THE TURKISH CUP - A VERY INTERESTING DRAW !!

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

  1. As far as I can see we will have home advantage. Your lot will have to make the long walk around the stadium.

  2. OK then, but we will be let out of our `cage` first and you lot will have to wait for an hour with the lovely Policemen for company.

    I'll probably be on my 2nd victory EFES by the time you lot arrive at Chopin !!!!

  5. That makes me feel better. I think I'll go watch Northwich Victoria play Rushden and Diamonds in the conference next weekend. Might go in my Gucu gear and see what happens. Poor substitute for the Baskent derby.

  7. I might well do that. I'll try to drag my mate from Manchester into it. He's a United supporter but I can twist his arm.

  8. Don't worry Kirkcaldy Kanka, I can assure you that he will come !

    There is not much point watching ManYoo or any other team in the Prem League, because as we all know, Chelsinski are going to win the league AGAIN !!

    Boring Boring Ingallind !!!
