Awoniyi Wins Nottingham Forest’s Man Of The Match Award Again

For the second game running Super Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi was named Nottingham Forest Man of the Match, after his goal earned them a 1-0 win at Southampton in Wednesday’s Premier League game.

Awoniyi was announced the best player on Forest’s Twitter handle, an award he also got in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea few days back.

Awoniyi polled 45 percent of the votes to top a four-man shortlist that include Brennan Johnson, Renan Lodi and Joe Worrall.

Johnson polled 22 per cent while Lodi and Worrall got 21 and 12 percents respectively.

Awoniyi netted the only goal of the game in the 27th minute to secure Forest their first Premier League away win this season.

He now has four goals in 16 league appearances for the newly promoted club this term.

The win against Southampton saw Forest climb out of the relegation zone to 15th position in the league standings.

    But WHAT?!!

    4 GOALS in 16 GAMES?!!

    That’s VERY POOR coming from a STRIKER

    • @MONKEY POST Do you have a problem with Nigerians who perform well. Or are you just addicted to mediocrity or just a trouble maker. I have only ever seen you support below average players bench warmers players who add nothing to Super Eagles you are clearly a wierd dude

        @UGO this is a NEW YEAR.

        You BETTER COME OFF with this your POOR MENTALITY..

        Cos it seems you like getting over EXCITED over EVERYTHING POOR and VERY AVERAGE..

      Scoring 4 goals in 6 starts is highly impressive. It tells much about his scoring ability. Awoniyi is one the few strikers that can make SE better.

        If you like PAINT it, EDIT and MODIFY it..

        All I know is that, in all, in 16 APPEARANCE HE could only MANAGE a MEGRE 4 GOALS(of which 2 or 3 of them are FLUKE). And that’s POOR RECORD coming from a STRIKER…

        I mean WE have seen where STRIKERS started a few number of GAMES lesser than that of AWONIYI but still come up with DOUBLE DIGITS NUMBER of GOALS…

    If the NFF is proposing a ban on foreign-based and foreign-born players it should draw up and publish a list of who should not play for the Super Eagles again, get their international passports withdrawn and tell Nigerians who their native replacents should be. We hsve been bezting about the bush on this subject for decades and still not found any solutions.

    • benakay 1 year ago

      That would be the most idiotic and unintelligent thing for any FA to do, especially in this day and age.
      Only a stupid nation will decide to get rid of its BEST players (who, in the case of Nigeria, are CLEARY its foreign based and foreign born players), just to satisfy a few xenophobic idiots in the country.

      But what do I know – Nigeria has been hijacked by imbeciles and morons anyway, so it should be a surprise if it happens.

    • @Ako Amadi after the World Cup you just witnessed what in the world makes you think that will be a good Idea?.

    The battle to survive the drop between Leceister, Everton, Nottingham and Southampton will be one to watch and all these teams are basically all the players we have in the premiership that are in our national team…..lol. The national team might just end up being full of championships players…
