  1. ቡድኑ በአሪፍ እንቅስቃሴ ላይ ይገኛል በጣም አሪፍ ነው።

  2. it is a niece victory
    But still there are problems that needs to be rectified to ensure victory in the return leg match.

  3. A team is a team. Awarding different amount of money is distractive. Plz treat the players on the roster as one and award all equal amount and make them feel as a team.

  4. every coach has his/her own philosophy. The most important thing to gauge them is by the fruitful result they bring to the team.
    Do not compare Sewnet or Barreto with the new Coach Yohanes. leave the new Coach alone so he can do his job.

  5. የቡድኑ አጨዋወት በፊት በሰውነት ቢሻው ግዜ የነበረው አይነት አይደለም። ሰውነት ቢሻው ቡድኑን በጣም ኣሻሽሎት ነበር፣ የሕብረት ጨዋታቸው አቻ አልነበረውም። እንዳውም አንዳንድ ተቺዎች የኢትዮጵያን ቡድን ከባርሴሎና ጋር አመሳስለውት ነበር።

    ይህ ቡድን ነገር እየተጠነከረ ሲመጣ ተቋቁሞ መወጣት የሚችል አልመሰለኝም። ዮሐንስ ሣሕሌ በሰውነት ቢሻው ሥራና ውጤት ላይ ተጨማሪ መሻሻሎችን መገንባት እንጂ ሰውነት የሠራውን አፍርሶ ሌላ ስልት ማዋል አልነበረበትም።

    የሚይጠቅግብ እንጀራ ከምጣዱ ያስታውቃል እንዲሉ የዚህ ቡድን አያያዝ ካልተሻሻለ በቀር ከወዲሁ ሳየው ግን አላማረኝም።
