In Summary
  • It is really hurting that Bandari has been very wasteful in front of goal with a blunt striking force which to me should be a major concern
  • It is time the management thinks of bringing on board an accomplished goal poacher who can bring the balance we badly need
  • Bandari technical team must therefore up their game and have different attacking options since teams have mastered their tactics

I am not a very proud Bandari Football Club fan today as I pen my column which has now become a must read for not only Bandari stakeholders but any keen Kenyan football follower.

Just a reminder to those who may read malice in my write-up, I am not here to pamper my beloved club even when they are not impressive, thus the popular saying spare the rod, spoil the child. It is very factual that Bandari has been doing very well both on the local and continental scene, with some blistering displays to say the least. And Bandari fans are loving this.

I therefore remain hopeful that this will continue, the same way I also hope that major silverware is no longer a distant reality. However, it is really hurting that Bandari has been very wasteful in front of goal with a blunt striking force which to me should be a major concern.

Our striking force has been wanting, a major reason why we have been chasing games most of the time after conceding first and squandering clear goal scoring opportunities.

I think it would be prudent to start a game on the front foot because this eases the pressure on players allowing them to settle and control play, but Bandari for a reason better known to them have been very comfortable conceding first.

The continental games have exposed our major weaknesses, cases in point, the away games in Tunisia and Horoya respectively, where we conceded early creating pressure which is not acceptable for a team of Bandari’s ambitions.
