Ankaragucu 0-1 Golbasispor match report!

For the second week running Ankaragucu have managed to disgrace the name of the club and what it actually means to play for this club. After the humiliating 4-1 defeat at Nazilli we were looking for a reaction from the players in what was a 6 pointer against relegation rivals Golbasispor. And react they did, by finishing the game with 9 men and losing 1-0.

Team - Gokhan Akkan, Metin Aydin, Gurkan Alver, Aytac Oden, Onur Atasayer, Harun Aydin, Serhat Gulpinar, Mehmet Erdem, Levent Kale, Teoman Erkan, Umut Nayir

Subs - Turgut Kirvelli, Volkan Geyik, Ali Sinan Gayla, Hasan Ayaroglu, Ramazan Adiguzel, Batuhan Gulcan, Gokhan Erdogan

The match was played behind closed doors after the Turkish FA decided to fine Ankaragucu and hand a 1 match stadium ban for swearing. Yeah thats right swearing, one of their oldest clubs who has been pleading for their help over the last couple of months without any answer, and this is what it comes to.

Ankaragucu looked went close with a couple of attacks before it all went wrong. Both Metin Aydin and Harun Aydin were sent of for two bookable offences. This will be the 3rd suspension already this season for Harun who has let his team mates down.

Ankaragucu were looking for the winning goal until the second sending off, it looked like they were going to hang on for a point until a last minute goal from Bulent Kocabey gave the visitors all 3 points. Ankaragucu now are only 3 points outside the relegation zone. With the potential 6 point deduction due to missed payments to Fifa it would leave the club bottom of the league.

A cup match with Sivas 4 Eylul on Thursday is up next as the league closes for the winter break. The next league match is at home to Kahramanmarasspor on January 18th. Another relegation match which will almost certainly see Ankaragucu go into that match without Gokhan Akkan, Umut Nayir and Onur Atasayer.


  1. Whatever way you look at it ............ it's all doom and gloom, and not even a course of Eski Kanka's Optimism Pills can hide it or correct it !

    Even if Umut and Gokhan don't leave the Club in January, there is still not much hope of avoiding a relegation battle. From the position we are in today, the best Ankaragucu can hope for is to be in the Play-Offs to stay in the 2nd League !!!

    As for Thursday's match, I was going to wheel and deal tomorra to get the afternoon off work, but after today's result I have to ask myself the question with hand on heart ......... 'is it worth the effort' ?! The answer is a no-no !

    We are playing a 3rd Division team on Thursday, but I just don't want to be there if there is going to be another humiliation ! Prove me wrong Ankaragucu and make me regret my decision !

    The team is certainly putting the supporters loyalty to the limit, and it will be interesting to see what the attendance will be for the 1st home match in the 2nd half of the League in January.

    I wonder if it will be a ............ Happy New Year for Ankaragucu ???!!!

    In fact the game is over.
    I do believe that there will be no Ankaragucu by the end of 2015..
    CA and the other SOB really Fu... the Club..

  3. I agree with Volkan, I don't think there will be an Ankaragücü much longer. Metin Aykuz said Melih Gokcek can either save the club or kill the club and its up to him. We all know Gokcek isn't a man of honour and will not do anything to help

  4. Sad to hear this. Better luck for 2015 I hope.

    Yes very sad to hear even stalwarts such as you guys suggesting such a pessimistic outlook.The results have gone from bad to worse this season.Maybe the winter break affords the team one last chance to sort themselves out and come back for the second half of the season and give it a lash?

    Dublin Neil.

  6. Good to hear from you Neil. btw, it's amazing that you can actually find Eski Kanka's Optimism Pills in Dublin !!!
