It is interesting how easy football players, coaches or managers quickly forget things.
I find it funny how when things go in the right direction for a certain team, praise is at the highest.
When Nasur Doka or a certain referee or top brass official says or does something that is remotely positive for a certain team, the praise is unrelenting.
Even when it is an injustice and a moral understanding is needed, people ignore it all.
When it turns on them though... noise.. drama.
I am referring to the noise being made by AFC Leopards about the venue change for their clash with Western Stima in the coming weekend.
When I saw the comments attributed to Jan Koops regarding the matter, I nearly choked on my lunch.
You would have thought that the venue change was a conspiracy against the club.
That Stima have basically deralied the club's plans to win the Premier League.
Or that Gor Mahia are involved.
This is the same Leopards outfit that beat Ulinzi Stars, the supposed owners of the same Stadium 2-0 at the ground earlier in the season.
Back then, they praised the grounds, the fan turnout, the sun, the moon, even the referee.
Now though, they hate the place and I dare say that if Leopards do not win over the weekend, there will be pandemonuim.
Stones with be thrown, placards carried and death threats given.
Just over a normal, beautiful football game.
Some of my friends who are Leopards supporters say that Stima want to make money, thus the move to Afraha.
What is the problem with Stima wanting to make money?
They are the home team, let them do what they want. As long as a game is played and according to the rules, then there is no worry.
Apparently there is, because Leopards want the match in Mumias instead.
Remember Congo United... Rangers
When I hear and read the comments on the venue change, I swiftly go back to Congo United at the end of the 2011 season and Rangers FC in the first leg.
Leopards won by four goals against Congo and 6-2 against a depleted Rangers that could not even field 15 players.
Congo and Rangers were on their knees, no money, no players, nothing and it was very obviuos that they did not need to travel all the way to Western Kenya.
But Leopards still took the match all the way to Mumias, fielded a strong team and gloated about winning by huge margins.
Sadly, they do not remember.. do they?
I smell Karma..
