Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

It's nail biting time now in Ankara from KO today at 4.30pm until the 31st May Final which hopefully Ankaragucu will contest.

Ankaragucu kick-off their Play-Off match today in Bandirma in what is the 1st Leg of the Quarter Final.  

Having watched the highlights of last Sunday's league match in Bandirma which Nadeem put up on fb, it will have to be a 100% team effort from Ankaragucu to bring something back to Ankara for the 2nd Leg next Tuesday.

Arguably our two best players, Levent and Emre, are still out injured so the onus is on the Coach to instil confidence into the players who have taken their place in the team.

Most of this mornings newspapers make Ankaragucu favourites to reach the final, but that counts for little in the Lottery of the Play-Offs.  

We have blasted the TFF here and fb for their unbelievable decision to make the Play-Off matches KO at 4.30pm which conveniently bars all the working supporters like the Kanka Group from attending.   Aaaaaargh ......... when will the TFF wake up and realise that the bread and butter of footie are the supporters !!!!!   Also, there will be no TV coverage.   So, we will rely on Nadeem to give us a report if he is able.

Otherwise, at least I'll put the score up later tonight.

Go to it Ankaragucu !!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    Not a catatrophe and not a result to be overjoyed about.

    However, as I said to Harun at the end....... just let's imagine that we went 0-1 down at home in the 1st minute. Then, looking on the bright side, we have 89 minutes to score 2 goals ........... yesssssssss !!!!

    I'm still in the mix for going to the 2nd Leg on Tuesday with colleagues trying to cover for me.
