    When this loan deal was sealed, I predicted nothing less than 5 goals coming off the boots of Ighalo for Man U during the period of the loan…..little did i know that Odion would have thumped in 4 in just 318 minutes of football.

    A prophet indeed has no regard in his own homeland…!

    So we had a truly WORLD CLASS striker in our National team all this while, dwelling amongst us….yet we let hatred and unforgiveness shut our eyes to the gem on our hands. Odion has not played anything different from what he plays in the SE. He only seems to be more at home in the Red and White knowing he is well loved by the Man U family – teamates and fans alike.

    Ride on Ighalo…..God is your strength…..Let your God be my God.

      Did anyone notice Ole’s reaction to Ighalo’s goal….???
      He seemed to say “Okokobioko…!”

       
  • Did anyone hear the comments paul ince made about ighalo’s goal?

    That goal by Ighalo is one of the best I’ve seen so far this year. A puskas award contender. As they used to say – FEED THE YAK, AND HE WILL SCORE, now they are saying – START IGHALO, AND HE WILL SCORE! Ole should start Ighalo more in premier league games.

     
  • Igalo has bought my intrest to man u, I advice Man Utd to go for Nigerian footballers

     
  • GLORY 6 months ago

    That goal has got the big X-factor in it. Only pure talents score such goals. He is always had it in him, right from the U-20s days. But just hadn’t been too lucky but unwarranted hatred/ sick name calling from overzealous fans has invited angels to camp around him n now everything he touches turns into gold.

    That Ighalo goal was very classy. I’m so happy for him. Though, I’m a Chelsea fan and I never loved Man United but I think Ighalo is changing that now.

    Keep up the good work our man Ighalo. God bless Nigeria!!!

      “…Ighalo is not the type of Striker we need in the SE…”
      .
      .
      ..
      “…GR should teach other strikers how to play like Ighalo…”

      LMAOooooo….!!!

    Am so happy for him.Just like Drey said wickedness and unforgiveness and shallow mindedness sent this guy away from the SE.We are very judgemental in this country,reason the white will continue to excell generally.I remember Omogja and several other naysayers castigating the coach whenever Igalo was invited in the name that he plays in China,the same China Barca made an offer for him and he rejected and now Man.U.

    What exactly do we want as a nation is it glamour that will take u no where or what?.
    The same hatred persisted against this guy even after he dwarfed all other strikers at the Afcon all because according to them he did not perform well at the world cup as though only one world cup can defined u as a player.The same hatred is presently trending against Akpeyi led by the wicked,myopic,double standard and fibble hearted Omogja.

    Dea Gea was a mess as a goal keeper in 2018/2019 season in Man U colour and took same week form to the world cup and so messed it up that according to my standard was the worst keeper at that tournament.But I ask is Dea Gea a bad keeper?the answer is nooooooooo.But what happened to him that season,he was merely off like when a snake is about 5o shed his skill.

    Now can anybody on this platform now conveniently say Igalo should not return back to the SE?it makes no sense to leave out ur best player from the team……..
