  • Iwobi was amazing under in Sean Dyche’s 4-4-2 formation today as an inverted wide-man. Despite popularly held belief, I said at the time and still believe now that in the immediate future, Alex Iwobi will thrive under Sean Dyche and that the English gaffer is the right man for the job at Everton.

    Today’s results and Iwobi’s exemplary output are just a taste of what is to come.

    Iheanacho playing some brilliant football,one would wonder why a player of the quality i’m seeing this afternoon should accept to sit on the bench for the greater part of the season.
    Beats my imagination.Really does.

      Exact reason I was really mad with Monkey Post for using some unprincipled words on Iheanacho just because one coach who doesn’t know his worth benches him. The boy is just a victim of the Rodgers’s tactics. He knows where Iheanacho flourishes as a striker but the boy has to wait until the gaffer deploys that tactics before he can play. So sad. He was brilliant today. Let’s pray he keeps up that tempo. I love him as a player. And I’ll like to see him realize his full potential. Sitting on the bench isn’t helping him at all.
