Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Well, it looks like it has eventually happened !

Hurriyet reported this morning that Cemal Aydin has resigned, and along with him, Coach Unal Karaman.

Deputy Chairman, Serdar Ozersin, will take control of the Club until a permanent Chairman has been elected.

So, the power of the Tribunes seem to have won the day and there will be much celebrating in Ankara tonight, especially in The Lacivert !

As for the position of Coach, two names have been muted, ie, Ex Gencler Coach Mesut Bakkal and the other, Ziya Dogan.

I have to admit that I have never joined the Cemal Aydin 'Hate Club' because I was waiting and 'hoping' that a rich benefactor would appear from Russia, Africa or the USA to take control and put Ankaragucu 'up there' in the same way as Chelsea and Man City were turned around. However, I wasn't a member of the 'Love Club' either, especially after he sold some of our star players over the past few years.

I await more details from Oz Kanka, our Webmaster, before commenting further.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Nothing to add. You seem to have got all the details I have seen.

  2. It was reported in The Hurriyet this morning (Friday 12 December) that Mesut Bakkal (ex-Gencler) will be the new Team Coach of Ankaragucu.

    He will sign for the Club on Monday.

    So, we travel to play Besiktas tomorrow Coach-less, but .... putting on an Ankaragucu top means you play with pride.

    Hope I don't live to regret those words !!
