With just minutes to kickoff, I had a nice little conversation with my friend and professional colleague Solace Chukwu. He was, of course reflecting on yesterday's blog before mentioning a new shiny Center Back named on the match day lineup. Stephen Manyo was the name and we mused over him for a bit.

Good morning Guys, So we bounced back. From the midweek calamity in Gombe. Remo led by Kennedy Boboye, they themselves fresh from their home defeat to MFM were looking to spoil our party.
