Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

For those of us who have attended Ankaragucu matches in the 19 Mayis Stadium on a regular basis, we have all witnessed inter-tribune violence/fighting, especially in Gecikondu and Maraton.

Well ..... shock horror and God forbid ........ it might yet happen in the Kanka Tribune. Surely not ..... I can hear you all gasp in amazement ?!

Hmmmm .... it's possible on the 15th of August me thinks !

Why then ?

Well, right in the middle of the Edinburgh Festival at the home of the Mighty Hibernian FC, which is Easter Road Stadium for the un-enlightened, there will be a match which might incite this unbelievable occurrence, especially if it is screened LIVE in the Red Lion Club in Ankara. (KO time to be decided).

Yes, kankas, in the build-up to the 2014 World Cup the match of the decade will take place there between .............

SCOTLAND and ......... australia !!!

Should we allow Oz Kanka and Eski to be at the same venue when this historic match takes place and where will all the kankas loyalties lie ??!!

Bring it on I say, and let those Aussies play those other silly games with the funny shaped ball and that piece of wood where they hit that funny coloured ball out of the brown area into the green area.

The Easter Road Stadium (built 1875) is ready to record another famous win for ..... SCOTLAND THE BRAVE ........ yesssssssssssssssss !!!

Bring it on !!!

All the best from the original Mr Optimism ...... Eski Kanka Jim


  1. im going for a scotland victory in this one jim lol, as you say the aussies are better at those meaningless sports. The real mans game was invented by us the scots, although the chinese claim it was them

  2. You lot are worse than the the English press before any major tournament. Build 'em up to be world champions and then get knocked out in the second round.

    I'm going for a 3-1 victory to Australia, with Scotland's goal to be scored in a very dodgy penalty.

    Bring it on!

    PS: As Bar manager at the Red Lion Club I can assure you that this match will be on the big screen!

  3. lol we dont even get to the second run oz lol

    Its been moved from Hampden Park to Easter Road to satisfy demand for tickets!!!!!!!

    Dublin Neil.

  5. This has the potential to be a great rivalry, two second tier football countries (I'm being generous to Scotland here) who almost speak the same language playing a match a match in Aussie winter conditions (ie summer in Scotland). This has "win, win, win" written all over it (except for Scotland obviously).

  6. Ooooo Neil ........ nasty !!! You obviously haven't been to the NEW Easter Road Stadium. I think for an August match 20,250 screaming Jocks will do just nicely !!

    I've seen Oz Kanka 'eat words' in the past and this is going to be even more fun to watch !!!
