    Why did Manu and his crew not just give all those who havent had a feel of this tournament a chance to play this game…? This is a dead rubber game for all I care. Or is it that someone is hell bent on marketing some players…?

      Manu is just proving to be a disgrace. Just showing how bereft of ideas he can be. Using this game to see what those fringe players can offer would always be more beneficial than silver talk less of a bronze. Very sad that our local coaches are always throwing chances away of sticking to local coaches for our national teams. They suffer greatly from exposure,inferiority complex to foreign born players and don’t seem to understand the developmental trend of players. Manu can never take his coaching to the next level with this attitude. No wonder he failed woefully with those pure talented players he had at his disposal at the u-20 level despite all the good preparation.

        Yea…I agree with you on most of our local coaches especially at this level. A certain david alaba was denied the opportunity of playing for the 2007 set on the grounds that he was “too young” i wonder how too young a 16 tr old can be for the u17 national team. That was how we lost him. Mathew Edile who went on to be the left back of that disgrace of a team fizzled into oblivion soon after the u17 world cup. Alaba has gone on to be one of the top 3 left backs in the world for almost 10 years now. Look at our U20 team at the toloun tournament in 2013….we had Semi Ajayi and Seb Osigwe in that team to the touloun tournament. Infact Ajayi was so outstanding in that tournament but to my utmost shock was dropped from the WC team together with Osigwe. Obuh rather took one shortingo of a goal keeper who wasnt above 5’6″ to the world cup only for us to crash out due to him not being able to properly deal with aerial balls. Now where are all his central defenders to that WC today…..?
        Fast forward to 2013, we had a certain makanjuola from chelsea in our team, very highly rated by chelsea back then. I can recall many giving this lad a minute throughout the whole tournament.
        Our local coaches really are not helping their cause with attitudes like this

         
        • You could that Obuh’s goalkeeper has his “short-comings” Lol

            Hahahahaha @ deo…those ‘short-comings’ really “short-changed” us at that WC.

             
    • Am so disappointed at him, why not give the rest of the team a chance. Thats why the boy omidiji is refusing to return to the team

       
    • I think most Nigerian age-grade coaches are guilty of this. Either cos of sentimental attachment to a player or their inability to resist big dollar bribes from unscrupulous agents. I had my suspicions even with Keshi at the senior level at some point. But after Brazil 2014, what happened to Chigozie Agbim? Rueben Gabriel? Ejike Uzoenyi? Uche Uchebo? How come they didn’t thrive afterwards, compared to their mates then, Emenike, Onazi, Mikel, Moses, Enyeama, Omeruo, Yobo & co?

      But that’s by the way. Where is Rohr’s former assistant, Salisu Yusuf today? Thank God for technology. By now, we could have started questioning some invitations to the SE.

      Sometimes, it is not just that a foreign coach is tactically more sound or experienced, sometimes it’s just that they cannot be easily influenced to field certain players and ignore better ones. Some Nigerian coaches don’t have that kind of willpower in the fear they could lose their jobs.

      Most foreign coaches are big sticklers for merit. That may just be the simple winning formula for Rohr.

       
  • My brother that is the plan of the technical team ,to market the players. Refusing to give others change means that it never pick the best legs for the team.Cannot imagine while a young goal scorer from Chelsea will still be on the bench when the team are failing to score goals.

    This is the worst Eaglets I have ever watched. I think the coach has no idea on how to improve this team.

    I suggest he is shown the way out and lets give chance to a more competent coach.

     
  • Waaawuuu! Another loss? What was learnt from the last match? Ubani & co still failing to convert chances for an entire 90 minutes? Mr.Garba, what’s going on?

    I am really surprise Manu used the same players who were struggling in this competition for this inconsequential match.I can’t understand his rational for doing so i am indeed disappointed because everyone is looking forward to seeing that Chelsea player as well the one from Bournemouth.It’s a shame they didn’t get their bow,i hope they don’t change their mind to honour future invitations.

     
  • This coach is seriously mad.

    I worry that we couldn’t take advantage of 10 men Angola for the most part of the second half. I think the coaching crew will need to look for more potent goal scorers before the WorldCup.

    why will they change ogaga oduko from left back,is it because he lost a penalty? Anyone can lose a penalty. The strikers that can not convert scoring opportunity are left on the pitch.

    This also calls to Nigerians as well, because you all criticise the young boy for losing a penalty instead to encourage him . Most top and experience players have missed penalty. I hope the attacking front can be changed with a pairing goal scoring intelligent player.

    NFF should be brave n start to take the bull by d horn. Stupid coaches like this Manu should be rid off with immediate effect. We have only be supporting this team despite seeing loads of rubbish because we want to be positive while hoping that will push them on to perform but truth be told, this is about one of our worst u-17. Yes u-17 is not all about winning but now how has Manu justify the primary aim, which is to discover talents. Truth be told apart from Amoo n maybe Ubani, d rest are miles behind all others u-17 we have had of recent. And if I may ask, how many of them are we still getting to hear today. These ones that depend on Manu backing instructions to them in Yoruba will need special miracle to make it. They go ask Musa Yahaya, Mohammed Abdullah etc.

    Anyone who support this team does so at his or her own peril. Ok, send everyone home to their fu*k*** villages in the Sambeise forest. Mumu is not good and worst, they are a bunch of tribalist and corrupt coaches. Where are all the Easterners, the Deltains, the Edos, the beautiful kids from Opetakwa.(Port Harcourt)
    Let all the coaching crew get lost and we state again if there is enough time for Brazil, if not, Mumu and Co are not the answer.
