|Re: Forgotten Players In Nigerian Soccer by sonof9ja: 7:43pm On Jun 21, 2009|
I can't believe no one has mentioned Emanuel Osigwe. How could you guys have forgotten that spectacular goal he scored against Tunisia in the second leg of the 1982 world cup qualifying match in Lagos?

|Re: Forgotten Players In Nigerian Soccer by abacus(m): 8:21pm On Sep 03, 2010|
I don't mean to re-awaken this thread again , but after I went through the thread from page to last (I cant afford to miss any), I can't imagine me not 'putting mouth', because I tried small for Nigeria league, though very young then, I used to support JULIUS BERGER aka Adewale bridge boys.
Those days, I always sneak out to watch Berger matches @ Onikan, snake Island, Berger yard(training) etc then (all Lagos).
My Key players
Wilson Oboh (Player maker)
Ndubuisi Egbo - Personally, I like him
Amir Angwe RIP
James Enaguna 68
Moussa Latoundji our top 9, later got to know he's from Benin
Segun Abiodun - I like his style
Agbonifo Aikhobare I learnt his elder brother played for Berger, he was brought in from Benin city, He's deadly, he sometimes dye his hair, where he's self cos he too young to fade
Agbonifo Aikhuobare RIP - Agbonifo Aikhobare's elder brother , trying to recollect what happened to him really, he was killed by either robbers or police in Benin on one night, i think he went partying, on his way back, he was shot.
Players from Other clubs
Victor Skinn Nepa FC
Henry Onwuzuruike Nepa
Oye Nepa (Cant recollect his real names)
Dotun Alatishe Suting
Paul Oruma - cant recollect the name of the club, the club is a River state fc, Oboh also played there after he left Berger
Seyi Ogunsanya - Flaming stores
Collins Ebtimi - Flaming Stores
Emmanuel Olisadebe - Eyimba FC,
I used to encouraged the football field then after full match, you know that kind thing, I will be able to see the lads one on one , and eavesdrop to their discussions and will take that to my friends to boast of my close relationship with the players. I once did that on Emmanuel Olisadebe, not too long after that he left for Poland and the rest is history.
Really, I want our football to go back to those days, I want to go stadium every match day. I want to share my Chelsea fc support with another club in Nigeria. Please, don't ask what about Berger. LOL.
In Onikan stadium, on every match day, we have these area boys from Isale eko (Lagos Island), they won't come in time, when it's about 5 minutes to kickoff, they will come in numbers, they come with different weapons, they disorganized the queue, chase everybody away as distant as Bonny camp. This is fun, we really fear them, mere seeing them coming, we fled, sometimes we ended up watching the match from the bridge.
I STILL WANT TO SEE THESE HAPPENING, GOD BRING OUR LEAGUE BACK TO THOSE DAYS, I WANT CHELSEA BE MY SECOND BEST CLUB. AMIN.

so what can be done to bring back this glorious days of our football league? wow! i really appreciate everyone that contributed on this topic, as it refreshed ma memories of the good old days. as kid::: liberty stadium of ibadan, adamasingba stadium , sutin stars, the fans, Baba eleran. Oh! God. i think it was more intrestin and fun to have own intresting league than to support one european club on the DSTV.
i can still remember the song shootin fans were singin (zamalek ki in ri ran osan o, balu balu ta aa fin ooo)to mess the zamalek of egypt, but fawole ogbehin messed up the whole story as he scored own goal in cairo. pls who know the name of the man in goal for shootin stars on that day?

|Re: Forgotten Players In Nigerian Soccer by cashful(m): 1:29pm On Jun 06, 2011|
Very lovely thread, i remember the commentator on FRCN describing Andrew Uweh as the tallest man on the pitch but always heading the lowest spheres and Sam Pam the shortest man on the pitch but always gets to head the tallest spheres,
Monday Odiaka(fastest goal at moscow 85) and Uche Okafor(maroc 88) were some my heroes back then
|Re: Forgotten Players In Nigerian Soccer by Concept(m): 6:50pm On Jun 06, 2011|
To everybody that has contributed to this topic, million gbosa for you. I am nostalgic. I just love them all. Thank you.
|Re: Forgotten Players In Nigerian Soccer by Akolawole(m): 9:22am On Jun 07, 2011|
1) There are many reason(s) why they lost the match.
#They relied so much on liberty stadium but CAF did NOT allow them.
#Believing in the useless juju is another thing anchored by Alhaji Elekuru.
#Fixing the match at 2pm because of the egyptians even kill them more.
#Sadly Chief Segun missed being crowned african player of the year because of the loss.
2) Raymond King
