Greetings Kankas.

It's that time of the year again when the season kicks off with the Ankara Sportswriters Cup as the curtain raiser for the Super League next week.

Whaaaaaaat ?    No Ankaragucu in the mix ?    Shock horror !!!

Perhaps they received an invitation and decided that they were too good for this competition and continued to train at their Bolu Camp ??!!

Well, at least there is one Ankara team in the competition ....... Genclerbirligi !

It all kicks off tonight at 19 Mayis Stadium and the details are as follows -

10 August - KO 8pm - Konyaspor v Genclerbirligi
10 August - KO 10pm - Elazigspor v Kayseri Erciyes

11 August - KO 7pm - 3rd and 4th place
11 August - KO 9pm - Final

Only two more words to say ...............

C'mon Gencler !!!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Bad news I'm afraid.......

    According to The Hurriyet this morning Gencler failed to make it to the final.

    The Hated Konyaspor beat Gencler 1-0.

    In the other match, Kayseri Erciyes beat Elazigspor 3-1.

    Did any of the Gencler Kankas go to the match last night ? If so, how about a brief report ?

    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

  2. Only a small piece in The Hurriyet this morning to say ....

    KONYA won the Sportswriters Cup !

    The match finished 1-1 at full time and then Konya beat Erciyes 4-3 on penalties.

    I refuse to say ......... well done Konya !!!!

  3. where are all the Gencler Kankas ???

  4. I can tell you that Oz Kanka Chris has been involved with cricket for the most part of the summer and is about to head down south on his hols. Flying Dutchman Kanka Carlo has been in Kloggyland and is arriving back now or soon. As for the others, I can't comment.

    btw, I forgot to check if Gencler or Elazig finished 3rd, but is it really important ?
