The Lookman guy plays with typical naija swagger, for someone who went through his football development in the UK, I am amazed he is still able to keep that swag. The drag of the feet,, the drop of the shoulder, the glide and no look passes... Ademola Lookman is a certified naija boy.

Lookman na baller. He will probably even be more comfortable in the SE than club football. He had a quiet first half but impressed in the second half and his goal na helele.

Aina looks tentative, but he was solid defensively.

Adarabioyo looks cool calm and collected. Reminds me of Uche Okechukwu.

Lookman though is the gem. There are not many players that operate like him anymore. See how the other Fullham winger was playing like a robot. I wonder what it is with these modern footballers that they are so uncreative.

Thank God England are quite stacked in the position he plays in, at least they won't be LOOKING in his direction anytime soon. And what's with the delay with Lookman*s nationality switch? Akpoguma's own was fast, even Ejaria switch process was fast.

I'm excited to see the right wing-AM play between Iwobi and Lookman for SE. Our team is taking a formidable shape. Our midfield is solid, backs are solid, forwards are solid. We need a solid CD to complete our spine of Osimhen, Ndidi and ........

My takes from match.

Aina - offered nothing in attack. Quite shocking to be honest. OK defensively but considering he didn't attack at all he was caught out a few times.

Adarabioyo- good with distribution, and calm on ball, but left his man for far too many free headers in the first half.

Lookman - Quiet first half but came to life in the 2nd with a well taken goal. He had another shot which may have scored blocked at the last moment, and also dribbled and put in a great cross for the wasteful Mitrovic. Lookman can dribble, pass, shoot, and even pit in crosses it seems. A complete player, I still maintain on current form he is our best winger.

He needs to be better defensively to be considered the complete package. But his offensive game is pure quality. His biggest asset to me is his football intelligence. That's what will take him places.

Glad to see him back in form after a couple of rocky seasons.

Abeg for those in the know, why's Lookman's nationality switch taking this much time?

Do you think it was a good idea for Adarabioyo to join Fulham? :D

On Match of The Day 2 tonight, they singled him out as an exceptional player.
The more he puts in these kind of performances the more he attracts media attention.

If he has started or even completed his switch, we are safe.
If he hasn't, then another tug-of-war will commence.
I said it last year: the Abraham/Tomori saga was just the beginning.

England at some point will have to give up, because no way are they going to populate their Three Lions with players from Oyo, Edo, Anambra and Rivers states. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Good to see that everybody is in agreement that the boy is good. That is the sign of a good player. Now, we would need to see how he performs in the GWG if we suceed in “tapping” him.

My broda. No one is calling him the 2nd coming but this guy is fast, mobile, skillful and has real goal scoring talent. He’s made for Nigeria. The boy is legit.

Sheffield was one of the best defensive teams last season. This season they havent been so bad defensively as well.

He is the reason why they got promotion, not once but twice. He just had a terrible day today, he usually tucks in those headers. He is probably their all time highest goal scorer, he has been their goleador 3 or 4 seasons running now. Without him, they hardly score. Don't know what happened to him today.

Sorry sir

Mitrovic is useless. He played for Newcastle before he moved to Fulham. Championship is his level. Even at that Level, he was not the best.
