No he is not.

In fact I am confident we would have lost today had Etebo played instead of Aribo.

For all of his industry he will lose or give away the ball in a vital area at least once in the match, and a team like Brazil will punish you all day long.

Etebo is a good player, but needs to be more dynamic, play smart instead of trying to dribble all of the time.

I remember how he killed so many counter attacks vs Argentina at the last WC with his selfishness and inability to keep his head up and move the ball quickly.

Aribo is far superior.

You want to replace a AM with a CM....anyways, in Rohr’s Game plan, Iwobi has a place.....we need more Ogus than anymore attacking talent

they do different things.

Like you said Etebo is a workaholic, but that is the only area he is superior to Aribo, maybe speed as well.


But passing, intelligence, scoring ability, vision will trump being a workaholic any day. Especially when we already have "workaholic" Ndidi. We dont need 2 workaholics at the expense of an intelligent player who isn't so lacking in the "workaholic" department either.

Etebo was An Am when he originally started and he used to make surging runs from midfield to score. Also, there’s nothing wrong with using 3 powerful box to box midfielders because iwobi performance today is unacceptable

Very true, will like to see him match other Africans, guy was class vs Ukraine and Brazil...hopefully we get to see him during the qualifiers, however bobo seems set for International football...super impressed..he never stops running

Its not a radical idea. Etebo came to light at the olympics right behind the forwards. Iwobi def starts, but Etebo could come in for him when he tires to solidify the midfield and still pose an offensive threat (albeit lesser than Iwobi would)

Iwobi will play better under an attacking coach....Rohr is not it. It never occurred to him that we might win....he thinks , Like John12, that this team is average.

SE needs a coach that believes in them like Keshi, Siasia but can also leave the poor management, ego and bribery temptations on the side like Rohr

I will take Aribo over Abraham any day.

In fact if we get Ejaria and Eze those will also be a better acquisition than Abraham IMO.

Let Abraham get his customary 2 or 3 minutes at the end of each game.

Offense or defensive formation did not prevent him from shielding his ball better, making the right passes, losing the ball and having the awareness of a 5 year old in some cases. He was the absolute worst player on that pitch today and no formation led to his diabolical play.

It is unpatriotic or even treasonable to think of altering that arrangement. It is blatant vandalism!
Please remove Iwobi from the equation.

I second this Dammy! He was awful today. Turned over 90% of the ball that was passed to him.

Iwobi is too hit or miss for my liking, if we are serious at competing at the highest level... we need to cap decent attacking players like Ebere or/and Ejaria ASAP, those boys are ready na as it seems off the radar from England.

Now think...what wrong with Ozil at Arsenal? He doesn’t care? He is not talented? Or it just a shiiiit team? Or maybe Ozil don’t fit in Emery’s plan?

Now replace Ozil with Iwobi or anyone that ever played AM for the SE in that sentence and Arsenal for SE.

Mba looks more talented now than Iwobi, is it because he is or is it becos Keshi played good his strengths?

Iwobi is the centre of the team and the SE should be built around him or find someone else but I can guarantee you that whoever that is will find same fate.

Do u think that if Iwobi had 3-4 options to pass the ball to he wouldn’t? What is he shielding the ball from monsters? When is football about shielding the ball? How many times did Neymar with all his talent shield the ball?....

Am busy to continue this lesson....

I said this was Aribo’s match and he pulled it off despite some ppl here telling me that he was average and my judgement is based on one game....lol

I do this for a living not an arm chair coach throwing worthless insults.

Most definitely a plus love the way he gets into the box from midfield :thumbs:
