Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Some of you might say ............ ‘who cares’ !!
However, just pause for a moment and think how many stadium bans we have had to endure during the past 5 years in particular.
These are usually the result of certain elements of the Ankaragucu supporters who consider some teams as ‘enemy teams’ and so they allow their feelings to override common sense.
Looking at the PTT League at the moment, and with 4 matches remaining, there are two teams who have not yet been promoted, and who fall into that category, and they are Eskisehir and Goztepe. Also, there is another in the 2nd League play-offs who is not ‘flavour of the season’, ie, Gumushane !
Therefore, if we have to face any of those three teams next season it will be the responsibility of management to impress upon the Ankaragucu supporters the importance of good behaviour to avoid such bans, especially now that TV money will be coming into the Club.
So, what is the situation at the moment ?
Istanbulspor won the White League and will join Ankaragucu.
The play-offs in the Red League are as follows –
Menemen v Gumushane
Hatay v Kastamonu
And in the White League –
Sivas BBS v Amedspor
Kocaeli Birlik v Erzurum BBS
Only one of those teams will join Ankaragucu and Istanbulspor in the PTT League.
Watch this space for the eventual winner, and whether Eskisehir and Goztepe are promoted.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
