Well, we won't be the first as there are some weekend engagement trends already on Hive! But this would be THE NIGERIAN VERSION!

Interesting... Been a while since I've been in this space. Please tag me in future posts.
I'm not much of a football fan, not since Man u decided to ruin the fun for their fans. It's been really frustrating, makes me wonder how Arsenal fans have been coping all these years. Even my Pastor dey take style diss me for message anytime I lose a match 😹.
Things are looking hopeful this season, but of course, haters are still claiming "it's just preseason". We'll see about that.
That aside, nothing gives me greater joy than seeing Chelsea lose 😈. A bad season for Chelsea can make me do giveaway. I think Chelsea fans are the worst in history and I'm sure many people feel the same. Chelsea must have the highest number of clueless fans with the biggest mouths, a very honest observation 😹
I'm allowing a little space in my heart to hope for a good season for Man U. And a sky with a beautiful splash of colors this season, the sky isn't always blue yunno. Maybe then I might be confident to get me a new Jersey and resume my fanship (I put my fanship on a suspension for the last 2 seasons 😹).
I'm not very conversant with other leagues and I'm not the biggest fan I know but I might just look into that this season, courtesy of Asuu.
This person does not like Chelsea hahahahahahaha
I hate it too whenever they win ,they disturb world peace
Lemme guess you are a man u fan.
You think this season is going to be better for you guys?
Because of the new coach?
Okay I can't wait anymore let them start and let's see how it goes
You people should leave my Chelsea alone oo, shouldn't we be happy when we win? Do you think it's easy, if it's easy oya go and win na 😂😁😎.
You people disturb world peace whenever you guys win I don't like you winning..lol

Did I hear you well? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Why do you hate Chelsea this much to the extent of doing a giveaway when they lose the match? Well, I used to be a Chelsea fan but later switched to Man city after their consistent failure 🤩🤩🤩, but then...I still love to see them win when they are playing with other clubs but not many. In fact, they can't even win man city in a game 🤩🤩
Hmm... Chelsea runaway fan 😂😂, we will win man city, soon, lol.
Thank you for not supporting Chelsea..lol.
Join the winning team man city
Correct guy johnson 🤣
Thanks for switching jare 😂. They just really get on my nerves
Ahahaha. @sekani I love when Chelsea lose too. What I observe is that there will be dead silence when Chelsea loses a match. I think the fan base is too noisy.

Ah, why will you say you want Chelsea to loose now, no oo, they will not oo. Now that you said you want them to loose, I feel like doing prayers on their behalf, lol.
If Man-u is so good, they should try this season and see how it goes, we the Chelsea fans by color are not going down without a fight 😂😂..
Please don't mind me, I was just passing through oo.

I appreciate the mention my bro 🙏
Fellow Nigerians (in military voice)
Football is life. And the enthusiasm that comes with it adds to life and longevity.
As the next season of football begins across Europe and of course, Nigeria, one would like to see his choice team do well.
I support Manchester United, win or lose I remain here.
Before I became a Man. Utd fan, I had vouched to remain a local fan by supporting Eyimba FC of Aba but things turned out that I had to look ahead. I still follow the Nigerian league because I think there is a slight improvement in the league.
This new lad, Frankie De Jong is one way to the top for Man Utd. I feel all the old legs should be allowed to go so that we can breathe fresh air. Like Chelsea did last season and went far in registering their presence everywhere
Football and Racism
The speech of the Napoli boss has set football on fire once again. He seemed to have forgotten that African players are one of the most sorted after signings to change the phase of football in leagues across Europe.
No need to panic, he has received as.much as possible responses from top African players.
I can't wait to see African players shine this season.
Where are you @george-dee and @olujay? Share your view on the upcoming football season.
All these man u people..lol
Not bad for real I feel you guys need it else omo I see no win for man u o...lol
Ahaha. We go shock una. Just look ahead. I know that there will be surprises like for Chelsea and Arsenal going down the drain. And probably, Man Utd not making too 4.
However, Man Utd blood flows in my veins.
Let's see what you guys have for us this season...lol
I love this
I don't want to hear noise this season oooo.
No way, if we loose self, you go hear lots of noise from me specially, hehehe.
Ahaha. I don know you now. Shépé, dry-gin, ogoro club.
Yes oo, they might really surprise us oo, the only problem is we don't know the type of surprise yes but let's hope for better days 😁😊.
I envy your loyalty sha ooo, keep it up sir. This is the kind of fan every club wants 😊.
Maybe you should join me.
No oo, I like it here, hehehe 🙈🙈😂😂💙💙💙.
Let me take you to the promised land nah
Hehehe, no, where I am that's where the promise land is 🥰🥰.
That place you are, the bridge is cracked, collapse is imminent.
Hahaha, I'm scared 😱😱, no I'm not 💙💙💙💙💙💙.
Ahaha. Look at you. You seem not to be comfortable there. Come over. Just a step.
😂😂 wait for it😌
Oh wow, you said so many things that I have no idea of, at least not until I read this, lol. I really hope the African players push their way to the top and keep making our continent proud ☺️❤️.
Yeah. The Napoli boss doesn't want to sign African players because they will have to play AFCON and not feature in league or European matches when AFCON is on.
It was a bitter speech for the African players who replied him almost immediately.
He was like they pay so much to sign African players and should dictate what they do or not.
I wonder why the man is making things so hard for them, I hope they still get to the league.
He will regret his actions. Osimen left Napoli and he became so furious if you ask me.
Yes, he will surely regret his actions, it's obvious he's trying to be kind of selfish.
Football is life my brother 🤣🤣
So many people suffering high blood pressure get relived during the season just by watching 🤩🤩🤩
Do you relate to this bro?
Very well. Football quench a lot of heart matters. That's why you see guys running away from their nagging wives by going to watch football matches 🤣😂🤣
My belly ooo....hahahaha
But this is sure true
Husband go pick race 🏃 for nagging wives🤩 to find peace small
You know, sometimes you just want to hang out with the boys and the home is not even the best place to do that.
Football for the weekend is a good way to relax. With your wife by your corner sometimes.
But if she nags, football is a great excuse to elope the scene.
Escape route activated for nagging wives....🤣🤣
Where are my fellow hive wives? Make una come read this 🤩🤩
Dem dey wash bathroom.😂🤣🤣
I never marry oo but I go still read 😂😂.
Hehehe, what if it's the husband that nags, where will the wife run to?
She will use pillow to cover her ears and maintain her lane.
Ah!!! She life oo, women ona dey try 😭😭😩😩.
Abi, where you think say she go go?
She go watch film, zee world, lol.
See world wey dey make food burn for fire.
Hahaha 😂😂😂😂😂, we dey ignore people na, so we ignore any kind thing 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂.
Zee world I mean.
If you watch football because you want to ignore your hubby, that will be catastrophe two, if the food wey dey fire do burn.
As in ehn, what if na husband dey nag, where wife go run go? 😂😂.
Wife go run go saloon shop 🤣🤣
Hahaha, abi oo, she go go spend money 😂😂😂😂.
Hahaha, them do tell us word oo, sisters in the house che ona dey hear oo 😂😂.
It's true Nah. Nagging irritates a man. So, to keep your man at home during weekends, do not nag. He would watch the match at home even if the TV is not clear 🤣😂😂🤣
This got me cracking my rib cage, hehehe 🤣🤣🤣😂🤣🤣🤣.
It's true, some women nag too much 😏.
Like seriously. They will get into your skull and make life miserable for you.
Hahaha, it's their work oo, soft work 😂😂.
Me self I don't know oo 🤷♀️.
As in ehn, especially that one when them dey score every two two minutes, lol.
You gerrit it 👍🤩
Yes oo 😂😂.
Some things never change oo. United fans are always the first to tackle Chelsea fans. Hmmmm.
Make I no too talk. Na when una start una Thursday night football, I go get una time.
Una even qualify for Thursday night football?
With any intro, I know a Chelsea fan when I see one. This season, it's gonna be a different ball game.
Thursday night football.......... Make I no just talk.
See confidence oooo
I feel you bro. That's how you feel when you recently get a new manager. Enjoy it while it lasts ooo.
Hahaha, oops 🤭🤭.
May the best win oo 😁😁😊.
Hmm, high spirit, all the best, may the best club win, hehehe.
That's it. May the best win.
Yes oo, na so e be oo.
Wait, you na Chelsea fan?
Yes ooo. A proud one at that.
Confirm, I don see genuine Chelsea fan, that's so cool.
Die hard fan of Manchester
Let's see what this season holds😊
Reds for life.
Nah we dey rock, whether we win or lose, we mouve.
Red na for devil o😂😂
And na for danger 🔴
If you see danger
Will you still like to enter 😂😂
Ask me oo.
Arsenal started on a good note yesterday. Let's see how the other big clubs will fair.
Good note and ending are different tho😋
🤣😂Arsenal always start good, you know how it turns out later in the season.
You know too?
There's lot of heartbreak in that club
Hahaha, no oo.
Danger is a warning of anything that could turn out bad.
Yes, that's danger indeed.
I see love in your own kind of danger.
Yes oo, lots of love 😂😂💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙❤️❤️❤️❤️.
Lol, true na
Hm... Yes 😄.
Yes oo, that's the drill oo, win or lose, we muve 😁😁.
I can't wait to see what our first match for the season would look like.
I wish your club all the best ✌️💙.
This is the spirit of sportsmanship.
Yes oo, he's so true to his club 😎.
Wahala no much😂
As in ehn 😅😅
I am a Liverpool fan but I have loved Manchester United watching Giggs, Scholes, Evra and many others play then. The previous season was definitely a disappointing one for Manchester United but from what I have seen, I think they will do a lot better this season but winning a title is not guaranteed.
The new season kicks off in a few minutes and it would be very entertaining, I hope the forwards give us more entertaining games and lots of goals.
I think the title might still end with Liverpool or Manchester City again this season but it is too early to judge
Red is Red anywhere anytime.
I am not running for trophies this season, just want my boys to have a great season.
That's sure, United will have a great season.
Hmm, your boys? Sounds boyssy, lol.
Hahaha. Don't be too calculative, my boys, my club........ No stringes attached
Okay, Sir, noted 👌✌️.
Fr. It's not the trophy. A fun season is all we ask. It's been a while since anything interesting happened.
Interesting things are happening, only that you were expecting more.
Hmm, you football people, ona well done oo, my greetings dey fly for air oo, lol.
Haaa...wahala. I am not a football fanatic.😂😂
I do not know how that happened, but I do not feel the enthusiasm you football lovers feel. I can sure watch matches if I have friends seeing them, but not me looking for them myself of even following up.
I wish I could relate and join in. I am glad you tagged me either way.
I felt a typical Nigerian, and a guy, should have flair for football. You just made me shock.
I found a guy who is not a die hard football fan.
It cool though.
This place is where Nigerians gather every Friday to discourse matters or topics chosen by the moderator.
Do join in every weekend.
There are actually many of us that do not see football like most Nigerian guys
And yes, I do know about this engagement thread, but never joined. I will do well to join in every weekend from now.
That will be appreciated. I'd like to see you bring your perspective of matters arising.
Next weekend it is.

I don't know too much of football like I said before so I just chose a club by the colours they wear. My favorite color is blue so that automatically made Chelsea my best club whether they loose or they win but I hope they keep winning, I wish them all the best for this season.
Please I know I'm not alone, where are all the people that choose their clubs based on their favorite colours @merit.ahama and @belleflower are you guys with me or you guys actually love football and chose a club? 😪.
But I know @olawalium and @princessbusayo might have chosen their clubs intentionally, so you guys should come and tell us how you think this season will be like 😜😁.
Chelsea for the colour 🤣🤣
Please @hopestylist can you stop embarrassing me and my football club that I chose because of their color? 😆😆
Yes oo, blues for life.
No way, we should be proud of our club even though we chose it in a funny way.
Just wait and see, you will see that we are not alone 😂😂.
I can't wait to see that I'm not alone, it is very much needed 😂
You have me at least or am I not enough? 😪
You are 😏😏😏😜🤣
That's so sweet of you 😁😊.
Lol...you did too.. Hahahahah
Hahahah absolutely. Football is life. Wait... Chelsea? Please.. my dear you know you have more class than to associate with those loud fans. They are only humble in defeat that's why I love seeing them lose. Nothing personal, just healthy banter knowing how my club has been struggling over the years.
I don't support them for anything more than the colour though but I don't really care who wins or loss, I'm just here.
So what club are you supporting then?
Manchester United, darling.
Oh yes, I saw that already 😁😁.
You are doing well... I didn't see any blue emoji here.
No, I didn't put any 😁.
So much for the blues...
Maybe I can get you the blue or white colour of Manchester United Jersey to make you fall in love with us...either old blue Jersey of us or the current white one.
Hmm, that sounds like what will work, but until then, I'm sticking to the blue guys, hehehe.
Hahaha I understand and until then...
@oluwalium How can you talk about Chelsea like that? 😪 Whyyyy?😪
😂😂🤣🤣😂 I am sorry
🙈🙈🙈🙈😂😂🤣😂😂 I am sorry.
Please help me ask him oo 😂😂.
