Re: The Hangers (21/22) - Match Week 2

Umar Sadiq with a brace so far in a league game for Almeria at the end of halftime. Could have had a hat trick, but he missed a penalty. He may score more before the game ends.

Re: PETER RUFAI: Give SE Goalkeepers Equal Opportunities.....

Okoye and Uzoho are our best two keepers, while Akpeyi earned the #3 spot cause of his consistency at club level. Rohr, however, needs to invite Adebayo Adeleye, who is based in Israel. Also many believe Noble and Ezenwa are not the best goalies in the NPFL.

Re: our Kele and Ndidi vs our Osimhen

No he should not. IMO, AM is not his best position. He's a good passer, but doesn't look comfortable running with the ball and doesn't have the pace of an ideal AM. He can drop deep occasionally and pick out passes, but he's at his best when he's in the box. Kele is a deadly finisher/poacher. He nee...

Re: our Kele and Ndidi vs our Osimhen

He was playing well in the first half. Running down the channels excellently and holding up the ball well. The only thing lacking was his finishing as he was taking wild/hurried shots. He's the most complete striker we have because of his ability to run the channels, pass, and hold up the ball. His ...

Re: our Kele and Ndidi vs our Osimhen

I like the fact that Osimhen is being more confident and taking more shots. I think he's finding a good balance on when to pass and when to shoot. He was rushing his shots in the first half, but settled down in the second.

Re: our Kele and Ndidi vs our Osimhen

Osimhen is playing well. His strength is running down the flanks/channels. He just needs to work on his runs down the middle to be more complete and be more composed in the box. That last miss was a bad one

All 3 of our boys are playing well so far:

Good move by Osimhen there to find space, but he scuffed his shot. Bad tackle there by Ndidi on Anguissa.Desrved the yellow card

Re: Which midfielders should make the World cup?

Another midfielder that has started the season well is Watford loanee Tom Dele-Bashiru. Not saying he will make a world cup squad, but he's one to keep an eye on. He scored two goals for Reading in the Championship yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0zSHllmYWg The second goal he scored was ...

Re: Cape Verde 1 Nigeria 2

With the number of wingers and forwards we have, it's really hard to justify Musa's continuous invitations. I guess it's all about getting Musa over a 100 caps now.

Re: Cape Verde 1 Nigeria 1

That Cape Verde player should be flogged by his team mates for that own goal. Kudos to Onyekuru for putting a little pressure on the guy which led to the horrendous error.

Re: Nigeria v Cape Verde Starting 11

I agree it looks like a 4-4-2, which could make our team a little unbalanced. 4-4-2 only works if one of the front two is committed to dropping deep to play the number 10 role periodically, and also works better when you have two legitimate box to box central midfielders. Think a 3-5-2 or 4-3-1-2 wo...

Re: There is only one way we can line-up against Cape Verde

If Osimhen and Simon are eligible, this would be my lineup (4-2-3-1): Osimhen Simon Ejuke. Kalu Shehu Bonke Sanusi Omeruo Awazeim Aina Okoye This is how I think Rohr will play (4-4-2): Osimhen Onuachu Simon. Bonke. Shehu. Musa. Sanusi. Omeruo. Awazeim. Aina Okoye
