Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Out with the old, and in with the new ..........on Friday !!
I think it goes without saying that we will all be relieved to see the back of 2020 and will be hoping for a happier 2021.
There were lots of downers in 2020, and apart from the Pandemic, the one which we found most difficult to bear was the loss of one of our kankas – Little Oz Kanka Matthew.
Also, Battle Damaged Kanka, Damon, lost his father-in-law with whom he shared a close relationship.
Not having supporters in the Stadium for most of the year was also keenly felt and the kankas have been unable to socialise together since March.
Some of us only managed 2 visits to The Eryaman Stadium early in the year to see Ankaragucu’s win against Fener.....spit.....bahce and the loss to Sivas.
On the upside, at least Ankaragucu was spared relegation when they finished bottom of the league and relegation was suspended for this season because of the Pandemic.
Also, Damon and I managed a visit to Scotland in January/February where we saw The Mighty Hibernian win 1 match and draw 2 others !!
So to 2021, and to hopefully see the defeat of the Pandemic. As I write this, we are still in various lockdown situations which will hopefully be eased during 2021. However, when we will be able to visit the Stadium is still a big question mark !!
So, to our regular readers, kankas near and far, and your families, I wish you all a Happy New Year 2021 and look forward to the day when we can meet socially and enjoy watching football together again.
In the meantime, we must continue to meet here on this site and on our Whatsapp Group site.
All the very best from Eski Kanka Jim
