Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

As I have mentioned several times recently in match posts, the stars of the team on the run-in to the end of the season were the Back 5.

So, it was unsurprising to learn this morning that Ilkem is on Manisaspor's 'wish-list'.

They have sold Ferhat Oztorun to Trabzon and are looking for a replacement.

Ilkem and 3 other players from Sivas, Bursa and Konya are in their frame.

Let's hope they take the 'preferred option' and go for Cihan of Konya !

I am also hoping that Hikmet Karaman has been given the power of saying …... NO ! ….. to transfers OUT, or …........ am I dreaming again ?!

I have said before during matches that Ilkem reminds me of the character of a Scottish Terrier, ie, he never knows when to quit. Therefore, this is the type of player we need to keep.

Let's say ….. altogether now …......... Inshallah !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Eski Kanka's 'Kiss of Death' strikes again !!

    Kaleci Kanka Tansu reported this morning (9 June) that Ankaragucu full-back El-Yasa has been transferred to Malaga of Spain.

    My reaction was ..... boo hoo hoo (to put it mildly !!).

    However, on the upside, Santos, Serkan, Ilkem and Boozy are still in situ, or ......... shouldn't I have said that ??!!

    Anyway, good luck to El-Yasa who was a good servant to the Club in his time here.
