NFF Pays Tribute To Late Shuaibu Amodu On 4th Year Anniversary  

NFF Pays Tribute To Late Shuaibu Amodu On 4th Year Anniversary  

The Nigeria Football Federation  (NFF) has paid tribute to former Super Eagles coach Shuaibu Amodu who passed away in 2016, Completesports.com reports.

The NFF penned their tribute on their verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.

“On this day 4 years ago, Late Coach Shuaibu Amodu departed this world. We miss you coachie, continue to rest in peace. Thank you for all your contributions to the development of Nigerian Football.”

It would be recalled that Amodu died just three days after the death of his former assistant in the Super Eagles Stephen Keshi.

Amodu featured as a striker for Dumez and Niger Tornadoes in the Nigerian league during his short playing career which he had to call time on after he broke his leg.

Among the top clubs Amodu managed in Nigeria are BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, and Shooting Stars.

Also, he was appointed head coach of South African giants Orlando Pirates from 1996 to 1997.

During his time as coach of BCC Lions he led them to the now defunct Cup Winners’ Cup, where they beat Tunisian side Club Africain 4-1 on aggregate in the final.

He took Shooting Stars to the final of the 1996 CAF Champions League final and lost on penalties to Zamalek after aggregate score ended 3-3.

After the exit of Clemens Westerhof, Amodu was appointed coach of the Super Eagles on 1994 and took the team to the 1995 FIFA Intercontinental Cup  (now FIFA Confederations Cup) in Saudi Arabia where they finished fourth.

He handled two of the Eagles’ 1998 World Cup qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Kenya before he was replaced by Philippe Troussier.

He returned as Eagles coach in 2001 and helped the team qualify for the Korea/Japan 2002 FIFA World Cup.

Following an unimpressive showing at the 2002 AFCON in Mali where the Eagles finished third, Amodu was sacked.

He returned as Eagles coach in 2008 and once again qualified the team for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Once again he was relieved of his duties after he led the team to a third place finish at the 2010 AFCON in Angola.

    Rest on Oga Amodu…! We remember you today as always.

    “…..Among the top clubs Amodu managed in Nigeria are BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, and Shooting Stars. Also, he was appointed head coach of South African giants Orlando Pirates from 1996 to 1997.

    These are the kind of local coaches that should come near our SE,coaches with pedigree, coaches with CV. CVs that can get jobs anywhere on this continent. Fake guadiolas who have barely managed professional clubs for 2 seasons and now think they should be adored and glorified should steer clear.

    Looking around at all the local coaches we have, the only beep beep beep sound is coming from Khadiri Khana who presumably may have retired. We no longer have tried n tested local coaches in the mould of late Shuaibu Amodu. I remember that BCC lions squad with the Kpakor brothers, Terfa/ Moses. The quality of football they displayed; jogo bonito, was pure beauty to watch that a 90 minutes game always seemed like only just starting. Respect n loads of respect to late Amodu for those great moments. I honestly don’t understand why our new generation Ex internationals don’t wanna take up jobs with our local league teams to prove a point. Atleast that will help build people’s confidence on them. Seeking only for SE job is only showing how well they lack self belief.

     
    • Dr. Drey. 4 months ago

      Not to talk of his Shooting Stars class of 95 that lost to Zamalek on penalties in the CAFCL. That was one hell of a team, from Abiodun Baruwa (Omo Alhaja) in goal, defence maestro Ajibade Babalade, one certain Abacha in the midfield and the likes of Patrick Pascal and Edith Agoye. I think enfant terrible Duke UDI was also a part of that squad. They plundered goals with reckless abandon. Home or away they were always going for the jugular. What a team…very unfortunate they couldn’t win it that year.
      The last we heard of Kadiri Ikhana was that he was ill (stroke or so can’t remember). Currently, only Gbenga Ogubote stands out amongst all local coaches….he seems to always have a touch of success everywhere he goes…..from Sunshine Stars to Enugu Rangers and now Lobi Stars. He’s been one of very few consistent ones I believe in if we ever decide to go local.

       
      • GLORY 4 months ago

        Yeah yeah, @ Drey well stated. Apologies to Gbenga, he is being steady with good performances with different clubsides.

         
    • I do recollect that Moses Kpakor,Edema Fuludu,Benedict Ugwu and Amir Anger were part of Coach Amodu squad back then at BCC Lions of Gboko Football Club Makurdi.

       
  • It is impossible to argue with Dr Drey when he brandishes the Curriculum Vitae of the late great Amodu Shuibu as the blue print gold standard for any indigenous coach hoping to manage the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

    But Dr Drey is a bit harsh in his recommendations. Expecting any local coach to achieve what Amodu achieved is quite a tall order. We are talking about a serial winner, someone who turned every stone he touched into gold in the Nigerian football scene.

    A coach after my heart, he will go a long way to find a coach whose achievements will match that of Amodu.

    _Winner o o o, Winner; Winner o o o, Winner; Amodu you don win o, winner, your legacy will endure forever, Winner_

    A former footballer himself (striker with Niger Tonadoes), Amodu’s coaching career took off to a blistering start when, under his tutelage, the BCC Lions of Gboko won the FA Cup in 1989 with a 1-0 victory over favourites, Iwuanyanwu Nationale of Owerri.

    This was significant as it marked the first time in 36 years that a northern team would win that trophy.

    In 1990, the suit wearing fresh faced gaffer would lead the Lions to victory in the Africa Cup Winners Cup (Mandela Cup), the second-level continental competition, beating Club Africain of Tunisia 4-1 (3-0, 1-1) on aggregate in the final.

    This marked another milestone as Nigerian clubs had failed to win the trophy in 13 years before then.

    The then-23 year (clearly sounding himself out as the newest coaching-kid on the Nigerian block) led BCC Lions second consecutive final the following year, almost successfully defending the trophy. But they lost gallantly 5-4 (3-2, 1-3) on aggregate to Power Dynamos of Zambia.

    The loss nonetheless, the Nigerian football family had by now started to sit up and take notice of this man who would twice qualify his country for the World Cup and sadly twice be denied the fruits of his labour by being excluded from both world cup parties by powerful stakeholders.

    By 1995, Amodu Shuibu had won the Nigerian FA Cup a record 4 times (in 1989, 1992, 1993 and 1994) becoming the most decorated coach in the history of the competition .

    In leading El-Kanemi Warriors to victory in 1992, he set another record: the Maiduguri club became the first to win FA Cup back-to-back since Rangers did it in 1975 (Rangers won in 1974, 1975 and 1976).

    Amodu also won the League and Cup double in 1994 (with BCC, on his return) and won the Super Cup in 1989, 1993 and 1994 – another astonishing achievement.

    This is a tribute from me to this national icon: Amodu Shuibu (1958 – 2006), gone but never forgotten.

     
    • hmmmmmmmm. Very soon we will hear he took bribe too. Isn’t he one of the local coaches too.He wasn’t allowed to take the team to the world cup, because they felt oyinbo man can do it better. Just my piece

       
    • Dr. Drey. 4 months ago

      Great Tribute there @Deo. I doff my hat for you.

      Our Exinternationals should continue brandishing No of caps and pleading on the pages of newspapers for sentiments-based appointments from the NFF as if being an exinternational is a qualification. Amodu wasn’t anywhere near being an exinternational but is undoubtedly one of the main actors of the best period in our domestic league(1988-1995)….a period when our teams were constantly challenging for trophies on the continent, be it in WAFU cup, CAFCl, CAF Cup or CAF CWC.

       
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Ndubuisi Egbo is doing something fantastic in Albania.

      https://www.allnigeriasoccer.com/read_news.php?nid=36393

      But African Guadiolas will be begging for jobs from the NFF on the pages of newspapers.

       
      • Mr Hush 4 months ago

        @Dr Drey

        I am overly impressed by Egbo.
        To think he is in charge of the most celebrated sports team (Fk Tirana) in Albania,a country overtly nationalistic; is amazingly impressive.

         
      • Nothing delights me more than contributions that bring new knowledge and fresh insights.

        Thanks Dr Drey for this link about Ndubuisi which I read with much interest.

        We have coaching talents in the country of ours which would only come through if they are willing to apply themselves and go to whichever place to hone their skill and prove themselves.

        Cheers.

         
  • GLORY 4 months ago

    Also pls Sport minister Dare, May God continue to bless you and your team. Please if what I just read, is true about Khadiri Ikhana, please may your good will reach him. Remembering how Nigeria clubsides, struggled for years to win that CAF champions League cup, only for Khadiri to win it with enyimba,with some great panache, definitely that’s some achievement worthy of respect

     
    • Na wa o, dem don dey praise you now, but when odemwingwe was accusing amodu of being an agent and a coach, who changes a good hotel for bad one, they were quick to bash you. When he was dumbed from taking the eagles to the world cup, because they wanted to pad the coach income so it can be divided, NFF was not condemned. Now his CV is the type we need in the super eagles. bunch of hypocrites

       
      • GLORY 4 months ago

        @Ade, honest people will tell the pot they use to cook that it’s dirty,also will cook delicious food with the pot and say the food in there is tasty. Only dishonest persons will pretend the pot is ever clean n only talk about d delicious food.

         
        • hmmmmmmmmm, please keep enjoy using the pot it also cooks accusations with no proof

           
          • GLORY 4 months ago

            Loooolzzz,,, yes oo. Always will tell d food in there is delicious n happy to serve you a plate. Lol.

             
          • Go serve am to your boss in vienna, i don’t dwell on assumptions with no proper proof.

             
          • GLORY 4 months ago

            Only slaves talk about boss in terms of service. I’m a man of my own. Only apply myself to opinion that makes sense irrespective of who. Make some sense n read my support statement.

             
          • Peterside Udah 4 months ago

            Only slaves talk about boss in terms of service. I never heard so much bull shit in all my life. You are a hypocrite period. Stop hiding behind nonsensical gibberish.

             
      • I think Odewinge accused Keshi n not Amodu if I may recollect. Amodu was one if not the best technically gifted local coach we ever had.

         
        • please go back to the news thread on CSN. he did accuse amodu of being an agent and a coach

           
          • Well, if that is true, that maybe some of his flaws. No one is perfect, but if we talk of his flaws we should also talk of his qualities which has been highlighted above.

             
          • Adewuyi Olaosenikan 4 months ago

            The story is in the CSN.

             
          • Peterside Udah 4 months ago

            It is true that the Glory fellow castigated Nigerian coaches in the thread that followed Odemwingie’s unproven allegations. It is a surprise that he has the guts to make contributions here. That does smack of double standards and hypocrisy. This absurdity about pots and food does not fly. We progressives remember these things. ade, a beg chop knuckle,you are a legend.

             
  • Adewuyi Olaosenikan 4 months ago

    Amodu is the legends.

     
  • Goal ⚽️ 4 months ago

    Thank you very much my brother @Ade . Once a progressive is always one, when we talk we know each other, don’t mind all these self-defeatist and hypocrites who always talk from both sides of their mouth.

    People who believed  that nothing good comes from home, that it can only come from their colonial masters.

    I’m happy you corrected them in our way without insults, kudos!

     
    • I wonder o my brother, why congratulate someone you detest with passion and have nothing positive to say. All of a sudden his CV is what is required to be a super eagles coach. What happened to others who haven’t won anything but are still good to coach the team

       
  • Pompei 4 months ago

    Amodu, the “CHOKE DE MIDFIELD” tactician. All the teams he managed had a trade mark – they were always strong and robust in the middle. A man who qualified Nigeria for the world cup twice, 2002 and 2010, but was not allowed to reap the fruits of his labor on both occasions.
    Definitely one of the few coaches with real pedigree that have come out of Nigeria.

     
  • @Ade @Goal dont mind them they will finaly praise YOBO.

     
    • Oakfield 4 months ago

      Lol….. Let him do well with the chan and wafu team first, then we shall praise him….. Praise doesn’t come by force but naturally when someone has achieved something. We are all watching….

       
  • This REGRESSIVE PROGRESSIVE pple, there’s something u pple fail to understand.
    It’s not everybody that goes about with BLIND HATRED, such that even when somebody does something right u can’t appreciate, celebrate & congratulate him.

    A right mind will always see & appreciates pple’s success with a view that one he will also get to a similar position in life.

    If YOBO performs well we (DR DREY, CHAIRMANFEMI, OAKFIELD et all) will appreciate, celebrate & congratulate him.
    These are pple that possess open mind filled with sincerity.

    In a situation whereby u see somebody not appreciating the effort of another man like him, then that person is not SINCERE at all.
    There’s something wrong somewhere.
    It’s either that person has BITTERNESS, ENVY, JELOUSY, GRUDGE, ANIMOSITY or PRIDE in his heart hence will never appreciate the LITTLE success or effort of a fellow human like him.

    When u do well we’ll all rejoice with u but when u are doing badly, we’ll all scholl u.
    That’s QUALITY OF A CLEAR MIND WITHOUT HYPOCRICY.

     
  • @ubf your post goes to your master @ DR DREY. The hatred he has for YOBO is too much. He has been calling YOBO calamity. advice your master to pray and souport YOBO.

     
    • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

      You’re the one that used to call him calamity Yobo during his playing days. Are you not the same person who said home based coaches can’t be trusted in some of your previous comments?? Your own problem is way beyond you. 

       
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Pray…LMAO….did I just hear you say pray…?? LMAO. Have you ever read anywhere that “Faith without Work is DEAD….?!”

      I should pray for someone who isnt a coach, has no coaching experience at any level (even primary school level), has never been educated in coaching or trained has a coach, is not licenced by any organization to coach a football team, nonetheless the national team of Nigeria, I should pray for him…??? LMAO. He doesnt need my prayer….he only needs to do the rightful before he falls heavily from that exhaled place he’s being forced to occupy. Even If he receives prayers from 7 prophets, 7 pastors and 7 evangelists….if he keeps flaunting only his 100caps all about he will come crashing. NFF favors can get him a job, but NFF favors will not do the job for him….that is the tragedy of that partnership.

      That lie that nobody wants to give them a job in Europe because they are black has been busted long time ago. Those who have the right qualifications and level of previous experience get jobs, especially with their former clubs.

      Ndubuisi Egbo bagged his Uefa Pro license in 2014 and is coaching his 2nd club in Albania, SK Tirana (his former club) at the moment and is on the verge of qualifying for the UCL. Seyi Olofinjana is at Wolverhampton Wanderers (his former club) in England currently, He has a UEFA A license and is currently doing his Pro license….he also has an executive masters in sports directorship and management. John Utaka has started his UEFA B license already and has secure attachment in his former club Montpellier (his former club) in France to gain coaching experience with their U19s and 1st team. Kolo Toure, despite his 120 caps for CIV and many career trophies with the best clubs and coaches in the UK started acquiring coaching expereince with the U17s at Glasgow Celtics (his former club) did his UEFA A licenses and is currently the Assistant coach of EPL club Leicester City, A certain 24 old Nigerian Roland Thomas was appointed as coach of LSK Lodz in Poland 2 months ago after bagging his UEFA A licence and almost 3 years experience at u15 and U23 level, ……I can go on and on.

      Those are the type of people who need my prayers and support…and trust me, I am praying and supporting them to succeed…!

      Even other world class stars like Gerrard, Zidane, Guadiola (the Real Guadiola), Lampard, Terry, Arteta who all played centuries of games at the HIGHEST LEVELS under the greatest coaches all started with assisting with u17s and U18s, going back to coaching school to get trained, obtain badges, started with small teams like B teams and 2nd division teams, before becoming Asst Managers or Managers.

      Anybody who wants to succeed in life should WORK AS IF IT ALL DEPENDS ON WORK and PRAY AS IF IT ALL DEPENDS ON PRAYERS.

       
  • You dr drey. Chairmanfemi. Oakfield. Will appriciate. Celebrate and congraulate him. On to say you guys are more nigerian abi nff bord members. Chai nsogbu di.

     
    • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

      Anyway looking at the number of dislikes on your comments clarifies your reasoning. 

       
  • Chairmanfemi 4 months ago

    What’s all this jargon this new recruit @ade and his cohorts are spitting here??

    Ok… Amodu’s good CV and success was unveiled by CSN. If any of you claim to be in your right senses, Can you boldly come out and give us the CV to certify YOBO as a COACH (even if na Water Board FC, Okrika). Not just any how coach o, ASSISTANT HEAD COACH of a huge Footballing Country like Nigeria!

    Secondly, Am confused about something please. So-called Progressives clarify me. When does your achievement determine whether you are corrupt or not?? He won this, he won that, therefore he is not Corrupt. When did that link-up start? Late Coach Amodu is a human being. He’s not God! He’s not perfect. He has his Ups and downs/flaws. He has those good qualifications, and his flaws – was revealed by an Ex-international that he is an Agent/Coach and manages the team poorly(internally). Same old story with most Nigerian Coaches. So what’s the big deal there in pointing out his bad part. We point the bad part out and you’re all barking. Na wa ooo

    We the real Progressives of the National team are not and have never been against Nigerian Coaches being in the affair of the National team. What we are after is, any Nigerian coach coming in must be well-qualified! Have the Quality CV. Just yesterday, Dr. Drey shared the link of a Good Nigerian coach in Albania KF Tirana almost winning the Albanian league and qualifying them for Champions League qualification round. Now, ask yourself – Does Yobo have the guts to apply for the role of an assistant coach in the Scandavian Countries to even start with?? No be Head Coach o…He doesn’t! Also, they must blot out the Corrupt and Tribalistic part of there game then we’re good. There are thousands of Clubs out there, tell your Nigerian Coaches to go there and start something. They will learn Team Management, Technical know-how and lots of things there abroad. And this whole story will be a thing of the past.

     
  • But wait o!
    What even make this @omo9ja, @stan, @Goal et all their cohort feel or think they are progressive in the first place???

    Progressive minds always calls a spade a spade without sentiment, without favoratism, tribalism, ethnicity or race….

    These are pple that value PROGRESS & SUCCESS more than greed….

    They value pple that are on the right tract more than those that are just coming to fist and run-down the system….

    These are pple that prefers merit over quoto or ego….
    Etc….

    Let me still repeat myself again;
    what actually make u pple feel u pple are progressive????
    Bcos everything i listed above reflect the opposite of u pple base on ur comments i’ve witnessed so far on this forum (CSN) ….

    What most people think is that when you condemn people who are doing bad things, they believe you hate them. I’m one of yobo critics. I have been saying it and will continue to say it, he has no busy occupying the position of an assistant SE coach. Someone without require coaching badge and experience..smh. God forbid on the eve to the WC something bad happens to Rohr and he cant no konger perform his duty as a coach, is it yobo without experience that will take us to the WC?
    However, if tomorrow yobo is able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and perhaps succeed. I Will be the first to praise and congratulate him.
    I have nothing against anybody.I just want things done the right way and the same can be said of all other guys who are his critics right now.

     
    • Peterside Udah 4 months ago

      My comrade, I hail you for your words of wisdom. More blessings. But some people are just worthless hypocrites. That is what they are. You are right Mercy that just because you criticise a player or a coach does not make you enemy of progress of an evil person with evil intentions.
      But some people are just confused hypocrites who have nothing better to do with their lives than to accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of.
      I totally see where comrade Ade is coming from. Look at someone like that Glory, he will rain abuses and insults on Taribo West and Elder Odegbami MON simply because they criticised Aribo and Gernot Rohr. But what he is too dumb to understand is that by calling these people all sorts of names, he has just done what he accused them of.
      Tomorrow, if CSN is celebrating the birthday of Odegbami or Taribo, the same Glory will come and wish them happy birthday and praise their CV after calling them enemies of progress, agent of whatever and all insults under the sun.
      If you are Taribo West, will you accept birthday wishes from such a bold face low life two face hypocrite?
      I recently comment less but read more on this platform. This Glory guy was quick to jump on the band wagon of those who insulted Nigerian coaches when Odemwingie made allegations that are yet to be substantiated against Amodu. The insults hurled at Amodu on that thread were reprehensible. Yet the same guy is now flagging his CV. Trust me Mercy, if Amodu was your brother, you will not be happy with this Glory guy. Believe me when I say that. We are all human beings. Whether he cooks a delicious meal with a dirty pot or a bitter meal with a clean pot, one this is clear once a hypocrite forever a hypocrite.

       
    • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

      I wonder oo! We all saw Fernando Hierro at the WorldCup with star studded Spain. Yobo is a great fella I’ve always loved him since he broke into the SuperEagles in the early 2000s and I’ve supported his appointment as the assistant coach of the SuperEagles. The funny thing is that all this REGRESSIVE PROGRESSIVES calling us hypocrites are the ones mostly calling him calamity Yobo during his playing days. I can recall those days on KON most of them never wanted Keshi to take Yobo to the WorldCup in 2014. I was able to let them know at the time that he deserves to be in Brazil based on his longevity with the team.

      However, I think it came a little early particularly due to the fact that he’s yet to obtain the necessary certifications for the position. If he can prove his mettle with CHAN and WAFU team and also obtain the necessary badges. That’s when I can trust him to be in that position. As for Amodu he was always there when the nation have no other options or resources at the time. Therefore, there’s always a tendency to manipulate resources as stated by some established players during his tenure. 

      They’ve done everything to underestimate Rohr’s achievement yet they will claim the current SuperEagles have the best defense in a long time or the best attack in a long time LMAO!! 

       
    • Man koko 4 months ago

      I concur with you @mercy, @Ub.F and @dr drey. If by tomorrow yobo succeeds , we all are going to rejoice with him but we need to call a spade a spade. We need to do things accordingly. Follow the normal procedures which all saw the way yobo’s appointment wàs made. To me it’s not proper at all…but we have to wait and see how the whole drama will unfold. Our nff is a mess. They are our main problem

       
  • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

    Hehehehehe…..An african adage says better having a still-born than an imbecile. These backward thinking progressives really fit each other – empty, blind, shallow-minded, low thinking faculty, lack insight, cant understand contexts and above all deficient in logical reasoning, and they truly flock together…LMAO…just like birds of same feathers.

    So because of the late Amodu’s CV, we should applaud or rather,shouldn’t talk about, his money for hand back for ground jankara market management style as SE coach (which has become a sort of trade mark of local coaches)…???

    OR on the flip side,

    because of his underhand dealings as SE coach, we shouldnt acknowledge the fact that he indeed had a CV that was worthy of the position he occupied, which NONE of the current breed of local coaches (INCLUDING THE SO-CALLED EX-INTERNATIONALS who beg for jobs on the pages of Newspapers) can dream of, yet will want to be adored and glorified with the headship of the SE…???

    They think we are shallow-minded, hate-filled racists like them who would not acknowledge an honest and transparent man’s good works and accomplishments as a coach just because he is a white man…??? Later they will complain they cannot breathe, whilst even their own transgressions and left-wing views are even worse than suffocation.

    Advocating for Merit over Nepotism is what they term as hatred…..that is why our advocacy for a better fitting and better qualified assistant coach (that can be afforded) for our national team, other than one who isn’t even a coach yet and doesn’t even have common corporate and managerial sense to know that when you’ve just been appointed to a portfolio, one of the first things you need to do is establish contact with you immediate boss and familiarize yourself with him, is interpreted in their deficient thinking faculty as HATRED. Hell It was after so much public hue and cry and after weeks of his audio appointment (BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN NO TALK OF AN INTERVIEW OR A SIGNED CONTRACT) that our 100cap wielding “Asst Coach” knew that he was supposed to do the most basic thing in management, ‘CONTACT YOUR IMMEDIATE SUPERIOR AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT’.

    Even the NFF are not so confident in their appointee….that’s why he wasnt even given a job description or debriefed on why and what he will be doing as Asst Coach (Dude is still waiting for Rohr to tell him what and what he would do). When Salisu was appointed to assist Rohr, we were told straight away he would lead the internal scouting team and the U23 and CHAN SE. When Imama was scouted, we were told straight away he will be in charge of the U23s. Yobo has been appointed for almost half a year but we still dont know who will handle our next U23 and CHAN teams. Even NFF are not so confident in the ability of their appointee…that is why they are looking for ways of conscripting Rohr into the CHAN team. I dare NFF to hand our CHAN team to Yobo to handle, I DARE THEM if the know in their minds that Yobo is the best bet for the position they have handed to him. The sport minister’s recent assertions that “The current SE players play in top clubs under top coaches and hence we dont want a situation where the players are SOUNDER THAN THE COACH” is a huge vote of no confidence and a slap on the face of those who made the kangaroo unilateral appointment.

    And to those who are devouring stubborn grass because I called Yobo calamity…YES… I call him calamity, because that was the nickname Everton fans and the press gave him. I didnt give him the name, google it and you will see it yourself. As much as he was a decent defender in his days, he was also calamitous. He committed as many punished errors for the SE as the number defensive duties he gave and that is why despite being the most capped and longest serving SE defender ever, He still cannot be ranked in the top 5 of our best ever defenders…and that’s a #FACT…Infact it will take rankings from those who only saw from the 90s to even rank him in the top 10…and that’s another #FACT…!

    Anybody wey e too pain, make e go drink sanitizer…..LMAO…afterall its at least 60% alcohol.

Una crucify keshi for taking players who didn’t deserve to be in the team at the nations cup and world cup, and called him all sorts of name because of corruption ( Till date there is no evidence). We the progressive don’t live on assumptions. Prove to us this men were corrupt with clear evidence not word of mouth. Did a little research on the claims of Odemwingwe, Please which hotle does the eagles stay in Abuja?

I thought he said he did research…the research nor yield output… LMAO…???
