Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Further to my previous blog on the Turkish Cup (ANKARAGUCU - Reason to be Cheerful) the sectional draw has been made and a very interesting situation has developed. We have ANKARAGUCU and Genclerbirligi in the same group !!
The other teams in our Group D are Besik...spit....tas, Rize and Buca from the 2nd League.
The first matches will be played on Wednesday 25 October and Gencler received a `rest day` for that particular day.
ANKARAGUCU will play Rize at home and Besik....spit...tas will play Buca away.
Don't have the KO times yet, but I anticipate an afternoon KO, probably late afternoon. Details when I have them.
So, a `mouthwatering` derby match in the Cup to look forward to. I wonder which team will have home advantage for Gecikondu ???
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
