Lampard Raves About Iwobi After Win Against Leeds United

Lampard Raves About Iwobi After Win Against Leeds United

Everton manager Frank Lampard has heaped plaudits on Alex Iwobi following the winger’s impressive performance in Saturday’s win against Leeds United, reports Completesports.com.

The Nigeria international has struggled for game time this season and has been criticized for his inconsistent showing since linking up with the Toffees from Arsenal.

Iwobi was handed a rare start in the 3-0 win against Leeds United at the Goodison Park and the player grabbed the opportunity by churning out a superb display against Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

“One of the beauties of coming in like this is it’s a restart for everybody,” Lampard said after the game.

“What Alex Has done is trained at a great level. He demanded a place in the team with his performance…

“He had to do a lot of work off the ball and he did everything.”

  • Just imagine some crazy Nigerian fans sent this boy threat mail that he will be kiled just because of his poor performance in Nigeria jersey. If they did carried out their threat, would Iwobi be here to be commended today? Your guess.

    Let us be simcere, Alex Iwobi era is gone for good. Forget Lampard, what you see in Iwobi is just the ordinary flash in the pan. We have all called for Akin Amoo to replace him. Akin is a complete baller with an uncanny ability to destroy any defence and stamp his authority while the opponents keep rushing from behind. That is the kind of player fit for the SE.

    • Don’t when some of you will wear your thinking cap, after watching one useless YouTube video you will come here to dish your crap as usual until it all dawn on before you desist. Where did the clip of Awoniyi, Sadiq, Nwakali etc that you brandished before Nations cup led us today? Rubbish comparing untested player with one who have had over 30 caps and is still on top of his game despite the criticism. Common Ups and downs is part of the game.

    I just want everyone on this forum and CSN crew to watch this video. Amoo can be switched between the midfield, flanks and forward. He has stamina, rugged and always scoring goals which is the essence of a football match.

  • To think he was rated among the least performer in BBC rating. I now know his reason for playing for Nigeria is why he is so much being hate by most of English and Everton fans. And to think that same Nigeria fans are not been there when things are not going well is adding salt to injury. Just continue to silence the critics wishing you all the best..

      They still go to ask him,whether he regrets choosing the Nigeria option and his constant reply, that he is ever proud to have chosen Nigeria hurts the English man’s pride so bitterly. I, personally can never give in to their evil manipulation against a brother, using the media, the slave minded amongst us and many other instruments to destroy anyone that refuses to glorify their own. GOD BLESS ALEXANDER THE KING IWOBI N ALL DESERVING SE PLAYERS. I was amongst English fans in Wembley, when SE played England in 2018. While most of our players struggled to cope with the pace of the English team, Iwobi was the one SE player that out, running things, making it look like it was Iwobi against England to the point English fans were saying Iwobi should have been playing for England rather ; that he according to them, was an ingrate, to have chosen NIGERIA. That was the day Iwobi won my respect. Mikel n Onazi got boxed out by Dele Alli to the point they starting having argument but Iwobi was able to put England’s midfield to bed. He did same to Argentina, to Brazil etc. So if he has shown how good he can be at certain times while should I not support him in trying times. While must I celebrate his trying moments even going forward to join same haters ( English fans) to ridicule him? If that isn’t down to such people being evil minded then, there must be another definition of evil.

    Akin Amoo can play in the midfield, flanks and as a striker. He is always scoring goals from any position. Please Iwobi time is over. Let’s have Akin as a replacement. It doesn’t matter whether he is Igbo or yoruba as what is germain is the success of our SE.

    am one of his greatest fan…. u really showed your class. i still have good respect for your style of play. keep maintaining this level of energy.

  • The same way they were screaming Sadiq and co on this forum, they have started shouting Akinkunmi Amoo up and down now again. I will be glad if Amoo is given a call, but definitely not to slight a player like Iwobi. Some SE fans have written Iwobi off. Fair weather fans. But I believe he will still surprise them. At least we know age is still on his side at 25, unlike some grandpa parading themselves as under 20. The same way they wrote Moses Simon off before AFCON. Some on this forum even said they should not invite him for AFCON.

    In the recent time not many players have done better than Iwobi in SE colour. You might be surprised Amoo might not live up to expectations in SE colour. What happens then if you have insulted and ridiculed Iwobi because of him? The more our options the merrier. Let us learn to cut these players some slack. He has enough trouble dealing with English fans already. If Naija fans do not have anything constructive to say, then it’s better we keep quiet rather than throwing too many clueless analysis around. Constructive criticisms are okay but the sad part is that some criticisms and babbling around here regarding this young man are rather destructive.

    Where is their Ebere Eze now? The one some of them were almost rating as Messi + CR. He embarrassed us before the world but some are still singing his praise to the highest heaven. But the one who willingly commit to Nigeria, and proudly so, they would rather berate and insult him. This is the true definition of wickedness.
