Ankaragucu say farewell to the Turkish Super Lig

Ankaragucu say farewell to the Turkish Super Lig this weekend as they play there final league game at home to Kayserispor on Saturday.

The question is, how long will it take Ankaragucu to return if ever ? In the previous three times Ankaragucu have been relegated they have bounced back twice at the first attempt. This time it will take a miracle for Ankaragucu to return first time, the club look set for another relegation battle next season.

The young side will take to the pitch on Saturday hoping they can get that first win in 17 attempts since they took on Mersin back in January. Kayserispor have had a poor season themselves and will be disappointed that they haven't finished in the European Places. Although Manager Shota Arveladze is building a young side for the future and will be hoping to push on next season.

The last time the two sides met Kayserispor won 3-0 thanks to goals from John Troisi (2) and Sefa Yilmaz. They will be hoping to finish there season with a win and have some very good players in Sefa Yilmaz, John Troisi, Christian Riveros and the talented Nordin Amrabat.

Ankaragucu will welcome back Ishak Dogan from suspension and will look to give the Tribunes something to smile about in what can only be described as the worst season in the clubs history.

    Yes indeed a sad season for Ankaragucu winds to a close.And an uncertain future ahead.Things can only get better, cant they?NO I hear you all cry!
    Any way the ridiculous play off system as outlined by Nadeem above gave me a head ache just reading it.However, though I cant find the relevant post going back to the start of the season, I would like to remind everyone that the Turkish football novice which I am in comparison to the rest of you guys not only predicted who would finish on top at the end of the season but if memory serves, I THINK I called the top four in the correct order if it stays as it is now!!

  2. I'll be there on Saturday. First time I've been to an Ankaragucu match for a couple of years. This is indeed a sad time.
