Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Correction to the Post - Ankaragucu Swings and Roundabouts.

Yours truly and Maniac jumped the gun !!

Apparently Hikmet Karaman was offered the position of coach but probably the thought of working with Cemal Aydin for a 3rd stint didn't fill him with joy ! I wonder why ?? The coach mentioned by Maniac also turned the job down for what reason I know not. Perhaps taking on a team which is 3rd bottom of the league didn't appeal ??!!

So, officially now ........... the new coach is Unal Karaman.

Don't know much about him. He played briefly for Ankaragucu in his younger days (he is 40 something now). He was also on the coaching staff of Trabzon.

Whatever. He has an awesome responsibility and all credit to him for accepting the challenge. It goes without saying that we in The Round Ball in Ankara wish him success. Time will tell as he strives to lift Ankaragucu up into mid-table security.

For the present, I will be interested to see his tactics for today's match against Kayseri. Will we go into a defensive shell and play for a 0-0, or will he opt to attack from the start ?

Watch this space tomorrow for the answer.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
