Since Idowu is Russian citizen are we sure Ukraine wont seize him in return for Russian annex of Crimea :taunt: :taunt:

With the injury to Ebuehi and Agu changing his mind, Idowu was a good choice.

I would have gone for Azuibuike instead of Esiti.

The Esiti i watched 2 seasons ago was not polished, not a SE MFer. I'm hoping he has improved else you guys will be very disappointed.

I find hard to understand why some fans consider Brian Idowu to be a bad player? He scored on his debut against Argentina. I even think he should have made the last nations cup squad. Collins maybe first choice for now but I think he could have featured on left while Collins was out injured with Aina on the right his more natural position. I don’t even understand why Aina was left out when Collins returned from injury and Rohr used a makeshift center back as a right full back. The make shift CB is and was a liability in defence.

I look forward to seeing him in he upcoming friendly.

And how “polished” was the Ndidi you watched 2/3 seasons ago?! :blink:

Of course, not sure whatever the nebulous term “polished” means in this context, but Esiti has always played that disrupter role to near-perfection, and if not for Gent’s intransigence would have been in La Liga last season (with Gent reneging after a deal had been struck with Levante).

We dont need slow and one dimensional midfield players for heavens sake.


The same Kingsley Michael that played at the U20 world cup and was very poor? Some of you guys think this is table soccer.

Esiti played 88 games over the past 3 seasons in Belgium...
The same league Rohr sourced many SE players (Simon, Osimhen, Kalu, etc.).

Interesting that you effectively accuse Rohr of inviting him only after he “steps down”! :lol:

Ndidi played the full 90mins vs Bournemouth yesterday.
So how injured is he?

Rohr has already given him permission to miss the Ukraine game, according to reports.

Okay, it must be just to give him a rest.

Good. Other players need to be tried in that role. Ndidi is too error prone and not a natural DM.

Azubuike is getting a raw deal. He should have been next can off the rank after Mikel retired.

idowu isn't as bad as you guys make him look. defensively, he is more solid at LB than aina, ebuehi but people dont judge footballers by their number 1 duty anymore. they just want guys attacking relentlessly
