    This is what they get when they made only one subpar signing the whole window while other teams were busy in the market…. Mark my words Relegation battling teams with Nigerians will be Nottingham Forest, Everton, and Lecester city. It is becoming obvious Majority of our players are average apart from the likes of Osimhen, Zaidu, and Calvin Bassey……Even Chukwueze is a late sub specialist now. Awoniyi should have stayed where he is revered. I watched clips of Bayern vs Union Berlin 1-1 draw yesterday and I can say Union is a solid team……I wonder the rush in leaving Europa league to go for a relegation fighting team where you are not even considered first choice…….Something that doesn’t happen at Union. I was one of the people that said give him time but with him coming in as a sub in the last 2 games speaks volumes of how the coach sees him. Games in which they needed to score.

      It’s been a while since Awoniyi started a league match. E be like say the coach don see am finish.
      Let’s hope the situation improves.

    Ndidi is a suspect playing as a centre back.He wasn’t solid and assured.Soyunci or Amartey seem a better fit.
    Ndidi will give a good return screening the back four.He’s better playing as a defensive midfielder,Leicester will let in more goals with Ndidi at the heart of their defence.
