Finally, the wait is over! The NPFL got started as there was a game yesterday evening. 4 of our former players were on parade for a certain side and one even captained them. 9 more games will go on today, ours and 8 others. For us, it is a late lunch date with Lobi Stars.
After our post yesterday, we got to know that Franco has returned to camp and will be with the team for this season which is nothing but excellent news. You want all the better legs out there for our title challenge this season. His contributions to the team last season was immense and we surely would be s stronger team with him in the side.
We also got to hear from the gaffer yesterday via the pre game chat dispersed by the Enyimba media team. Our expectations are high and we are confident that Aigbogun 2.0 would be a very good upgrade on previous versions. Kudos to the Enyimba Media team for making that work. Such things help we fans get closer to our darling club as information, they say, is power.
Aigbogun 2.0 pointed out that Lobi might not be truly known tactics wise but he knows most their players and can decipher how they might behave. The best part of the interview was when he said that every game will be treated the same way. We play the Enyimba both at home and away from home. That’s exactly how a good side approach games.
We lost this fixture last season but Lobi don’t have their prolific dangerman who helped them win it last season in the mould of Anthony Okpotu. We also have 5 players with him in Morocco and captain Mfon Udoh might not feature as he is making his comeback from injury.
Im curious to see the guys who lineup for us today. It should be a strong squad but a few injury concerns mean we may do without a few familiar names. Hopefully we will finally break our Aper Aku stadium hoodoo and kick off our season with a well deserved victory!
We also wish the CHAN Eagles luck. Congratulations to the Falconets, an awesome goal from Rasheedat Ajibade, helped them beat the South African female U20 side 2-0 yesterday.
We’ll be back tomorrow and we hope their will be reasons to be happy.
