As you would know, if you’ve been following our coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations 2012, it’s nearly time for Africa. And it’s time for us to predict on some of the outcomes over the coming weeks, including the most important of them all – who will win it? This is the chance for you to laugh at us in a couple of weeks (and beyond), when it’s all over, and know who’s judgement to trust in future, perhaps. The bad news is some of the team couldn’t make predictions due to academic commitments. The good news is we’ve gone to the trouble of recruiting Tom Legg, East African football connoisseur, to add rich knowledge to more than compensate for the loss of it.
Here is the full panel for the predictions:
Tom Legg – Tom is an East African Football enthusiast and expert – and I’m not saying ‘expert’ just for the sake of it, you only need to cast an eye here for his revolutionary chalkboard-tactical pieces, something I’m pretty confident hasn’t been done previously for East African teams. For further reading of his expert reports and tactical analyses you can visit his blog Eastern Promise and follow him on twitter.
Salim – Editor and co-founder of this humble site, he’s just normal and obsessed with all things football.
James - Co-founder and writer, the strategist behind our marketing ploys.
Sagar – Editor and writer, has a fetish for fringe players and is equally knowledgeable in the field of cricket.
Amro – Editor and co-founder, his current dream is that Zico will lead Iraq to Brazil in 2014 so he can join the samba party.
Joe – Making his debut appearance, Joe is the recent addition to the squad, expect detailed and intellectually-stimulating pieces sometime soon from him.
Kevin – Another debutant, Kevin, who’s Ghanaian, is one of the two members on the team with a native nation to support at the ACN. You can expect hilarious material from him so long as this blog exists.
Tom aside, the rest of us are regular writers on this blog and need little introduction. If you’re not familiar with us, you can read more about us here.
To the business at hand!
