    I will celebrate these wins with so much enthusiasm because I don’t know if and when another win may come. I start by going to church where I will give a Thanksgiving Offering for the two wins. Thereafter, I will take my loved ones out for a Thanksgiving Lunch before we wind up at Nature Trail. Thank you God for the elusive and rare wins.

    Now I ask, how did preseason start with top opposition coming down? Who was advising/misadvising the TB? Everything is built from bottom to top. TB you will have to repeat class one because of this.

    Guys bear with me for re-posting this comment. I highlight it because it was held up in quarantine for very long and for that reason was missed by a number of readers:

    Guys one blogger I respect so much has alluded to the fact that I hacked a fellow blogger’s e-mail account. For the records and to prevent unnecessary anxiety and panic, I want to say that is not the case because I am an illiterate but law-abiding little man with no cognitive and therefore no intellectual capacity to hack someone’s e-details. Besides, I have a deficiency of the diabolical umph required to drive a person to commit such a criminal act.

    My acquaintance with The Villager begun in this site some 5 or 6 years back. The Villager is one of the seasoned doyens of this site. For the records, initially he blogged under the pseudonym Creative Village. Those days we were privileged to have the company of Wuonpap, Jangere, Pundit wuod Kisii, Vincent Ocampo, Ochigah, Jasawagongo, Gem Kendgi, Pareyio Ole Lelerue, Mwakio, Ogango Trailer, Jakoyo, Oduor12, Okoth Jabilo, Le Pastre, Dan who later became Dan Original and Agwa Kassam now Kassam Mwivingano among many other greats. It is through such interactions that I got to know of so many bloggers’ places of origin . This particular one on The Villager was a chat between us two seasons ago and the archives can bear me witness. Thank you all.

    Although these two wins will restore confidence into the playing unit,they are insignificant considering the calibre of teams beaten.Bloggers, when is DSTV cup being played?Today I support st. Luos of Mauritius against The brewers who denied us the league last year.

    Lets Play Kpl Teams To Gauge Our Strength

  • Barefoot Bandit says:

    Tucheze na KPL teams halafu tufungwe?

  • I can see we are on the right path to our rare victories. Let us select our calibre of teams like Lambwe combined, Thur Gem secondary and NYS FC. That way, we will build enough confidence in our playing unit-just enough confidence to avoid relegation that is staring at us this season. Ulinzi has just demonstrated to us how to behave in the knockout stage of these continental games so let our relegation-bound misfits mimic their dedication.

  • Jaupanda says:

    I am impressed with the wins.
    1. The so called small teams are very difficult to play an intelligent game against.
    2. Two different teams of the same team were on the firing line and both came out victorious.
    3.As a motivating factor they are beginning to get their ground

  • odhis muga says:

    @jambita tiny just to add on your list:Ahero girls, Nyakach girls and Maranda Form ones.These are our mates nowadays.Hatutaki stress ya kupigwa na Kpl or NSL teams as we wait for the impending relegation.

  • moses says:

    wewe Admin;eti in another match.You give it little airtime yet we won 5-0.We won.

  • Jakoyo says:

    Hehehr…..Were this games played over 90 minutes with 11 men ? I fail to believe . me think this was a 5 a side games so I will believe when I see a full 90 minutes , 11 aside match.

    Ze maria is yet to convince me of his abilities.

    • Jaupanda says:

      @Jakoyo
      Going by what has happened to Tusker and Ulinzi serviving by a whisker, it may not just be the coaches. Most of our players have a long way to go. My sentiments are that we can not lay all blames at the coach’s feet. All is not lost each day brings for a brighter tomorrow.

  • ja Thur GI ji says:

    Cheers to St Luos, they have just thwinyad Brewkenge

  • odhis muga says:

    Tusker beaten 2 1 by AS Luos 2000 of Mauritius.To mitna!!They should know people, they don’t belong there. Gor is also waiting to beat them in the DSTV cup.

  • deo oliech says:

    The current squad has very good players, a coach like loga would win the league unbeaten

  • Barefoot Bandit says:

    You guys won’t stop amazing: Now they are St. Luos! I mean LUOS?

  • Jasego says:

    Tusker bwana why embarrass our national flag in that form and manner?I mean is that the calibre of Kenyan champions on continental scene which can be termed as Mediocrity?I am not amused by the showing as much as am not your fan I still believe they should have performed much better against Mauritius opposition who are now apparently Jodala as Jakoyo denotes….Read St Luos (Jakoyo bed moss it’s a light touch)I know your ferverance loyalty to Jodhot owadwa…

  • A person says:

    At least we played against our worthy opponents and managed a win. I am just worried about the number of goals conceded in the last 4 friendlies. The replacement for Ottomax should prove that he is worth his salt. isokei I think we can now try a friendly with Pandpieri Fc.

  • Marto Original says:

    What the hek?! Am just wondering aloud since when did we cease being patriots. It doesn’t matter if Tusker and Ulinzi are our rivals internally but when they are playing a continental, they represent Kenya hence we need to give them our full support. I remember when Kogallo was in Tanzania, in 2015, Kenyans from all walks of life supported us regardless of our internal club affiliations. It is a serious lack of sportsmanship for those who are celebrating Tusker’s loss. We should instead be mourning the weak state of Kenyan football and having conversations on how to strengthen it.

  • William Apida says:

    As much as some of us are raisnig issues about the team’s preparedness for the season, it is important to remember that we should encourage instead of condeming the team and the TB. History has also taught me that a slow starting GOR is has always become the most consistent one through the season. The team will pick up, for those who are not patient enough, please hold your horses.

  • ja thur gi ji says:

    Marto who told you Brewkenge was part of those cheering us on our success in Tanzania in 2015? They were not. I cannot forgive them for what happened last year, so allow me to dance tatataaa…titing titing… people steal …people go try…then they fail and I dance to that….tiiiiting tatang. Jamriambo please tell him. But I will support Ulinzi through their next matches.

  • Dan Original says:

    As @Wlliam Apida puts it how does a loss of Tusker strengthen Gor? If we beat a weak Tusker then an average CNAPS will always bear us. What we forget is that if the local teams do weill in CAF competitions then we get more slots in CL and CC. By the way did Tusker award themselves those points or it was KPL/FKF?

    • jamriAmbo says:

      This is not a forumn to promote tusker Bwana. I am very Kenyan, but there are people I would be ashamed to be associated with. Did tusker in fair play deny the points or fairly state they didn’t need donated points?

    • Let’s not try to be hollier than thou. World over people are happy when their opponents lose. Real fans celebrate Barca loses, Ingwe celebrate Gor loses, Man U fans celebrate Arsenal problems and the list continues. Even the Tanzania we are talking about had Simba fans cheering Gor Mahia against Yanga.

      A Tusker loss has already happened and their win was not going to strengthen Gor either and so fans must be allowed to tease them without reading too much into it.

  • As I celebrate Tuskers loss , I need to remind whoever will want to question my patriotism that any of my opponent’s pain is my gain and as many of the bloggers have rightly said , would the patriots pls tell as any part of the world in club football where supporters cheer their opponents , patriotism is only is adhered to strictly to the national teams and this is including the countries that pioneered football and that is y it is to the delight of Man u , liverpool and chelsea fans that Arsenal have never won the champions league…ooops sorry to Arsenal fans but I had no other team to use to drive my point home
