Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Ankaragucu’s quest for Cup glory was put on-hold last night when they fired blanks at Fener.
ANKARAGUCU 0 Fenerbahce 1
Maniac Kanka Harun watched the match on TV in The Cappadokia Bar and reported an overall improvement in Ankaragucu’s play in comparison to last weekend’s disaster against Kayseri.
Fener created 2 goal scoring positions throughout the match and one was converted by Semih in the 5th minute when he fired in a rocket from 25 metres out.
Ankaragucu, on the other hand, had the lion’s share of play and created 6 goal scoring positions. They also had 54% of possession over the 90 minutes.
However, putting the round ball into the goal past the goalkeeper is the name of the game. Playing attractive and exciting footie is all well and good, but history only remembers WINNERS !
In the other match in this group, Eskisehir surprisingly lost at home 0-2 to Bursa. Perhaps Bursa will feel sorry for Ankaragucu’s plight on 12 November and give us some charity, or …………. perhaps brotherly love will be forgotten on a temporary basis for 90 minutes ??!!
So, still all to play for, but with only one home match against Tokat coming up, the onus is now on Bursa to qualify for the Quarter Finals with Fener.
However, sometimes miracles do happen !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
