    • Yes Positive thinking, I do agree with you. The man deserve a chance for sure. let us all support him. HR was given two solid years until we were able to see the results.

      • Stephen, you and I are usually on the same page. Building a good team takes time and you are right. It took 2 years before HR produced, and it also took him going to Angola and Algeria before he mastered the game.

  1. Felistus Mbewe and Nsabata are horrible players,Janza has started behaving like Renard and why did he leave out Moses Phiri,Allan Mukuka and Dominic yobe

  2. Good luck coach and the team, do I think you are right for job? no, but I will support you as a patriotic that I am, I can only hope for the best for you and Chipolopolo.

  3. Why is Janza still coaching zambia. We Zambians tolerate mediocrity Janza should be fired. His poor team selection cost us a quarter final place.

  4. anyway i think the rivalry between Ghana and Zambia should end. The rivalry between fans of this 2 nations has gone from being fierce to boring,childish and petty.

  5. Lol, you got a cute sister to find out for you? I only swing with a right hand if you know what that means, you sis will do and then she can deliver the results..lol

    • Take advantage of the FREE UNCIRCUMSION CAMPAIGN to cut that FORESKIN off otherwise u ll continue to be frustrated as no girl ll take I serious haha!!!

      INFAMOUS M.A.D.E ll gradually guard u to become human again and not that BABOONISH ZAMBIAN MONKEY with EBOLASOMIASIS haha

      • @al idi amin,please please please, enough of those ,cos it smacks of immaturity and absurdity to say the least,very shameful
        @tc,i tot u had imbibed the advice of positive thinking on the need to b decorum on this forum not to respond to any unsavory comments to u,thus he who drops faeces shdnt blame any fellow if it attracts flies,
        Ghana at the end of the day got one the outcomes of a football match ,though painful but the BS have moved on hoping for a better tomorrow,we might also get there……..worthless to argue with innuendos and insults,ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. @tc soccerman, yes no question the rivalry between Ghana nd Zambia is here to stay but this petty and childish things are creating unneccessary hatred between the two nations. No doubt yesterday loss was painfull but we didnt need Zambians to remind us of when was the last time we won this tornament especially now that we stil licking our wounds.

    • @Alex zz, It’s part of the game,but I feel your pain. The way I look at it is, if you can’t take the abuse on here then simply don’t blog or get things started. As for the hatred I speak for myself, I will never hate any Ghanaians or Nigerian(as my best friends are all from those countries), as a matter of fact my best friend is from Ghana, from my freshman year in college until Grad school and our first jobs, we were roommates until we got married. As a matter of fact I was his best man at his wedding and he was my best man on my destination wedding,( we always looked out for one another) so truth is there is no hatred at least from me. Just don’t take everything you read seriously from blog sites, atleast I don’t saves me headaches.

  7. I still stand by my original sentiments on Janza. If you are going to judge him fairly, give him the same level of support and respect you gave HR, Bonetti, and all the other foreign coaches. Don’t have him playing friendlies against Zesco or make plans for the team to travel 12 hours before a match. Then if the results don’t come you can then call him useless.

  8. why do ghanian still visiting the site? ar u not saticified for loonsing to renar twice? just shut yo mouths u just fool yoself in this site.

  9. naaa,we are just satisfied of being the most consistent team in africa even with this young squad..maybe you should be satisfied with first round elimination twice in afcon consequetively

  10. PATHETIC coach summoning a bunch of small and average boys. FAZ should advertise the job of the national team coach. We need a great thinker of football. An experienced coach with pedigree and a proven track record!

    • Janza is more sensible than u as u are of the same age and whiles he is making life big, u are always spewing total garbage from your old, wretched incoherent brains!!

      Shut the hell up, U WRETCHED OLD ROGUE ROOKIE LOL

  11. @kafusha, I agree with u. This camping is useless meant to chew allowances by officials at the expense of tax payers money. U call all these boys into camp but when it comes to a serious game or tournament only 1 or 2 players will be in the team. Why spend this money irresponsibly u fools at FAZ!

  12. The idea left by HR is good Janza, and it’s good that you still support it, but I feel I have a different opinion
    . How about starting this good program in mid April when players are fully settled with their clubs? Those who were in Afcon Squad needs a rest and report to their clubs. Players from Zesco and Power must constrate with their clubs. It’s window period and some players are making movements.
    I fully support the program but I feel it’s too early for this. Why can’t we start this program by going around the provincial HQs and tap talents from the hiden ones?

  13. The choice for young U20 players by Janza should only make Zambian soccer fans happy.Youth with speed&strength obviously dominated the Gh-CIV finale.It only shows Janza is learning……certainly learning from the best.

  14. No rivaly btwin Zambia and ghana. Head to head Zambia is far much better than ghana, we beat them right, left & centre. It like always using a stick to whip your child badly, so that child may lose respect for u and could even challenge to face him in boxing ring.
    Ghana has lost respect for us coz we always beat them.

  15. FYABUPUFYE KU FAZ.I VE LOST INTEREST IN ZAMBIA NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM.AS LONG AS KALU AND JANZA ARE IN CHARGE, I WILL SUPPORT ANY TEAM PLAYING AGAINST ZAMBIA.MA RUBBISHI YEKAYEKA.

  16. mumbi..you are a real definition of poor education.did you study communication skills? (thats only if you have ever been to school)..people like you are the reason why the whites see africa as a representation of iliteracy and slaves..i want to tell you zambians that if you want to enjoy your analysis without being interupted by any insult,then warn those men of no souls to learn how to write sentences without writing ghana.

  17. Janza is nothing but a FAILURE and will NEVER help our football.Thia is the right time to get a new coach so that he prepares the team adequately and not hiring a coach one week before the qualifiers.

  18. Sources from bbc indicates that Issa Hayatou is changing the rules for presidency, since he is 68 and would be require to be out when he turns 70 according to the rules, but as one would figure, Issa wants to change the rules to allo him to be self appoint for yet another corrupt term until he turns 75. Wow , only in Africa, I see where our great Kalu gets from..no one will be allowed to contest the annointed one, His majesty Dr.Kalu.

  19. We understand what it means to lose a game like that, especially in the final. It is so painful that people resort to unpalatables

  20. IDI AMIN AKA SELFMADE. IT HAS COME AT A TIME WEN AM CHANGING MY REPUTATION ON THIS SITE, SO THAT OTHER BLOGGERS CAN CHANGE THE WAY THEY VIEW ME, I WISH I HAD JUMPED ON YOU SO THAT WE FINISH OFF WAT WE DIDNT FINISH, BUT LIKE I SAID AM TRYING TO CHANGE MY REPUTATION.
