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
