Re: Congratulations to CE's Yujam. First Afcon win

Gambia beats Mauritania :clap: Yujam is now a fully-fledged American citizen. No more Gambia for him. Jealousy is not good. Anyway, arguably, Yujam's boys are one draw away from the round of 16 :clap: Yujam is first class. Above reproach. Just messing with him. A gentleman. It seems like every coun...

Re: Please What is eguavoen Target??

Personally, I don’t GAF about a team performance I.e attacking football, dribbling etc. when I am judging my players or coaches. The metric of consideration is “Result” “contractual target” “end product”. This made me to ask a question 1) What is eguavoen Written contractual target? Baba Rohr met a...

Re: Will EGU empty Bench? ... Uzoho, Ebuehi, & Ndah ... Get ready!

As I understand it, head to head is used as the tie breaker for this AFCON...If correct, Nigeria has finished first in the group with a game to spare! Given the above, shouldn't Egu get it over with an empty the bench?.....See you soon Uzoho (Akpeyi), Ndah, Onekuru, Onyeka, Ebuehi, and Olayinka. ht...

Re: set Piece and crosses

Is it that our players are not paying enough attention at the club level to assist the national team or they just don't care? It did not get any better under the last coach. Check last WC stats. You just know the outcome of our set piece. Is Simon crossing with his weaker foot? Do we need a coach? Y...

set Piece and crosses

Firstly, I think that we need to be happy that we got the points and the game was well handled against Egypt. The issue of crosses, corners is an age long problem of the SE. i think that this is an issue better discussed in a seperate thread. We don't do too well with dead ball situations in Major t...

Re: First game of 2022 - Ighalo scored a good goal

I lost interest on this site following backlash against ighalo. Instead there was a lot on osimhe and others who have not proved themselves with the national team. I was also wondering our faith if the new players are unable to honour invitation. Well what is playing out now show that the coaches kn...

How do you arrive at such heavy punishment without the other party being given a fair hearing? even if the decision was eventually correct, i dont like this approach one bit.

Re: Lagerback Says Fitness, Experience will Determine Final List

Lagerback said this and that. Less than 4 weeks to the world cup. All we've seen so far is table/paper soccer. No matches yet to fully access players. Not sure of what formation to adopt. I would be more worried as a coach.
