    I watched the match last night ,this guy is so so good, the way he dribbles in thight space is amazing to watch. With this guy, aribo and iwobi in our midfield, super eagles will play exciting football and score a lot of goals..the guy is too good trust me..

      ….and probably concede lots of goals too since there will be no out and out DM to shield out defense….Lol. But hey…d guy is good. The assist to Joao for that third goal was very Okocha-esque. The way him and Olise orchestrate things for Reading in the attacking 3rd is so amazing…they are the reason I dont miss any of Reading’s matches for over a season now. I just wish we can have these 2 to ourselves in the SE.

        I wish too bro.but I think ejaria is a more established player.ndidi is always a mainstay as the DM the trio of aribo,iwobi and ejaria will have to be interchange base on the tactics and opponents

    I have said it several times in this forum that with Ejaria committed and available to us we should forget Eze who is still marking time to commmit his future to Nigeria but decreetly waiting for England call up. Ejaria for me is by far better than Eze.

    Ejwria will add more values to SE midfield. Strong with the ball, great ball-distribution, skillful and athletic.
    The addition of Awoniyi, Moffi, Noni, Sadiq, Tella, Lookman, Ejaria and Adara will make SE more competitive.
    With the right technical approach and team selection, SE can become one of the leading teams in global soccer.

      Leading teams in global soccer? With Awoniyi, Moffi, Ejaria and Co? Baba slow oh…

       
  • I wonder why we were losing sleep over eze when ejaria has committed his future to Nigeria.

    Ejaria is simply Kanu Nwankwo rebirth. Highly skilled n intelligent player

     
  • The match against Bournemouth was interesting, ejaria played very well. He was alive to his responsibilities both creative and tracking back to pick up opposing players. He is a creative midfielder, there is no doubt he will add more to the Super Eagles team. Olise also played well on the wings. He is their set piece taker. We could use a player like him in our team but since we have Aribo I wont lose any sleep over his decision not to switch allegiance to Nigeria.

     
  • I pity our dear national team(SUPER EAGLES).

    This is the time we would have paraded the best young team in africa, dorminating and winning laurels but our own pple that claim to be more patroitic than others crept in and make things tough for the coach.

    Sometimes i ask myself why a country like nigeria should be thinking backward in everything???

    With the plethoria of young and vibrant foreign-borns at our disposal, many matches would have been a walk-over for us but our greedy and selfish interest would definitely deprive us of it bcos of the “quota” for homebase players.

    Let’s say 4 or 5 homebase are selected, 3 goal keepers are picked making a total of 8 or 9 players.

    Now the coach can only add 14 players which will likely be his regulars(MUSA, BALO., EKONG, ZAIDU, AINA, AWAZIEM, AJAYI, NDIDI, ETEBO, ARIBO, KALU, CHUKWU., IWOBI, OSIMHEN, ONUACHU, SIMON).

    IT’S COMPULSORY THAT ATLEAST 4 HOME BASE “MUST” BE IN THE TEAM.
    NOW THE BIG QUESTION IS; WHO WOULD THEY DROP FOR THESE FOREIGN BORNS???

    WHEN WE SEE SOMETHING FROM FAR AND RAISE ALARM SOME PPLE SAY WE TALK TOO MUCH; THIS’ THE TIME TO FACE THE REALITY.
