All Manchester United and Chelsea fans, please accept my heartfelt condolence for the inability of your formally powerful clubs to make it to the top 3 in the English premiership. However, you are free to port to any of the top 2 English clubs namely, Leicester city and Tottenham Hotspur. As for me and my family, I don port to Leicester City.


But before the porting begins, do you know that over 99% of Nigerians and millions of football fans all over the world cannot pronounce Leicester City and Totenham Hotspur correctly? Oya try am. I can hear you pronounce Leicester City as ‘Leisester city’. Some call it ‘Lisester city’. Both are wrong. Also, Tottenham Hotspur is not pronounced as ‘totinham hotspur nor ‘toteham Hotspur’. ‘Totham’ is also wrong. One of my friend call it ‘totoham hotspot’. Ha ha ha! No be only totoham na bokoharam.


Now, this is correction time. The real pronunciation of Leicester City is Less-ter city while Tottenham Hotspur is ‘tot-num hotspur’. If you doubt, ask Google. Oya clap for me. Kpa kpa kpa kpa kpa kpaaaa!


Okay, let the porting and comments begin.

For Leicester the c is silent, so it is actually pronounced as Leiester.. another examples is Hughes which is pronounced as hues, thereby skipping the gh sound.

Tottenham also has its h sound silent, therefore its pronounced tottenam.

Buy me hero drink.
