vogt go home

after this stunningly sad match between Nigeria and Ghana, it is time to give Vogt, the current coach of the Super Eagles, a long overdue boot. What type of nonsense soccer/football was Nigeria playing this evening? The Nigerian soccer team needs a revolution (sorry to borrow your term solomonsydelle). maybe instead of recruiting soccer players from posh leagues in the West they should recruit some boys from the streets of Aba, Ibadan, Kaduna who would actually care about doing well in such games since their livelihoods depended on it. I mean c'mon Super Eagles, the Black Stars were down by one man.....how sad, how sad....

I promise, this will be my last sports commentary of any kind until 2010....seriously. now back to our regularly scheduled program....

and I will get back to all of your comments and emails soon, I just really had to get this one off my chest...

    I do not like these overpaid international players, they score more goals for their clubs than their country. Maybe the coach should get another last chance?

  1. as far as i am concerned, sports commentary, as long as its soccer-related, is always welcome:)...

    ...nonetheless, naija na real fuck up...coach or no coach...the fact that those fools won't respect a naija born coach, means we have to pay for foreigners who could care less how we do and know less about how we play best...

    ...i agree, maybe we should just collect area boys to play...they at least would see the opportunity as a way to represent their country and maybe even gain an outside contract and leave...the amount of pride people show when they play for their country and our own act as if when they remove their cleats, there is no smell emitting...lie lie...so disappointing...
