GENCLERBIRLIGI .........Oooooops .........TILT !!!

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

During my absence in Scotland, it has been all downhill for Genclerbirligi.   However, now that I’m back in Buyuk Baskent it will be all the motivation that Gencler needs to ‘turn the corner and reassert themselves as Championship Champions contenders !

Gencler suffered yet another loss in Eskisehir last Saturday going down to Ess-Ess 3-2 which allowed title challengers Denizlispor to leapfrog Gencler and take over top spot in the League.

Denizli could only draw away to Hatay but it was enough to move 2 points clear of Gencler.   However, the vultures are circling with Osmanlispor and Umraniye only 3 and 4 points respectively behind Gencler.

With Ankaragucu languishing in 3rd bottom place in the Super League, the prospect of an Ankara Derby is back on the menu as Gencler throw away their early season dominance of the Championship.     Of course, it’s not a done-deal, but both Ankaragucu and Gencler need to start putting a run of wins in place to make that Ankara Derby in the Super League and not in the Championship !!!

The acid test for Gencler comes next Saturday when they take on ‘that other team’ from near Ankara called Osman....spit....lispor !

C’mon Gencler, time to get the show back on the road !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. I see that Gencler will now play at the Eryaman Stadium. Any news on what is happening at the 19 Mayis site?

  2. As far as I'm aware, it is now demolished and the new stadium is in the planning stage. When it will be ready is anyone's guess !!!

    The buzz is that it will be 45,000 capacity.

    Watching and listening to others, the general feeling is that the supporters are happy with Eryaman. However, ever the sceptic, I just wonder how long it will be before Metro trains are trashed and graffiti appears in Batikent and Eryaman by 'you know who' !!!

    I'll keep you informed as and when I hear more news.
