After being struck by Namibia in Windhoek, Kenya's Harambee Stars take to the pitch tomorrow playing more seasoned team Guinea in Nairobi. My pessimism tells me these guys will be creamed again as we continue in our rag-tag approach to the game. I understand the warring parties of KFF are planning their own arrangements on how to have the game held. They're busy preparing tickets and even giving advance tickets.
Beyond redemption, I pray we don't get stuffed too much. I'll also hope that our brothers will keep a cool head and not walk out of the stadium given the greed shown by the KFF officials -who up to now I can't say who runs what. As for the purported officials, may the wrath of our forefathers burn your sissy-a***s into obscurity !
As for those of us who love the silver screen & the beautiful game, the action starts tomorrow. While most European leagues finished early, the game is fast becoming too clogged with tournaments, making the players suffer fatigue and exhaustion.
Some European powerhouses will put forward great teams but that's just on paper. On the pitch, it will be a different story and thus said, I expect an upset or two along the way.
But all things being constant,the trend will be the same with the winner being a defensive boring team. Any bets on who this can be ?
