Iwobi Happy With New Arrivals At Everton

Alex Iwobi says the quality exhibited by the Toffees new arrivals on the training pitch amazes him and is happy with how they are making impact in games.

Midfield trio James Rodriguez, Allan and Allan Dacoure linked up with the Merseyside club before the start of the campaign.

The new arrivals have all featured in all of three Everton’s three Premier League matches so far and have helped the team to three victories in the league on the trot.

Iwobi stated that the new boys are displaying the same quality on the training pitch that they have been showing in competitive matches.

The 24-year-old is wowed by the standard exhibited by the new arrivals and also added that he is making the most of the opportunity to share the dressing room with the elite players.

“The new players have really been welcomed in properly. They are employing their time here. It just shows, we are one big family,”Iwobi told Everton’s official website.

“You look at Allan and he can’t speak the most English at the moment, but we’re still able to talk to him-it’s great for us.

”You can see their quality when they ‘re playing. And we see it in training every day- it stil amazes me.

“Really, it’s amazing to see in training, let alone in matches.

“They are helping us as a team, and with the experience they ‘ve got, they ‘re helping other players. I’m still learning from each player.”

    *** Samu starting from the bench again in today’s game against Atletico Madrid? Nawaoh, this is serious !!!

    • Unicorn 3 years ago

      Purely what he deserves. Now he will get more serious before he gets back to the starting X1. He’s too social of recent. Always updating pics and repost on IG. I don’t know what is wrong this our upcoming talents

    Just watching the crystal palace-Chelsea game, one thing u have to give dat Eze boy is the fact that he is fearless and isn’t scared of taking set pieces. He has only been with crystal palace and whenever they have a set piece no one other than him takes it. That shows his quality. There was one move that he did to Kante and kante fell yakata for ground as if him 4get something for floor. As much as I dont think 9ja should beg him to play for SE, his addition in the midfield will be lit. In him we will have a confirmed set piece taker not all those “hope and pray” set pieces that players like etebo (who by d way u wont see attempt set pieces for his club) and others in the SE try. It shows during training he has proven to the coaching staff and players of crystal palace that he (Eze) can be do it. This is what members of the SE should be doing for dia respective clubs. Drogba learnt this and became one of the best freekick takers in Chelsea. Just my thoughts tho. I wish personally that GR was brave enough to give Amoo a chance, he is someone to watch out for. I blif he has already broken into the 1st team of his club same as Tijani. I know the argument will be that he is young, he doesnt play in a top 5 league, he needs time etc, but am of the opinion that players like these should be blooded early to help dia development albeit in friendly matches. If u are good enough u are old enough. I also have to comment GR for been brave enough to hand tijani a call up even though I think it was due to convenience, but still GR should be commended for dat bravery. Also people should cut chukwueze some slack, he is only 22 or therefore, we all remember when we were that age and all d grooving we did, his lack of starting might be solely strategic and not chkwueze’s bad performance against Barca. People are comparing Fati of Barca to chukwueze, that is really unfair in my opinion, one can’t compare the calibre of players in Barca to dat of villareal. Does any player in villareal other than chukwueze command 2 players marking him any time he gets d ball? Look at Barca, they have messi who attracts multiple defenders leaving the likes of fati free to wreak havoc. they have coutinho, griezmann etc, who villareal get? Villareal last season punched over their weight if we are to be honest, remember they barely survive relegation 2 seasons ago if am not mistaken. Take chukwueze to Barca and he will surpass fati in my opinion. Fati has been in Barca for many years and got his soccer education there from a very young age but our own dazzler probably played without soccer shoes in umuahia for many years, na street educate d boy. So abeg guys I know everyone wants the best for the young boy and want him to constantly keep improving but let’s be a little bit less critical when these boys dont perform in some games. Just a foud for thought imho

      Set piece roles are assigned to particular players by coaches,you don’t just go and take responsibilities unless you are assigned to it.That’s why particular players take penalty another take charge of freekicks or in some cases if you are the best in training for free kick,penalty and corner kicks then you will most likely assume responsibilities of this roles during match.

      So do not blame our players for not having the confidence to take responsibilities of set piece in their clubs rather it’s because they have players who are better and were given the responsibility for those important roles.

      Eze may have impressed in training that’s why he’s assigned the responsibility by Roy Hodgson.

  • Chukwueze is not ready, that’s the truth and we must accept it.
    The fact that we gave him a smooth and easy ride to our starting XI was not also good for his development.
    If I were the coach he may hardly make my 23-man squad. He needs to grow up with his play.

    My bro, sorry I disagree with you concerning give chukwueze a smooth and easy right to the SE, I blif he came and delivered causing GR to not have a choice but to include him. Who is currently better than him in that position? I dont think we have a viable alternative. In the SE, can u count how many players are left footed and plays dat position. He needs to add more to his game (scoring, freekicks etc) no doubt but saying he got an easy ride to SE is not fair to him and d coach. Just my thought though.

    i think our problem is not the players but how they play if we have boys like saka in our midfield i think we are on the right position
