Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

I'm searching for adjectives to describe today's performance ...... and I can only think of ONE at the moment in a clouded Efes haze .........


Be sure that there will be more tomorra after I have consulted my dictionary !!

Kasimpasa (bottom of the league) 2 ANKARAGUCU 1

I want to use a swearie word, but Damon told me to desist, but ........ I can't control myself .....

FUCK !!!!

More doom and gloom news tomorra when I have calmed down !

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    "Can we honestly say that it would be a major surprise if Ankaragucu lost to Kasimpasa next time out, after the way the season has gone so far?
    Hopefully that wont happen but you take my point guys."

    Not pleased to be reminding you of last week's comment.VERY frustrating the total lack of consistency.There is obviously plenty of ability in the team but whats lacking is spirit and CHARACTER.

  2. They have a saying in Turkish, Neil, that you may be familiar with:

    Balık baştan kokuyor (The fish stinks from the head down).

    You make a good point, yet at the same time it is hard to blame the team for a lack of character when their overlords are almost completely devoid of it.

  4. to be fair, we might be seeing a new kasimpasa team. In a week's time, they tripled their wins for this season. We'll have to wait and see how Agücü fairs in the derby next week.

  5. Jeremy,

    You, too, make an excellent point, one we were actually talking about at the bar during the match. However, while it is true that Kasimpasa's performance might have exceeded what they were formerly capable of, our own performance was nothing short of, well, as Eski Kanka Jim said, "pathetic."

    In the first half both teams looked terrible. By the second half, they had lifted their game. We hadn't. Which brings us back to Neil's comment.

    yeah Battle Damaged I've heard that phrase before.Seems like it could have been invented to describe Ankaragucu!I'll say one thing for them though.They are the hardest team to predict on the football coupon every week!
