    Hehehehehe……they have nothing to say again….now they say “its just FIFA rankings” as if it is the sizes of their empty skulls FIFA is ranking…..LMAO.

    For anyone’s information, the last time we were ranked higher than this was in February 2010, after AFCON, wen we were ranked 15th.

    From there we were dragged down to 70th (and 17th in Africa) where Rohr met us and within 3 yrs is almost undoing the destruction that took 7yrs. Then we were in d same level with d likes of Albania, Honduras, UAE, China, but now were are in the same whatsapp group with the likes of Japan (highest ranked in Asia), Senegal (Highest ranked in Africa), USA (2nd in Concacaf), Peru (Copa America runners up), Turkey, Ukraine etc.

    Agents of backwardness will come and tell us “it is because we now have good players”. We didn’t have good players between 2010 and 2017…….LMAO

    It is only a matter of when, and not if, laurels will start rolling in. 2020 Olympics would have been it, but 2021 AFCON is within touching distance. If dem like make dem pursue Rohr, Na dem sabi. My own is if his replacement doesn’t have a better record than him, we will definitely head back where we came from.

    But as it stands now, let all those who claim Rohr has done Nothing argue with FIFA, CAF, IFFHS and all the Stats on ground.

    Enough said already…!

     
  • Up Rohr Up Nigeria!

    I would have commented on the subject but some economic clowns are here disliking your opinion even if you are right just to happy themselves. The typical Nigerian Political spirit that is why we are where we are today. Drey just apply more cleanliness to your ways it will help you and your Cabals or moving chalatans!

    If naija wins we all win and when we loose wether those who are in support or against the team we will all suffer the pain of the lose so you guys should grow up and quit the line of imbecile!

      I don’t hundred percent agree with you Chima, but I liked your comment. Some people just think it is only their opinion that counts.

      Nigeria will keep moving up in the rankings, and we will all rejoice.

      Ride on bro.

       
  • What’s your point man’

    Well it didn’t stop me disliking though…

    If you want to attack any body, let it be the NFF

     
  • Who is To again?

    • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

      Eactly another clone of Drey disliking comments association just to happy themselves that you don’t share same opinion.

       
      • Dr. Drey 2 weeks ago

        Hehehehehe….Ekene, why does this sound like what you were doing here a few days ago…LMAO.

        You think everyone is an attention seeking Coward like you….?

        If I hide my ID, can I also hide my writing signature or my thought process….? Lolz

        That’s what your ilk don’t understand…that even IF sniffing out your IP identities prove difficult at times, your writing signature (which are like DNAs) will always give you out.

        Ask any reviewer or editor. LMAO

    WE NIGERIANS SHOULD PLEASE STOP INSULTING OR RAINING CURSES ON OURSELVES BECAUSE OF DIFFERENCE IN OPINIONS . WE HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF SEEING THE SAME SITUATION. PEOPLE WHO SAID ROHR IS NOT PERFORMING SEE IT THAT ANY AVERAGE COACH CAN PERFORM LIKEWISE IF GIVEN THE NECESSARY SUPPORT HE HAS BEEN GIVEN. WHILE ON THE OTHER HAND PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT ROHR HAVE POINTS AS IT IS EVIDENCE FROM HIS ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR . EITHER LEFT OR RIGHT WE ARE BOTH RIGHT. NOW TO MY OWN SUBMISSION I THINK IN THE AREA OF MAN MANAGEMENT ROHR IS INDEED SUPERB HOWEVER IN THE AREA WHERE IT MATTERS IN THE FIELD OF PLAY I THINK HE HAS NOT GOTTEN IT FULLY. ONLY RECENTLY ROHR ADMITTED THAT NIGERIA HAS JUST GOT A STYLE OF PLAY AND THAT HE CAN NIW START USING OUR WINGERS WHICH IS SOMETHING MOST OF US HAVE BEEN SAYING FOR THE OAST TWO YEARS . I THINK ROHR IS GRADUALLY LEARNING NIGERIA STYLE OF PLAY .
