Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
The merger between Ankaragucu and Ankaraspor has raised its ugly head again !
It has been in the newspapers for the past two days but I was hoping that it was just a lot of hot air. However, it seems as though it is now serious and going forward.
The three Chairmen involved, Melih Gokcek, Cemal Aydin and Cengiz Topel, met three days ago to thrash out a deal and they agreed 'in principle' that it should go ahead. The details, and financial implications, will be discussed at the next meeting on 23 August.
Melih Gokcek was quoted in the Hurriyet this morning as saying that Ankaragucu will be League Champions in the future !!
So, from that remark I assume he intends to retain the team name as Ankaragucu. I would say that is a MUST unless he wants rebellion from the tribunes !!
Another few 'details' to consider is ....... when will this happen (obviously not this season), what is going to happen to The Stadium from Hell in Yenikent and more importantly, how much money is he prepared to plough into the Club to compete with the Istanbul 3 ??
Looking forward to comments from all you kankas who hate Ankaraspor !!!
More news as it unfolds.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
