How many countries can ? That's a country with a population of almost 550,000 ... not even a local govt in lagos .. America sef can't do it , Germany thats thats closer with their good economy, can't do it.
Hopefully things change to better in Nigeria , but we all need to be discipline and change our mentalities

Changing our mentality starts by acknowledging our deficiencies first instead of looking for other countries that can't do it as if that's a justification for our failures.

Do you know countless free things those countries you said can't do it offer to their citizens?

Name just one free thing Nigerians benefits from its government? Name just one

Changing of one's mentality starts with telling yourself the blunt truth first and not trying to relegate reality and start chasing over illusions.

the Luxemburg i know is a small shit hole

education system not recognised
what's their GDP
who knows their musicians
who knows their actors and actresses


Nigeria is bad
but economically and infrastructure wise its well better than that village...
how many billionaires do they have

dangote alone can buy that hamlet

This type of ignorance and childish reasoning is exactly why Nigeria will never progress.

What is the meaning of this nonsense "Who knows their musicians who knows their actors and actresses"

Are you aware that Luxembourg is currently rated the 3rd richest Country in the world?

You still had the audacity to ask what their GDP is even when you are ignorant of what the facts are?

Well, the chat below is the current list of richest countries in the world and check out for yourself what position Luxembourg occupies and then get educated on what their GDP is as well.

Take a look at Nigeria's global ranking and it's GPD which should be a cause for shame instead of bragging and bringing Dangote into this conversation as if you are a direct beneficiary of his wealth which is also irrelevant to the question in discuss.

Sports / Re: Isreal Adesanya Beats Paulo Costa To Retain UFC Middleweight Championship by byrron(m): 6:46am
Kovuh:
That was clinical from Adesanya. All these foreign UFC analysts were busy saying how costa is the better fighter but from what I just watched it's like Adesanya was fighting with someone baby fighter. So one sided, not even a contest, just a beat down by Adesanya. That left leg of costa really suffered, it will be hurting him badly for weeks if not months.

Costa is a beast but Izzy tamed him with his superior technicalities which was to work on Costa's left leg through those precision kicks making it impossible for Costa to come charging on Izzy as he always does with other fighter's.

Izzy neutralized Costa and bossed over him from start to finish which is why he is the CHAMP.

Congratulations Izzy!!!

Costa is a brawler and was hoping to come to do that with Izzy but you need to have a leg to stand on in other to brawl and Izzy being a tactical wizard chopped of Costa's left leg with his kick boxing techniques thereby nullifying Costa's game plan from the very moment the fight began.

Isreal is tactically sound and knows how to beat the crap out of his opponents by first demobilizing them through voracious leg kicks and then finish them of and Costa now knows who the Champ is since he is the newest convert.

grin that's what it'll look like because the speed and quality of ball moving from defence to attack is complete shiite. The main tool Ziyech is missing. No creative freedom, no focus play. Pulisic's pace too is needed.

Even BBC's analysis on Chelsea's game said exactly the same observations I made.

Here are some extracts

"In the wider context, Chelsea and Lampard's negative approach came as a surprise, arguably exaggerating the already very large gulf in class between themselves and their visitors"

"What also raised eyebrows was the home side's passive, conservative gameplan that handed impetus to Liverpool from the first whistle, something they were more than happy to accept"

"Chelsea got so stuck in a rigid defensive rut, hoping Werner's pace would threaten on the counter-attack, that they could not get out".

"Lampard's strategy was even more high-risk against Liverpool given the fact both his goalkeeper and the current Chelsea defence represent accidents waiting to happen, which they duly did. An already nervous defence is frayed even further by a nervous keeper".

"Lampard can still reflect on the fact he will soon have the ability to add touches of class and experience but the lack of ambition in Chelsea's approach was disappointing, as was the result".

I don't think you understand fully what tactic Lampard is using that's why you're getting mad. He isn't parking the bus, he's just playing a low defensive line. Arteta is currently playing that. Madrid also use to play that when Ronaldo, Di Maria and Ozil were blazing. It's a long ball counter strategy. Long ball counter will make your team appear like it's playing shitee but if they get it right you'll score alot of goals. Similar to how Spurs attack looked today. It's both basic and genius actually with players like Pulisic and Werner to run in behind the defence with mad pace and Havertz and Ziyech to whip those pin point crosses, it'll work fantastically BUT it takes time to perfect it and they all need to play at the same time. Can't have quality players injured and expect Mount to position like Pulisic or Kante to cross or have vision like Ziyech. It's just Chelsea's bad luck lol.

When an entire team retreats to it own half from the blast of the whistle and stays there for 90 minutes while hoping to catch it's opponent in counter attack while leaving just a lone striker up-front, that is the definition of packing the bus and there is no other terminology to disguise this ill-fated cowdice of a tactics.

MrColdsweat:
A football innovation called attracting the press and bypassing the overload. This is used to draw the opponents in your own half so that the opponents half will be isolated. Attacks are more effective with space. Look at how hard Liverpool had to work to break Chelsea down as a unit. It is always easy to attack and score goals when your opponents are running back to defend than scoring when your opponents are sitting deep(parking the bus)

Watch man city vs Liverpool 4:0 and the recent community shield last month to see how city and arsenal used this strategy to defeat Liverpool.

Sadly, that innovation backfired because all the goals were scored against the team that was implementing that innovation of playing around in their own goal area as against that of their opponents goal area.

Chelsea seems to be the only team always experimenting with this suicidal innovation.

Lampard had only one Game plan. Soak The pressure and Go on the counter with Werner and Mount. I don't blame him anyway. He knows how much Klopp and Our Boys can do damage when they smell a chance

That approach to playing football is now outdated just like the inventor of it (Jose Mourinho) is gradually fading away to oblivon.
You can justify doing such to protect a lead towards the end of the game and not at the beginning of the game.

Well said... But it would have been a different story if waina grin grin(Werner) had slot in those chances he had
Lampard had a plan( Catch them on the counter)... Correct ne if I'm wrong
Fabino was just absolutely sport on in his judgenent!

I wasn't expecting this kind of score line anyway

If timo had scored today and we still played so badly then there wouldn't be any cause for celebration from my end since I was also very critical of our first game even though we won but it felt like a loss to me because the result wasn't a true reflection of what we played and today's defeat should have been the second and celebrating our first victory would have amounted to being delusional on my part because we where very abysimal.

I didn't expect us to play so purposelessly and parking the bus immediately the game started was so disgusting to watch and we did same BS on our first game with a championship team that just got promoted which means that Lampard spent close to 300 million pounds on players just to pack the bus? Thats unforgiveable

A depleted chelsea team that conceded the most goals in the top 6, playing against the defending champion that scored five against you in the last time you met?

It would be naive to come all out against the defending champion right from the first minute.

The correct approach would be to be conservative, size up the opponent and then gradually be more expansive, maybe in the second half.

And it was working, if not for the hopeless christensen.

Not buying this excuse at all.
A defending champion that conceded 3 goals to a championship team that just got promoted to EPL is a proof that they are fallible with the right game plan.

Seems you have forgotten so soon that Chelsea is a big club and have been defending champions on numerous occasions and shouldn't adopt the inferiority mindset when playing against teams like Liverpool simply because they are the defending champion?

What's the purpose of preseason and trainings if lessons learned from previous encounter with your opponents are not being corrected?

Chelsea didn't lose today's game because of christensen's red card but we lost due to the game plan adopted for this game.

Its been proven time and again that the best form of defense is attack and when you attack an attack minded opponent, they retreat for you and not the other way round and most times, attack minded teams have the worst defense and Liverpools first game of the season proved that but Chelsea still failed to learn any lessons from Leeds but decided to lay on the mat and wait for Liverpool to come and violate them like they ridiculously did in today's game.

They didnt look like scoring in 45 minutes.
Chelsea had the game in control. Flood the midfield and catch liverpool on a counter.


But even liverpool did, it would have been end to end goals.

That red card killed the game. It is not a surprise they scored soon after.

And lampard is too amaturish to adapt.

Chelsea lost the game the moment the game started, they all ran back to their own half to pack the bus after kneeling for the 1 minute BLM observation.

A team that belives on themselves and wants to win a game won't start like that, you only do that to protect a lead towards the tail-end of a game and not immediately the game begins, that's an own goal.
