  1. I wonder what’s happening to Lewis Macha, he started off on a good note when he joined and now seems to be struggling to get any game time at Baroka.

  2. Mixed results indeed. I like the consistency of Mbola. He deserves a national team call up. Somebody tell me, I thought it was reported that Lineker had signed for a Portuguese team? Am I wrong?

  3. Indeed Emmanuel Mbola, it is always the same story, ” he put in a full 90minutes shift” He deserves a place in Chipolopolo “A” team.
