Adamawa United ( Justin Madugu )
Having the worst manager of the season and finishing 20th is not good . Justin and Adamawa management got many thing wrong this season
Actually were bad in there performance both home and away fixtures but playing away from home for more than 3 years was not good for the Yola Team.
No team lost more Home matches in the league last season than Adamawa United
Ifeanyi Ubah ( Uche Okagbue )
We were disappointed last season with the performance of former Aiteo Champion Ifeanyi Ubah . 2018/2019 season saw Ifeanyi ubah reaching the super 6 playoffs in lagos .
Without much signing in the transfer window for the nnewi based club and complaint of not paying player’s salaries , one will understand fully that Ifeanyi Ubah was not ready to survive in the most competitive league in Africa
Warri Wolves ( Ortega Deniran )
Shouldn’t be Judged too harshly .
The former Enyimba Assistant Coach was trying to kick Wolves on to the next level after getting point in aba and at home , but there was no much time for him to make sure that wolves survived the drop zone
When i met him one and one , he told me about the condition of his boys , the training arrangement wasn’t the best ,travelling an hour from warri to Ozoro was not encouraging for the team.
Coach Ortega is one Young coach , we will like to see much in the npfl and not in the Nnl especially for his famous Ice bath and his Attacking sense
Jigawa Golden stars ( Gilbert Opana )
Another team that plays away from home . We were not expecting to see much from them , knowing the fact the team lack that financial ability to compete in the league , Although they got some valuable away 3 points against Abia warriors , breaking there years of away win jinx .
It was almost certain that every team coming to Kaduna is expected to get at least a draw against the Dutse side
Replacing Coach Tata with Coach Opana didn’t yield any positive impact
Sunshine Stars ( Ayodeji Ayeni )
One will be thinking Sunshine stars will be relegated but the appointment of Coach Ayodeji was enough to pull a relegation survival battle .
Getting first 3 points in the league for 5 months against Dakkada in the match day 26 was a turning point for the Akure side
Although Sunshine stars fans will be expecting much from there beloved club next season , maybe a continental ticket won’t be bad for one of the most decorated club side in Nigeria
Wikki Tourist ( Usman Abdallah )
Yes , He didn’t finish the season with wikki Tourist but one was expecting him to be a title contender .
The former Npfl title winner with Enyimba came to wikki with much expectations .
Many signings , Many pundits predicated his side to finish high in the league , Especially with the arrival of former Enyimba Captain Andrew but wikki had to finish with 45 points , 2 points above the relegated Jigawa
Abia warriors ( Imama )
Coach Imama Came and convinced the board that his squad wasn’t good enough .
He had the backing of his employees but the romance with his boss started fading and he was given 3 matches ultimatum.
A team that has the likes of Nzube , Ojobo , Ojo , Okemiri Anthony , Gabriel Innocent , Emeka obinna , Utibe , fatai and obaje should be fighting for a continental ticket and not relegation battle .
Heartland ( Fidelis Ilechukwu )
Given the fact everyone expected them to be okay all season and fidelis gets some credit for putting a strong side even with a one year ban of signing new players l
Kastina United ( Azeez )
Always there to spoil the fun for the big teams , all thanks to the long distance to kastina State .
Ending Akwa united Unbeaten run and beating defending champion Enyimba 3-1 is something to boost there morale next season
Dakkada ( Umar Danlami )
The former Kada city and Fc Taraba Coach did a wonderful job with the Uyo Academy graduates .
10 Mountain of fire and miracles
started very well , rather exposed . There’s something encouraging about the club and there recruitment system
A miracle worker , basically i give him a grade B+ this season
Plateau United ( Abdul Maikaba )
The last 3 seasons appears to be a Npfl brilliance for the jos team .
Getting the champions league ticket and been knock out in the first round by simba sc of Tanzania had been an unclearable hurdle for a side predicted to challenge for the title
Lobi stars ( Dogo Kabiru )
Not a bad season for coach Dogo , but we will be expecting to see more from him next season
Ranges International ( Salisu Yusuf )
This was not a successful season for the second successful club in Nigeria.
This season was a failure for the Enugu Team . The club faces big decision this summer with the performance of some players .
Every lover of Nigeria league believes that Rangers should be challenging for the title or the continental places but this season it looks like Rangers wasn’t ready to challenge for any
Coach Yusuf will have a long home work to do
Kano Pillars ( Yaro Yaro ) ( Emmanuel Soccoia )
A very disappointing season for the 4th time NPFL winners and finishing the season with 64 points and no continental football is something that won’t interest the pillars fans.
With the arrival of super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa on a short term and the presence of the free scoring machine Rabiu Ali .
Nassarawa United ( Bala Nikyu )
Yes Unlucky loosing the continental tickets to both Enyimba and loosing the Aiteo cup to Bayelsa United .
We all saw the good works of Coach Bala with the lafia side.
Nassarawa United season could have been more fantastic if they had not drop vital points at home and never looked like challenging for the title
Kwara United ( Biffo )
Everyone thought that Kwara United would struggle again this season after finishing 19th last season before the league was suspended due to covid-19 but Coach Abdullahi Biffo and his boys had a wonderful season .
Will I say the best season for Kwara United in a decade.
Getting full points in Jos .
No one saw Kwara United getting 65 points this season
Enyimba ( Fatai Osho )
Osho deserves credit for steering Enyimba to the CAF confederation cup Quarterfinals and also finishing Runners up in the league , before the board points was awarded to Rivers United at the expenses of Jigawa Golden stars
Osho was Unlucky with the number of injured players in his squad , the likes of Guera , Esobe and Ekong Christian not been able to complete a full 90 minutes with the most successful club in Nigeria
Getting away points was never a problem for Fatai’s led team . 6 away wins
Rivers United ( Stanley Eguma )
Big money spenders Rivers United had a good start of the season Under Coach Eguma .
Rivers United would have been Undoubtedly disappointed if they had not qualify for continental football but thanks to Jigawa Golden stars Negligence
Akwa United ( Kennedy Boboye )
Fully deserved to win the league after the disappointing run from there closet rival Enyimba FC
Coach Boboye have managed 5 different NPFL clubs winning the title with 2 different clubs
Getting point in Aba , Kano and in Jos is something that you don’t see every season and Boboye was capable to the task
