There would have been questions asked also. The main issue for me is how did he perform in training and when he played for the SE. Some players are talented but haven't been so lucky with their club football and a coach is allowed to have a look at such players. My dislike for Keshi's methods is not secret. I think he employed this strategy too often to the detriment of the team.

You be my boss and I tend to agree with majority of your points... but this your argument here is seriously flawed bro. Sometimes it's not a bad look on yourself or your ego to accept you are out of line with facts and logic, instead of dribbling yourself into cul-de-sacs in the name of proving a point.
Bros, na opinion way I get, nothing more.

I don't think there's any credible football reason why Maduka was giving the Maduka treatment.

It is very okay to invite him for none football reason. I have stated as much.

We, the genuine fans, are happy that the weakest department in the SE is being strengthened.
Chief, I know you are a genuine fan.

So excuse us immitation fans who just ask for a clear concise criteria for inviting lower rung players.

Rohr imsef tok say for a local player to be invited and get some minutes, he MUST be a lot better than the foriegn pros... not marginally better, but a lot better.

Some of you might be looking at Maduka's upside, as in he is young and will improve... but the same Rohr carried players to the WC that he had no intentions of using after the World Cup.

Us immitation fans just want to know his mindset so we can keep him accountable...

And not when tailor tear cloth na new style... but for you original authentic fans, when Obioma tear cloth, he must replace your material.

That´s what they accuse Keshi of doing.....

Rohr is a man of integrity, he wouldn´t do what you allege. Rohr drop players after the WC, no Rohr will do no such thing.

At least Rohr did not carry players he had no intention of using during the WC to Russia!

Not all players in WC squads remain relevant after the WC. A new cycle starts after the WC and it's normal that some players are discarded and new ones brought in. An example is England where players like Young, Cahill and Vardy weren't called up after the 2018 WC.

Why discard Bryan Idowu when an upgrade in Jamilu Collins is discovered? Why discard Simy for Osimhen?
It's obvious you just like arguing and looking for "equalisers" where they match up or not!
That's why I feel sorry for anyone who gets into a discussion with you. You must always have the last word, whether it makes sense or not!

I like your tactics....

First, dodge the topic. :lol:

Second, narrow the discussion to me. :thumbs:

Third, insult me. :rotf:

Fourth, hope I would respond with insults :D

Fifth, Mods locks the thread and it buried :biggrin:

Lastly, I am mod, I take blows without retaliation :taunt: :taunt:

On seeing the light. Yes, One rule for Keshi (set and expect high standards), another for Rohr (lower the bar to the barest minimum and make excuses).

You called Keshi names for discarding players after the WC.

You made excuses for Rohr, when Rohr discarded players after the WC.

Hypocrisy.

I'm not going to discuss Keshi again. He's a legend of Nigerian football and I will not tarnish his legacy.
You can read whatever meaning suits you to my comments and if you feel insulted, it was not my intention.
I will not be drawn into going round in circles.

Exactly Bro! Imagine the ‘detriment’ the team suffered by WINNING the ANC and making the WC round of 16... :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Its a disingenuous, dishonest argument used to denigrate those who support Rohr, not because of his race but because of what he is achieving and how he is trying to achieve it.

I could equally play the reverse race card to favour my argument, especially when the pivot of the debate is around Rohr and his 'German boy" Maduka AND the fact that you seem to have absolutely no problem with invitations extended to similar youth 'keepers Alampasu and Uzoho - our very own 'Nigerian' boys. But race is IRRELEVANT and so you guys should stop giving it mileage.

This discussion shouldn't be about cheap point-scoring.
Its the 'WOWO' smear in disguise which just doesn't apply to any of us in a serious discussion such as this.
Bro, you can classify it however you wish so long classify it is as FACTUAL...
The reality is that similar acts by indigenous coaches is precipitously tagged as corrupt.

He just invites players for matches like Bulgarian dude who (according to YOU) he has no intention of using... :lol:

BTW, how many games did Joel Obi, John Ogu, Awaziem, Onazi (let’s leave out the reserve GKs) play at the Russia WC?!

Boss there are many better examples to use don’t know why they are so focused on Maduka who is actually justifying Rohr belief in him...how can the Viv Solomon guy get an invite before Ejuke?

That ICs have not been tagged corrupt for speculative callups by some folks now rationalizing Rohr’s?

Please let’s have an HONEST discourse instead of emotive sophistry...
The thing about mixed-race is not being RATIONALLY adjudged as anti-black or anti-white. Stick to FACTS!

Oh please.
Look who's talking about sophistry. :rotf:
Sophistry my left foot.

When 'Lagerback' and 'Betty' were ridiculed on this board for their poor performance (and even believed to have been engaged in underhand deals) was it because we suddenly forgot they were white?

Some of us are not willing to be drawn into 'he said, she said'-style allegations of corruption and 'dropology' against some of our past coaches. It ain't gonna happen.

Its not as if it isn't all out there in abundance and the false equivalence being used to flog the matter (as you have typically done in the red highlighted part of your post by way of example) isn't gonna work.
That's a dead horse - excuse the pun.

As for what you are on about wrt 'mixed race', you might have to be kind enough to clarify, cos its not clear.
