Manisaspor 4-0 Ankaragucu live blogging !

1930 -  Ankaragucu take on Manisaspor tonight knowing they have to take something from the game to keep touching distance with their relegation rivals. They will have to do without the suspended Timur which is a huge blow but the good news is that Mert and Kaan have passed fitness tests and will start.

Confirmed Teams:

Ankaragucu - Bayram, Bilal, Volkan, Aytac, Mehmet, Gurkan, Mert, Enes, Gokhan, Kaan, Umut Nayir

Manisaspor - Volkann, Ismail, Hikment, Huseyin, Murat, Iwanski, Kahe, Tousn, Benjamin, Cem, Eray

The gulf in class showed tonight as Ankaragucu were outclassed in every department by their opponents. It will now take a miracle if Ankaragucu are to stay in the PTT Lig. There was more crowd trouble at the game with both sets of fans involved.


  1. Well, the fat lady just sang, and it was not an Ankaragucu tezahüratı.

  2. I agree with Damon, i said when the transfer window closed that our hopes of staying up were dead. The problem we have is as soon as 1 player gets injured it effects our team more than others because we dont have the quality to replace them.

    Timur was missed badly tonight, and at the weekend we now have to do without Mert who is suspended.

  3. A 'bad day at the office' for Ankaragucu (and Hibs !!).

    Couldn't comment last night. Recovering from my 19 hours nightmare journey from Edinburgh to Ankara .... aaaarrrrgh !

    Time to take a 'realistic pill' and finally concede that Ankaragucu will be dropping down into the 'amateur' 2nd Division next season. As Nadeem said, it will now need a miracle for them to survive in the PTT League, and we haven't seen too many of them in the past 2 years !

    I'm sure the young players will do their best for the remaining matches this season, but as I said a year ago, there are no duff teams and no easy matches in the PTT League.

  4. The league we will be playing in next season is the beyaz red group lig 2. Half our team are out of contract at the end of season to so the downgrading will continue.
