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:
Good morning Guys. So I'll start with the Aiteo Cup. The venue for our clash with Dynamite Force FC has been released and confirmed to be Nnewi. Is anyone playing in Aba? I'm only asking. I know there used to be Fed Cup games at the Aba Stadium years ago. I haven't seen any games … Continue reading The Management has big big plans for Enyimba
We do appear are the only team still having something in the similitude of a season. The League is over, Heartland and Sunshine have somehow miraculously avoided relegation, the teams are readying for the AIteo FA Cup, including those who will only play one game. For us, our season is still and very well in … Continue reading Hello from Rwanda; our opponents are talking tough
Mornings like this make me wish I don't own this blog. The obligation to write everyday with me battling this sleep is my greatest challenge on earth. Lies. That's not my greatest challenge on earth. My greatest challenge on earth is how to become "slim-fit" again. The draw we all literally prayed for, came home … Continue reading Early thoughts on our Rayon Sport date.
Good morning Guys, New week, new month, and gradually the year is wrapping up. Apologies for the No Show yesterday. But then again, there wasn't so much by way of events to keep us scribbling here, so we slept in early and decided to take the day off here on the blog. The big news … Continue reading CAF Confederations Cup Draws: who gets Enyimba?
The mood around the club and its faithful right now is one of excitement, and rightly so. The victory over CARA Brazzaville, and the joy it fostered, was a fitting way to return to home for Enyimba Football Club. In the end, a draw would have done to qualify, but it would have been an … Continue reading Corner-kick: Mfon Udoh returns with something new in his locker
Last night, ladies and gentlemen was a kind reminder of why we love and support this club. Sunday might have been the day where we saw our brand new stadium come back to life but, last night was the mnemonic of what keeps us addicted to this football club. And mind you, brothers and sisters, … Continue reading Enyimba 1-0 CARA: What a Night!
Good morning All, Today is Friday and normally should have been our #ThatEnyimbaFanGiveaway. But for today, we'd take a rain check and get it to return by next week. There are a couple of twitches we are considering - hopefully we will get it all sorted out by next week. There's been rumors of League … Continue reading Enyimba new striker, Sunday Adetunji winning our hearts already…
When Theophilus Afelokhai returned to Enyimba at the start of the season, there were concerns over his physical condition. As a goalkeeper, agility and ease of movement are highly important. If you're going to spend an entire game jumping, lunging, diving, falling and reacting, then your shape is not a light thing. Neither is your … Continue reading Corner-kick: Afelokhai teaches us all an important life lesson
Good morning People, So I'm on a 16-hour bus ride back to school. It's a strange trip because for the first time in a long long time, my tummy is acting up. Thankfully we had a stop someplace and I went to "relieve" myself - then I advised myself that nothing else, solid or liquid … Continue reading Job done vs Djoliba but the work is far from done
