Re: The day Enugu Rangers took on Nigeria's relay team

CIC, I'm not sure Sam Onyeaka was faster than a prime Emeka Onyedika... Sam Onyeaka 'arrived' at Rangers 1975(?)...by then Emeka Onyedika had been 'slowed' by a nagging hamstring issue...

Re: Pinnick: Desperate Nigerian coaches want NFF to sack Roh

Why would i fire a coach that has more wins under has belt than defeats? A coach that is 4-5 games away from surpassing Westerhoffs wins for Nigeria. This is like spanking a Kid for placing 3rd in a class of 24 in a school he couldn't gain admission to 2 years in a row! Rebuilding is a gradual proc...

Re: Super Falcons deserve same pay as Super Eagles - Desire

The argument is not as simple as most people are making here. First of all, whether it his about equal pay or equity in pay, there is a point to be made for the Falcons.

So Father Tiko... Would you consider a two-tier allowance for the Nigerian Olympic contingent, according to gender? Does anyone know whether this is actually the case? Its not my 'consideration' at all... I'm simply trying to make sense of the 'nonsense'... My humble opinion is all athletes on nati...

No, you are definitely reaching, you are talking about what Keshi told players in private, but you do not know what Rohr tells his players in private, all you know is what he said in public. Which is irrelevant and he has his reasons as far as deflecting pressure off his players etc, however I'm pr...

Re: Pinnick: Desperate Nigerian coaches want NFF to sack Roh

For fairness, a coach's regime ought to be assessed in the context of the coach's working conditions... E.g. If Rohr went to AFCON 2019 with a squad composed of solely home-based players, and made R16, Rohr would have merited a national honour... Or if he was being owed a backlog of wages, I'd be t...

Re: Rhor shows off his Bronze medal..lmao

I've said it before, and I'll keep repeating it: Nigeria's record at AFCON condemns Nigeria to celebrate only title wins at AFCON Any coach who portrays otherwise lacks the requisite ambition to coach Nigeria.
