Re: Central Defenders OMG

IMO, whilst Ajayi has been pretty decent for the SE, I haven't anything from him (wearing the GWG) that indicates he is level above Omeruo right now. All CDs in the squad are at around similar level. Omeruo is probably my preferred starter for now. I do like the fact that at West Brom he plays highe...

Re: This is the Best SE I have seen since 1994

Best team since 1994? Not sure. Maybe once they win an AFCON title or reach a WC QF. Definitely one of the better SE teams and there is is clearly room for improvement but for me personally 2013-14 team put in more convincing performances against stronger opposition (competitive games) . However, yo...

Yes, but firstly let him proactively file for a switch in allegiance rather than only talking about wanting to play for Nigeria.

Re: NFF President Amaju Pinnick Out To Woo Saka For Nigeria

This sounds like a briefing from the NFF to the media. The aim to display that the NFF are doing their utmost to convince the player. Therefore if Saka decides not to commit to Nigeria, no one can blame the NFF for "not trying". We've have seen a number of fans previously blame the NFF for...

Re: Semi Ajayi

There are a number of factors that affect the ability of HB players to compete effectively within the SE and truthfully these issues do not lie on Rohr. However, maybe I am just being ...

Tosin Aiyegun with a goal and an assist for Zurich yesterday vs Basel. He dominated FC Basel in central midfield and looks like he's already too good for this league in his third match. I watched him a little of him. Looked pretty good. It will be interesting to see how he progresses, could be one ...

Re: Nigeria Never Shown Interest In Me – Tomori

This Tomori guy is a liar. If he really wanted to play for Nigeria he would have turned down the last call up he got from England and indicated to the NFF that he wanted a switch. Also i find it hard to belive the NFF never looked his way all this time. Dude is just trying to save face. People need...

Re: Eze Picks England

Damunk, One can identify as a Nigerian along as British.

There are many other ways to contribute to Nigeria's development than simply playin...

Misleading headline The headline might be a bit provoking but it is not misleading at all. If Eze tells Nigeria to wait now it means nothing less than he wants to keep his options open to be called up by England. Somehow I believe that the english FA works with strategic psychological methods. Beca...

Not a surprise really. As I noted in a previous thread. He was part of the England u-21 squad just last month. I didn't see any indication that he would switch allegiance at this stage.

Hmmm....he needs to think very carefully. He is only 22. He seems frustrated with his lack of opportunities at the German u-21s at this current moment. This how in 18 months time if he manages to start playing regularly at Wolfsburg he will completely have forgotten the prospect of playing for Nige...

This is no different from having two babes only one of whom you can marry. You might choose one but if you had the opportunity of keeping the other as a side chick, you would. Bottom line is if you choose one it in no means implies you didn't or don't love the other. And if the first choice fokks u...
