The Grand Stand View

There is no understating the need for premier league football clubs that continually develop talent and afford lesser known quantities a platform to grow and display their talents on the elite stage, Jomo Cosmos have long been heralded as a club that give players a chance and that proud tradition seems set to follow now that they are back home amongst the big boys; the club has not enjoyed their best period of years and they will be praying for a turn in fortunes now that they have returned to the level they used to call home. Jomo Sono is a great judge of talent and a very experienced man manager who seems to know how to get players to play above themselves under his guidance, The Black Prince now needs to be surrounded by the playing personnel and backroom staff to ensure that his club can stay in the premier league and gradually return to being the top 8 fixtures they used to be. The time away from the elite division has afforded the club an opportunity to rebuild upon a more solid foundation and their young contingent has a future super star or two hidden within it if Jomo’s eye for talent is anything to go by, while they would do very well to survive the relegation dog-fight, Jomo Cosmos should have enough scrap within them to fight till the last point in their bid to ensure their survival and that would be a good showing for their 1st season back in the premier division.
