When AP were granted some time with Archers owner, Jimbo, he let out a few secrets that really are interesting.

“I’m scared of lions. Especially up close at the zoo. They really are powerful creatures. The king of beasts, I’d say”

When asked if this was related to the UFL team lions of munich this is what he told AP.

“No no no. You misunderstood me. I was referring to just the beast not the team. We respect their history and their team. I’m friends with their manager. We do a lot of business together. I’m happy for his success.”

Then we probed further on what the Archers boss thinks of things.

“I’m also afraid of crashing waves for some reason. Maybe it was because of the time I stayed in a seaside vacation villa of Alfredo (Varela). Suddenly a storm brewed one evening and I had no choice but to stick it out and try to weather the storm. It was a little traumatic for me. The winds sounded like crashing waves. My fear was the waves could crash into my window at any moment” the Verdeneri boss added

“I do love dogs. I’m a lover and I have four at my mansion. Two mixed breed dogs and two Siberian Huskies”

He was also asked about what was his most embarrassing moment in recent memory was.

“It has to be the barong (local Filipino formal costume) incident”

“One afternoon in a political event, I had to wear paperclips for cuff links since I forget to bring my cuff links. It was embarrassing!” the boss chuckled

Juan Miguel E. Reside, or Jimbo to many, is an oil tycoon in the country and has an estimated net worth of 10 billion US dollars. His business has already expanded to energy generation and engine manufacturing.



Archers owner, Jimbo, told Archer Pride that at the team needs to address the needs of the team as soon as possible. The Verdeneri boss feels like the team needs to push harder for a top 3 spot to assure them of RoW action next term.

“I feel that the team has really underachieved. We’ve been one of the country’s top clubs and now I feel we have let ourselves drop season after season.” the boss said to AP

“I think that we need to start in attack and midfield. We need to sell some guys and attract top quality talent. It seems that many clubs are pushing for a win now strategy, buying old but developed talent, and it is something that I have considered. But success cannot be rushed and we want to give our youngsters a chance to shine and learn with the senior team.”

The Green Archers are sitting at the ninth spot and level in points with Saint Francis Athletic and Blue Wave FC.
