Ankaragucu vs Golcukspor match preview !

President Mehmet Yiginer today called for the Ankaragucu fans to remain patient and stop the negative comments. This is in response to both home games where a section of the support has turned on Yiginer and his management team. Yiginer even banned the Sol Kapali tribune leader and increased season ticket prices much to the anger of the fans.

In his statement today, Yiginer said that the team is still unbeaten and only 3 points off the leaders. The team will improve and they need to address the problems in the forward areas. He also said that Ankaragucu were on the way to finishing when him and his management team stepped in. No one else was willing to help.

Although i agree with Harun in that Yiginer should sue Melih Gokcek for the damage he has done to the club, i also agree with Yiginer in that we need to stick together and get behind the team. As he said no one else has come forward to help the club so we should be thankful that he has kept the club alive.

Tomorrows match see Ankaragucu take on amateur side Golcukspor at home and fans can enter the stadium with their season tickets the club have announced. Golcukspor beat Maltepespor 2-1 in the last round showing they will be no pushovers. They were beaten 1-0 at the weekend against Diyarbakirspor in the amateur league.

The league is the priority for Ankaragucu but a cup run can bring much needed money to the club. A home tie against a Super Lig club or even an away match could be a big boost to the club. It will be an opportunity for Muammer Ozdemir to play guys such as Emir Ozbey, Metin Ilhan, Gokhan Erdogan and Levent kale to help with match fitness and give them the opportunity to impress.

Scoring has been the problem for Ankaragucu this season, this is an opportunity to score some goals and give the players confidence going into the weekends match at Altay. Players such as Serhat Gulpinar and Selim Teber should be rested for this game for that reason.

Lets hope we are celebrating victory tomorrow night and progressing into the 3rd round of the Turkish Cup.


  1. Well said Nadeem.

    I'm ill and therefore unable to go, but I believe Cider Kanka John and perhaps Tony will be going. If so, they will do a report of the match.

    Also, there is a chance that it might be on ATV. Won't know that until tomorrow morning. If it is, I'll try and put a comment here.

    Oh yes, and a good Cup Run would be great for the finances of the Club and us long suffering supporters !!

  2. Get well soon Jim

    Would be great if it was on TV
