Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

This being the 2nd of our 5 match Stadium Ban, we were unable to watch the match.   However, Maniac Kanka Harun was able to watch bits and pieces on a poor feed which he was able to find and perhaps he can add something to this report in the comments section.

ANKARAGUCU   1        Karsiyaka     0

Just as we were resigned to a stalemate, up popped Murat Yilmaz to score the winner in time added on.    Admittedly, I’ve been critical of Murat in the two matches I’ve seen him play, but in my defence, I did say that it was early days and I was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt.   He is a tall striker and he obviously must use his height to thwart opposition defenders and use it to his advantage.   Maybe that’s what he did today ??!!

So, well done Ankaragucu, and with Hatay also winning, and the others around us losing, this leaves Hatay and Ankaragucu on top of the league with 3 wins out of 3 each.

Next up is the Turkish Cup match away to Darica on Wednesday followed by an away league match next weekend against Inegol.

Here’s hoping the team can keep up the momentum and ................. consistency !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. I sense this could be the season
