This young man continues to be a polarizing figure among fans, and due to his tendency to keep things fast and simple, people tend to notice his mistakes more than his far more creditable plays.

Is it not time to give Iwobi the credit he deserves? Watch this game again and see how many key forward passes this young man made today, helping Musa kill his marker time after time. You will still see people refuse to cut him any slack once he makes the next mistake.

Alex Iwobi, take a bow, son! Well played.

He had a good game today. His issue with many SE fans are 1) Laziness 2) turnovers 3) end touch once he settles all 3 he will be a legend

My sense is that Iwobi's best position is as a 2nd striker that plays behind the center forward. He doesnt have the composure to be a playmaker. He's the best we've got now so we'll live with it, but if someone like Iwobi can support a true center forward foil, he'd be devastating.

Oh please! Laziness? Let the people talking about laziness enter the field and show us how energetic they are. These are all well-rehearsed cliches that people have held onto even when the game shows otherwise.

Not saying Iwobi is perfect...no player is. But see how you gave him credit with one line, and used 3 lines to point out his flaws. Do you the same with other players?

Do you hear people ever call etebo or ndidi lazy?? Every player has his strength and weakness and it’s upnto that player to figure out a way to help or mitigate his weakness and become great

Iwobinho baller :thumbs: :thumbs: , can change a game at anytime with a goal, assist, pre-assist thus rohr must keep him in the first 11 until the game is kinda won.

I expected you to come back with Etebo and Ndidi. Have you bothered to criticize them for failure to create chances during the game?

Laziness? :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Apart from Ndidi and Etebo who are machines, this guy probably has the best lungs in the team. He has to work on his finishing and shooting. Laziness is not even remotely one of his problems.

Iwobinho was my MOTM! That assist to Chukwueze was brilliant! He kept things simple today.

Iwobi has improved as the tournament wore on.

Solid performance.

He is getting more and more comfortable being the playmaker and he has cut down on his annoying turnovers.

Iwobinho did okay, but when it comes to the Mom, there is only one shining light and he was in a beast mode throughout... His name is Ndidimadu... What an engine. Reminds me of a benz engine, hardwork and pleasure combined.

True! Playing in the central role has mad him more dangerous than when he was pushed out left in the first game

But if you criticize his pet he will abuse you but he can see the ‘flaws’ in other players.

Right, Oloye. That dude is a different beast. The guy does what he does so well that it's so refreshing. How isnt this guy being fought over by these top clubs? The dude and Etebo make me enjoy watching our SE.

Any one saying anything uncomplimentary about Iwobi is either an embodiment of BADBELLE or ignorant of the game of football. This guy can ball! I love to watch him slice through the defense like Hot Knife through Butter.
