Good morning Guys and a happy new week.
A brace by new boy Sunday Adetunji and one from Ifeanyi Anaemena from the spot gave us a 3-0 victory over Wasiu Alalade’s cousins in Warri yesterday. A game initially announced by the NFF for Benin was changed last minute and with it, my hard earned cash went puffs as I already paid someone to do live updates for us.
Sometimes when we slam the administrators here on the blog, it feels as though we are bored for what to write but isn’t this a problem? My good intentions were to get our fans live match updates via our platform here but the venue was changed overnight and aside the clubs, no one else was communicated this info.
Cash gone and services paid for wasn’t delivered because it wasn’t the fault of the guy I sent. I haven’t told this story above for anyone to feel sorry for me or reimburse me but just so these folks know how vital it is to divulge public information such as this. We call this our Football because we are emotionally connected to the club and such we thrive on information and at times as this, we have lost money due to somebody’s lapses.
The gaffer started an eleven most of which, we would most likely see in Rwanda next weekend. Theo Afelokhai, Yinka Onoalapo, Udoh Ikouwem, Dare Ojo, Ifeanyi Anaemena, Isiaka Oladuntonye, Stanley Dimgba, Freedom Omofoman, Stephen Chukwude, Sunday Adetunji while there was a place for mid-season signing Jean-Marie Guera.
It was interesting to see the new guy’s contribution and I dare say we do have a decent player on our hands, it’s unfortunate that we can’t call him up for the remaining Continental fixtures having himself played for Energy FC, a side we had dispatched on the Continent earlier in the season. He had a fine game in that 4-3 away defeat to Nasarawa and yesterday again, he impressed in the number 10 role.
But the goals would come from new boy Sunday Adetunji and Ifeanyi Anaemena. The central defender scored early in the second half, sandwiched by Adetunji’s brace – one goal in each half. There wasn’t much to scare us by way of upset but the sad news was a reoccurrence of Yinka’s knee injury halfway through the game.
Dare Ojo would slot in at right back while Austin Oladapo replaced the injured Onaolapo. For Ibrahim Mustapha, he would replace Stephen Chukwude at the start of the second period while Wasiu Alalade did have a late show for two goal hero Adetunji.
Good day in the office, job well done and into the next round we march.
