Ankaragucu complete 2 more signings!

A busy week for the club came to an end today as Ankaragucu completed the signings of Sedat Bayrak and Timur Kosovali ahead of the transfer deadline. Going back 4 weeks ago i don't think any Ankaragucu fan could have imagined us signing 13 new players and being considered as title contenders. For that we have to thank President Mehmet Yiginer for all his hard work and efforts. He may be a close friend of Melih Gokcek, but he has stepped up to the table and delivered on the promised he made.

Unfortunately the support from the fans to date has been very disappointing in terms of season ticket sales. Only 800 have been sold to date, which is nothing short of embarrassing for a club from the capital city of 4 million people. No one can question our fans loyalty vocally and when you look back to the Dirilis campaign 2 years ago we were averaging crowds of over 15,000. You can't keep demanding for the management team to support the club while not backing your team financially yourself unless you have financial issues of course.

Anyway back to todays signings, Sedat Bayrak is a 34 year old central defender who has signed from Genclegrbirligi. He previously played over 50 games for Ankaragucu between 2005-2007. Timur Kosovali is a much travelled striker who is 24 years old and has an excellent goalscoring record for Bandirmaspor and Goztepe at lower league level. He has singed from Sanliurfaspor after failing to break into their first team.

As you can see above, both players showed off the clubs new strips today which can be purchased at the Tandogan store.

The club has now completed all its transfer business which you can view here giving you all the information on who has signed for the club and also left over the summer. The link also gives you the Ankaragucu squad information.

Now its up to the players to go and win promotion!

    Nadem Thanks for your efforts .
    Its really a pleasure for me to read your and Jim's reviews and critics.
    Now it is a very hard work for the manager to combine the old and new players and create one team.? Sure It will take some time and We have to be a little patient .

  3. well done Nadeem !

  4. Yes, of course you are right Volkan. Patience is a virtue and we Ankaragucu supporters have that in abundance !!!

    I'm sure the Coach will be able to field his strongest team from the squad after working with them this week.

    I'm full of optimism for Sunday !!!!
