    S.E have consistently voiced out that they are not comfortable playing in Lagos.Therefore the NNF must find them a home outside Lagos for their home matches. Lagos city is to rowdy, insecure and dirty to make it our permanent S.E home. Lagos environment instill fear in the minds of players causing them to be insipid and unable to express themselves. If S.E lose to Capevade in Lagos NNF should be held responsible. Cos these players have voiced out on several Occasions that they prefer Uyo or PH but NNF keep forcing and imposing Lagos on them. No sane person does that. The NFF should stop toying with the minds of Nigerian youths. Football is a game of the mind and level of motivation .A small team that is well motivated can beat a big team any time , any day .We see this trend in football day by day. The NFF must learn to listen to what SE are saying and the vibe in the team before matches. SE is the only solace left to bring succour these wounded Nigerian youths ..Move SE to another venue before it’s late
