Excess detail on the kits in the infobox[edit]

Template:Football kit states "the template is for showing basic team colours. It is not supposed to be an accurate drawing of the kit." So, I have removed the version using the image here, etc. The adidas logo on these clutters up the image, and in addition may be a copyright infringement. Dancarney (talk) 11:46, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Please someone who has access, change the colours of 2nd kit (used between 1906-1908) from Yellow-Blue to Yellow-Black. As it says abowe of kit section Galatasaray wore yellow and black in that period.not blue.Thanks. --WikiBronze (talk) 17:58, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Serious clean-up[edit]

As above really. Any takers? It's Malpass 93! (drop me a ---) 18:20, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Galatasaray S.K.[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Galatasaray S.K. (football team)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

"Important figures in the club's history"[edit]

This section was tagged as containing original research in July 2009. Nothing had been done to address this, so yesterday I removed the section. An editor undid this edit without making any justification in the edit summary, and then removed the tag. This section remains completely unreferenced, and in its current state does not belong in the article. I believe that it should be removed, unless it can be shown otherwise, through using third-party reliable sources. Ilikeeatingwaffles (talk) 08:46, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

A question...[edit]

I'm trying to create an article about a Greek player who was born in Turkey and played,or at least he was part of Galatasaray's roster in 1970/71.His name was Avram Kalfin(Αβραάμ Καλφίν);Can anyone tell me if he played any league match with Galatasaray's colours? Pavlos1988 (talk) 14:18, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

The name of the page[edit]

Galatasaray SK (football team) instead of the name if the name of Galatasaray FC Would not it be more elegant? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.242.237.223 (talk) 19:05, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Do you relaize that the Club's name is Galatasaray SC, and it doesn't change accoridng to which branch of sports you are talking about. Galatasaray has dozens of teams/individual sportspeople in many sports. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.215.229.30 (talk) 18:57, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

football team[edit]

Football team as we do not need another page let alone an amateur soccer team Galatasaray SK on the link to the branches already given as a table —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.71.162 (talk) 12:59, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

wut? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.215.229.30 (talk) 19:01, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

football team[edit]

Are you a soccer team closes the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leonade16 (talkcontribs) 11:43, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

That is the clubs name (now A.ş. actually) it's NOT " oh we are talking about footbal team of Galatasaray, let's say FC..." That doesn't work like that stop that gibberish, A club is aptly titled as a whole, so there's no seperate Galatasaray FC, Galatasaray BC, Galatasaray VC etc...

The name of the page[edit]

The name of the page galatasaray (football team) instead of FC Galatasaray is even more beautiful in this way does not look very nice —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.246.242.242 (talk) 18:53, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

The team is never called Galatasaray FC in English, so that would not be an appropriate title. Ilikeeatingwaffles (talk) 22:45, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Why not be appropriate. Galatasaray (football team) never afford a nice name does not name any of the team a badly written — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leonade16 (talkcontribs) 17:13, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm afraid that I cannot understand the point that you are trying to make. Ilikeeatingwaffles (talk) 17:45, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

galatasaray s.k. can separate page for the same football fenerbahçe sk page, as well as —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.79.132 (talk) 17:57, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

There are already separate pages for the football section and the multi-sports club. Ilikeeatingwaffles (talk) 20:41, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

True, but do not want to tell you that no other team in such a scheme as a priority Galatasaray SK football page does not isolate the problem, I believe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.68.130 (talk) 14:06, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

I still don't understand the point you are trying to make. Ilikeeatingwaffles (talk) 14:41, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

I do not know exactly in English so I can not explain what I mean. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.68.130 (talk) 15:16, 22 March 2011 (UTC) In addition to being football page of the necessary shape of such an order does not think any other club Galatasaray SK page has lost importance.

Galatasaray SK (football team) do not need to page[edit]

Football main page to page, such as the importance of Galatasaray SK lost their other branches should separate page, Would not it be a subject to redirect from there to open the mind of an amateur like Fenerbahce page —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.242.252.218 (talk) 13:48, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Galatasaray A.Ş.[edit]

The name of the page Galatasaray SK (football team) instead Galatasaray A.Ş. Would not it be more logical if the name is already in the UEFA goes this way —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.242.250.101 (talk) 06:59, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Galatasaray A.Ş.[edit]

The name of the page Galatasaray SK (football team) instead Galatasaray A.Ş. Would not it be even? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.108.119.203 (talk) 19:10, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

As a fluent speaker of Turkish, I'm a little confused by the description of Galatasaray's native pronunciation. It is pronounced Gala-tasaray, with the pause in Turkish exactly where it is with a foreign pronunciation. The only difference is where English speakers would say "Galatasa" with the "a" sounding like an "a" as in "apple", you'd instead pronounce the "a"s as the "u" in "bus". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.112.67.151 (talk) 00:12, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was not moved. --BDD (talk) 23:20, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Galatasaray S.K. (football)Galatasaray A.Ş. – Official name of the football club as recognised by the Turkish Football Federation and UEFA. FXT 04:03, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Note: This discussion has been included in WikiProject Football's list of association football-related page moves. BDD (talk) 17:44, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I have never heard of this club being referred to as 'Galatasaray A.Ş.'. A more sensible page move would be:
Galatasaray S.K. (football)Galatasaray S.K.
and
Galatasaray S.K.Galatasaray S.K. (sports club)

given the football department's clear primary fame. GiantSnowman 13:21, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose - If I remember correctly "A.Ş." is the abbreviation appended to companies in Turkey. Clearly "S.K." is the more appropriate abbreviation if that is the case. I have no preference regarding GiantSnowman's suggestion above, but we definitely shouldn't be using "A.Ş." in my opinion. – PeeJay 19:12, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose - per Snowman and PeeJay. – Michael (talk) 23:13, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.
