Re: Goal Oshimen

The first chance came to him very early in the game - possibly his 2nd touch of the ball. It would be nice if he scored with every clear chance. But no striker on earth does that. Composure in front of goal comes with experience.

Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

You stopped making sense many posts ago. One one hand, you seem aware that a club can pay big money for a player and he still NOT be good enough. On the other, you keep mentioning Victor's price tag as proof of quality. On one hand Victor isn't scoring as much because he isn't been fed by KBD, but ...

^^^ I don't even know why I keep responding, but let me humor you just ONE LAST time... So you're the coach of a soccer team and and your scout comes to you and says "coach, we have a player for you. He is 28, and has been to 2 world cups. He started in Belgium and scored 33 goals as a 16yr ol...

Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

Comparing Osimhen to Lukaku is utter madness. What Lukaku was doing at 22, Osimhen can't even dream about. I'm Nigerian like you, but I don't lie to myself. You can't be serious! What was Lukaku doing at 22? He was finally shipped off to Everton after failing to make the grade at Chelsea with loan ...

Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

Osimhen played very well yesterday despite the service being poor. For those talking about control in tight spaces, Lukaku that can't trap a bag of cement is now considered one of the best strikers in the world. Osimhen is a better player than him, just less experienced. If he works hard, he will be...

Re: Our Osimhen vs Udinese (1.45pm)

I noticed that his teammates didn't really celebrate his goals against Leicester. Hmmmmmmm They did. The first one, he ran to the centre circle b/c he was keen to restart that game as it was 2-1. The 2nd one, he ran into the crowd and they chased after him. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVtOmZ0g8iE

Shirt pulling is a yellow unless it was done to stop a clear goal-scoring opportunity.
