    A lot of job need to be done in this flying eagles squad… the don’t have scoring goals mentality …
    Let’s continue doing things the same old ways and be expecting a different results. These coaches are selected ones and not the most qualified ones. Where truth stands to gain no ground, such will continue. you expect another football disaster.

    Bameyi to be honest you’re the main cause of the defeat because it would not be hard for to admit to your coach that you’re not a good CB so that he will manage you at your RB that you’ve done better. Your timing of that square play and missing it resulted into that second goal that killed the match plus you couldn’t also deal with the corner that Fredrick always dealt with that kept us in matches. Omo your Godfather strong o because if I was a coach I will advise you to learn another craft. One bad egg can spoil a meal and that’s what you did and to speak out afterwards makes me know that nobody is telling you some truth about your game.
