Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

It's that time of the year !

We are down to the last 4 matches of the season and most of the big issues have yet to be decided.

So, for the next few weeks until they are resolved, we will have all the matches kicking off at the same time.

It starts this weekend, with the exception of the Kayseri v Antep match which kicks off on Sunday.

So, apart from that match, all the other matches will KO at 7pm on Saturday 9 May.

This throws up another problem for TV viewers. For those of us who want to watch the Galatasaray v Ankaragucu match (to be played in Kayseri) there may be others who want to watch Fener v Denizli and Sivas v Istanbul BBS.

Battle Damaged Kanka and I will therefore try to ascertain which match will be the preferred choice of The Chopin. My guess is that they will have all 3 on the different screens.

Watch this space for more.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Try and find out as soon as possible so I can send out an e-mail concerning where we are all meeting.

  2. Battle Damaged Kanka has been assigned to this mission (NOT impossible).

    I am confident that he will give us some good news so that we can reserve tables and watch it together.

    Waiting .............


    thank you Kanka jim,we love you!!

    We will be singing and dancing in The Chopin Bar tomorrow night when we stuff Galata...spit...saray yessssssssss !!!

    Ankarrrraaaaagoooooojoooo yesssssss !!!

  5. I see we are getting lots of hits in the last couple of days www.gecekondu.org

    I've signed up to their forum but have to wait until they give permission to see what they are talking about.

    The one hassle might be that they asked for my TC Kimlik numarası. I'm not a Turk and so I don't have one.

    So, if any Gecekondu people read this please tell the admin people at gecekondu.org to give permission to Oz Kanka to join.
