That Musonye, CECAFA secretary general, has come out hitting at newly appointed Stars coach was quite predictable. Our participation in CECAFA is somewhat important for Harambee stars’ shine.  That said, Musonye, a Kenyan, doesn’t feel our participation in the tournament is of any consequence.

That right there doesn’t sit well with me. To be ruled out by your own kind as of being “non-grata” goes a long way in reflecting our current FIFA standing. It’s appalling. Imagine the negative vibe that resonates across East Africa with these utterances. Perhaps Michel should have used this as a chance to test drive this broke machine we call our national team. Maybe give a shot to the players that have left a print on the 2011-2012 TPL season. Anyway, this is why he is boss. The decision is his to make, leave it to the experts. Quit the fussing for a minute.  I’d volunteer to give Sam Nyamweya the number to Ndung’u- Central Bank‘s governor, but before that, I pray he stumbles on a duffle bag stacked with a cool 80 M Kshs for Michel’s pay, on his way home.

In other not so pleasant news, Sofapaka‘s new boss has axed four players from his squad asking they be released “without any conditions”. Reason? Collins Okoth alias ‘Gattusso’, Kanamuli Kapilima, Hashim Mukhwana  and Hakim Ssekumba were taking e-courses from the Joey Barton academy (sic). Poor form and indiscipline. Then again, what’s with AFC, Weche and Koops? Strange. They keep that up and  its sayonara to the league.

Matters English, Arsenal showed they are packed with some steel after a late equalizer against City. League leaders Chelsea come calling next. Maybe then, we will tell the elasticity of the Gunners’ pressure points. Questions are being raised about the defensive lines of both Manchester sides. Not to mention Vidic’s injury and City’s crumbling against Villa in the Capital One cup. As for Liverpool, well… Oh, and what do we have here? John George Terry quit the national team. Joy for Chelsea, blow for Hodgson

Chelsea’s no. 26 is the only English player to make the team in the all star squad for the 2006 FIFA world cup, has been UEFA’s club defender of the year in ’05, ’08 and ’09 and PFA Players’ player of the year in ’05. Sufficient reasons to understand Hodgson’s anguish. JT has managed 76 appearances for the Three Lions with 6 goals serving as skipper. Admittedly he has lost a bit of his old self in recent times, but you all know what it is that is said about class and form. Even then, for whatever reason, one Wayne Bridge must be smiling goofily within himself.

Juventus should run away with the Serie A “bride” after an unbeaten run of 43 games. It’s no mean feat given that they are making light work of seasoned champions-the Milan clubs. Add to that the lengthy ban their manager is serving then digest their potential and mental strength. Barca are still the team to beat in La Liga. Bayern Munich seem to have learnt that Dortmund are here to stay, and are taking no chances with the Bundesliga. It’s a wrap. Shukrani.
