    All you Pathetic Ighalo haters, eat shit. Ighalo is still far better than some of the current Super Eagles strikers. If hating is rice, you people will never go hungry.

    It can be exhausting being a Nigerian, the majority are responsible for the predicament of the entire nation. A player scores a brace in a poor league like the Saudi league and all of a sudden he is better than those playing in tougher leagues like serie a,EPL , bundleliga, championat, laliga.

    Is common entrance tougher than a levels? Some body passed common entrance and you are comparing him to an a level student. Where is the analytical thinking for goodness sake! Even politically , it is the same thing, they are incapable of making sound judgement.

    Awoniyi was coveted by Dortmund, Sadiq by Ajax and Benfica, Osimhen is Osimhen, Dessers carried feyenord on his back to the europa conference league and it is Ighalo that shouldnbe ahead in the pecking order? It is a big shame!

      Some individuals here are best ignored. I completely agree with you and we have to be grateful that sycophants like these don’t govern our football but we still have some sickos in the glass house but can you imagine such utterance. 

       
    • God will bless and reward you and your family for this your comment…….Infact sometimes I feel these people are just witches and wizards who are against the progress of the nation…….They know the truth but they chose to turn their back at it and embrace midiocrity……..What do they stand to gain in all this is what I don’t know……. Nigeria has a long way to go my brother…….with the mindset of our so called leaders of tomorrow our future as a nation is very bleak to say the least

    LMFAO!

    It is BETTER to have your BRAIN UNDER your FEET cos you might notice that you STEPPING on it or some GOOD SAMARITAN might DRAW your ATTENTION to it and then you can PICK it up and HAND it over to a GOOD SURGEON. I BET you something can still be done with it..

    LMFAO!

    But some PEOPLE who have their BRAIN ATTACHED to their ANUS is as GOOD as being BRAINLESS cos as soon as they FART or use the RESTROOM, my DEAR is GONE…

    LMFAO!!!!

     
    • @MONKEY YANSH IT IS MOKEY”S LIKE YOU THAT DECEIVE THE COACH WITH BAD INTENTIONS TELL ME DICK HEAD? WHAT IS IGHALO COMING BACK TO DO. IS IT TO ONCE AGAIN TAKE THE PLACE OF A 24 yr OLD AWONIYI WHO HAS JUST BEEN SIGNED TO THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE. THE SAME AWONIYI WHO CANNOT EVEN MAKE THE TEAM AT THE MOMENT (ONLY A MATTER OF TIME). SO IF AWONIYI CANNOT MAKE THE CUT WHAT MAKES YOUR MONKE BRAIN THINK IGHALO CAN. IT IS CALLS LIKE YOURS THAT MADE EGUAVOEN MAKE A DEADLY MISTAKE TO TAKE IGHALO TO GHANA PLAYOFFS AND WHEN IGHALO CAME ON WE ALL SAW HOW SLOW HE WAS TO THE HIGHER STANDARD OF INTERNATIONAL BALL WHICH IS LEVELS ABOVE SAUDI ARABIA. MONKE BRAIN YOU ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT TO SUPER EAGLES FAN BASE A NO GOOD SABOTAGING PIECE OF MONKEY SHIT!…

      INSTEAD OF USING YOUR IDIOTIC BRAIN TO TYPE SENSE YOU CONTINUOUSLY SPEW RUBBISH HERE. I PITTY YOU RREALLY

    You spoke well. Ighalo is fantastic. Has Ighalo not played in England or Spain? Is Ighalo not a proven goals scorer? If hating was electricity, a lot of people would have been electrocuted. Ighalo haters can kiss my arse.

     
    • MONKEY POST 5 months ago

      LMFAO!

      Thank you my BROTHER. We are even talking about NATIONAL FOOTBALL here in which IGHALO but some people are mentioning SADIQ was CONVETED by AJAX AWONIYI by DORTMUND (HE later ended in NF. Laughable..) all SPECULATION.. LMFAO!!

       
  • Well done Ighalo… You did well for SE and I think your chapter with SE is closed and left on a good note. SE is in very capable hands without Ighalo. we have alot more formidable players. All the best Odion Jude Ighalo with your club career you have served your country well
