Ankaragucu 3-1 Etimesgut!

Ankaragucu booked their place in the TSYD Ankara mini cup final with a good 3-1 win over Etimesgut. Earlier in the day the Ankaragucu management announced that the transfer ban has been lifted and all new signings have signed their contracts.

Team - Emrah Tuncal, Orhan Evci, Alihan Kubalas, Adem Saglam, Onur Atasayer, Harun Aydin, Muhammed Gonulacar, Erhan Senturk, Emre Sahin, Omer Bozan, Enes Kubat,

Subs - Emre Koyuncu, Murat Yilmaz, Metin Aydin, Hasan Kaya, Ahmet Yazar, Omer Bayramoglu, Ahmet Can, Ali Sinan, Mustafa Ozturk, Mehmet Tasci

A good crowd turned up for the match with over 10,000 in attendance, I must add the Kankas were late attending the stadium as they had a bit to much to drink according to reports, tut tut.

Ankaragucu took the lead midway through the half with Erhan Senturk opening the scoring, the attacking midfielder looks like he is going to be a key player for the team this season. The score stayed that way until after the break.

Etimesgut got back on level terms after they were awarded a penalty which was converted much to the delight of their 10 fans in the away end.

Ankaragucu were quickly back in front after Enes Kubat got on the end of a cross into the box to make it 2-1. The home side put the game to bed with a well worked goal and Onur Atasayer putting the ball into the back of the net with a nice finish.

The final will be played tomorrow night at 8pm Turkish time at the 19 Mayis stadium where Polatli Bugsasspor will be the opponents. The game will also be shown live on TRT much to my delight.

  1. Yes, tut tut tut. Late into the Stadium is true enough, however, in our defence we were being hosted by The Sportwriters of Ankara in their garden restaurant and it would have been churlish to refuse their hospitality !!!!

    Incidentally, we have been invited back there again tonight, but I’ll do my best to drag the kankas out before KO time !!!

    As for yesterday’s matches, well, what a surprise to hear that Bugsas had disposed of Hacettepe. I hope Ismet Bey had a spy at that match !

    Well done …………. in the end Ankaragucu, but you did give us a few heart stopping moments until that 3rd goal went in.

    I could see some positives from the new players. Special mention for my man of the match No10 Omer. He is the type of player who will win matches this season with his clever touches, his vision and his all round effort. Other players who took my eye were Nos 5 (solid at the back), 71 (fiery character !), 20 (hard worker), 3 (put himself about a bit) and last season’s player Harun.

    Only one criticism and that is the tall No9 who came on in the 2nd half and did an excellent impersonation of Teoman, ie, running around like a headless chicken and contributing little !!!

    Thanks for the report Nadeem and hopefully I’ll be able to do the one tonight when we win the Cup yesssssssssssss !!!!
