Greetings to all Kankas, Regular Readers and Visitors.


On behalf of our two Webmasters – Oz Kanka Chris and Bellshill Kanka Nady – I would like to take this opportunity of wishing you all a Happy New Year 2023.


With the season at the half way point there have been mixed fortunes for both Ankara teams with Ankaragucu attempting to consolidate their position in The Super League and Genclerbirligi attempting to avoid relegation from The Championship Lesgue.


We have done our best to keep this website/blog going during these difficult times and have tried to meet-up on a regular basis either at The Eryaman Stadium or our meeting venue in Kizilay, The Bira Park Bar.


Nady and I will continue to keep our reports of matches and other news going for the remainder of the season.      


It is not looking very hopeful for Gencler to avoid the drop, but as we all know in football, miracles do happen from time to time.


The new Ankaragucu Coach, Omer Erdogan, has given Ankaragucu a massive lift and it looks likely that he will succeed in maintaining Ankaragucu’s top flight status.


My next report of Ankaragucu’s visit to play Galatasaray will be up here on Thursday.   


In the meantime, here are some photos from yester-year to bring a few smiles and sniggers.


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

Ha ha ha .............. ho ho ho .............. good olde days.       More good days to come ............ Insallah   !!

    Great pics Jim I'll try to meet up with you guys in May same time as Nady if it's possible. I'm in Alanya at the time..

  2. That would be amazing Johnny !!! A win for Ankaragucu and then the celebrations in the world famous Beyzade Meyhanne Restaurant. Nady has been there in one of his hundreds of visits to Ankara when he always wins the Misket Dance Competitions !!! This will be something to look forward to and I'm sure that there will be a full turnout by the Ankara Kankas. Bring it on !!!
