    Let’s make Nyayo stadium our home ground.
    Despite our emotional attachment 2 City Stadium fondly referred 2 as “Tokowanda” its time 2 shift away from our base until an upgrade of both the playing surface (as suggested by Voltage) & the capacity of the terraces is done.
    @ Nyayo stadium EC can easily charge 100/400bob for terrace & VIP respectively & attract more fans. At these more affordable rates fans will be encouraged 2 bring friends & family along if not have more fans attend home games…..

    @ODUOR12 the surface at the City stadium i am reliably told needs replacement as it is now worn out having served the whole of it’s usefull life. It thus becomes a danger to the players.

  • ODUOR12 says:

    Also the pressure/temptation 2 bribe @ the entrance may b reduced greatly as the rates will b affordable.
    If attendance can b improved 2 increase paying fans 2 13k terracces & 2k VIP it means GM home games can net a minimum of kshs.2.1M.
    That means revenue 4 the 15 TPL will b more than kshs.30M. We still have GoTv etc & no more 9.1M nonsense.
    The effect of such huge support on the team & GM brand will b a big boost.
    Security of coz must b gauranteed.
    Matches r won depending on skills of players/TB

  • @ODUOR12, i agree that Nyayo is better as a home ground. Most soccer players are comfortable on grass pitches even internationally. The distance between the fans and players is also better for concentration.

  • Dan Original says:

    Knowing that our KP Charity oponents Sofapaka beat MOYAS 4-0 in a warm up match I hope our fans will not start reading too much into the results for tomorrow’s game. Every game has different dynamics and it doesn’t mean that these results will count on the Sunday game.

    I want to agree with my fellows above. As the late Professor Saitoti said ” There come a time…” May be we need to brake away from the tradition of Tok Komwanda.There is no need of sticking with it while our players get injured at the benefit of tradition. As it were Nyayo stadium accommodates bigger crowd with every one assured of sitting and watching the game. This is opposed to City stadium. Like even now, the grass is too long that even sitting down scares. You are not sure weather you will sit on a snake. To me I think this is an urgent and a bright idea.

  • LET THE TECH BENCH DO THEIR HOMEWORK

    It is good to hear even after the Ugandans chicken out of the friendly, the technical bench had a quick option. Like I said esier, the friendlies are meant to give the bench an opportunity to watch at close range their new signings and ofcourse a probable first eleven line up.

    The charity power cup scheduled for the February 2nd is also another great opportunity for the technical bench to see their new signings and a probable first eleven line up, we have another reason to show why we were the 2013 TPL champions. A visionaryleadership, an ambitious technical bench, dedicated players and ofcourse a loyal fan base. These are what propelled us to the top of the log last season. We need to sustain the momentum and keep the hopes and aspirations of our great alive.

    On the issue of where we should adopt as our homeground, i think Nyayo is the ideal ground at the moment for many reasons. It is secure, spacious and indeed meets the FIFA international standards. This will in turn offer more revenues for the club as well safety and comfort to our loyal fans. Tok Komwanda has served us well and there are always those nostalgic feelings of the place. Some are saying they have a cultural connection. I agree but at this time and age, the safety of everyone overrides those cultural connections. I do hope the new the Nairobi County government is listening.

    No, Lets stick at Tok komwanda. Tuko na swara hapo NYAYO kwa upande wa Gor. Huwa tunafungwa!!!

  • Sylvester says:

    Preparation so far is good . We only need to believe in ourselves and we shall conquer.

  • OGANYO JUNIOR says:

    am jst praying that GOD help us retain our trophy.
