Bad move to promise goals. He has moved from a skill based league to a pace based one. Scottish football is very packey. Hope he can cope with the pace.

What if he has pace nko (which he does)?

Then he'll have to be able to employ skills at pace.

Ayo, as usual you miss the point. Our players are playing at a level too low to attract the Bayern Munich, PSG, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan etc. That is why they are moving to clubs like Benfica, Lokomotiv Moscow, Galatasaray ext. It is from playing at these clubs that they can attract the big clubs. It is difficult for players to move from clubs like Ado Den Haag to Barcelona or Amker Perm to Bayern Munich but it's possible from Benfica or Lokomotiv Moscow as these clubs play in the elite European club competitions.
The next world cup is 4 years away and there is enough time for our players to join the big clubs but for now they are making good transfers on the back of the world cup.


Dey there dey yarn opaks. Players move from River Plate it Santos to Man City or Real Madrid if they are good enough.

Our talent coming through is just not good enough. Did Mikel or Martins ever play for Porto?

Opals again, River Plate and Santos are big clubs in South America and are the equivalent of the likes of Benfica, Lokomotiv Moscow etc.
Martin's started his career with the primavera team of Inter Milan, so it's logical that he started his career with them.
Mikel was the 2nd best player after Messi in the 2005 U20 WC, so he had a stage to attract the big clubs.

Mikel played in Norway.

As pointed out, Mikel's big stage was the u20 wc. Even before then his qualities preceded him. He was already a talent people were talking about and wanted to see the hype.
Norway did not make Mikel. He wasn't even there long.

They are often told what to say before the interviews...that is why all of them appear to say the same thing. The club do have media officers and one of the things they do with young players like this especially coming into a new club is to brief them what the interview would look like and how they are to answer. They are encouraged not to say too much be not to answer questions they are not comfortable with.

Infact, I dare rohr do some crooked thing like that and see what will happen. The nerves of agents and crooks on this side because if coaches were to be inviting players to national team to facilitate their work permit at epl what’s the critical for that invitation? No one dare say some nonsense like that again and national team isn’t a place to facilitate work permit

I agree. He should’ve signed with Bayern.

Not necessarily, I just think a permanent move is always in their best interest. It takes players time to settle down in a new environment , some of them a whole season. I don't see these loan helps....imagine having to moblve to start all over again in another team just about the time you are beginning to settle into the system.


Some of our players could have been helped by our FA.

Invite them for national team duties so as to help them qualify for work permits.

I would have taken Sadiq of Simi...

This is not an option. The NT is not for agents to use in getting their ward work permit.


Au contraire, the US does it for some of their special players who needed national team invites to qualify for Work permits, especially in the UK.

My dear Cellular, to start with it we need to be careful when we make these comparisons while ignoring the real problem we have on the ground. That US does it, does not make it something we should be doing..otherwise what stops every d#$% , tom and harry from ...aghh let me not even go on.

We are still trying to master the democracy they gave us..and now you want to add this one on top of our football issues..mba mba nunu :D


Self defeatist logic. So the federal and state governments should stop awarding scholarships to students because every t, d & h wants one. There are criteria for doing anything that needs to be done in the National Interest. There are certain players with unquestionable potential who we know will become invaluable to us if they continue to develop positively. No stone should be left unturned to help them reach their potential. So, players like that, Onyekuru and Nwakali come to mind, who require assistance to play in the must competitive leagues ought to get it :!:


Cheers.

Didnt fully understand the questions asked but made the effort to give the generic answers expected. Lots of Nollywood, Ini Edo/Emeka Ike eye movements. Best of luck to the lad. As for Gerrard, all the early signs suggest he's going to struggle, were carved apart at will yesterday, how they emerged victorious is a mystery.

@SLK, Gerrard is amassing recruits at a phenomenal rate, with barely enough time to know his best 11. Expect nothing innovative at Ibrox, just much of the same, with a bit more animation from the touchline. Anything less than second and sustained challenge for first, will be seen as a failure. Gerrard has a huge task on his hands.

Dammy,

I am not sure that those "big" clubs have a list of clubs from which they recruit. However, I agree that they are likely to sign a player outright to their main squad when a player performs consistently at the ECL for example or WC. Recently, Bayern signed a 17-year old Ghanaian/Canadian from the MLS but I believe they will send him on loan but a kid like that they will sign even from Amker if they feel there is huge potential. See the story below:

http://www.espn.com/soccer/soccer-transfers/story/3573116/bayern-munich-reach-deal-for-alphonso-davies-with-vancouver-whitecaps-reports

BTW, one of the stunning data that I read recently is that Ghana is #5 and Senegal #9 in providing players (expatriate) to the top division of 31 European countries. This is research data from the CIES Observatory. Note that only Spain, France, The Netherlands, and Germany did better than Ghana. Note the following according to the researchers: ""This reveals the top-level quality of the training programs developed in these countries.." This does not even account for the talented African players who move to lower division just for economic reasons. Those are missing from the data. Meanwhile, our guys rubbish football as played in Africa. IMHO, it is time that some of the narratives about our football begin to change and match realities on the ground.

Sadiq is a humble young man. There's nothing wrong with his command of the English language.

British Home Office grants Sadiq Umar work permit enabling him to play for Glasgow Rangers - See more at: https://goo.gl/LRwF9h

I look forward to seeing Sadiq play. Let us see if he gets his Rangers career off to a bang with a goal in the Europa League on Thursday.

Umar apparently scored today in his first game action for Glasgow Rangers as they thrashed Wigan 3-0.

I think he was initially credited with the goal (from the reports that I saw) but now being recorded as an own goal. I have just viewed the match highlights and it was indeed an own goal. Both Sadiq and his marker went for the ball and the poor Wigan defender nodded into his own net.
