That is the life of the club I support.
When you support a smaller club ( Which the City Stars are not), you expect one of many things.
Either, you expect them to punch above their weight, stay where they are or go down.
Those are the three permutations you have to live within.
For a club like City Stars and the potential it has though, it should not be like that.
Relegation, like it is right now, should not be a thought.
We have a good base of players and always seem to attract good coaches.
Then we have a support base in Kawangware and a place we can call home.
We are not badly off for a Nairobi club.
Thing is, we are not sure who we are, or rather, the leadership does not know.
I know that we are better than a feeder club for Gor Mahia and can hold our own if we want.
But, do the people in-charge feel the same?
Last season, we were nearly taken over by a group of investors who have overseen the revival of the once great Nakuru AllStars.
Why did we turn down the offer to grow and be better.. which we would have.
City Stars as a club have stagnated. They are not sure where they belong, but the league table suggests that they are a lowly club.
Next season and the season after, we will find it increasingly difficult to survive in the league because teams are getting better and better, and others will come that are better equipped than we are.
They are raising the bar day by day and lifting the standards.
Where will we be then.. How will we adapt to the changes.. We will be punching above our weights by then, considering we are now a lowly club.
I wonder what the future holds.
