Dear Chief Editor
Could you believe it????
I wrote this commentary article and sent it by e-mail to the Ghanaian Football Daily Newspapers, but unfortunately, I could not follow-up to see if it has been published there or not. I wrote the article 48 hours just before the starting of the last African Football Tournament, and no way at all that any body can be able to see unforeseen sequence of events taking place the same way I had predicted
Ironically, there are many people who are entirely engaged in the football activity in Sudan, including players, referees, teams' administrators, coaches, football federation organizations and staff, fans' informal sports- male-and-female setups, journalists , commentators, correspondents ......, and thousands of many other fake and artificial associates. But I pet that no one of all these persons has ever got the far vision, perspective and outlook as mine. Irrespective to the stupid dreams derived from the misrepresentation of the idiot understanding that Sudan had achieved fast progress in football during the latest years, with the erroneous evidence of the results of the two big teams in the two major competitions of the African League and Confederation, I used my own potential capacity, perception and forecast to deny strongly all those misrepresentative conclusions. I gave the true diagnosis of our diseases and possessed the telescopic sight to eventually signal our tragic expectations. Finally, I was able to prove that we are still far behind, and all our fancy illusions of the football progress are no more than nightmare dreams. Both teams, Hilal and Mareikh, had only reached the finals by the special skills and personal performances of the foreign players. The national players are, and will remain, completely useless.
HENCE, WITH THE FAR-SIGHTED OUTLOOK HIGHLIGHTED BY THIS COMMENTARY, AND WITHOUT HAUGHTY PERSONAL PRIDE, I FEEL REALLY ENTITLED TO BE QUALIFIED FOR THE TITLE OF “THE
’S SPORTSMAN OF THE CENTURY”
AND SHOULD, THEREFORE, RESERVE MY LEGAL RIGHT TO BE AWARDED “THE TOP GOLD MEDAL OF THE COUNTRY
IS ONLY SUDANESE WHO CAN COMPETE AND CHALLENGE ME IN THE ACQUISITION OF THIS TITLE?????
Do not you agree with me??????????????
Dear Chief Editor
Just before 48 hours of our Sudan National Football Team meets first with the Zambian, followed subsequently by
and Cameron, in the three consecutive games of the struggle to qualify for the finals of the African Football Championship, I send you this comic article exploring my gloomy expectations of any positive prospects open for our
Unfortunately, the fast deteriorating position of our team in the records of the African football, as well as our shameful defeat results although the past three decades, do not give any hope for us to achieve miracle results this time. In fact, we are extremely worried to suffer heavy defeats, taking into consideration the bad luck coincidence which has put us in the strongest group. Even if we turn to be exceptionally lucky to qualify and proceed further, we certainly lack the talent, the spirit and the will to surprise our next rivals. At this beyond-the- dreams- stage, we will definitely sustain tremendous damage to our national pride. Let us hope that we will be disqualified from the beginning with little sorrow of misfortune, justifications of referee’s injustice or at least claiming deal conspiracy being plotted by the two big
and Cameron to kick-out the two Zambian and Sudanese competitors. Anyway, we are utterly disappointed of our past years experience, and cannot tolerate anymore the injury of our national name by scandals of heavy defeats. We had enough national crises and should do our best to escape any more catastrophes to come.
May we all pray to ALLAH SOBHANHO TA’ALA to save our name and reputation from the shame of the terrible defeats???????
