  1. Why is Nathan Sinkala ignored at National team level? That midfield has been in need of some help for a long time, ever since Isaac Chansa was cut out it hasn’t been the same. Mwepu has been a breath of fresh air, but without real help the midfield was looking overwhelmed. Either way, good on Jacob Mulenga for his continued success. Looking forward to when Mayuka regains his form as well.

  2. Wada seems to have issues with Lubambo,Kangwa,Mbola,Kalunga,Chongo,Kalaba,Sinkala,Chirwa. The coach is busy hunting for better players than these; bench warmers and the injured from local clubs!

  3. Looks like Enock Mwepu has sealed his spot in the main team…big up’s to the lad.

    I agree with Positive Thinking if only Nathan could be brought back to seal that defensive midfield position as we now have a solid attacking midfielder in Mwepu we should be fine but hey…..our coach has other ideas….sad part is his ideas are yielding absolutely no trophies and also have put us on the brink of not qualifying to Afcon.

  4. Jacob has found his scoring boots again…maybe he just needed to get married to score….lol…no pun intended.

    Well done Jacob on the longevity of your career.
