    Congratulations to Rivers and Bayelsa but Sad to see Akwa United lose to a late controversial penalty. CAF continues to be a Joke….. I don’t think followers should be taking football seriously anymore if the politics doesn’t come to an end because theres no need to waste time on fake developments.

      @Chima Samuel, that’s where I have finally come to be; not taking football and many other sports too seriously. There are loads of things happening behind the scenes, that if one is to highlight these things, it will have to be your main payable job. My head is too precious to be moved about blindfolded. There are several unwritten code of employment combined with law of omerta. Think about that. This world system is not worth getting too passionate over anything as to hate another person but just taking things in the chin.
