MKE moves to block Gokcek takeover

Poking around on the interwebs today and I came across this article in Taraf Gazetesi concerning the latest goings on at Ankaragucu.

Seems as if the head office of MKE, the Makina Kimya Endüstrisi Kurumu, have launched a court case to have the August 30 extraordinary AGM annulled. As you all know it was at that AGM that Ahmet Gokcek became chairman.

From the petition given to the court by MKE:

"Association Chairman Cemal Aydin erased the registration of (number not given) members with MKE links. Four-hundred members were registered for the Cemal Aydin - Melih Gokcek team. The membership requests made by 146 MKE personnel were not accepted, (an action) which is against the regulations."

Who knows what might happen. My guess is that it will go the same way as what happened a few years ago when a court threw out a similiar case brought against Genclerbirligi Chairman Ilhan Cavcav who had stacked an AGM with Galatasaray supporters and made it next to impossible for the opposition to register any members. As an aside I still haven't figured out how to join Genclerbirligi.

So the shambles that is the takeover saga of Ankaragucu carries on. When the company that founded the club back in 1910 is taking you to court, you know you must have lost the track.


  1. The sad thing off the field is that all this shit is happening in our Centenery Year which will no doubt take the gloss off the celebrations next year.

    The other sad thing on the field is that the way things are going we will be involved in a relegation dog-fight in our Centenery Year.

    Is there any light at the end of the tunnel me wonders ???!!!

  2. I just hope that when this nightmare is over I will wake up and not see or hear the names Aydin or Gokcek ever again.

  3. Well, at least we picked up our first victory of the season (over Gaziantep 1-3). Anxiously awaiting Eski kanka's report :-) Bet Steven is wishing he went now.

  4. What, no funny posts along following lines...

    MKE has the guns but I Melih has the numbers?

  5. Ho ho ho ha ha ha ............ Spine once again impresses with his array of 'one liners' !

    Nice one Steve ..... keep 'em comin !
