Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

It happens to the best of teams on occasions, especially in pre-season friendly matches. AC Milan and Hibs can testify to that recently !!


As I said in a previous post, AEK has an impressive YooRo Footie pedigree and are never an easy team to beat. Ankaragucu were 3-0 down at half time last night and staring a heavy defeat in the face. Not sure if the defence was tightened in the 2nd half or if AEK eased off the Gas !!

The last match of Ankaragucu's Germany Camp will be tomorrow night against Limassol.

As some of you may remember from the early days of this Blog, I was a referee in the Cyprus Leagues and have refereed both Limassol teams (AEL and Appollon) on many occasions. However, I don't know which one will feature tomorrow night.

I would compare Limassol as the Ankara of Cyprus and Nicosia as the Istanbul of Cyprus. It is normally Omonia and Apoel of Nicosia fighting it out at the top with AEL, Appollon and Anothosis of Larnaca fighting it out for the UEFA Cup places.

So, that said, I would expect Limassol to give ANKARAGUCU another testing match tomorrow as they wrap up their tour.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
