Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Unfortunately, there were no Cup shocks yesterday and today in Group B.

Trabzon beat Denizli BBS 6-0 at home yesterday, and today Galatasaray beat Ordu 3-0 in Ordu.

So, that puts the pressure on Ankaragucu to beat Trabzon at home on Thursday if they want to claim 1st or 2nd place in the Group. A win would almost certainly do that since Trabzon lost out to Galatasaray in the first Group match.

I understand that the Ankaragucu v Trabzon match will be an evening KO on Thursday. That being the case, I will be unable to attend due to an important darts match taking place between Oz Kanka's team and mine !! However, the match will be on TRT TV and we will be able to watch all the Ankaragucu goals in The Red Lion Club ??!!

We have to hope that new coach, Lemerre, has used the winter break in Antalya to prepare the team for this important match. A good Cup run will be essential to the confidence of the players whilst at the same time they are trying to climb out of the relegation zone !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

  5. Today is finally the day of the Gucu vs. Trabzon match. Yesterday I read in the Ankara section of Hürriyet a short piece on how impressed Lemerre was with Serkan. I'm curious to see whether he'll be starting tonight.
