As we soak into this year’s Startimes Uganda Premier League, there is just so much to anticipate. But after two rounds of action for all teams, what are the takeaway points?
 
KCCA walking the talk: Coach Mike Mutebi’s giveaways in his preseason talk hinged on the intentional desire for his side to play their way. His fascination with attacking football leaves KCCA overly unique in their surroundings. Two games, two wins so far.  Importantly an unchanged philosophy of attacking football prevails.

Left-back Mustapha Kizza is exercising a paring back and refining of his gifts. The youngsters’ ingenuity is irresistibly admirable. He has technically won them their six points by scoring the only goal against Busoga United on Tuesday in Njeru. Still, he assisted Allan Okello’s winner against debutants Kyetume.
 
Meanwhile, Mutebi’s confidence in young players will definitely not go without pressure from the result of demanding teams like Vipers.
 
Debutants learning on the job:  There is a registered feeling it will not come easy for the debutants in the cut and thrust competition of the topflight campaign. That is usual business anyway, although there are rare cases like Mbarara City’s impressive run last season as they managed to finish third.
 
Wakiso Giants and Kyetume share parity as both teams have each won one and lost one game this campaign. Busoga United, on the other hand, are completely misfiring. Two games and two losses don’t make well for a team with ambitions!
 
SC Villa’s “bromance” with night games:  For the fans, this should go on schedule; SC Villa will have all their home games at Namboole played at night. It sounds unusual, right?

After successfully bidding for this arrangement, Villa has disrupted the establishment. Interestingly it is working especially for their fans. The club claimed that they wanted to accommodate fans that are so busy during the day.
 
They have so far registered mixed results here losing to debutants Kyetume 1-0 and humbling Mbarara City 3-1 on Wednesday.
 
Firing strikers: from two games there is already a line of players quick to show intent with Bidco’s  Deogratius Ojok Wakiso’s Karim Ndugwa and Mbarara City’s Paul Mucureezi all on two goals.
