Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Well at least one kanka has something positive to say this weekend !

ANKARAGUCU 1 Sakaryaspor 0

So, ANKARAGUCU delivered the goods, ie, 3 valuable points. However, I'm sure it must have been nail-biting stuff for the supporters.

0-0 with 15 minutes to go, and then............. Eski Kanka's new hero, Bebbe, grabbed the winner to settle the nerves.

Unfortunately, I was not able to be there, but according to the Foto Mac Newspaper it was pretty even in the 1st half. ANKARAGUCU stepped up a gear in the 2nd half (I wonder if Hikmet Bey had something to do with that ??!!) and produced the better footie and goal scoring opportunities.

Breathing space has been achieved, but......... it is not a time for complacency yet ! With 3 matches left it is still all to play for down at the bottom.

Sakaryaspor is definitely going down. The situation for the remainder looks like this -

Gencler 39 points
Ankaragucu 39
Bursa 39
Antalya 37
Rize 36
Denizli 36
Antep 36
Erciyes 33

Antalya play Galatasaray tonight, so we are looking to Gulay's boys to put the sword in !!

ANKARAGUCU travel to Antalya next week for what could be described as another `SIX POINTER` ! It is never EASY to win the tight compact Antalya Stadium, so another above average performance will be required to make sure of avoiding a nerve jangling end to the season.

Spare a thought for our `brother team`, Bursa. They have to play Trabzon, Galatasaray and Besiktas in their last 3 matches !!!

All the best from an upbeat Eski Kanka Jim


  1. I reckon we are both okay. All we need is one win, possibly a draw, in one of our last three matches. But as Gulay says it is "sqeaky bum time".

  2. Yes, agreed.

    Like the term `sqeaky bum time`. However, in Eski Kanka's case perhaps `droopy bum time` would be more appropriate ??!!

  3. By the way, Antalya took a point off Galatasaray in Istanbul last night.

    I anticipate more frothing at the mouth in Gulay's Blog !!

  4. WE ARE ON THE 10. PLACE NOT GENÇLER!MAKE İT RİGHT PLEASE.İF ANKARAGÜCÜ AND gençler finished the season at the 15. 16.(SAME POİNTS) places gençler go down!not ANKARAGÜCÜ!

  5. the only one who is frothing at the mouth here is the Husband and thats cause the champers is coming out of his nose after L'Arse drew with Chavski to hand THE title to Manyoo.......

  6. Well done ManYoo. This only goes to prove that you need a Jock Manager to succeed ??!!

    By the way, suggest The Husband desists from drinking that French stuff and sticks to God's gift to the world..... EFES !!!
