  • At midweek I ask peseiro to try once more to convince this Tosin guy to play for SE, now I’m
    Extending the appeal to both bassey and iwobi to play a role, I know this AFCON might come too soon for that to happen as Fulham won’t allow both there center backs to leave but at least towards when the WC qualifier resume back by mid next year, like the change in Fulham form is obvious with Tosiin’s back from injury, what a player and the way bassey and iwobi celebrate his goal was nice to watch, bassey keep having kudus in his pocket. Good game so far from Fulham.

      If the love Bassey showed on Tosin in the celebration of his goal this afternoon did not convince Tosin that no where like home and that his brothers are always there for him and he is still waiting for the whole Nigeria to come to England to prostrate for him to play for Nigeria then let him go to where his heart is

      • I’m not in support of even begging any players to switch nationality, reason I said they shd talk him into considering it once more, for sure he will walk into our back line with ease.

    Why do Nigerians like to use the word “beg”for every request, Other countries are requesting Nigerian sportsmen and women to switch nationality. When Nigeria does it, we describe it as begging. When do we shed this slave and colonial mentality?

    Okocha and Mikel two people who never won APOTY? HANDWRITING ON THE WALL FOR OSIMHEN!!!!!!!!

      @ Coache: What has not winning the APOTY got to do with being invited to celebrate Afican football? Need I remind you that these two gentlemen were African champions . Are you taking some antipsychotic drugs that is detrimental to your sense of reasoning?
