  • Surely the best!!! Still mourning his three disallowed goals at afcon. Painful. Especially the one against Angola. What a header that was. Well we move on Sha.

    He should do the magic by making Napoli get to champions league position.

    First hat trick in Napoli

    • Now we have our Osimhen back. APOTY Victor Osimhen is back banging goals from all cylinders.

      For AFCON, please blame the defence minded coach who turned every player to place defence. All games at afcon came from counterattacks.
      Please, NFF sack Paseiro, and let’s get our attack minded Super Eagles back.

      We kept blaming Iwobi, a creative midfielder turned into a box to box midfielder, adapting to an unfamiliar role is not a one day affair.

        Crap reply which one come be “all games at AFCON came from counter attack” na una be d rzn Naija na 4th world country.

        If enu-ef-ef comot Peseiro who go replace am? You?? See him mouth…

        • You wey sabi, wey watch all the matches wetin you know? Coach wey crowd all players for defence and rely on counters, wetin be that?

    Our clueless coach was the problem. He almost turned Victor Osimhen into a goalkeeper, all in the name of defensive football. Mtcheeew

    • But you guys are missing something. Let us stop blaming pesero for everything. This is unfair. Let’s look at these:

      1. Pesero made do with he had at afcon. He never knew ndidi and Boniface would get injured.

      2. He played defensive but we created the most chances in the first round.

      3. You have all forgotten that Oshimen was wasteful. He missed school boy chances. We all blamed him here. Is it pesero that will score cheap goals for him?

      4. Sometimes we are driven by current situation and we forget the past.

      5. We should not give all the blame in pesero. It’s unfair. Oshimen should receive some of the blame.

      6. We played defensive but hus three good goals were ruled out by VAR.

      We should not drive away pesero. We will back at square one. Let him learn and correct his errors. Just like westerhof did.

      @Monkey Post during the AFCON, you abused and insulted Osimhen. In one of the publications here you commented and specifically said he should return the award, you said his APOTY win is a scam, today you’ve switched, talking from both sides of the mouth. You’re a double mouthed and fowl mouthed human, filled with negativity pretending to be criticism. Now you’re here pretending to like the same person you brutally shamed. Rest Abeg! 

  • Osimhen’s hat-trick made it five goals in three games since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations.
    He has responded to Nigeria’s final loss in stunning style, perhaps taking out his frustration in the process under a defensive formation of Paseiro.
    Same with Iwobi.
    It’s a good thing Awoniyi and Victor Boniface were not in Afcon as they would have sat on the bench.

    Can people like @Monkey Post now see why he was unable to score at the last AFCON? They suddenly made it look like Osimmhen was a bad striker. Some even said “APOTY my foot” just because a coach decided to misuse him. They suddenly forgot that going to that
    competition, Osimhen wad the highest goal scorer in the continent with 10 goals in the qualifying series. Sometimes, our criticism should be balanced and constructive; not a one-sided condemnation with a touch of satirical mockery. I feel for the guy at the AFCON, doing so so much for the team, yet not recognized or commeded for it.

    The difference between Napoli and the Super Eagles is the coaching. If Osimhen could manage only 1 goal in 7 matches at the AFCON but has now scored 5 in just 3 matches in his club, then something fundamental was wrong with not only the Nigerian coaching system in the competition but with the Super Eagles as a whole in that tournament. Only few of us managed to see that problem. Others put the team’ poor scoring problem on the striker who they expected so much from.

    I’m really happy for his response. And this will alert a lot of big clubs in Europe who will surely give him a bigger platform to perform and achieve greater things in his career.

    • Thank you mu brother. This is the kind of comment I love to hear.
      Not from Paseiro apologists

    • MONKEY POST 1 month ago

      All of a sudden you guys are blaming the coach..but back then you guys blamed it on ill luck..if we had won the competition, nobody would’ve blamed the coach…

      You guys can be hypocrital ehn!!!

      Is it not the same defensive minded coach that you guys were hailing that o! “This man is the mourinho of african football” o! What a masterclass performance bla bla bla..

      Our game is too defensive And yet osimhen scored, caused penalty (if he had steped up to take it and score, you guys would have been singing a different song now.) And if those goals that the var disallowed were meant to stand it, am sure all of you would care less about the too defensive minded game…

      Like I keep saying. The problem of nigeria football is the fans and not nff..cos you guys can push the nff to make the wrong decision…cos I remember how you guys made the nff to sack GENERAL ROAR and brought in EGUAVEON that carried our football like 5 steps backwards

        This guy, you’re the Hypocrite here. You’re so loud mouthed and a very big lair. Didn’t you begin to call him General Peseiro at some point. Hailing him for shutting your loud and negative mouth up? You’re the main Hypocrite here. Pretender 

      • Monkey post of banku nation, mind ya business. Black stars is sinking, mind them and leave us alone.

  • Congratulations VO9! More goals and wins to you and your team, Amen.

    Talking of AFCON loss. I will not complain so much bcos I see it as a karma effect to the kind of leader(s) (rulers) we have; Gold is given to those who know it’s value.

    The players did their best. I felt for them. The shock was too rude.

    Our political leaders(sorry, rulers) need to repent and fear God. Let the will of the masses prevail, that is democracy. Cheers!

  • It’s funny too that we have defended iwobi here but we know iwobi. What has happened most times when we use him behind two strikers. Sometimes he sleeps off in a match. The problem is that iwobi is always not consistent. Great players usually adapt and give their best. Many players at afcon adapted and gave their best.

    Let us move beyond iwobi for our midfield. Let’s push him to the wings.
