The Persian name was Dersaadet—Door to the Ultimate Happiness. The Greeks called it Teofilaktos—City Guarded by God; the Romans, Nuova Roma—New Rome; the Arabs, Farrouk—City Separating Two Continents; and the Ottoman Turks, Ummti-diinya—Mother of the World. Now, and since 1923 when the Turkish Republic formally renamed it, it is called Istanbul, meaning just The City—as though there were none other to compare.

For arguments sake, let's say Turkey picks the Olympics of Euro 2020. That leaves the UEFA with no bids. What would be UEFA's next step? Extend the bidding deadline and hope somebody else comes forward or go begging to an established football power that has the stadiums and infrastructure ready to go like Germany, Spain, Italy, England, or even Portugal again?

I don't think it's likely Turkey will choose the Olympics over the Euro, but if they do I think UEFA would simply go to Germany. The Germans said all along that they would only bid if Turkey didn't.

Turkey knows they have Euro 2020 already secure, so I wouldn't wait for them to quit... I agree that if there are no bids then Germany will be the host for sure...

I think if Turkey did decided to drop the Euro bid, UEFA would ask Germany to host, if Germany said no England, then Russia. There are significant problems with Italian stadiums and Spain will not drop their Olympic bid. Portugal is in a big, but stable mess.

This isn't going to help....

Fenerbahce football fans riot in Istanbul after derby

Hundreds of fans from Istanbul football club Fenerbahce have clashed with Turkish police and occupied the pitch after a title match.

The team's traditional rival, Galatasaray, won the Turkish league championship following Saturday's goalless derby.

Police used their shields to protect Galatasaray players on the pitch at Fenerbahce's Sukru Saracoglu stadium.

Officers used pepper spray to disperse fans as players fled to changing rooms.

The violence followed a tense game during which referee Cuneyt Cakir booked several players and issued red cards to one player from each team.

After the final whistle, fans broke plastic chairs and threw them at the police and Galatasaray players. Flares were also thrown.

Violence continued outside the stadium, with Fenerbahce fans pelting a police vehicle with stones.

Rioters overturned rubbish bins and smashed shop windows, leaving nearby streets littered with debris.

Fenerbahce fans in Istanbul's Kadikoy district also overturned two police vehicles and set them on fire.

While journalists, players and even policemen were said to have been affected by pepper spray, there were no reports of injuries.

However, elsewhere in the country a 29-year-old man wearing a Galatasaray shirt was attacked by Fenerbahce fans and stabbed in the abdomen, the state-run Anatolia agency said. The man was said to be in a stable condition.

Galatasaray ended the four-way title play-offs with 48 points, one ahead of Fenerbahce. Trabzonspor were third and Besiktas fourth.

Galatasaray, former Uefa Cup winners, are now level on 18 championships with Fenerbahce.

Their fans celebrated in Istanbul, dancing, lighting flares and waving flags.
