    I sincerely hope Finidi succeed but a coach is as good as his current/last result. If he was that tactically sound, then he should have done something worthwhile with Enyimba after the abridged league gave him the title.
    In the CAF champions league, he didn’t show anything neither in the friendlies he handled.

    I wish him the best of luck

  • Finidi Is not the man. for the Job, He has already started deluding himself that NPFL players are the solution to Bring us a WC ticket HAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! it has started.. LOOOOOL!..He is opening camp now for Home based players as the NFF have tasked him to bed NPFL players in SE my question is Who will they dispose off. Meanwhile Serious Countries lke Senegal Ivory Coast, South Africa, Ghana you name it have tasked their coaches to go to Europe and see where they can Find some Dual Nationals to bolster their squads it is this Deluded Country named Nigeria that NPFL players who might I add Have not even Sniffed a CAF Champions Leage Knock out or even Confederations cup Knock outs for more than 24 yrs since the likes of Enyeama, Okonkwo, Nwaneri and co dawned the Enyimba Jersey that will come and rescue us while Countries that have their clubs Dominating CAF club comps are searching the Strongest leagues in the World to bolster their chances we that are blessed with Top talents in those leagues have reverted to looking in. Is this not a curse.

    Mind you I hve no problem with Local based players but, Why can Nigeria not do things the correct way. These NPFL players especially now when they are so weak Continentally should Earn thier stripes in CHAN first what is this SE and Local players Debat? it really makes me sick and makes no sense at all.

    Mr George Finidi look here oga I hope this camp you are opening for Homebased players is for CHAN team. Please Oga do not play with Super Eagles. We as fans have no patients now especially with our Golden Generation!

      NFF Kalo Kalo put Finidi there. We have better coaches. Nigeria we hail thee

  • I’m not exactly convinced with Finidi, although I think he has potential. We’ll await to see the assistants and backroom staff he and the confused NFF come up with.

    Then maybe I can raise my confidence level to 70%. For now it’s between 45 -55%. Barely a pass.

    • Kel, I don’t really understand your post here. How can you be convinced about a coach with limited to no track record at this level?

      At the stage at which our football is, the Super Eagles needed a tried and test coach in international football (whether the coach had been successful prior – success is not a criteria, just to have experience). Instead, the NFF in their infinite wisdom gave us spring chicken.

      There are no two ways about it: Finidi is an experiment and a gamble.

      Having missed out on the last world cup and then come stronger in Afcon to reach the final, NFF decide to place the team in the hands of a coach learning the ropes in international football!

      It’s almost like entrusting car keys and a bottle of whiskey in the hands of a teenager who just passed their driving test.

      So, it is understandable for expectations to be rock bottom.

      However, that is just one side of the coin.

      On the other side, it will be just premature to simply write Finidi off. If he is smart, he will pull out all the stops to make a success of this appointment. So, I am very angry with the NFF but lend my full support to Finidi to prove everyone wrong.

      Finidi hasn’t done anything wrong to me, he didn’t give himself the job. I will always pray for him. The good thing is that I will now approach Super Eagles games with very low expectations which in a way is very liberating.

      Again, good luck to Finidi. With focus, hard work, dedication, shrewdness and good judgement, he might just deliver the goods against all odds.

      Whether Finidi succeeds or not, shame on NFF as really, this is not the time to gamble; this is not the time for experimentation.

        @deo, please cut finidi a slack, how many more years must he coach before being considered for a proper Job. Mind you southgate was hired with losing record, and has still yet to win anything in 9 years as coach of the 3 lions. And their are many more out there.

      • @deo, on the same page with you. On Finidi, I’m on the fence. Not just buying it no matter how hard I try. The irresponsible NFF just made a fiasco of this whole thing and the blame lies squarely at their doorsteps of their shattered glass house.

        They took the country on a merry go round that ended at exactly where they started. A useless journey to nowwhere after all the pomp and ceremony of adverts, shortlistings, and intrigues. Devilish and incredibly greedy cult-group. the NFF.

        The only glimmer of hope I’m latching on is to see the assistants they give the coach – if it doesn’t take them forever or another 2 months to find another person(s) that had been sitting right next to them all the while.

        Finidi started well agaisnt Ghana, but his selections and tactics in the next match where his team were embarrasingly underwhelming and roundly outplayed by a lower ranked Mali leaves much to be desired. We can only keep fingers crossed and wish him the best.

    Finidi is not the popular choice for the job. But he is now there.
    While we wholeheartedly condemn NFF for once again taking the cheap, easy route, we have to give the coach and his players the support they need.
    I believe Finidi wants to make his mark, so he will do everything possible to succeed.
    Even more important, the players would hate to defer their world cup aspirations to 2030. Players like Osimhen, Boni, Lookman, Ekong, Aina, Iwobi, Ndidi, etc are all desperate to attend the world cup. So coach or no coach, these guys will do all they can to qualify. As long as Finidi selects STRICTLY ON MERIT, we have a good chance.
    However, if he selects based on sentiment or other non-merit parameters, the world cup ticket is gone, OTILO. NO TRACES.
    Our local players are good. Let them distinguish themselves at the CHAN level, before they are allowed to come mix it with the big boys. If a home based player is the best we have for a position, of course he should be invited, BECAUSE HE IS THE BEST. Merit based selection is all about picking the best players, without regard to their tribe, background, or where they play their football. Their ability on the pitch and fitness level is what decides who is selected.
    After we have hopefully managed to qualify for the world cup, the next thing to consider is can Finidi hold his own in tactical battles with the best of the best tacticians on the planet that he is going to meet at he world cup? If we meet Belgium for instance, can Finidi stand toe to toe with Roberto Martinez?
    Finidi the player was world class. No argument there. But Finidi the coach? Let’s wait and see!
    A few other reminders. To maximize his chances of success, Finidi must get along with the players. He must put this reported rift with Lookman to bed. Give him a call and have a chat with him, Tella and others. Assure them that they are key to his plans, and use them wisely. Rotate the squad to prevent burnout. We all saw how Osimhen was used to exhaustion at the last Afcon. Rotation keeps players fresh, and when players are fresh, they perform at their highest level. For instance, if Finidi invites 4 strikers, namely Osimhen, Boni, Lookman and Orban, and he starts 2 of them, in the second half, sub them out and bring in the other 2. This will work because all 4 strikers are deadly and capable. Finidi should make wise use of all resources at his disposal to achieve team goals.
