The Bank Asya Play-Off Final

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

The Bank Asya Play-Off Final will be staged at The 19 Mayis Stadium this Sunday KO 8pm.

Last night Ordu beat Rize and Gaziantep BBS beat Linyit to make it through to the final to see who joins Samsun and Mersin the Super League next season.

Oz Kanka and I are going to attend the final and will meet in The Beer Bus Bar from 5.30pm on Sunday.

The last time a final was staged at the 19 Mayis Stadium (a few years ago) between Sakaryaspor and Altay, Oz and I attended and witnessed a high scoring entertaining match which Sakarya won. This final between Ordu and Antep BBS has all the hallmarks of being another 'must see' match.

If you feel like joining us, please come and look forward to seeing you there.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. interesting to see who will come up, think Orduspor will do it myself. Will be a good game to go to.

    In transfer news involving Ankaragucu. Robert Vittek and Marek Sapara could be both heading to Trabzonspor after they sold Jaja Coelho, Umit Bulut, Egimen Korkmaz and Selcuk Inan. Wouldnt be dissapointed if we lost Vittek but a big blow if we loose sapara. If tabzon are serious about him then not a penny less than £6 million pounds

    Agree with Nadeem. Ordu racked-up 7 goals against Rize in the 'semi-final' and should be favourites.

    Argghhhh....... I can't believe we are even considering selling those two (especially Sapara) to Trabzon.

    Doesn't the Club management learn from their mistakes ? Remember how Augustine and Umut Bulut punished us after they had been transferred there ?

    Surely the Gokceks must realise that Sapara is the man they must build the team around ?!!

    I say again ......... argghhhhhhh !!!!

  3. Michael Klukowski has signed for Manisaspor. Agree with Jim, It doesnt say weather the management will accept or decline the bids.

    Hopefully we wont do what Gencler are doing and just sell our best players, although i wouldnt be dissapointed if Vittek went

  4. representatives from Trabzonspor and Ankaragucu to meet this weekend to discuss the transfer of Vittek and Sapara to Trabzon

  5. anti x are reporting we have bid for Vitoria Guimaress duo Rui Miguel and Joao Paulo Andrade.

    Miguel is a 27 year old attacking midfielder, while Paulo Andrade is a 29 year old defensive midfielder who has also played with Porto and Le Mans.

    Monday 30 May -

    Welcome to the Super League Orduspor.

    They left it late last night to win 1-0 and make their return to the Super League after an absence of 20 'something' years.

    The match was watched by Oz Kanka, Little Oz Kanka, Maniac Kanka, Battle Damaged Kanka and yours truly.
