You guys never learn. I remember watching Uchebo on youtube and drooling...until...as they say the rest is history. People were hyping Aina, i have watched the guy a couple of times and i am wondering if i am watching another Aina. This time last year it was Ejaria..like typical english product he has not been able to navigate or find the gear to the next level. And please dont get me started on the Aibee noise. I watched Tammy last friday..all i saw was a decent player at a level that cannot be said to be the top. Someone is already calling him the best striker we've got...wao! If i may ask on what basis? Banging goals at the top of EPL or Nationwide? Yes we can invite him since he plays regularly but be wary of english products...they have no second level value.
Look at the pathetic state of Aibee at Bournemouth his second level is the bench....
You make a major logical mistake.
The fact that wastepipes have been hyped on CE does not mean that anybody who is praised here turns out to be useless.
Some players are hyped and disappear soon after and some become major hits.
I can spot your deviation against everything english cleary as you smell colo-mentality almost everywhere.
To me this is much more a minority compex than those who are open minded for potential players from wherever they come from or where they were raised.
Furthermore it is means an insult to deprecatingly call boys like Tammy or Aina English without further knowing their cultural background.
Some of these boys are very proud on their Nigerian heritage and to me their English background does not make they less suitable and worthy to wear the GWG than our "native" players.

Tammy Abraham will soon light up the EPL - you can take that to the bank.
Hopefully it won't be too late than as England might be faster to spot his potential.
Dude if you do not understand what i mean by calling them english product, no point trying to read anything or analyse anything into it. These were brought up and raised in the english football system....keyword here is football. I am not anti british, but i am wary of their footballing culture and until the products prove me wrong i stick to my gun. I started my arguement by using Uchebo, yet you ignore that bit.
I also said i believe he has potentials but until he takes it to the next level ,i am not buying into any hype. Now where did that say i have ruled hm out? Or is it too much to ask for a player aspiring to play for Nigeria that such should rise to the next level by playing at the top?
Abeg leave me oh...i am not buying into anymore youtube sales pitch....
By the way as much as i bash the half baked english product, i also acknowledge the few exceptions..the likes of Ashley Cole, Terry, Lampard, Gerrald, Rio, Sol to mention a few....but most of them generally do not have gear 2. Especially when asked to play in an environment where football is not about running,, crosses and headers alone..where they are expected to retain control in tight places, be patient and think more.
Biko when he starts to light up the place like Rashford(he is still subject to the same syndrome though), then you guys can start making the kind of noise that i am hearing on this thread.
All i am saying is, just say that he has potentials, i will have no problem with that, but to start waxing the nursey rhymes he is the best striker we have...now that is over the top hype.
