Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Surprise, surprise ....... another competition has been dreamed-up to further embarrass an already beleaguered Ankaragucu !

The Spor Toto Cup has been introduced to run alongside the play-offs for the Chimps Cup and the Europa Cup.

There are two groups in this 'Mickey Mouse' Cup -

A. Karabuk, Ordu, Samsun and Ankaragucu
B. Antalya, Gaziantep, Kayseri and Gencler

Well, looking at it another way, it gives Ankaragucu 3 matches to prepare for the harsh realities of life in the Bank Asya League, or 6 if it is home and away (not sure about that yet).

This Cup kicks-off this weekend -

Saturday 3pm - Karabuk v Ankaragucu
Sunday 1.30pm - Samsun v Ordu
Sunday 1.30pm - Gaziantep v Gencler
Monday 7pm - Antalya v Kayseri

I doubt very much if these matches will be on TV, but I'll have a looksee tomorrow and let you know. Also, no details yet on further fixtures, but I'll let you know here when known.

Please excuse my lack of enthusiasm !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. what a pile of shite of a tournament this is. The Turkish FA have made a right mess of this season.

    Cihan Ball 17 year old goalkeeper is set to make his debut in the match against Karabukspor.

  2. Please TFF, just end the bloody season.

  3. As I suspected, the Mickey Mouse Cup is NOT on TV which I suppose is a blessing in disguise.

    Watching Ankaragucu get hammered week in and week out is really depressing !!

    Anyway, I'll try and find the score tonight or tomorra and put it up here.
