OK. Imagine an extremely posh person with a short tongue saying "chill out" . 

 

Right, now that's sorted how do we pronounce his surname? 

 

 

Sir-un-ju apparently. 
 

Sorry, I’m sounding like a Cags fan girl here, I’m not although he’s a bloody legend. I watched an interview in Turkish a while ago where he said his name and it stuck with me. I’m also very interested in linguistics etc.

Let's not call him Charlie. It's not too difficult to say Chaalaa which in think some mentioned was the correct pronunciation.

 

It really bugs me when people have to take on an English name as no-one can be bothered to learn their name.

I agree. I think Cags as a nickname is a tad disrespectful though perhaps he doesn't mind. Chaalar is not difficult to say correctly.

I think the players call him Cags don’t they, so maybe he doesn’t. 
 

Anyway I’m sure Chaalar Sirunju would appreciate us trying to say his name properly.

World class - reminds me of Sergio Ramos.

Thats actually a very good comparison for him. Caglar covers depth in standard situations with ease, constantly manipulating his defensive positioning in slight ways to the tune of his surroundings. His ability to do this comes from reaction speeds that make his deliberate movements look more like reflexive actions.

 

Caglars ability to plug holes in chaotic or non-existent defensive transition is enough to solidify him as one of the EPL's best defenders, and he is also an extremely good passer and possesses world class press resistance, which greatly enhances a player’s defensive value given the pressing-focused nature of the modern game. He can fit any system, I wouldnt be suprised if Barcelona or Man City makes a bid for him.

Is he gonna be the first defender to go for more than hundred million???

If he keeps playing like this in the EPL and plays great in the euros in the summer he has a big chance especially considering hes still young

Caglar Soyuncu thread = 47 pages of how the hell do you pronounce his name.

 

OHL thread = 110 pages of how the hell do you figure out Belgian playoffs and playdowns.

 

Foxes Talk.  We grapple with the most vexing questions of our time.

His value according to transermarkt went up from 20m to 40m which is insane for 4/5 months. I wonder how much he will be worth at the end if this year image.png.df2e5b1bb5a47a657b17781c0ec6157c.png

Prime target for Man City...   If Harry M had been injured and wanted his place back - would he get it?   Prob not (sorry of this was covered pages 35-30 or something and I missed it..)

Sounds like a Scousers response after being asked... ‘tea or coffee?’

All you need to do is put his name into Google translate with the accents on, set to translate from English to Turkish, press the audio, that should come out with the correct pronunciation.
