CRAZY – How Enyimba Gave up on a Million Dollars!

first_imgI have used the expression ‘gave up’ because there are many who would have said – given our legendary a-bird-in-hand mentality – “forget it, this Spain opportunity we can see, what if we don’t win in Cairo, we would have lost both ways”. C’mon people, if we are ever going to make the NPFL great again it would come from the great stories of conquest at home and abroad, not having our clubs being easy meat.Our clubs cannot be subservient to our national teams or in this case a PR tour. A variant of this that I have in the past howled against is our clubs having to release their key players to national team camps weeks at a time while the league is ongoing. In South Africa clubs only release their players during the FIFA windows, why not the same with us? Again I say, it is the league that is the business not the national teams.Even worse is that, while in South Africa the PSL players form a majority of the national team, in Nigeria we force clubs to collectively release 20 to 40 of the league’s best players to national camps only to take five or less in the end. Imagine Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho being asked to release players to the England squad outside the FIFA window while the league is in session, how is that different from us in Nigeria? I can’t even say Africa, because it is not an African problem, it is a Nigerian problem. Fans go to the stadium to watch the stars and we cannot deprive them of this because some national team coach cannot work with the same timing as his peers around the progressive world.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Larry Osborn of Asbury, Mo., north of Joplin, said he has a bucket list and one of the things he wants to do before he passes on is take a trip from his hometown to Dodge City, Kans. in a covered wagon.Osborn, age 66, is passing through or has past through Wellington with two mares and a covered wagon that is as authentic as the one’s used on the wild frontier days in the late 1880s.“Taking the trip makes me realize and appreciate what the settlers went through in the day,” Osborn said. “Of course they didn’t have black top roads showing them the way. Or cars passing them by going 60 mph.” Osborn and his good friend Joshua Johnson estimate they will be on the road 355 miles. They started last Saturday and said they are about half way on the trip.“On a good day we get in about 26 miles,” Osborn said. “Today we’ll probably get in 22.”Wellington is posing a problem for them due to the amount of road construction in town. They will take their covered wagon north of town and go across because they didn’t want road construction creating problems for the horses.Yesterday evening they had to stop near Oxford due to the thunderstorms. They stayed in the a barn owned by Ryan and Linda Chase.“They were really nice people,” Osborn said. “It’s been a very interesting trip.”last_img read more

PCB returns fire after Danish Kaneria reveals he was discriminated against by the Pakistani…

first_imgImage Courtesy: Times Now/TOIAdvertisement 6htvmuNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsluf8Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E6nrwqf( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 1trccpWould you ever consider trying this?😱z9nn6dCan your students do this? 🌚d7Roller skating! Powered by Firework The Pakistan Cricket Board are on the charge from the international media and the cricketing fandom after Pakistani cricket legend Shoaib Akhtar had revealed that his former teammate Danish Kaneria had faced discrimination from his compatriots for his religion. Now, PCB has come up with a statement to defend the allegations against themselves.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Times Now/TOIAt a sports talk show ‘Game on Hai’, Shoaib Akhtar made a striking revelation about his playing career, during which Kaneria was facing bigotry from fellow Pakistani cricketers for being Hindu, did not even have food with him.Kaneria, who is the second Hindu cricketer after Anil Dalpat to represent Pakistan in international cricket, confirmed Akhtar’s statements.Advertisement In an interview with ANI, he said: “The players who didn’t like to talk to me just because I was a Hindu. Soon I will reveal their names. I did not have the courage to speak in this regard, but now I got the courage to speak on this issue when I heard Shoaib’s statement.”The 39 year old was accused of match fixing by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2010.Advertisement A spokesperson for the PCB, has however dismissed Kaneria and Akhtar’s allegations, and stated that the question should be raised to Kaneria’s teammates, and not the PCB as they had no involvement in this.He told reporters: “Look both Akhtar and Kaneria are retired players they are not contracted to us so they can do or say what they want. It is their opinion. And they are making allegations about behaviour of some players not about the entire Pakistan cricket set-up or board,”“Inzamam-ul-Haq, Rashid Latif, Younis Khan, Muhammad Yousuf, all these guys captained Pakistan when Kaneria was playing. They should respond to what Akhtar and Kaneria are saying. Why should the board get involved?” The spokesperson added.However, Kaneria’s teammates and former Pakistani Test icons Iqbal Qasim and Mohsin Khan have come come forward in moral support.Mohsin said: “A player should only be judged on his cricketing ability and commitments to the team not his religion, colour or creed,” while Qasim added: “If some players have mistreated Kaneria only because of his religion than they must be exposed.” Also read-Shoaib Akhtar makes stunning reveal that Pakistani cricketers didn’t use to even eat with Danish Kaneria because he was Hindu Advertisementlast_img read more
