Let’s not forget that Finidi at one point was regarded as the best right winger in the world.

I remember it well well. Van gaal said if you place a coin in any area of the field, Finidi's cross will land right on it.
It's crazy they are already lambasting him after 2 games. When gbesero was loosing friendlies, why didn't Vancity call for him to be fired? This dude should get outta here!!! Bloody hypocrite!!!

I believe that Nigeria had a good football league in the 80s and 90s.
Your best players are of that era

Do not take Vancity's post seriously. He loves using hyperbole. He would not use that for an European manager.

You really cannot be this dense. Do you have a reading comprehension problem, or do you just traffic in dishonesty.

Let me make it clear once again so you can understand.

My attack on Finidi has NOTHING to do with us losing a friendly.

Do you get it ?

I will forever be grateful for Finidi sending us to our first WC with his goal. He also lost his younger brother when a stray bullet accidentally hit him during a fight between Rangers and Stationary Stores. With that said, being a good player does not equate to a good manager. I think it’s ridiculous to fire him after 2 games but if he does that sitting on his subs/terrible game plan again then he might have to give way.

He wouldn't be fired though.

Just NOT HIRED.

If you brought someone on for a job training/interview (who hadn't been hired yet) and they revealed themselves to be completely incompetent, would you then go on to hire them ?

We're really at an inflection point with Finidi George regarding the SE coaching job. Though he's qualified to be head coach, we cannot isolate his qualifications from his sentimental value to the fans.

Finidi George is SE. He was in the engine room of the most successful Era of SE history. Without Finidi there's no 94 SE and no 94 Afcon. Most of us here were influenced by the work he did for Nigeria in Europe and for SE.

Though I'd rather a more experienced coach due to the importance of the upcoming wcq. However, I also feel we don't have a real choice.

I cannot in good conscience oppose Finidi as head coach of Nigeria. I really wouldn't be able to live with my decision. I've tried to justify opposing him for different reasons but I just can't justify it to satisfy my conscience.

What we need to do now is rally around him and hope he gets the necessary resources needed for him to succeed. If he does well I'll be elated, if he doesn't I'm willing to take the hit as a badge of honor.

Because of, and for , Keshi, Amodu,Chukwu, Manu Garba and all the local coaches that have done us proud over the years and lifted the flag high. We must give Finidi a fair and honest chance to not only lead but create the new SE. That's all.

He’s not being fired. He is a caretaker manager going back to his original position as the assistant coach/Enyimba coach.

SECONDED & THIRDED, BUT...


...I'd like to know if someone is impersonating you.

On the subject of not using available subs, there are many reasons why coaches don't always use them in games of no import like this: players on the bench (like Lookman) are well known so there's no reason to see them again, better the unknowns be given full opportunity. Maybe the coach wants to try a particular combination of players, or trying to avoid injuries to key players just before a meaningful set of matches. Why would Lookman, as ALLEGED, be so upset? What does he get from playing in matches like this? All over the world in all sports, coaches do this in exhibitions and the proven players welcome it.

WHO'S THE NFF KIDDING?


They always hire a Nigerian assistant ostensibly to learn for the foreign expert. Then the foreign expert leaves and another foreign expert is hired and a new set of Nigerian assistants are lined up to "learn from him". Why doesn't the NFF give this charade up if Nigerians seemingly cannot learn?

The thread is about the blatant disrespect of Finidi by those with an obviously low EQ.
Anyone is free to disagree with his methods or object to his being hired but the disrespect is totally uncalled for.

Respect is earned.

I watched somebody completely disrespect the SE on Tuesday with his actions. And with so much at stake ?

It was very insulting.

Criticism of Finidi, the coach is fair game ( he left some points on the table with some of his decisions especially regarding substitutions in a game whose aim is to test few permutations ) and is not necessarily a blemish on his distinguished career as a super Eagle or a world class player for his various clubs


What I find repulsive is insults towards the man , the person just because of a game or two of football that did not go well

Grown men should be able to adjust their emotions and channel their inner anger the right way

There is a time and place for criticism of a coaching decision but the line is drawn where that criticism becomes personal

It’s not rocket science
For my sceptical Nigerian Friends : Pessimism is great because you are either always right or pleasantly surprised.

You obviously haven’t earned the respect of anyone here with your vile remarks aimed at players and coaches. That is the bigger crime, not the coach making mistakes in a couple of friendly matches.

No sir! I completely forgot the job isn’t his permanently. Well, he might have pissed away his chances of retaining the position. With a game in June, we need a permanent manager ASAP. I don’t even care the shade of his or her skin.
