Europa League : I’m Prepared For Arsenal Battle-Olayinka

Europa League : I’m Prepared For Arsenal Battle-Olayinka

Slavia Prague winger Peter Olayinka is firmly focussed on Thursday’s (today) Europa League quarter-final tie against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, reports Completesports.com.

Jindřich Trpišovský’s men will look to continue their impressive run in the competition against the North London Club.

The Czech Republic side have already knocked out Leicester City and Glasgow Rangers from the competition this season.

Slavia Prague are no doubt the underdogs heading into contest, but Olayinka is convinced they can come out with a positive result.

“I am focused on the match and I am looking forward to it. It’s great to be in such a stadium,”the Nigeria international told the club website.

“We did well in the last outdoor matches and I believe that we can show an equally good performance on Thursday.

Despite his positive mood ahead of the game, Olayinka however insists his side must stop Arsenal duo Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette to achieve tneir objective.

“They play a lot in a team, everyone is important to them. But I think that Aubameyang and Lacazette are the top players we have to be most careful about, “he added.

    @Jimmyball, I know this guy is your guy but bro honestly after watching him on several occasions if I were GR I won’t invite him at all. Don’t get me wrong ooo, he is a hardworking player and tracks back quite a bit and is full of energy but the guy no get skill at all in my view. You can’t compare him with Kalu, Simon, Onyekuru or Chukwueze. He can barely go past his marker. He isn’t enterprising at all. He just runs and runs, nothing to offer I swear. When he gets the ball I am expecting he would do something with it but I see nothing from him. When chukwueze, Kalu, Simon, even Onyejuru gets d ball you will see them trying to take on their man, improvise, do something different but Olayinka doesn’t offer much other than running aimlessly and tracking back. At one time I thought he was the RB. Even the midfielders from Liberia that almost gifted lacazette a goal, you could see the guy has some skill and flare. Bro, there is no way he (olayinka) can make my 23 man squad at the expebse of the guys we currently have if i am d coach. The best he can do is be part of the standby list. I would take even Anayo or ejuke ahead of him if I am honest. Again don’t get me wrong ooo, he is a decent player in his own right but me personally won’t pick him ahead of any of tge present or fring SE wingers. Nite i am not using just this match against arsenal to assess him, i have seen several games he has played in both the champions league and Europa league games, he may have scored some goals in those competitions but he doesn’t do it for me personally. Just my opinion tho.

      @Proudly9ja…..how many times have I said these exact same things you have just highlighted here……but no…..SOMEBODY’S WILL MUST BE DONE. Its either Rohr calls his starboys or Rohr is a dumb, senile incompetent old fool.

      I’ve said it times without numbers….OLAYINKA IS NO WINGER….he is a forward who attacks from the left wing….more or less an inside forward (not even a wing-forward) just like an Aubameyang or Anthony Martial. That is why you will neither see him take on defenders, show creativity on the by-lines, vision in tight spaces or produce pin-point crosses from the flanks, but rather see him attack the centre of the box more often than not. He will struggle to bench a Kalu, Simon, Onyekuru, Ejuke or even Lookman on the wings in the SE. He has a lot of energy, fine, but he’s not winger. He is a forward thant can play as a lone striker or a support striker. He is more of a Siasia-esque or Amokachi-esque type of player.

      But people who know football more than people who have been playing football before they started crawling will tell us he’s not just a left winger but also a left-sided midfielder. LMAO

      The one wey make me laugh sotey i nearly stumble touch my neighbor wife botos was when he named Olayinka as left-wing-back in that his fantasy ballon’d’grammy lineup the other day……LMAOoooooo.

      Olayinka surely deserves a place in the SE……but I’ve not seen which of the current wingers he will bench comfortably, neither is he in pole position to bench any of our current Forwards. Maybe he is a victim of his own versatility…..a jack of many trades but master of none. But one sure thing is that it will take much more than energy and work rate for Olayinka to displace any of his competitors in the current SE.

       
  • This guy is 6.2 ft tall talented and a powerhouse that we need to join others in the Eagles. To say he is not okocha or Ronandiho is unfair to him. In the first place he is a top striker that sometimes play from the wings , he has played and scored against most of the top teams in Europe season after season. Top strikers don’t need to be good dribblers so long as they always have their eyes on goal. Yekini was not a good dribbler, Eminike, onuachu etc are not good dribblers but that does not mean they are not good strikers.

     
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      So which of the top strikers in the team now should be dropped for him….? Osimhen, Onuachu, Iheanacho….? Which of them isn’t delivering in the colours of the SE and thus ought to be dropped for Olayinka…? Or are you also of the opinion that Rohr has to invite 7 Forwards to the SE when only 2 or max of 3 will be needed…??

       
    • Then, we didn’t have much options. But now, we have a lot of options……we have a lot of strikers who can dribble and also have an eye for goal. I don’t know the Olayinka of a guy, apart from the few minutes he played against Ukraine. But if I’m judging him based on your analysis of him, then, we don’t need him in SE

       
  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    Now I see how our opinions differ from time to time on this forum which is good… @Proudly 9ja,@Dr.Drey and @FRANK Smith, I appreciate your comments and views about Peter Olayinka… Infact I think, more forumites should also contribute more to player assessment in this way to help each other take stock of diverse qualities a player may have. I really do appreciate the evident dribbling skills of the likes of Samuel Kalu, Chukwueze and Iwobi. However, @Proudly 9ja,you said Olayinka lacks eye catchy skills, and @Dr.Drey also shared this views too… while you both could be excused those views, I must say that in reference to “Skills”, dribbling is just one single floral level only… salient but other vital skills include heading ability, passing & vision, tenacity on the ball (not being easily dispossessed off it), exploitation of space (Raumdeuter… Like Thomas Mueller does pretty well), shooting accuracy… so all these are equally enviable skills that a player could also pride in, regarding his body of game. Now let’s take a Player like Thomas Mueller, how much skill will any fan say he has regarding nifty footwork and trickery? How about Italian legends like Paolo Rossi and even recently, Fillipo Inzaghi? Even our own legendary Rashidi Yekini… these players have no time for nifty and fancy footworks… they just charge and plunder straightup! One of the highly heralded player to care little about dribbling is Pippo Inzaghi but he was lethal… Liverpool FC can attest… Lol. It is very endearing if a player could go past 3,4 or 5 players effortlessly with elfine grace but football is now more of end product because it’s strictly more results than entertainment even though it could be both. The likes of Patrick Mboma with a terrifying shooting power were never known for dribbles but yet achieved so much and enjoy fever-pitch accolades amongst football fans alike to this day. I do not even believe Olayinka is not good at dribbles but some players are so intelligent and efficient that they hardly engage in needless dribbles… He is always first on his team sheet… e get why?

    Peter Olayinka na baller more suited to centre forward role. He is a fighter. He can do well for Nigeria.

     
  • Greenturf 4 months ago

    Olayinka is not a striker never has.Follow his exploits in Belgium where he played on loan.He is an explosive winger versatile though and has skills strong on the ball and very pacy.
    He was constantly a menace in Belgium where he excelled on loan and his parent club Gent took advantage an sold him to a foreign team.
    Olayinka is a good team player he doesn’t have to play like a Simon or Iwobi showboating is good for the entertainment side of the game but most times are needless.
    He is a regular for a reason wherever he goes.Im not pushing for his super eagles invitation rather it’s Rohr’s to decide but if I were the coach of the super eagles Peter Olayinka would be given equal opportunity to see what he could offer to the team.At least he deserves that chance we all know he does.

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Greenturf… Thanks for the contribution… @Eldridge you too. Peter Olayinka has played more on the left wing for Slavia than in centre forward lone attacker role. I observed his coach so trust him that he is often moved from place to place to further the team’s objective… He is an outstanding teamplayer who can still improve. He destroyed Balogun & Aribo, also Iheanacho & Ndidi… the guy na confirm bad guy for those wey know. Lol…

       
  • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

    Very good @ Jimmyball….I love the analogies you have presented. I am sure you have either consciously or unconsciously selected them so as to draw parallels with the kind of player Peter is. Now would you call those players wingers if their coaches were to instruct them to attack from either the left or right side of the attack….? Olayinka is a perfect replica of the kind of forward Siasia was back then….athletic, explosive workaholic forward who could screen the entire wide spaces behind Yekini, left or right, and still drop into the middle to add numbers there when required. But I bet Siasia’s name cannot be mentioned in the list of Wingers to have ever worn the colours of Nigeria.

    Wingers’ (be it traditional or inverted ) main attributes is usually speed and fleet footedness which is used to attack and dribble past opponent’s full-backs in order to get behind the defence and to then deliver crosses or whip in passes into the centre for their attacking teammates. Outright wingers will often have strong 1-vs-1 skills and operate wide on the shoulders of fullbacks, helping to stretch and pull the opponent’s defense.

    Playing form wide positions, Olayinka often struggles to be a quintessential winger but often flourishes playing as a direct forward. Apart from not having the flair and fancy footwork, the creativity to make successful dribbles and take-ons, the mastery and tendency of wiping in pin-point crosses from the bylines, Olayinka also has too much presence in the box to be thought of as a winger, and this his very evident in the goals:assists ratios for his clubs over the years;

    Skenderbeu – 19:7
    Zulte Varegem – 11:15
    Slavia Praha – 22:14
    Overall – 52goals:36assists.

    Seriously, how many wingers can you list who have almost double the number in career goals than assists.

    According to wikipedia, “….certain managers have been known to use a “wide target man” on the wing, namely a large and physical player who usually plays as a centre-forward, but who will attempt to win aerial challenges and hold up the ball on the flank, or drag full-backs out of position. Jostein Flo epitomizes this role so much so that a tactic was named after him – Flo Pass. Egil Olsen, while managing the Norway national football team, positioned Flo, usually a centre-forward, on the right flank to exploit the opposition full-backs’ lack of aerial abilities. Another example is Mario Mandžukić, a natural centre-forward, who was used on the left flank under manager Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus during the 2016–17 season, as well as the following season….”

    @Greenturf

    the links below shows how Peter has been metamorphosed over the years, with coaches taking advantage of his main competitive advantage….work rate and finishing. They identified a player with such work rate and ability to get finish expertly in the box would best be utilized attacking from wide areas in a “wide forward” role rather than via the centre as a “centre forward”, giving them the opportunity to play another good finisher in the CF role. I bet no natural winger has played as many games as a CF in his career as Peter has and will still do.

    Call him a “wide target man” and you wouldnt be far off the bar, but in all honesty, referring to Olayinka as a winger is undervaluing and unforgivingly misconstruing the abilities the poor guy. Trust me, with the kind of way Rohr’s SE play, Olayinka will struggle with a role as winger.

  • Prof. Tamuno Offiali 4 months ago

    Wouldn’t a good coach want to take advantage of a productive ‘Wide Target Man’ (in your words) with history of goals and assists wherever he’s played and also against quality oppositions; whether in the UCL or Europa Cup than unproductive wing showboaters???

    Olayinka is far more productive and brings more to the table than Samuel Kalu and Simon. He’s hardly injured, assists, scores, more tactically astute than Kalu.

    Football is now big business and thats why most coaches prefer workaholic productive players to entertainers.

     
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Hahahahahaha…..And you think the ones in the national team currently are not productive and workaholic already….??? LMAO. Have you ever heard the cliche you dont fix what isnt broken….??

      Most of the wingers and strikers in d current SE emerged and sealed a place in the SE as far back as before 2019 AFCON, they’ve been part of the team ever since and also have their own superior comparative advantages over Olayinka….and their wing hasnt been broken since then…if you understand what I mean. The day it gets broken, like during this last FIFA window, Olayinka will get his chance.

      Unfortunately at the moment, we are not missing the services of goal scoring, assisting, workaholic and productive wingers at the moment. The fact that in addition to these qualities, the ones currently on ground can also dribble, take defenders on, get behind defenses no matter how tight, showboat and entertain places them higher in the pecking order. Peter will have to offer more than just being a “workaholic” to overturn the cart

      Meanwhile, Olayinka and his protagonists still have to decide if their protege is coming into the SE as a winger or as a Forward. As a winger I beg to say we have better players who can “interpret” that role better in the context of the style of play of the current dispensation. As a full forward there Victor, Paul and an emerging Sadiq are strikers he will have to contend with.

      Olayinka sure deserves a place in the national team, just as Simy, Terrem and others do…..but at WHAT expense and WHOSE expense….? The buck stops at the table of the man who will be fired if things go wrong. He has made his choices, choices which has been working for him thus far….and when he eventually feels like changing the recipe…he will sure do so.

      In a team and position(s) where competition is now so high, Peter has more comparative disadvantages than advantages to those of his competitors.

Lol… I am pleading with you to help me because after reading how much your reasonings and posts mirrors my arguments here always… I am scared before long archers and snippers will tag you another @JimmyBall again walahi! I am yet to see any of your views that does hit home smooth like surgical blade… It did not take me three games to watch Olayinka before I hands up for that boy unicorn… people confusing his roles should go back and review his matches in the last two years in Europe mostly and see how dynamic that turbomanmachine is versatile and efficient… The guy belong die… Lol.

       
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        *… Does not hit home*

         
      • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

        Eyaaaa….what a pity for the boy unicorn and those confusing a forward who attacks from wide as a winger. Unfortunately, his “belong-ness” has not made him ‘winger enough’ nor has it made him ‘Centre forward’ enough for the SE. The day he finally makes up is mind on which of these two he wants to be, then he will be 5 steps closer to a return to the SE.

         
  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    …@Dr.Drey… the much you have written above is commendable. In simplistic terms, I want to believe the era of traditional wingers in the mold of Finidi, Amuneke, Overmars, Dennis Wise, Steve McManamann, and Louis Figo (earlier) is gone. These days what we used to know as wingers are more of Wide Midfielder (Left or Right in a 4-2-3-1 and its variant) or Wide attacker (4-3-3 distinctly). These days the word winger is no more a flying man on the wings but any player from the middle to the upper third section of a team’s attack that occupies that zone of his team’s layout. The emphases on wingers whipping in crosses for target men have translated into the more deadly cutbacks to the edge of the box… the call for opportunities for the likes of Olayinka specifically is related to the total package that the young man brings to a side… Whatever it is perceived he does on the left flank more often than the occasional centre striking role… he does it with efficient poise and I strongly believe, seeing how the likes of Algeria have mastered how to make harmless whatever we have been offering on the flanks… an Olayinkaish tinge to Super Eagle will deliver a potent tincture and refreshing elixir to Super Eagles as built already. One love…

     
    • Prof. Tamuno Offiali 4 months ago

      I agree. Chukwueze for instance has not improved his game. His end product to say the list is abysmal. He wows and infuriates in same measure.

      I watched some clips of a young man and hope he gets his chance in a top 10 league so one can assess him further. His name is Tosin Aiyegun. Power, precision, purposeful and direct!

      I like Samuel Kalu’s skills set; very good with the dead ball just like an Etebo. Only draw back is his injury records. Moses Simon huffs and puffs with no end result. Better tactically than Kalu (helps defence a lot). For me, I will pick Olayinka ahead of Simon on current form. Whether he will fit into the coach’s philosophy is another thing.

      On the right I will want to see Iwobi there ahead of Chukwueze.

      Ofcourse my decision is borne out of the fact that I prefer Etebo in the double pivot as the box to box midfielder(ability to carry the ball further upfield in transition and his tenacity) to an Aribo who I will like to see further upfield in the no 10 role. Cant stand any of Aribo and Iwobi on the bench. I believe the offer more creativity and goal threat than Chukwueze who plays ‘alone'(no sense of awareness at all). Check him and Aina against Benin and even worse with Ebuehi against Lesotho. Doesnt release the ball on time, doesn’t play with his fullback and worst still; doesnt track back to help in defence.

       
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      I beg to disagree with you. The position of the “winger” in modern day football isn’t extinct yet. Though we have several variants now, but traditional wingers are still a necessity, especially for coaches who still fancy tactical set-ups such as the 4-1-4-1 or the flat 4-4-2. We still have the likes of Adama Traore, Jandon Sancho, Gerrard Delofeu, Juan Caudrado, Lucas Vasquez, Willian…..I can go on and on. Up till recently we had the likes of Jesus Navas, Bernard, Walcott, Anthony Valencia etc. Its not a surprise most of these guys are usually super-subs or game changers. These ones will unlock any defense from the wings, with pace and nimble-footedness, no matter how tight.

      Peter is none of these….he’s a forward whose overall efficiency is being maximized by playing him from wide positions. In the words of Sir Alex Ferguson,

      “…When forwards attack from wide to inside, they are far more dangerous. It’s funny when I see centre-forwards starting off in the middle against their markers. Trying to escape and create space from the central actually makes them less dangerous…”

      But this is no way makes them wingers.

       
  • Proudly 9ja 4 months ago

    @Jimmyball and @Greentuft, if you guys say Olayinka is Striker or support striker then I will say I can buy that argument but as a winger, we will have to agree to disagree. As a winger how many crosses has Olayinka delivered for Slavia Prague, how often does he cut in from the wings to unleash a shot, how often does he take on a player 1v1. Again he works hard for the team no doubt and scores the odd goals sometimes which our current wingers do for club as well as country. Jimmyball as Drey said the names you mentioned rossi, inzaghi, Mueller are all strikers/ support strikers, even when Mueller was played in the wing by pep, he was delivering crosses to the box. Your argument will be how many crosses has chukwueze or Kalu delivered and the answer to that is many. Watch olayinka and see for yourself, he is always running thru the middle. He may be versatile ooo but as a winger I will pick the current SE wingers ahead of him if I were the coach. Even in the support striker role, I feel we have better quality than him in all honesty. I don’t see what value he will add to the SE that the guys already there won’t bring. All the wingers track back now even chukwueze, so what additional contribution would he bring, na scoring? Kalu, chukwueze also scores as well. Again I do think he is a fairly decent player but I don’t see him displacing any current SE player both as a support striker, striker or winger but am not GR and I could be wrong.

     
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      You are not wrong my brother. As a CF Osimhen, Onuachu, Sadiq in that order….as a SS he will only have Iheanacho to contend with….as a winger he will need more than “high workrate” to slide past defenders the way our current wingers do.
      I’ve told his promoters severally to promote the boy as a SS and not as a winger but they just wouldnt listen. Ah Shame..!

       
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Proudly 9ja… those names I mentioned should not be confused to refer to Olayinka’s like for like comparison. I know they are strikers… I mentioned those names to draw analogies to you and @Dr.Drey saying Olayinka has no skills like what Chukwueze and Kalu sometimes needlessly show. You specifically said if you were coach Rohr, Olayinka will remain on standby list and that he has nothing regarding skills to take on defenders and execute fanciful dribbles… I never said Mboma or Inzaghi were wingers… I meant those guys hardly do those fancy footstuffs but just play direct and do their job. That they may not have played fanciful like Ronaldo da Lima, Frank Robert or Arjen Robben never made them any less adored by football fans worldwide… If you say Olayinka does not have skills to destabilize defenders… What was he doing against Barcelona and their top defenders like Gerard Pique in champions league of last two season that he shot to popularity amongst Nigerian football fans and even Stars like one of the PSquare guy and also Azizat Oshoala who wrote eulogizingly about the young man afterwards. I mentioned names like Rossi, Inzaghi, Mboma, Yekina to say fancy nifty showboating skills alone should not be the major reason to fence out a guy like Olayinka from Super Eagles duty… You guys keep mentioning
      support striker in reference to Olayinka… how
      often does SE play two strikers upfront since
      Rohr took charge? Why are we Nigerians like this? We like seeing facts and calling it something else… Olayinka plays on the left flank
      more often for Slavia. Make una accept make we rest.

       
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        …@Dr.Drey and @Proudly 9ja… if you guys don’t like the term winger, call him left flanker…hahaha, and if una no like that one make una call him goalkeeper. Me I don go rest…

         
        • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

          Im sorry, this SE isnt built for “flankers”. You either be a ‘winger’ and offer more than ‘workrate’ to displace the wingers in the team or be a full fledge striker and offer more than workrate to displace the strikers in the team. Even you, all you scream about this guy is ‘work rate’ ‘work rate ‘work rate’.
          Enough said already. @Prodly9ja has summed up everything about Olayinka’s game…and in all honesty our current wingers and forwards offer us much more than work rate. That was how you told us Junior Ajayi is better than Iheanacho, Dessers and Onuachu put together and ended up conspicuously omitting his name from your ‘ideal’ 23 man squad. Sometimes I just dont wanna believe you just like misspending your time on things which are unarguable. Lolz

           
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            When corny man die na corny man go bury am… I refuse to allow this discussion about Olayinka become about his position… Support striker, centre forward, midfielder, defender or goalkeeper. No… This discussion is about Olayinka having no skills especially fancy dribbles and trickeries… dear forumites. Whenever @Dr.Drey is cornered he will craftily vamooze from planet Earth after farting loudly with a pervading foul smell and run to Jupiter to spray perfume while Earth continue in rancourous confusion owing to such smelly fart… hahaha. Let everyone be reminded that @Proudly 9ja said Peter Olayinka lacks skills especially fancy dribbles and @De.Drey said exactly, it was his own shared opinion too… before I mentioned plethora of outstanding A-list former football players who were never known for the glitzy skills in football yet are icons till tomorrow even though, me personally disagree that Olayinka has an abundance of his own skills… abi una don forget him turnup against Barcelona Gerrard Pique just two seasons ago for chamlions league? Lol… Infact, I want to personally thank @Dr.Drey for putting out the most obvious stats for Peter Olayinka that even does far more to push for him in Super Eagles than anything I have ever posted about him here… this was so glossy that @Prof.Tamuno Offiali could not even help and had to ask @Dr.Drey if his beautiful and well-researched stats on Olayinka should not even be the more reason for Rohr to draw the young into firm Super Eagles embrace? Say because your idea of a player’s ability dey skewed from another person own no mean say na you know as e suppose the go pass? It surprises me how Peter Olayinka’s juju hold Slavia Prague’s very seasoned coach wey be oyinbo and yet e no fit confuse him own brothers like @Dr.Drey and @Proudly 9ja… Lol. Peter Olayinka otumokpo na only Whiteman head e the work… I am having the feeling it will soon work on Coach Rohr… hahaha. One love guys….

            Hehehehe…uncle flanker, weldone…are you done mesmerizing yourself with your out-for-the-count jargons…LMAO…or should we hold our breahte for more? Very good.

            Now, before you implode into your usual frustration-induced malicious rage…..LMAO….let me quickly break this bad news to you that if you like let Olayinka transform to being a corn-flakes….the fact remains it will take a miracle for him to start a game in a SE shirt either as a winger or as striker. There’s more to being an international than ‘workrate’ or truning Gerrard Pique 2 seasons ago….LMAO. Our other wingers are offering same and much more week in week out already, in their clubs and in the national team. The boy was in the same SE camp pre Brazil friendly against the likes of Simon, Iwobi, Chukwueze, and Dennis…and even Dennis still managed to prove worthy enough to be higher the pecking order ahead of him…..LMAO.

            Olayinka is like an halfcast…not black enough to be black, and not white enough to be Oyinbo. He can the god of Slavia, but for the SE, he is not winger enough to be winger ahead of other natural wingers, neither is he striker enough to be striker ahead of other natural strikers. I put those stats out there to once again clamp up your ignorance of what type of player Olayinka primarily is…..a FORWARD. Yea….an out and out forward, who like Martial, Auba, Sanchez attacks the goal from wide and not a winger or left midfielder…LMAO.

            I dont know which one hurts you the most, whether its the fact that you know deep down in your heart that Olayinka cannot displace any of Osimhen, Onuachu or Sadiq OR that once all our wingers a back and fit another place on the standby list is furthest he can go for now….LMAO.

            I know it hurts….LMAO….yea
            the truth always does….so DEAL WITH IT….LMAO. Vex sofry say this *f—–g*Dr.Drey (as your aliases dey call me) don spoil your market once again…..LMAO

            @Dr.Drey… My friend despite hitting the ground hard with a loud thud… is still kicking even though writhing in agonizing pains. Hehe hehe… god of Soccer has a way of doing his magic on unrepentant naysayers always… You have started with standby list again… Ok o! The same standby list you choke poacher Onuachu on, calling him longinus who comes into a match to crumble Super Eagles attack… that he eventually crumbled your own attack against him is what you are sounding again… you have come with standby list again to chain turbomanmachine Olayinka… as your very good friend, I won’t caution you again because you don’t listen to advice… the heading wey Olayinka take destroy Leon Balogun and his team no fear you, you don come the beat chest got the real Gerard Pique nemesis again… toh! No problem… Wait till next week, after Olayinka destroy Arsenal finish we go look for you again… just wait! You will personally use your hand to write letter of employment on behalf of Ahmed Musa to Gernot Rohr to offer him the position of Super Eagles training jersey drycleaner… Lol. Since your nonplaying captain no want to sign for any NPFL side to get back active and prefer the exercise wey him the do just inside him oza room… Lol. Peter no send Uche face one bit… Ball know im people. One love…

    @Jimmyball, honestly abeg tell me other than possibly probably heading due to his 6ft frame and workrate what else can Olayinka bring to the SE that the current SE wingers don’t already offer. Na passing, abi na shooting abi na scoring? As poor as chukweze’s final decision making according to some people (including myself) is, he is a bigger threat to opposition than Olayinka in my view. Thesame can be said about Kalu or Simon. E get the time wen him do one legover move against arsenal, laff been wan kee me as he reminded me of the legover onuachu did against Sierra Leone and fell yakata lol. I swear if olayinka had don that legover on that SL field he would have been injured I swear lol. Am not in anyway trying to belittle his quality ooo but d guy nor just do am for me. If GR decides to throw him an invitation I will still support him as I am a fan of SE 1st and foremost. Cheers bro
