Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Genclerbirligi was brought back down to earth after dominating the Championship League last season. There was no welcome back to the Super League for them after a poor show last Friday night in Ankara.
GENCLERBIRLIGI 0 Rizespor 1
I didn’t watch the match, but Gencler fan, Orcan, did and his description of the match from a Gencler perspective was summed up in one word, ie, .........SHIT !!
He also said that Gencler’s play was similar to that of 2 years ago when they were relegated from the Super League. So, it is to be hoped that this was just a blip in their preparation for the long season ahead.
Gencler’s cause wasn’t helped by the fact that last season’s stalwart, Metin Cetin, has been sold to Roma. Also, one of the new signings was stupidly red carded in the 1st half on Friday !!
Next up is an away match next Monday 30 August at fellow newbies to the Super League, Gazisehir, and an opportunity to get the show back on the road !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
