Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
With Oz Kanka on his way to the south coast on holiday, let me try and keep you up-to-date with what's going on with Genclerbirligi's fixtures.
The Super League kicks off tonight (KO 9.45pm) in Antalya, with the home side playing against Erciyes.
As Oz told most of you in an email recently, Gencler will be playing tomorrow night 17 August KO 8pm in Rize. The match will probably be on one of the League TV channels.
Gencler's first home match will be the following week on Friday night 23 August against Akhisar and the KO will be ......... wait for it ....... another 9.45pm.
So, if any of the Gencler Kankas are going to this match then please make a brief report for the Blog. If you can't access the Blog to do this, then send it to me and I'll copy and paste.
As for Ankaragucu, the season is all about pre-season friendlies at the moment as you can see from Nadeem's recent report.
The League season for Ankaragucu will KO on 8 September with a home match against Gungoren. However, we are still under a Stadium Ban from last season's 'problems' so it will be ladies and children only in attendance.
The first home match which we will be able to attend in on 27 October against Pazar !!!
Hopefully the Ankaragucu 'supporters' who caused this 'problem' last season will have learned their lesson and will heed Mehmet Bey's warning about stadium behaviour this season.
10 Months without being able to watch a home match is the type of punishment we do NOT want to witness again !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
