Genclerbirligi slip into the relegation zone

I guess I could have stayed at home to do some radio blogging of today's match but decided instead to take Little Oz Kanka to a pantomine where Smart Arse Yankee Kanka Dave gave a much better performance as Major Domo in Aladdin then Genclerbirligi have been performing as a football team in the Turkish Super Lig.

Gaziantep 2 - 0 Genclerbirligi

So all I've got is the Anadolu news agency very short report.

Let's just put it this way, five of the Gencler players (and this includes the two subs used) were given two stars out of three. The rest got just a single star. My guess is that if Anadolu gave "no stars" then quite a few of our players would have got them.

Looking at the comments on the Alkaralar fan site this was quite a boring game, spiced up only by a couple of decent shots from Kahe and Nas.

Then, just towards the end Gaziantep scored. Then a few minutes later, they scored again.

Dear oh dear. This is looking pretty scary.

There has been a thread on the Alkaralar site wishing the best to a few fans who are off to do their military service. Quite frankly, the way we are going this might be the best time to disappear from the scene for 12 months.

    Hi as a Adelaide United fan i'm glad that our Bruce Djite is getting a run with Gencer and scoring goals woohoo!.

    Our shirt is mainly red too so its good to see bruce still in red.Many Adelaide United fans are following his progress and gencer generally.

    Only got one question how the hell do you pronounce the name it sounds like a name you wouldnt want to try to pronounce pissed.


  2. He isn't scoring that many goals by the way.

    The team is pronounced Gench-lair-beer-lee

  3. Hey Adam, bear with us please.

    If you check back in this Blog you will see that we really do have a good sense of humour, but ....

    if you check the recent league tables you will see why Oz Kanka and Eski Kanka are a wee bit short of humour at the moment !!

    However, great to hear from guys Down-Under. Keep checking in with us and hopefully we can give you some good news before long, especially about our Aussies in Ankara.

    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
