And in today's paper


Not quite a story about us but Sabah newspaper's Ankara pullout did mention to get a few of the Kankas onto its sports page, including Maniac Kanka Harun's efforts at getting the German ambassador to put on an Ankaragucu top.

Comments

  1. Thank you Nathan.

    Definitely a `scoop` for ANKARAGUCU. I wonder if this photo will find its way back to Germany and feature in their sports pages ??!!

    Our next quest will be to have the British Ambassador photographed with an ANKARAGUCU top.

    It will not be easy, but if Frodo can deliver The Ring to Mordor against all the odds, then there is always hope for my quest !!!

  5. ...... ahemmm......and I was wondering when Oz Kanka was going to say it !! I never thought for one moment that a beautiful Turkish lady would mention it.... tut tut tut shock horror !!!

    As for Maniac Kanka's suggestion, yes go ahead and do your utmost. With Lanky Kanka Jorg heading back to Germany soon, he won't be there to `intimidate` his Ambassador with threats of Genclerbirligi retribution !!!

  7. Hey Kankalar, I have a strange question for you. Do you guys know Tanil Bora?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Of course we know Tanil Bora. He sits with us, or near us, for most Gencler games.

  9. Someone was telling me about him - does he write books on Sport Management or something? What is his background?

  11. Tanil Bora writes sports and politics articles for Radikal newspaper.

  12. I'm quite happy to look at photos of Gulay wearing ANY shirt. I'm sure `the husband` will agree with my sentiments ?!

    By the way Nathan, the Radikal is not as radical as The Guardian !!

  13. I've never seen Gulay; is she quite "the looker?"

    ReplyDelete
  14. Without wishing to embarrass Gulay, I would say that the answer is ......... most definitely !

    Turkey is world famous for its `Turkish Delights` !!!

  15. I love how we are talking about Gulay as if she doesn't read this....

    Yes, Eski, I know what you mean. If I were single, I would have already moved to Turkiye by now. Turkish women are the best in the world...

  16. Gulay does read this, I assure you. I'm sure "the husband" does too.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Don't worry Nathan. The Husband is an Ingallish gentleman and would never ..... nay..... never, take offence !!!

    Anyway, I'm sure he agrees with every word we said !

  18. tanil bora'a a bit of an intellectual, isn't he? writes about nationalism and stuff. he's an editor for an academic publisher in ankara as well as a columnist. he might write about sports management but I'd expect he was more interested in the politics and sociology of sport.
