    One thing I’m very sure of,you will never go down with Crotone.

  • Keep scoring goals bro. 5 goals in 3 games in serie A is no joke. Your HOT! You have proven that even in a small club a player can still stand out if he is focused and full of confidence. I really hope you dont go down with crotone. Your form has shown that you will be an asset to any club in the top league and division with a decent defence and midfield.

  • I just watched the highlights of the game, crotone do deserve to be where they are. They have a poor midfield and an even poorer defence. But simy doesn’t deserve to go down with them. His first goal was created out of nothing. He fought off his marker on getting the ball and was able to toe poke the ball into the right side of the post from outside the 18 yard box. A real clever goal. His second goal was from the penalty and he sent the keeper the wrong way. He deserves to stay in serie A and I know its late but he also deserves to fight for a place in the Super Eagles as well.

    Well done Simmy, last year Seria B top scorer is now 9th in Seria A top scorer chat with 12 goals, just 2 goals behind 4th placed Ibrahimovic on 14goals.
    You usually get more deadly at the end of the season, I know you score more, keep it up.
    Whether you play Super Eagles or not you deserve to be celebrated for your consistency.
