    Ighalo wins first club career title I remember the last time I told someone that any team that depends on Ighalo for Gold will sink in dreamland anyway thank God we have Osimhen and other raising starlets now who cares about Ighalo!!!!

    • Torino 5 years ago

      I don’t mean any harm but your comment is not fair on Ighalo. Even if you have Osimhen, it doesn’t write off the history Ighalo has made. Today, we all need to rejoice with him. If you dont care, his club and loved ones care. That’s all

      Hahahahaha…..Even you that is talking what have your ever won in your life….Where is your Isaac Success that is FAR BETTER than Ighalo today….??? LMAO.

      Hate him all you can, but Ighalo retired as the deadliest Striker in Africa and the 4th all time top scorer for Nigeria. Lolz

        Drey I am not surprised since you started your dislike madness and I kept quiet so airing this strong opinion of mine has triggered you out of your hole. My main G is Obagoal who’s career was blissful Isaac success is just an unfortunate love story. 
        Now down to my main point before I get roasted alive, Ighalo is not a striker that can fetch Gold at any major tournament and history proves me right that any team who depends on him as a main striker gets roasted in the shadow of his hide and seek goals and he always to fail when it matters.

        I don’t need likes or any support as regards my opinion coz the simple truth hurts.

        • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

          Hehehhehe…I can see this like and dislike thing is really paining you to your marrows, that’s why you think everyone is a sissy like you as if likes define your destiny…LMAO.

          Who has time for your likes or dislikes.

          Congratulations to you for having a main G like obagoal….it is this same you that has always come here to rant that SE players are mediocre….all of a sudden, out of the blues, obagoal has become your main G. First time you are even making mention of him on any topic on this forum.

          I know you must have searched hard to find 1 Nigerian striker who won tons of laurels just to back up your hatred for Ighalo. Pls after Martins, which other one won tons of laurels in his career..? Yakubu..? Utaka..? Odemwingie..? Ogbuke..? Or are these ones too mediocre players….??

          Because it is only you that seems not to be a mediocre…since your are the richest in your family as you always boast…LMAO….every other person is mediocre.

          Wether you are happy about it or not….Ighalo won a club title in his career as the leading marksman of his team.

          Ntoorr…Shame to bad people

          Deal with that….LMAO

          Show us what you, yes you, show us what you’ve ever won in your life before pointing your mediocre fingers at who won and didn’t win anything in their careers.

          • Chima E Samuels 5 years ago

            And sad I forget to mention because I realized you are bent on misleading your gullible followers that Ighalo is the marksman at his club and yet he was benched at finals leading to this gold please you can fool your cabals and not everyone because if Ighalo was choosen to start I am very sure they will not win this trophy.

            You are free to cover your trash talk with another lies just to carry on the banner of confusionist with loads of unrelated statistics. Who cares coz only a fellow mediocre mind will clap for another when they spit trash.

    Nigeria needs the super great Ighalo now. He is the best of our time.

  • Omo9ja 5 years ago

    Oh my lovely Ędoman, where have you been my friend? I missed you so much.

    However, I appreciate Ighalo efforts and his achievements but Ighalo is not the kind of Striker Nigeria ever needed in the Super Eagles team.

    I love him as a person but he is not a national team player. We had some players like that before him.

    For instance, Akwegbu and Indubusi or so.

    When we are talking about good strikers for Nigeria at the moment,

    Adi will be on the list.
    Cyriel Dessers will also make the list.
    How about Fatai Alashę?

    Should I keep going?

    We have players everywhere.

    I have bn asking this question for a while and I’m going to ask Nigerians now.

    Why Super Eagles doesn’t have three best goalkeepers under coach Rohr’s tenure?

    Why the gaffer were relying on Ighalo until he got injured?

    Why the coach over relying on Uzoho until the guy injured?

    He doesn’t have any replacement for Uzoho but Akpeyi?

    Story long short, we don’t need the service of Ighalo likewise Akpeyi.

    I’m always happy for Ighalo because in the end, God has crowned his efforts.

    I am going to say this before it is too late.

    Coach Rohr should search for another strikers. We need competition in the team. The players will be very serious if there’s competition.

    But I don’t think Oga Rohr is thinking that way. He is very predictable. What of if our opponents clipped down Osimeh or our wingers like Algeria did to our wingers? I hope you people are seeing what I’m seeing ba?

    Congratulations to Ighalo because, this is calls for a celebration.

    So my lovely friend Edoman, nice to hear from you today. God bless us all. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • @Omo9ja, here’s the performance of you beloved strikers…
    *Fenendo Adi
    *FC Cincinnati
    1 goal in 12 appearances

    *Fatai Slashed
    * FC Cincinnati
    1 goal in 11 appearances…
    I have a name for you….

    • I mean “Fatai Alashe”

    • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

      Hahahahaha….Pls leave that guy. He seems to have a serious brain box malfunction. Fatai Alashe ko…..Kamoru Onikoko ni.

      Strikers like Dennis,Olayinka and others who are playing in top leagues and in UCL are still there, where are struggling to find space for them in the team, it is his 1 goal in a decade MLS strikers that we should be chasing all around.
