Re: Leon Balogun: The Witch and the Super Eagles

I will not post the full story below as I like the site. It provides an insight into players' minds. Below is an extract. I would also recommend reading Lucas Moura's own as well. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/articles/leon-balogun-nigeria My sister’s best friend’s mom had a best friend, and sh...

Re: CAR 0 vs Nigeria 2

I suppose by 'good football' you mean efficient and organized football, because watching the teams you listed this past week, I would not describe them as playing 'good' football... They are efficient, organized and professional. Cannot say I've seen that in Rhor's team in last 4yrs. At least not w...

Re: AFCON win or world cup qualification?

Hello everyone This is a common debate among many african NT fans. Would you rather have Nigeria win the AFCON 2021/2 and then not qualify for the world cup, or Nigeria getting knocked out in the second round or quarter finals of the AFCON followed by a qualification to the world cup? Thanks AFCON ...

Re: Calvin Bassey must play

Teams are allowed up to 5 subs during these qualifiers... Thus, he should have at least been given a few minutes late in the game to cap-tie him. Doubt Rohr was thinking this far ahead. No need to cap tie him. I doubt England and Italy, the 2 countries he's qualified to play for are interested. Why...

Re: Where's DAMUNK?

Personally I think Rohr sucks and would rate him only slightly higher than Vogts. I don’t think he should have been hired in the 1st place and If I had my way, he should have been sacked after the WC in Russia. For the record so I am not accused of lacking objectivity, Rohr conducted the most impre...

Re: Fire Rohr ....

I have defended Rohr more than most people on this forum. but empirically he is NOT good enough to coach Nigeria. Not sentimentally, just based on the hard facts. He is a very nice person and I would love to have a coffee with him and all of that, but the hard facts says he is lacking. The thing ab...

I like that we are finally able to retain possession and sticking to simple passes.

Re: CAR 0 vs Nigeria 2

Good half.
3-5-2 is the way to go when we are playing people who want to defend deep.

Also need to keep surprising them with the early cross and off the ball runs.
