Clubs you probably don’t know have won the English top division football league title

The English football league is the oldest professional football league set up in the world, it was founded in 1888 as football league, a top level football league in England with 12 clubs initially participating as at the time and until 1892 when the inclusion of more clubs enabled division system in the league in which its topflight was later named English football league division 1 and until 1992 when a new topflight league was created from the division 1 called the FA premier league. History reveals that for 104 years of its existence as English football league division 1 no single club managed to remain ever present in the division unlike in most other leagues in Europe which clearly illustrate the level of its competitive nature which may be explaining why the later English premier league is so unpredictable and much interesting than some of the leagues in Europe. A total of 24 teams have lifted the English topflight football league trophy and some of this winners have gone unnot…

2018 World Cup qualifying game (Nigeria vs Zambia)

The World Cup qualifying game coming up on Saturday, 7th October 2017 at Uyo between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Chipolopolo of Zambia is a match any football fan in Nigeria cannot afford to miss. This is a game that may appear to surprise everyone at the end and as at now, it is a trending topic on local sports programs and outlet. The interesting thing about the game is that a win for Nigeria will secure an automatic ticket while a win for Zambia will raise their hope of qualifying for the world cup in 2018 by closing the gap between both teams so it will be an extremely intense match, however, don't hate me I'm having that feeling that the game might just end in a draw which is not too bad and not too good for both teams this implies that the Super Eagles chance of qualifying for the World Cup will be postponed until the last game against Algeria which we don't want to look forward to though that doesn't mean I'm a very bad fan or unpatriotic Nigerian fo…

Great leadership a tool for African governance

In Africa, it is unfortunate that for many years leadership has failed us since independence from colonial slavery there has been an emergence of a new form of slavery born from bad leadership. African Leaders have not yielded any success except for the likes of Nelson Mandela and Kwame Nkrumah. Though physically free but mentally enslaved and until a standard is set for good leadership then maximum potentials will not be reached.
One of the factors that enhance good governance is good leadership. A Leader generally sets direction, builds an aspiring vision and creates something new. Former Activist/President Late Dr Nelson Mandela, Late President Abraham Lincoln, Activist Late Dr Martin Luther King and Late President Mahatma Gandhi to mention a few were pacesetters for the liberation of their people and their beliefs. Our predecessors have left good qualities and roles of good leadership but it seems their proteges have only learnt to use their positions to exploit humanity.  The holy…

Past English topflight football league records that will be very difficult to break

English top-flight football league started as far back as 1888 and have been a yearly contest in sports calendar ever since then apart from some couple of years absence due to world wars interference. After various studies on the league, I noticed that some past set records in the league have stood till date and will be very difficult to overcome in the present day English top-flight football league (English Premier League). So I have decided to share some of these long-standing records which will be very difficult to break.

Team’s record
TOP-FLIGHT TITLES Top-flight title winner at first attemptThis was a record set by Ipswich Town in 1961/1962 season this record still stands till date and will continue to stand for centuries to come I guess. Do you think any first time promoted club to the English Premier League will win the title at first attempt anytime soon? I don’t think so.

Possible Europe top 10 football league winner’s in 2017/2018 season

Certainly, there is no continental football that can stand/match European football at the moment, Europe football is actually the most fascinating football in terms of organization, management, entertainment, competitiveness, media strength, quality and even financial aspects in which anyone ambitious to play football would love to achieve their dreams in Europe and of course where else can one achieve it bigger if not Europe. So based on the coefficient ranking system on uefa.com of the top football league in Europe, I have decided to predict the top 10 football league winners for 2017/2018 season. Enjoy.



Spanish La Liga



The Spanish La Liga has been a shared title for sometimes now between two world football giant clubs, Real Madrid FC and FC Barcelona in which choosing a winner among them is very tough although Atletico Madrid FC is their potentially strong competitor if they can retain their current form but for now La Liga title prediction is between Real Madrid FC and FC Barcelona…

Which team will lift the English premier league trophy 2017/2018 season?

English premier league(EPL) is regarded as one of the most competitive top football league in Europe since its inception in 1992 although English clubs has begun to experience rapid depreciation in form in Europe’s international cup competition known as UEFA Champions League(UCL) and still with that their strength and potential cannot be undermined however with their loss of form in UCL the English premier league keeps gaining momentum seasons by seasons in which I could simply say that it is the most unpredictable league in Europe irrespective of its Clubs limitations in the UCL. Notwithstanding the EPL comprises of 20 teams competing with each other for 1 trophy in which a winner must emerge. So which team will win the trophy in 2017/2018 season, the EPL is very tough to predict for now as compared to any other top football league in Europe.
