Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Says who ? Can you believe it comes from the dangerous Tatangalar Group of Sakaryaspor ??!!

TDN reported this morning that the Tatangalar Group want to make peace with Bursaspor supporters this weekend. This is amazing when we remember the `battle` between those 2 sets of supporters in 2003/2004 season when Bursa were relegated and it has been continuing ever since.

This gesture apparently was decided last weekend when one of the Sakaraya supporters died on his way back from the Fener match and the supporters thought it was an ideal opportunity to `kiss and make up`.

Congratulations says I for one. If you remember, I mentioned this subject a few months ago in a post following the excellent behaviour of the Besiktas supporters after they lost to Tottenham in Istanbul. Also, in another recent post I mentioned the close and historical liaison between ANKARAGUCU and Bursa supporters.

Anyway, Bursa supporters have responded positively to this `peace` initiative. Sakarya supporters have also `thrown down the gaunlet` to other groups to attend this weekend's match and they have received acceptances from Besiktas, Fener and Trabzon. No mention of ANKARAGUCU as far as I'm aware !

As most of you know, there has always been problems between the Tatangalar Group and the ANKARAGUCU groups and I can only hope that the `olive branch` will be extended here and that we can `bury the hatchet` and also `kiss and make up` !!

Message for today............ make love, not war !!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
