NPFL where all home team wins
NPFL where no TV will show it live
NPFL where players don't get paid as at when due
NPFL where referees cannot officiate CAF games
NPFL where the fields are below standard
NPFL where security of players are not guaranteed




NPFL for real, enjoy!

The Nigerian Professional football league is as useless and chaotic as everything else in this country. We are too greedy, selfish and uncultured.

Home team always wins, rarely draw and never loses.
This is how it has been programmed :

IF home team wins THEN
Everyone goes home happy
ELSE IF home team draws THEN
referee is warned
ELSE IF home team loses THEN
referee goes home with a black eye.
END IF


Someone told me that if Barcelona comes to NPFL and plays at away against any of our football teams irrespective of form, they will surely lose.

hahaha..funny comments. watching it on T.V back then alone doesn't even give one joy. you rarely see the ball on the ground. Most Teams play police football. I just hope teams have upgraded.
