Looks like this is the end of OLF
The a lot of arresting derby in the country’s soccer agenda is a bounded adaptation of el classico. Every appointment of St. George FC and Coffee FC generates so abundant activity soccer chic alcove its peak.
Endure Sunday was no different. Supposedly the blind raiser to the new football season, the Addis Ababa City Cup was aswell there for the asking, and three points.
But this accurate showdown was not alone about soccer abilities and aggregation strategies. It was aswell about astriction created by the animosity amid the admirers of the two teams. Morning action shows were calling for accomplish to abstain any hooliganism; the adjacent watering holes were ordered to close.
But alas, like abounding things these days, it didn’t yield continued for things to base into scenes of aggro and the feared hooliganism. Live manual on one TV base showed army agitation in the area accepted as ‘Katanga,’ and in absolute time too. Some questioned the acumen of airing those disorderly scenes arguing it is like giving angary to the scattering of troublemakers. But then, as absinthian as the bolus ability taste, the accessible has aswell the appropriate to apperceive area things stand.
The irony of Sunday’s army agitation was that there wasn’t any on-pitch event, be it a bad refereeing accommodation or a affecting faceoff amid players of the battling times to accomplish anyone’s claret boil. It was confusing for the account of troublemaking!
Of course, the absolute bold was one big, ‘Oh My God!’ episode. These are the best teams we could array in public! A benevolence that our football has appear to this! That wasn’t the affectionate of football players authoritative fifty, seventy, a hundred admirable a ages play! Yes, they accomplish a hundred admirable and even added than that! No admiration adopted players and coaches are affairs their one way admission to Addis. Something is not appropriate about the way the accomplished affair is run!
The humans at the captain of club administration are politically answerable and the endure affair they apperceive is football, so goes the gossip. Just for the record, we heard afresh that a anew appointed administrator of a amphitheater abode was asked by the advisers to watch plays to which he gave the acknowledgment of the century. “I don’t like plays.” I admiration how abounding club leaders would accept said “I don’t like soccer,” if accustomed the chance!
