Re: SE haven't scored 2 goals in 1st H since 92

Check this out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmWmbyp8IIo Rohr never recovered from this game. Also, I feel Okoye somehow still has horrific flashbacks from this game which explains his otherwise inexplicable jitters on occasion. Definitely the beginning of the end for Rohr in my books. His game ...

Re: 424 isn’t a balanced formation

One thing i noticed and one that i mentioned in a previous thread was Iwobi's 45 mins on saturday. He played the wide right role completely different from Samu and frankly i preferred iwobi's interpretation better. He was coming infield and making Aina make the wide overlap runs. Samu was hugging th...

Re: What Happened to Terem Moffi

He has not had a good season in front of goal. Still a quality in game player but the goals have dried up this season.

Re: Pinnick HT speech v Egypt

I was livid when I saw this video and still am looking at it right now. This is just disgusting from all involved. And the captains can't speak up?????

Re: Re: Nwakali

Nwakali and Iwobi today were excellent in their substitute roles. I have to say Iwobi is playing like somebody who has something to prove. I have been very impressed with him. Ugbowo, Great observation. I agree entirely. Iwobi may be pressured. If you notice, he is really the regularly starter on R...

Re: Re: Nwakali

The journalist in the post match presser asked Egu a question attacking Nwakali. She said Egu's subs have not had any impact and mentioned Nwakali by name. I thought it was a terrible question because it was the wrong analysis of the game and seemed to be asked by a novice analyzer but maybe a seaso...

Re: Nigeria vs Sudan 3-1 full time

Some of the questions asked in that presser were amateurish and bush league, especially the Nwakali one. Kudos to Coach Egu for not taking the bait.

Re: I found this! It sheds some light

Maybe i'm a debbie downer but this was very much a routine analysis.

Great for programs like this because the audience can easily decipher what he's talking about.

But from a coaching standpoint....this is beginner stuff.

Re: SE Camp updates

I'm just glossing over all the reactions after one game.

I'm not the type to make proclamations based on one game. We should take it one game at a time. Too much is being made off Tuesday's performance.

Long long road ahead.

Re: SE V Sudan - Any changes?

Barring any injury, the same starting line up should be used. I assume Zaidu will get the license to bomb forward this game as Aina did last game. Kelechi may not have that much space either so his touches will have to be crispier. An early goal for us will really loosen things up, otherwise we can ...

Re: Carlos Queiroz: We only started playing in the second-half against Nigeria

The free kick was given for us because the Egyptian winger caused Simon to slip by putting his hand on Simon's face.

Re: Nigeria v Egypt according to Whoscored.com

What on earth did Rohr have against Ola Aina ? Even left him out of the World Cup for a junk like Echijele. What a clown. Rohr had 2 RBs and will play 180 mins with a midfielder there. Go figure. He deserved the sack. He's gone now and hopefully we have a coach that plays ppl in their preferred pos...

We manhandled them. Finishing and final decisions need to improve though. On to the next match. 45 mins we hardly put ...
