    Ikpeba’s mature response to Osimhen and Oshoala’s taunts has actually made him more respected and popular now among Nigeria fans.
    Now, everyone wants to hear what Ikpeba has to say.
    Nice indeed.

      When Osimhen called Ikpeba agbaya, many people no understand…

      Now Amaju is really working this agbaya hard. Just imagine this type of nonsense news?… These people no rate is at all.

        At least like POMPEI rightly noted, the AGBAYA is becoming more and more respected by all and sundry except of course by nonentities like you who have no PROFILE!

        A popular forumite here was right; go do something about your SERIAL BADBELLEISM…. obviously something to do with a failed childhood or miserable adulthood!

        That can only be the reason why you don’t see any good in people…always finding faults, especially people whose strides and achievements you can only see from a DISTANCE!

        PATHETIC!

        Are you not the reall agbaya…? Impersonating Dr.Drey just because you want to rub your filthy impressions on Dr.Drey by force…..LMAOooo…???

        You are so internally stressed by your now battered, demystified and diminished image that you feel you still need to get even with me…LMAOoo…and the next thing you do is to impersonate me and start talking trash all over the place so you can insult me…..LMAOOoo

        You really have no shame do you…???

        If you want to be Dr.Drey why not kindly let us know so that we can let you have the floor while keep neing a fool to yourself….LMAOooo

        Your thirst for validation runs so deep that using your multiple IDs which have been busted severally doesnt quench it…..LMAOoo….you still have to impersonate the same Dr.Drey you called a computer game analyst, the alimosho newspaper seller, just to get validation….LMAOooo

        The pain of your failure isnt enough for you, you have to impersonate me so you can have the opportunity to insult me….LMAOooo

        No wonder they say a fool at forty is a fool forever….LMAOoo

        Keep it up ehn…keep on fooling yourself….LMAOoo

        Imagine the depth this filthy multifaced lying pig is willing to sink….?? LMAOoooo

        You must be having nightmares seeing Dr.Drey everytime you sleep at night…..LMAOoooo

         
        • Mahmud Shuaib 2 months ago

          Haaaaaaa…who then is the Dr.Drey who commented earlier??

          Pls forgive me for hurling diatribe at you. Wondering why you would find fault with that brilliant piece by POMPEI.

          I am truly sorry. God sees my heart and bears me witness this Holy month.

          Even if am going to pick up a fight with you, it should be JUSTIFIED and FAIR in my reckoning but not to cast aspersions on you if truly you weren’t the SUBJECT of my rejoinder.

          I need you to know my response was targeted at that FOOLISH comment in response to POMPEI!

          So, whoever that Dr Drey is, you are the recipient of my salvos!

           
          • @Mahmud Shuaib, I don’t think Dr.Dtey uses ‘LMAOoo’ a lot – if at all. Instead, it’s usually “Hahahahahaha” or something like that.

            Also, his submissions are a bit more advanced in terms of background research and use of English (even though not necessarily grandiloquent).

            I may be wrong, but this is my cursory observation of his style. But the clone is really trying now at duplicating his style and stands/viewpoints to throw people off on who is who. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell apart.

             
          • Mahmud Shuaib 2 months ago

            @KEL, God bless you. The clone really got me picking an unnecessary and unjustified fight against the REAL, loquacious Dr. DREY

            indeed the real one was the person who commented after me as a reply to the clone

            Those were his writing style. He uses ‘LMAOOOOOO’ a lot and write ups are laden with more sophisticated, prosaic expletives.

            His comprehension writing skills are also top notch. He writes voluminous sentences unlike the clone.

            Once again, my apologies @Dr. Drey…if it’s not you, then there was no need. My target was the comment under your SIGNATURE!

             
  • They have shortlisted cocu,blanc,valverdy and peseiro just to “deceive” knowing fully they are going for less fancy pesiero…

     
    • Chima E Samuels 2 months ago

      It’s either the Media are gullible or they’re all paid to deceive the mass. Except Nduka Ugbade the rest of the appointments are Garbage with no track record to take our football anywhere. Hurriedly assembled Dumbasses!!!

       
    • chrisB 2 months ago

      …and now going by current reports,the sports minister has halted the process of NFF seemingly anointing Peseiro.

       
  • pompei 2 months ago

    NFF, give us Blanc, Valverde or Cocu.
    We need a quality coach to improve our team, attract quality players, and get us much needed results that will move us up the FIFA ranking.
    A coach that is committed to inviting ONLY THE BEST PLAYERS AT OUR DISPOSAL.
    ONLY THE BEST WILL DO.
    If we do not get any of these 3 coaches, a serious campaign to remove the current NFF executives from office will need to begin.
    NFF, get us one of these 3 coaches.

     
  • Chima E Samuels 2 months ago

    Exactly the news I’m talking about, what major title has Aforementioned coaches won? Even with the talents at their disposal as Coaches, makes one wonder talkless of Nigeria. Cocu what did he do with PSV? Blanc what did he do with France and PSG? Valverde is very decent but can they afford him $1million per month? Peseiro is on a 12 match winless streak and zero cabinet but it’s your plan to hire him and pay him $50000 monthly for waste because he will not do better than what he has done before. Jose morais was the best affordable option with trophy cabinet but Pinnick will setttle for the worst as usual and when we talk people will say we complain. When all facts are there for all to see! Nigerians must not allow them to give us recycled failures again else let’s switch allegiances to support other countries like Ancelloti supporting Canada.

    My best choice is Lauren Blanc because he has won the world cup before with France so he understands the kind prayers a team need to be a champion. With to plethora if players at our disposal there can be no better time than now to get Blanc or any other in that class to manage Eagles. I aware of the financial implication but I think this should attract the sense of generosity of Dangote and the Other airline Owners who normally parade the SE dressing room promising them heaven and earth if they win a match. If those men are serious and sincere let them come out now and Support the NFF to hire a world class Coach for once. Dangote and Atodola can undertake to be paying part of his salary. Pls if they can help now that eye service of parading SE camp to make useless promises must stop now. If they love Nigeria and SE let them show it now.lets emulate what Eto is doing in Cameroun, Sadio mane in Senegal etc

     
    • Chima E Samuels 2 months ago

      He has won the World Cup as a player in 98 and not coach, please be guided Blanc only qualified France to World Cup and qualified for quarter final before losing to Spain 2-0. France fired him ASAP or which World Cup did he win after that?

       
      • No Blanc had to resign because of the comments he made about black players- these were deemed to be racist even though he probably didn’t mean it that. That said, NFF should go with Peseiro rather than Blanc

    If you ask me Nff is our major problem,, not the coach

     
  • Chibuike 2 months ago

    Alot of world class coach’s that knows how to read games but can NFF afford it?

     
  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Whether IKPEBA is YARNING DUST or no, BLANC will be a GOOD pick..

     
  • TALK UR OWN 2 months ago

    BUT AS WE ALWAYS CLAIMED THAT WE ARE GIANT OF AFRICA, WHY WE ALWAYS LIKE TO BE GOING FOR FLUKE/LOW PROFILE COACH THAT DOESN’T KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT AFRICA FOOTBALL AND NIGERIA PLAYERS BOTH HOME AND ABROAD.
    AS WE HAVE MUCH AFFECTION FOR FOOTBALL IN NIGERIA,WE SHOULD BE COMPETING WITH COUNTRIES LIKE BRAZIL, FRANCE, ENGLAND, GERMANY, ARGENTINA FOR HIGH-PROFILE COACH.
    ***AS BIG AS NIGERIA IS, IT IS A BIG SHAME FOR US TO BE EMPLOYING A LOW RANK/PROFILE COACH THAT DOESN’T KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT AFRICA FOOTBALL AND NIGERIA PLAYERS BOTH HOME AND ABROAD.
    ### WHAT A SHAME !!! ###
