Yet another rational person realizes our goalkeeping situation. Some folks here are even advocating we "try" a goalkeeper at the World Cup! We have friendlies. That's the fora for "trying".Thankfully, the final list to FIFA isn't due until early June. There is still time to address the troubling issue.

I don't think there's anyone who doesn't realize we have a crisis in that department. As far as I know all the goalkeepers we have don't have a lot of experience and we have to "try" one of them except you'd rather have us "try" playing without a goalie.

So unfair of you to pick on Akpeyi yet again... :lol:

Just joking. Way things are going, won’t be surprised if Akpeyi ends up as starter at the WC.

So Agents YoungJohn12 and Uncle 1Naija don't think we are picking on Mr. Akpeyi.

This was over this weekend, and they lost 2-0.
Level of play is probably not higher than the NPFL, but the pitches and training are certainly better.

Uzoho seems extremely reluctant to come out and close up the space in a 1v1 situation (2nd goal, also last week). In this situation, he is the anti-Ezenwa, who gets the rush of blood to the head and rushes out for balls he is not favourite to get.



True but some teams in this division are semi-professional and some players in the division are part-time footballers. I am guessing NPFL is a professional football league and all players in the league are full time footballers.

:lol: :lol: . To be fair though, he looked better than this before he got called up to the first team and had 2 decent la liga games, after which he got his first international call up. Looks like sending him back to the B team affected his confidence.

Thankfully the goalkeeper coach is working with him on a daily basis. He is raw but it’s amazing what confidence can do for a keeper. By the time he has faced Poland, Serbia, D. Congo, England and Chec republic he will be ready..

We should try a backman as a goalie.

BTW, have we had a ball playimg "sweeper" type of goalie before?

The only Keeper I remembered whose ball distribution from the back (long and short balls) was Emma Okalla.

I highly doubt that all players in the third tier of Spanish football aren't full professionals

Sir! his actions of abandoning us in our time of need was treasonous. he abandoned his troops.

Also, I never had a problem with Enyeama, personally, until I saw his hand in the nasty campaign by some of his friends-- people he knows personally to force him down our throats.

Incidentally, when that crook was handed our number 1 shirt in the 2002 world cup, his friends and agents did not tell us that our world cup will be thrown into the pit of hell! They told us to "give him a chance," and we did. Now, these same sycophants are now going after a small child, trying to destroy his image just to elevate their selfish crook client, who was given a chance-- find a club in January-- and he refused! He was more interested in sitting in the stands and making money, rather than sacrificing to play at the world cup for Nigeria. he thinks he can sit in the stands and use his sycophants to force him on us??!! No! Not happening!

Why are we still talking about Enyeama?

Quote:
“Enyeama is not playing at the moment and somebody who is not playing cannot come to the national team. In the beginning, I wanted him but he didn’t come because of the issues in the past so its unlikely if he will return to the team” Rohr said.
When quizzed if the door is closed on the former Super Eagles’ captain, Rohr gave this reply:
“The door is closed for nobody but somebody who is not playing cannot come because it is a rule of selection, especially in this kind of goalkeeping position."

But he was injured when he was approached. How does that amount to abandoning us?

Would you have advocated for a half fit player over a fully fit player in a crucial qualifier?

On his WC debut, two different scenarios. He was arguably the best goalie in the local league. He was playing actively for African champions Enyimba... who won CAF Champions League cups twice. He was not a greenhorn... he had experience albeit at the continental level.

Check out how many games he had kept for Enyimba before being handed the goalkeeping shirt at the WC.

Uzoho is not at his level even then.

You can ask Danfo Driver. He is the one having the monologue.

The rest of us are tracking our GK prospects.

He started rejecting call-ups way before he got injured.

I don't think Enyeama was a regular at Enyimba in 2002 (have to check this).

The best goalies in the league in the early 2000s were Ejide, Sunday Rotimi and Murphy Akanji and by then Enyimba weren't CAF champs league winners yet.

Uzoho has played in La Liga. At that time, Enyeama would never have smelled La Liga. We all remember that Enyeama went to Bolton and FAILED!!!! HE FAILED THE TRIAL, remember? Bolton??!!!

Did I miss something, was he our starting GK at the 2002 WC? I could have sworn there was some seasoned hand named Ike starting for us...

Yes, we are in trouble. And Uzoho is the worst person in the world. Thank you.

Whats the worse that will happen? Afterall, your client was there when we were disgraced in Africa and couldnt qualify for Nations Cups.

I will rather go with Ezenwa than go with Uzoho. 5-Aside goalkeeping is not the same as facing the best in the World. The only thing I see Uzoho has and others don`t is he is "long" :D .
For once I will have to agree with Ayo and bring Aiyenugba back if I were the Coach

Ezenwa has very good reflexes, and he can catch the ball, unlike some of our other keepers. But he needs to learn how he rushes the ball. I am very concern that he will give away cheap penalty kicks.

For the record, my client is Francis Uzoho... :D
