The one thing I totally despise about Kenyan football is the fans.
Forget KFF or FKL or FKF.. the football fans suck the most.
When you land in Kenya, the first thing you are confronted with, football wise is the deluded Kenyan football fan.
Clueless, blindness, lopsideded but largely, deluded.
I totally hate it.
When you ask about the country's clubs, they will talk about Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards. Fullstop.
You would think that they play themselves all year and win all the trophies on offer.
And if you try ask why there are no any other clubs, they will look at you and then talk in their mother tongues.
If you try ask why they do so, they will laugh at you.
Woe unto you if you jeer back, they will beat you.
Kenya Breweries and others
If you decide to overstep the Gor-AFC barrier you will find out that:
Kenya Breweries (Tusker FC) have won the league many times as well as many other grand trophies.
As have Mumias Sugar, Oserian, Sofapaka, SoNy Sugar.
Even Ulinzi Stars have done so...
While the two giants have not been there in decades.
Biggest in East Africa
The tag of biggest league, derby, players in East Africa usually makes me cringe in my shoes.
Because in reality, it is not.
I will not name names or use explanatives, but all I can say as a person who has lived outside the country for a long time is that it is not.
We are not even second, or third or fourth.. we are nowhere.
We are only top in our minds.
I am not here to diss or hurt.. No no.. Just speaking my mind.
When and if Kenyans stop thinking that they are the best in the world, in Africa or even East Africa, maybe, just maybe, we will be better in the game.
We have to agree that Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards are not top class clubs or that we are not better than the Uganda Cranes or even Taifa Stars.
It is a mystery how we think that we can host Cecafa, AFCON, World Cup and the Olympics, but ask a Kenyan fan.
