Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Time to bid farewell to two of our long suffering..... ooooopps..... I mean.... serving kankas.

Clueless Kankie Vicki is now back in the Yoo-Ess-ov-Ai in their Buyuk Baskent and we all wish you well on your final assignment Vicki. Vicki didn't have a clue about footie when she came to Ankara and she is still none the wiser !! However, we all forgive you for that because you are such a sweetie ! Look forward to seeing you back here in 1 to 2 years and perhaps this time we can teach you about The Round Ball.

Train Spotting Kanka Andrew returns to Ingallind on Sunday and we also wish you well too, even if you are going to a `foreign` country ! Andrew has been a stalwart at ANKARAGUCU matches, but has also attended matches to support our brother team Gencler.

We hope you too will return sometimes, preferably during the footie season, and we know you will keep in touch with us by email and through The Blog. In the meantime, we will be following the exploits of your boys in Ingallind, Colchester United, and in Bonnie Scotland, Hamilton Accies.

All the best to you both from Eski Kanka Jim on behalf of all kankas.


  1. Good luck to both of you. It was great to have met you both and to learn about all sorts of weird stuff, including just how deadly some sorts of whiskey can be.

  2. Whisky ??? Mmmmm.... I have another word for it ......

    MOONSHINE !!!!
