Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni linked to Neil Warnock’s dismissal

Posted: 10 January 2012 Time: 13:52

Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni is believed to have been at the centre of Neil Warnock’s dismissal from Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.  

Warnock is understood to have disagreed with owner Tony Fernandes over several targets.   One of the players earmarked by Warnock is believed to have been the Rovers striker, but Fernandes would not countenance a pursuit.   It seems the pair had met at the end of last week to discuss transfer business, but Warnock left the meeting feeling that his position had become untenable.   So far Rangers have signed only Manchester United striker Federico Macheda on loan and it appears Fernandez prefers this type of arrangement rather than straightforward purchases.

Why are the Northern Governors, Senators, Emirs and Islamic leaders ain't condemning the senseless killings by their kinsmen?. Why is that none of them are condemning this inhuman and senseless killing if they are not in support of it?. What are they telling the rest of the country, that they can get away with anything? We shall soon find out. I say they all in support of what that is going on, the killings perpetuating by this almajiris and their jobless and clueless youth created by their leaders over the years.

Ijeoma you must be a fool, a stupid fool for that matter.This a man defending our right to exit and you are here talking rubbish.Corruption cuts across all ethnic groups in Nigeria, including the poverish North.How better is the north to the east, i went to visit the sultan of sokoto some time ago and that was my first visit to sokoto, i was supprised to found out that all standard and duplex buildings put together in sokoto is less than one third of the building and development i have in my local government of Nkwerre!!!.We igbos have this propensity of developing other peoples place with our aggrassive business intuition, it is madness to do that now in the north because of thier backwardness and lack of tulorence to visitors.It is now high time that our state governors should stop Igbos from going out of the east or at worst southern part of the country to do business and invest, is never worth it.The north is shit to leave in and is not worth it, imagine the hausa's leaving the south in droves with nothing but their Ghana must gooo..this people are animals and not worth to be called Nigerians!!

With regards to another civil war, the muslim north should note that it wont be the same as the civil war, meanwhile the Hausa's in this regards are cowards and was not part of the ethnic group that faught the Biafrans.The northerners that constributed the major malitary personnel that faught the biafrans are from the Plateaus and Benue (Tiv),almost 90% of Nigerian Army then are from thier, they where used as bufers for biafran Ogbunigwe.Now this people will not support the Hausa /Fulani cos they are wiser.Any war now will be catastrophic to the core North.We Igbos are more experience in this regards and highly militant in nature, i can assure any group that we can manufacture a nuclear war head in less three months!! and can raised an army of 100,000 in less than two months, ask any body about our inventions during the war!!!, it is still there.Let the north be warned!!!!
