  • Tammy has foresight, I think he saw what was gonna happen, hence he took the easiest root by pitching his tent with England. He would have been struggling to make the eagles squad now, if he had chosen Nigeria ahead of England.

    Imagine our options and their forms resoectively, this is mind blowing

    It’s game on Genk vs Royal Antwerp… and guess what? The plunder continues… Paul Onuachudoskidinho… no one has scored up to 30goals in Jupiler Liga for the last 26years… God is saying something about brother Paul… I am really happy for him. If only we know what good Onuachu’s exploit will attract to Nigeria football… It means more leagues across the world opening doors to Nigeria players and more European scouts scrambling for talents from the country… Most big European clubs these days even sponsor grassroot tournaments in Nigeria as well as sponsor nursery feeder clubs… It’s huge what the likes of Moffi, Osimhen, Simy, Iheanacho and Paul are bringing Nigeria’s way with their goals exploit in Europe leagues. I mean look at it… We have three players at FC Cologne… Arokodare, Ehizibue and Dennis. May God help our players achieve more… Still watching Onuachu giving Antwerp the business! Lol…

      Onuachu gets a brace, now on 29goals. Just one more to break that 26 year old record.
      What a season for Onuachu. At this rate, he can hit 35 goals before season ends.

  • Nigerian players scoring goals while playing for modest teams. Moffi, Paul, simy on target and are making waves while playing for modest teams (paul), teams on the brink of being relegated(moffi) or teams that are almost certain of being relegated(simy). Yet they are still firing goals week in and out. It shows the quality of players that we have in this country. Hope some of them escape relegation but for those who dont I hope their performances are good enough to get them a better deal in a bigger and better club.
    Over to ndidi and iheanacho tomorrow as they play Southampton for a place in the FA CUP FINAL to face chelsea fc. I wish them well!

    Moffi’s performance of recent, especially against Marseille, must have Rohr taking panadol like crazy. This guy is DEADLY.
    We need some friendlies to try out Moffi and other players.
