when more news arrives.

    There are news coming about Fenerbahce, Sivasspor and Eskisehirspor being relegated and Fenerbahce's last championship title being cancelled. But i highly doubt that the justice will be prevailed... It's Turkey, not Italy unfortunately. It will just fade away...
