The lovely game of football is known for its nuances, complexity and many-sided quality, goal scoring is one of few statistics and substantial measurements we can use to rank players in world football.

Watching the Nigerian premier league always makes me feel guilty: I keep thinking there should be something better to be doing with my time...
But one day I hope to invest massively in the league, bring back my favorite club Insurance of Benin from oblivion and maybe even float my own club.

Am I the only one who thinks Nigeria don't produce good strikers? They just play well for one or two seasons and switch off for the rest of their career.
I would love to see another thread opened for NPFL players' salary structure.
