Turkish Cup - Ankaragucu aren't dead yet

Further to Eski Kanka Jim's dismay over Ankaragucu's chances in the Turkish Cup I'm pleased to report that Jim is wrong on this one. In fact Ankaragucu have a very good chance of going through to the next round, ahead of Fenerbahce.

The table is like this (sort of, I can't figure out how to get everything to line up)

--------------P W D L GF GA GD Pts
Gaziantep 4 3 1 0 6 1 5 10
Ankaragucu 3 1 1 1 7 7 0 4
Fener 3 1 1 1 3 4 -1 4
Erciyes 3 0 2 1 1 3 -2 2
Tarsus 3 0 1 2 4 6 -2 1

The Anatolia news agency ran a story today noting that it is goal difference and not the result of individual games against each other that determines who goes through. So with Gaziantep having wrapped up top spot there is one game left for the rest to go for the second position which will probably result in a next round match against Galatasaray.

All Ankaragucu have to do is win against Erciyes away tomorrow and hope that Fener don't beat up little Tarsus by too many. Despite Jim's famous head for figures when it comes down to counting outs in darts he obviously wasn't listening the "calculating averages" lesson.

  1. Mmmmmmm errrrrrrrmmmmm Ok then, I thought the only figures which were important were on fashion TV, but mmmmm wrong again.
    OK, thanks Oz Kanka and great to hear you sounding so optimistic (for a change) !!!
    However, excuse me if I remain downbeat. I've had too many disappointments recently !!!
    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
