Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Apologies for delayed report this week, but as I said a few days ago, all three Ankaragucu reporters were tied-up on other business this weekend.

Not much I can say that the headline doesn't say !!

ANKARAGUCU  0   Sanliurfa   1

Team -

Bayram, Enes, Volkan, Aytac, Mehmet, Kaan, Serkan, Bilal, Gokhan, Teoman and Timur

Substitutes used - Hasan and Umut

According to the Hurriyet newspaper, the Man of the Match was Urfa's goalkeeper, Atacan, and that was probably due to the fact that he saved a penalty from Timur !

Urfa scored their goal through Kivanc near the end, which must have had a devastating effect on the young Ankaragucu players who perhaps thought that they were at least going to win one point.

As it is, after Kartal won their match today, Ankaragucu is now drifting further away from the 4th bottom team and are now 9 points adrift.

As Nadeem and Damon mentioned recently, we are all resigned to Ankaragucu's relegation to the 2nd League (Beyaz or Kirimzi) at the end of this season.    The main concern now is ........ how many players will be left (if any) to form a team next season ??!!

Not a happy report.   However, if you would like to be cheered-up a little, then go one post back and read Oz Kanka's report of Gencler's victoreeeeeee

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. This is the lowest point in AG's history as far as I can tell.

  2. It is the fact that there seems to be no plan at all to stop the free fall that is so depressing.

    Thats what I was thinking Oz.Since all this began there seems to have been NO ONE in authority that stood up and demanded that something be done to arrest this slide.Its all had a terrible inevitability about it.All you guys could see it but not so any of the Powers That Be.

    Dublin Neil.
