Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

With International footie dominating the scene for the past week and this week, the Ankara ‘Big 2’ decided to play a ‘friendly’ yesterday.

After Gencler’s excellent opening 4 league matches, they were given a reality check yesterday by the ‘new’ Ankaragucu.

ANKARAGUCU    4          Genclerbirligi     0

The match was played at the Ilhan Cavcav Training Arena in Bestepe, Ankara.

Ilhan Parlak opened the scoring in the 1st half.   However, Ankaragucu had to wait until 10 minutes before the end to make the match safe when Kehinde scored Nadeem’s words ......... a belter !

2  late goals followed near the end from Erdem Sen and Kenan.

The result must have put a smile on the face of Ismail Bey as he continues to ease all the new signing into the team.

Gencler Coach, Erkan Sozeri, will have received a warning that there is still a long way to go before they can be sure of returning to the Super League at the first time of asking.

League action resumes on Saturday when Ankaragucu will be at home in ‘The Stadium from Hell’ against last season’s Turkish Cup Winners Akhisar.

More of the same please Ankaragucu !!

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. It will be good for the Gencler boys to be brought down to earth after such a loss. Time now to refocus on the league.

  2. The scoreline was a bit harsh on Gencler who looked like they were coming back into the game until 3 second half goals from Ankaragucu.

    Big Kehindes goal was a cracker
