    Get well soon bro

     
  • Atleast 3 changes should be made to the team for the next game.
    1. Osimhen is injured and out so another player will take his place, preferably iheanacho.
    2. Either Awaziem or Aina should come in for Akpoguma
    3. I think Musa should be benched for a more younger player. Alot of players are available. Will Rohr play them ahead of Musa?
    4. Leon and Ekong are the best defensive pair we have in CB they should continue. But they need someone to shield them. I have always believed that awaziem will be a good defensive midfielder but it has never been tried. Rohr prefers using another central defender or creative midfielder in that position.
    Anyways lets see how it goes

      Hehehehe….younger players should replace Musa…..LMAO. Was it not the younger players that replaced musa and the whole team from attack to defence collapsed afterwards…? Lolz

    My contribution here is for everyone to remain calm.Things do happen for a good reason.This things happen sometimes.Every big footballing country have one time or the other gotten embarrassing results like we had yesterday.

    We should take it in the chin and move on.

    The multitude of players on everyone’s lips right now may not offer a better solution.At least we should take a positive look at the 4goals we scored in 29 mins,had the game finished that way or had we scored more the analysis would have been totally different from what we are getting at the moment.That fantastic 29mins was as result of Rohr’s master plan before it went all bad.

    However,we should be patient,support the team and hope they react positively in Freetown.This players and coaches are human and humans are never perfect beings.We may blame the coach for making awful decision but we may not know whether they were actually awful,because we are never in attendance at the practice sessions.
