If you're interested in Gor Mahia's under-the-radar stories, here are a few you shouldn't miss.
Gor Mahia have been handed yet another transfer ban, which could prevent them from signing new players in the next three transfer windows. This ban is the result of a debt owed to Nigerian Jackson Owusu in the amount of KSH. 3,321,000. Given Gor Mahia's financial difficulties, clearing Owusu's debt would be difficult, so it will be interesting to see how they go about it.
Gor Mahia will benefit greatly from the return of their key midfielder, John Ochieng, after the international break. Despite missing Gor Mahia's league opener against KCB, which Gor won 2-1, Ochieng played a part in Gor Mahia's super cup match against Tusker. Ochieng has established himself as a tough defensive midfielder for Gor Mahia, and his goal is to help Gor Mahia dominate the midfield. Here's a rundown of how important Ochieng is to Gor Mahia.
On October 15th, Gor Mahia will face Sudan's Al Ahly Merowe; the away match was supposed to take place in Sudan, but it appears that will not be the case; instead, Gor Mahia will play Al Ahly in Egypt's Suez Stadium. The last time Gor played in Continental Football, some of their key players were banned, so we should hope that they can successfully represent us this season.
