THE TURKISH CUP - GROUP STAGE

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

The draw for the Turkish Cup Group Stage was made late last week, and true to form, has done no favours for Ankaragucu.

Fenerbahce
Ankaragucu
Genclerbirligi
Bucaspor
Yeni Malatyaspor

Since the beginning of the 21st Century, Gencler's successful runs in the UEFA Cup, Turkish Cup and Sportswriters Cup should make them 2nd favourites alongside Fener to proceed into the final Knock Out Phase.

Of course, as we all know, the unexpected can always happen in Cup matches, so at this stage we can at least be hopeful, if not optimistic !!

The schedule is as follows -

Wednesday 10 November

KO 7pm - Buca v Malatya
KO 8pm - ANKARAGUCU v Fener

Wednesday 22 December

GENCLER v ANKARAGUCU
Fener v Buca

Wednesday 12 January

Malatya v Fener
Buca v GENCLER

Sunday 16 January

ANKARAGUCU v Buca
GENCLER v Malatya

Wednesday 26 January

Fener v GENCLER
Malatya v ANKARAGUCU

Let battle commence !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    to be fair Jim, we have done well out the fixtures, we have two home games against fenerbahce and bucaspor, then the game against gencler is still at our stadium, so one real away game against malatya . we have spent good money and its time the team lived upto there expectations lol

    Nadeem has a point re the fixtures.Aswell as that the last two games in January will be the first games back after the short mid winter break and as such,could have unexpected results.

    I agree with Nadeem about the fixtures, even though I am an Ankaraspor fan I still think you should win your home games.
