Greeting Kankas and Kankies.

What a come-down after last weeks's encouraging performance against Gencler.

ANKARAGUCU 0 Gaziantepspor 0

To use the old cliche ..... a match of two halves or halfs !!!

Ankaragucu should have buried Antep in the first half but ........ they didn't, and when Rajnoc was sent off just minutes into the 2nd half (and quite rightly I have to admit) it was all downhill from there.

Antep dominated the 2nd half and Serkan (again !) saved out ass.

I'm just back from The Beer Bus and Platin and so I'm in no frame of mind to give a full report .......... understandably I can hear you say !!

Full report tomorrow from ..... The Terrific Two (ie, Jamie and Jimmy) .... there are sunny day kankas and there again there are rainy day kankas !!! Where is the loyalty to Ankaragucu I have to ask ??!! Question .... haven't you been to 'Hell' before and still survived ??!!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    Hello Jim - Its unreal the amount of games we draw. Thats 7 games undefeated but only one win.

    A draw isnt the worst result as it takes us 6 clear of Diyarbakir. With Ankaraspor already down and Denizli looking set to join them its looking bad for Diyarbakir. There game was abandoned to to crowd trouble with Bursa. If they are deducted points it could mean we stay up.

    What positions are Sapara and Bilal playing Jim and how is Kagan doing?


  2. Well, it looks like I didn't miss a whole lot. Maybe that is why I got ill: my body anticipated the result. Granted one point is better than none. But c'mon this is our centennial year. I thought we were at a turning point with that win against GB. Guess not.

    Oh, by the way, anyone see one of the linesman for the Diyarbakır Bursa match get nailed in the back of the head by a piece of concrete. Brought back memories of how I earned my kanka name in Kayseri--only I was lucky enough to get hit in the shoulder.

  3. This is what our brother team Bursaspor experienced this past wknd. Geçmiş olsun.

    Rough stuff in Diyarbakır.

    Damon, is this a correct translation: "Türk-Kürt kardeştir ayrım yapan kalleştir" = "If you discriminate between the two, you are a backstabber."

  5. That seems correct.

  6. Looks like a good translation to me as well.

  7. It will be interesting to await the outcome of the TFF punishment to Dee-aye-bay-kirr and Bursa ..... if any !

    Will this be a chance for them to punish Bursa by a points deduction so that Fener and Cimbom can take the Chimps League places without disturbing the status quo ?

    Or, will they be even handed and replay the match in a neutral stadium, eg, Kayseri or, dare I say it ........ Hell ??!!

    Watching with interest !!
