Genclerbirligi 1 - Antalya 0
I managed to miss my first home match of the season today as I took Little Oz Kanka off to a Christmas party at the Red Lion Club.
Matthew received a little red car from Father Christmas while I got a 1-0 victory for Gencler.
I'm not sure how many kankas went along to the match and if you were there I wouldn't mind if you filled out some of the details missing from the report on the Milliyet newspaper website at the moment, details such as ... the second half.
But looking at Milliyet's report of the first half it looked like I made a right decision to drink beer with Father Christmas. The report has just three entries.
34th minute: Mehmet Cakir takes a freekick from outside the box and it goes out.
37th minute: Mehmet Cakir sends in a pass to Okan Ozturk who heads it straight to the keeper.
45th minute: Isaac Promise gets into the box and kicks the ball straight to the keeper.
No idea how the second half went but it seems as if Okan Ozturk scored at some stage towards the end. As I said before, if you were at the match it would be great if you could help fill in some of the details.
The win pushes us slightly higher up the table and means we finish the first half of the season in fifth place (possibly one lower depending on the results of other games). Not to bad really. While Fenerbahce are running away with the league there is still a good chance we can finish in the top three and thus earn a UEFA Cup spot for next season.
By the way, the reason there has been no report yet on the Ankaragucu- Fenerbahce match işs because Sir Eski Kanka has been having hassles trying to post it. I'm sure he will sort this out soon.
