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
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
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
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 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.
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”

PWD Bamenda could be stripped off its title of Champion of Cameroon- Learn how!
PWD of Bamenda who were crowned champions of Cameroon of the 2019/2020 football season after FECAFOOT called an end to the football season because of the coronavirus pandemic now risk loosing their crown because of an adjacent conflict.
The “Abakwa boys” who are actively preparing for their premiere at the upcoming CAF Champions League might see their dreams evaporate in thin air because of an adjacent conflict between Cameroon’s FA, FECAFOOT and it’s suspended Professional football League body LFPC.
The conflict between these two entities didn’t find a local solution and the matter was carried by the LFPC to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the following demands:to challenge its suspension pronounced by the federation on August 22, 2019, to cancel the professional championships season 2019-2020 organized by the Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) of FECAFOOT and to rehabilitate General Pierre Semengue, president of the LFPC.
The LFPC was indefinitely suspended by FECAFOOT which created a Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) to run the 2019/2020 football season.
General Pierre Semengue at the helm of the LFPC contested this suspension, taking the case to FECAFOOT’s appeals committee that gave a deaf ear. On January 29, 2020, Chamber of Conciliation and Arbitration of Cameroon’s national Olympic Committee issued a report of non-conciliation and the LFPC carried its case to the CAS.
The LFPC has paid processing fee of 14 million FCFA at the CAS and the latter had demanded FECAFOOT to provide its defence memo the latest on June 1st 2020. CAS has appointed a single judge, Professor Pascal Pichonnaz to arbitrate in this case between FECAFOOT and the LFPC.
In case the LFPC wins, the 2019-2020 season will be purely and simply cancelled and the LFPC and its president will be rehabilitated. This implies that PWD of Bamenda’s title of champion of Cameroon might loose its crown. Such a decision in the prevailing socio-political environment might create animosity in the minds of many.
Government through the Ministry of Sports and physical education should take the bull by the horn and bring a rapid solution to this conflict between these two football entities that has been existing for a couple of years now.
The decision of the CAS is being awaited in the upcoming days.
