    This is the kind of man NFF should have engaged instead of Eguaveon that had been a constant badluck to Nigeria football… that man has caused more pain to Nigeria as a country only comparable to Buhari in the country’s history…

      Lmao!!! Really??? So Eguavoen is now bad luck?? Whatever happened to let us fail with our own??? Lmao!!! Ẹ maa ran. Make una feel the pain. No matter you blame Buhari there was a government and another ruling party before Buhari what did they achieve??? Nigeria’s problem is beyond the government. We’re the most tribalistic nation in the world. No matter how the government tried. It’s only football that brings us together and they’ve taking that away with our WorldCup ouster. Let’s just hope for the best in the next NFF and Presidential elections. Anyway Wetin concern me. Lmao!!!

    Oh wow…………this comment coming from a man that was over the moon when Eguavoen was appointed as replacement to Rohr and was “happy to fail with our own”? 

    So you knew all along that Eguavoen was a serial failure but then you supported him simply because of your hatred of Rohr?

    Nawa for you oooo

  • Bros stop blaming Eguavoen the problem is our players they were playing as if those matbhes were friendly we lost the w/cup ticket because our boys were not serious.Eguavoun did his best

  • @Dr Banks super eagles problem stated from the day nff employ your father Rohr as the se coach

    • Ayphillydegreat 2 years ago

      Then how did the problem escalated when they employed your Father Eguavoen??? Lmao!!! Round of 16 exit at the AFCON and a WorldCup monumental failure against the worst Ghanaian team in my lifetime. Your father that was blaming Iheanacho for not marking Partey. Lmao!!! What a clueless simpleton. Making 5 changes from a team that battled for a goalless draw in Kumasi!!! Even the greatest SuperEagles of all time never get a draw in Kumasi. Compare that to making qualifying for tournaments a formality after back to back failures to even qualify for AFCON. Well that’s why you will be watching the WorldCup on the back of your TV when other serous nations are slugging it out in the Qatar.

    Please uncle Stanley you have to start poaching or even looting other NPFL clubs for top and quality players now so as to be able to give us fantastic outing at the next CAF champions league, we are tired of first round disappointments.. I can see that some of the players that won the league for you are already going for trials in Europe, all we want is you to make us proud in the continent again, after Emyimba FC double, we’ve not reach the hight again.
