Simon Pierre knows the Congolese

Gor Mahia’s Camerounian defender Simon Pierre is under no illusions about how difficult the match against AC Leopards will be.

“It is a big game for us and we are looking forward to it. They are well known in the continent and have a number of Congolese internationals and very good foreign players in their side.” he said to supersport.com

Pierre think the club can benefit from his familiarity with Congolese players.

“I know them because we share a lot in terms of our football back in Cameroon and they are feared by many. Many will say that they are the favourites to go through but I know that on our day we can beat any side at any time.”

Pierre also called upon fans to turn out in large numbers and get behind the team.

“We will be confident and hope that the fans come out in numbers to support us, because we are capable of doing well against them,” he added.

Speaking of filling the stadium, Gor Mahia fans have started a social media campaign (#OperationJazaStadi) to encourage fans to turn out in large numbers. The number of Gor Mahia fans attending matches has been plummetting over the past two years with the club generating less than half the revenue it used to generate from big matches.

Against CNaPs, Gor Mahia were saved by the fact that they did not concede a goal at home. Against AC Leopards, keeping a clean sheet at home will be just as important as Pierre indicates.

“We need a clean sheet. It will boost us if we can keep a clean sheet. It will give us a good chance if we keep the clean sheet,” he added.

Spying on Gor Mahia training sessions

AC Leopards sent an advance team of three officials to Nairobi early this week to monitor the proceedings and the party has been monitoring Gor Mahia’s training sessions ahead of the Sunday tie according the daily Nation. This author does not understand why Gor Mahia’s opponents would be allowed to watch them train.  The match will be broadcast live on SuperSport

  1. KPL tittering at the brink of dissolving, if the statement attributed to by FIFA deputy secretary Markus Kattner is anything to go by. The odds are stark against KPL in regards to what the FIFA are insinuating about the membership and affiliations. And considering how our courts lack independency through executive interference.am anticipating lope sided ruling today. It will be avery sad day in Kenya if the court will rule infavour of fkf zombies.
    KPL have done their their best in bringing football to where it is today, the league is organized, resulting into influx of foreign players, sponsors are coming in, and then nyambweha in charge? GOD help us

    1. Big or small name,Kogalo must have faith in themselves and play as a unit. These Congolese will know that this is the home of Kogalo. With prayers we will be victors.

  3. Surely as Bob wondered; if AC Leopards are that good then why set 3 spies on us? We as Gor Mahia shall not be intimidated come what may. Whether they are 99 or 96 we just care the least. If I may ask why only 99? Why couldn’t they come 250 or 1000?

    Anyway that is their problem. We remain solid as team Gor Mahia. Let those with their ugali and fish bring it along. Let those with sweet potatoes and sour milk bring it along. Let those with nyoyo and nyuka do likewise. Guys let us troop to the slaughter house and cheer as the beast is slayed. Sociate toboka sociate ebisolo, outi kolala soki ya candidate nabiso Gor Mahia K’Ogalo. Tiu…tiu.

  4. Kogalo will do well… being beaten will not be an issue. Gor is still on the recovery path and i’m sure in two years time we will be knocking at the doors of knock stages. We have a good coach and the ‘wenye gor’ seem to have understood what performance is all about. Give it your best. Leopards will surely tell us which stage of the ladder Gor is in. This team has money and is well organised. This is the kind of competition Gor deserves.
    On my way to nyayo. I also suggest that the Gor increases gate charges.
