We currently have Dixon/Biberovic (only one counts as Turkish afaik), Melih, Tırpancı, Arna, Candan, Düverioğlu.

    Most teams are in situations like this. When you take into account number of Turkish players that have a guaranteed spot in the first league, you are bound to get some mediocre players. Still I would like more teams gambling for youth. At least there is a chance they won't suck.
    yes, that's the gist of it. the foreign player quota creates the guaranteed spots, and consequently, this "filler player" market. Teams know they won't use them, hence no expectations/no pressure on players. The players know they won't be playing but paid, hence no motivation. A young player at least could have bigger ambitions.

    in Fener's case, as far as I know, there is a chance Biberovic will be counted as Turkish, not naturalized. Then all of Dixon, Duverioglu, and Biberovic can be together in roster.

    Sorry but this Tirpanci kid is big garbage. Ive been following these kids for years now and he is the worst among all prospects of those which could show up.

    The thing with Biberovic is even sadder. This kid was with 15 one of the top three talents of Europe and his father forced him to continue in Turkey. He hasnt played for 3 years now and if he sits on the bench this season you can really forget about that kid.

    The only talented guy who could really have a nice european career from fener youth except Biberovic is David Sarper Mutaf. I hope he can learn the pick and roll game of Sloukas. He has everything to be a very good combo guard.

    Eh, I wouldn't go as far but I didn't watch him other than A team and some U team games. What I don't like about him is his lack of agility and timidness. He needs to solve both of these, which is really hard. Other than that his court vision and shooting is decent. Biberovic on the other hand oozes potential but he needs to play more than last year i.e. more than occasional minutes in EL and BSL. I didn't watch David Sarper Mutaf.

    Kenan Sipahi joins Real Betis to revive his career. I expected him to sign with another mid-range Turkish team and if truth be known I am quite surprised with this move. He wasted his one season in Beşiktaş where the club withheld the payments that caused disturbance within the team and directly affected the performances of players on court.

    Spanish league has a good atmosphere to make a clean break. He will probably get a primary role in Betis. I hope he picks up his steam and be much better player at the end of the season. We will see if he finally unleashes his potential. Still a believer in him.
    Sports is not only considered as a superiority of physical capability. Perception, intelligence and morality assist it as well. The strong with less intelligence and comprehension can not cope with the less strong but with sufficient intelligence and comprehension. I like the sportsman who is intelligent, agile as well as morally upright.

    well, chances are like 5% now, the entire Afyon management resigned.

    - edit; new management came, and they're on!

    Kenan Sipahi and Albert Oliver next to AJ Slaughter. What an odd group of guards.
