Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

The news which I have been expecting arrived today in The Hurriyet. It is also up on the internet from Zaman newspaper.

A new (well, not young) goalkeeper is on the way in to replace Serkan who must surely be on his way to Ankaraspor now before the scheduled January move.

He is 31 year old Steve Philips (another Ingallishman !!) from Bristol City who previously played for Bristol Rovers.

It seems that Ankaragucu is building up their catchment of Ingallish players in a similar way to Gencler last season with their Aussie contingent !!

Also, the news that Bellshill Kanka Nadeem has been waiting for ...... Ghana and Spanish Youth International Godwin Antwi is on his way in too.

Not sure when they will actually arrive here for medicals, etc, but I will keep you informed when they are paraded to the press.

Another piece of news from Hurriyet this morning ........ surprise surprise, Ceyhun made it into their Team of the Weekend. If he keeps these performances up for the next few weeks we will have Fener back knocking on the door !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

  2. Dear Mr/Ms Anonymous, many thanks for picking up on my deliberate mistook .... of course, I should have said .........

    good stuff that antwi has signed jim. Dnt have a clue about steve phillips though lol. ankara are going english haha


  4. From our Man on the Terraces in Bristol, God's own city:

    "Flapper Phillips has been at Rovers for about three years now. Not as good as he thinks he is - which is the main reason he got shipped out. Has done a go at the Mem but that's probably his level. Got the nickname for weakness on crossnesses and tendency to shout at his own defenders...."

    And no, I don't know what crossnesses are either.

  5. and this just in:

    Bristol Evening Post Reports Flapper Phillips Deal Collapses

  6. After Spine's expert analysis of this goalkeeper I say ship him off to Man Shitty. They seem to be buying everyone and anyone !

    So ...... I wonder who will be between the sticks on Saturday ? I'm betting Zafer, but I'm NOT taking bets !!

    i hope phillips doesnt sign, sounds rubbish. I think Serkan will start although i think he was at fault for Mendozas goal at the weekend.

    May be the safer option to play Zafer though lol
