Re: OSIMHEN INJURED.

He plays with too much force. If he wants a long career, he’ll have to figure out how to play less recklessly.

That said I hope he gets some sort of protective mask like Jiminez when he returns.

Re: CAF have moved the Draws for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers

Shameful that CAF capitulated to the demands of Egypt that the draw is done after the Arab Cup. The Egyptians will learn once again that they will not qualify through the back door.

Let’s not conflate things here. Dennis is several levels above Lookman.

A very impressive player. He’s a hard worker who can hold off CDs and bring other players into the game.

Re: Ademola Lookman

We’ve seen him play in many games. He’s average at best and his career stats are proof of this. The HT sub today was simply another data point. If you expect this guy to be a game changer for the SE, you probably still believe Success is the greatest thing since sliced bread 🤭 Subbed off at the half...

Re: Ademola Lookman

Subbed off at the half today vs Chelsea. He is aaight but not all that. The guy might as well play for Ghana. He is short and squarely average in skills.

Re: The Arsenal FC - Related News and Devts for 2021-22 Season

One thing I noticed is Tavares seems to be a better option than Tierney. He brings a physicality that Tierney cannot match. I think he is the guy who can stick with Salah Liverpool having injury problems. Mane, Firmino and Henderson are out. Oportunity for Arseanl to atleast get a draw. Woud setup t...

Don’t overestimate the Algerians and Moroccans. They can be had. They are good but have faced some pretty weak and disorganized teams. I dunno if you watched Egypt lately but they aren’t great in my view. Tunisia are also there for the taking. If ghana gets one of those North African teams, be it Mo...

Re: Ghana vs South Africa

If Ghana can can get players like Salisu in central defense they may stand a chance in the next round. But the truth is I’d rather have them in the next round to challenge N African sides such as Algeria and Morocco.

Re: Ghana vs South Africa

On the basis of how they’ve played today, I don’t see this Ghana team making the WC. Too many second rate Euro players and the likes of Baba Rahman and Jordan Ayew whose play has drastically regressed over the years.

AWCQ - Ghana in a precarious situation

They drew Ethiopia and now have to beat S Africa in Ghana by potentially a large margin to qualify.

S Africa has a +1 advantage (and equal on pts) over Ghana in GD with a home match vs Zimbabwe in hand. If they can beat Zimbabwe by two or more today, I believe it’s curtains for Ghana.

Re: Bushboy..

Success moved to the EPL too quickly. Sometimes it pays off to mature a bit before moving to the bigger stage. Awoniyi and Oshimen took the harder, less glamorous route and just look at them today.
