Ankaragucu lose on and off the pitch!

Inegolspor 1-0 Ankaragucu

Today was one of the most important days in the 105 year history of Ankaragucu as the Congress took centre stage over the teams match in Inegolspor. Unfortunately there wasn't anything worth celebrating yet again for the Ankaragucu fans.

Team - Turgut Kirveli, Metin Aydin, Gurkan Alver, Aytac Oden, Onur Atasayer, Harun Aydin, Hasan Ayaroglu, Gokhan Erdogan, Orhan Evci, Umut Nayir, Levent Kale

Subs - Kaan Ates, Hasan Kaya, Ali Sinan Gayla, Ramazan Adiguzel, Teoman Erkan, Muhammed Gonulacar, Mehmet Tasci

Mehmet Yiginer was elected as President of the club for the 2nd time with him being the only candidate despite Bent Ahlat claiming he would be a candidate. The board have confirmed the club will become Ankaragucu A.S with the aim of having 110 Million income next season and 50 Million expenses. Where they think they will make that money is beyond me.

Harun believes that they are preparing to merge Osmanlispor and Ankaragucu A.S when they go to the Super Lig. We have both confirmed that it will be the end of the road for us if that happens.

As for matters on the pitch, Ankaragucu yet again failed to find the net as has all to often been the case this season. A 2nd half goal for Inegolspor gave them all 3 points and kept their promotion hopes alive. It really is embarrassing that we are talking about promotion for Inegolspor and relegation for Ankaragucu.

Next up is Basaksehir in the cup midweek at an empty Cebeci stadium due to the stadium ban. Incidentally there was more trouble at todays game. It never rains at Ankaragucu, it floods!!!


  1. Great report Nadeem, even if it was all about tales of woe !!

    Yes, so where do we go from here is the big question ? Off the pitch we now have to rely on Mehmet Yigner to come up with some positive answers and the main one has to be paying all the debts to lift the transfer ban.

    It is sad to say this but the present Ankaragucu team is going nowhere and that's no disrespect to the players efforts. The present team might just be able to reach mid-table in the 2nd Division with a bit of luck but that's about their limit.

    As for the proposed merger, we will have to await developments on that towards the end of the season. However, I notice that Osmanlispor are slipping. They were powering away in the early part of the season and then Kayseri knocked them into 2nd spot. Now Adana Demir has taken over 2nd spot and Osmanlispor are now into the play-off mix. Interesting days if you watch the PTT League closely.

    Looking forward to the irrelevant Cup match on Tuesday, I am sure it will be on one of the ATV channels, and if so, I'll put another post here in a message.

    Nadeem mentioned trouble at the Inegol match yesterday. Let's hope we don't get yet another Stadium Ban from the 'luvly chaps' in the TFF for next week's home match against Sariyer !!!

  2. Good grief is not strong enuff Burra Boy !!!

    btw, Middlesbrough to win the FA Cup yessssssssss !!!!
