Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

This is a milestone in The Round Ball in Ankara.

This is the 500th Post on this Blog in One and a Half Years of existence.

As it is the brainchild of Oz Kanka, I would like to congratulate him, on behalf of all the Kankas, Kankies and Vistors to the Blog for his sterling efforts and his leadership as our Chief Journalist.

Well done Oz, and here's to the next 500 posts and the 500 to follow !

Keep the posts and comments coming and, as always, be controversial and forthright !

Long live footie in Ankara ......... and elsewhere !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Congratulations on the milestone to all you guys......even if the footie may be in the nether reaches of the leagues next season.....sorry could not resist it

  2. Thanks for your congratulations Gulay.

    I have an idea !

    As we will have FOUR Ankara teams in the Super League next season, why don't we amalgamate and call ourselves ANKARA UNITED ???

    We can then kill two birds with one stone, ie, kiss CavCav and Aydin bye bye !!!

    Good idea ???

  3. Ooooops.... sorry.... make that THREE birds with one stone.

    Forgot about Gokcek !!!

  4. 500 already. I didn't even realise.

  5. well done to everybody.and special thanks to jim and chris.good job!

  6. Congratulations to the bloggers! When is the celebration and beer?:)

  7. Oz Kanka and Eski Kanka are famous for their generosity.

    So, Safak, ......... come to The Red Lion Club in Ankara and we will supply all you can consume !!!

  8. Maybe this summer, because I'am doing a graduation for Engineering Management I don't know if I will be ready to go on holiday to Turkey. But if the possibility will come, I will certainly do
