Why Does The Green And Green Jersey Bring Bad Luck To Eagles? by aariwa(m): 11:53pm On Jul 14, 2019
I noticed that since I could remember we have never won an important match in a tournament with that jersey.We lost against Argentina and Italy in USA 94 with that jersey and it has continued till this day.When I saw them file out in that jersey i switched off my TV because i already knew what would happen...smh

Actually, the ORIGINAL green jersey we wore was not a problem. We beat Spain in 1998 wearing that jersey. In fact we have won many many games wearing the traditional green jersey of Eagles.

It is this sinister dark green one which actually looks like black from a distance, that was introduced before the last WC alongside the popular light green home kit, that has been our problem. It CLEARLY has a psychological impact on the players. It seems to drain them of all belief, energy, motivation, and coordination.

I bet MADAGASCAR knew they would win as soon as they saw the Eagles file out in that jersey.

You are right,but who approves the choice of a jersey in a football match.Is it the coach or captain or referee or NFF or throwing of dice...?

grin How can people reason like f angry angryls? So the jersey made eagles stroll around the field, gave us VAR penalty and made Ref award unwarranted free kicks to us, even gave Algeria 3 yellows.

Exactly.

But if it was me, I'm burning that ugly Green jersey and then come up with a lighter tone. Fact is, they suck in the dark green jerseys more than they suck wearing the sexy swag jersey.

Bro, under the law or customary court, who has the custodial rights of the children if the partners weren't lawfully wedded and are separated ?

The court takes the interest of the child as priority ie where it will be better served in terms of education and better future.It is the job of opposing counsels to convince the court along those lines.In customary court the custom takes precedence unless such custom is repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience

OK. Thanks for the clarification bro but I would like you to elaborate more on this.
In this situation, the kids of the woman involved were forcefully taken away from her.The man took the two boys and left her with their 2 years old baby girl. The first boy, is about 5 years going to 6 while the second boy is around 4.Although the lady is working but she cannot carter for all the kids but isn't it appropriate for the law to grant her the custodial rights, since the children are still young and make the man pay child support and grant him visitation?
And also for the fact they aren't legally married?

How can a man

Born one
Born two
Born three ... With the same woman

And you're still saying they're not "legally married"... As if the man won't scream adultery if she has affairs when they're still together.

They're beyond legally married... They're flesh and blood
