Re: Something Remarkable Is Happening in African Football

its not the language. It was Keshi that made me realize something. WC is game of more heart than technique or tactic, much much more so than club football. Club football is about who has the best team, tactic, coach execution. The world cup, heart and want-it-more matters. A coach that feels that c...

Re: WEAH MEETS DAD AFTER WIN

All Liberians are African Americans; that is probably the one most important factor being missed here. Liberia had 7 African American presidents after it was formed in pre colonial days. Don’t forget that the country Liberia was formed by returning slaves from America. Liberian senate approved $150...

Re: Something Remarkable Is Happening in African Football

If our football handlers are smart, they will focus on getting our coaches up to speed.. we do not need FCs to win golden bronze, get knocked out of the group stages etc.. Let us fail with our own. Cisse has been coach of Senegal since 2015. He is only 46 years old, improving , learning etc . but n...

Re: Africa(CAF) is the best performing confederation so far at this WC!

Out of 13 games played they have won 6, lost 4 and drawn 3. Goals for 18 goals against 15. Stats to come later for each confederation It cannot be. Not too long ago some on CE posted how CAF teams were lazy and African teams were bad at football. :twisted: If Vancity was a stock-market pundit, you ...

Re: Peseiro's evaluation of SE has become clearer......

We are back to wanting to fire a coach Not because of his competitive record But because of something he allegedly SAID. No wonder we are in complete disarray. Don’t you think it makes a big difference if he had an admirable record while saying what he did as opposed to the less than flattering rec...

Re: We Got A Learner and They Got This

Can't believe there's so much uproar over friendly games. Ghana and Cameroun struggled in most of their friendlies before the world cup and now seem to be getting it right. Germany, Iran, and Costa Rica lost their opening games only to rebound in their second games. Give Peseiro time. I'm seen more...

The 2013 SE under Keshi that won the AFCON were the least talented set of players we assembled save for a few like Victor Moses, Mikel Obi and to some lesser extent Emenike, yet they beat some of more touted favorites to win the AFCON.

Re: The Nigerian Coaching Conondrum…

Coaching is not the main problem. Countless coaches and same result. The problem is with the players and their willingness to give their all. See my thread. Only a person who has never coached or led before can say something this stupid. In addition to tactics and selecting players, motivating play...

guys, i don't know but terms like RFA just don't sit well with me anymore. it's 2022. The world has moved past such derogatory of referring to people as a group. I kept wincing in pain and disgust as i read it over and over. I think we can do better, and we should do better

It doesn't matter what it is. Like I have always said, if your players cannot trap ball there is only so far the team can go..

Coaching is not our primary problem. It is however the easiest thing to change so perhaps we keep going back to the coach.
