  • The best Nigerian striker in Europe at the moment…..but sadly he has to wait for his time because midiocres must be settled..,…It’s so unthinkable.

    Dumbo Roar will tell us I have have Ighalo, Kalu, Onuachu and Iheanacho in camp..
    Who are Awoniyi, Dennis, Lookman, Desser and Sadiq going to replace..

    Awoniyi is only behind Halaand and Lewandowski…

    • You Rohr haters.

      Amaju Pinnick said it him self he imposes players on ROhr. Rohr na gentle man

    Union Berlin is 4th in the Bundesliga and has Taiwo Awoniyi who is one of the top scorers in Germany….. Hoffenheim is 5th and have a Akoogunma who is a regular but these two are never utilized by a coach….. Honestly a 5th placed team in the Bundesliga ranks higher than Rangers and Watford.

    • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

      3rd highest goalscorer****

      • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

        Even with Sadiq’s goal drought he is still the 3rd or 4th top scorer in the Segunda division. The only Africans scoring more than Nigerians are Salah and Mane… The Osimhen injury is really painful cause I know he would have scored more by now but good news for Napoli is that he will resume pitch training next week but it will be non contact training. I have a feeling Napoli got dubious with this injury and he will be back playing for them by mid or late January as soon as the Nation’s cup start.

        The best Nigerian striker in Europe but according to rohr and his supporters,he lacks experience and club football is different from national team football.im happy rohr will never near our national team again,let him go and coach Lesotho his level

  • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

    Check this Bundesliga chart and let that sink in about some of Rohr’s decisions.


    I’m not sure of any national team gaffer that won’t be proud that his player is almost tying the goalscoring chart with Haaland and Lewandowski…

    • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

      And then we also have Dennis who has scored but these players are not part of the national set up and people attack you when you question stuff like this… Also have Dessers.

  • Ayphillydegreat 2 months ago

    Awoniyi is primed to be our top striker in Cameroon. Along with Dennis and Chukwueze we should be good to go. I also have a feeling Napoli are playing games with Nigeria regarding Osimhen’s injury. Anyway camping starts in about 2 weeks while all the North African teams are currently playing in the FIFA Arab cup. Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, Morocco and Tunisia are using that tournament to begin preparations for the AFCON. While we don’t even have a coach and we want to go there and win the AFCON Lmao!! Disaster looming.

    People should stop being talking without sense as regards the Osimehn injury.
    The guy broke some bones in his head (face).
    If you’ve ever had a complicated fracture and had metal screws fixed in your body, you’ll understand better.

    To come up I public and say imbecilic trash as to Napoli playing games with Osimehn’s health is to say the least stupid.

    Broken bones in the head region should even require a long rest period.

    People and their foolishness…

  • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

    I think you’re the imbecile for insulting people that are assuming. It’s not out of the ordinary for a European club to prevent one of their best players from going to the Nation’s cup. There have been players with similar injuries who have spent less time on the sidelines but I would prefer Osimhen miss the Nations cup to heal better and also to be fully fit for the worldcup play offs. Idiots like you just insult without being diplomatic in your explanation. Maybe you should seek advice from your imbecilic folks who didn’t train you well..

      @DiMastta, @Footballfanatic,

      Just take deep breaths and calm. Peace. Don’t work up yourselves and throw punches. We need concerted efforts to aver constructive opinions that will keep the SE out of the gutters.

  • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

    I’ve been trying not to insult anyone here and just discuss football but then you have nitwits like this fool calling people imbecilic for airing their opinion.

  • Good one awoniyi. Please dont relent in your goal scoring. I see you making the Super Eagles team to Cameroon for the afcon and scoring lots of goals there.

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Yes o keep going. You will get there. Yes o he needs the experience. It was because of the same lack of experience that made Liverpool and klop(German tactician) to loan him severaly and then finally selling him to Union Berlin. But y’all did not crucify klop for that. But everybody is busy crucifying our same German tactician that God has blessed us with for saying players needs experience in the super eagles.

    • Derrick 2 months ago

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    When we ready to play good football… We go dey honest with ourselves! One love…

  • @Footballfanatic why don’t you calm down and come off this Rohr matter. Is Awoniyi the only scoring player that hasn’t make the national team when there are abundant options available in the same department to the coach as well. The fact that he hasn’t break into Rohr team doesn’t mean he will not if he continue doing the way he is not going to in future after all he was given a chance but couldn’t convert a very clear cut chances that came his way in that match though that doesn’t take away anything from him it simply means he needs time as national team football is different from club footbal. Yes someone talked about Klop aboved does it mean Klop is not good for selling him this season because the guy present form is better than some of current Liverpool strikers Barr Salah and Mane.. Is Awoniyi not better than Minamino or Origi that Klop sold him out because of? How can you have established players in the national team like Oshimen,Iheanacho,Ighalo,Onuachu and your calling for Awoniyi who hasn’t find it feet to come in without giving more time. Even if he is invited he is not sure of starting shirt so what is the noise. Try to be fair in your criticism that is what we Rohr supporter as you normally called us is saying not that we are related or benefited from him..
