  • Calvin bassey keeps winning my heart and that of Gerald with his game every week…..He is very fast in attack and solid as a central defender in defense….. when England see him now they will hype him with hope and the next thing you will hear from Bassey will be…..” I want to concentrate on my club football for the main time “……”I want to think about it”……”I need time to make my decision on which country to play for”…..And when he finally plays for England you will hear CSN Forumites saying….” He is more talented that is why he chose England “……” Nigeria does not pay pension that is why he chose England “…………………………THE TIME IS NOW BECAUSE BASSEY HAS COME TO US FIRST NOW AND HE HAS TURNED DOWN ENGLAND U21 TWICE NOW FOR US…..To avoid all this analysis tomorrow.

    What a goal by Joe Aribo. Curled the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box. He was constantly charging at the Ross County defense, creating panic with his movement and dribbling. See video below.
    Calvin Bassey produced another top performance. Moving up and down the left flank, and whipping in quality crosses. Expect to see his name in the next call up list, or something is wrong somewhere.
    Good performance also from Balogun, though there was a handball scare earlier. He jumped to defend a cross into his box, ended up waving his hand up in the air awkwardly. Fortunately he didn’t touch the ball, and the ref correctly ignored desperate penalty pleas from Ross County players.


  • Calvin bassey will make a good addition to the super eagles if he really decides to play for Nigeria. Especially now that reports has it that Zaidu is having performance issues and his club has bought another left back to provide competition for his Position.
    I see Calvin as a starter for the super eagles, he is a modern day left full back. I just hope he chooses to represent Nigeria.
    Well done to Aribo and Balogun, Balogun is still performing even as he gets older. Super Eagles need its players to be performing regularly. The world cup qualifiers is at hand, stay injury free guys, all the best.

    It is unfortunate that Rohr has said it emphatically that he will not invite any new player this time because of team chemistry and all. I don’t think that’s really justifiable excuse for me.

    Two new players who really deserve invitation even more than some of the established guys right now are the likes of Calvin Bassey and Taiwo Awoniyi. I said it the last time that Nigeria best LB “for now” is Bassey and some of those guys who cannot always read and comprehend English well started tackling me via this platform.

    See! guys! One of the reasons we are not able to get those foreign eligible Nigerian players cap is simply because, our football authority approach them too late. They approach them by the time they started doing so well and the whole world is getting attention of them. By that time it becomes so difficult get them play for Nigeria.

    If our football authority can be clever enough, then, they have to start earlier enough, integrate them even in our age-grade football team just like in the case of tom dele-bashiru.

    I like Rohr but I am not happy with the fact that he is a REACTIVE coach instead of being a PROACTIVE coach. You see, by the time England and Italy started courting Bassey now, NFF official will now be sending delegate to go and talk to him. If he reject us that time, it now becomes a national embarrassment.

    Instead that Rohr invite this guy now and cap him once and for all he is saying he will not invite any new player because of the chemistry of his team. The chemistry that I have rarely seen transformed to better performances on the field of play.

    For Stephen Gerrard to have started benching Bona Borisic for Bassey tells you alert.

    @Abdulhandsy… Top nations invite players based on form alone. Are those ones not mindful of team chemistry also? It simply means that in an open and progressive group… You have to at all times give everyone a fair chance and make proof of performance and form be your guiding creed… We have a coach who does not know how best to manage a rich talent pool… I am not surprised the likes of Finidi and Amokachi who have taken lessons from some of the top coaches in the world are not sold on him… How can any sane human being shut doors on players who are in form but yet to really be part of the group? See Calvin… See Awoniyi… He won’t invite Calvin but will choose a collins who can’t compete against fast and strong African wingers… It’s well.

  • Make you people calm down, his already a super eagle. Even Rohr knows he’s the best. How are you people so sure that the passport is ready?
