    Currently, Gor Mahia’s biggest footballing problems are suspect goal keepers and a very wasteful forward line. CAF speaking, I had hoped P.Odiambho would be a solution to the first problem so am glad to see him back on the team sheet after surprisingly sliding down from 1st choice to 3rd choice. As for scoring solution seems to be Gulkan. Anyway buck stops with Ker, does he have the quality to guide GMFC on the continental level. Words of wisdom from Sir.Bob Ogola are incisive and very good advice for the club’s management. Chance for passengers to prove themselves. All the best against K.Sharks.

      Boni seems to have a weakness in dealing with shots from a distance and sadly during high profile matches. Azam free kick and Rooney’s shot come to mind.Bet you Esperance will try to exploit such weakness. GK Odhoji?? P.Odiambho impressed with some clean sheets at the end of last season so hopefully Ker will make the best decision but in my view we still need to rope in a top notch shot stopper in the next transfer period.

        P. Odhiambo kept a clean sheet in the first half then Odhonji conceded in the second half….as usual. Do you know he has conceded in all games he has played this season?

    @ musymo the goal Nkana scored you can’t blame Shaban.The goal we scored I believe was a soft penalty shouldn’t have been given,.Overall the team played a disjointed game.Kerr always complain abt the pitch, I was expecting a more purposeful play since we train at Toyoyo bt wapi hakuna tofauti na kucheza Thika,Afraha ama kericho.My point the coach should work on playing attractive football, this will automatically jaza stadium.

      That abrupt longball otada Philosophy of Kerr might work for sometime but wont conquer Africa.He benches guikan then complains of many lost chances which should have been buried esp by Kagere.Come next game formation remains the same and the same story repeats,mara pitch mara ooh…I supported and still and always will support coach Kerr but modern football dictates we keep the ball more,build play from the back and score from clear created combination football
