  • You deserve it

    Congrats Nacho. You acted like a typical Argentine or Uruguayan player in conjuring that last second winner in a tightly contested game. You need to produce more of these heroic performances consistently in order to get suitors that befit your talent by summer. Your stay at LCFC is long over due….if you know what I mean.

      Haba, Dr Toto, na so insult full your mouth like this? You are not behaving like a New Jersey educated doctor. Look at your learned colleague Dr Oderinde. Does he ever hurl insults at others the way you do? This is one of the reasons he is faaar better than you at the moment. If you want to be better than him, rein in the insults.
      I am no saint myself. I have been forced to insult others sometimes, something I do not enjoy. So I understand the desire to avenge yourself, or to put an offender/aggressor in their place. However, as a licensed, practicing doctor, a higher standard of behavior is expected from you. Please do not let your good friends Dr Oderinde and my humble self down. Thanks!

        Pompei i am putting the idiot where he belongs because he is an asshole. He talks too much and doesn’t know how to read people’s opinion, since he is good at insulting and twisting people’s word then i am here to unmasked him. When he stops the fooling I will kindly let him off the hook. For now he’s an asshole

  • This guy keeps coming back. This shows he is an exceptional talent. He has it in him.

  • Kelechi,you need keep it up. So you can step in for Hardy abstinence. You are young .

    Kelechi is exceptional.. Perhaps just needs a network of trainers or professional support staff to aid him.

    Congratulations Iheanacho..

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Well said Francesco. Ronaldo on my mind with all his support staff from nutritionist to sleep therapist. If Kelechi will invest in that, and especially in a sports psychologist or even a very good life coach, I know that guy will break records.

        LMAO redemption time.

        • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

          LOL… I get your drift. But this is the real Dr. Drey. This is not nurse Drey the houseboy and boyfriend of Rohr.
