This is NOT Akhisar!
Teams: Galatasaray, Turkey, Eastern European Football
So, they were a couple of times champions of Russia in the last 5 years, precisely in 2008 and 2009. After that they lost their momentum for a bit, but they plan to get back to the top again.
They have a very spirited, humble, but disciplinarian coach Kurban Berdyev. They used to sign expensive players in the past, however the name alone won't win you place in the squad as Carlos Eduardo bought for €20m and plagued with injuries knows, same goes for Nelson Valdez and Obafemi Martins.
They seem to have penchant for Spanish, Latin in general and to lesser degree Turkish players.
They have charismatic and good goalie Rhyzikov, great defenders in central back / left back Bocchetti who's Italian international and only 26 years old, as well as Argentinian international Ansaldi who's a left-back. In addition they have two Spanish central backs who are also decent.
Midfield is their best asset, there an Israeli Natkho seems to be a boss and their top scorer, other notable players are Eremenko bought from Dynamo Kiev for quite a fee, as well as Gokdeniz Karadeniz, a Turkish experienced winger, in attack they have Rondon whom they bought from Malaga, he had a good first season, but now he's only scored 4 goals. I consider their attack to be the weakest overall.
They are a very disciplined team, they play combinational football in the middle and mostly use 1 striker.
I think they lacked a true leader in central midfield after the departure of Christian Noboa and I hope M'Villa will be able to provide that (Eremenko and Natkho are offensive midfielders).
I think if they'll get another striker in summer they'll be a force to be reckoned with in Europe.
