Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Ankaragucu performed miracles today in the Mickey Mouse Cup ....... ooops sorry ..... I meant to say The Spor Toto Cup.

Did they win I hear you ask ? No, but they did score ......... even if it was a penalty ! So ......... miracles DO happen !

Karabuk 3 Ankaragucu 1

All tongue-in-cheek reporting I'm afraid - I just can't work-up any enthusiasm for this competition. However, on the other hand, and as I said in my previous post, it is a good run-out for the 'Youth Team' who will probably have to play in the very competative Bank Asya League next season.

As Bellshill Kanka Nadeem said, what hope is there when you play a 17 year old 'boy' in goal against a decent Karabuk team ?!

I hate having to end on a sour note, so let me turn upbeat and mention Hibs winning their Scottish Cup semi-final today (Nadeem mentioned it in his previous post). Here's hoping that Hibs can bring the Cup back to the Capital next month yessssss !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. gokhan akkan made his debut in goal and there were debuts for volkan and hasan to.

    In other news it looks like ishak will leave the club with both besiktas and gaziantepspor wanting him and atilla could leave to with karabukspor wanting him

  2. Gökhan, Volkan, Aydın, Ümit, Veli (Dk. 68 Orhan), Serkan, Hasan (Dk. 84 Aybars), Gökhan Erdoğan (Dk. 45 Sinan), Bilal Gülden, Mert Erdoğan, Enes

    team from today

  3. I've been avoiding the blog. Our situation has become so depressing. At least I have Hibbs and Barça to cheer me up.

  4. how do you think i feel ? Rangers are facing liquidation the now as well :-( i am cursed when it comes to football

  5. I have a sensible suggestion to make ....... why doesn't Nadeem cut his losses and be like Damon and Jim, ie, support a successful and debt free team with a spanking Stadium and state of the art Training Facility ?

    No ...... not Barca or Ajax ....... I'm talking about The Mighty Hibernian Football Club of Edinburgh yessssssssssssssss !!!!

    Comments eagerly awaited !!!

  6. a think ill give it a miss Jim lol, well who would have thought it, a Hearts vs Hibs final, should be a good day
