Chelsea and Mourinho, Leicester city and Ranieiri..Do footballers now have so much power in the football game? (Editorial)

On Monday night, Leicester city shocked the football world by beating Liverpool 3-1, and the performance was do dogged and reminiscent of last season's performances that led them to a historic premier league title win.

It was their first game following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri and the installment of Craig Shakespeare as caretaker boss, moving the club out of the Premier League bottom three as two goals from Jamie Vardy and a Danny Drinkwater strike saw off Liverpool.

It was gathered that top players in the club like Marc Albrighton, captain Wes Morgan, Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel met with the club's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha following their 2-1 Champions League defeat in Seville last week Wednesday to demand for his sack, saying they didn't believe in his abilities anymore, and then on Thursday he was sacked.

Flash back to December 2015, when Chelsea sacked Jose Mourinho, their most successful manager in the history of the club after a run of poor results, just 7 months after winning the EPL title and capital one cup for the club..

Reports had it that Mourinho had a broken down relationship with top stars at the club like Eden Hazard, John Mikel Obi, John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Diego Costa. It was also reported that this players contacted owner Roman Abramovich (who they have his phone number) to complain that they didn't like Mourinho's coaching style again.

That season he was branded the 'unhappy one', a different and totally negative nickname compared to his well known 'the special one'.

The nail in the coffin was after Chelsea's 2-1 loss to Leicester city, the defence looked shabby, and there was no hunger in the eyes of the players as they lost to a vibrant Leicester side.

According to DailyMail sports writer, Martin Samuel,
'Losing the dressing room is an old football cliche, but after Leicester it is fair to say Mourinho had less of a future in man management than Captain Bligh the day The Bounty set sail from Tahiti.'

Mourinho after the Leicester city loss attacked his players:
“My board, my club I don’t think it’s right that I go to them and say these players are not good, we need to spend £50m or £100m or whatever, I don’t think it’s fair,” he said. “We have these players and it’s with these players we have to go. The players that are not performing well, they must feel attacked in their pride and their self-esteem and they have to do everything to get results in a humble way.
“I don’t think in this moment they can feel they are top players or they can feel they are superstars. They have to look at the Leicester boys and to feel these are the stars, these are the top players. They have to look to Sunderland and Watford and say: ‘We are at the same level. I am not the superstar, I am not the player of the season, I am not the world champion, I am not the Premier League champion. At this moment, I am at your level.’”

Leicester city players too are now regarded on social media as snakes..Anyone who watched Monday night's thrashing of Liverpool, will know that this was a particularly different side from the one who played shabby football the last nine months. Bar N'golo Kante, Leicester city still had the same crop of players who won them the league last season. While Chelsea in 2016 also had almost the same set of players (bar Didier Drogba) that won them the 2015 premier league title..So is this player power in effect?
Can footballers now decide to 'shut up shop' whenever they feel like, or whenever they want a coach to be sacked?. Some of this players earn as much as £200,000 per week.. It is demanded from them to put their hearts out and fight with all body,mind and soul whenever they put on the jersey of their club.. If they can't fight for the exorbitant fees they receive as salaries, then at least they should fight for the club crest, the fans who sweat through their pockets to watch them play and the millions of soccer fans who watch them worldwide.

Football needs to get it's sanity back! and soon.... If players feel they can act anyhow and play anyhow knowing that the blame will fall on the coach, then coaches are in for some real trouble.. If not how do you explain a team who won the premier league in 2015 (Chelsea), languishing in 16th position in 2016, or a team who won the EPL in 2016 (Leicester) in 17th position, 9 months later??.
The game of football doesn't need 'snakes' and if it were possible for players to be sacked instantly like coaches then everyone will sit up...

Photos: BankyW confirms a fire incident occurred at his Lekki home, narrates what happened

In the early hours of today, there was a fire incident at BankyW's home in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos (See here here). The singer has now revealed all that went down. In a post made via his Instagram page just now, he wrote,

So there's good news and bad news. The good news is... I'm thanking God that I'm alive to give the bad news as a testimony. Bad news is...

I was laying awake in bed at about 6am , and I just started smelling smoke. Stood up to shut off my tv and ac and realized it was coming from outside my door. Opened it to see the whole stairway was filled with huge gusts of black smoke/soot, and a fire was burning stuff downstairs. The smoke was so much I couldn't get down past it to see the source of the flames. Rushed back into my room and climbed down from the 2nd floor balcony with my dog... and then got help from the amazing workers and neighbours who helped me put out the flames.

Turns out the ac in the living room had caught fire.. I know a lot of ppl have been trying to call and I appreciate it. Maybe the fire burnt some of the network in the house because I can't receive calls LOL 😂, but instead of calling to say sorry pls just maybe say a prayer and thank God with me.

Thank God I was awake to smell the smoke. Thank God we caught it early enough and the damage wasn't so bad.. it basically burnt some of the stuff that was around it. So awards, portraits, and some small electronics. But thank God, Duke and I are alive and well. We only had to form James Bond and climb down from the top floor balcony LOL 😂😁 Thank God for my neighbors and the amazing workers in and around the compound for helping us escape via the balcony, helping put out the fire, and helping with the aftermath/cleaning.

Thank God for life. And I'm not even upset.. I'm just grateful for life and health and for the grace and mercy of God on my life. I figure I'm about to have the best year ever so the devil tried to throw a tantrum. But not today Satan. Not today, not ever. Now sit back and watch me be great. By God's grace. Amen. God bless you all.

NEW MUSIC:Black Magic – Trouble Ft. Myst

Black Magic – Trouble Ft. Myst
The Afro hip-pop artiste whose most recent release was in September is back at it again and has officially kicked off the year with the drop of his new single titled ‘Trouble‘.
The song which features long time collaborator and producer, Xela (Repete, Wonder) serves as the first offering from his upcoming “7 Love Letters” project, a seven track EP he plans to release in a few weeks.
Pleasantly so, the new track is exactly what fans been waiting for and it sounds like an absolute appetizer for what’s to come.
The best thing about this song is how Blackmagic is able to show off his range and display his abilities in full view thanks to wonderful production work from Xela. The duo keep finding ways of ingeniously fusing afrobeat with contemporary hip-pop rhythm and here they were quarterbacked beautifully by the amazing vocals of Myst who delivered her hook to perfection (quite a catchy hook too). The result is one of the best songs you’ll listen to this year and one that will have you singing along in no time.
With new singles due off the Love Session Project, it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing more of Blackmagic, and hopefully he’ll continue to capture our attention with his well… magical music.

Man U fans should go to Ibrahimovic's house if it will make him sign a new contract - Jose Mourinho

Former Ajax, Juventus, Barca and PSG star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is yet to sign a new contract extension with Manchester United, and coach Jose Mourinho, fresh from winning the English Football League Cup on Sunday night, has urged Man U fans to go to his house and sleep there all night if that's what it'll take to make him sign new deal with the club.
Zlatan, 36, has been in astronomical and sensational for Man U this season, scoring 26 goals for United in his maiden season for the club, with his two goals in Sunday Night's final enough to give Mourinho's men EFL cup success.

Ibrahimovic signed a one year deal with Man U, and has an option to extend for a further year, but is stalling on contract negotiations, and Mourinho has urged the fans to do the needful.
'I never bank for a player to sign a contract,' Mourinho said to journalists.
'But, if needed, I think maybe United fans can go to the door of his house and stay there all night. If needed, I think they will go for sure.
'We all want and all believe that he is going to stay with us one more season.
'Only a silly player comes to England when he is 35-years-old and with the successful career that Zlatan has. Only a silly player comes here if he doesn't feel that he can do it.
When he decides to take the challenge to come to a country like this and to a club like Manchester United, he takes that decision because he feels ready.
'The most important feeling is his feeling. I don't bring him here if he doesn't want to come, if he's not ready. It's his character mine. Everything is from him, nothing from me.'
Ibrahimovic, who won his 32nd trophy, with the EFL Cup success said;
'This is what I came for,'
'I came to win and I am winning. I just have to keep going, but the more I win the more satisfied I get.
'You appreciate it more the older you get. In the beginning it is more like fun, you don't realise what a trophy means.
'The older I get, the more mature I get, the more I am surrounded by a winning mentality. It is all about winning those trophies. This is what I am doing. Wherever I have gone I have won.
'This is what I predicted. Everything I thought would happen has. I think the other ones didn't see it. When I came here to show them what I saw apparently to many I could not do it

41 Nigerian human trafficking victims return from Mali (photos)

41 Nigerian women, some of them in their 20s, who are victims of Human trafficking, returned to Nigeria from Mali, yesterday February 27th. They were received by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, along with officials of the National Agency for Protection and Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and other government officials.
The women arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos in an aircraft belonging to the Nigeria Air Force.

Speaking at the airport, Abike Dabiri-Erewa said

“They were deceived into embarking on the journey. We will ensure we train them to the state of proficiency in different vocations, after which we will trace their parents and counsel them. The NAPTIP has been tasked with rehabilitating the victims. We will monitor the girls for two years so they do not sell their vocational equipment. It goes beyond poverty for them to embark on such a mission. The government had to rescue them because they sent a distress call. This made Buhari direct the service chiefs to wade into the matter to rescue the girls.” More photos below...

Donald Trump says Obama is behind protests at GOP tonwhalls and leaks coming from the White

President Donald Trump says he believes former President Barack Obama is behind angry town hall crowds Republicans face across the country.

Trump in an interview on Fox News' said 'I think he (Obama) is behind it. I also think it is politics, that's the way it is'. Trump then discussed the leaks that have disrupted his first month in office.

"You never know what's exactly happening behind the scenes. You know, you're probably right or possibly right, but you never know. No, I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group, which are really serious because they are very bad in terms of national security. But I also understand that is politics. In terms of him being behind things, that's politics. And it will probably continue."

Dr. Chris Okafor blasts Pastor Tunde Bakare, Rev. Father Mbaka... Demands the release of Nnamdi Kanu

In what many have termed the most heroic act yet by a Nigeria clergyman, Dr. Chris Okafor, the General overseer of Mountain of Liberation and Miracle Ministries, a.k.a Liberation City has truly caused a profound upset to both the political and religious establishment in Nigeria by his fiery admonitions during Sunday service at his church.
The Oracle of God, as he’s fondly called literally went nuclear when he angrily chastised the church leadership in Nigeria and wondered why they are so quiet in the face of mounting confusion, recession, destruction, oppression and killing of Christians in most parts of the country.

The fiery preacher accused most of the leading pastors who should be speaking out against injustice and bad governance of taking bribes like money and oil wells from the government hence their inability to defend Christianity and the masses.

In a video that is now going viral on the Internet, Dr. Chris Okafor called out some big men of God when he angrily yelled, “SHAME UNTO PASTOR TUNDE BAKARE!” Then he preceded, “FATHER MBAKA, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU?”

According to the man of God, Pastor Tunde Bakare was one of those who led the Save Nigeria (SNG) group to occupy Lagos while protesting so called bad governance under former president Jonathan, and was also a very vocal critic of that government. He wondered why Pastor Bakare has gone so silent even when it’s obvious that Nigeria now has a government that is far worse than the one he protested against. Speaking further on pastor Tunde Bakare, the man of God thundered, “That Pastor is a two-faced Pastor!”

On Father Ejike Mbaka, the man of God accused him of disqualifying former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration probably because, as alleged, he requested certain favors from that Government but was turned down. The man of God wondered why Father Mbaka who openly told the world that President Buhari was the messiah has now gone so silent, and is shamefully unable to even criticize his regime in the face of gross misconduct and bad governance. Blowing hot, he said “Mbaka, go and examine your prophetic ministry”. He said that for Father Mbaka to now complain that people are dying of hunger and still find it difficult to criticize the government of the day simply makes him a hypocrite. He then went on to ask, “What has happened to you, Father Mbaka?”

The man of God did not spare the General Overseers of The Redeemed Christian Church of God when he made a veiled reference to the Redeemed Christian Church of God pastor who was killed during a morning cry session on the outskirts of Abuja and how the church played it down. At this he also wondered why the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo who is a pastor, has done so little to help. He also wondered why the General Overseer of Deeper Life Church has been quiet even when members of his church have taken a lot of hit from the massacre of Christians that has been ongoing.

Finally, the man of God also referenced the killing of one Imo State born Christian woman who was a few months ago beheaded in the Northern part of Nigeria. He then said “we also need to know if Rochas Okorocha is a Christian or a Muslim, because those people killed are from Imo State and he did nothing”.

The man of God said that if Christian leaders were speaking out and doing what they were supposed to be doing, we wouldn’t have a country where the rule of law means nothing and the government doesn’t even respect court orders. According to him “ why should Nnadi Kanu still be in detention when the court has given orders for his release? Why can’t they obey the court orders first, and then follow due process? Also, we know Dasuki may have done some things but if the court said you should release him, then release him, and let him have his time in court!” He then went on to say that “as a matter of fact, the Government should release Kanu with immediate effect! We must obey the court and stop taking laws into our own hands
