I one day tried to say something to the CEO of the current UPL and CECAFA Kagame Cup Champions. He never listened for long, for it is his habit to think that he knows it all, as far as football is concerned.
I am sure the reason that Al-Merrikh managers and CAF gave to the Express CEO and he accepted somehow, so that he may calm his players who later accepted to play away from Khartoum in Obeid is that, security-wise, Khartoum was not safe.
The goal-keeping coach who would travel with the team would be Sam Kawalya, not Daniel Kiwanuka.
Godfrey Nyola had to be part of Express’ thin delegation. Express was eliminated from the Champion’s League by a very off-form football team in Sudan. Below are some of the football legends that FUFA should always seek, for advice.
He is undoubtedly among the best goalkeepers ever in Uganda. He believes in himself and we are all aware that he can teach what he did in Express and elsewhere, including in Oman, to other keepers available now.
He is highly disciplined and a natural leader whom FUFA should not ignore even if they wanted.
Sam Kawalya is among the goal-keeping coaches at Express Football Club.
If approached and given time, Kawalya can help the now limping Ugandan Football.
James Magala is not as flamboyant as Kawalya Sam but, trust me, these people saw a lot and suffered a lot while playing football.
They know what it means for a whole national team to travel abroad and sleep hungry and psychologically tortured a lot that the hosts may get the points they need.
James Magala was not only a good goalkeeper but also a leader who commanded respected men in defense and they listened. FUFA needs Magala. He knows the biggest secret to success in modern football.
The world should be informed that a name is not made by everyone in need of it. Hassan Mubiru has proved to us all that the things he did were possible after he calculated. Mubiru is the reason why Eric Kambale, at Express, is what he is today. Magogo’s FUFA needs Hassan Mubiru. You will lose and lose. Continue hungering for feared academic credentials from former players FUFA.
James Odoch went to one of the most populated and famous schools in Uganda including Lubiri SS. He believes that a player lacking confidence can rarely help his team win.
Odoch and Wasswa Bbosa have done wonders at Express FC. I don’t know why MP Moses Magogo ignores them to that extent as if what they are currently doing at Express is wrong.
He was very determined during his active years as a football player. The aggressiveness of the former midfielder is missed among the national football team players.
The Messis and the Ronaldos have trained for years to become what they are. Wasswa Bbosa knows that. All Express players knew that Sudan’s El Merrikh would eliminate them from CCL.
Express will make its fans proud again. Wasswa Bbosa should be always near FUFA’s notable figures advising them.
This former Football player is wiser than FUFA thinks. By employing these people doesn’t mean they should be coaches of national football teams. Legend Kefa Kisala should not be ignored by FUFA.
It is laughable to mention it that one of the living legends in the football sector captain George Ssimwogerere and FUFA president Magogo are foes. The name Ssimwogerere is bigger than a certain Ministry in Uganda. He shouldn’t quarrel with Moses Magogo. He is football himself. We need a happy Ssimwogerere FUFA.
Before COVID outbreak, his school(s) and Football academy were doing well. Jackson Mayanja was a man of a few words but of huge actions on the pitch.
The problem is FUFA never gives these people time after they are spotted. Given time, Mayanja can make any player extraordinary.
Ignore these people again and again at your own risk FUFA. Look for a Mayanja video clip talking. He is sense!
Less than ten lines are enough on this man. He played football like an Angel in heaven. He has coached hundreds of football players already. He is in his fifties, with all the energy to continue serving Football. We need the whole Sam Simbwa FUFA.
You cannot know what he can do for football until you sit with him to talk. Some of these legends are naturally shy. They were once stars. They will not come at FUFA to beg as if they have never seen manna. Look for these former superstars FUFA. It is ‘shitty’ football all over. Obwiny can help somewhere, somehow.
I will be crucified for calling the Next Media’s intelligent man a football legend. Research diligently. You will know why FUFA needs the Bench’s Baker Kigongo. On a serious note, Kigongo is needed by FUFA.
Now when did FUFA conclude that the late Denis Obua and his sons Eric and David were the only Uganda’s football problem about twenty years ago? When? You cannot rest in peace while living if you continue ignoring one of the most important football families in Uganda.
Lule was part of the lethal Under-23 team in late 1990s. He knows a lot about leadership. Andrew Lule is among the men that FUFA should continue to need.
Nyola is rich deep in his heart. He is capable of divulging all the needed secrets to FUFA. Soften your heads you FUFA men. Godfrey Nyola’s knowledge is needed.
He is already there. Thank you FUFA. You should try, and pull up your socks Edgar Watson. You are football.
His late father was a Senegalese and his mother a Congolese. Senegal and DRC are all known footballing Nations.
We need Sissoko (Mugisha) there near front desks at FUFA. He served whole-heartedly, from school even during greatness. It is bad that URA FC dismissed him using the route they ignorantly chose.
Buwembo talked and played football. It is rare among talented people. Some talk and disappoint.
Buwembo was a talkative man who knew what he was talking about, Football. Today’s footballers are timid. They need lectures from Buwembo.
All players in classes should be forced to memorize a few lines about Hakim Magumba. He was really a great football player.
He is less than thirty-six years of age. I have included him on my list because he not only [boldly] confronts security guards employed by FUFA to clobber him but [he is] also a fearless man who knows a lot about football and money. firstname.lastname@example.org
