A lot happened on the international scene last weekend. It was a weekend of controversial penalties with Manchester United as one of the beneficiaries with the other city rival suffering on the other side.
Bolton are set to receive an apology from referee Rob Styles for his astonishing penalty mistake at Old Trafford. The official will say sorry for awarding United a spot-kick when Cristiano Ronaldo was clearly tackled fairly by Jlloyd Samuel.Well pity the Reebok boys. The harm has already been done. 'Rob Styles Again'!Why is it always Rob Styles? Maybe we leave that for future discussion.
Chelsea and Liverpool as well as the Old Trafford team all won their games with 2-0 each.
However, the exception was Arsenal whose lackluster performance against hull city saw them lose to Hull City. I heard the last time Arsenal Lost to Hull was in 1915. Waoh! No wonder the manager says this was his biggest win in his Career.
Hull City was seen taking the game to the gunners on Saturday right there at the Emirates. At the end of the first half, the Hull City gaffer claims he was angry with his wards for not going all out for a win.
Well the gunners will have to stop underrating teams if they hope to have a go at the League title this term.
Back home, i heard in the news a name i have always wished never again find its way into our football circles. ONIGBINDE! What the heck is anyone expecting from this man? This is a man that only knows how to get on the pages of newspapers and he does this better than putting up a trophy-winning team.
Embattled Dike seems on the verge of being booted out after the dismal display of losing to a team we all can't believe. The NFF thinks recycling this same coaches who have failed in the past is the solution.
The former Super Eagles chief coach Adegboye Onigbinde has emerged the number one candidate to replace the embattled Golden Eaglets chief coach Alphonsus Dike in the national U-17 team.
and the coach has been invited for discussions on the new task.
with the one time African Football Of The Year, Emmanuel Amuneke as his likely assistant.
I sincerely hope this is not another decision of the NFF we all will regret in future.
