I dont know why you guys are responding like this. It seems you dont know Nigerians.

Enyeama was 10th choice goalkeeper at Lille, posting videos of empty training and they wanted him to go to the world cup as the first choice. Uzoho is going out on loan to get match fitness and sharpness for the Nations Cup and they want him out of the team.

Please, read the above and try to analyze both sentences.

Most people will be befuddled. However, if you truly know Nigerians to the core, you will just smile.

I can see no one cares about Joel Obi :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Anyways, this is a step UP, going from playing 2nd/3rd division footie to playing 1st division abi? Plus Shehu was a starter for SE playing in the same Cyprus, so nothing spoil...

Going to excuse Uzoho completely? Didn't nobody tell him to hold off on getting married to avoid adding fuel to the fire???

That is, assuming your theory is correct...

On Obi...said before that this boy's body is probably not suited for football. His injury rate is astounding

Develop the domestic league or start the W/African regional league. I have provided templates for both.

West African league is unrealistic. The cost of traveling to games will be beyond most teams


The domestic league is indicative of the local economy, readily available superior option of European leagues st a fraction of the cost and minimum travel.

Other conditions have to be conducive for our league to develop. It will never happen in isolation


THANKS FOR RESPONDING, AND...


...you are correct to say transportation cost will be high. But so will be salaries, medical, lodging, facilities, office operations, etc. They all come under "cost of doing business". If the league is making money, it won't matter. And the way I envisage it, a well-planned and managed W. African the league will make money. From stadiums that are sold out weekly because of quality of play and rivalries; from tv subscription, sponsorship and merchandizing. None of these is practiced today.

The domestic league is in shambles because no one has sat down to craft a workable league. How, for example, do you have a league with 28 teams? A lot of work needs to be done obviously. They can start with a limited number of teams, say 12 - 14, located in viable locations, fully privatized, each owned by rich individuals or consortiums (corporations a possibility), provide functional safe and secure facilities, doing real marketing, introducing merchandizing and tv, bringing back Nigeria's best players leading to a successful league which will relegate the European leagues to second place. But this will require work.

Having said that, allow me to caution against being too quick to dismiss ideas because at first glance they seem imperfect. If the much-desired progress is to be made in Nigeria and Africa, it's going start by accepting promising ideas that are not necessarily perfect when initially presented. By constantly modifying and tweaking them they become more and more acceptable. The things people admire in the developed world were not perfect on Day 1 and they continue to get worked on even today.

That's a backward mover regardless of his age. It would have been even better if moved to the Nigerian league. Playing time Cyprus will not improve him one bit. This move is like yemibrassiere moving from McDonald as a fryer person to Walmart as a cashier!

Totally confused by the negativity of this thread.

I remember watching Enyeama 18 years ago and marvelling at both the raw talent and the capacity for self-destruction. Like most goalkeepers, he took his time, got the games in and eventually become one of the world’s top keepers.

Uzoho is 20. Give him time. And let him do whatever it takes to get playing time.

If the guy is good enough, nothing anyone says about him would hinder his progress. He's not the first or last player to be criticized.

Bottom-line is if he failed to deliver on the field then that's largely on him.

I don't think it's really about whether he's mediocre; it's probably more about if he's the best option we have.

LMAOO @ "ruin your weekend." Never forget: I ruined your summer (2018) and I ruined Enyeama's summer (2018) and future plans! :lol:

Unfortunately, for you, Enyeama is yesterday's man. No one thinks about him these days.

Very dissapointing for our #1 goalkeeper.

We need to be looking at other options.

Oh well


Nosa Igiebor is playing for the same team...........................the team got some CL 'pedigree'.

Quote:
Champions League 2008–09
Main article: 2008–09 Anorthosis Famagusta F.C. season

After winning the domestic league 2007–08, Anorthosis qualified for the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League Group Stage, over-running Armenian Champions FC Pyunik, Austrian Champions Rapid Wien and Greek Champions Olympiacos in the qualifying rounds. :thumbs: :thumbs:

This allowed the team to qualify for the Group Stage of the Champions League, the first time for a Cypriot team.
In the group stage, they earned their first point following a 0-0[5] away draw with Werder Bremen, then got their first win beating Panathinaikos FC 3-1[6] while Hawar Mulla Mohammed became the first Iraqi player to score in the UEFA Champions League, although they lost to Inter Milan 1-0[7] at San Siro, they drew 3-3 in GSP Stadium. In their fifth Champions League game, Anorthosis had a chance to make it to the knock-out stage if they would have won against Werder Bremen. Anorthosis went up 2-0, but in the second half Diego made the score 2-1, and minutes before the match ended, Hugo Almeida managed to equalise for Bremen, and the match finished 2-2. Anorthosis still had a chance to get into the knock-out stage in the final match against Panathinaikos if they would have won. However, during the last game they lost 1-0 away to Panathinaikos. Inter (who had already qualified for the next stage) lost 2-1 to Bremen, meaning that Anorthosis finished fourth – missing out on a consolation UEFA Cup place.

Not even close to it. If we set sentiments aside and applied a little logic, I don’t see how anyone can be so optimistic about someone who conceded a ton of goals leading up to the World Cup when the man who got us through the qualifiers hardly conceded. The one goal that got past him would have been a hard sell for any of the worlds top goalies. Abeg, let’s get real :!:

What kind of twisted logic is this? Uzoho concede vs the best teams in the world not Zambia and Algeria.

We went through 3 keepers during WC qualifying from Ikeme to Akpeyi to Ezenwa. The last two didn’t really inspire confidence and they all conceded...Ikeme vs Zambia, Ezenwa conceded in 2 of the four games he played (Cameroon and Algeria return legs). Akpeyi conceded in the one WCQ game he played against Algeria, also 2 in the ANC qualifier vs South Africa, one in the first half vs Argentina in the friendly which Uzoho took over and kept a clean sheet in the second half. I don’t know how we can say the alternatives are clearly better than Uzoho given these facts. One can argue he has the biggest upside sha, but none of them is ideal or clearly the favorite.
