Is Oliseh really matured for the job at hand?….

Above is the first post… out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh…

Above is the after thought post….


Yesterday, The Super Eagles defeated Cameroon by three un-replied goals in a friendly match played in Brussels, Belgium. The goals were scored by Efe Ambrose, Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo. Cameroon had a man sent off before Nigeria’s second goal. What baffled many was coach Sunday Oliseh’s rush to twitter to take “his pound of flesh”. For some reasons, he tried to correct himself later. NFF made us believe that whatever crisis in the Super Eagles camp is under control. With Oliseh’s posture, we doubt this. Did the lies cause the 2 -0 defeat to Congo? How many more matches will those lies make us lose? Or the truth make us win? Is this our coach actually matured to lead the lads? So many questions really but time will tell.

Platini ban appeal rejected by FIFA….

Michel Platini

Michel Platini’s appeal against his 90-day suspension from football activity has been rejected by FIFA’s Ethics Committee, which said he was questioned by investigators for five hours in the days beforehand. He was given the ban on 8 October while an investigation into corruption allegations is conducted, however his lawyers claimed he had not had chance to defend himself. The Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee said Platini had been interviewed for five hours on 1 October. A spokesperson said: “The argument put forward by Michel Platini’s lawyers that their client had not had the possibility to defend himself before the Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee before his suspension is not valid. “After the Investigatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee had heard him for more than five hours on October 1, 2015 (with the hearing documented on more than 50 pages), the chairman of the Adjudicatory Chamber, Hans-Joachim Eckert, did not see a need for a second hearing with Mr Platini.”
