    This dude is probably the most consistent SE player in the past five years.
    Keep up the great work, Simon!

    • Simon is a player that always knows what to do with the ball….Very fast and balance with a good shooting ability….his crosses are very precise and he makes football look easy.

    Meanwhile our numero Uno… Maduka Okoye Conceded 4goals again today.

    I watch one of the goals… dude still cannot time crosses perfectly.

    He hesitates to go for contest from crosses and it gets headed in.

    I hope he works on his failings before heat of WCQ.

    • Maduka will be just fine….he is a young goalkeeper with a lot of potential and spata Rottadam knows that……All goalkeepers concede goals and they learn from each goal they concede….All goalkeepers make mistakes and those mistakes make them better in subsequent matches…. Goalkeeping department of football is unique in such a way that getting older is an advantage because you must have had a lot of experience like Maduka had today and those experience will make you a better goalkeeper…..Am sure maduka’s case will not be different.

    “Maduka Okoye conceded 4 goals again today”,biko at Jimmyball did Okoye conceed 4 goals yestaday as well or a day before and a day before?.For your information that is destroying the young guy’s reputation which is actionable per se.

    Again,no one has said you can’t criticise, but you should do it in good faith.You did not add that the guy made 4 clear safes which should have led to clear goals.But for Okoye the result would have been worse.

    It is instructive to note that,the best keepers conceed goals.Like AKP said the older they are the better they become.The dude is just 21 and was the best keeper in the entire Dutch league complete with Ajax in his maiden season, and with time will become even better.

    The same attitude we put up to condemn our own when they make mistakes as though they are infallible.Okoye is our own and we love him,because I can only take positives from his performance today.
