Wait o, you mean Shearer based his hypothesis on atching the same team you claimed is not fit and in no shape to face the big guns in the WC :blink: :dream: Now an Oyinbo has endorsed Rohr's team and tactics and all of a sudden you are singing a new tune..... talk about flip flopping

Give me a break... The number of times you said the team that qualified isn't good enough to participate in the world cup. So what exactly has changed?


Any human being with an average IQ can decipher that a lot changed at halftime in the game against Argentina with the three substitutions. I hope I am not being inhumane here by attacking a fellow human being who has learning difficulties and mental health challenges here because you clearly have a mental capability lower than they of 95% of the human race of you cannot figure out that things have changed and will change furthermore.

I will refrain from responding to you as it appears that you are genuinely mentally disabled, so attacking you would be a sin against Mother Nature. My advice is just read threads from now on and do not post.

This guy, Idowu was the only player who wasn't part of the qualifying team, all the rest of the subs were part of the qualifying team which you seem to want to overhaul.

It's not uncommon for people to resort to name calling when called out. It's quite churlish. No need to muddy the waters Mr Akinfe. As pointed out you harped on for ages about how the current squad wasn't good enough for Russia. All of a sudden, Shearer talks up the team and you are now a believer. Go back and read the 10 point tripe you put up on owngoal on the team. What changed all of a sudden...?

Rohr should have played the following in qualifiers in my opinion:

Francis Uzoho
Tyronne Ebuehi
Brian Idowu
Sam Awaziem
Kelechi Nwakali
Kayode Olanrewaju
Victor Osimhen
Henry Onyekuru
Taiwo Awoniyi
Denis Bonaventure
Cyrial Dessers

I mentioned here how Switzerland’s coach was brave enough to give two youngsters their competitive debuts during their World Cup Play-off against Northern Ireland. Many of these so-called “new players” should have been tried and tested veterans by now!

There are managers like you in my company who make statements like 'should have'. It is when they are now on the executing side that they realise a few things. Rohr has his game plan - let him execute his plan in peace. Haba!! Dont we learn? They can prepare for 2022 World Cup.

Indeed he was useful as a PLAYER but he is useless in off-the-pitch roles. The mistake you are making is that you underplay the off-the-pitch aspect of football. Shearer was useless as a MANAGER, TACTICIAN. Infact I am surprised Newcastle didnt hire him as a scout or club ambassador. The only thing he does is a commentator and we see how Gary (solid commentator) did when he was put in a management role.

At some point in our football life as a nation we have to be able to rightfully sit at the table with the best in the world. We can't be living as underdogs for ever.

It is either we want respect or we don't.
All this not wanting recognition indicates we are not yet convinced we are qualified to be invited to the party. Its like we want to sneak in unnoticed and then wreak havoc like an opportunistic thief.

Yes, there might be an advantage to that approach but it works both ways. Earning respect means that teams do not jump on you like some prostitute, but would rather give you a chance to introduce yourself and see what you can do. Because if they jump on you, the fear is that you just might give them a dirty slap. So they won't.

But if that respect you are given proves to be undeserved, they will Harvey Weinstein you with no comebacks.

So which one do we want? :idea:

... all of the above as stated by you - Damunk - depending on the situation and tactical plans

Alan Shearer did a documentary for the BBC last week about ex-footballers getting dementia from heading the ball too often. He said he was worried about the effect that years of heading the ball might have had on his mental health.

Hi all at CE
I'm missing you all, well, some of you - lets be honest some of you are just pricks :boo:
Anywayz, I'm having a lovely time with bombs dropping everywhere around me.
The locals cannot stop staring at me, not sure whether it's my blackness or they love the House of Saudi T Shirt I'm rocking.
I met some guys earlier, they said they are IS, I didn't want to sound ignorant and ask them what that means but I just take it to mean Islam. They asked me if I was having a good time, I told them I'm feeling very gay right now. You'd think they'd be happy for me being happy in their country.

Anywayz, how are you guys coping with Ayo since the draw? How many threads has he opened? I'm not coming back until a day before our opening match.
I'll be heading across to Saudi Arabia and Iran on a cycle, naked and singing George Bush'e praise.

I feel sorry for you all and what you're going through with Ayo. You should have been here with me - The safest place right now.

Until my next postcard - PS, keep Ayo there with you.


This your postcard does not meet CE standard.
Please adopt the 10-point format.

Thanks. :thumb:

There is more to it than that extreme view.

As long as you are well prepared, you don't have to worry about teams jumping on you, because if they try it, you will crush them. See Brazil - Germany 1-7. So if any team wants to jump on you thinking you are a pushover, as long as you have prepared well and done your homework, that is 100% their problem.

I prefer to earn our respect on the green grass, by making the quarter finals or better. Too much praise and "respect" now can get to the boys' heads and they could start believing their own hype, and stop being concentrated 100% and werking 'ard on the field for each other. WC 1998 comes to mind.

Damunk wrote:

If the respect proves to be undeserved, then you did not prepare properly and are in trouble anyway, respect or no respect. Moral of the story is, if you have prepared well and done your homework, the respect of other teams is not as relevant.

I know what I don't want. Mental strength comes from knowing that you have prepared to the best of your ability, not from other people's "respect", because that "respect" can be withdrawn :lol: at the convenience of the giver. I don't want "respect" that does more harm than good. I know awa pipul's psyche.

I saw it and even though Shearer was in the studio, it was not Shearer that made the predictions you have listed. It was John Bennet and Tim Vickery that tipped Croatia and Nigeria to go through from the group.

Alan Shearer did a documentary for the BBC last week about ex-footballers getting dementia from heading the ball too often. He said he was worried about the effect that years of heading the ball might have had on his mental health.


I thought it would have been a very low blow to bring this up.

Wait o, you mean Shearer based his hypothesis on atching the same team you claimed is not fit and in no shape to face the big guns in the WC :blink: :dream: Now an Oyinbo has endorsed Rohr's team and tactics and all of a sudden you are singing a new tune..... talk about flip flopping

Don't forget that Ayo was promoting Bryan Robson on CE as a viable option to coach SE some years ago. Bryan Robson o :lol: :lol: :lol: Ayo eeeehhhh! :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
