Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Maybe my 'dragon' looked into her crystal ball to find the dates for the TSYD (Ankara Sportwriters Cup) and then booked our hotel in Bodrum to ensure that we were there and not in Ankara !! As you all know, dragons are dangerous and never more so than when they seek revenge, but I'm not Bilbo Baggins !!!
Maybe it was a coincidence that she booked the hotel whilst the TSYD Cup was scheduled to play ? However, I doubt that ! And ..... more importantly, why wasn't I consulted ??!!
The bottom line is that I will miss my first TSYD Cup Competition for many years. Boo hoo hoo ...... tears of sadness cascading down my face !
So, we will have to rely on Maniac or Battle Damaged Kankas reporting the matches if they are in Ankara when the matches take place on 30/31 July. Or, our 'all seeing and all knowing' oracle Bellshill Kanka in Weegieland, ie, Glasgow !
Ankaragucu and Gencler wil be in 'the hat' but I don't know the other 2 teams yet. I would guess that 'new boys' Samsun will receive an invite and possibly Kayseri, or, dare I say it ......... Ankaraspor ..... arrrrrrgh !!!!
As always, watch this space for further.
Meanwhile, we still await the League Fixture List !!!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim ..... who is afraid of dragons !!
