    A bad move for him and Moffi. Why leave a champions league team to a club battling with relegation in the EPL for Moffi. He rejected a move to Marseille and go dlto a team below Lorient in the Ligue 1. That sound really crazy tbh. Moffi situation still fair as Nice is within top 10 but write this down today. Onuachu will struggle with the pace of the EPL and it will be a miracle for him to score 7 or 8 goals in the remaining EPL matches considering the team he’s playing for

    Was routing for Eintracht Frankfurt!
    Common,Southampton is a team heading towards relegation,their football this season is abysmal.
    Paul thrives in a team that plays beautiful attacking football especially from the wings where he finishes off crosses from good wingers,I doubt he will get that in Southampton a team that hardly plays on the front foot.
    Well,I guess it’s just that dream of playing in England and settling in the UK with family after retirement as well better renumeration.
    Anyways,I wish you well Paul I hope we don’t end up having two super eagles in the championship next season.

  • Good move Mr Paul ……. Southampton have a fighting chance of staying up this season and something tells me Onuachu will definitely have a say in the whole narrative come end of season……With the signings made by Southampton this January I see them staying up.

    Some of you people here need to open your brains before you open your mouths haba! This is how you lot keep holding the reputation of Africans back in diaspora with the way you talk without brains – Too many of you, too many to mention and not just this time, every time we hear that someone goes to another club you people will come here and start asking why they didn’t go to ManU and Real Madrid and Barcelona and Chelsea or Liverpool etc –
    Please give your heads a good wobble, stop watching football and go back to school first!
    Chaii!
    What an omnia which has no legim! lool!
