Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Something to celebrate tonight me thinks !
ANKARAGUCU 3 Kayserispor 0
I wasn't so happy yesterday when I saw that Dee-eye-bay-kir and Manisa both won, so today's result is defo a get out of jail for Ankaragucu.
More good news ...... Gencler went to Sivas and won 2-0. Thanks to our brother team and look forward to Oz Kanka's upbeat report later.
All we need to hear now is that Trabzon beat Galatasaray tonight and ..... with apologies to Bellshill Kanka Nadeem ....... that St Mirren beat Rangers in the Scottish League Cup Final !!
Probably Lemerre read Nadeem's team selection on our Blog yesterday ! However, I'll give team news and scorers tomorrow as an edit.
For now ....... let's celebrate (at last) yesssssssssss !
I'm on my balcony and just about to crack open my 2nd Efes wooooopeeee !!
All the best from a relieved Eski Kanka Jim
EDIT - 22 March
Lemerre's team selection was unsurprising and I hope Nadeem will not be too upset that Broggi was omitted !!
Geremi, Koray, Rajnoch and El-Yasa
Mehmet, Hurriyet, Sapara and Rothen
Vassel and Vittek
2nd half subs used - Cihan, Bilal and Adem
As Connect Kanka reported in the comments section, Geremi scored with a penalty on 26 mins, and Vitek scored the other two on 41 and 82 mins.
So, next weekend Ankaragucu will win 3-0 against Ankaraspor !!! Also, if the following results go to form ......
Antalya beat Manisa
Antep beat Sivas
Gencler beat Diyabakir
then ..... Ankaragucu can go EIGHT points clear of 3rd bottom Sivas and Diyabakir.
This will then give Ankaragucu the 'cushion' they need going into the last part of the season and hopefully avoid those nerve jangling last few games when points are do or die !!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
