Gor Mahia Has So Much To Learn From Simba

All eyes,this weekend will be on the eagerly anticipated encounter between Tanzania's footballing kingpins Simba fc and Yanga.A win for the former will open a seven-point lead and, somehow,rubber-stamp their crown as the country's unmatchable soccer wizards.

That is just part one of the club's all-round overhaul.A club that,just some four or five years back,were not as big a name as Kenya's Gor Mahia.A club that could not triumph in the Sportpesa Supercup(even when playing at home).

Right now just winning Tanzania's top league is an undeperfomance for them; they want to play against Africa's big boys,they want the TP Mazembes, the Al Ahlys and and the Zamaleks.

A team that has upped it's professionalism to rob Gor Mahia of incredible talents like Meddie Kagere and Joash Onyango.The latter has gone on to display some wonderful performances on the continental stage and romour has it that top continental clubs are in pursuit of his signature.

On the other hand,Gor Mahia is a totally different tale.A club that was at one time showing the potential of at least fighting for continental glory.Yet the club's disorganization has seen it,for yet another time,strech it's beging bowl to the public.

Patrick Matasi is being linked with a move to join fellow Kenyan Francis Kahata in shaping the Dar es Salaam-based club's history.He says that he will not hesitate to terminate his deal with St.Georges because Simba as of now is the finest East African club.

Sometimes you have to appreciate your competitors' achievements to succeed in life.The Ambrose Rachier-led management should look at Simba for benchmarking.To see what it is that they are not doing right.Otherwise we can forget any dream the club ever had of making itself great.
