Moussa Dembele Content At Celtic Says His Agent

Featured Image

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele will remain with the Scottish champions for the foreseeable future, according to his agent Mamadi Fofana.

The 20-year-old is settled in Glasgow following his summer switch from Fulham, despite reported interest from Real Madrid andChelsea.

“Moussa doesn’t stress. He signed a four-year deal at Celtic and in his head he’ll be at the club for those four years,” Fofana said.

“If he has to leave that will happen at the right time, but it’s not in Moussa’s head or mine. In January there was speculation, but there will always be speculation if he does well.

“But Moussa’s not affected. I am not even thinking of the future. I don’t wake up in the morning thinking, where will Moussa go in the summer.

“The future does not exist. The past has gone. It’s about being a better player right now. The plan with Brendan (Rodger) and the club and Moussa is private, but I can say it will remain the same just now.

“I can be no clearer in saying there is no discussion between me and Celtic about Moussa leaving in the summer or even next January.”

Sergio Aguero Intends To Stay At Manchester City

Featured Image

Sergio Aguero has reiterated his desire to stay at Manchester City.

Aguero briefly lost his place to Gabriel Jesus, raising questions over how he fitted into Pep Guardiola’s plans and whether he had a long-term future at the club.

But Aguero, who is under contract until 2020, played down speculation that his recent spell on the bench could lead to him leaving the Etihad Stadium.

“I’ve always said I want to be here at the club, I’ve always said that at the end of the season it won’t be my decision,” said Aguero.

“The truth is that with these things it’s the club that handles everything, and obviously it’s always my intention to stay.”

How Tottenham Almost Signed Argentine Legend Diego Maradona

Featured Image

Tottenham nearly signed Argentina legend Diego Maradona in the 1990s, according to former Spurs striker Teddy Sheringham.

The north London club’s then-manager, Ossie Ardiles, was interested in bringing his compatriot to White Hart Lane before deciding against the move and signing Jurgen Klinsmann instead.

“I got on really well with Ossie, and I think I was the captain at the time, and Ossie came to me one day and said ‘I want your opinion, I’m thinking about signing someone’,” Sheringham told Stadium Astro’s League of Legends.

“And I was like ‘go on’ and he was like ‘Diego Maradona’, and I went ‘Ossie, Ossie, really!? Are you? Do it, just do it’.

“He said ‘I’m in talks with him at the moment’ and I was like ‘my God, do it, it would be brilliant to play with him’.

“He came to me about three days later and was like ‘I’ve decided not to sign Diego, he’s got too much baggage around him’.

Lucas Perez Feeling “Comfortable” At Arsenal

Featured Image

Lucas Perez feels “really comfortable” at Arsenal as the Spanish forward looks to propel the Gunners into a strong finish to the season.

Lucas Perez took his tally in English football to seven with the opening goal in Monday’s 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round win at Sutton.

The start at Gander Green Lane, however, was just his ninth in all competitions.

Perez’s representative has played down suggestions the forward – signed for £17m from Deportivo La Coruna in August – may consider his long-term future in the summer.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accepts Perez is now very much “pushing on the door” for a regular starting place, with the 28-year-old having settled into London life.

“It was still quite a change for me to get used to the English league when I moved here from Spain,” he told Arsenal Player. “Everyone needs some time to adjust.

“Players are all different, so some take longer to adapt than others.

“Now I feel really comfortable and I’ve fitted in well to the team – that’s particularly important for a player.”

Haye Will Not Change His Training Regime For AJ

Featured Image

Tony Bellew has criticised David Haye for the way he trains, but the former heavyweight champion does not intend to change how he trains.

Haye recently returned from his training camp in Miami, but is still expected to attend the Brit awards, with his fight against Bellew coming in less than two weeks.

His social life has been criticised by Bellew in recent times, and he says he won’t be changing his training regime when he prepares to fight Joshua.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “I have heard him say I would go to the opening of an envelope. I think he’s just jealous because he doesn’t get invites to anything, because he’s just a real dull character. A moaning, negative, dark clouds around him guy.

“If I was fighting Anthony Joshua, I would be doing exactly the same training, because I believe this works for me. The training of old doesn’t work for me any more. My body breaks down.

“This type of training where you incorporate fun, happiness, sun rises, sunbathing – this works for me and you’ll see come fight night, the difference between a happy athlete and an angry athlete.”

Haye marked his comeback with two routine stoppage victories last year and believes he is physically and mentally stronger after a break from the sport.

“People look at that gap as a negative, I look at it as a positive,” said Haye. “I’ve had time to reflect on my training, reflect on how I live my life. What makes me happy, what makes me sad. What training sessions went well and why they went well.

“I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on my career and that’s culminated in me being standing right here, knowing exactly what needs to be done in training camp to get the best out of myself.

“Although I haven’t fought in competitive fights for five years, I’m fresh, I haven’t taken any big punches, my body is in good condition and I’m ready to go. I feel like I’ve got a whole career ahead of me.”

Pochettino: Give Spurs Time To Win Titles

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs need time to win titles, as they’re still working on developing their squad and mentality.

Tottenham are third in the EPL, in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and still in the last-32 of the Europa League.

Pochettino wants to be the man to take Tottenham to the next level, but believes it will be the hardest thing to do in football.

“We need time, and we cannot buy time. It’s the most important thing for us,” he said ahead of the Wembley clash.

“We want to win titles. We want to move the club to the next level. Like when you are building the facility we are in now and the new stadium, you need time to build a stadium and time to build a squad.

“One thing is very clear, and it is realistic, is that we are building the new stadium and that process is a tough period for every club. Then, when you have the tools to try to fight with the big sides to try to win, we will arrive in the moment.

“Today we are in the same process as the club. We started maybe one or two years ago to try to build a new team, mentality and philosophy. I hope that I can see that process and that patience, and in the end the success.

“That is my big aim and challenge at Tottenham. We improved a lot, and I am happy with the progress in the last two years. But it is the hardest thing to win titles. You can win games, but to win the Premier League is another step, and is the hardest job.”

Hazard Praises Chelsea’s Home Form

Featured Image

Eden Hazard has hailed Chelsea’s impressive home form, believing some teams lose even before kickoff.

Chelsea are currently eight points clear at the top of the top table and have won 11 of their 12 home games.

Chelsea could only win five of their home games last season and Hazard has welcomed the fear factor the Stamford Bridge enjoyed when they last won the title.

“Yes, [the home record] is significant,” he told the London Evening Standard. “It’s difficult for the opponent to come here and win games.

“Do I get that feeling that some teams are beaten before kick-off? Yes. We are playing better than last season. It’s a little like two years ago when we won the league.

“I remember the second part of the season back then – sometimes the team didn’t play well, but we always scored at least one goal and Thibaut Courtois would make at least one good save, like against Arsenal.”

Hazard also praised the influence of the Chelsea supporters in their home turnaround.

“We are in full confidence here on this pitch,” he continued. “You know the fans bring everything, they support us.

“I remember against Tottenham earlier in the season when they scored, but the supporters kept going, they kept singing. It’s great and we feel very good on this pitch.

“We know everything can happen in football, but we have self-belief and that is very important in football.”

And the Belgium international expects that a continuation of Chelsea’s fine form at Stamford Bridge will be key to wrapping up the league title.

“We are also good away from home, that’s why we are first in the table,” Hazard added. “But obviously it’s a completely different challenge when you play at home compared to away.

“We just need to keep the same concentration. It’s more difficult to play away because of the fans, but we are ready, we are professional. We can deal with the pressure. Everything is going good.

“We know if we want to be champions, in our home stadium we have to win most of our games. We can’t say all 19 because we have already lost to Liverpool, but we have to win 16 to 17 because it’s our place. We are ready to deliver.”

Ranieri: I Want Leicester To Play Like Fighters

Featured Image

Claudio Ranieri has charged his Leicester City players to play like fighters when they travel to Sevilla, as they look to forget their disastrous season.

Leicester are hanging by a thread above relegation after 25 games in the league and this comes on the back of their surprise EPL title win.

They’ve however been good in the UCL, coming out top of the group that had Porto, FC Copenhagen and Club Brugge. The Foxes will play Sevilla in the round of 16 and have the first leg of that encounter today.

“Will we have the balls?” Ranieri asked the Daily Mail. “I want the matadors. I want the gladiators, I want the soldiers, I want my players.

“It could be the turning point, it could be everything. We can lose, it’s OK, nothing happens. But if we win, if we do a very good game, something inside could change. We need one match like this.

“We play without the pressure of the Premier League, we play light. For this reason I hope we can show our football. They are better than us, but we will fight.”

Joshua Asks Wilder To Fight Better Opponents

Featured Image

Anthony Joshua has asked Deontay Wilder to take on better opponents in the heavyweight class.

Wilder will defend his title for the fifth time on Sunday against Gerald Washington, after his previous opponent, Andrzej Wawrzyk failed a drug test to force the change of opponents.

However, Joshua has questioned the progress of the unbeaten American and believes he needs to prove he is a champion.

“I think Wilder needs to fight better opposition,” Joshua exclusively told Sky Sports. “Washington is good, but he’s up and coming still. It was a last minute call-up as well.

“I know his last opponent failed a drugs test unfortunately, but I would love for him to postpone it for another month and get someone who could train for a world championship fight.”

“Wilder has been a professional for around eight to nine years and I want to see a bit more, and there is nothing wrong with that,” said Joshua.

“I’m speaking from a fan’s perspective, because I get it. After three years as a professional, they want more, so after nine years as a fan I’m saying: ‘Wilder we want more from you’, and there is nothing wrong with that.

“Good luck against Washington, but I think the other contenders in the heavyweight division need challenging as well, so I think it would be good for Wilder to force these type of fights, rather than taking easy pickings.”

Album Review: The Certificate – Duncan Mighty

Featured Image

Duncan Mighty has earned the right to be called Port Harcourt’s first son. Indeed no other citizen- government official or private person,- has worked harder than him at bringing the essence of the garden city to mainstream consciousness.

Thanks to hit songs like Port Harcourt Boy and benefactors like former Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, international jeweller Chris Aire and presently Nyesom Wike, he has been successful at it. He mixes dispatches from his favourite city with a healthy dose of praise singing of wealthy patrons. With such a formula intact, Wene Mighty is hardly likely to go out of season.

On The Certificate, his fifth studio album, Duncan Mighty does a blend of both, and more. He flips the script and gives the Port Harcourt Girl her own platform to shine but shows no interest in his sisters beyond wanting to wife them for their booty whining skills.

Thus the end result holds no candle to his classic Port Harcourt Boy. On Killing Me Softly, Duncan Mighty is in love, but also environmentally conscious as he dishes to a lady love, If I break your heart it’s like oil spillage, keeping the travails of his home state on the front burner even when recording silly love songs.

One of the pleasures of listening to Duncan Mighty is his voice; his plaintive wail, capable of penetrating the hardest of hearts sits side by side with that of Timaya, his fellow south-south brother.

Speaking of, the two go at it on the missed opportunity for greatness that is Owu. Fast paced and concerned with showing off their new found wealth instead of their vocal kills, Owu, lifeless and uninspired as it is, is no fit for their respective talents.

It is important to Duncan Mighty to belong in the right company. His origins may be humble but he’s since left them behind and embraced the praise singing art form that has helped him rub shoulders with the high and mighty.

After opening with piano strings and a soulful cry of welcome, the disc goes straight to business, preaching prosperity on Mama Born Dem and comparing his case to moneybags like Lionel Messi and Nyesom Wike. His angle appears to be that if these guys, born of females, can make it big in life, why not him? Duncan Mighty also reserves a full song for the Jagaban of Bourdillon himself in which he declares his wishes to get paper like Tinubu. This should keep Duncan Mighty in the Lagos circles for a while.

The themes are generously spiritual as Duncan Mighty wears his faith proudly, thanking God on moody tracks such as All Belongs To You and the highlife-y buzz of Give Him Praise.

Duncan Mighty has no patience for the haters and blesses them with some form of madness on the overly simplistic Hataz. He refuses to let them dictate terms of his life and pushes back on Na Lie.

The Certificate is made from a formula, and it is the same one that has guided Duncan Mighty to success on previous records; from Koliwater to Legacy.

The songs are catchy, beats are danceable, lyrics are plain and arrangements are simple and melodies are mostly pleasant. Onyinye is cut from the same cloth as previous Duncan Mighty hits such as Obianuju and Ahamefuna in that it is as danceable and inescapable as its predecessors.

Duds like DJs Anthem and Kpalele 4 Me crowd out the disc’s last third but Mr Mighty has already made enough of an impression at this point. No matter, the fans will love this one wholeheartedly. Everyone else? It’s probably going to be hit and miss. More hits though.

Is Big Brother Naija Raising Africa’s Stupid Index?

Is Big Brother Naija Raising Africa’s Stupid Index? – Philip Asuquo

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

I have heard and seen so many arguments about this reality TV show called Big Brother Naija. On one side, many condemn it with varying reasons while on the other, some say there is nothing wrong with it and even go on to call those who condemn it ‘hypocrites’. Thus, I will lend my thoughts to it.

This article was written by Philip Asuquo. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

America’s STUPID INDEX is known to have risen quite disturbingly with the influx of reality TV shows back in the early 2000s.

To salvage this, American content creators and government met and decided to use the media to educate Americans and make them become smarter and thus reduce the stupid index.

The outcome of this has been the making of science fiction TV series and inclusion of intelligent conversations in popular TV shows and movies. In no time, these made America’s growing generation become smarter than the previous and yes, we have seen them leading in many tech-related sectors.

Many people have asked me to talk about the BIG BROTHER NIGERIA show currently showing on cable TV. This is my take on it.

In the face of a global drive towards a tech-driven future, Africans are glued to the screen giving their eyes to what many have argued over its adding little or nothing to their brain worth. The argument of the pro-BBNaija divide is that it is ‘just entertainment’ and that people who criticise it do worse than what the housemates do.

However, gone are the days when TV was just for entertainment purposes only. Countries like America are actually using TV/Films to position the minds of their youths to become smarter and more in tune with the realities of the incoming age.

Next year, the world’s first flying cars will be launched and orders are already being made from this month. They costs between $400,000 and $600,000. Of course, those cars will be ordered from all over the world. Not only will it increase the GDP of the country of its makers but it will also move the world way forward into the awaiting reality of the global future. Do we remember how many Science fiction movies and TV series that showed this reality over and over again before now?

The developed world does not leave media to charlatans or see it as just for entertainment purposes only. The media can be used to show a reality which eventually becomes what is rife in the society. It is used to show viewers what realities to aspire for and can either be used to position the minds of a people right and raise a generation of smart youths who reach out and do exploits OR it can be used to increase the STUPID INDEX of a people.

I’ll say one thing without mincing words, #BBNaija is yet another one of those shows that will and is already increasing the STUPID INDEX of Africans.

Is there nothing wrong with having a show on TV that shows footages of married and single people going bare-breasted and having foul indulgences in the full glare of a viewing public (even their families are watching including maybe their kids) and then rewarding N25million to the winning housemate for being in a house like that? What exactly are the winners being rewarded for? What are we encouraging the youths watching it to do eventually in society? Have we thought of the children that will grow up seeing footages of their mums/dads on youtube with sleazy acts and how this will affect their reality or are we thinking of only ourselves and our voyeuristic hunger?

TV shows like ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’ actually rewards people for answering smart questions and thus not only makes the viewers learn what they may not know but shows that you can be rewarded for being smart. We complain of the government and every other thing but what do we accept that will become an Achilles heel for our sound existence tomorrow?

Just as Americans deliberately used film/TV to raise a generation of smart citizens, we should realise that what we expose our youths to eventually becomes what they make society become.

Dear Africans, it is up to you. You need to know more to be able to do more. Whatever content you expose yourself to on a regular either makes you know more or makes you know less than you should. It’s either your INTELLIGENCE is being fed or your IGNORANCE is being entertained with grav-er ignorance.

Dear BBNaija lovers, no we are not all perfect and some of us may be doing worse ‘stuff’ than what the housemates are doing on TV like you are quick to say but trust me, the effect of constantly exposing a generation to the depravity of society does not only embolden the depraved but also raises a generation of depraved minds eventually.

Is anyone looking at the STUPID INDEX of Nigerians like the Americans looked at theirs keenly and introduced the kind of content that is raising smart Americans and preparing them for the coming tech age?

Why is America and the developed world focused on Technology and giving us more ‘science techy’ scripts for TV, films, events and even in music videos? It is because technology is the engine room of prosperity.They are exposing their own to this.

Let’s expose Africa to the right content and watch Africans rise from ignorance and the rather slipshod reality of it’s today. It will require deliberate content that ‘smartens’ put through to us through the media (TV, Film, Radio, Online, Print) and the reduction of the kind of content that depraves Africans and keep our minds in the gutters.

Why have I used America as the yardstick over and over again?

The Big Brother show is not Nigerian. It is a foreign TV franchise. If we must mimic or run franchises from international platforms, let’s ensure we take that which is moving them and the world forward. Let’s deliberately reduce our STUPID INDEX with content that will help do so.

I am concerned about Africa’s relevance in the global future. You should be too.

UCL Last-16 Update: Atletico In Control Against Leverkusen And City Stage Comeback Against Monaco

Featured Image

Atletico Madrid are in a good position to qualify for yet another UCL quarterfinal after winning 4-2 away against Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen were looking to revenge crashing out at the hands of the La Liga outfit in 2014-15.

However, Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann put Atletico ahead by two goals going into the break.

Bellarrabi pulled one back early in the second half, before Gameiro converted a penalty for the away side.

A Stefan Savic own goal followed soon after, giving Leverkusen a chance to stage a late onslaught.

Atletico gained control again late in the game, with a Fernando Torres header put the game beyond doubt.

Comeback Victory For City In Eight-Goal Thriller Against Monaco

It was an exciting and electric match between Monaco and City at the Etihad stadium, that ended 5-3 in favor of the home side.

Sterling opened the scoring for City, before Falcao headed in the equaliser and Mbappe put Monaco in charge before the break.

The second half saw Falcao handed the chance to extend the scoreline to 3-1 from the spot, only for his tame penalty to be saved by Caballero.

Falcao was left to rued that missed opportunity, as Aguero equalised for City. Three minutes later, Monaco were in front again 3-2 after a brilliant chip from Falcao.

However, before the final whistle Manchester City scored three goals in 11 minutes to complete the comeback, thanks to goals from Aguero, Stones and Sane.

Rodriguez: Zidane’s Squad Rotation Won’t Affect Real Madrid

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane ringed the squad for the 2-0 win over Espanyol and looks to rotate the squad some more when they face Valencia, and Rodriguez does not feel the team will suffer.

Madrid have two games in hand over Barcelona and will be playing one of those against Valencia on Wednesday.

Rodriguez is hoping to start in any of the matches, and is certain the squad won’t suffer if some of the stars are allowed to rest.

“Regardless of how many changes are made, we are all on good form and that is down to the fact that we have got such excellent players,” the Colombia international told the club’s website.

“We are doing well, everyone is on good form and you can see that in the performances.

“We now face the rearranged fixture and we have got to go into it with real discipline and show great desire.

“It will be a significant game for us if we manage to take the three points. We know that we will have to start with real intensity and focus, so as not to be caught out.”

Leaders Madrid are one point clear of Barca and three in front of Sevilla.

NOA Pleads With Nigerians To Stop Calling Nigeria ‘Naija’

Featured Image

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has pleaded with Nigerians to stop referring to Nigeria as ‘Naija’, in order to keep its originality.

The appeal was made by the Director-General of the Mr. Garba Abari, while speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

Mr. Abari stressed that the new trend of making funky the original name of Nigeria was worrisome and not in the best interest of the country.

His words: “We try in all our advocacy visits to insist that Nigeria must be referred to as Nigeria and not Naija.

“So, our schools have a role to play in this; the media itself has also got a very fundamental role to play because it is the media that helps in the propagation of this kind of misnomer.

“All of us, as individuals, as corporate organisations, as media, whether broadcast, print or online, must wake up to the reality.

“That the more we use these misnomers referring to our country, the fallout of it is that, a significant percentage of our younger ones will not even remember that Nigeria is the original name of our country.

“I want to appeal to all Nigerians, young and old to always refer to our country as Nigeria,” he said.

Mr. Abari also urged parents to key into the efforts to preserve the country’s original name by discouraging their children and wards from referring to Nigeria as “Naija”.

CAC Deregisters 38,000 Companies For Failing To File Returns

Featured Image

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on Tuesday announced that it had de-listed the names of over 38,000 companies from its register for failing to file annual returns to the commission.

The Registrar-General, CAC, Mr Bello Mahmud, made this known while speaking during a chat with pressmen in Abuja.

Mahmud, who stated that the delisting of the companies have been gazetted by the commission, added that only the court can give an order for the companies to be readmitted into the register of the commission.

He said, “The laws says that if the commission has reasonable cause that the company is not carrying on business while in operation, then it has to enquire from that company and if no response is received within three months, the commission can proceed to strike off the name of the registered company.

“We have just gazetted a little above 38,000 companies and those companies have been struck off from the register.

“But by striking off, it doesnt mean the companies have been dissolved. The companies have been more or less suspended and they cannot go back to business unless they obtain an order of court to re-list. The law gives them a window of 20 years within which they can apply for re-list.”

Jardim: Falcao’s Penalty Miss Was Key

Featured Image

Leonardo Jardim believes Radamel Falcao losing his penalty shot was a defining moment in the 5-3 loss to Manchester City.

Monaco were leading by 2-1 when they were awarded a penalty early in the second half, only for Caballero to save Falcao’s weak effort.

Aguero equalised after eight minutes, before Falcao scored his second. However, City won 5-3 and Jardim believes if Falcao had scored it would have been a different story.

“We made a couple of errors in defence that we were punished for and I think the real key to this game was when we could have gone 3-1 up,” the Portuguese lamented. “I think Monaco played a great game. I have congratulated my players.

“This game was perhaps one of the most exciting games of the Champions League this season, exciting for the supporters,” he continued. “It was a great game for the supporter.

“I imagine everyone was happy to witness such a spectacle.

“We work hard to put on a show because we are passionate about football and we want to please the fans. Scoring three goals here at Manchester City is a really good show, a fantastic game.

“We’ve got 90 minutes to go, playing at home, so it’s far from over.”
