Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

On the face of it, a pretty depressing result against the bottom team in the league.....

ANKARAGUCU 2 Kasimpasa 2

and `depressing` is how it must have felt to the kankas in the Stadium at half time with ANKARAGUCU facing a mountain of depression and 0-2 down. Battle Damaged Kanka, Rip-Off Kanka, Mountaineering Kanka and Kankie were there, with a few other loyal souls. (Battle Damaged will give a full match report which will be added as an EDIT tomorrow).

However, it was not all doom and gloom with the 2nd half being ignited with 2 ANKARAGUCU goals from Battle Damaged Kanka's `Man of the Match`, Murat Erdogan, and he thinks it was Jaba who scored the 2nd (to be confirmed tomorrow).

Under normal circumstances, fighting back from 0-2 down would be hailed as an excellent result and I have to admit that my first reaction was relief that we didn't lose our undefeated home record. On reflection though, and in hindsight, it has to be said that it was 2 points lost for ANKARAGUCU and yet another step backwards in the UEFA Cup qualification scramble !

Meeting up in the Cappadokia post-match was Battle Damaged, Rip-Off, Maniac, Yankee and Eski Kankas and it was not a celebration meeting tonight ! All eyes were on next week's match against the hated Sekiztrash and the hope that we can raise our game and play for 90 minutes, and not for the 15 minutes in today's match which will be reported by Battle Damaged Kanka tomorrow !!!

Watch this space for his report. In the meantime, all the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    I was there. It was totally depressing. Even the draw left a bad taste in my mouth. We should have won 5-0. Murat was all-world for 15 minutes. Bebbe and ElYasa stunk. I am starting to think that Bebbe is overrated. Only fancy shit, no action!!! I'll keep my head up, but only just!
