Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

He’s a 70m Eur striker. He’s done a lot. Lukaku at a similar stage was comparable to Osimhen today. The question is whether Osimhen can make a similar development. As for the Abraham comparison, I struggle with that one. Roma paid 34m Eur for Tammy in an inflated market. Comparing goals is not real...

Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

Wow! Talk about being blunt. Did the coach really say "Osimhen lacks quality in tight spaces, but is hard to catch in open spaces"? Guess that's an area Osimhen can improve. You can interpret his coach's comment https://www.google.com/amp/s/football-italia.net/spalletti-explains-why-inter...

Re: our Kele and Ndidi vs our Osimhen

I think Victor played like a great centre forward yesterday. That’s actually not to say he had a great game. But that he made the most of his opportunities. That’s what the new manager is bringing to his game: as a striker, you have to manage your energy and not make every run and go after every bal...

Re: Cape Verde 1 Nigeria 2 FT

1. That goal by Cape Verde was miles offside. The goalscorer was Moses Simon's man but we were playing a high defensive line. In fact, in that instance, our offside trap worked to perfection (but someone neglected to inform the referee) I don't think so. I believe it was a good call by the linesman...

Re: Which midfielders should make the World cup?

Let's say ANC as it's closer. On that count, barring injury, I think Rohr has made his intentions clear for the middle two: Ndidi Aribo Etebo Onyeka That's it. Ahead of them, depending on how Rohr sets up the front four, there might be a gap on who goes alongside Iwobi but even there, I think the f...

Not really sure that Dennis deserves a call-up because he had 70 good minutes against Aston Villa. He’s had a dreadful time over the last year or so.

Already, Liverpool has refused to release Salah, reports from Nigeria are indicating that all our EPL players may not be released by their clubs. Nacho,Iwobi,Ndidi,Etebo, Troost and Onyek...
