Good morning Guys,
Finally, the game is upon us. The much discussed, much debated game is right here before us. Table topping Giwa FC face their biggest task of the season so far- an evening date with the Original Elephants.
The fact they are called Elephants does not in any way suggest that they are any way close to us in quality, achievements and pedigree. If you name your child Bill Clinton, does that mean he automatically is the 42nd President of the United States of America?
What we however cannot deny is that they have had an enviable start to the season, pushing that first loss of the season right behind them and have surprised everyone else.
They come into Aba in high spirits, full of confidence and broadly grinning to tag of title contenders. Of course they also have revenge on their minds. To taint the record of the manager who abandoned them last season.
For us, this might not be the best time to play them courtesy of the recent goings-on within our camp. But on the other hand, what more emphatic way to prove your seriousness than to beat the ‘best performing team so far’ blue and black?
However way you view this fixture, whatever results gotten from it will have a corresponding interpretation. By the end of ninety minutes, either team would have shown how good they are for this season’s race.
In terms of selections, we could see massive changes. Bright Esieme and Idris Aloma should return to the full back positions while Uche John should partner Udoji in defence.
Razak Aliyu should be in the DM role with Kamal out injured while Emmanuel Egesi could make his home debut.
Striker Mfon Udoh will sit out this one and Ifeanyi Anaemena would also be missing courtesy of the LMC’s provisional clearance directive.
We could see
Moses Ocheje, Idris Aloma, Chinedu Udoji, Uche John, Bright Esieme, Razak Aliyu, Nzube Anaezemba, Emmanuel Egesi, Peter Onyekachi, Chinonso Okonkwo, Daniel Etor.
Probably the best we can lay our hands on at the moment but they are god enough to get the job done.
For some of your far away from the Stadium, we will have a live blog for you on the site. Teams will be in from 3:30. Just click on the LIVE menu on the top of the page and lets push away this fake elephant out of the way.
This is not the center where we will see another away win, No it wont.
Here’s to a happy three points.
