CAFCL: The Ugly Truth

Good morning everyone. Post is a bit late today. My apologies. I’d tell you why, but I have always been a bit of a tease, so it’s more fun for me if you try to guess. Kept one ear cocked in the direction of the CAF Champions League semi-final first legs last night. You know … Continue reading CAFCL: The Ugly Truth

We Live and Learn 

Good morning all. Our lads are back from Abeokuta, docked safely in Port Harcourt as it happens. Of course, when you set out toward a certain destination, you are doing so expecting to arrive. It is not really news when you do. Then again, you look at the unfortunate incident that befell our brothers Heartland, … Continue reading We Live and Learn 

Ikorodu United 3-2 Enyimba – Blood from a stone

Good morning all. Well, when an Elephant goes scratching under a rock (Abeokuta), it is unlikely to find much edible. No surprises then that we came up dry hump - no points. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Nein. Ugatz (‘The Sopranos’. Sorry, I’ll behave now). The gaffer named a strong starting lineup: Theo Afelokhai in goal, the … Continue reading Ikorodu United 3-2 Enyimba – Blood from a stone

Niger Tornadoes 1-0 Enyimba 

Good morning All. It just didn't happen for us yesterday as we faced Niger Tornadoes in Lokoja.

Great times for Kester; the big man who has made a big impact

Good morning People of the world,  Isn't there something about our number 12 jerseys especially in recent times? They just seem to be loved by all. Rasheed Olabiyi was a fan favorite before he left, Obiozor the season afterward and now the lanky Kelly Kester.  My Cousin @okoroukachigoz1 thinks Kester is his favorite Enyimba player … Continue reading Great times for Kester; the big man who has made a big impact

Dear Enyimba, time to make a bold decision to help our title fight

There are always two ways to look at a game. You can take the result at face value, sing or wail appropriately, and then pray for good fortune in the match(es) to come. On the other hand, you can consider what went before, good or bad, look beyond the scoreline and glean lessons. The latter … Continue reading Dear Enyimba, time to make a bold decision to help our title fight

He's a decent writer and you can tell, just peer below!  - Tuesday at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium Enyimba kissed goodbye to their … Continue reading In this strength, Go ye 

It’s Mamelodi as the Sun comes Down on our Continental Ambition

Good morning Guys,  Tonight we line up against Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa as we formally end a Champions League campaign that was halted eight days ago in Egypt. It's been a very weird campaign in that for the first time in memory, we have gone 5 Match Days without any kind of point.  That's … Continue reading It’s Mamelodi as the Sun comes Down on our Continental Ambition
