Thank you, sir. Some ppl seem to think that only way to fix the prob is to fire the coach.

I say: Take a good look at the teams in that group! :!:

The group is not a difficult one. With the calibre of players we have, Naija should come out miles ahead of the rest.

We all know the problems facing our football today, corruption and organisation.

My friend: Show a bit of humility. :)

I have told you guys over and over again that the rest of Africa is not standing still either. That group will be no walkover and I wont be surprised the least bit if Senegal or Tunisia qualify

All over the world coaches are sacked regularly. And I mean REAL coaches. Why would anybody regret the sacking of a pseudo coach...

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

Guys:
I keep telling you this but you choose to ignore me. Fine!

However, please be warned that a change of coach might not be helpful here. Gathering the best stars in the world might not be helpful here.

The team that qualifies will do so on merit because they worked hardest together. I guarantee you that Senegal will keep the same team together for the next few months. They will possibly train together in France, and will only get better. Tunisia also smell blood and will work with their compliment of players.

Haba, how come you have a change of heart on this group? How come? Were you not one of those who always believed that nIgeria ordinarily is better than everyone else and thus every loss must be the coach's fault?

I was definitely wrong.

It looks like this local coach was definitely set up to fail.

I think sometimes we focus on the wrong things. If we had been asked about the outcome of this game two months ago I am certain that many would not have been so mad with a 3-4 loss to Senegal. IMO, the current anger emanating from this game is only a residue from the earlier home game when Nigeria failed to take the three points that had been expected. Now, Nigeria has been forced to try to win away games that ordinarily should be very difficult for us to win particularly against very difficult opponents.

I agree. It comes down to a lack of preparation - plain and simple. The team that was played in Senegal was a much stronger team than the one that played in Egypt and possibly the one against Tunisia. Only problem is that the team did not prepare properly because it was tinkered with too much.

My view about all this IC vs LC is changing slightly. Whereas in the past I would blame the coach automatically for such a loss, I am now convinced that there is no substitute for good preparation.. If you cannot get a core group of players to practice and play together a few times, you certainly will underachieve. A lesser talented but better prepared team can challenge a more talented but unprepared team. This is why I think Abdullahi was set up to fail.

YUJAM:

You know -- I am a bit convinced that the FC v IC debate is misguided and because of its media hype so manyy people merely repeat the media themes. If the hypothesis is carefully tested we wil find that what defines a good or bad coach has very little to do with the simple divide of FC or IC. The task is finding what exactly is the defining criteria for a good or bad coach in Nigeria but I am fairly certain that it has nothing to do with being an FC or IC. I say this because I have taken the pains to calculate and compare the stats of both groups and there is no statistical significance between results obtained by the two. Academically, this calls for a search of more revealing variables. Unfortunately most of us are not keen on searching for the truly defining variables. Instead we regurgitate the same IC v FC debate repeatedly.
