Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

You may recall earlier in the season some ironic comments flashing back and forward between Gulay, Oz Kanka and I concerning which team was going to create a record for most draws this season.

I am now becoming more sure day by day that the Sports Team of Hurriyet actually do read our Blog !! Today it was a discussion point in the newspaper.

So far this season, with 30 league matches played, Melih Gokcek Spor (Ankaraspor for the uninformed !!) has amassed a total of 16 draws. With only 4 matches left they could well beat the League record - they need only 3 more draws to do it !

So which team holds the record then I can hear you asking ??

Trumpet fanfare...... de de de de .............. roll of drums........... brrrrr brrrrr brrrrrr (like the sound effects ??) -

It is .............. ANKARAGUCU !!! Back in season 1982/1983 (in another lifetime) they amassed an amazing 18 drawn matches.

Now then, is that a record worth trumpetting about ?? Impressive isn't it ???!!

All the best from the record seeker, Eski Kanka Jim

  1. Lucky wins were only worth 2 points back in those days otherwise you would have been relegated.
