Gencler go down in who cares match

Genclerbirligi 0 - 2 Antalyaspor

Little to play for Saturday night as both Gencler and Antalya have no chance of being relegated and neither any chance of making it high enough for a place in Europe next season.

I guess it was for this reason that Little Oz Kanka and myself were the only Kankas to show up at the Beer Bus. Luckily for us a bunch of Alkaralar showed up and so we all enjoyed a few Efes in the lovely spring weather. Moved off to discover that all the roads were closed because Ankara Mayor had put on a massive bread and circuses act in downtown Kizilay as a way to bribe voters celebrate Chrildren's Day.

So we caught the metro to near the ground and got in just after kick-off.

Gencler were clearly the better team and if luck had fallen differently we could have had a couple before the break. With nothing at stake the atmosphere was fun even if Gencler weren't scoring. Second half and Antalya picked up a bit. Then towards the end Antalya scored. I have no idea what happened as I was opening a yogurt for Little Oz Kanka at the time. All I can remember is Arda behind us saying somthing like "Aman, dikkat" and then it was goal.

The second and final goal was scored when Gencler were trying to get the equaliser. Can't really blame anyone there.

So that was that. No real hassles.


  1. As Battle Damaged Kanka Damon commented last night while we were supporting Bursa in the Beer Bus ........

    'Oz Kanka's reports are getting shorter and shorter' !!

    I wonder if it's a case of 'NFI' or just end of season writer's cramp ??!!
