Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
As reported by Oz Kanka recently, the demise of Ankaraspor has been sealed. The idea that FIFA or UEFA will spring to their defence in the appeal is laughable. Birds of a Feather flock together ..... and so it will be within FIFA and UEFA when all the 'fat cats' close ranks !
So, what of the players who have been left 'high and dry' ?
Well, Ankaragucu has already signed Ediz, Hurriyet, Risp and Mehmet Cakir, to name but four, who have played a vital part in the recent revival of Ankaragucu.
But, not content with that .... the Exodus continues !!
It was reported in The Hurriyet today that NINE more Ankaraspor players are on their way to Ankaragucu.
Foreigners Senecky, Brabec, Meye and Neca. Also, Turkish players Adem Kocak (returning to his previous Club), Aydin Karabulut, Ilhan Parlak, Ozgur Cek and Unut Sozen.
OK, some might say ...... oh great ..... new talent ! However, I'm wondering if we are not too top heavy - a point made by Oz Kanka a few posts ago.
Of course, it is too early to judge, but it will be interesting to see how Hikmet Karaman juggles his large squad and who he will eventually offload to make room for the newcomers.
A coach can only have so many on the bench and the players sitting in Protocol will only take that for so long.
Interesting days ahead for Ankaragucu me thinks ??!!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
