Iwobi Tipped To Be Frozen Out At Everton After Poor Display Vs Southampton

Iwobi Tipped To Be Frozen Out At Everton  After Poor Display Vs Southampton

Former England international Paul Robinson has stated that Alex Iwobi will find it difficult to play on a regular basis at Everton following his poor display in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Southampton.

Robinson insisted that Iwobi did not take” his chance in the absence of Richarlison in what was a “very disappointing” loss to Southampton.

The 24-year-old made his first start of the campaign in the absence of Richarlison but failed to make much impact in the game.

The Nigeria international was replaced at half-time by Brazil winger Bernard.

Robinson says that the substitution at the break “tells you a lot” about the manager’s thoughts on the player.

“Iwobi is going to find it difficult to break into this Everton team after his display at the weekend,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“He was given his opportunity against Southampton and he did not take it, which is evident from Ancelotti’s bringing him off at half time.

“Everton were very disappointing and that was a game that they would have earmarked to win.

“Iwobi was given his opportunity in a team that was playing really well, let’s not forget. He was was not brought into a side that was struggling. This was a team that was top of the league and undefeated.

“It was not like he was not expected to be the star performer so it was a real opportunity missed for him. It tells you a lot if the manager drags you at half-time.”

  • The whole team was rubbish, no need to criticize just 1 player.

    Can everyone cut iwobi a slack?.

    Was he the only one in the team
    If they play well, they will praise James Rodriguez, if they lose they will blame iwobi. He played only 46 mins, why did the other person that played no score?

    Abegi, spare me this story

    Ade and Truth, thanks so much for your comments. Don’t mind them. If their mouth is smelling, they will blame Iwobi too for that. Iwobi is to blame for every bad thing going on in their lives!
    Iwobi did ok WITHOUT BEING SPECTACULAR. The guy is no Messi or CR7. But he is good at doing what he does.
    Iwobi, keep working hard on your game. Add goals and assists to your game, and you will be alright!

    When a man dislikes another man, he looks for every avenue to critique and  condemn that person.

    Who made this nuthead paul Robinson a spokesman for Carlos (Everton coach)?

    As an ex England international,  how many trophies or high profiled soccer matches can Paul Robinchild boost of?

    The Bernard that came to replace Alex, Na how many goals he score to make Everton win?

    Some people like Paul no get sense at all !!!
    Envy on stupid persons !!!

  • Just because he had a bad day at the office, was he the only one on the field? What were the contribution of his teammates. Even after being substituted why didn’t the team improve or atleast score a goal then you can say he was the weak link. Me thinks your still vexing that iwobi is an international star with Nigeria and not England and your looking for every way to bring him down in the eyes of the English fans as if to say we didn’t lose anything by losing him to Nigeria.
    Iwobi is a star and he will continue to shine whether you like it or not.

    It’s easy to pick a black African and make him a scapegoat.You right the manager may not start him in future games because he would take all the blame for a loss like others were fantastic on the night.It’s very easy to turn a blind eyes for wrongdoings of a white man but take notice of a black African dude’s.

    Everton were to lose that game regardless.It’s just a bad day and everyone and that includes the coaching crew should take responsibility.
