FOR THE LOVE OF FOOTBALL

It has been quite a calm weekend. We ain’t screaming at the TV screen or bobbing our heads to the movement of the ball as we watch anticipated goal opportunities being missed. Yes, the English Premier League is on holiday, warming up for the next season. It is no news that the underdogs, Leicester City Football Club, won the English Premier League trophy. Very mind boggling, I had to convince myself that a dibia a.k.a juju priest was responsible for this. LOL. Cos how do you want to explain the sudden flip from being the almost relegated team last year to this year’s champions? On the flip side, last year’s champions, Chelsea Football Club, went down the ladder to mid table obscurity this year. In my wild thoughts, I imagined that the winning concoction prepared for Chelsea Football Club by the dibia was mistakenly poured on the wrong blue jersey. Dibia was like, “…blue na blue. I no fit differentiate between SAMSUNG jersey and KING POWER jersey. I just pour the otumokpo(jazz) for the blue shirt wey I see first” . Na so yawa gas o! This is a typical Cinderella story. I know the men would want a masculine description, but I can’t think of any right now. I picked up a few lessons though.

  1.  DREAM BIG
  2. WORK HARD
  3. BE CONSISTENT
  4. BE HUMBLE
  5. WIN

As we await the next season, I already anticipate the drama. With Jose Mourinho back to coach his new team, Manchester United, and with Liverpool’s ┬áJurgen Klopp around, who wouldn’t expect drama and theatrics? We expect mad competition too with Pep Guardiola coming in as Manchester City FC’s manager, rumored news of Jamie Vardy coming to Arsenal and more. One can only start saving for chips and drinks, packs of aspirin and some anti- hypertensive drugs to watch matches. HAPPY NEW WEEK, PEOPLE!
