Gor Mahia have signed Tusker goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch. “We have signed Oluoch and he becomes our first major signing during this transfer window. He brings plenty of experience to the club,” Aduda told goal.com

Given that Gor Mahia already have a good goalkeeper in Jerim Onyango and a capable backup in David Juma and Joel Bataro, this signing does not seem to make sense given that Gor Mahia badly need help in other departments especially midfield and attack. Goalkeeping does not seem to be the problem. One would think that bringing Kevin Omondi back into the fold would have been a higher priority.

According to goal, another signing revealed by Aduda is Ghanian striker Zachariah Taofiq who has penned a two year deal. Others are Martin Waruinge who was formerly with Talanta who has signed a four year deal and Timothy Otieno who has extended his stay at the club for another two years.

Little is known about Taofiq and since he has signed a two year deal, one can only hope he is not another Felixinho.

Aduda also told goal that the team is bringing into the fold Thika United Liberian defender Dirkir Clay who will join them as from February 1 once his contract expires on January 28. “He has agreed to a two year deal,” revealed Aduda.

Other targets are Faroque Sentogo from Uganda, Khalid Aucho formerly at Tusker, Ronnie Owino from Muhoroni Youth and Bidco United’s Ernest Wendo.

    At least something is happening at Gor

    Admin, kevin omondi was io gor for around four year and showed no signs of improvement though he is quite talented. He rarely played well for the entire 90mins. furthermore, he had discipline cases. I think the ec was right not to sign him back. Let the club leadership do its work, we all have our preferred targets but not all of them can join us even if we were the real madrids of this world.

    Leo jakisumo well said Ade would have had a hard time if his form could not return plus I think he served us well while at the club, that’s enough to remember him by.I think he will really torment us at sofa but it will help him grow which is all I can wish him, the best

    It’s not about throwing names but doing the actual signing. I hope the coaches have done a technical and tactical analysis of the team before coming up the signings and names of prospective signings. A club running on a shoestring budget like Gor Mahia must make wise use of every penny available. We must have a leener and efficient first team of 25 players and below. As at the end of the season we had 26 first team players. Only 4 players have left:- Sserunkuma, Kizito, Oboya and Ssemanzi. We must release another 3-4 players if we want to sign 7-8 players (Khalid Aucho, Boniface Oluoch, Martin Waruinge, Ronnie Owino, Ernest Wendo, Dirkir Glay, Faroque Ssentongo, Zachariah Tawfiq. Aucho and Glay will solve our problems in the middle and at the back while Oluoch will provide Jerry with competition. We need a solid fullback 3 to compliment Oluoch as Walusimbi has been pushed forward. I hope we will get a player to replace Danny and his goals. David Juma, Ayong, needs to be released to create place for new arrivals.

    This is a poor piece of journalism with mis-spelling and lack of proper information. Let us give our EC time to recruit players that will good for the team. Let us stop picking our noises on mandates which are not ours. Our job is to support the team and pay right gate collections no matter the circumstances.

    Meanwhile I wish players, executive committee, fans and all bloggers A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2015.

    what about frank Nuttal

  • Dan Original says:

    A few days ago we were complaining about lack of info on transfers until @Kosero cooled our nerves about it. Now we have an overload of info. With Bonnie, Aucho, a younger Ssentoogo, Taofiq, “Rooney’, Werunga, Magoma, Glay , Ernest Wendo and Olunga all set to come on board only a bad misfortune will stop us from surpassing last year’s targets.
    Let’s cross our fingers and hope that all these transfers materialize. The unfortunate thing is that some non-kenyans might have to give way due to the 5 player-ceiling unless we get an exemption from FKF

  • jathur gi ji says:

    That’s right Dan we said here let things happen quietly behind the scenes. We will be good, watch this space and the nay sayers are already scratching their heads

    I still doesnt undertstand at da likes of of oluoch,danniel and juma are doing at gor.These guys are habbitual players but not talented.Hate me or love me but dat is the truth.

  • jimmy amimo says:

    how I wish we should have some height in attack. Olunga comes in mind, Abege from city stars fits the bill. but at least, something is being heard to be happening somewhere. to all fellow comrades, have a blessed a wonderful new year. blessed

  • moses libamba says:

    It was very wrong for the club to have left ADE to go sofapaka. At the moment he was the only option for creativity in the offensive Middlefield which has always been our weak point. Talented players have not been easy to manage. One thing that we must also accept is we have weak player managers inform of the EC of the great club.
