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. Just like … Continue reading Tornadoes 0-0 Enyimba; If you don’t have hope, what do you have?
Good morning Guys, The blog was mute in the buildup to the game and that's appearing normal nowadays. Well, we won but I'll like to ask - why in the world do we have neither of Onuwa, Ibenegbu nor Jean Marie staring our home games? How do we have decent creative midfielders who never see … Continue reading Enyimba 2-0 Rivers United: Back to life
Good morning Guys. We have our season off to a flier having dismantled, dismissed, distorted, destroyed MFM in Aba on Sunday. I know some of you will wanna pick up on the lines I used above and try to turn this into more than it was planned to be. We just beat them 2-0, that's … Continue reading Enyimba 2-0 MFM: New Season and off to a flier
Good morning Brethren, The lads played out a goalless draw with Rayon Sport in Kigali yesterday as both teams sought a semifinals ticket in the ongoing CAF Confederations Cup. Here's my three things from that fixture. 1. Not a bad result but are we capable of better? Failing to concede away from home in this … Continue reading Three things: Rayon 0-0 Enyimba:
Enyimba need to take the wages of the entire back four, put it together, and pay it to Theophilus Afelokhai. #DLBEFC -@TheOddSolace It's interesting to note that the two surprise starters - Afelokhai and Adetunji justified their inclusion on both ends, with the goalkeeper keeping Enyimba in the game till added time when the striker … Continue reading Afelokhai magic and Adetunji superb debut lay foundation for good away day in Mali
Good morning All, Our CAF Confederations Cup campaign remains on track after we saw off the challenge of Ivorian side Williamsville in Port Harcourt yesterday. Our favorite Enyimba striker Ibrahim Mustapha got the only goal of the game just after 7 minutes, it proved enough. The game itself was hardly a stellar show with lots … Continue reading Enyimba 1-0 Williamsville
Good morning. So, it was Italian winger Annibale Frossi who put forward the rather interesting theory that the perfect result of a football game ought to be 0-0. That way, it was clear that a perfect equilibrium had been achieved between the attacks and defences of both sides. That an interesting point of view if … Continue reading Enyimba 0-0 MFM; Goals? What are those?
Good morning Guys, So our Champions League campaign is ended. Just in case you're the only one in Israel who hasn't heard, we couldn't get the result we needed in Egypt and thus we are knocked out following a 1-0 defeat. @TheOddSolace won the bid to write today's blog and his thoughts are below. - … Continue reading CAF Champions League: Knocked down and Out, Zamalek 1-0 Enyimba
Good morning Guys, So it ended 1-1 and even though there would be disappointed Enyimba fans all across the country, we still have to do the needful, which is 'try to make sense of it all and move on'. I didn't see the game, I was on official duty, and hopefully Supersport will have it … Continue reading Disappointed with the result but don’t you just love Samson Unuanel?
Good morning Everyone, There wasn't any sense putting up a post before 8:30 am this morning knowing that the second half of Rivers United vs Enyimba game would be played today. The first half which was played yesterday saw us practically overwhelm them in the opening period and it had to be a slice of … Continue reading … Rivers United 0-1 Enyimba
