Gor Mahia gave away two easy goals at the end to gift KCB a crucial point in a Kenya Premier League match played at Nyayo stadium on Saturday. Collins Okoth scored the match opener from the penalty spot after Wycliff Ochomo was fouled in the penalty box. Okoth was at it again in the 55th minute, this time setting up Eric Masika for Kogalo’s second goal. KCB protested the goal to no avail. Defensive lapses gifted KCB two goals much to the chagrin of Kogalo fans.

The match was poorly attended when compared to recent matches. The reason is likely because the club leadership has turned a deaf year to the fans pleas for changes in the technical bench. The fans who attended reacted by pelting the technical bench with foreign objects. A sad day indeed for Kogalo as KCB were going through a loosing streak of their own. It comes at a time when Gor Mahia’s rivals are going through a good run of form.

  • mwakio says:

    The match was in deed poorly attended and fans pelted technical bench with objects as reported by the writer. Since the log began, we fans who love the club have been crying for changes in how technical approaches to the game but all these positive calls have fallen into deaf years of both the coach, technical team members and club officials. We had posted that the lady luck of one nil victories was soon going to end and this has come to pass. We underscored the need for the club to engage fans on how a club can be run but all have been ignored deliberately by the office. Below are the problems that have affected the performance of the team:-
    1. Zico has got no credentials to handle Gor Mahia at this level of football competition.
    2. Gor Mahia team over the years have had a pattern of playing the most attractive flowing football with crisps passes. This is now history with long passes which are not known with our club.
    3. Zico has deliberately failed to bring unity in the playing unit.
    4. Victimisation of players with different opinions from what Zico thinks have led to either players being left out from the first starting eleven or being permanently being sidelined.
    5. Inept leadership or lack of leadership from the office. The leadership at the helm of club is lacking due to chairman indecisiveness in making radical changes in the club.
    6. High hardedness of Zico in handling of technical skills to the club
    7. Hiring of goons by Zico and office to harrass or silence fans who have been vocal against the system and style of football the club is playing. Some fans have been attacked by these hired goons and the recent attack of Awilo by these goons is a clear testament to these actions.
    8. Nepotism in fielding of players from the onset of the log.
    9. Opium smoking in the technical bench and terraces by fans.
    10. Corruption cases perfected by elected officials in the procurement of club replica jerseys and printing of entry tickets by the rogue officials and fans.
    11. Lack of accountability and transparency by club officials in publishing of the state of financial affairs of the club to fans for public scrutiny. We need accountability on how financial resources at club disposals have been used.
    12. Failure by officials to engage fans regulary on how the club can be professionally managed.
    13. Failure of office to put better infrastructure and structures on how the club can be managed in modern football.
    14. Stealing of gate collections by rogue officials and fans.
    15. Chairman is too busy for the club and this is seen by failure to attend matches under the pretext of campaigning for FKL election. I think this will be futile attempt if he can not show leadership at the club, how will he replicate the same to FKL?

    Verdict: For the public interest, coach Zico should just do a honourable thing by throwing in the towel.

  • jakojera 9 says:

    Haya the fans numbers have started dwindling will i be the only one at the stadium? The management still does not see that something is wrong………Zico one match gone two to go…utaweza kweli?

  • Vincent Ocampo says:

    Mwakio has said it all.to that I wl not attend any kogalo unless something is done urgently.To club officials plz do something urgently b4 late or do u want to have 40 fans attend your matches?has have been said Zico is the core problem.so kazi kwenyu

  • ODUOR12 says:

    When i entered the stadium i was shocked n dismayed at the low attendance by fans. Even no. of comments on this n other GM sites r low, next shock y wasn’t LOVE-A-STAR started, note KCB was a very soft team opponent yesterday.

  • ODUOR12 says:

    Another shock even our previously solid defence line is now fumbling. To humbly add to Mwakio’s list (or expound on his pt. no. 5)
    16.Failure of the office and in particular the chair to engage the bench n players regularly so as to forestall the current crisis.

  • mwakio says:

    Am going back to voi where I’m respected and there are no hired goons to harass me because I differ with Zico’s pattern of football. May be I will watch all games at periphery since I have been accosted by same hired goons. Why is Zico and his Kariobangi branch hiring goon to harass honest fans like Mwakio? Alternatively I will be watching Manchester United and Barcelona my favourite teams where there are no hired goons.

  • WUONPAP says:

    AS THE KALONZO OF THIS SITE PUTS IT FOR GOD AND MY CLUB.LAST SEASON UNDER THREE COACHES WE WERE NUMBER 2 .WE CHANGED COACHES WHEN RESULTS WERE NOT FORTHCOMING.THIS SEASON MAYBE 10TH POSITION WILL BE A MAJOR ACHIEVEMENT JUDGING BY THE PLAY EXHIBITED.FANS HAVE VOTED WITH THEIR FEET AND ARE SLOWLY KEEPING AWAY FROM THE MEDIOCRITY ,ARROGANCE AND INEPTITUDE ON DISPLAY.SOFAPAKA CHANGED COACHES ARE NOW ABOVE US AND EVEN OGWANG CAN HAMMER SONY 3-0 AT AWENDO WHILE WE WHO WANT STABILITY ON THE BENCH CANNOT EVEN WIN AGAINST CONGO.THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU SEE NO EVIL AND HEAR NO EVIL.ZD POCKETS HIS CASH AS USUAL AS LOYAL FANS ARE FORCED TO EAT HUMLE PIE AND WALK HOME DRENCHED IN RAIN AND DESPAIR.FOR GOD AND MY CLUB AS ZD/KOSERO PUTS IT.

  • oriyah fredrick says:

    am completely astonished by our results and to justify this check the table,ZICO should be a worried man and carry out the responsibilities and recent poor perfomance.we used a lot of money during the past transfer window bt seemingly we got the wrong crop of players.THE kind of football being played is wanting.NO FLOWING FOOTBALL WE ARE USED TO!SCORING IS A PROBLEM!FUMBLING DEFENCE IS A ROUTINE NOWDAYS!ACTION WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT OR OTHERWISE NO ONE WIL ATTEND UR MATCHES!AM GREAT FAN OF THE TEAM.

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    Wuonpap, ka rach ni to muony wembe. Who did not play yesterday that would have made the difference. The problem is deeper than ZD. I can assure you, whoever will take over Gor will face the same problems. As long as we continue electing illiterate people like Ataro in the EC, I dont see much changing. There is a deliberate eeffort to sabbotage the team. All said and done, I shall remain very loyal to the current squad, technical bench and EC. For God and my club Kogallo.

  • dinga says:

    the sad part. i am nolonger buying tuzo milk. rachier has no idea what he is doing and this guy zico is below par technically. the one nils scores can actually be attributed to the fans. the decay started along time.rachier is in this purely for 2012. if zico really cared for gor, he would have left.the mentality zico has “if i go down, the gor is coming with me”.

  • Okech says:

    The problem is with the top management, Rachier should have sort out the view of the club and fans before he decided to run for the FKL seat.
    Its now a crisis at the club but his busy campaignin.
    The resurgence of gormahia to the top brass was as a result of the faithful followers now our green army numbers is declining…hope this acts as a wake up call for the management to take action.

  • TABOO says:

    ……..and soon even the sponsor will run away and Rachier and co will be back to square one. The writing is on the wall.

  • Jackowili says:

    @11 Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch – Kampala) gini rach ni ji tee. Don’t tell me you are enjoying it. Are you sure you are not part of the clique sabotaging the club.

    I honestly find your indifference baffling.

    @8Pole ndugu Mwakio for falling a victim of the hired goons. I welcome you to Coast to continue being the loyal and sensible Kogalo fan that you have been. Pole sana avongo.

  • Jasawagongo says:

    I think for the best thing is to accept reality that we are out of contention for the league and get back to the drawing board for next year. For a start lets all of us register as members of the club in our branches and come election time participate in voting visionary individuals who have gor at heart.This isthe only thing that can make us have formidable side that can win the league.otherwise with current officee with the cracks that exist we are heading nowhere as the same cracks have gone down deep to the players and fans.
    Mwakio dont go to voi before ensuring whoever attacked u is brought to book as i think some people/thugs are taking advantage of our sorry state to settle their grudges.

  • Ja Thur gi ji says:

    Disappointed and for Kosero my friend there comes a time when reality dawns and a man has to move positions, otherwise I am thinking that you are one of the syciphants breaking this great club. It is really bad , from top contenders to mere participants. Something like number twelve finish woulkd not surprise me if this trend continues. And the signs are that nobody is going to do something about it. I wasn’t there on saturday and I do not think I want to risk being there against Leopards. Come on Ingwe, kula kitu.

  • Dan says:

    If we really love the team then this is the time that support is needed. On saturday all the players we have been asking to be fielded were there. Our defence which is usually the strongest pillar of the team is now as weak as the striking department. Withoust Erico we would not be scoring and would as well be leaking in goals from behind. His attitude is what is needed in the team. I have noticed and have even been told by one of the KPL coaches that our players’ confidence is now at its lowest. The problem now runs deep. With a dip in confidence what is required now is something to lift the players phsyc as the physical levels cannot be improved any more at this time in the league. Since ZD’s position is already ‘poisoned’ I wish he could take some leave for the remainder of the season and leave us to see what life could be without him. We might end up performing even poorly, better or the same but at least there will be some ‘percieved’ peace during the matches. When will we Africans learn to let go when things are not working our way? For those vowing not to attend any more matches that’s not a surprise since when GM was performing poorly some years ago some of them were nowhere to be seen. Personally I will still attend even the AFC match proudly wearing my K’ogalo T-shirt even if everything looks to be going against us. That’s what I believe the players need right now. We should start strategizing how to have a stronger team next season starting with the management, technical bench and players. Let’s be carefull how we choose the GM office bearers. We have alot of competent followers who can take us to the next level but the mob mentality, illetracy and competency is still taking us back. The last games have done the brand alot of damage that even SS opted to the Ulinzi game and that creates a bad impression. I know some will argue that we can do without SS but in corporate terms that means alot. A reputable company will distance itself from any product or occasion that can damage their reputation. And that’s the (il)literacy that @Kosero is talking about. Can’t wait for the weekend match to prove that we can hold our forte despite the house leaking.

  • . . .. . .zio crisis time immemorial, .. . .we shall attend matches again once there are changes, as for now, we will continue watching Rugby world cup . .. . . .for Zico & like minded fellas to know

  • Pundit says:

    So Sad…i’ll never attend Gor’s match until ZD leaves maybe then the goons will not be there..i want us to lose our next game so that ZD can finally leave..anyway we cant win the league now.

  • Dan says:

    @Salapata and @Pundit pls reconsider yuur stands. You don’t disown your country just because you don’t like the Prezo. Just avoid the goons by finding a place in the stands where they don’t go. Most of them are either in the main stand or Russia directly opposite the main stand. I have been going with my kids but avoiding the places where they shout obscenities, smoke bang and all types of uncouth behaviour and it has worked for me. All we need to do when we go watch GM especially now is to manage our expectations. That’s what most of us are not doing. Going to the game with a fixed mind that we must win is really hurting us. Especially with our current form. During the KCB my fellow followers were of the oinion that if we don’t score a third goal for a 3 – 0 lead then anything could happen. And it so happened and we went home disappointed. But we will still be there this weekend. For the faint-hearted too bad for them. I can see them only coming back next season. ZD or no ZD GM must continue. Some of us know no other team that gives us both pride and sorrow as GM. I also support ManU but feel nothing when they lose unlike when GM loses.

  • And maybe the problem is us the fans! I think the playing unit is trying its best. ERIC MASIKA is putting his life in danger just to give us results. He has unmatched passion. He is carrying KOgalo family in his shoulders. Thank you and my GOD Bless you abundantly. What lacks in the team is professionalism. Things being done out of whims. Zico should change and the technical bench should also change. Why make GOR MAHIA the laughing stock?

  • manizzle says:

    The poor performance is no reason for fans to throw objects including glass bottles at the players and technical bench. Measures need to be taken by the club to deal with such or else, our games will cease to be shown live, secondly the sponsors might severe ties with the club then we’ll loose our good players. Fans need to be more responsible whether we win, loose or draw. I was really ashamed at the way some fans treated the team on Saturday and even after the Congo match.

  • omondi says:

    there are four departments, FUNS, players, technical bench and officials.

    We funs need not despair we need to keep encouraging our players – Gor have die hard supporters who do not give up. We have watched GOR when it was facing relegation, when there was not singing etc. there is never a time to leave Gor.

    For the sake of the players who need to live out of football I will ALWAYS be There. Please join me things will improve

  • omondi says:

    the best thing that will happen is to see Misika leave for greater opportunity. That for me will be the best reward Gor funs can give the players. Let us not deny them that opportunity

  • Amimo Opudo says:

    having attended nearly all the matches played i.e. KPL, FKL, FRIENDLIES, a critical take @ some of the stars:

    MOSES ODHIAMBO: close sources intimate that he questioned ZICO seemingly drunk during one of the training sessions and that earned him the bench most of the season. it is my utmost belief that had he featured regularly for the team, we wouldnt be languishing where we are currently. he is a creative & attacking midfielder that suffocates the opponents, indeed he is a utility player MOSES must play regularly.

    JERIM ONYANGO: eventhough he has been solid between the posts keeping our hopes alive, his erratic judgements against karuturi, congo & kcb have totally locked us out of the title contention. i still have a lot of faith in him

    ERIC MASIKA: marshalls the defence outrightly, plays all his heart out, dedicated, committed & ever at his best in every game throughout the 90+ mins. his attitude superb, no wonder he saves our faces.

    COLLINS OKOTH: the midfield kingpin. just as masika, hes wholly & fully dedicated, committed with a strong presence. he’s physically astute and ensures clean ball to leg passes. kpl opponents have now developed GATTUSO-PHOBIA.

    RECOMMENDATION: professional technical bench that is issue oriented must be urgently sought to build a firmer Kogallo for the coming seasons. ZICO is not the one to deliver our lost glory.

    kogallo diehard

  • G. Oduor says:

    Again I had to take 2 pills of piriton so as to sleep on sato after the match.will I be doing this kila weekend when GM is playing please I don’t want to be addicted to this drug players help me yawa

  • Agwa Kassam says:

    Dan its good you’re trying to manage the crisis that is in we fans side though i must say this is a crisis tha has developed into a frustration and finally to an illness that some of us are seeking a cure hence you hear some reacting by keeping away,some by hirirng goons to keep their positions,some by speaking in this blog, some by throwing object at the coach and some by merely keeping quiet ..i appreciate your effort though.

    @ Kosero i wish to ask you to expound on the Meza wembe rhetoric directed at wuonpap because for me if someone does that he will surely die or suffer untold pain or injuries..something i would not wish for any GM fan..and many people wouldn’t wish even for their perceived enemies, i do not see any reason as to why someone should be instructed to swallow a razor blade just because you hate him for his statements on a blog..unless if it has another less harmful meaning then we shall all embrace it for the creativity otherwise comrades this is just football..

    I concur greatly with Jasawagongo that we must elect members in the coming GM elections..guys if we love GM we are obliged to be members so that in the coming elections we shall be able to elect members to lead the club and not pure politicians flashing some money around..that’s where it begins.

    I happened to have remained behind on sato and came this man looking respectable,holding a metal rod in his hand and somehow advanced in age heaping praises at the office and the chairman and how he has played his part (for which we agreed)and taken the team to camp..only to be corrected by someone in the crowd that the team never went to camp! well, i only abhor the sycophancy at all levels of our club and the bluntness with which people are willing to lie about issues and people they’re bent on pushing forward..

    At this am not surprised at the rate at which missiles flew in the stadium accompanied with abuses in blogs associated with us!won’t we one day agree to call a spade a spade and where we need a big spoon look for a real one..

    Fine the politics may have trickled to the players, but have we been playing well, is this not the situation a lot of people envisaged way back in April that is now downing..

  • Hello Kogalo Nation.

    We can do better than throw stones for a draw. Are we going to ask for Ocampo when we loose.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    I have been one of the few people who still believed we could win this league. I still wanted Zico to continue till the season closes. Having said that, please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    Please don’t wait for the three matches. Not all supporters are optimists and i have now concluded that either Rachier and Zico are very determined or dangerously arrogant. The cost of this great club going down may not be visible now but will become clear next season.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    Most lovers of Kogalo are also lovers of the English game. That will explain the empty stands. The more we have noise, stone throwing, high charges for terraces (Even VIP is just some slab), poor results, weak office, politics and all the negatives, the more some fans will switch to pubs and sofaset branch to watch the alternative team.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    Please don’t tell me about being a die-hard. Die-hards never built any great club. It is the sofaset people whom whenever they come to stadia, the whole world notices. It is they who wear the most jerseys. It is the girls, women and children who will make Gor a great club. I ask Zico to resign because, his presence has chased away all the neutral soccer lovers. The possibility of being stoned is too real. The media will always highlight all the wrong things that happen at games.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    If you always say what you mean, then i have heard you say that you love Kogalo too much. Prove it. Resign now and save this great club. We will remember you.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    You won’t be able to pay all the players when the numbers dwindle and finances run short. Let us get real and look at the result of our actions whether we are right or wrong. What we must all accept is that the numbers have been our strength.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    You have just landed in Kisumu at 11.00am heading to Mumias with Harambee and over the weekend you will be acting like you did a good job with your squad over the week.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign now.
    Please Zico if you are too proud, just announce that you are stepping aside until the season ends or until investigations are complete. Please borrow a leaf from our government on how they step aside because they fear the word RESIGNATION.

    Please Zedekiah Otieno resign. Now!

  • ochigah says:

    Mayo…!we are there again. why kill what it has taken us years to revive. Must we see GM going to the dogs for us to do the honourable thing (resign) This reminds where we came from when players used to exchange torn socks and shoes during substitution time something i thought would be of the past. As a sober fan i would request both parties concerned (players, technical bench and the EC)to embrace each other for GM to survive the embarrasment

  • ochigah says:

    I got this from gorfc.com and thought i share it with you.”People don’t know the insight of Gor’s poor perfomance but the truth is cold war between Siang’a recruits and Zeddy’s boys. Am shocked to learn that players like Masika,Makori, Kevin Omondi, Lucky Dube, Akumu earns 25k each per month while Ochomo, Selenga, Kevin Ochieng, Hadji Mwachoki are paid 45k each”.Lets base remuneration on performance not who was brought by who since we are ALL GM with a common purpose

  • jamagoya says:

    Kindly step aside Zico,save Gor the shame!

  • Dan says:

    I wonder how well we are preparing for the derby. AFC are preparing like never before and camped in Mumias for the whole week and the promises for goodies for them are coming from all corners. If only we could direct all our energies for this match. We have some pride to protect mind you.

  • wuonpap says:

    WHERE WERE THE KOGALLO DIVAS ON SATURDAY? WHERE WERE THE KOGALLO HELMETS? WAS THE MAINSTAND AND RUSSIA FULL AS USUAL WHILE THE NUMBER OF CARS PACKED AT NYAYO WERE COUNTABLE.LOOK AT OUR BUYS THIS SEASON,SELENGA WAS AN OGWANG REJECT,HADJI WAS A THIKA REJECT,KEVO HAS YET TO PRODUCE ANY MOVE TO RESULT TO EVEN A SINGLE GOAL ,DENNIS OKOTH-YAYE PLIZ THIS MAN WIIL NEVER CLICK.I FIND IT LAUGHABLE THAT YOU CALL ZD ZICO.ZD ONCE COACHED CHEMELIL TO THE POINT OF RELEGATION.CHEMILIL IS NOW 3RD ON THE TABLE.AS MUCH AS AM A LOYAL FAN AFTER THE RANGERS MATCH -WHEN WE OPENED THE SEASON ,REALITY DAWNED ON ME THAT THE PLAYERS WERE OKAY BUT WHAT WE HAD ON THE BENCH COULD NOT TAKE US ANYWHERE.THE WAGE DISPUTES,AWILO ATTACK,THE CAMEROUNIAN RUMOURS ARE JUST BUT A POOR ATTEMPT TO HIDE THE INEPTITUDE IN THE OFFICE AND THE MEDIOCRITY IN THE BENCH.DONT BLAME ATARO AS HE IS JUST TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE OBVIOUS.DONT BLAME THE FANS AS WHO WOULD RISK BEING MAIMED FOR POINTING OUT WHAT IS GLARINGLY OBVIOUS.THE LAST GAMES WE HAVE SEEN DEFENDERS GOING TO DO WHAT THE STRIKERS ARE PAID TO DO AND THEN WE ARE SHOCKED WHEN WE CONCEDE GOALS?!! THE LEAGUE IS GONE WHAT WE ARE LEFT WITH IS THE BEST LOSERS CUP WHERE WE CAN SHOUT OVER THUMPING VILLAGE SIDES.WE WENT FOR CHEAP AND WE HAVE OUR REWARDS.AS ZD/KOSERO PUTS IT WACHA TUMEZE WEMBE.

  • Dan says:

    @Wuonpap. A little respect for the players won’t hurt you. You aks where the Divas were and at the same time call the players rejects. That doesn’t seem to set a good environment for them. When some of our fans are hell bent on hurling stones after every match do you expect the number of ladies attending our matches to go up or down? We seem to be in a hole but we continue digging instead of trying to come out of it.

  • jb says:

    i have read all the above everything point to one thing this bangi man must leave i have taken french leave with alot of pain though i love kogallo but i must be realistic cannot pay to get more pain the best option on table is to keep off till janyasore is fired whatever happens has to happen whether we go back 20 steps back and get the right route the better let each fans protest in is best way she /he can we need value for money any one with little knowledge in football know that our coach is below average wait and see what uganda will do to kenya 3 nill my prediction

  • oti tall says:

    we said it ZICO style is heading nowhere now its a reality you cant beat two birds with one stone imposible i mean coaching HARAMBEE STARS and GOR MAHIA you cant and will not plse do a honourable thing just resign

  • Pundit says:

    well friends….since some of us dont want to throw a stone/missile…and since we dont want to be hurt by ZD’s goons…we have opted to stay out of Kogalo’s games until ZD resigns or sacked! some of us have been very consistent in attending Gor’s matches but from KCB’s game we have deliberately decided to stay out of the games until things normalise.
    N/B we have consistently attended home & away matches with our ladies…not anymore…my friends number about 30! I’ll see you in the stadium when ZD is out coz only then will peace prevail. God bless you all.

    APPALLING. CHAIRMAN COLLUDING WITH AN ILLITERATE COACH TO OBLIETERATE GOR MAHIA AFTER GOR HAS CATAPULTED BOTH TO UNPRECEDENTED HEIGHTS! CAN U IMAGINE THE CHAIRMAN VYING FOR A NATIONAL POST IN FOOTBALL? WHO KNEW HIM IN SPORTS CYCLES OTHER THAN AS A RESPECTED LAWYER? CAN YOU IMAGINE ZIKO COACHING THE MOST DECORATED CLUB IN THE COUNTRY AND THE NATIONAL TEAM AT THE SAME TIME? ZIKO? AM ASHAMED OF MY DAYS AS A FOOTBALLER. I SAID IT 6 MONTHS AGO THAT THIS GUY HAD NO BALLS TO MANAGE GOR AND SOME PEOPLE TOOK ISSUE WITH ME. EXACTLY WHAT I SAID HAS COME TO PASS. TO POKE AN OLD WOUND, KOSERO THE SOFASET BRANCH HAS COME BACK TO MAKE EVEN MORE ILLIERATE COMMENTS ON THIS PAGE!!!! I GIVE UP.

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    @Agwa Kassam I don’t need to expound on anything. Are you Wuonpap’s advocate? Did you read his comments that prompted my response? Why did you not ask him to expound what he meant by his comments. Anyway this is not a forum to exchanging bitter words with one another. Allow each and every one to air his views without name calling. It won’t help us in any way. What is needed now is unwavering support to the team. Those who are now avoiding attending Gor matches are mere joy riders. They were nowhere to be seen 3 years ago. Let them go to where they belong. The real fans are the few who have decided to remain loyal to the club despite the poor performance. There is no doubt they will again come back masquerading as Green Army the moment things work out. For God and my club Kogallo.

  • Agwa Kassam says:

    @ Pundit are saying ZD has goons who cant hurt..no wonder he wont resign..is he bent on shedding blood? i think he is coz he sees everything pointing towards him throwing in the towel

    Now if you say he has hired goons then people just stay away.
    I now remember someone once saying branches are amorphous..now i ask for those who are interested what is the way forward for the coming season and long term sustainable strategy?
    How should elections be handled to come up with a responsive, modern and committed office?

  • Dan says:

    Like @Kosero says some of those planning to stay away came back/joined last year when GM was performing wonders. Why do we just want to be associated with a winning outfit instead of participating in making a winning one? It’s so sad that some no longer want to cheer the team but some teams beating us cannot even fill half of the russia stands at the city stadium. That means that the strength of a team is basically the playing/technical outfit. A rival team official once told me that in GM we are our worst enemies. We have put so much pressure on a young team without giving them any room to falter. True fans support a team even on the last day they are getting relegated. NewCastle is a good example. So it’s now time for the real friends of GM to stand up and be counted. For those who abstain ’cause of fear of hooliganism from a section of our fans them they can be excused, especially the divas and the kids. Personally I will still offer the morale support even if we are humiliated on Sunday. History might just repeat itself

  • Pundit says:

    @ Agwa Kassam,,, Gor can only progress if the likes of @Albert Kosero and ZD quit Gor…this Kosero man does not like Gor…my investigation has revealed that Kosero is actually a ZD goon!

  • Pundit says:

    @Dan…some of us were in the stadium long when Gor was down down..indeed we encouraged friends to come back to the stadium…so you should not be heard saying that you love Gor more than other people…atleast @Kosero confirmed that he has never contributed even a shilling in support of Gor…his work is to relaxe on his sofa set…some of us like @ Agwa contributed even for the bus!
    Gor will be in a much better position if only @Dan and @Kosero gave objective feedback. We are where we are because these two guys cheat the EC that all is well…i wonder whether they support Gor or ZD!

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    @Pundit don’t be mistaken. I am going nowhere. I sleep Gor, eat Gor, breath Gor. I am Gor in times of sorrow and joy. Whether you call me ZD goon or not, matters very little. It only shows where you are brought up from. Why do you want to resort to name calling when challenged? Put your points across for an objective discussion like a learned fellow. Its high time you stopped behaving like jakwath. Jokwath are always ever ready with abuses and unpleasant words for others anytime and anywhere. If people like Pundit are the ones tasked with so called “investigations” in Gor, then we are doomed. A grown up peddling lies is very unfortunate to say the least. Such lies and romours are what is harming Gor. Nothing else. Ring leader, Pundit. They know how the chairman has eaten Gor’s money, they know how ZD is fighting Gattuso, yet he selects him to play for Harambee star which he is in full control, they know how ZD smokes bang, they know how some players earn 10k and others 50K. Surely this are baseless claims that can only help in dismantling the team. There are utterly unneccessary. For God and my club Kogallo

  • Agwa Kassam says:

    Dan, its not only about you..its about all of us.
    Remember the brains that used to say that ‘others contribute nothing to the club’ are the same people who ended up embezzling GM funds.

    Remember the talk of shouldering that others used to print fake tickets for their personal benefits..had we collectively pointed the truth and led ourselves to ascertain how much the club can generate and budget with it we would all have owned everything including the results.

    So whether others were and will be there with GM to the relegation to me doesn’t make sense as we all wanted and still want GM to develop and not just command loyalty..by the way at some point it was GM that had highest sponsorship deal in the KPL partly because of our passion and numbers and so all right thinking fans will embrace our numbers which has that cumulative effects of attracting sponsorship and handsome gate collections..how come people who say they’re more sober minded seems to scoff at other fans departure?

    However ,all this was expected and its reality dawning on GM. GM needs fans more than ever for its players and funds be it from sponsors or gate collections, jersey sales etc GM needs fans.

    But as creative village puts it if its ZD factor that’s contributing towards this then let him give way..if it will take the Chair to act on somethings then let him rise to the occasion.

    We cannot insist that people must bear with bad food for a long time when there is a choice, the people are free to react..but remember you cannot safely dismiss the fact that GM needs fans from whatever angle you look at it! Whoever tells you Dan that GM fans are the players worst enemy is jealous of the Green Army if anything football is played for the fans and organizations of repute like FIFA do proper evaluation regarding fans turnout before promoting venues for major tournaments ..how can we pretend not to need fans in our matches?

    When will we avoid protective and sycophantic politics only aimed at painting others what we want them to appear at the expense of universal benefits..if violence is scaring fans away then let the root causes be identified and possibly improved upon period but not urging people to put up with poor quality in the name of loyalty!

  • Mbusi says:

    You should all exercise restrain and let the coach do his work.Zico yuko poa,sometimes you win , lose or draw.

  • Pundit says:

    It’s ok @Kosero..atleast we know you belong to the Sofaset branch and not in touch with Gor’s reality…wish you well and God’s blessings.

  • OKOTH JABILO says:

    WE CAN DO MUCH BETTER WITH LESS “CHEST-THUMPING”

    My few comrades on this blog just to name a few among may others are;Albert kosero, WUON PAP, Pod Antie, Pundit, Agwa Kassam, Dan, Creative Village,Mwakio,jackowili,Arumtiddi. ole pareriyo and so on. We share one common family of “KO’GALO, where we treasure in the “WORLD OF FOOTBALL”

    We can do much better when we truly reason together as fans and like-minded people despite our diverse opinions. I do not know what benefits or gains are achieved when we bend so low to the extent of calling each other names.

    For our comrades who have made their decision to take a break and “KEEP OFF OR STAY AWAY” i think its within their individual right to personally judge what is good for them.

    PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE THEM OTHERWISE OR BRAND THEM AS “JOHNY COME TOO LATE FANS” ,SINCE WE ALL KNOW THE REASON FOR THEIR UNTIMELY DEPARTURE.

    For those of us who have vowed to fight to the last man with the team and ensure that we engineer changes that we have been demanding from within let us do it professionally.

    Lastly i can not shy away from attending GM matches because of “ZICO GOONS” but rather deal with them from within. “DAWA YA MOTO NI MOTO”

    I will keep on attending matches not because fanatical loyalty to any individual but because my desire to ensure “MIGHTY KO’GALO RE-DISCOVER ITS PAST GLORY THAT ALWAYS MADE ME HAVE MEMORABLE DAY’S UNTIL RECENTLY WHEN THINGS STARTED FALLING APART AND WE ARE NO LONGER AT EASE.

    I can not miss “GOR Vs AFC” derby even if we shall be humiliated like ARSENAL vs MAN U(2-8). I will remember GM for what it was , What it is at the moment and what i would like it to be in future when the likes of RACHIER ,ATARO, ZD will exist in our history books us having been retired diplomatically by public demand.

    AND PLEASE LET US REFRAIN FROM USING ABUSIVE LANGUAGE. IT HURTS AND PAINS TO READ VOICES OF EMOTIONS OTHER VOICES OF REASONS FROM BLOGGERS WHO ARE ABOVE SUCH STATUS.

  • fredrick says:

    this altercation is un called for the bottom line is that gor is in deep crisis to make a better gor mahia brand our mentality should be winning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!winning so that we attract more fans you cannot scare the few who sacrifice to come to the stadium by telling them that you were in gor when they were not there the only reason why Manchester united i a global brand is because they are always winners i have stated from time to time that our problem s are
    1. the current structure of the club seem to have alot of loopholes there is need to better the way the company /club run
    2.this club is like a welfare where any one with interest joins and does what he like
    3.it is a money making business for officials
    4the role of fans is not defined in management the moment fans feel they are making decisions it is a false alarm
    5.the coach is only exploiting the the ineptitude of the office
    6. fans are independent minded people and no where a club management should be at war with its fans e.g liverpool owners engages regularly with fans and he has engaged himself to writing emails to all fans who have been attending matches in the last 7 years
    7. only way to help kogallo from this crisis is that what is good for the club is done immediately they are a)firing Zedekiah
    b)doing/conducting of election
    c)upgrading the constitution to suit progress
    d)respecting all stake holders view even if you do not like it or it is infringing into your thinking
    i still love kogallo what i dont know is what to do with the love

  • Dan says:

    Well said @Jabilo. Let’s not abuse the democratic space we have on this site. What we have in common is the love for GM though we are expressing that love in different ways.I believe if we all had similar opinions it would not augur well for the development of the club since our emotional levels vary and it might end up in psychofancy. I wish we could hear what fans like ole pareriyo thinks of the current situation

  • ODUOR12 says:

    A GM founder member once said and I quote ” Ok waketo korwa to waketo chunywa mondo walos Gor motegno” Loosely translated to mean ” Lets commit ourselves with our hearts to make Gor mighty”.
    If you think abt it that way then come Sunday you may decide to support our beloved GM for believe me Zico is leaving sooner rather than later. Its the club not Zico (or even Rachier) who needs your support now.

  • WUONPAP says:

    PLIZ ZD/KOSERO,DONT GET PERSONAL NOW THAT WHAT CRITICAL GM FANS POINTED OUT WHEN THE SEASON STARTED HAS COME TO PASS.WHILE MOST OF THE CONTRIBUTORS IN THIS PAGE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CLUBS KITTY YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED AS AN ARMCHAIR CRITIC WHO IS ALOOF JUST AS THE OFFICE.LOOK AT WHAT KIMANZI,KOOPS ,AND THE CHEMELIL COACH HAVE DONE TO THEIR CLUBS WITH LESS FINANCES&FANS .
    WE WILL CONTINUE TO SAY HERE AS OTHERS LIKE MWAKIO HAVE DONE THAT WITHOUT A SECRETARIAT,YOUTH ACADEMY AND TRANSPARENT ACCOUNTING THEN SUCCESS WILL BE A MIRAGE.
    THOSE WHO HAVE A PHOBIA FOR CRITICISM SHOULD KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHEN THINGS GO WRONG.OURS IS A CASE OF A CLUB WHICH CRIES FOR ASTUTE AND DEDICATED LEADERSHIP TO STEER IT TO THE STRATOSPHERE.WE CANNOT WIN THE TITLE WHEN WE GO FOR REJECTS LIKE ZD,WISE,HADJI&SELENGA WHILE OUR OPPONENTS GO FOR QUALITY LIKE BARAZA AND KISUYA.YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

  • Jasawagongo says:

    Comrades i really respect your views but i plead that we dont use abusive language and not attack players on this blog as we may kill our upcoming talents for no reasons.REmember that these same players we are calling rejects are the same players who in time of need rise to the occassion and make us celebrate.FOotball is their proffession and lets accord them respect

  • Dan says:

    @Wuonpap I repeat my comments again. A player cannot be a reject just because he disagreed with his club and decided to move on or was released. The Congo coach was released by Thika United and the team humiliated us in Nairobi. What does that say? Selenga helped us to beat AFC last time though he is yet to score again. Some respect please. Have heard some of our fans abusing players at the stadium and it really hurts. Just being in that field itself can be nerve-wrecking leave alone playing the way everybody would wish. If we can use that language in a blog I wonder what you would call them in a match atmosphere. Now that the players have declared that they have confidence in ZD where does that leave us as fans? Unless we don’t know our role but looks like the only option they have given us is to cheer them up no matter what the circumstances.

  • Agwa Kassam says:

    Good comment Dan..Wuon Pap i think many of us will have their most favorite players at GM but having to speak in public about bad players in our books as fans is really not the thing..

    I may also have questions just as many fans would about quality of some players but believe me Sirs in a group there are so many things for which we must bear collective responsibility. One of those is to accept that they’re all our players and cheer them up.

    At this point i will prompt a question..was Francis Ocholla no. 7 a bad player? but fans in many cases screamed for his dismissal! And what about Tony no 8 who fans always scream to be substituted but who turned out on Saturday and have always been a golden arrow in the midfield and scoring in stalemate matches!Its actually wrong to go public about specific players.. I would agree that some recruitment may appear to have been done to get rid of some players but still in this we must bear collective responsibility and live with it.

    Well it works in a group that people will give leaders sometime before hell break loose and ordinary members go for the neck of their leaders, its where we are now..we could only comment about the predictable future which is now with us here..ZD was going to have his way which was clearly ill intentioned but which would make all of us suffer including our coffers.

    Fans were gonna decide to keep up or ship out,it would take us just to where we are, the officials are bickering, the team is not performing,rumors of fake and genuine tickets,stories of fake jerzey and genuine ones, Addidas and legea Jerzeys.. everything is on free fall..reason if you don’t invest in the day when things are looking up you reap confusion and bankruptcy.

    At last, if God almighty will one day afford us humble leadership ready to interact with the real issues in this Family its then when we shall be unstopable but as long as we are willing to run behind politicians and hero worship them lets be prepared to go up and down for along time maybe for as long as we live..

  • Why are few stupid people making the most noise here. IF you got bornes to pick then look for another forum. My daily prayer is to have less and less morons everyday.

  • . . what makes a soccer lover chuck out of his house to go to the stadium? . . . . to watch game, I bet an entertaining match, . . . this season Gor has been shoddy on its approach and the policy has failed miserably with Zico at the helm, . . .he does same thing repeatedly expecting different outcomes! . . .this is the highest level of mediocrity . . . . . .so I finally put it this way: . . .when Zico finally leaves, my friends, relatives and many more will resume paying to watch Gor Mahia, but as at now, . . . .NO! . . .no attendance

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    Like I mentioned earlier, we are relaying so much on rumours. It is surprising to hear that the very players ZD has been wasting and having a fight with are claiming that they have full confidence in their coach. So who is fooling who here? Are we really sure of what we write here or some of us are hell bent to destroy the club. Others are even calling players recruited from other club rejects. Honestly it is not fair. We hear noise about the chairman refusing to give accountability. My million and one question is to give accountability to who? Gor has structures. Gor has legitimately elected officials by members. Gor normally hold AGM’s which I guess is due end of the season. To the best of my knowledge, issues of how the club has been run during the season are usually one of the agenda items. Why do we want to put the cart ahead of the horse? I don’t want to believe that some of you expect Rachier to be responding to your comments on this blog. That one is being brutally unrealistic. Let’s keep calm and time will certainly come for members to have their way. I detest the stone age behavior exhibited by unfortunately some people who claim to be Gor fans. For God and my club Kogallo.

  • wuonpap says:

    NOW ZD /KOSERO CONFIRMS WHAT WE HAVE ALWAYS SUSPECTED-GOR NOMALLY HOLDS AGMS WHICH HE GUESSES ARE DUE AT SEASON END.TAKE NOTICE OF THE WORD GUESS.DAN POINTS OUT THAT SELENGA MIGHT SCORE AGAIN AGAINST OUR INLAWS ,GO ON A DRY SPELL AND THEN CONTINUE DRAWING OVER 40K PER MONTH AS MASIKA LEAVES THE BACKLINE TO RESCUE POINTS FOR US.KENYANS DETEST FACTS AND THATS WHY WE ARE BLINDED BY EUPHORIA AND WISHFUL THINKING AS OPPOSED TO ANALYSING THE STATISTICS AVAILABLE.AFTER EACH AND EVERY MATCH EVERY PLAYER SHOULD BE RATED SIMPLY AGAINST A SCORE OF TEN AND THAT SHOULD FORM A BASIS OF ANY CONTRACTUAL TALKS.PLAYERS LIKE GATTUSO,JERRY,MASIKA,ELISHA,DUBE,MAKORI ,MUSA,NASIO,LAVATSA AND A FEW OTHERS ALWAYS PUT ALL THEIR EFFORTS ON THE PITCH BUT IT IS OBVIOUS THAT OTHERS ARE NOT UP TO TASK.ITS UP TO THE BENCH TO APPRAISE THESE PLAYERS AND PICK THE BEST FOR ANY MATCH.IF YOU ARE A KEEN ANALYST OF LOCAL SOCCER THEN YOU KNOW WHERE THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE COME FROM AS THE KPL TABLE HAS ALL THE FACTS.LETS CALL A SPADE A SPADE.FOR YET ANOTHER SEASON WE ARE GOING OUT THERE TO PLAY FOR PRIDE WITH ALL OUR LOYAL FANS& FINANCES AND SOME ONE TELLS US TO BE CALM.THE CULT OF MEDIOCRITY.

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    @wuonpap, I repeat, I guess because I am not and have never been privy to the agenda items of AGM’s. I doubt you have been either. However if by any chance you have, please share with the rest of us what is usually discussed. If you can’t be calm, then continue stoning every one you came across in the name of supporting your beloved club. Now that the players say they have no problem with the coach, I wonder what other romours you have up your sleeves. You are a learned grown up, if you cant be calm, then continue being violent. The choice is absolutely yours. For God and my club Kogallo

  • mwakio says:

    @kosero and Dan, all fans have right to raise their concerns and you can not stop us from speaking our minds. Gor does not belong to chairman or ZD.

  • Ja Thur gi ji says:

    Calm now, enough said lets all then come on Sunday. Who knows we may even surprise ingwe and ourselves. Whispers: if all is well(ie not injured or suspended) give me the following – Jerim,Nasio,C. Omondi, Masika,Mohamed, Moses (30), K. Omondi,Gatusso,Ochomo, Lavatsa, Moses (25)and barring injury second half fresh legs: Hadji for Moses(25),Makori(for lavatsa), Selenga (for Ochomo)

  • Dan says:

    Let’s all meet on Sunday and give our beloved team the necessary support. At least we have all raised our concerns whether the relevant persons will act on them is another issue. Let’s do it for the club and the players and let peace prevail on that day. As @Ja Thur gi ji says we might even surprise ourselves. Remember it’s a derby

  • Albert Kosero (Sofaset Branch - Kampala) says:

    @mwakio, what exactly are you reacting to? Who has stopped you from airing your views or even becoming violent. Absolutely no one. As I always say, since you are a learned adult please do as you wish. @Ja Thur gi ji, YES I support you on that. On a good day that is a very formidable squad capable of silencing the now noisy Kwach. They are really talking big. Wuonpap, Oduori12, Mwakio, Pundit and the rest of the bloggers, ceasefire!!. Calm, calm, calm. Let’s give this boys a chance. For God and my club Kogallo

  • James Lucas Odede Ndagwa says:

    Zico, ur were a good ambassaduer for gor but only as a player.We appreciate your efforts for taking us to position 2 last season but unfortunately, we are in a world that has no mercy for none performers…even great leaders listen to the noones in the society…we the fans have told u that u nid to build a 1st team then let them jel and know each other…this rotation (Liverpool style) made liverpool to stop playing champions league football..benitez didnt listen…quick one, roooney chica/drogba anelka/arse the ball boys/and more recently man city have all come up due to plaers knowing each other..anticipation and the like becomes easy…
