    A big congratulations to ENYIMBA, Finidi Finito n coaching crew. Nzogu nzogu ENYIMBA enyi, nzogu ENYIMBA. Lol. Truly enjoyed today’s NPFL games The coaches only needs work on their teams Finishing.
    A bit sad though, my darling team Bendel insurance couldn’t get their hands on continental football, nevertheless they have truly impressed and should take that into next season.
    Honestly the good old days of Nigeria league football is gradually returning back. There is still a long way to go but I can see that steady rise to where it should be. NFF only have to find way to make the league even more attractive to stop talents jumping out unto all forms of foreign leagues; one of such should be, ensuring proper welfare of players as well as coaches etc.
    In as much as I am a die hard fan of our local league, I still don’t think reserving places in the SE team for home based players is the right thing. But rather the way to go is get the best home based to the CHAN team and blend them very well together over a long period and hopefully after winning the CHAN, which is very possible, they then become the bedrock of the main stream SE team.
    ONCE AGAIN A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PEOPLE’S ELEPHANT AND much appreciation to Rivers utd, Bendel insurance,Remo stars etc for giving fans some hope of better days ahead.

  • Congratulations to coach Finidi George and Enyimba fc!
    This is befitting of their status as Nigeria’s most successful club.

    Congrats to Mr Finidi George…is there any better way to earn honour and respect for yourself…? I doubt it.

    Continue to build on this success and see your stock rise where others have fallen…!

      Shut the hell up, he doesn’t need your congratulatory message. Go and focus on your rorh and leave Finidi alone. Hater of the highest order

        Hahahahaha, imbecile, you are back again…? Who sounds like a hater between the 2 of us……LMAOoo. When the only time you open your gutters to comment on CSN is to attack Dr.Drey….LMAOoo.

        It seems by now, you too have realized that every time you open your latrine of a mouth to comment here, you end up getting sticks from readers for vomiting so much irritating stupidity for the comfort of the eyes…..LMAOoo.

        I feel your pains ehn….! LMAOoo.

        Okponu abugije…!

        Thank God the entire CSN community and indeed the whole world knows that I’ve been the one screaming at your entitled ex-internationals to stop lying to us with their skin colour as an excuse for not having jobs.

        If you cant get a job in Europe, go to Asia. If you cant get in Asia, go to middle east, if you cant get in middle eat, come to not africa, if you cannot get in north africa, come to sub-saharan africa, if you cant get in subsaharan africa, come back home.

        Alas you can only get a job with a CV and a managerial profile….not with number of international caps as they always want to flaunt……LMAoooo.

        At least, Finidi has now placed himself above those who should go begging NFF for jobs. If the rest like, they should still sit down in their parlours wherever, on Twitter or on internet pages and keep claiming entitlement to national team jobs as if it’s their fathers’ property.

        And like Ive always said, if he should follow suit with a finalist medal (I know this one is still too hard for you to comprehend till today…..LMAOOo…okponu still doesn’t know what a finalist means…..LMAOooo) in any of the CAF club competitions, I’ll personally sponsor a campaign to have him manage one of our national teams from the U23s and above

        So my congratulations are very much in order…..if it pains you so much please drink rat poison ehn….!!! or better still, you too can start making comments that make sense, are on point, and can yield valid and useful end results in the end.

        But for an imbecile like you, it seems the latter is way beyond you.

    Cobgratulations to Aba, the home of Nigerian soccer Enyimba is the old nickname for Aba in the 1950s, and simply means “Mighty City’ The football team was then the ‘Aba Giant Killers’ But today I love the translation as ‘People’s Elephant,’
