    “Executive community” is determined to continue with this “youth money fleecing farce” maybe to drain GMFC coffers empty b4 next elections.
    1. Isn’t Korea still the caretaker coach of City Stars? Surely he can’t handle both jobs effectively-Someone is being conned here!
    2. EC/AR what were the gate collections against Sher? The sunday games figures already out, over 1M will smaller crowd

    With Danny AWOL and Rama off for trials I hope the rhythm will not be affected. It’s now upto the players to prove themselves.
    Once again our loud-mouthed EC goofed. Telling us not to treat Rama and Danny’s absence as romours then later on accepting that they are away.
    All the same we are still sound and ready to challenge for the trophy

    Taking into consideration,the circumstances under which the gentleman tasked to select and possibly coach the Gor Under 17 ,do we really think Korea is the best choice for that position. More so against the backdrop of him being the caretaker coach for a Premier league side,City Stars.Truth be told he may be a good goal keeper trainer ,kudos and may the hats be removed!However in terms of engagement vis a vis being a goal keeper trainer,competitor in the league,you have my reservations on my bald head and ” balding ” executive.It may leave a bitter taste in the mouth to realise that the reason why Thika United,Sofapaka,Tusker ,Ulinzi and many other Premier league sides draw their best players from Nyanza is because of lack of a Youth development programme in the granary and conveyor belt of Sports! Wakey wakey ! Time to wake up ! A goal keeper trainer who is a competitor !
