Re: Arsenal offer Leicester Xhaka and £40m for Ndidi


Ndidi is staying in London/England for the foreseeable future... He is going to school there to get a degree in business. Its very unlikely he will drop his studies in England for a move to Barca. He may just prefer a move to one of the bigger English teams

Re: OSIMHEN HANGS!

Puts Lille ahead in the League Cup game... But looks like he might come off, looks dizzy. I have not seen the goal but I am guessing it may not be a Tap -in or ball fell into his lap... which would explain his dizziness. He was probably just disoriented because he scored the type of goal he was not...

INEHACHO IS NOW BETTER THAN BEFORE

He is a better player today than he has ever been. Great ball control, fantastic pace, great awareness, excellent team play...all around fantastic play. This Brendan Roger is a real coach. I never real thought much of him when he coached Liverpool years ago, but now I think he is the man. Whoever i...

WHY DOESNT ASERNAL HIRE NUNO ESPIRITO( Wolves Coach)?

If this guys is white, he would already be coaching one of the top 12 teams in the world. Its outrageous what's going on... The type of results and records he has is Unbelievable for a low level team like Wolves.

Re: WHY AM I SKEPTICAL OF OSIMHEN'S TALENT ?

No need to insult Jackal, the man wanted Osimeh to surprise him, to prove him wrong on the basis of evaluation, Osimeh is doing that to the benefit of everyone. It is a win win all. For me Osimhen is a better playmaker than he is a striker....He is still developing as a striker..he is not there yet...

Re: 2019 HAS BEEN A TERRIBLE YEAR FOR NIGERIAN FOOTBALL

our mens team definitely put a performance that can be applauded. 3rd place from failing to qualify twice is a progress Well, that sums up for me how low we have fallen. Going from when we considered Qualification our "birth right" to thinking of qualification to CHAN "progress"...

Re: 2019 HAS BEEN A TERRIBLE YEAR FOR NIGERIAN FOOTBALL

In spite of the above, I’m not sure 2019 has been a terrible year. We end the year with a very promising super eagles squad. We have had success in the past at junior and Olympic level. Of course more is better, but I think we would all agree that progress at the senior level is the ultimate goal -...
