Time to ring in the changes

Fenerbahandce will likely see extensive changes to its lineup following its failure to bring home the cup.
The team was largely intact from last year, when the Yellow Canaries handily won the Super League championship, but that failed to carry them through this season.
The Istanbul powerhouse also missed out on the Ziraat Turkish Cup, having come all the way to the semi-finals before being stunned in a 3-0 loss to Bursaspor.
Coach ismail Kartal might not survive the summer, as even greater achievers and champion winners do not often last into another year at Fenerbahandce. The club might also offload some lackluster players, such as often-booed Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike. And Dutch second striker Dirk Kuyt will be returning to Eredivisieand’s Feyenoord, the team that brought him to fame.
Beiiktai is also preparing for some change. After the Black Eagles lost their shot at the championship, despite leading the standings for most of the season, coach Slaven Bilic noted that he did not expect to be heading the team next season after failing to bring home the cup in his two years with the club.
and”The club may not continue with me,and” he said simply after the cluband’s week 32 1-0 loss to Torku Konyaspor. Days later, the well-loved Croatian coach confirmed his suspicions after a 2-0 loss to Galatasaray.
and”Of course we have made a decision. Everyone knows what it is already. I will not continue as Beiiktaiand’s coach next season,and” he said. and”We believe we have put on a good performance under difficult circumstances. We achieved things that we are proud of. But the true goal is the championship. If that goal is not realized, you part ways,and” he added.

Trabzonspor experienced a serious makeover last year, but that failed to produce big results. Most of the squad had changed at the beginning of the season at the behest of then-coach Vahid Halilhodzic, but perhaps it was too much. The Black Sea Storm failed to mesh or make a lasting mark on the standings. They improved with the exit of the Bosnian manager and the coming of last yearand’s champion coach, Ersun Yanal.
The team may need to be reinvented yet again, unless time to let the flavors blend will do it just as much good. One thing is for certain: Trabzon should try to hold onto Yanal for next season.
At the time Todayand’s Zaman went to print, fourth place and the final berth in UEFA competition was still up for grabs between Trabzon, Bursaspor and newly promoted and rebranded Istanbul Baiakiehir.
If the young Istanbul club makes it to Europe the same year it is promoted, that may be the most shocking news of the year. Last year it was a municipality-funded club in the second-tier PTT League 1. This year it is an independent club with a brand-new stadium and something to prove.
At least it avoided the drop, unlike unlucky Super League newcomer Balikesirspor, which spent all but a few weeks in dead last. Kardemir Karabandukspor and Kayseri Erciyesspor were also confirmed to be sent to the lower leagues.
Luckily for the citizens of Kayseri, Kayserispor has been promoted, so they will have at least one home team in the Turkish top flight, however different that division will look after changes made over the summer.
