Edema Peter: Hard work paved the way for my Loan move to ASVO FC

Life is all about putting in the extra effort. Making the most of every opportunity that comes your way. I love the way German-based Ghanian international put it: “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination, and hard work”

For Edema Peter, he attributed his recent loan move to the Benin Republic Premier League Side- ASVO FC, to the hard work, determination, and effort of his coach at Gbagada FC, Lagos, Nigeria.

The Ondo State-born footballer, who has had a fairy-tale rise in his footballing career, recently shared with me his story during a recent live chat on Instagram.

“Last season, I knew if I could do well and score goals, I will secure a move. I also knew if the video of my goals goes out there, I will move”

The hunger and drive to excel pushed him beyond limits and he indeed shone brightly with Gbagada FC, as he emerged Gbagada FC top scorer. In all competitions, he was involved in Sixteen goals. 

Edema scored fourteen goals and made two assists, scoring two hattricks in the process. The amazing fact about some of the goals he scored, is that 60% of those goals were scored aerially.

When asked about the secret of his aerial prowess, he opened this: “While growing up, I was nicknamed the “Head that burst the ball”, because I was always scoring via headers”.

Edema also shared how he always watched documentaries on Cristiano Ronaldo about scoring via headers. “I discovered even though I don’t have so much height, I do have jump power. I learned the principle of staying in the air while watching documentaries about Cristiano Ronaldo, and that helped improved my aerial prowess”

An excited Edema Peter, who is hoping to replicate his goal-scoring record with the Benin Republic club-side chipped in on how the loan breakthrough became a reality: “The work I put in last season created this opportunity for me in the Benin Republic. The video clips of the fourteen goals I scored were sent directly to the President of ASVO FC”

“Immediately he finished watching the video clips, he put a call through to Gbagada FC President, Akinyelu Olajide and contract negotiation was started”

The young striker who is currently hoping to thread the same path of foremost Nigerians like Razak Omotoyossi, Samson Akinyola, Mathieu Adeniyi, Wassiou Oladipupo, and Muri Ogunbiyi is currently on a Pre-season tour with ASVO FC.

nagging

Four practical ways to deal with a nagging spouse

Nagging can be defined as an incessant complaint by a partner about someone’s habit or behavioral pattern in a relationship. It is a common cause of most broken relationships. It can start with a salient or hushed remark about simple issues like food, dress, or housekeeping. The question is: “How then can one handle a nagging spouse”?

Show love and understanding

The more love you shower upon your spouse who is always nagging, the less frequent the occurrence of nagging. It, however, takes more than an effort to display love where nagging goes to the extreme. Love is like a stream that quenches the flame ignited by nagging. Love can forgive any wrongdoing on your person, no matter how severe it is. Life can be difficult sometimes especially with families and kids coming in. Things may not go exactly as you planned, and this may result in nagging from either partner, but it is very important that love and understanding be shown.

Open channels of communications

The urge is always strong to avoid direct contact with a nagging wife or husband. When partners no longer talk to each other due to the problem of nagging, it can escalate the entire issue and blow it out of proportion.

I have often seen couples who avoid each other for a lengthy period because of this single problem and at the end of the day; it becomes extremely difficult to reconcile both parties due to the enormous damage that has been inflicted. The more open both partners are, the easier it is to handle this negative attribute which is capable of destroying relationships.

Appreciate any positive progress made

When a partner makes any positive progress in a given area, it is good that appreciation should be extended. When an individual knows his/her effort to create a positive change is being noticed, it will aid total transformation and eliminate negative barriers.

It is not enough to complain about things your partner has failed to do, but also to appreciate the little things he/she does. It may sound childish, but it thus works wonders.

Never retaliate

There is always the temptation to retaliate when the issue of nagging crops up, but it is important to avoid falling into such temptations. The process of nagging creates a hurting effect in an individual and the best way to handle it is not to retaliate because two wrongs cannot make a right. Retaliation is a sign of immaturity and a lack of forgiveness.

intelligent

I thought those who wore glasses were intelligent

While growing up, I was of the impression that girls and boys who wore glasses were intelligent and smart. It was a weird and unproven belief that I carried for years. Glasses, by the way, is not in any way associated with intelligence or smartness. Unfortunately, I just assumed blindly, that those who had it were intelligent.

Years later, while in the university, I had a funny encounter with a guy who was putting on glasses, and this incident changed my perception completely. It was during our 2nd semester exams and we were writing one of our departmental courses in the School Hall.

I had arrived on time for the exams and was not confident, because I never had the best of preparations for the exams. I was however delighted when a smart-looking guy in my department walked in to sit close to me.

What made me even happier was the fact that he was putting on glasses. I assumed, though erroneously, that he was super intelligent. It was an assumption that backfired so badly.

As soon as the exams started, I did my best to answer 3 of the 5 compulsory questions and there was still time left before the end of the exams. I looked by my side and saw my glass-friend looking so busy and focused. In my thought, I assumed he would be able to give me a hint that would be useful.

I asked him if he understands the number 4 question, and he looked at me blankly. “I was hoping you would help me with the number 1 question he stammered”. At this point, I was confused and disappointed. Later found out he had not written down anything meaningful.

Also found out he wasn’t as intelligent as I assumed, as the glasses were merely medicated glasses. I had to shift focus from my glass-friend and dig deep to complete the rest of the exams. It was a bitter experience.

My perception changed, and the whole idea about glasses and intelligence became a mirage. To date, I never stopped laughing each time I remember that particular incident because it would have been disastrous if I had put all my trust in my glass-wearing friend.

I had learned my lessons and now, when I see anyone putting on glasses, I understand that they are just like me. Some mostly, are just for fun, while others are for medical purposes. We all live in a funny world, and sometimes, our high expectations of others may be counterproductive.

Manchester City

Manchester City poised to make History

Never in the history of Manchester City has the club ever played in the UEFA Champions League Finals. Only once has Manchester City reached the semi-final stage of the UEFA Champions League. That was in the 2015/2016 season under coach Manuel Pellegrini. Manchester City was eliminated by Real Madrid 1-0, after a barren draw in the first Leg.

Today, the 4th of April, 2021, the current EPL Leaders, and one of the only two English clubs remaining in the competition, play host to Paris Saint Germaine of France in a crunch 2nd Leg UCL encounter. The first Leg ended 2-1 in City’s favour, with goals coming from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.

What Manchester City needs to progress to the final for the very first time is a win, a draw or a 1-0 loss. On current form, Manchester City is the overwhelming favourite to progress ahead of the Parisian club, with Kylian Mbappe, the danger man of PSG rumoured to be nursing an injury.

Pep Guardiola is expected to keep the same starting eleven that achieved a huge result in Paris, except for one or two changes at left-back, where Oleksander Zinchenko is expected to start in place of Joao Cancelo.

The expectation is high, and all eyes would be on the home side to perform at their very best. Gundogan, Rodri and Bernardo Silva are expected to orchestrate the midfield, while Ruben Dias who has been a Trojan in defence is expected to start alongside John Stone or Aymeric Laporte. Kyle Walker is a sure berth at right-back.

In between the sticks, Ederson Moraes is assured of his place after a splendid performance in the first leg. Upfront, Riyad Mahrez, Foden and Debruyne are expected to start. Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Fernandinho, Nathan Ake, Ferran Torres and Benjamin Mendy are options on the bench.

One notable absentee from the PSG side would be Senegalese defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye who was red-carded in the first leg after a reckless challenge on IILkay Gundogan. Danilo Periera is expected to take his place.

History beckons on Manchester City and the beauty about today’s clash are the motivation and spirit within the camp. It would be the last chance for Sergio Kun Aguero to have a feel of the coveted trophy, and the boys would want to give him a perfect parting gift.

Both sides are desperate to reach the finals, and Brazilian international Neymar speaking ahead of the encounter says “I am ready to die on the pitch to ensure my team progress ahead of Manchester City”. That is surely a rallying call.

The match is billed to be an exciting encounter as both sides are noted for an attractive brand of football. The Etihad stadium beckons on the Manchester City warriors to make a push for history. Heroes are bound to be made and tears of sorrow and disappointment will surely flow. The end of 90 minutes will determine the course of history.
