Cockney Eagles is funny. I think we've already gone that way starting with people like Keshi and Oliseh capping a bunch of diaspora kids.

The person told me that its a term used for people of lower class. When I googled it, this came up:

Quote:
Originally a pejorative term applied to all city-dwellers

A Cockney is a Londoner, the original Cockneys are East Londoners and any Londoner that can hear the Bow bells ring there’s nothing derogatory about that.


You definition is correct. However, it is also correct that it was originally a pejorative term. You may want to be called a cockney. But not everyone wants to be.

what a very race baiting thread


The use of the word "cockney" in my thread is clearly tongue-in-cheek to mean our British born talents. It is NOT a racial or ethnic identifier. Tons of Nigerians have kids born in London. Igbo, Hausa, Efik, or whatever, they are all "cockney"
I'm not sure why you choose to focus on irrational arguments about ethnicity and miss the point of the thread. Our most viable talents are the ones trained in foreign academies. The time has comes to embrace that fully.

Is there a research or study to support this assertion? Any data to back this your conclusion?

If I am not mistaken, Yekini was highest goal scorer in Europe. When did an English player achieve that?

Nothing formal obviously.
But note the word 'viable' which I assume he chose carefully and deliberately.
Anecdotal evidence suggests he has a point worth debating.

He is talking about those ultimately making it through to the full SE team, not the age-grade teams.
Look at the histories of the players in the current squad. Its a snapshot and supports his assertion.

It still boils down to our dysfunctional youth development system.

You are seriously mistaken.
He was a top goalscorer, not 'the' top or 'highest' goalscorer. :idea:

Is it because the current NFF Chairman is a 'WOWO' who believed that Oyinbo na Oyinbo?

On what basis is the claim that 'OUR MOST VIABLE TALENTS ARE TRAINED IN FOREIGN ACADEMIES'?

Who are the 'most viable talents' to start with? What is the selection criteria for that group?

Makes me remember the discussion about Nigerian youth players not making it big because they are age cheats!

Lets cut out the emotion and personality politics if we really want a mature debate.

If you choose to blame one man for the state of our youth development, then feel free.
But you won't be taken seriously.

So, as things stand today...where are the players most 'viable' for the full SE getting their football education?
And if, as you seem to be insisting, they are in Nigeria and are being ignored because of WOWOism, then please name such players that should be in the SE camp as we speak.

And to help you out, you can take a look at our U23 national team which is full of Nigeria-groomed players. Kindly name those of them that should be displacing the allegedly 'WOWO-enabled' current SE players.

After all, majority of the SE squad is under 25 to the point that with a few exceptions, it could even be an U23 squad itself. :idea:

Like Obong pointed out, which was ignored because it did not fit the narrative. Nigeria best player in the World Cup was Etebo. Nigeria best player in AFcon was Ndidi and they both started their career in Nigeria. That empirical evidence.

It's too early to make the statement that Nigeria's most viable talents are the foreign-groomed (sample is too small). Maybe in 15 years time we can make a better assessment but as for now evidence shows that Nigeria's best talents are those that started their footballing education in Nigeria.

The best players should play period! I don't care whether they are cockney or Wawa Eagles.

It's obvious that the likes of Iwobi, Aina, Aribo and if they choose to play for Naija, Ejaria, Tomori and Lookman are better than 90% of players raised in Nigeria. We haven't even mentioned the Bavarian Dutch and German youngsters like Okoye, Ebuehi etc.

Competition is never a bad thing. A player afraid of competition should go and play ludo.

A look at the academies of the major teams in England will shock some of you. Damunk and I have been saying this for Donkey years.

If you are one of those that prefer Ramon Azeez, Ogu, Awoniyi, Kele and Nwakwali simply for sentimental reasons, prepare to not support the SE for the foreseeable future. Enough of these mediocre guys who have been having it easy for years.

Firstly, point of correction....
I was the one that pointed out Etebo's stats as being the "best" IN AFCON (not in the WC), so your political flavouring on 'fitting or not fitting the narrative' is void.
You can check the recent archives.
I am not sure where you or Obong got the memo that Etebo was the "best" in the WC and Ndidi the "best" in AFCON.
On what basis? Kindly provide a link so we can all benefit.
I have no problem being corrected.

Even if...(and its a big 'if') you and Obong are correct, it does not negate the fact that the majority of our squad have received their football education abroad.
Like I said, suggest local players that are being unjustifiably left out.
Fit your narrative with facts.
It shouldn't be hard.
