With the small matter of international matches on this weekend we don't have any local league action. Instead most teams are organising friendlies for those left behind. As these are next to useless I normally don't bother even mentioning them.
I'll make an exception this time as Ankaragucu are taking on Fenerbahce on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.. When I first saw the news I thought I might pop along. The weather in Ankara is still good and I'll take any excuse for a pre-match beer.
That was until I saw the prices. Ankaragucu Chairman Cemal Aydin, not content with sqeezing us fans in the league, has decided to squeeze us in friendlies as well. The tickets for gecekondu are 15tl and 25tl for maraton. This is the same as they were charging last week for the league match against Trabzon.
So I won't be going and I doubt too many others will be either. Cemal Aydin will get to watch Ankaragucu with no supporters. An interesting tactic to avoid hearing chants calling for his resignation?
EDIT: Sunday night result. Ankaragucu 2, Fenerbahce 3
