By the numbers - Sterling City, Chelsea blues

The English Premier League is back - and so are we!

The EPL -- and Ligue 1 -- kicked-off the 2019-20 season for the top European leagues, and brought with it that familiar concoction of drama, goals, and madness. Last year's pace setters picked up where they left off - Liverpool beat newly promoted Norwich City 4-1 and Manchester City defeated West Ham United 5-0. Arsenal registered a 1-0 win against Newcastle United away, while Manchester United put Chelsea to the sword with a 4-0 win at home....

Nigeria footballers must learn from Chukwueze's Roc Nation deal

Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze's deal with music mogul Jay-Z's Roc Nation management company has catapulted the Nigeria player, only recently a bench warmer, into the spotlight.

At the recent Africa Cup of Nations, Chukwueze shoved his way into the starting line-up after sitting behind the likes of Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu, going on to star against South Africa in the round of 16, and forming a key part of the Super Eagles' bronze-winning campaign.

This, along with efforts for his club in...

Nigeria is distinctly absent from Europe's transfer windows

With Nigeria finishing third in the recent Africa Cup of Nations, not a bad result though also not what Super Eagles fans were after, the lack of transfer interest in their players is glaring.

Europe's big leagues appear to have little interest in African football's biggest team, and with the transfer window slowly closing, there's little sign that will change.

Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was a rare player to garner attention from a big club, as reports suggested Manchester United could be...

Will Guardiola vs. Klopp be the next great Premier League rivalry?

When asked directly about his relationship with Jurgen Klopp at the end of last season, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola spoke of a "beautiful rivalry" between himself and the Liverpool manager.

It was forged during their time as rivals in Germany, with Guardiola's Bayern Munich consistently topping Klopp's Borussia Dortmund, and the battle for supremacy is now fully alive again in the Premier League. Last season, Guardiola and City claimed domestic superiority only for Klopp and Liverpool...

The next Mikel or Ighalo isn't going to come from Nigeria's league

While Cup Final weekend is upon Nigeria, as Kano Pillars go up against Niger Tornadoes to determine who wins the 2019 Aiteo Cup on Sunday, the talk is still on the Super Eagles' Afcon campaign.

Conversation in Nigeria remains centred on the future of coach Gernot Rohr as the team's failure to reach the continental final continues to enrage, but little has been said about the team itself. Specifically, the loss of key personnel.

And therein lies the crux of the matter. The Aiteo final, and the domestic...

Rohr debate misses the point about Nigerian shortcomings

While the African Cup of Nations final may have been tough to watch, Steve Nicol says Algeria's defence deserves a lot of credit for their victory.

For a record eighth time in their history, Nigeria came away from an African Nations Cup campaign brandishing bronze medals around their necks.

It is not just a record for Nigeria, but also for the tournament. No other country has more third-place finishes in the history of the competition.

When in the past this final podium place has been celebrated as a "golden bronze", this time emotions have been more varied. Nations Cup winner Segun Odegbami vehemently refused to celebrate it.

There are those,...
