Oh you are right, I forgot they switched to the 4-2-3-1, they won't have to worry about defense at all, if that's what they will be using most of the time. That should make up for any loose ends.
Will Gutierez be featured in games where they use 2 strikers, or can they implement him as a back up attacking midfielder? He's a striker as far as I'm aware of. I guess him and Yilmaz will be competing for spots up front, after Bulut.
What happened to Rigobert Song?? Did he retire?? I heard they didn't bring him back, I'm assuming they wanted younger guys, because he is 34, but not sure how he played last season.
Well, I agree, about Turkey in general and defenders. Germany likewise and other nations try to use tenacious midfielders (Schweinsteigger) who try to win the match ups in midfield, preventing the ball from leaking near the defenders, and to keep it most of the time in play no further past the midfielders.
The only thing I thing that should change for the Turkish NT, not the clubs, is to try to use a lineup that consists of MUCH MUCH smaller defenders, not strictly just guys that are 6-3 - 6-5, unless they are comfortable moving efficiently and fast. They will win when it comes to corners and balls in general that land the from air (as opposed from the ground), but against fast 5'7 strikers the whole defense will unfortunately will collapse
(Cetin, Zan etc.) unless they can communicate well with each other.
