Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

It’s doom and gloom time again in Ankara !

Battle Damaged Kanka Damon will report on the match which he attended in Kayseri yesterday, but I guess he is still recovering from his arduous journey so it may hit the Blog later today.

Kayserispor 2 ANKARAGUCU 0

The headline is from The Hurriyet, and I don’t think they mean that Ankaragucu should be at the top of the league either !!!

Following on from 3 wins on the trot in February, we have had 3 defeats on the trot with Zero goals scored in March. Relegation statistics some may say ?!

There were no favours from the other teams in the relegation zone yesterday. Kocaeli, Antalya and Istanbul BBS all won which puts further pressure on an already beleaguered Ankaragucu.

In 2 weeks time it really is the crunch match (World Cup action next weekend) with 2nd bottom Kocaeli coming to Ankara to play 3rd bottom Ankaragucu with only one point separating them.

Notwithstanding Kocaeli’s league position, they have one of the top goal scorers in the League in Taner, but hopefully Santos will be returning after suspension to keep him on a leash !

I’m not talking relegation ….. yet. However, if Ankaragucu don’t beat Kocaeli in two weeks time it really will be on the cards – no question about it !

Standby for match report from Battle Damaged which is sure to contain more doom and gloom.

All the best from downbeat Eski Kanka Jim
