etun ti Bere u Don start again. did u see the game. please if u didn't see the game don't imply what was not. kastina equalised 1-1 just 2 minutes after being red carded does that mean the ref helped them, kano led 2-1 around 60 minutes and the home team made it 2-2 on the 96 minute
and i vnt seen a report that it was a penalty.

can't home teams equalise in the dying minutes again?

2 late penalties in the space of 6 minutes for the home team.
Ridiculous

I think your suggestion is great because even China made a rule that any player being purchased above a certain amount, the club buying the player must pay a certain percentage to the government.

with this policy being in place, it will aid the sponsorship of local teams by those corporations who go abroad to sponsor

I think dis is more of a financial regulation policy dan corporate sponsorship....good point anyways!

In Nigeria only the ref determines who wins and who draws a game......Its safe to say that's why we're always ridiculously poor going to the continent, quite pitiful.

For the home team.

This upsets me because we have started a new season with the same rubbish. How can the league improve?

I saw a report about sponsorship earlier, sponsors put their money where there is interest. The NPFL needs to generate interest for sponsors to find it attractive. You can not increase interest if games are not fair.

If we make sure home teams get results by hook or crook. What is the point?

OK after seeing tbaba's post I had to edit mine. I wonder if Nigerian referees are not tired of the bad reports they get but who knows the penalties may be legitimate

The referees do not deliberately sabotage diz games....there are lots of factors involved.First is security....Their safety is not guaranteed if d home team loses as dey may be attacked by the home fans under d watch of d few security details some of who are inclined to the home team winning.....a possible solution is to provide a security detailed specifically for d referees preferably from a neighbouring state.

Secondly, I don't know if dis has changed, but d welfare of d referee is provided by d home team.....psycholologically, d referee would want to please his host....this has to change.

Thirdly,most referees abroad are full time professionals in diff fields....encourage such here to improve professionalism and reduce d tendency for bribery as such individuals are likely going to be financially stable!

You need to cut emotive sentiment remove your personality.
Death, this is what is being prescribed - cold, unfeeling, machine livelessness. I forbid it for any human being. Let no man in the name of football wither and stultify his humanity with such dangerous prescription. This drug you are prescribing is poisonous.

What you shockingly do not realise with your constant harping on objectivity is that you are EMOTIVELY SENTIMENTAL towards objectivity and I don't think that is objectivity.

Thinking and feeling, the rational and the irrational, heart and mind must combine for a good result. You don't understand why the world is in polarities - male, female, night, day, high, low abi?

The whole of the mind has been conditioned to become perfect in one direction - at the cost of
wholeness. My whole insistence is that the night is as beautiful as the day - Osho

Meen this article/interview exposed alot about the man called pep. That guy good meen.

But Xavi understands football o. What he released can be termed a thesis. Wow.. see depth.

This guy will surely become a coach. A good one at that.
If you want to understand the intellectual dimensions of football read four four two magazine. It's a real feast. Their articles are top notch. You will read one on one interviews of great players. I read Xavi's one on one interview and I was amazed. I read four four two's profiling of Pep Gaurdiola and sincerely even though I don't like the man as such I was blown apart.

three of the names you put up there are in worst situations, Success and Bazee have hardly trained this season talkless of playing, Aluko has lots of playing time but his statistics are nothing to be excited about. Joel Obi? please just by typing his name dude will get injured.


Isaac Success and Noah Bazee have not been frozen out of the team. They are out due to injury.

Noah is a starter if fit and he has already played this season.

Sone Aluko is in a far better situation than the unfit player he is up against. He has scored two goals and assisted 3 times this season.

Joel Obi can be second choice.

they've been cases where the police officials assigned to ensure order at match venues compromised reason because they're the club fans as well....so they find it easy to compromise just to make the home team wins...

Seriously, we need to address this. If security is the problem, then every team that can not control their crowd should suffer a hefty fine and at least 12 points deduction. Once clubs understand the enormity, they will make adequate security arrangements.

Hmmmm...and they expect Kano Pillars not to feel robbed and want to do same to their next visitors.

The refs are very easy to manipulate as the home teams are responsible for taking care of the refs before the game.

Someone will emerge highest goal scorer now from such dubious decisions and you want us to take him serious.

I think we r all shifting the argument, the crowds were not reported to v been violent or threatened the referee.

it's the referee's performance that we should concentrate on. the referee gave 2 penalties not because the crowd threatened or something but because of reasons known to him

Sweet sturvs ahead... cheesy

The key word here is "value".....football is both business and entertainment. Every business model identifies with a product dat adds d highest value with a d best "ROI" while from d fan perspective,We identify with a product dat offers d highest level of customer satisfaction in d form of entertainment!......The basic word used in dis piece is "support" but diz sponsors are business people and not a charity organisation!.....The EPL was rebranded in 1992 and has gone ahead to overtake all other leagues( purely based on its entertainment value) including Serie A dat was d best league den.The EPL attracts investors all over the world as it offers a good ROI but diz attractions is still based on the overall healthy state of the UK economy and governmental policies.

The state of a country's economy directly affects d ease of doing business dere hence until we fix key components of the nigerian economy like key infrastructures such as power,good road networks,security,IT,good stadia etc,our league will continue to suffer. The difficulty in doing biz in diz country is one of d reasons why clubs owned by government( a serious anomaly) survive while dose owned by private biz and individuals av gone into oblivion e.g Julius Berger FC, Stationery Stores FC,Ufuoma babes(female), NITEL lagos, NPAfc, etc.

From a technical and talent perspective, the nigerian league av failed to churn out or retain pure talents overtime hence its entertainment value have dropped significantly....i watched the league from the early 90's and the nigerian fans would defy the poor stadia,poor security and sometimes bias officiating just to see some pure breed of football....there was a Chidi Orji,Usman Mohammed,Justice Christopher (eventually played for d eagles),Ediri Okwagbe dat made me look forward to going to d Warri Township Stadium then despite standing from 90 minutes as i could not afford a sitting VIP ticket and dis guys were playing in the second tier (now NNL) for Delta Stars!.....there was a Roland Ewere of Bendel Insurance,Edema Fuludu,George Finidi,Isaac Semitoje,Bright Omokaro,etc......We had a working model then dat was not sustained.....it is called "school sports".....we had the best legs in public schools and had competitions dat unearthed dem like d interhouse sports competions ( more of athletics though) and state's principal cup competions.....our education system became very bad that public schools were no longer attracting d best students including sports talents....

We will av to find a better and upgraded way of unearthing and retaining talents in nigeria to increase the league's entertainment value to attract the fans and corporate sponsorship. Corporate sponsors will beg to sponsor the league just as bees are attracted to honey if the league becomes attractive! Most importantly, infrastructural development is also key to its sustainability in dis present age!
Omo you too much.

Olanrewaju Yet To Return To Girona After Christmas Break, Misses Las Palmas Clash

10 hours ago

By Johnny Edward:
Nigerian striker, Kayode Olanrewaju, is yet to return to his LaLiga Santander side Girona after the Christmas break, and will miss club’s League clash with Las Palmas in Montilivi today (Saturday) as he Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

The game is the second straight game the 24 year old Nigerian forward will be missing after he failed to report back to the club from the Christmas break.

He was also not in the matchday squad for Girona, in their 4-2 away defeat to Valencia at the Mestalla stadium last week.

According to a report on Spanish daily, L’Esportiu, the former Austria Wein striker has his head turned on after receiving offers from several teams during the January transfer window and he is also concerned about his chances of making Nigeria’s Russia 2018 World Cup Squad.‎

But Girona are not willing to allow the striker leave until the end of the season despite, the Nigerian failing to score a goal in 12 LaLiga Santander games because they believe he is still capable of regaining his scoring form for Pablo Machin’s team.

Olanrewaju has three international caps for the Super Eagles of Nigeria since he made his debut against South Africa in an African Nations Cup qualifier in June last year.

Girona are 13th in the Spanish La Liga Santander table with 23 points from 18 games played so far.
