    Good to see Alex iwobi back in action for everton, I hope that this is the first of many appearances for his club this season.because I have always had the feeling that Alex is still in the plans of coach ancelloti.

    Iwobi should seek for a loan than playing 15 minutes. Super Eagles is no more for 15 minutes players period.

      If you are the coach will you stary someone who is coming back from injury? This James Rodriges everyone is talking about is he is that good why couldn’t he make it at Real or Bayern. Pls let’s calm down as the league is just beginning as I have confidence that Iwobi will shame all these Nigeria who don’t belive in their own by suporting them when they are down. If nothing to appreciate about Iwobi, he choose Nigeria because he is proud of it and not those that will wait for a callup to their country of birth until they are old without getting it and then turn arround and pledge their nationality to the ledt over country. Let’s support him now because I believe that “the dry bone will rise again”

    It was good to see Iwobi play yesterday. I join every Super Eagles fan in wishing Iwobi a much improved 2020-21 Premier League season. My heart often wept last season when his game in the league would leave a lot to be desired. Little wonder why his omission from the first 2 games of the season fuelled rumours of his days at Goodison Park coming to an end. It will appear that these speculations were actually misplaced. Iwobi going to Everton at the time he did and for the fee he commanded was a very good thing. He became a higher profile player and a massive inspiration for young African footballers. The expectations were understandably high but his overall performance was low in quality as reflected in the poor stats at the end of the season. Stating the obvious does not represent hatred towards Iwobi, far from it. It is just offering an unbiased appraisal of how Iwobi performed last season. We have now started a new season. The coach has brought him back to the team immediately after recovering from injury thereby leaving England striker Theo Walcott out of the match day squad altogether. This singular act by coach Carlo Ancelloti totally ridicules the nonsense postulated by some Nigeria fans that coaches in Everton do not like Iwobi. Nothing could be further from the truth.
    This season, Iwobi now has more quality players around him as team mates. Everton has come out all guns blazing with 2 wins from 2 games. So, he is among players and a coach who want to push higher in the league table and hopefully win the odd trophy. There can be no excuses for poor performances this time around. I pray for Iwobi and hope that his performances produce the sort of goals and assists that are expected of a player of his calibre. I will give my unbiased views about his performances as the season progresses. If he gives sterling performances, he gets A1 grade from me. If he performs like he did at times last season, it is F9 grade from me. I will not let patriotism blind me to award a player A1 when his performance deserves F9. That is not patriotism, that is criminal insanity. Such acts of barbaric patriotism is what is killing our country.

      In all, I believe Everton are the right track this season to push up higher in the league. Iwobi can be a huge part of this if he improves on his performance last season. I am rooting for Iwobi to have better statistics this time around. Go Iwobi! Go Iwobi! Go Iwobi! Go and prove critics wrong. Because the criticisms are coming from a good place, everyone will only be too happy once you start to deliver.
