  1. Congrats boys for a job well done…Lets take a deserved rest then strengthen appropriately for CAF…Its been a terrific journey together

  2. Well done players and TB. Let EC plan properly for 2019 and get Ker the players he wants, a G.K what about unsettled-Ian Otieno, a central defender-“King” David or similar quality, a central midfielder-Teddy Akumu or Aucho, 2 strikers-real need for sharpening here. To the 3 lakeside governors please do something about the seating / stands at Kisumu stadium to attract more fans. The attendance for tickets @300/600 was disappointing. GMFC is really losing out on a lot of revenue yet it speaks volumes if 2 governors can attend a league match. Success, especially at CAF level, is a surebet for wooing fans back. Consistent success converts fans to members who if treated fairly become the revenue base for the club.

  3. Congrats team, technical bench and the office. It has been a concerted effort for the entire Gor family.
    We shouldn’t lose focus, lets aim for an improved performance at the continent level

  4. Well done…all the best as we tackle Africa in 2018.My 5 key ingredients for success.
    1.proper recruitment of players
    2.early and thorough preparations.
    3.sound structures to deal with players welfare.
    4.additional sponsorship to cater for the additional expenses of competing in africa.as well as players recruitment.
    5.bringing fans back to the stadium…jaza. stadii

  5. Gor Mahia win the league and we only have 7 comments here as if it is nothing. Contrast this with when we lose a single game. Hell breaks lose
