Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Bad luck for Ankaragucu yesterday to have Firat Aydinu appointed to officiate the match !
It was honours even until the 24th minute when Koray of Ankaragucu was blatantly kicked by Makukula while he was lying on the ground.
The photos of the incident in The Hurriyet doesn't actually show that contact was made, but the intent looks clear enough to me.
So, what action does Mr Aydinus take ? A YELLOW card for BOTH players !!!
So, I return to my headline. Was he 'a homer', or did he 'chicken out', or does he urgently require to visit a specialist and have an appointment with an Opthalmic Surgeon ???
By the way, The Hurriyet marked him 4 out of 10, which is an unusually low mark for that newspaper !
Obviously this incident changed the course of the match which Kayseri went on to win 3-0, as I reported last night. However, there was no mention in The Hurriyet of the fighting which Phillie Kanka mentioned. Perhaps another Battle of Kayseri ensued later ???
Cangele scored after 33 minutes. Ten minutes into the 2nd half and Mehmet Eren put the match beyond Ankaragucu, and kick-boxer Makukula wrapped it up in the dying minutes when he should have been taking an early bath in the 1st half !!!
The Ankaragucu starting line-up was -
El-Yasa, Koray, Risp and Broggi
Semavi, Barbaros, Murat Duruer and Hurriyet
Ceyhun and Metin
2nd half substitutes were Vassell, Emre and Mehmet Cakir
So, we come back down to earth again. It just means that Ankaragucu has another mountain to climb in 2 weeks time at the Inonu Stadium. Let's face it, if Ankaragucu can score THREE against Galatasaray then there is nothing to fear from that other lot from Istanbul is there ?!
No doubt we will be watching it in The Chopin Bar. Details nearer the time.
All the best from 'Aydinus Hater', Eski Kanka Jim
PS ...... Aydinus tried to make amends for his effin cock-up by gifting Ankaragucu a penalty at the end. Ahem ..... Mehmet Cakir didn't accept the present !!!
