AFC, even if you bring 'The Special One', K'Ogalo will still be the best

It is interesting, but rather sad, how a defeat by a better K'Ogalo team has led to the fallout at the Ingwe den.

The fallout seems to have forced head coach Stewart Hall to throw in the towel.

As I said before, K'Ogalo is a good team and sides lose and win. If losing to K'Ogalo is such an anathema, then Ingwe should be ready to sack the new coach in a few months' time as Gor Mahia will beat you, again in the next derby.

Having coaches handle a team before or during pre-season and run them through their paces, is a more effective way of giving a coach enough work and realistic targets ahead of a season.

That is why both K'Ogalo's coach Ze Maria and Ingwe's Stewart Hall had their work cut out since they were around from the pre-season to the beginning of the league, hence, they had no excuses whatsoever for any unexpected results.

Ingwe would have dealt with any (in)discipline issue therein and let Stewart handle the team until the end of the season. He looked like a coach who had good ideas and desire to win, and that could have made Ingwe compete favourably with K'Ogalo and other league contenders.

With his departure in a huff, Ingwe has lost a good tactician and so has the Kenyan Premier League.

Monica wrote a good article last week on how KPL has been using some repugnant clauses of the law to try and stifle Gor Mahia and AFC's rights to have their own TV broadcast deal.

Like I said in a past article, this is a God-sent opportunity, which the two clubs, who enjoy the largest following in the country, cannot afford to lose.

Even if it means refusing to be part of the deal and opt for a TV blackout until commercial justice prevails, then so be it.

I mean, who watches KPL matches more than the supporters of Ingwe and K'Ogalo? Who gets watched by majority of viewers, if not the two teams?

If the two clubs cannot get about 50 per cent of the contracted value of any collective TV rights in the top tier, with the other teams sharing the other 50 per cent, then a collective deal ikaye (is a dud)!

Let the TVs televise matches between other teams as we pursue our own rights.

However, before this, the two clubs have several renowned lawyers among their leadership and supporters.

I am sure a legal way can be found quickly.
