Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

I recall a scenario a few years ago when Ankaragucu was a force in the Super League in the good olde days of  Augustine, Keles, Kutlu, Kennedy, Yilmaz, Niyazi, etc ........... when my class was disrupted one Saturday by a cavalcade of cars driving down Ataturk Bulvari with their horns blaring.    It lasted for about 20 minutes or more and I had to abandon the class to the cafeteria.

It was Elazigspor supporters celebrating winning the play-offs for the Super League at the 19 Mayis Stadium.    Unfortunately, they didn't last long in the Super League and were relegated back down into the Bank Asya League where they have remained ........ that is .............. until now.

With Ankaragucu going 'south' into the Bank Asya League, Elazig is coming 'north' back into the Super League, and good luck to them I say.   They will be joined by the winners of the Bank Asya League, Akhisar BBS.   The 3rd spot will be played out between Rize, Kasimpasa, Konya and Adana.

It will be tough going for unheralded and unknown Akhisar, but hey, didn't Bursa win the league 2 seasons ago ?!   So, isn't anything possible in footie ??!!    The burning question though is ............ will Ankaragucu have something to celebrate this time next year ??!!    

Answers on a post card !!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
