Our blog in the Turkish press

1. The English in gecekondu

Besim Guctenkorkmaz from Sabah has a go at trying to explain who we are. He fails mainly.

2. Scottish Jim, a total Ankaragucu fanatic

Ovgu Dogan from Sabah interviews our very own Sir Eski Kanka.

3. Some publicity for us and "The Curse" Monday, June 11, 2007
Ozgur Korkmaz from the Turkish Daily News quotes us in a story about Genclerbirligi Chairman Ilhan Cavav.

4. On the Internet today , July 02, 2007

Now for an interview on the NTVSpor website by Tolga Ozek in which we were not only quoted properly but also one which got us a damn lot of hits on the blog.

5. Radikal newspaper gives us a run, December 30, 2008

Tanil Bora surprised us with this one where he reports on some foreign students supporting Eskisehir and also on us "orta yaşlı" Gencler supporters.


  1. The bottom line is .... exposure for Ankaragucu and Genclerbirligi.

    The Round Ball in Ankara is a site where footie fanatiks of both teams (and neutrals) can visit and understand what is going on in both clubs from OUR perspective .... in English.

    I am personally very pleased that this Blog has grown in esteem after such modest beginnings. Long may it continue I say !

  2. Enjoyed stumbling across your great football blog guys
