Re: Obinna Nwobodo: FC Cincinnati sign Nigerian midfielder from Goztepe

MSL is better than a lot of leagues in Europe. At least you will get proper football education. You will get good facilities. Good medical care. Good nutrition. And you WILL BE FIT! I always laugh when Naijarians denigrate MLS... they just don't know anything about it. But it also seems the best US...

Re: Liverpool - Football Thread

A glowing ode to an African giant. Mane carried the baton and emerged an all Olympian. To conceive a fellow continental star would step into the footprints of such leviathans as Didier Drogba with equal measure, was reserved for fantasy. Mane not only walked with the elephants, but grew tusks and t...

Re: RANKED. Ranking Nigeria's best defensive midfielders since 1945

Muda Lawal was never a defensive midfielder in the mould we have today, he was an attacking Midfielder that scored goals (similar to Frank Lampard) provided assists. Winning the ball in midfield or protecting the back four was never his game even though he wore the number 4 jersey. What are you tal...

Congratulations Ugbade I think he's done well so far in the squad selection and composition. And he needs to be commended for the talent that he's assembled. Because of the very poor pitch and playing conditions, I'll reserve judgement a bit on the player development side. But TBH, I do not like so...
