  • My People Make Una rush come See Ademola Lookman OOOOO Na wa oooo, leave story the boy is s Baller of Note. from his displays today I see he is probably our best winger right now.

    Why was Aina on the bench the 2 inrernationals. the boy is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!

      England will definitely want Lookman back afterall he won the world cup with their youth team.
      Like Ugo said, leave story, Ademola Lookman is one of Super Eagles eligible best wingers out there. E go pain me if we lose the lad o.

    Watching Sheffield U Vs Fulham and I can see that this LOOKMAN guy is a real GEM. How Lepzig refuse to appreciate his Talents beats my imagination. I sincerely wish his national switch to Nigeria is expedited fast before Southgate begin to eye him. He is highly needed in SE to show some of our wingers how to play soccer.
    I believe Rohr has settled for Aina for the November matches but wanted to give others the chance to prove if they are better but they didn’t convince outright. Udokhai was only use on the right side of a back 3 in a 352 formation

     
  • @Igbekun Abo bros it will pain me too and is very sad, I feel you there.

    When we speak we get attack instead of people, Nigerian people joining forces and making out our constructive suggestions to the coach of our darling Super Eagles SO our united voices can be heard. Suggestions that will aid him in selecting the right players I mean pushing for quality and most importantly making the right decisions regarding Everything I mean from on field to off field at the right time.

    Look how Rohr invited Apkoguma to “OUR” camp even before he was certain to play him why not extend that same gesture to Lookman when he knew the boy expressed interest in pledging allegiance to his Fatherland. Now the greatest fear I had will be realised Lookman May be swayed by England because of Match wining performances it is Soo Sad… Some Crooniees will come here claming to love our darling Eagles but Blindly supporting every decision Rohr makes even if it is to our detriment yet they don’t their actions will only hurt us in the long run and we will all suffer the consequences Like one.

    PS. Ladies and Gentlemen Lookman is now “OFFICIALLY” back on Gareth Southgate’s (England Coach) radar

    I watched Sheffield vs Fulham match this afternoon with a rapt attention.to the Nigerian contingent on the line-up(Lookman,Aina and Adarabioyo). Wallahi those guys aforementioned really impressed me. They didn’t make my time useless. Lookman na bomb! That guy is a naturally born talented player. With my due observation on him, by the time FIFA finally approve his switch he will surely become an asset to the super eagles team.

    With the avalanche of wingers in the supers eagles set up these days I will play lookman from no.10.
    I am personally looking forward to a super eagles line-up in the following manner.

    OKOYE

    AINA. AKPOGUMA. BALOGUN. ZAIDU

    NDIDI. ARIBO

    CHUKWUEZE. LOOKMAN. EJUKE

    OSIMEHN

     
  • Chukwueze hardly defends, he will leave the RB exposed. I suggest this formation:
    OKOYE

    AINA. AKPOGUMA. BALOGUN. ZAIDU

    NDIDI. ARIBO

    EJUKE IWOBI LOOKMAN

    OSIMHEN

    THE ONLY ISSUE HERE IS BOTH EJUKE AND LOOKMAN ARE SMALL IN STATURE, THEY WOULD GIVE OUR MF A LOT OF
    WORK TO DO IF WE PLAY TEAMS THAT HAVE TALLER AND PHYSICAL PLAYERS.
    THEREFORE, WE CAN TRY THIS OUT
    OKOYE

    AINA. AKPOGUMA. BALOGUN. ZAIDU

    NDIDI. ARIBO

    IHEANACHO IWOBI. EJUKE(LOOKMAN)

    OSIMEHN
