  1. Good move FAZ. We should not allow hooliganism in football. However every Zambian MUST support Zambian Local leagues. I like pipo from copperbellt, they support bola ya pa zed with a passion.

  2. They are busy supporting colonial masters leagues in Europe because they have little regard for their own selves. Greatness is admiring your achievement not your neighbor’s

  3. Mighty before next season put your house in order. It is not a good thing to be draw kings. Imagine 18 draws. Hope the EXCO, shall put things in place. Mighty is a team with a rich soccer history and should revive its soccer fortunes
