Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Gencler qualified for the Quarter Finals of the Turkish Cup in style last night in Ankara.

Genclerbirligi 1 Adana Demirspor 0

`Cup shock specialists` Adana were brought down to earth in Ankara with an early goal by Mehmet Cakir.

Sorry to say that I have no further details of the match, but if any kanka was there then please make a comment on this post.

Some people (not me !) would argue that Gencler was drawn into the `easiest group`. However, I'm sure that Trabzon supporters would hardly agree with that statement !!

The Cup is all about taking your chances, and of course, there is always the fact that `Lady Luck` will also play a part. So, well done Gencler for topping Group B with 8 goals and zero conceded, and being the 1st team to qualify for the Quarter Finals.

Next week's trip to Trabzon will not affect Gencler's position.

Who will join them from Group B is anyones guess, with goal difference likely to play a part between Adana, Trabzon and Manisa.

Today it is all eyes on Group A and the ANKARAGUCU v Sekiztrash match which is a `Must Win Nothing Else Will Do` match for ANKARAGUCU !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
