I don’t watch a lot of European football. We know more about what happens over there than what goes on in our own Africa. This is regrettable, but unfortunately, nothing a small time weekly column get do to change at this juncture.
I did however get information that a club that was almost relegated last season won the league in England this season. Amazing! The team did not even have to spend trillions of currency to buy the title.
Some prophetic fellow apparently made a whole lot of pounds by placing a bet that this team would actually win the league.
I like the thought of having money so I’m going to take my wife’s bread money and place a bet on a team
that will almost get relegated this year! Jomo Cosmos will win the ABSA Premiership next season and I will collect a sum of money that the president will not be able to read out.
You can wipe that smurk off your face, it will happen. All the owner has to do is to get himself a coach.
The owner of Jomo Cosmos must get himself a coach that was once fired by one of the big clubs. Death robbed us of Bibey Mutombo who would have been the ideal candidate. Therefore, it will come to pass that Histro Stoichkov will be hired as coach of Cosmos and the world will watch with wonder as Ezenkosi lift the ABSA Premiership with Platinum Stars faltering in pursuit.
Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates will have no say in where the title goes next season.
We all know Bra Jomo is good at getting cheap raw talent. Having given up the coaching post he will
have more time to go into Africa and buy a talented striking midfielder and a combative defensive midfielder who will remind all of Tinashe Nengomasha. Week in, week out we shall watch and think that Stoichkov and his troops will falter but they won’t.
The 23 fans that follow Jomo Cosmos no matter will dance and sing all through next season. The team bus driver will be an integral part as Bra Jomo has always been good at integrating duties at Cosmos. Of course Histro will play down the possibility of Cosmos winning even when it becomes too obvious that the team is going to win it.
Stoichkov has always been a humble man. The notion that foreign coaches are failing our clubs will be dispelled once and for all. National team coaches will realise that they are players in other clubs as well.
Cosmos will contribute more players to the national team than Golden Arrows, Chippa United, Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars combined .Charlton Mashumba will be second in the top goal scorer’s chart. Player of the Season will come from Jomo Cosmos next season.
It is not as farfetched as it might look in this newspaper right.
Football has no set formula. If you score more than the team in the allocated time you win and if you win more times than the other teams you win the league.
So next season I’m going with Jomo Cosmos. Who’s with me?
