Greetings Kankas. It is good to be back at the centre of the Universe..... BUYUK BASKENT ANKARA !

However, on a sad note, I sense some distancing from the original concepts of the Kanka fraternity. If some of the recent members go back into the `Best Of` articles you will see and read about our humble beginnings and the cameradie that was the meaning of us kankas, whether ANKARAGUCU or Gencler.

So, it was with sadness that I read about the `auctioning` of the Gencler kombine tickets whilst I was in Bodrum.

Last season for instance, Oz Kanka, Viking Kanka and I shared our kombine tickets around if we couldn't attend a particular match and I am sorry to hear that this practice has been discontinued.

I am not going to name names, but for God's sake let's try and keep our original concept intact and let's try to be kankas in act and name !!!

It has often been said (falsely by the Ingallish !) that Scottish people are tight fisted and mean. Intelligent people can laugh at this MYTH now, so please let's not get into this again. If anyone has a kombine ticket and can't attend a match then please offer it to a fellow kanka.

Comments awaited.


  1. By the way, the kombine ticket was actually handed over for free, as can be attested by Viking Kanka who received e-mails to such an effect a few days ago.

    Don't worry Sir Eski, the spirit is still there

  2. And I should add that it was the wonderful French Kanka Hande who gave her ticket for away for free.

  3. OK........ kisses for French Kankie Hande and good news that she is showing us all the way !!!

    Good luck to Gencler today and I hope Gecikondu is full to cheer them on to victoreeeeee.
