Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Genclerbirligi continue to shoot themselves in the foot with yet another defeat after the winter break.

Yesterday they lost 0-2 to that other team near Ankara called Osman....spit.....lispor in the Eryaman Stadium.

Gencler now drop one place to 3rd behind Osmanli on goal difference.

Denizlispor still lead the way at the top 2 points ahead of Gencler and Osmanli, but they will be at home against Altinordu today and could move 5 points clear if they win.    I’ll put the result here in the comments section.

Umraniye and Hatay are closing in on Gencler and they both play today and I’ll also put their results here in the comments section later.

Gencler can play their ‘get out of jail card’ next weekend when they travel to 2nd bottom club Elazig.   However, as I’ve said many times on this Blog, there are no easy games in this league.   Gencler will therefore need to move up a gear and bring all 3 points back to Ankara.  

It is always difficult to end a run of defeats when confidence is low, but it must be done next week otherwise Gencler will be sucked into the chasing pack and the ensuing ‘dog fight’ !

Watch this space as the story unfolds.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Denizlispor beat Altinordu 1-0 tonight and go 5 points clear at the top.

    The other 2 matches I mentioned will be played tomorrow night (Monday).

  2. Gazi 2 ...... Hatay 0
    Giresun 1 ........ Umraniye 1

    The point moves Umraniye only 3 points behind Gencler.

    The fight is now on to claim 2nd top spot in the League between, Gencler and Umraniye.
