Cameroon Elite One: Discover How Tonnerre Kalara Champions Top 3 Unbeaten Runs In The Championship This Season

Published

on

The Cameroon Elite One championship this season can be rated as one of the best over since its creation to professionalism (Professional Football) as every club aims to be the league winner and none wants to be relegated to the Elite Two championship. Worth noting ever since the start of the 2019/20 season is, only three teams have gone more than seven league games unbeaten in the league thus far ( Tonnerre Kalara Club, PWD Bamenda, and Cotonsport of Garoua).

1.TONNERRE KALARA CLUB

Tonnerre Kalara Club 11

Tonnerre Kalara Club is the only club in the championship this season with 11 games unbeaten which began with a 0-0 draw with Colombe on matchday 3 and ever since then, Tonnerre Kalara Club was unbeaten in 11 games, recording 5wins, 6draws and 8 clean sheets.

Why Tonnerre Kalara Club Had A Long Unbeaten Run?

With coach Sylvanus Nguekep at the technical bench, key defenders like Onyehor Ugoe and Steve Mimche and star man and veteran striker Gregoire Nkama who scored close to 8 goals were key elements who contributed to the long unbeaten run as they recorded 5 wins, 6 draws and 8 clean sheets during their 11 games unbeaten run. This, however, came to end with a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Avion Academy

It should be noted that TKC has harvested just 6pts from a possible 30 after that unbeaten 11 games run and surprisingly occupies the 17th position with just 32 points at the relegation zone

2.PWD BAMENDA

PWD Bamenda

The “Abakwa boys” who won 7 points out of a possible 18, in their first 6games of the season, coach David Pagou had to change things around as he combined young and old players to come up with a solid unit.

The Bamenda base side actually went 9 games unbeaten as they recorded 6wins, 3draws and seven clean sheets in the process.

Why The Unbeaten Run FOR PWD BAMENDA?

With their poor run of form in the first six games, coach David Pagou had to change the fortunes of the club as PWD became genuine title contenders during this unbeaten run. Key players like backwire Ngwang Brian, Nchindo John Bosco and Leon Boyomo who is the league’s top scorer with 11 goals couple with their fan club were all elements that made PWD Bamenda enjoy a 9 game unbeaten run.

However, the unbeaten run came to an end as Fovu beat them 2-1 on matchday 16 and It should be noted that PWD Bamenda has harvested just 9 points out of a possible 24 in their next 8 games after the 9 games unbeaten run. This was because of injuries of some key Players like John Bosco and the lights of Leon Boyomo and Ngwang Brian who were in involve the CHAN preparation caused PWD Bamenda their inconsistency after their 9game undefeated streak.

3.COTONSPORT OF GAROUA

coton sport

It’s no news that Cotonsports will be amongst the top three long unbeaten runs of the season.

The Cotonites went 9 Games unbeaten this season recording 5 wins, 4 draws and three clean sheets in the process.

Why Cotonsport Were Unbeaten In 9 Straight Matches?

With an experienced coach in the name of Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso at the helm of the technical bench, coupled with the professionalism that characterized the club hierarchy, the Garoua base side had to go for a 9games unbeaten run.

Also with cream of experienced players like Thomas Etah Bawak, Alphonse Tientcheu, Bang Binjeme, and goalkeeper Omossola Simon were also key to the 9games undefeated streak.

However, this unbeaten run came to an end in the hands of Panthere as they lost 2-0.

This was due to the fact that coach Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso was appointed assistant to Clement Arroga to handle the intermediate lions.

This had a negative impact as coach Ndoumbe Bosso was busy concentrating on the CHAN preparation rather than Cotonsport.

This caused Cotonsport a lot as they went 8games without a win (D5, L3) hence led to the termination of Ndoumbe Bosso’s contract and Souleymanou Aboukakar was appointed the new coach of the cotonites.

The fact that Cotonsport lost close to 6 of their key Players to the CHAN Preparation was also another factor that led to Cotonsport’s inconsistent form.

However, PWD and Cotonsport despite their inconsistency, they still occupy the top two positions of the league table.

Cameroon

Cameroon Elite One: Panthere Sportive Of NDE Uncomfortable As Leads Worst Top 5 Attacking Teams After Day 28.

Published

on

The classification table published on the Fecafoot website shows clearly the clubs with the porous attacks or leaky attacks with just 6 playing days to go.

1.PANTHERE SPORTIVE DU NDE

Panthere Sportive du Nde

After 28 games in the championship, The club can only be proud of just 18 goals scored with an average of  0.64 per game which is the lowest comparing it with the other clubs in the League. This probably explains why no player (Attacker) of the club is among the first 22 top scorers this far and only the goalkeeper of the club was selected in the preselected list in preparation for the Total African Nation Championship (CHAN). According to the goalkeeper of Panthere Sportive of Nde  Anye Derrick Fru told Dream FM reporters in Bamenda after their nil draws on the 11th December 2019 in match day 12 “that the club comes from a Region were 7 of Cameroon top-flight clubs come from and therefore makes it difficult for them to get the best with the limited resources they have”. That seems to be true because the club finds itself in the 15th position which is the last among the 7 clubs in that Region. With just 6 games to the end of the championship, the coach and the administration will need to effectuate their attackers and bring out the best from them for more goals to be scored and win a better position to scare off the relegation zone.

2.TONNERRE KALARA CLUB

Tonnerre Kalara Club 11

With a team nursing the ambition of bringing back the glory days, one will not belive that Tonnerre Kalara Club that was performant in the first round of the championship now sees themselves battling to escape the relegation zone. With 28 games gone into the championship, The club can only be proud of just 19 goals scored with Gregoire Nkama scoring 7 goals out of the 19, Meaning the rest of his Teammates have scored just 12 goals amongst them. A possible explanation could be that the club’s general performance this season has not been the best as they find themselves at the 17th spot with 8 wins in 28 games. Others in their viewpoint blame the inhouse battle amongst the leaders which has affected the performance of the players and lack of resources to manage the players. As historic as the team with a high portfolio in Cameroon football, it will be disappointing if the club is relegated back to the Elite two championship. With six playing days to the end of the championship, Team spirit and back to winning ways will be a better solution to escape the relegation zone.

3.UMS OF LOUM

ums loum

USM of Loum has been one of the best in the championship in the last four years since its promotion in the top flight championship (Elite One) with two league titles and a prestigious cup of Cameroon. But surprisingly this season, the club has battled with form and could only find themselves among the porous attacking teams in the championship this far as they occupy the 9th spot.  They have only managed to score 23 goals after 28 games in their account the worst goal scoring records since their demise in the Elite One and are only above Panthere Sportive and Tonnerre Kalara Club but the club can be proud of the best defense in the championship conceding just 19 goals, Although no player for the club makes the preselected list in preparation for the CHAN. A possible explanation for their poor attacking performances could be their system of play (Defensive), which doesn’t give room for too many goals and lack of players benefits have seen the team performance dropped drastically. With only six games to the end of the league, UMS Loum will need to improve their goal scoring ability to stay at the middle of the league table because their safety from relegation will depend on the goals they score as just 5 points separate them from relegation fighters Panthere Sportive of Nde and Avion Academy.

4. AVION ACADEMY FC

Avion Academy and Pierre Batamack

Avion Acadamy this season has been one of the teams competing for the league title this season with their brilliant performances during the first round of the championship. But with nothing to write home about, the second round of the championship has become a complicated one for Avion Academy with five outings as of January without a victory, Avion Academy moves from a comfortable fourth position and now plying their trade in the relegation zone. Only 24 goals have been scored with 28 games gone and are only higher than Pantherre Sportive of Nde, Tonnerre Kalara Club and UMS of Loum possibly because Mfeque Rodrigue has scored 8 goals out of the 24. Their general performance in the second round has not been the best. They have lost 13 games and draw 6 out of the 28 games played. A possible explanation for their poor attacking performance could be their poor defensive nature (with 34 goals conceded) which gives less stability in the team. All hopes are not lost for the team as just 5points separates them from 9th place UMS of Loum. Mfeque Rodrique will need to pair with another swift attacker for more goals if they nurse any hope of escaping the relegation zone.

5. DRAGON OF YAOUNDE.

dragon yaounde

Dragon FC Yaounde

With Dragon Of Yaounde already doomed for relegation at the 18th position with just 28points from 28game making an average of 1point per game but the club seems to have a better-attacking performance than Pantherre Sportive Of Nde, Tonnerre Kalara Club, UMS of Loum and Avion Academy. With 28 games gone, the club has 25 goals in their account. A possible reason why they find themselves among the worst attacking teams in the championship this far could be their generally poor performance in all compartment, they have lowest wins (7 wins), the highest lost games (14 lost games), conceded the highest amount of goals (43 goals conceded) and have the highest goal difference (-18). It will take a miracle for Dragon Of Yaounde to survive relegation and this will only be possible with 6wins without a defeat “IF NOT WHY NOT”
