Re: General assessment of Peseiro so far

Its not unusual to make your best player captain...

Making Moses Simon the captain though....Thats worrying....

Re: Peseiro is decent

If we disregard the goal...who do you think would be the more satisfied coach? I think Ecuador gave us a lot more trouble than they had any right to... The game was never out of Ecuador's control...Credit to Peseiro for his halftime changes, but they should have come sooner Nothing against Peseiro, ...

Re: Match Report (Brief) as Peseiro Starts o-2.....

What about Ecuador's chance creation ratio against us? Does that not mean anything? So whats the win ratio now? At what point should we give him a BOOT :) My biggest take isn't about winning or losing in pointless friendly matches with a team he didn't pick, it's our chance creation ratio that has s...

Re: Ghana 0 vs Nigeria 0 WCQ '22 qualifier 1st Leg

We definitely need the extra midfielder...Aribo can move up a bit, with Etebo and Bonke behind him in MF

Re: Rohr's opinion on the Super Eagles' loss to Tunisia

I think maybe you should consider that Philosophy and system are not the same thing.

Re: Rohr's opinion on the Super Eagles' loss to Tunisia

Re: Rohr's opinion on the Super Eagles' loss to Tunisia

Taking Rohr's Eurocentric viewpoint, Nigeria should really not bother to show u at the World Cup...I dont believe we have any hidden god players anywhere. I believe our best players are on display for all to see week in and week out.. In the context of the European game, most of our players are aver...

I dont know whose bubble you're bursting, but its not mine...my central point still stands, regardless of the fact that we did not create enough or make the required adjustments against Tunisia.

Re: The Amaju Pinnick Rhapsody

So just to be clear, you would have preferred that Rohr took us to the ANC? I remind folks that Westerhof finished 3rd in his first AFCON, and then won the 2nd after building his team for 4 years. There were clear parallels with this squad (not team). The losses to CAR may have been demoralizing, bu...
