    The Big Thing: Chaos and drama in Turkish soccer

    The Big Thing: Chaos and drama in Turkish soccer

    Turkish soccer, which isn't exactly renowned for its serenity, hit headlines this week when Fenerbahce fielded an U19 team in the Turkish Super Cup against fierce rivals Galatasaray... before withdrawing the team from the field entirely.
    This comes after Fener threatened to leave the Süper Lig, in a season that has been characterized by violence and controversial incidents.
    On this week's Big Thing, the TSS crew survey the world of Turkish soccer, using the insight of former Istanbul resident Taylor Rockwell to gain some historical perspective on the current troubles.

    Champions League review: goals galore! Bayern and City score their way to draws on the road, Barcelona's mature performance, and Atletico take advantage of Dortmund's errors

    Graham and Taylor somehow end up spending over an hour discussing this week's Champions League results! Uneven performances led to a spectacle of a match between Real Madrid and Manchester City, controversial non-calls in Arsenal and Bayern, Dortmund once again letting themselves down in the knockout round (this time against Atletico), and Barcelona's battling performance against a strong and adaptable PSG side.

    The Big Thing: taking a longer look at the impending managerial carousel

    The Big Thing: taking a longer look at the impending managerial carousel

    What a strange offseason it's about to be! Liverpool, Bayern Munich, and theoretically Barcelona are all expected to be without managers at the end of the season, and multiple other clubs could quickly find themselves in similar situations. So, who is leaving, who might be arriving, and who might be staying after saying they were leaving? Graham, Joe and Taylor have thoughts!
