    “….The former Black Leopards of South Africa gaffer cited unfulfilled contractual obligations and interference in team selection as reasons for leaving the club….”
    Hehehehehe….we have seen this movie many times. I guess its a Nigerian thing…..LMAO. Like NFF like Kano phillars. I wont be surprised this dude is probably being owed like 3-6 months salaries too….LMAO.

    Rohr was smart to include a $2m clause in his own contract. At least if NFF escapes paying him his salaries, they wont escape a $2m hammer from FIFA….LMAO. Cunny man die, cunny man bury am.lolz

    Orlando Pirates vs Enyimba on for anyone who cares to watch and support our only remaining club in CAF competitions

      Broda man @ Drey, I have been watching the people’s elephant my team but honestly speaking our homebased players have got miles of improvement to cover to reach the level of present SE players. Unfortunately about 90% of them haven’t got age on their side to reach that level. Even the only homebased player picked; the goal keeper, John Noble is just all panick personified, struggled to deal with a simple ball that led to the goal conceded; had to look really closely to be sure he isn’t Akpeyeques… The talent is there for most of the players though but definitely won’t be ready for SE assignment in the next five years by which time most of the players would have been aging seriously.

        My broda wetin man go do na. We dont have a choice but to just watch them since they are the only ones left to fly our flag.

        My position on home-based players invitation to the SE remains. I’ve said enough about it before now and it will never change if status quo remains.

        On a good day when players play on the continent, you expect them to push their game and abilities 2-3 notches higher. Tonight’s game is like the 5th Enyimba is playing on the continent this season that I have watched….and if what I see them play is their 2-3 notches higher…..LMAO….then I fear for those who insist we must give them 4 shirts in the SE. LMAO.

        All that keeps running in my mind always when I watch them is “frankly na who these ones wan bench for SE now…from keeper to centre forward”. And when you imagine this is like the BEST of the BEST team in the league…..ah…my brother, things begin to get scarier. And you keep hearing the echo of “there are many talents in the league…there ae many talents in the league….” Ngwa wia dem dey na…? They’re all talents for their level…they are all talents for their standard. Raise the standard a bit higher and then you see majority of them struggling to cope.

        The team that knocked our BEST out of the CCL is the whipping boys of their group now…that shows how far behind our Best is compared to the rest of the Bests of the continent. Those ones aren’t joking….LMAO. You watch the CAF CL and see how they are showing one another flames there.

        Even Ikpeba said after the 2nd leg of the Enyimba vs Rivers encounter concerning the quality of play….”this isnt a good advertisement of the league”. It was worse that Rohr and the Technical department of the NFF were there…..same way they were there when our league’s champions lost at home to the champions of TANZANIAN league.

        Notwithstanding, we must still support our only flag bearers in the competition…..bcos as the commentator was referring to them…they are Enyimba of Nigeria. But the truth remains, the journey still faaaarrrr.

        I rest my case.

          Really disappointed by the content currently portrayed by Enyimba. To think they are an extention of the Nigerian league makes it even worst.

          I tried watching the game but couldn’t get past the 15mins mark of the first half.
          My passion for Enyimba( and Nigeria) pushed me back to watch the second half, still couldn’t get through it. I would get to find out the final scores from report.
          The style of play is totally

          No mincing words; the Nigerian league is really in a bad state. And the level has fallen short from what was attained in the not so distant past when Enyimba conquered Africa back to back.
          Such a shame! Such a shame!

            ……and when you recall their coach being “confident of victory” against Orlando Pirates just 2 days ago on the pages of the internet, then you will understand why Rohr is so much hated by many here…..LMAO.

            How can you be confident over nothing….??? Is that how a team that is confident of victory turns up…?? LMAO

          Broda honestly, the thing just tire me….. I sincerely want to celebrate our own but truth is, its becoming a wild goose chase. My legs are getting weaker n weaker as it just seems like a never ending race.
