I got a new club to support..
They have been looking since last three weeks. We are tired of reading of statues. We wanna read about done deals CSN.
And someone who failed ordinary trials TWICE with 2 different clubs has the guts to tell us this boy is not a Super Eagles material….4 goals 4 assists from DM position, including in the UCL…..LMAOOooo. Maybe in own SE material still dey factory for Kaduna Textiles….LMAO
Congratulations are in order o jare @Frank Onyeka. From the grassroots in Nigeria to the EPL….see career progression. The kinds of career progression we hardly see from the MANY TALENTS in their so-called professional league once they leave for foreign clubs. 0.033% success rate MANY TALENTS…..LMAO.
… Hahahaha. Congrats Frank Onyeka. Well… I don’t hate him personally but I feel he is not yet there as a real Super Eagle quality… Of course I have to give him props for this move and he is young with enough room to improve. Again… now we have a chance to assess him better on weekly basis and make a case for him once his level is right where it needs to be… Back to myself. I will aggravate my knee from 2005 league game back home… again, against Hansa Rostock, and three weeks with Duisburg became a struggle just after my first five days with them… tough luck when I needed my fitness to save my ball life… I took a rest, did deep cartilage therapy, went to Switzerland and it resurfaced as the swelling and frustrating pain when shooting and turning again came back even more severe… I did not succeed for health reasons and not ability. Somehow I managed to play regionaliga with Ransford Osei of Ghana and I had to end my ball life… School again came to my rescue and God has been faithful. I am a happy man and I pray for all folks, mates and friends here to find fulfillment in their chosen paths too… You could be living well abroad but home remains home… It will have been more enjoyable for me, if I could get the same opportunities I have gotten in a foreign land in a Nigeria that works for everybody… One love folks!
Ndi Onyeka is not Super Eagles material, ngwa I watched Onyeka play in the Champions League but I was not impressed. Haters Club United where una dey? Now you will come out and call him ‘deserving players’. Lolzzzz… Una know una sef. Yeye dey smell.
@Eldridge… Until Frank Onyeka clear my doubt distinctively. But for now… I rate Samson Tijani above him. Lol…
Onyeka has a lot of similarities with ndidi….he is a good ball winner and has very good clean tackles too…he is Abit more skillful and has a better eye for goals than ndidi…I think both can play together to give freedom to other midfielders in the team….
I agree with all but i don’t think his tackles are cleaner as he commits so many fouls and gets booked a lot.
My observation though
If this move turns into a reality, then this guy really has to up his game. Yes, he has played in the UEFA champions league and so on but he will be facing some of the best attackers and midfielders in the world on a weekly basis. Whether or not he succeeds is up to him. The premiership is a very big stage and everyone will watching including coach Rohr.
