Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

From the pages of The Hurriyet this morning ............

Ankaragucu will be in their normal camp in Belek, Antalya until 12 January.

Two 'friendly' matches have been lined-up and one of them in particular will be of interest to Flying Dutchman Kanka Carlo !

9 January - Bochum of Germany

11 January - AZ Alkmaar of Holland

On their return to Ankara they will then face Buca on 15/16 January in Ankara in the crucial Cup match which will no doubt decide which of them will top the group.

In other news, Umit Ozat is quoted as saying that he is bringing in 2 new players, but the names haven't been released yet. I'm sure that Nadeem will be watching this news and will be first to report it !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Ok, agenda out. I'll have to keep that wknd. free.

    And, yes, I don't know how he does it, but Nadeem seems to know of these things before just about anyone else.

    Dublin Neil.

  3. Whaaaaaat ?? I don't believe it ! Even allowing for the fact that I'm still in an Efes Mist ........ Hibs and Rangers nivvvirrrr .... neh ... nivvvirrrr .... lose at home at the Nerday Derby !!!

    just back from the rangers celtic game, celtic deserved there win but we were shocking,

    anyway hope these two players are good, ill try find out

    ludovic obraniak is one that is linked, ex team mate of vitteck at lille and fench under 21 international, hes a winger. good player


  6. Nadeem always comes through.

  7. Agree with BD's last comment !

    This is good news if it happens. We have sorely missed a fast winger who can cross the ball in for the likes of Vittek and Sestak.

    It reminds me of the 'good olde days' when Hakan Keles used to whizz down the wing and send in those inviting balls for Augustine and Kennedy to put away.

    More of that pleeeeezzzzzz !

    Guys, My mate Gabe in London says his beloved Bristol City are looking at Billy Mehmet. How do we rate him? Can the Wurzels have him?


  9. Anonymous2:03 pm

    Rangers have been linked with him as well along with hearts and aberdeen, i hope we dont sign him. Dont rate him, st mirren is his level


  10. He's not good enough to play for Hibs either !!!

    Comments on that statement NOT invited !!!

    ankaragucu have been today linked with Pawel Grockici a 22 year old polish international, kayserispor and sivas also want him.

    trabzonspor are interested in mehmet cakir and galatasaray want ugur ucar


  12. Anonymous9:28 pm

    todays transfer news, Mehmet Cakir has signed for Trabzonspor along with two polish players. Kazim Richards has signed for Galatasaray and Fenrbahce want Emmanuele Emunike form Karabuk.

    Besiktas want Marek Sapara and will use Yusuf Simsek as part of a swap deal


  13. This is the news we didn't want to hear !!

    First of all we must not let Sapara go, and secondly, we don't want a 'has been' like Simsek at the Club !

    I wonder if we can assume that Sapara will put money issues aside and stay with his two compatriots ??!!

    C'mon Nadeem ..... pleeezzzz give us some good news !!!

  14. jaroslav jerny is the first transfer of the season break who is from czech rep.. 31 years old,was playing for slavia prag as a team captain and he is a midfielder..

  15. Anonymous2:20 pm

    just saw that Harun, no idea if he is any good or not. We are also in for Ishak Dogan a young Turkish player playingin Germany


  16. Hmmmmm .... not much detail available about Jaroslav Cerny, except that he's an attacking midfield player and he's been capped a few times for the Czech Republic.

    I'm just praying that he's not being brought in to replace Sapara !!!

  17. Doesn't sound like it, Jim. Sounds like he is coming in to bolster the ranks.

    We also apparently, tentatively picked up a 19 yr. old Greek left-back by the name of Chousein Konstantinos. Ümit will decide shortly whether Doğan and Konstantinos will stick around or not.

    To find out more about Cerny, check out today's copy of Hürriyet (the Ankara insert).
