Kelechi Nwakali…

Post by TonyTheTigerKiller »

It appears Kelechi Nwakali has been signed by Portuguese Primeira Liga club G,D. Chaves from relegated Spanish side Ponferradina. Hopefully, this is the beginning of better things to come for the lad. Kudos❗️

I saw the report earlier and I was thanking God, this lad is too talented to waste away in obscure clubs. I hope this will mark a new phase in his career

Ope ooooo! Some did he didn't deserve a call because he plays in the 2nd div. Well o well, the bot has moved up and some have moved down to the 2nd div. I wonder if the dame will apply to the new 2nd div players. :sneaky:

Nwakali should start ahead of Ndidi and Aribo now since they're both low league players. :thumbs:

For the life of me, I can’t fathom how Nwakali’s career stalled the way it did for so long. There is no doubt in my mind that he’s an exceptional talent. Every time I’ve watched him play, he’s given a very good account of himself, particularly in that friendly between Nigeria B and Atletico Madrid. He was one of the better players on the pitch. Now that he’s finally broken through to top tier football, I believe that if given the opportunity, he has all the tools to be as effective for us in midfield as Mikel was❗️

The highlighted is even too long ago. Just go back to last year at the nations cup. Rewatch the games, especially against Guniea Bissau, the dude was balling. If I were coach he will definitely be in my team, no question.

With Nwakali not only do we have deep playmaker but we also a good free kick and corner kick taker who actually helps defensively. To this day I believe he’s the missing link on our MF. I’m elated that he finally gets a chance in a decent league with a decent team. His new team finished 7th in Portugal last season, if they improve he could be playing Europa next yr. I’m so so happy for the real Kelechi. :thumbs:

For the life of me I cannot understand how Nwakali has just been forgotten, amongst a set of midfielders that are so mechanical apart from Iwobi and Aribo.

Surely Nwakali had done enough vs EG to at least be in the SE squads going forward. Surely he would have added to the squad more than the 4 to 5 strikers we had in some squads.

Before the usual suspects come and blame Peseiro (who has some of the blame, it's just piss poor and lazy scouting on his behalf)

How on earth did Egu, who saw him up close in Cameroon just dump him for the Ghana double header. It's a head scratcher. Or is there something to the "lazy player" reputation that Nwakali has gotten ?

Anyways hope he takes this opportunity and grabs his place among SE midfield, because we need him to be on point.

This is great news. Kelechi Nwakali is a baller. No doubt about that. What has created doubt are the career opportunities he has had thus far. These have been far from suited to his doubtless talent and what he can bring to the table if afforded an enabling environment.

I’m praying that this guy succeeds, but something about him doesn’t feel right. I know sometimes he has that Mesut Ozil “I’ll jog while my teammates do the running” type of mentality. Arsenal gave up on him too easily which is unlike them.

Nwakali wasn't available for the World Cup qualifiers double-header against Ghana. You seem to have forgotten the embroglio that ensued between him and his clubside (Huesca) after the Nations Cup. There is no way that Eguavoen could have (or should have) called up an inactive player for those games against the Slack Stars.

If Musa can be called up while he was clubless, they could have called up a much more needed Nwakali.

We will see how it goes. I thought he was very good at the Nations Cup (still needs to be more physical though). I'm also looking forward to seeing the progress of Marcus Abraham at Porto.

For once, I agree with vancity. Nwakali should have been called up for the World Cup qualifiers regardless of his club situation❗️

This kid has the best PR I have ever seen. He is either bribing a lot of people (including CE members) or he is foccking everybody!

There is no logical explanation for the support he gets -- it either money or sex!

Yup. Completely agree. Still waiting for the great midfield hope to materialize. Every year is a new beginning. Hope it works out for him
