ANKARAGUCU v Genclerbirligi

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

You may recall that I gave some `interesting` statistics in a post a few months ago concerning historical scores between ANKARAGUCU and Gencler.

Well, it seems to me that I now have the proof that the Sports Editor of Hurriyet reads our Blog !

In this morning's (Thursday) Hurriyet was a set of mouth-watering statistics but no acknowledgement that they were `nicked` from The Round Ball in Ankara. Hurriyet must understand that as we are now `World Famous` we should be acknowledged as such !!

So, let's look at the statistics and see if it gives us a pointer for Sunday's match.

Since the formation of the Turkish Super League in its present form (1959), ANKARAGUCU and Gencler have played each other 64 times, and in the 1st match of the 1959 season ANKARAGUCU won 4-2.

In total, ANKARAGUCU has won 26 times, Gencler 18 times and 19 matches have been drawn. In all those matches, ANKARAGUCU scored 90 goals and Gencler 79.

The highest score recorded (and this is my favourite !!!) was in 1990/1991 when ANKARAGUCU put Gencler to the sword by 7-2 !!!

It should also be mentioned that ANKARAGUCU beat Gencler 5-1 in season 1965/1966.

Don't you just love those figures ???

So, what does it tell us about Sunday's match eh ?

Quite clear to me kankas...............

Using my renowned mathematical logic, it is another bumper win coming up for ANKARAGUCU. Also, it stands to reason that if CimBom can only score 3 against Gencler then ANKARAGUCU should be able to score at least SIX !!! QED !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim......... on a high !


  1. Mmmmm. Is it true that Sir Eski Kanka has been sending out e-mails to various Ankaragucu kankas in order to get a decent crowd at the Chopin?

    Us Gencler kankas don't need to beg to get people along to a match. See you on Sunday everyone.

  2. Nah nay never..... surely Eski Kanka wouldn't stoop so low, or, would he ???!!!
