  1. Ba kabola balisende kabola pa Athur davies.power cant reproduce the play of 2011 under the tulelage of maestro Fordson kabole.The thing that has killed soccer at arthur davies is poor administration.

  2. it’s sad that the performance of the local plays is so poor that non of this can even be selected or fit for national team.This are the plays Renard will be selecting for CAN tournament and maybe in future to replace the edging Katongo,Musonda etc.For Zambia to maintain its status on African football ,we need this plays more especially this clubs playing CAF and Club Champs to do much better and reach finals for them to build confidence to play big games like Africa cup . If anything it’s there business to be identified by big clubs .clubs should also spend time to tap talent in remote areas . For Faz this is the time because if this current team goes that will be end.

  3. Tenant did well at Hwange FC – was once coach of the season in fact that same year made little known coal mine town of hwange believe they can do it.
