Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Not much I can say about the stalemate in Kocaeli. Suffice to say ...... another bloody frustrating weekend for Ankaragucu and Gencler.
Kocaeli 1 ANKARAGUCU 1
Maniac Kanka Harun, Battle Damaged Kanka Damon, Marash Kanka Hakan and I were enjoying the sun in The Chopin Bar with lottsa luvvlie Efes for company. Off went the Gencler Kankas to the Stadium and I was sure that I had put the kiss of death on Antalya by wearing my Antalyaspor Top. Wrong .............. oooops sorry kankas !!!
News came through that Ankaragucu had opened the scoring through Murat Erdogan after 10 minutes. Cheers all round and cue ............ let's open the bottle of Glenkinchie Single Malt which Battle Damaged was kind enough to bring from the Duty Free Shop. Mmmmmm yummy, although Maniac was not too sure about it !!
Oooops tilt ...... Kocaeli equalised with a penalty 3 minutes later after Moine brought down Taner. cue ..... cork the bottle and wait for the next Ankaragucu goal. Wrong ...... that was it !! However, we did open the bottle again when Kayseri scored against (better not say Sekiztrash again !!!) Besiktas !!
So, Ankaragucu remain in 3rd bottom place in the League with Antalya moving up to within just one point behind. On the upside, Ankaragucu is only 7 points behind Fener in 9th position !!
So to next Saturday, and the match against Bursa takes on added significance. Brotherly love will be maintained by the Tribunes, but I doubt if we will see any brotherly love on the pitch when the match kicks off ! Every point is vital now, and the players know it !
It will probably be a 2pm KO, and if so, we will be meeting at The Chopin Bar at midday.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
