HISTORY: Football matches that ended on 8:2 final Score line.

History we say repeat itself. In football, there have been so many historical events in this 21st century. In football we don't expect to see a very wide goal margin because it can be highly provocative to the players, managers and the club football fans as well.

1. Arsenal FC Vs Manchester United ended up 8:2 in Community Shield football match.

2. Manchester United Vs Arsenal FC ended up 8:2 in English Premier league 2011/2012 season after 59 years. Here the former Arsenal manager Arsen Wenger felt so ashamed and disappointed. That was the worst ever defeat to Arsenal since 1896.

3. Now we had FC Barcelona of Spain been humiliated by in form German giant Bayern Munchen on a final score of 8:2 in a UEFA champions league Quarter final match. Sports loving men and women all over the world called the 8-2 quarter-final loss pathetic and embarrassing. But to me, i will say that Barcelon's proud heritage had been thrown in the waste bin.

After the match, the longest serving defender for Barcelona Gerard Pique did not waste time to say that changes were needed and in my own opinion, i think Barcelona president should sack the new boss Quique Setien, who was recruited in January 2020.

OPINION: Security threaths in Afam Power plant, Rivers State.

As the hosting communities of Afam power station in Port Harcourt Rivers State Shotdown the daily activities of Generation and Transmission in Afam power plant, there's urgent need for Federal government, Rivers State government in conjunction with the new owners of the power generation and Transmission company, Transnational Corporation of Nigeria, Transcorp Plc to startup a swift negotiation with the concerned communities to restore peace and order as some angry mobs and hoodlums within the communities plans to vandalize the facilities.

The Afam power station is a thermal generating station located in Rivers State at about 40 kilometers away from Port Harcourt main City Rivers State.

The hosting communities have enjoyed the light for 58 years and said that they signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the management of the previous company to use the light without payment forever.

But the new owners of Afam power plant, Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc (Transcorp) which is a subsidiaries of Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Transcorp Hotels Calabar, Transcorp Power and Transcorp Energy.

Transcorp plc acquired Afam power plant in 2013 by the approval of Federal Government, the National Council on Privatisation (NCP) and the Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE) for their belief in the private sector as well as the efforts being made to improve the power sector in Nigeria. I think that transcorp plc management team needs to start negotiations fast to secure their facilities in the Plant yard.
