Greeting Kankas and Kankies (from Side, Antalya).

Not much I can say about yesterday's match in view of the fact that I was in the Beach Bar of the Papillon Hotel half pissed !

However, those brave souls, Maniac Kanka and Yankee Kanka went to Konya by Anti-X bus and filled me in with a few details by regular text messages.


Konya opened the scoring in the 1st half and the equaliser came soon after by Gokhan. Then almost on the half time whistle Burak scored an own-goal. Grrrrrrrrr.

Into the 2nd half and Jaba tied things up with a goal 15 minutes from the end. Maniac Kanka called me and lottsa singing in the background. Great ..... the winner is coming me thinks ! Wrong ..... again !

Effin Konya grab the winner on the full time whistle. Shit !!

However, Maniac Kanka's words were upbeat. Ankaragucu played well and there is cause for some optimism for the long season ahead.

Next up is Trabzon on Friday night and that will surely test Maniac's words !

There is a possibility that I'll be back Friday night but not sure yet. If so, I'll be late and therefore possibly heading to The Chopin to watch it.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

PS...... time to dive back into the Pool and then a quick dip in the sea before Happy Hour and ...... lottsa Efes yesssssssss.
