The U20 is currently our major focus now but I needed to say this after Coming across Nicole Payne game clips…

But why is Coach Randy such a Strong headed Coach…
The Nicole Payne I know is a Right Back, very Strong defensively and good at overlapping with the Ball. Have never seen her Play as a Left Back for her College team. And Nicole Payne is the quickest full back in the team currently in the absence of Patricia George.

Then why does Randy Chose to play her as a Left Back instead of her Original Position??

As it Stands…
Asisat Oshoala, Onome Ebi and Esther Okoronkwo will definitely miss the September international Friendly game against USA.

Asisat and Esther will be missed. What's up with the "**"? What does it mean? Standby?

With the way Man Utd played today... It shows Ten Haag is never enough...they need like 25 more.
Man Utd's problem is beyond any coach now. Even Guardiola will fail there. It looks like every incoming coach is worse than the previous one.

Politics / Re: Anambra: Obi, Tinubu, Atiku, Others To Pay ₦10M Each For Campaign Posters by JohnBullMySon: 7:55pm On Aug 13

Anambra state government really knows how to generate revenue..
It must be from the administration of Peter Obi that this revenue generating scheme started..
You see one thing i know that must surely happen concerning this development is that "Peter Obi won't pay shi~shi,but his banners,posters will be all over the state and beyond"
Anambra state governor is Soludo and not Peter Obi. At times give credit to the proper person.

GeneralDae:

I understand the satire but I'm curious on what you are on about concerning this issue. Why you take our number of passes in isolation rather than putting it in relation to that of France whom we played against and under same conditions?
He was talking about some kinda passing prowess which I did not see and the stats did not really agree with. When I brought that up, he started to factor in the rains.

Its just like saying that Nigeria is the best country in the world then when someone factually disagrees, you start talking about how corruption and nepotism limited Nigeria. I'll rather wait for our game against Canada to have some level of hope. France may have a very weak squad this time around.

Seriously I struggle to get your point here. We played under the rains and decided to play long balls. What's hard to understand here?
Read my earlier comments before that. What you quoted was a satirical response to someone else.

TheSuperNerd:
All you have said makes zero sense because that game was executed in the rains. Did you ever for one second consider that context?

My son, Rest!!!


Okay. Then we're the best passers under rainy conditions. Nice one. It better rain throughout the competition or we're f*cked.

Next time please check other people's stats so you will be more balanced with the analysis. Wakanda forever.

The same Canada that was caught ball watching on a number of occasions, Korea is a bigger threat cause they're faster and can match the speed of the falconets.
I don't see us winning Korea. That's why I did not mention it. If we win Canada then we can go through.

Fresh from beating Grace Chanda and Ajara Njoya in the Women's African Player Of The Year award, Nigerian forward Asisat Oshoala has been nominated for the Women's Ballon d'Or award scheduled to be given in October

The best part of this story is that Oshoala still has years in her legs.

The weather played a big role in the poor passing accuracy yesterday... We might have dominated France, but they are still an elite team .. Their passing too was poor... I'm sure if you check the stats for other games, it won't be this low
Canada vs South Korea looked like a better game. I will only put hope in this team after I see their game against Canada. Till then.

Context matters bro.

It's grossly inadequate for you to compare passing stats with other teams in isolation. For instance, the quality of opposition is not the same. We played a better team in France, than the other teams on question. France is on of the favourite in this competition and we completed more passes that they did.

Also, other teams didn't have to play under extreme weather conditions. The girls played most of the first half on a water logged pitch. I was initially dissatisfied with the long balls, but AkinDS rightly reminded me that the rainy condition informed that strategy. You'll notice they kept the ball on the ground in the second half when it got better.

So for all the challenges they had to deal with it was a pretty good stat. We'll however know more when the play Korea, hopefully under a more conducive environment.
First I don't know where you heard that France is the favorite. This is age grade competition and the status of the country may not matter much. If France is the favorites and we dominated them, then we are favorites even more and should have better numbers. If we played a much formidable team as you argue then we should not even win the possession game.

We had 54% possession and should easily complete well over 300 passes with that amount of possession. Costa Rica with 32% possession completed 232 passes against Australia. Honestly, we really must improve and not let the win deceive us. The stats don't tell a good storu

Falconets: The Ball Playing Jugglers

In this game, The Falconets outpassed the French team. We recorded 295 passes as against the French's 259 passes.

Also, our passing accuracy was 57% as against the French's 54%.

Ball possession: Nigeria's 54% vs France's 46%.

Not yet eureka, but another fine generation of ball passers and ballplaying marvels are coming up strong.

When I first saw these your statements, I was initially skeptical but assumed that it was relatively okay, having watched the game and seen the amount of passes we threw away. Now I must say that we had a poor outing compared to the other teams in the competition.

We currently have third worst passing so far behind France/ Costa Rica 54% and Ghana 48%. Most teams averaged mid 60s 70s and even 80s in percentage with over 300 completed passes. That is really poor passing performance from Nigeria.

I don't like to sound negative or pessimistic, but tone down the passing stuff a bit. We're nowhere close yet.

Not cos we won france, but forget that history aspect. See how Columbia schooled Germany days back? Time and quality has passed under this bridge o. Lol. It felt like u17 to me, i won't like. I'm so used to the Oshoala and Dike set of u20-intensity and all, that it's hard to accept this is currently u20.
I'm saying the same thing with you.

I think they are. The commentator also mentioned that we and them are favorites to qualify from the group.
Canada doesn't feel like joke to me and South Korea have won it twice before. Another thing is these teams change quickly.

But you're right. France was in pot 1. So that's a good thing.

Succinctly put. I believe this win would further boost their confidence, don’t forget France is European powerhouse, we just have to keep encouraging them and hope they gets even better as the tournament advances.
Well, these things become less important in age grade competitions. I'm not keeping my hopes high till I see the next group games.

Unto the next one. Shouldn’t we get to the final Sebastine should be the tournament MVP.
The performance was solid and win deserved. However, I don't we are yet a final contender based on this game. Sabastine seems to be our only threat upfront. We almost lost the game. The team is not bad, but nothing close to the Oshoala times yet. Emphasis on yet. This is just the first game and things like this can happen. Good performance btw.

Absolutely nothing. Mamelodi Sundowns' coach is better than Watford's coach who took his own team to relegation. You ok with that?

This team is obviously better coached than the Super Falcons under Waldrum.
I don't see any logical basis to draw comparisons between two very different scenarios. We have good records with the age grade teams but this looks like it will be an improvement over the last one where we struggled a lot. However, it is too early to judge.

Not really that, he's very matured.

He has been a leader in every club he's played in.

Score or not, he was one of the designated post-match speaker for Feyenoord and Genk.

Just watch, in this Cremonese team, even if he flops, he would be assigned a leadership role.
Actually I don't think you quite understood what I meant. I was talking about his dressing alone. Traditional Europeans don't tend to overdress. Even Americans. Looking and appearing expensive is generally modern culture.
Programming / Re: My Software Engineering Journey In ALX Africa by JohnBullMySon: 8:32pm On Aug 11
Hannania:
Your facts are right, and most people in Nigeria are majorly developers(build component ) rather than engineers. That's why we don't have proprietary software around here.

But for alx, it builds one to be an engineer. Find attached the curriculum, and get a feel of it.

DevOps is not a skill, but a culture. Developers are chosen to implement that culture with certain skills, such as CI/CD. This distinction is not common between a lot of African developers, because what we have are script skiddies all around .
Yeah but to be an engineer one must take to heart the non programming side of engineering. The design and architecture. That is what brings to life your technical knowledge of Java and Python.

Yes, you're absolutely right about DevOps. I just relate it to deployment and operations most times.
