    I wanna see these kits in person but with that sponsor makes any kit look great IMO.

    I personally hate it. The number 9 is one of those numbers that should always be available.

    It would have been decently funny if they had not said that today there would be a big announcement.

    The only problem with that, sad to say, is that Turkey is in an extremely repressive mode, and human rights are being destroyed. Thousands of civil servants, perceived to be not favourable to the governing party (Erdogan), have been summararily fired. School teachers dumped. And all opposition is repressed violently. There was a supposed coup attempt a few years ago, real or not, and that is the excuse to purge tens of thousands.
    The current leader of the league in Turkey, Istanbul Basaksehir, is the regime's team, they have virtually no fan base, but are beating out the big three in the capital. The struggles of teams with a more "liberal" reputation, in terms of more relaxed Islamic ideals and social mores, Besiktas included, could be arguably related to them being out of favour politically. 
    A former design student of mine who is a skater and has a street wear line, was in Ismir for almost a year looking to produce his textile there. Because he did skating with socially deprived kids he caught the attention of the authorities, and was offered a job in Ankara, with the Ministry of Culture, to run skate programs. But he says in Ismir, he had friends skating, students, workers, and he'd find people would just disappear, because just being skaters they were perceived as dissidents. He did not take that job.
    Let's not even mention the disgusting treatment of ethnic minorities, Kurds, Alevis, others. 
    So to conclude: in principle more interesting than Orlando, but lots of caveats there.

    I may be in the minority here, but I'd choose living in Istanbul 100 times out of 100 over Orlando. One is a historic, cultural mecca of a city and the other is a soulless shithole of a theme park.

    I will repeat what I said in the other thread, the CSA should come forward and explain their reasoning, it’s as simple as that, at that point a more informed reaction can be presented by all concerned parties!

    I would think if he's going to transfer anywhere else in Europe, from a cultural perspective, England would be the best choice. He speaks the language and he has experience driving on the left side of the road. Unfortunately getting a work permit in the UK can be complicated.
