    Iwobi’ s turnaround is amazing, I wanted to see how he would perform against his Nigerian brothers in Crystal palace but he did not dissapoint . The midfield of Obama, gueye and iwobi was too much for eze and olise. IWOBINHO outclassed them.

    Keep it up Iwobi, I love this new version.

  • Golden Child 2 years ago

    Arsenal should seriously consider getting him back. His energy is amazing. The pressing, vision , football iq, passing, boy! He is very good.

    I believe he is easily Everton’s best player.

    I think he is playing like Ronaldinho, he will be at future time with top World playmakers; Arsenal has lost expensive jewel; Iwobi God bless you , stand strong and clever guy for your team.

    Two assists. Not too shabby!
    That second assist, the backheel, just brilliant.

      Well said Brodaman Pompei. The second assist was very good.

  • Iwobi brings a lot of Energy into the Midfield……His decision making is wonderful and Lampard has moved him to the position that will make him more dangerous……The free role or the number 10 role……he moves around the field injecting attacking urgency into every play…..Iwobi gives his team an attacking impetus which is exactly what Everton needs now.

    Thought Eze and olisie is better than him ungrateful country

    • Footballfanatic 2 years ago

      Those boys kinda over hyped…..Why hasn’t Olise been invited to the French squad…Eze’s talk about preliminary invitations to the WC squad is either to be used as a training material or Audio invitation……Tomori and Abraham are not even guaranteed to make the squad..

    • @Agbo Maxwell what did you mean? Did you know how many fans here who are praying for His(Iwobi) revival.

      Go and verify how saka was racially abuse when he lost that penalty at europe 2020 in final against Italy.

  • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

    To think one useless godforsaken kid was here about a year ago, raining curses on me claiming Eze will bench Iwobi…..LMAOOoo

    Time as they say, always is the greatest judge.

    Like I told the nincompoop back then, tell your Eze to go score a goal in an European cup final first. Then we can talk.

    Ariwo ko ni music….!

    Iwobi of Nigeria was inspirational for Everton in that match yesterday. Eze, in fact, did not worth all the national attention that was attributed to him back then. Totally agreed with Dr Drey that ‘ Time is the best judge’ in human issues like this. Iwobi has transformed his skills to a higher level that even his most ardent critic cannot understand how they missed out on Iwobi right before our eyes. Watching Iwobi in that match yesterday gave me a great sense of joy. l tell you.

    Of a truth, a prophet is not honored in his own country. No wonder a man who is acclaimed to be the Nigeria football director do not know that iwobi is the heart beat of the SE…smh

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      Hahahaha….please don’t ruin my day…let us not talk about that dumb so-called technical director anymore…at least till the new nff board comes into power and sack the hell out of him.

  • I still said it recently…. We should forget about Eze once and for all cos we have a better iwobi. Aribo is also in his first season, he’ll surely get it right too but I won’t mind if Olise later changes his mind.  Good thing is never too much . just like we had a better Osimhen than Tammy Abraham, we have a better Iwobi than Eze. Iwobi has even added defense to his duty.
    Same way Aina won the day ahead of Udogie , Iwobi won ahead of Eze and Olise , Osimhen won the day against Abraham. 
    So… tell those black Naija boys that are wishing to be white that it’s only God’s type that doesn’t exist. Dele Ali and Ross Barkley will desperately be in need of time Machine as we speak.

    • Iwobi form is not a surprise for me he always a good players only those who watch the back of tv will said iwobi didn’t perform for super eagle if assist count in international level no one as more than iwobi since rorh took over till now he also score for us although he use to av up and down day but the dude always give me joy while playing for us some pple even argue that aribo is more creative than iwobi I don’t blame them because we know how to watch and understand football than each other am always iwobi fans cuz I love his playing still the wey he use to send those killer pass forward I think ighalo we understand me more cuz he benefits alot from iwobi that y I like olise also if eze didn’t play for us it won’t pain me but that olise av a potential
