Ligue 1: Simon On Target In Nantes’ Home Draw Vs Saint-Etienne

Moses Simon scored his first league goal as Nantes came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home against Saint-Etienne on Sunday, Completesports.com reports.

Simon began the fight back for Nantes after he scored in the 71st minute to make it 2-1.

And with five minutes left in the game Renaud Emond completed the fightback to bring the score to 2-2.

Adil Aouchiche gave Saint-Etienne the lead in the 2nd minute before Yvann Macon doubled their lead on 66 minutes.

    Moses is becoming really impressive and looks a sure bet for SE next games. Not forgetting to mention two great goals scored by Onuachu today. He seems to have been fired up by coming of Dessers, who I know will soon start banging in the goals. Kudos to Genk,as they played a much more better/matured game today and good luck to them for having two good strikers in Onuachu and Dessers.

      Simon really did a yeoman’s job today, but just like last week, he blasted what should have been an injury time winner over the bar from inside the 6 yard box, when it probably should have been easier to score. E pain me ehn…!

      • GLORY 4 years ago

        Hahahaha… I saw that miss. The guy too vex play dat ball. I think these are some noticeable areas these players should learn to work on. Broda abeg, wetin we go talk or do for this pure talent wasting away at Leibniz; Ademola lookman? E for better he seek loan move ooo to France or somewhere else. He dey pain reach bone to see that guy always sitting on d bench and never getting minutes.

        • Dr. Drey 4 years ago

          Hayi my broda…Simon would have just become the hero of the day if he had completed such an incredible comeback from 2 goals down with the 1st and the winning goal in injury time….Lolz.
          As for Lookman….as his name goes, na look me i jus dey use corner eye look am o. If he need prophet to tell am say e no get space for this Leipzig team this season make e find wia to go for loan, na him sabi o. Bcos I’m sure many clubs in the EPL will be ready to take him on loan. Make ‘man dey look’ ‘lookman’ see wetin in go do before the transfer window close

          • GLORY 4 years ago

            Na wa oo. Whoever dey manage Lookman, must do something really fast o. He should go Osimene way, as he too experienced same at Wolfsburg. Ademola’s precious talent will definitely find home in many teams across Europe, then why wasting away at Leibniz for crying out loud.

      Broda, Rohr will go nattydread for the number of players becoming available everyday. Could just be why list for next month friendlies still not released yet. I honestly don’t envy Rohrs job at the moment. It will be very difficult now to please everyone, as everyone’s got their fav player. My good friend @ Igbekun Abo will prefer Ramon Azeez to play No 10 while me Im stuck on ALEXANDER THE KING IWOBI or Ejaria. Lolzz

      • Igbekun Abo 4 years ago

        Lol, very funny. Alex Iwobi is my favourite player. I love him with all my heart. But that will not blind me to say he deserves to be in the team if he is underperforming.Ramon Azeez was on the bench last weekend. A player who sits on the bench regularly at club football will struggle to establish himself in this Super Eagles side brimming with talent. Azeez could be dropped from the Super Eagles sef.

        • GLORY 4 years ago

          Good talk, @ Igbekun Abo. It’s for the love of the game. I have nothing against anyone here on this forum but criticism that has no place. Just imagine calling Iwobi a bad player because he no longer dribble or does leg over and expecting everyone to join in such baseless conclusion. True, it could be frustrating sometimes watching Iwobi not pushing himself but if all his managers could be patient with him regarding that, who are we to cucify him. NEVER A HARD FEELING BROTHERLY.

    Yet Dannis keep telling us he wants to move since last season and others are moving without talking too much.

  • A good weekend for SE Players. Ejuke scored in his first game, and did really well in his second game.
    Chukwueze gave an assist, kalu and moses scored. Even iwobi came on as a sub. Good times seem to be back for super eagles players. I just need iheanacho to get more game time or go to a club that will play him more

    • Igbekun Abo 4 years ago

      Well said my person. The Super Eagles is for players playing regularly and playing well for their clubs. We don’t want people to make lame excuses for underperforming players. There is no favourism here. If any of the players you mentioned above starts to underperform, they should be dropped from the Super Eagles without fear or favour. No player is bigger than the Super Eagles.

  • Igbekun Abo 4 years ago

    Glory, I can only speak for myself and those that have offered an unbiased critique of Iwobi’s performance in the season just gone. So much energy has been spent talking about this Iwobi matter that I worry of not having enough strength to have sex later this night. You reference fans who observe Iwobi’s diminished dribbling abilities. Personally, I haven’t observed this and to be honest, I want our players to dribble less but pass more. But these people calling Iwobi a ‘bad player’ might just be a poor way of expressing their sentiments. Not everyone have the word power or multiple ways of expressing themselves like you and I do. You Glory are very articulate and determined but some just want to say things the way they see it. We should not automatically shoot them down or say that they are favouring one player over another. We should fight against bullying and harassment in our workplace, neighbourhood and online space. We should be tolerant of the views of others. We should not be quick to ascribed ulterior, evil motives to their contributions. I am not a huge fan of Gernot Rohr but I am a huge fan of the progress we have made under him. How do you square that conundrum? Guy, you and I are lovers of football, lovers of the Super Eagles. But we don’t see eye to eye on what the direction of the team should take going forward or who and who to invite to the team. That does not make any of us enemies of progress (I hate it when I hear that). Rather, it only reinforces the diversity in our humanity which should be seen as a source of strength rather that justification to scorn those with different views.

    • Well spoken, diversity of opinions and an attitude of tolerance is what marks a truly progressive group of people… Both u and @Glory as well as other well meaning sport enthusiasts in this forum continue to spice up the range of discussions and contributions on this forum… As Nigerians, we are addicted to success especially when it concerns football and our darling SE, mediocrity and favoritism is no longer permitted as we can see in how Rohr has handled the team… Hopefully this new season will culminate in trophy ware for our team as it becomes clearer that we are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with!

  • again Simon did well but he is not consistent enough. And he is never really impactful when Rohr uses him as an Impact player of the Bench. My Problem with Moses Simon is his Consistency. He can have one good game and then have 5 poor ones. That is what I mean when I say Quality Versus Form which a lot on this forum don’t understand and Won’t Understand.

    WE NEED SAKA (FULL STOP) and NFF Need to do what they can to secure his services. He is Miles ahead of Moses Simon, Musa and Co. when it comes to innate and intrinsic Quality. Saka Starting or Chukwueze Starting with Kalu or Either Saka or Chukwueze (Depending who starts) coming off the Bench with Onyekuru also in the Mix. Packs a lot more threat than having Moses Simon, Musa and Co on the bench to be called upon when a game needs QUALITY!!!
