  1. On behalf of Coast fans, I return all the glory and honour to the Almighty God for the sweet victory in the mighty name of Jesus Christ…Amen

  2. Comgratulations to team K’ogalo for the hard fought win.
    I watched the 1st half on SS9E and and afew minutes of 2nd half due to heavy downpour. I loved the way the team played apart from giving that Wafula guy a lot of space to run to.

  3. YAWAYAWA,we us funs we r salvating 4 afc ingwe,we nid them nd l mean it..team iko juu,kindly,TB shud start renewing contracts of our players early coz zingne zinaexpaya june..e.g rama,nasio,etc

  4. Humility will keep us going. Just as the players have their heads in the air and feet on the ground we should emulate them. They never underate any team nor talk ill of any of the opponents.

    Congrats boys. Meanwhile let’s keep the paybill number 350100 busy.

  5. EC kindli hasten the membership drive so that the contribution fatigue dsnt catch up with willing fans.

  6. Thank u lord 4 the sweet victory .Chemilil were also a gud side but the beter team won. I hope that this winning streak continue into the cecafa club championships(Kagame cup) so that K’ogalo reclaim his position as no. 1 in the pecking order in cecafe region. We shud bring the trophy that have been very dificult 4r the likes of tusker,Ulinzi & sofapaka. kudos boys 4r the gud work & making us happy & proud.

  7. Congratulations to team Gor Mahia for the sweet victory. We thank God for being wth us especially during this difficult times. Up up up Kogalo Mayienga Mayiengo Piny. The hard work of these boys will reward Gor Mahia the 2nd League Trophy on the bounce. Thank you Lord for this victory against Chemelil.

  8. Good to see kopany and others coming off the bench.

    60 points , that is what you need to win the kenyan league, 31 more points to go!

  9. gud show by chemelil. they can play and have gud passing rate. i liked gor display, there was urgency in the passes and were more dangerous with the ball. that was a professional display and i did not see any ‘kucheza na chakula’. that was gud football… keep it up.
    congrats to chemelil for not showing fear.

  10. tamu sana, by the way chemelil came into the game with an attitude, now at least they have realized that we can beat them anywhere, even in their very own homes. so next time they would rather go for gate collection by taking the match to afraha where the turn up is always good and save mashemeji the pain of seeing kogalo winning

  11. I knew it was going to be a tough match, but I predicted that kogalo was going to win 1 nil.I cant just understand the pattern they have brought in but nonetheless let him carry on so long as musa,calabar,walusimbi and shakava are in the defence!please,please defenders make sure you give your opponents especially when playing with ingwe,sofapaka and tusker both POLICE AND MABUS MARK!Otherwise kogalo juu zaidi.

  12. @Mboya, we were all making noise at BW when we lost to Top Fry and Bandari. The system has now changed. We are now playing 3-5-1-1 and this system is giving opponents a lot of headache. Remember how Mourinho won the first EPL with Chelsea using wingbacks. Hii ndio system sasa. Walusimbi and Musa are now playing upfield with Calabar slightly in-front of them. This system is however very risky when you play Ingwe with very speedy wingers. They can hit you on the break

  13. Our heartfelt condolences to BW. Let’s win the Sunday game as an appreciation for his efforts. Without him the and JBO the TM or goalkeeper trainer will stand in for them. As much as the two will be missing the motivation should be high to win the game for the sake of the two gentlemen.
    I have the belief that we will make it past Tusker though they are fond of playing a physical in order to physically harm our players
