There is a old saying that if it isn’t broke then don’t fix it -something that I fully subscribe to when it comes to Chelsea’s backline. This clamor in the media that Conte needs to upgrade Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso as wing-backs seems shortsighted and without any real reason – given this is the team that won the...
NFF
Bafana Bafana of South Africa came to Nigeria for the opening 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier, beat the Super Eagles at home and deservedly grabbed the three points at stake against a poor, gutless and disorganised host.   It says a lot that a first ever competitive loss to South Africa – on home soil, for that matter – was...
Mfon Udoh
The numbers do not lie. For all strikers, it is about the numbers. As they say in football circles - the goals do the talking.   Mfon Udoh's brace in a 2-1 victory over Abia Warriors last Sunday in Calabar, was reported in the media as routine goals in a home win. But those well taken goals moved Enyimba's number 10, nearer...
Cheick Tioté
There were plenty of people looking for a way to get Cheick Tioté into China four months ago, even though he'd fallen way down the pecking order at Newcastle United. Agent Christopher Atkins, known for his links with Chinese clubs, says Tioté was 'offered' to him — though seemingly by an intermediary with no legitimate connection, looking to cash in on...
Asamoah Gyan
"Sometimes it can take until someone has finished their career to be fully appreciated." This view was expressed by Michael Carrick earlier this year when he called for Wayne Rooney to be given more respect for his achievements at Manchester United. He might as well been talking about Asamoah Gyan - a perfect example of a player whose contributions are chronically...
Bafana Bafana, Super Eagles, Stuart Baxter, Gernot Rohr
Regardless of what Gernot Rohr may have said, attempting to deflect criticisms from his players, the eleven on the pitch at any time let him down in the defeat to South Africa. Whether he cares about records or not, Gernot Rohr should know that victory or defeat against any South African football team is the de facto barometer for rating...
Super Eagles, Nigeria
On Saturday, Nigeria's Super Eagles will once again go out to prove that the resurgence about the team has not been largely just on paper and a media circus, when they face old foes Bafana Bafana at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in a 2019 Afcon qualifier. Nothing about this game will be left to chance and the Coaches and...
Luciano Spalletti
In a welcome contrast to last summer, Inter announced the arrival of their new coach early this time around, officially hiring Luciano Spalletti on a two-year deal today. After being linked with Antonio Conte and Diego Simeone, there's little point denying that the pick is seen as underwhelming by part of the Nerazzurri fanbase, especially as the Tuscan coach (he's...
Carl Ikeme
For a body that issues a Press Release when a member of staff is conferred a chieftaincy title or holds a thanksgiving service for same, you'd think that the Nigeria Football Federation's communication team will hasten to any of its social media platform to celebrate a foot soldier, who puts himself in the firing line when called upon for national duty. On...
Wenger
For the first time in 21 years, Arsene Wenger has guided Arsenal to a finish outside the industrious top four places after finishing fifth this past season, one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool in what can be considered as one of the most entertaining finishes to a Premier League season. For the size and magnitude of Arsenal Football Club, this past...
