Ankaragucu winter camp round up !

Ankaragucu have been enjoying their winter break in Antalya as they look ahead to the second half of the season. Only 2 points separate Ankaragucu in 3rd and Altinordu in 1st as both teams along with Alanyaspor in 2nd get ready for the fight to become champions.

The club have added Muhammad Gonulacar (Batman Petrolspor), Mehmet Erdem (Polatli), Volkan Yilmaz (Elazigspor), Serhat Aykuz (Balikesirspor) and Mehmet Sin (Fethiyespor). The deal to bring Atabey Cicek from Genclerbirligi on loan has fell through with Gencler changing their mind and it looks like he will now move to Boluspor.

Leaving the club is Teoman Erkan who has joined 1461 Trabzon on loan, Bilal Gundogdu free transfer, Mert Erdogan free transfer, Gokhan Erdogan Mersin,  and Ahmet Akyildiz free transfer. As John reported a couple of days ago, the club has also been handed another transfer ban due to unpaid wages to Ergin Keles and Muhammed Turkman, talks are ongoing as they look to lift the ban before the deadline at the end of the month.

Mehmet Yiginer has lost his bid to become boss of the Ankara taxi companies, but according to some Ankaragucu supporters this is good news as he will remain at the club. Ankaragucu have played 5 games in Antalya with the following results.

Ankaragucu 3-3 Geel (Belgium)

Ankaragucu 2-2 Darnice

Ankaragucu 0-1 Turgutluspor

Ankaragucu 1-2 Aktobe (Kazakhstan)

Ankaragucu 1-0 Pendikspor.

Next Sunday Ankaragucu travel to Istanbul (Turkeys 2nd city) as they face Gungorenspor as the league starts again. Match details and preview will be on the blog midweek.

  3. Nice one.

    Who do Ankaragucu play the first weekend of February?

    Is it at home by any chance?

  4. Greetings Burra Boy. Ankaragucu at home to Eyupspor on either 1 or 2 Feb, but probably 2nd.

    Will you be here ? If so, let me know and we can arrange a tie-up.

  5. Hi Eski.
    Hoping to be in Ankara that weekend. Will confirm later.
    Chopin or Beer bus?

  6. Ankaragucu Kankas use The Chopin.

    However, with the KO being at 1.30pm we have been meeting in The Stadium and going to The Chopin after the match.

    So, having said that Burra Boy, let me know where you will be staying and we can arrange a tie-up there or thereabouts and go to The Stadium together.

  7. Ho ho ho ....... isn't it a small world ?!

    I met Burra Kanka's son, Sam, last night and we had a good few amber nectars together and put the world of footie to rights.

    I was tempted to call him Mini-Burra Kanka, but then I thought ..... errrrrmmmm ..... not a good idea. He's a big boy !!!!

    Next Sunday has all the hallmarks of being a good day and night out !!!
