“Fit again and making an impact in his first start of the season!” reads a tweet on the club’s Twitter handle.

    Wow against Crystal palace. Great game to see. Hopefully and interestingly looking forward to see a match up of ALEXANDER THE KING IWOBI against English boy ‘Eze’ though that sounds pretty much Igbo lolz. EZE good player no doubt but not one to lose sleep after, yet happy to have in the SE team if he chooses.

      its really strange how some people think. Growing up I was taught that you dont throw baby away along with the dirty water. Also you smack with one palm while you quickly pat the back with the other. My conscience will not find peace if irrationally criticise a player like Iwobi ,Victor Moses etc both of whom, went public almost shouting out loud, how proud they are to represent nigeria over England,something that didnt go down well with most english football fans over here. So how then when these players need us to reciprocate pride in them, we are rather so quick in choosing to castigate them. Truth is, words decieve but tone of words or statement offers much to intents.

    Looking forward to this encounter between Eze and Iwobi. I personally think Iwobi will come up trumps. Those comparing Iwobi with Eze are being disrespectful in my humble opinion. Iwobi has been playing at the highest levels for club and country over the past 5 years. To be comparing him with an English Championship Player who only has minutes of Premier League football experience is unfair. Iwobi has delivered at the highest levels. However it will be fun to see how both players perform.

    So glad and happy to see Alex back to fitness and playing again !!
    Players like Iwobi are always a coach’s delight !!!
    Such players are not fanciful or flashy but when you have them in your team, they follow your instructions and get the job done!!!
    Tactical and disciplined!!

    Garuba Lawal, Thompson Oliah, John Obi Mikel, Moses Kpakor, Nduka Ogbade, Alex Iwobi….these are players that a coach will thrive specific tasks to do and they will go into the pitch and execute !!!

    Alex Iwobi will always be in my heart … simply for that goal against Zambia that took us to the World Cup with a game to spare !!!

    Alex Iwobi did great. He’s got the message now. With Ancelotti being his coach at Everton FC, he’ll definitely up his game to prove that he belongs in the coaches plans. Making the coach himself to have second thoughts and also making him (Alex) to really improve in his technique as a player.

    Iwobi will remain a valuable player to any team in the world because of his unique playing style. He fits into many attacking tactics that any coach wants to deploy.
    I stand to be corrected but his record in goals and assist for SE speaks a volume.
    I believe the current level of competition in Everton will only bring out the best in Iwobi.
