  1. How many Nigerian football fans know these players compare to how many EPL, la liga, ligue1, serieA players Nigerian fans know. Obvious answer is the latter. Nigerian football fans are generally not interested in the local league for obvious reasons. Corruption in NFF is among the reason for this lack of interest. Just imagine telling the nation that you do not have money after just hosting FIFA president and other dignitaries. It’s interesting indeed reading the overall player of the season. From next season, CS should be running the week’s XI of the league if not done before as I have not read anything on it in CS. Maybe I did not notice it as I am not interested in the local league. Ironic indeed.

    Over the years we {Nigerians} lost confidence and trust in our national premier league due to poor management and officiating. But today the trust and confidence is gradually taking over in the heart of soccer loving Nigerians. Am really happy and grateful to God for the improvement we are witnessing in our nation league {Npfl}. My best player of the season remains Chisom Egbuchula,my Manager of the season is Imama Ampakabo and my club of the season is the Flying Antelope. Up Rangers.

  4. Until they beam all the matches live and at the same time, I won't spend my time to watching NPFL. why should heartland abandon their last match knowing fully that their suvival depend on it? Instead of NFF officals to go for thorough investigation , they were busy dishing out fine to enriched their fucking pocket.Buhari is watching you people since una no de fear God
