GENCLERBIRLIGI - ALMOST, BUT .......NOT QUITE !!




Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

This headline gives me another opportunity to use my favourite idiom .......

Almost means .............. not quite.     Not quite means ........... not right.       Not right means .........wrong.       And wrong means ....... the opportunity to start again and get it right  !!!

That chance may come next Friday when Gencler travel to Istan....spit.....bul to take on 4th placed Beshiktrash, and if they play like they did yesterday, there is every reason to believe that they might be successful.

Yesterday, they were on their way to causing an upset, but .........ALMOST  !!

GENCLERBIRLIGI        2                  Sivasspor           2

Team – Ertac, Baiano, Bjarsmyr, Toure, Halil, Yasin, Sessegnon, Candeias, Seuntjens, Sefa and Stancu

Substitutes – Berat, Ayite and Erdem

Kone put Sivas ahead in the 24th minute and that is the way it stayed until Gencler let-rip with two quick-fire goals on the 56th and 59th minutes mark through Stancu and Ayite.

League leader Sivas was heading for only their 3rd defeat of the season before Yatabare equalised 6 minutes into time-added-on.

It is understandable how the Gencler players must have felt.   After all, didn’t we see Ankaragucu do something similar to Galata.....spit.....saray and Antalya in the past 2 weeks  and watch their players rolling around on the turf crying their eyes out  ??!!

Gencler is still only 4 points above the relegation zone, so no time to be complacent.

With Beshiktrash still drying their eyes after losing to Fener last night, this is a golden opportunity to heap more misery on an Istan......spit......bul team yessssssssssss !!

Bring it on.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
