ukwala,

Just saw the penalty save by Bonsu. The ref blew the call on that one. It should have been re-taken after Sunshine Stars scored from the rebound. Rangers escaped there. The referee whistled the player for encroachment and gave an indirect kick to Rangers. However, the replay shows that players from both teams encroached and thus the correct call should have been a re-take. Well, Rangers got the reprieve there.

EII, I've not seen it yet but if that be the case, it's possible the ref was trying to make amends for his mistake.

One of the great improvement in the league that is that the league table is looking more like league tables do. By that I mean the gap between the better teams and the poor teams is wide. There was as time when the gap was so thin because every team basically won at its home. This year, it is different. The better teams can go on longer unbeaten stretches and away wins are not as rare. This, IMHO, is an improvement. There are still complaints about bad officiating but those complaints appear to be lessening. I wonder if I am the only one who has noticed these things.

EII, correct observation and no, you are not the only one who has noticed the improvements. I wonder why though as I can't think of any specific initiative of the LMC. It could be due to the 2-group format but I am struggling to find the relationship!!

Bendel 2 - 1 Rangers.
Our 13 match unbeaten run ends in Benin as 10-Man Rangers lose to Bendel Insurance.
The ref showed our striker Seka Pascal a straight red in the 20th minute for supposedly kicking an opponent, so we played for 70mins with 10 men. I hope it is not what I am thinking but I'll hold judgment until I see the incident.
Good thing is that we are still top of the table.
Up Rangers......we fear no foe.

Great result. The way I'm thinking, that red card was well deserved and the referee should have awarded a penalty no matter where the crime was committed! I commend Bendel Insurance for their wonderful display which many described as a near replica of Brazil's wonderful 1982 world cup team. The only sad thing was that the match ended 2-1 instead of the deserved scoreline of 6-1. On to the next match :mrgreen: .

Haha! My good friend comrade YemiB, how market? Did you see Enugu II's comment about how the NPFL table was looking like a proper league table now with more away wins and a wider gap between the good and poor teams? Well, I didn't tell him it was because the team responsible for 'tactical' was chilling in division 2 :taunt: :taunt:.
Please bring us news from that side, abeg!

Worst defeat of the season... :oops:
But at least the NPFL reversed the Seka card.

Some consolation, pity the stolen points cannot be retrieved.
Where is comrade YemiB to tell us how the red card was well deserved???

Bad day at the office but we still top the table with 6 points after 16 games (out of 22).
We are Rangers and we fear no foe.

Gotti,

Seriously? The player was sent off for a trumped up incident which the referee did not witness. To think that it probably cost the team the game because the player was disqualified early. Hope the referee gets sanctioned for that.

Ukwala,

But it smells like Rangers are embarking on a 3-consecutive games defeat with Aba looming this weekend.
