Gor Mahia were eliminated from the 2016 Africa Champions league when they lost 0-1 to CNaPS for a 3-1 aggregate score. CNaPS scored their goal in the first half through Njiva Rakotoharimalala , the man that this author identified as their most dangerous player3 weeks ago.

“We were in the game on opening minutes but the moment they scored…that goal put us off the mark. We allowed them time to dominate and were eventually punished.” said coach Frank Nuttall after the game.

For Gor Mahia, their goal drought continues. It is something the team will need to address as they resume their league campaign.

    To be honest I think we all expected it…from the shoddy player registration,to the lacklustre pre season preparations,late return of key players for the season,to the 2-1 loss to Bandai and then cnaps in the 1st leg…the writing was on the wall.
    All is not lost though..let’s get our groove back and gun for a 4th successive league title!!

  • jathur gi ji says:

    I blame this on poor management, after winning the local league last year we knew we were going for this, what did we do? Nothing! So amateurish.

  • Ja'Asego says:

    Gor is not playing any meaningful football and we all knew we’d lose in Madagascar,question was by how many goals,we even are lucky it was one.Unrealistic Optimists keep on dreaming and living in your see no evil,hear no evil,talk no evil but fact remains Gor is a sorry pale shadow of the Glorius 2015 squad and can’t think of sjy silverware this season with those calibre of useless players we signed.That’s the Reality na SioTafadhali…

    Nikuvaya. Next Game ulinzi 4 gor 1. Afc léopard 3 gor 1

  • oswozo moziek says:

    Such a bunch of fickle supporters…this team has given us success year in year out.Just coz they have started off badly does it warrant that kind of talk??especially from you blackmarket? ?
    The team doesn’t deserve such fans…quit and start supporting the likes of ushuru and Sony. ..Gor is better off without such low life’s like you!!!

  • jakoyo says:

    I had bet sportpesa for kogallo to loose….at least i made some money this time round. I still dont understand why you field out of form blackberry and expect to score 3 goals. Wishful thinking and misguided expectations. What is our target as a club this year .?

    Like i said this is the week of kichapo…next is ulinzi followed by the in form mashemeji. I will still bet sportpesa for kogallo to loose.

    next week monday we will all be asking for technical bench to resign..7 games without a win and with only 2 goals!!

    • Jamigori says:

      It will be the office to resign

      • Dan Original says:

        So if the office resigns every time we lose then we will have more office bearers than ingwe. Any realistic Gor fan was expecting a draw to be the best result. For those telling us how the recruitment was bad , the EC, The players, the TB please give us a break. We need to encourage the team to start winning and if we don’t win the 4 consecutive title then it’s God’s willl

        • Jamigori says:

          @Dan Original the famous sycophant of AR has opened his big mouth to continue defending the useless and inept EC office. Continue defending the rot in this office and you too will go down with it.

          • Dan Original says:

            @Jamigori, get a life. it’s only a game and there is no need to pull hairs. Last year as we were winning you thought it would last forever. Too bad. You need to manage your expectations else ulcers utapata kwa wingi ,

            Personally I believe it’s just a matter of time and we will begin winning though not like last year

  • Jamigori says:

    The EC and TB has never been serious with continental championship. From the following reason:-
    – poor management led by AR and EC,
    – poor planning,
    – poor execution,
    – poor scouting,
    – poo recruitment,
    – filing to CAF of names of the players timely,
    – poor pre-season training,
    – creeping indiscipline in the playing unit,
    – TB&EC bad blood,
    – TB & players fallout,
    – lack of cohesion in the team,
    – lack of teamwork in the playing unit, etc

  • moses says:

    The glorious years of 2015 are behind us;we have to deal with defeat after defeat till June as we await our world class players

  • sandroman n dedez says:

    perpetual loosers…….stupid players wth no ambition bure kabisa…. . hw long does it take to get a victory.

    • Dan Original says:

      @sandroman n dedez , eti ‘Stupid players’. I doubt whether youa re any intelligent than any of the players. Otherwise your comments would have been different

      • Jamigori says:

        @Dan Original, it appears you have become the mouthpiece of AR and his inept office. I am just wondering for how long will you continue to defend the rot or are you part of this EC? Have you been hired by the EC or are you one of the beneficiaries of looters at the club?

  • kpltactics says:

    I am always fascinated by the fans here who keep playing apologists for the club’s administration. We can commend them for the little work they’ve done but to behave like a club formed in the 60s should be bound to particular characters is silly.
    ***
    Gor Mahia should at par with our neighbours in Tanzania at the very least. We should be aiming to match Merrikh and Al Hilal. We don’t need wealthy backers/patrons; the Kenyan economy can match corporate sponsorship needed to be a regular in the CAF Club group stages ($3-7 million budget) of
    course winning is another scale.

    Where is the “five-year plan?” Where is the scouting sophistication of Kenya’s biggest football club? It’s becoming like Arsenal. An all too predictable cycle every year. Despite all the winnings one doesn’t get the impression that the Club (as an institution) has moved forward. Cue apologists talking about a sponsorship that only goes to covering wages.

  • nyakwar thano says:

    you mouthy fans you can go to other clubs at a loan until next season. who asked you to support gor. if the road is rough jump out of bus and walk. stupit kabisa. give us a break.

    Ooh Laa la…..”To the ” DUALE’S” and “KINDIKI’S of this blog”…… POLENI SANA.!!!

    KWAINI K’OGALO NI YA MAMA YENU BWANA.? K’OGALO Si YA MAMA YENU BWANA..
    We are in K’OGALO to support,critic,appraise,analyze and where possible determine both corrective and preventive measure depending on issue at stake. Give us a break if you can’t withstand the REALITY and let us blog objectively and not subjectively.

    Stop gagging very seasoned individuals of this site from posting their independent opinions with matters pertaining to GOR MAHIA.

    HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY MY FELLOW BLOGGERS BE IT REALIST,OPTIMIST OR PESSIMIST. WE WILL TOUCH BASE NEXT WEEK ON MONDAY AND COMPARE NOTES AFTER FACING BOTH THE BRUTAL SOLDIER BOYS OF “THE LION” MATANO AND THE RESURRECTING AND MARAUDING LEOPARDS OF INGO.

  • Ja'sego says:

    Who the hell is gradus ochieng,Amos nondi,James ogada,Eric ouma,Edmond murai etc?Omera are those mediocre calibre of players a club if gor’s stature should be signing while our peers Zesco United,Yanga,El-Merreikh,St George and Simba pick only the creme-de-la-creme of East Africa?Does it mean any Nondescript aspiring footballer can end up in gor?I think this signings are purely based on EC Nepotism,I hear they are all nephews and brothers to David Kiilo,Ronald Ngala and John Pesa and that’s how despite possessing no skills worth talking about whatsoever,are now bonafide kogalo players.Forget that almost none will ever break into Nuttal’s 18 ar any given point in time the whole season and will leave silently as they came in 2017…

    • Dan Original says:

      Let’s respect our players. If you criticize please do so objectively.

      • Jamigori says:

        @Dan Original, I think you should be the first fan to be exiled to either your village team or Mathare where I think you DNA is associated to with all due respect.

      • Ingo says:

        Dan I agree with you but this is the proble. These players will refuse to take the pitch when they are not paid and go to the media and say all sought of things; dont you think we should also hold them accountable when they dont perform. The feeling should be mutual

  • COMPRESSER says:

    A waste of space by a mediocre @dan original.for can’t excel with these brothers of rachier,kg and ongala. I think it’s time for the ec to pack and go.

    • Dan Original says:

      From what I read here most of us are just emotional. Emotions won’t get you far but reasoning will. If we win the next five games the emotions will change but reasoning will not.
      If we were reasoning we would have asked for an overhaul of the club’s constitution instead of going personal and calling others names. With a progressive constitution it would not matter who is in the EC but the rules of engagement would define everybody’s area of operation and accountability.
      On our performance we are experiencing a dip in form which all teams must experience at one point in the season. Luckily last year our dip in form did not have much effect on our results:- do we still remember how we struggled against Mathare and Nkr Allstars and our unbeaten run was threatened?

      We might not like the current EC but us we strive to make changes which are by the way inevitable let’s remember where we came from. Who was with us when we really needed them? With a sponsor on board we cannot run out of candidates for these positions but will the same be able to hold the positions if things turn out to be different?

  • COMPRESSER says:

    I will never support Ambrose or ngala throughout my life.it’s time guys to get new brooms.

  • NGESTO says:

    Football is not about winning everyday, all teams PRAY AND TRAIN and we have one GOD. Results are of three probabilities: WIN, DRAW OR LOSS. TRUE FANS ACCEPT ANY, KAMA UMECHOKA KUSSOPORT K’OGALO USITUSI MAPLAYERS, NENDA KAPIGE TEAM ZINGINE SUPPORT. KPL HAS 15 OTHER TEAMS TEMBEZA SIASA YAKO NA MATUSI KWINGINE. K’OGALO FOREVER NA HATUBANDUKI

  • jakorando says:

    we played well we only need to improve then results will come but we cant win everyday and every year.

  • Kevin Wuod Ambok says:

    One thing evident from all gor mahia games is that we lack a good centre forward. Jacob Keli is a flop …I have said this and I will continue saying. Agwanda is a heavy player who doesn’t have a knuck of goals. Four million man tuyisenge is out with an injury I don’t know till wen. Believe it or not we will struggle for goals till June when the transfer window opens. Paul Mwangi Kiongera is struggling in Simba and will not renew his contract with simba in June so David Kiilo should be wise and sign him . he is a proven goal poacher.we need such a player in Gor. Blackberry should be benched.He has become a squad player nowadays playing useless soccer. Eric Ouma is a young player with good abilities to fit in. innocent wafula can also play there. so Gor Mahia take note.

  • Caleb Mathews says:

    Departure of Micahel Olunga, Meddie Kegere and Ali Abondo being felt. There is need to sign good strikers during the mid season transfer period.

  • jakorando says:

    @ Kevin wuod Ambok those ideas are so usiless and i do not think they should be posted here am sorry for proviking you but chech what you pu here . perhaps you are new here but who told you we normally sighn rejects in gor mahia
