What issue? Ask Odas and danfo they will tell you no way we can look at Enyeama we are good lmao. This is the effing World Cup we are talking about.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Maceo4, we may be having difficulty in the goal keeping area, but I don't think "calling back" Enyeama is the solution, Enyeama is retired

All things being equal, the three keepers would be (in no order): Ikeme, Uzoho, and Enyeama - representing the experienced, the present, and the future. I'd have few worries with any of those guys in goal. The problem we have is that one is clubless, one is very green, and the other is ill.

So we're having to consider back ups in Ezenwa and Akpeyi - one is a certified clown and the other is extremely jittery - you'll know which is which.


What about Nwolokor?

He has done more in Europe than Uzoho.

I have been advocating these 2 players for over a year, especially because of what I considered as the unreasonable invitation of Alampasu over young keepers who were actually developing in Europe..

If Nwolokor plays in the Champions league for Rijeka now, the NFF and all the fans start gushing all over him, yet as a 21 year old Nigerian, he has started for 2 seasons in Europe.

We don't have a GK problem. We just have not invited the best hands outside of Ikeme to camp.

Anyone who thinks a 36 year old Enyeama who was injured, and may be a year removed from competitive football b4 the WC) can meet up to the WC standard is not very knowledgeable about football matters. Ignoring Ikeme and Enyeama, I believe 3 keepers need to be looked at. I have said so on the pages several times.

1) Francis Uzoho - Thankfully he is in camp

2) David Nwolokor - A 21 year old Nigeria has started for 2 seasons in Europe. He has been recalled back to his parent club, a champions league team. Even though he is not starting this season, I'll bet on a 21 year old being able to get back to top physical and game shape over a 56 year old.

3) Femi Thomas - Going out on a limb here, but every time I have seen him, he has looked like a starter for the SE. He was the starter ahead of Ezenwa for the U-20 WC (with Ideye & Co). He played for Enyimba for a long time under some of the wise men of the domestic game (Khadiri Ikhana and Okey Emordi). Even in the recent loss of Rivers Utd to the Moroccan side, he was excellent and only beaten by 2 deflected goals. His domestic career track is better than Ezenwa, and he was ahead of him in the U-20s. Why is he not invited.
Sunset might help out here as he has the 411 on the domestic league. Thomas has been drifted a bit over the last year as he followed Ikhana to Pillars and left after Ikhana resigned.

Put Uzoho, Ezenwa, Nwolokor and Thomas in camp and select the best 3.

For you Vince fans, let them add him as well. I'm sure the 4 keepers above will beat him hands down.

Truetalk, thanks a lot - my friend - for putting these Enyeama's fans or agents in their appropriate positions. Enyeama is retired, so we don't need him. We need to invite other keepers to slug it out (competition), pick the best three and go from there

Happy to defer to your judgement as I haven't seen him play.

Sorry, but facts.


But you were defending Akpeyi a few days ago.

Well I'll take a recovered Ikeme, Uzoho, Nwolokor and Thomas over Enyeama.

It is not up to either one of us though.

Let them go to camp and let the coaching crew decide based on what they see.

Y'all can say I'm hating on Vince but based on what the coaching crew are saying, I don't think he goes to Russia.

Just today they repeated the terms.

Find a club, publicly unretire, and state your willingness to come back to camp without making any demands or stating conditions.

All of that does not matter to me. My very informed opinion is that he is not one of the best 3 keepers available to Nigeria at this point.

:agree: :agree: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

[1] My beef with Rohr over this goalkeeping matter is that he is doing everything within his power to make the situation worse

[2] Everyone knows that Akpeyi and Ezenwa are not up to the job and the emphasis is on finding someone better but alas, Rohr simply cannot let go of the two of them

[3] As fortune would have it, Francis Uzoho came through at Deportivo La Coruna and all Rohr had to do was capitalise on this

[4] Those of you who know how football works know that when a goalkeeper performs well at international level, it put pressure on his club. They then become hard-pressed to drop him

[5] Uzoho is fighting for the number one shirt at Deportivo La Coruna with Romanian international Costel Pantilimon

[6] Romania are well aware of this and started Pantilimon in both of their friendlies over the last week. He manned goal in yesterday's 3-0 loss to The Netherlands

[7] Pantilimon also manned goal for Romania when they beat Turkey on November 9. He came off in the 71st minute when the game was already secure with the coach trying out Florin Constantin of Steaua București, who was making his debut

[8] Those of you who have been following England must remember how the English footballing establishment pulled out all the stops to get Joe Hart a club when he was dropped by Manchester City. England kept playing him even when he was not featuring for his club

[9] Hart was sent on loan to Torino and is now on loan at West Ham. England have kept playing him all through in the hope that it will attract clubs

[10] Rohr cannot justify playing Ezenwa or Akpeyi ahead of Uzoho in the last two games. Just imagine if he had played in both matches and kept clean sheets, putting in wonderful performances. He would probably have made the number one shirt at Deportivo his own and that would have made him a sure bet for the Eagles after a great season
