  2. philoman says:

    Mtawali is olady starting like a coach prs people of MW open ua eays..mtawali give him chancy…

  3. Truck says:

    Wishing you all the best my Sports teacher!

  4. Meynard says:

    How many games has Ng’onamo been given, how many wins, draws, losses? How many games has Kinnah, Chimodzi been given? How many wins, draws, losses…statistically look at the results. you will concur with me that Ng’onamo is the best. Let us not despise the man because he has played competitive football in Malawi. Tell me if Mourinho, Ferguson, Wenger have? I know Maradona, Pele, Dunga did but have contributed less in coaching aspects. Let us love one another, let us love our country, let us talk talk facts!!!

  5. Bwampini says:

    Amangwetu, Ng’onamo is a failure.He was tried before and did not turn the Flames fortunes I would prefer Ramadhan and Mtawali not the PE teacher. I would rather go for Kinnah atleast that one produced results both at Bullets and the Flames.

  6. Ramadan which game does he know? Is there any soccer in Burundi? Which competitive League has Ramadan has ever coached? Our League in Malawi is one of the useless Soccer Leagues so if Ramadan is coaching in Malawi you think he can coach our National Team that’s an insult. Nyamilandu if it’s time to pack up & go just do so without messing up things.

    FAM don’t make mistek her go 4 Gilbert and mtawali basi

  8. BB says:

    Musiyeni akocheko nation team.

  9. Myao says:

    MBEWA ZIKASOWA AMANONA NDI SWISWIRI, I’D GO FOR RAMADHAN NOT JUST B’COZ HE’S A FOREIGNOR BUT I FEEL HE KNOWS THE GAME MUCH BETTER THAN THE OTHER S/LISTED ONES. THE MISTAKE WE SHOULD AVOID IS TO DICTATE TO HIM HIS ASSISTANTS, IF NEED LET THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE CONDUCT INTERVIEWS FOR HIS ASSISTANTS.

  10. Hunter says:

    I agree with NO.35. No single candidate out of the four can surpass Young as far as performance is concerned. FAM made a mistake of dictating assistants to Young and the assisstants were sabotaging the head coach. What FAM should have done was to let Young choose his own assistant.

  11. HUAN RESOURCE MANAGER says:

    FAM, IF YOU HAVE EARS HERE THIS. GIVE THE JOB TO RAMADHANI AND LET MTAWALI DEPUTISE HIM. VERY GOOD AND SIMPLE REASON. RAMADHANI IS A DEDICATED COACH WHO WILL NOT LOOK AT A FACE OF A PLAYER BUT PERFORMANCE. DONT COMPROMISE ON THE NGONAMOS. LET MTAWALI LEARN A BIT MORE BECAUSE HE IS STILL AN AMATURE IN COACHING. DONT SAY YOU WRE NOT PROPERLY ADVISED.

  12. Kondwani says:

    I BELIEVE RAMADHAN HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO CARRY US FORWARD

  13. Zagwa says:

    The biggest enemies of Malawi football are 1. Supporters or followers of Wanderers and Bullets who want to call shots even at National team level and 2. Unprofessional journalists like Kachina Irish who are unnecessarily emotional and unexploded. What was wrong with Young and Jack? Were they given time? Which of these 4 shortlisted coaches has an impressive track record surpassing the ones you have just fired? a. N’gonamo is just a physical education trainer that has been tried over and over, b. Mtawali smokes chamba with player, can we really be serious on him? c. Gilbert failed miserably at Silver Strikers and d. Ramadan is a foreigner which we cannot afford to pay. Kulemba awawa nde bolanso kungokhala opanda coach. Atha kumakochana okha anyamatawa. Let’s be serious on how we waste taxpayers money.

  14. gee says:

    Malawian football can best be under stood by Malawi football legends. Jack and Kinnah. We will fire these coaches very soon. Burundians must not be a part of this set up. Chimodzi shud learn from the two greats. Mtawali?

  15. gee says:

    Malawian foo

  16. sexy man says:

    Why bringing in this Burundian? Kuteleku muja mumati ma foreigners ena ali interested mumanena bakha ameneyu? Shame…….tamusiyeni Mtawali agwire ntchito yotichotsa manyazi…big Ernest.

  17. phaka says:

    Mtawari must get a chance to prove him self…..enawo munawayesa kale

  18. PEACE SOLDIER says:

    Just look at you! Where is Kinda Phiri here? Nsanje sizamanga Malawi come what may….should we say he didn’t apply for the job? And if he did why is not among those short listed? Poor thinking seriously that’s what it is here. Just imagine the lovely combination of Ernest and Kinda…..zinazi kumawafusako maganizo Eni ake ndalama mukuseweresazo….amene Ali a Malawi ok…..tizingokhalira kumamva zothandiitha Al the time zowona..? Ndemupange zibwana zanuzo pamenepo

  19. Harris Khembo says:

    Mtawali as head coach and Ng’onamo as his deputy

  20. gibo says:

    I agree with the point u raised above @ mtonjola

  21. Majete says:

    All these coaches cant help

  22. Mtonjola says:

    Appoint Ng’onamo as head Coach with Mtawali as his assistant.

  23. NYAMILANDU says:

    enawo analepherapo kale ndiye number 1 ndi Ramadhan ndipo Assistant wake ndi Enest Mtawali.

    Bola pasakhale rigging and hacking interview system.

  24. NYAKWAWA says:

    Nsanje ni nkhwidzi ndi zomwe zapangitsa Malawi kulowa pansi mumpira wa miyendo.

    Tinali ndi Kinnah Phiri yemwe anachita bwino kwambiri, koma Nyamilandu anamukhomerera mzake mpakana kumuchotsa. We want Kinnah back or else expect humiliating defeats.

  25. The best Investment is in the Loacal Coaches because according to History local coaches have got high pontential and the investment will remain in the country.

  26. gooluck says:

    hahaha,why those people you are not serious farm

  27. opportunist says:

    Ramadan is not a Malawian please. Employ Ernest

  28. Wozinyanyala says:

    How on earth would you include a left over from Burundi to be entrusted with such a responsibility of coaching the National team. Anthunu mwayamba misala kapena becoming demonic. No wonder Nyamilandu is presiding over again …..stupid administration ya anthu osadziwa …..

  29. Kwangwagwa says:

    Kodi Edington sankhalepo kale coach ndipo zinamukaniuka? It this is so then we expect failure indeed if he happens to be picked.

  30. Stupid says:

    Just suspend the whole exercise all together because better young and kina because of niptism let it be. Fosekiiiiiiiiii.

  31. the citizen... says:

    Nsazirwimo!!! This guy should be given citizenship… He is a very good coach…he loves classic soccer not just kick n run… Do you remember wen bullets played the likes of HINSTA FC from Eritrea??? Making… They played good football and brought results , hive him the post… Gilbert you must coach a local side first and prove to the people that you can deliver… You have been idle for so long…ernest too Mr ngonamo you must go back to denmark

  32. obwande says:

    Poor list of shortlisted coaches who can bring nothing to the flames apart from disaster pliz bring Kinnah again if we want progress in the team.

  33. Munthuwamba says:

    Oh please, not Ng’onamo again. The guy has been tried and he failed miserably. Let us try a Mtawali/Ramadhan combination.

  34. James says:

    Give Ng’onamo the same time you have accorded Kinnah, Chimodzi. He is the only coach who accepts to wipe our asses when their is a dry spell of coaches. He has been with Kim, Burkhard, Horner, Constantine…i am sure he has all the experience the local fraternity needs and surely deserves a one year spell with the team. He is the only coach who has coached in Europe…four times.

  35. Nga mukusowa ma coach try one coach from Zambia kuli ma coach a bwino

  36. zachamba basi, Kinnah analakwa chani. muzikocha teamuyo ndinuyo chabwino a Water.

  37. All those are failures Nzeru zakuterani eit to me as of now just leave that post vacant like that let Enerst Mutawali continue kugwirizila kupupuluma bwanji that is why mmagufa.

  38. Lucky Shawa says:

    Malawi National team has no future

  39. Neba says:

    Mesa mumati mukufuna kulemba ma coach a ku malawi nanga foreigneryo wapezeka bwanji pa shortlist? Mwina simukudziwa kuti si wa ku malawi?

  40. Edwin Maso Kayuni says:

    Chachilendo ndi chani pamenepa? Are they not the same recycled failed coaches? Stupid Malawi nkhani zake zokhumudwisana basi ishiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

  41. Dr. Matamula says:

    Eish Walter Adzipitadi. By saying kuti number two shud become assistant mudzabweretsa nazo mpungwe pungwe ngati wa Bingu ndi Cassim Chilumpha. Let who comes first appoint his Assistant Coach for best working relationship otherwise expect un founded sabotage claims. Yawo ija a Malawi. On the other hand those coaches are spent forces no value added mwina chanzeru angakachite is to teach our tired boys new styles on fucking when on official errands outside Malawi. Maka uyo uyoyo uyo. Kkkkkk. A Malawi mudzapsa usekelera nyemba kumeneko?

  42. deadend says:

    With these four as the top candidates, one can be 110% certain that the outcome will be the same – failure to qualify for the ACoN as well as the world cup. Malawi needs to invest in a serous foreign coach because the capacity of the local guys is very wanting.

  43. wales banda says:

    Kodi kumalawi makoshi kulibe, shame

  44. chiweta says says:

    poyamba muyichose team iyi mumupikasano yonse kwa 7years, then musankhe ma player ngati a under 20 wokwana mwina 32 ndipo muwalembe ngati ntchito azilandila month end ndi ma coach awo then after such a given period muzayipange release team yo kumpikisano yonse, believe me or not we gana see a change, otherwise tizingopita kumipikisano just to attend and keep on wasting resources

  45. dadaboma says:

    By leaving out Kina Phiri as coach, Flames is extinguished, never to glow again. Kina is the only person who could have breathed life into Flames.

  46. BELIEVE ME COME AUG 1 IT WILLBE RAMADAN WHO WILL BE IN~CHARGE OF FLAMES TACTICS SECONDED BY NG’ONAMO (ALL BULLETS RELATED PERSONS)WAKWIYA NDI MFITI

  47. Bibo says:

    Malawi,Malawi,Malawi what a mediocre country! So all the short-listed coaches you call them qualified? Leaders in this country be politicians or sports administrators are not serious about issues of national interest.What baffles my mind is the fact that political leaders are busy putting money in their pockets while failing to fund a national coach from abroad.By the way, Ramadan is not Malawian so why want a local coach when you include a foreigner? Football will never develop in this land of the Lomwes.

  48. For Gods sake Nsanzurwimo Rhamadani is not a malawian.Why shortlist him.Waste of resources.

  49. Wistombi says:

    Where Is Home Sick Kinnah Phiri?

  50. mbundesigeya says:

    Recycled coaches again…….Malawi football will never change

  51. In the know says:

    Mpaka Gilbert Chirwa? Give the job to Ramadan and thereafter give him Malawian citizenship and employ him as a local coach period!
