Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Imagine my surprise this morning when I opened the Hurriyet and saw the headline `ANKARA`DA MISKET HAVASI`. There was a photograph of Jaba of Brasil who plays for `the other Ankara team` doing `his version` of the Ankara Misket after scoring a goal against Rize last weekend.

Obviously news travels fast in this great city and even the players have decided to copy the antics of Oz Kanka and yours truly.

A word of caution though for Mr Jaba. I noticed that his arms were not at the correct angle when his knees were bent. Don't get me wrong. All credit to him for attempting this difficult dance, but I feel he is in need of some professional instruction from the trend setters of Gecikondu !!

If you come to the matches on Friday and Saturday you might have a free demonstration from Ankara's two dancing kings !!

By the way, on the subject of footie, I don't want to frighten the Gencler contingent, but, you should know that Friday's opponents, Manisa, are still undefeated in the league and are firing on all cylinders.

The only other undefeated team is CimBom - the draw specialists !!!

All the best from twinkle toes, Eski Kanka Jim


  1. I noticed that Ankaragucu are in exactly the same position as Gencler were last season, three points from five games. We almost made it into Europe, lets see if your lot can do the same

  2. With CimBom, Fener, BJK, Trabzon and Kayseri to do the biz this week and the coming weeks, it is a distinct possibility.

    `Never say Never` is the motto of the ANKARAGUCU supporters clubs !!!!
