Greetings Kankas and Kankies

Oz Kanka mentioned in the previous post that the fixture list for season 2008-2009 has finally been released by the TFF. Better late than never !!

As I said before in a previous post, we have Sportswriters Cup business first on the weekend of 15 to 17 August and then league action begins the following weekend 22 to 24 August.

I should just mention before I go any further that there has been a name change for one of the team’s in the league. Genclerbirligi OFTAS has changed the name of their team to Hacettepe. I believe this was their orginal name in days gone by, and I’m sure Oz Kanka can either confirm this or put me right.

ANKARAGUCU’s fixtures for the 1st half of the season are as follows –

23 – 24 August - Konya (A)
30 – 31 August - Trabzon (H)
13 – 14 September - Gaziantep (A)
20 – 21 September - Istanbul BBS (H)
27 – 28 September - Hacettepe (A)
3-4-5 October - Genclerbirligi (H)
18 – 19 October - Sivas (A)
25 – 26 October – Kayseri (H)
1 – 2 November – Kocaeli (A)
8 – 9 November – Bursa (H)
15 – 16 November - Eskisehir (A)
21-22-23 November – Fenerbahce (H)
29 -30 November – Ankaraspor (A)
5-6-7 December - Galatasaray (H)
12-13-14 December - Besiktas (A)
20 – 21 December - Denizli (A)
24 – 25 January 2009 - Antalya (H)

Please see Oz Kanka’s previous post for the dates of the Turkish Cup matches from the Section Stage to the Final.

For the ANKARAGUCU Kankas dreaming of a visit to Bursa and Antalya this season, I’m afraid we shall have to exercise patience. I estimate that the match in Bursa will be in March 2009 and the final match of the season will be in Antalya in May or June 2009.

Let’s bring it on, and sing all together …………….. Here we go, here we go, here we go, Here we go-ohhh here we go !!!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
