Eagles victory, Kanu Nwankwo and our beautiful Abuja stadium clips

It was very nice attending my first international game this year in the Abuja national stadium.

The last time I saw the Eagles perform was in Johanesburg against Argentina, so  I found myself comparing this atmosphere with that of the world cup last year.

 

The choice of starting the Nigeria v Ethiopia game at 7pm was actually brilliant, the tempreature is cooler, more people could attend and remarkably it highlighted the beauty of the stadium, at least i thought so...

The Eagles put up a good performance , and as predicted by some we gave Ethiopia what can only be described as a thrashing. (Nigeria 4 - Ethiopia 0 )

At half time , there was a surprise appearance by our great Kanu Nwankwo, he jogged  round the pitch and was  cheered  by thousands of fans in the crowd.

 

Overall everything went very well , security was good, the game was good, the evening was good and then just as we were leaving, a little Nigerian factor crept into the whole show, most of the turnstiles (Gates) in my section were closed.

People had to start climbing the fence to jump over and you could see the makings of a stampede coming up,  We made a quick decision and left swiftly but I couldnt help thinking , in the world cup last year , I remeber them specifically opening all the gates at the end of each game to prevent this kind of scenario.

I HOPE WE CAN EMULATE THAT SOMEDAY.

 

 

 


Nigerian interest in buying Newcastle United off Mike Ashley for £400million (updated)

UPDATED:

What ever happens this is guaranteed to raise various kinds of debates/media buzz.

For a good idea of what some Newcastle supporters think about the Idea of being bought out by a Nigerian consortium  of business men read this

Media buzz read this.

Dear Mr Ashley. Greetings. Firstly, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, I assure you that all will be well at the end of the day.

Let me start by introducing myself to you. It may surprise you to receive this email from me, since there was no previous correspondence between us. I am the representative of a Nigerian Consortium. My purpose in contacting you is to help secure the football club you are in the process of running into the ground. My clients have £400m (or £480m, or £350m, depending on which paper you read) in an account at a Bank.

This Bank has issued me a notice to contact anyone in possession of a) a football club and b) a creeping sense of panic and desperation. Hence I am contacting you with regards to ensuring a happy and amenable swap. Just send us your bank details and football club and we will deposit £400m (or £480m, or £350m, depending on etc and so on) into your account. In return, you must give up this ridiculous notion of hiring Kenny Dalglish, Terry Venables or David O'Leary and, instead, give Newcastle hero Kevin Keegan his job back. We have a further £75m to deposit in his account so he can blow it on tat like he did at Manchester City. Oh, and he has to sign Yakubu, 'cos he's Nigerian.

If you wish to achieve this goal with me, kindly get back to me on my private email address: NigerianConsortium@hotmail.com.

Regards

Nigerian Consortium

Nigeria's Bid is for real

Personally I just see different angles to this story...

If Newcastle owner Mike Ashley last week said he wanted to end his involvement with the soccer club, following hostility from fans. (bear in mind Oyibo fans ooh!)

What will happen when the club is now taken over by this consortium of Nigerian business men and the fans are pissed off.  (banana peels,  come to mind)

Lets be real in 2008 anyone can own a club if they really wanted to, everyday people who love football  recently put less than $80 together and bought this club .

One Nigerian business man Aliko Dangote   if he wanted could buy the club and even invest in it if it was that  much of a good deal. (and there exists a few more after-all this is a country with 170 million people)

Why all this fuss ? Nigerians specialise in buying anyway.

The headline news  for me would have been Nigerians put together a team of A list footballers in Peckham  invested $500 million and now it is a premier league club.

Or even better Nigerian business men put together $250 million in Nigeria  and now created the best team in the world. we have players in every significant football legue in this world so how far fetched is it to own  shares in a club.

The Arab guys who own clubs in England, sell oil like we do but don't have international players like we do so whats the big fuss?

I think the Idea is alright, unless there is  a PR stunt somewhere in the mix.
Because in  the world of big business especially in Nigeria, the guy who comes to the table and says I have $700 million but need $100 million most definitely has the $100 million outside in the trunk. And In almost  every  case the deal is struck before the anoucement is made.

So if this is the true position that extra money will be raised easily.

Read the original story about New castle's sale below

Chris Nathaniel, the man who unleashed Rio’s World Cup Wind-Ups on an unsuspecting nation, has emphasised that his  fronting of an unlikely £400 million bid to buy Newcastle United is not a vehicle for his latest foray into football’s version of candid camera.
Abujacitycomnewcastle
This Bid is being organised via  NVA and Chris Nathaniel if successful it would be the first premier league owned by Africans...

Chris Nathaniel founded the group in 2005, specialising in Music, Sport, Sport Management, TV etc etc - so it would seem that handling the potential purchase of NUFC is a huge project for him and an ambition to have the first African owned Premier League club.

NVA operate out of the UK, so will be dealing with Seymour Pierce.

NVA are widely known in the music industry for championing people such as Dizzy Rascal. In footballing terms, they were also responsible for Andy Cole and Sam Sodje, organising there transfers to and from clubs since 05.

Makes you wonder..

Could be the next greatest wind up or not.

All eyes are on this one as the usual media outlets are preparing for a grand piss take as is customary, anything other outcome would be a little difficult to digest after all it is a easier to take cheap shots at Africa in general so watch this one plays out closely.

An appeal to support the Abuja 2014 bid

Abjua2014_2

Last call ! Commonwealth games 2014, destination....

Abuja, Nigeria, Africa.

On the 9th of  November 2007, the executive committee of the commonwealth games foundation will meet to decide who gets to host the 2014 commonwealth games currently the two cities bidding are

Glasgow in the UK and Abuja in Nigeria.

Both cities are remarkable in their own right and I’m sure are capable of hosting this world class event to the highest of standards. But this campaign today is for  Abuja, Nigeria and the whole of Africa.

.

This is the vision taken from the constitution of the commonwealth games Federation

To promote a unique, friendly, world class Commonwealth Games and to develop sport for the benefit of the people, the nations and the territories of the Commonwealth, and thereby strengthen the commonwealth.

Africa, with  many countries in the commonwealth has contributed immensely to all kinds of sports throughout the commonwealth but since its inception (the games) in Canada1930, The continent has never hosted a single game. 

Nigeria in 2003 hosted the all Africa games successfully in Abuja, with 7 000 athletes from Africa participating it is Africa’s largest sporting event. Thanks to Oil revenue and Chinese business savvy, top class facilities were constructed for this event

For the commonwealth games we can do the same, what ever infrastructure/security that is needed just let us know …2014, we can do it.

Democracy, Poverty,Niger delta crises, resource control, religious /ethnic divide, corruption,  19 scams, don’t worry!  (all countries have problems) We are working to resolve all that .

In 2014, Nigeria will be 100 years old, that farcical experimentation in amalgamation will still be surging ahead, against all odds, in true African style.

Africa needs help, but not the image of drooling African diseased infested child begging for a savior kind of help we are constantly bombarded with on the TV screens.

Africa needs to regain its pride, Africa needs to regain hope, Abuja, just needs a chance!

Just like the football world cup taking place for the first time on the African continent in South Africa in 2010.

We need young African athletes aspiring to represent their respective countries in the commonwealth in 2014.

We need the creation of jobs, housing, infrastructure and some good news for a change.

We need other member states of the commonwealth to show their confidence and support for Africa by voting Abuja as the host city for 2014.

What you can do ?  Dont just sit back , join our campaign.

Calling on all friends of Abuja, Friends of Nigeria, friends of Africa friends of the common wealth and friends in general.

We barely have enough time,

so please support our campaign

Join the group on facebook. or
By sending a link of this posting to as many people as possible. or by sending an e-mail to worldhaveyoursay@bbc.co.uk with the email header   Glasgow/ Abuja 2014, give Africa a chance ”
The Idea is to bring this debate to the forefront before the final decision in November 2007.
