Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Apologies for the lack of news to all our regular readers, but there has been no good news to report.  It's all doom and gloom for Ankaragucu.

Genclerbirligi has been busy in the transfer market from what I've noticed and I think they are in Belgium and Holland at the moment.   Oz Kanka and Spine should be able to update us on that.

The much delayed Ankaragucu congress is scheduled for tomorrow ...... that is, if it is not postponed again !

So, as far as we know, Ankaragucu will be playing in the Bank Asya League which kicks off on 18 August.  As for the name which they will be playing under ........... that is still unknown.   So, the answer is ...... keep watching this space.

For Dublin Neil .......... I will be in Bodrum (Gumbet) from 6 to 11 August.   If you will be there or thereabouts then please let me know and we can have a long overdue get-together.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Correction ....... the Ankaragucu Congress is scheduled for Saturday 28 July, but .... I'm not holding my breath. We have long lost our ability to hope for good news !!

    Have noted your dates Jim, we'll wait and see how things pan out.
    Looks like my knowledge of Turkish geography will improve further this season on account of Ankaragucu's participation in the Bank Asya!

    Dublin Neil.

  3. saturday is a huge day for the club. news tonight is that we drew 0-0 in a friendly with 1461 trabzon. Thats where the good news ends.

    We could either face starting the season with a 12 point deduction or be playing no football at all next season if we dont pay uefa 700k. Also it looks like mehmet ural will not run for president and someone else will.

    we need a miracle on saturday or the club could close :-(
