In Summary
  • We face Kariobangi Sharks in the GOtv Shield final in 10 days time in a fixture that should at the very least redeem what has largely been a mediocre campaign at the den. 
  • Pardon me, mediocre is an understatement. Actually, this season has been a disaster. 
  • From the way the process of signing of players was made at the start of the campaign, to the embarrassing defeats at the hands of some very average sides, to that missed opportunity to play Everton FC, this – indeed – has, yet again, been a season to forget.

We face Kariobangi Sharks in the GOtv Shield final in 10 days time in a fixture that should at the very least redeem what has largely been a mediocre campaign at the den. 

Pardon me, mediocre is an understatement. Actually, this season has been a disaster. 

From the way the process of signing of players was made at the start of the campaign, to the embarrassing defeats at the hands of some very average sides, to that missed opportunity to play Everton FC, this – indeed – has, yet again, been a season to forget.

And if you think that was all, the club has also had three coaches this season alone, including a European coach who came in from Syria and was in charge for a couple of games, then shoved out because he’d apparently “failed the trials.”

All these tabulates to an administrative failure, a charade of sorts, explaining best why the club is currently placed in the unfamiliar bottom half of the SportPesa Premier League standings.

Come to think of it, it’s unimaginable to conceive what would have been if Robert Matano hadn’t showed up.

Come to think of it, some behind the scenes events and the poor performances from the first team this term should be enough to convince our legislators to enact a law that ensures only those with a great understanding and passion for this beautiful game end up in management.

Let’s hold on to that thought, even though we shall revisit.

Kariobangi Sharks; I love the name, and their slogan too, ‘We are Sharks.’  

It is meant to instill some sort of fear in the opponent.

We all know a shark has never been man’s friend, but then, all this shouldn’t intimidate anyone, let alone AFC Leopards Sports Club.

Give it to them though, Sharks have enjoyed an incredible first season in top flight football.
