Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Sad news to report ........

Galatasaray 3 ANKARAGUCU 0

Battle Damaged Kanka Damon and I watched the match in The Beer Bus and the most damning of statistics was that Franco didn't have one save to make during the entire 90 minutes !

Lot's of possession by Ankaragucu in their own half and in midfield, but .... as we all know, possession doesn't necessarily win matches !!

I'll leave the detailed report of he match to our two kanka stalwarts who were at the match (Connect Kanka Steve and Phillie Kanka Jamie). At the same time, hoping they made it back to Ankara without any 'battle scars' ?!!

Details of meeting arrangements for next weekend's home match at 'Hell' against Kayseri will be given during the next week.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    Coming home on the bus now . Utter shit game. Best part of the. Game was that the gecekondu broke down the barrier between us and the home side. Ali sami is a lousy stadium.

  2. I see that things got nasty even before kick-off. 47 Ankaragucu fans taken into custody and a whole heap of doner knives confiscated. Here is a video of people being taken off to the Cop Shop.

    I watched the game last night and i thought we were good in posesion until the final third. Vitteck has been here for about 6 games and scored one goal, not good enough. And i dont know why Sapara was taken off. How many weeks is Mehmet Cakir going to get decent chances to not even hit the target.

    We really need to strenghten in attack. Its dissapointing


  4. Nadeem,

    How much time did you and Eski spend together? You are beginning to sound identical. Guess great minds think alike. (Did I just say that?!).
