  • Looks like your rediscovery that form that made Napoli spend 70m on your legs. Keep it up, dont stop scoring till the season ends, shame all those who have been criticising you because of your slow start. You can do it because Its in you!!!

  • Gowetok 4 months ago

    Osimhen is the best . Not only because he can convert half chances but also because is movement causes lots of problems for defender and allow his teammates to capitalize and score. No disrespect to Simmy , Onuachu et al. They can queqe up for the backup striker position

    • asonaldo 4 months ago

      I agree with you. Osimhen poses a big threat to defenders compare to the other strikers we have, for now he is the best 9 we have.

      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        @asonaldo, @Gowetok… both of you good talk! However, we must never forget that injuries are part of the game, and can at any time, decisively affect a player’s availability and sometimes make him indisposed to honour a match. We must continue to be thankful to god of soccer for blessing us with the avalanche of players, especially in striking positions that we have at our disposal now… we must continue to encourage and offer prayers for every key player and those often not starting SE games we have now… we have to good stock in our barn for days when shortage will stare us in the face… one love!

    Dres Mertens is that guy! I swear when he was injured the team was so bad
    but ever since he came back from injury the team been firing. He is a leader
    and he assisted Osimhen for the goal. I swear he is the only one that treats
    Osimhen well on the team. Whenever he is about to swap with Osimhen he always
    tell him to finish it. Osimhen needs to be assisted for goals, its simple. That’s 5 goals so far in serie a.

    But Osimhen picked a bad time to join Napoli, because a lot of people are soon going to be moving around. Gatusso is rumored to leave, seems like a good thing to me. Kalidou might leave in the summer since the owner lowered the price tag on one of the best defenders. Bakayoko soon leave because the team is not interested in him since he has a poor form (just watch the europa league game against granada). And other two players I cant remember the name of. But hopefully he wont have to battle relegation next year

      One of the best comments I’m reading on this thread with such a fore sight, i wonder who’s disliking this. Hmmm

  • Sommie 4 months ago

    Big problem for Rohr
    Iheanacho scored twice today
    Onuachu and simy also scored…

  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    …Congrats to Victor Osimhen. The ability has never been in doubt. Still the numero uno… competition is good and let the sweet sunshine continue for all SE frontline attackers. You all are representing as it should be… what a weekend for 9ja strikers! One love…

  • Obidee 4 months ago

    Nice one Victor and Simy, as Paul Onuachu and Iheanacho and Joe Aribo score’s today for their respective clu

  • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

    E fi kini yi siwajuuuu……. a la the goals-father himself Rashidi Yekini of blessed memory….that is Victor “the beast” Osimhen for you.
    in that order. No be mistake…!

    • Chima E Samuels 4 months ago

      Okay now you got me on this again, that Rashidi thought came on my mind due to Victors consistent threat and pace. But after Victor and Kelechi the order of striker ranking should be based on form. Simy, Sadiq and Onuachu are just doing great in different ways. Moffi is out of the run ike ugbo is knocking on the door. Nigeria is becoming fearsome like senegal. Power is changing hands gradually.

      • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

        Hehehehe….Mr Vivid Rememberer who remembered Dr. Drey insulting Sam Sodje in 2013 when Dr.Drey wasnt even on CSN yet….LMAO….you are back now after running away from defending your honour…??? Be decent enough to tender an apology for your lies attempted blackmail instead of trying to patronize me. To hell with your thoughts about my ranking.

  • Ololo 4 months ago

    I said it then.

    Select oshimen in the Nigerian list, let him come home and score goals then go back to napoli on fire.. But some said he should sit back in Italy and rest when his mate would be playing for Nigeria. Which kind yeye rest, has he not rested enough with the injuries and the civid positive result.

    Since he returned to Italy, he has been too hot that even great chellimi admitted that he caused me to much troubles..

    This boy is back.

  • Something is definitely not right with the team chemistry of Napoli. Some of the players are not playing to Osimhen, they only pass to him on occasions when the cabals are not available for the passes. Osimhen would have possibly score more in that match.

    Entente Setif (Algeria) vs Enyimba (Nigeria)

    Another Algeria vs Nigeria encounter if you ask me.

    Game on…!

    • I won’t bother watching further, burning my data on heart attack football filled with mathematics and further maths. Ordering calculator from China. They have collected the first one already and I expect them to collect more 3 before the 90min. E sure me die. Ndi local league players are the best, coman cheer your brothers as they collect. Don’t forget to bring towel to clean their tears. Una musturu hear word. Ndi uchurious human beings.

      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        Do you see how physically aggressive the Setif players are? Do you ask yourself why CAF continues to allow this kind of Warlike football? What I am watching is almost like fisticuffs! African football Sha… Why are referees from North Africa even officiating the game? The referee is just ignoring the injurious aggression the Algerians are employing and any 50-50 challenge is against Enyimba…

      • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

        Habaa…calm down na. Homebased or not, they are representing Nigeria now o. Don’t be an unpatriotic fan. Lol

    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Ok….now let the permutations begin:

      Enyimba are currently 2nd on 6 points and -2 GD. They play another away match next at Benghazi again in North African winter. Trust Ahli-Benghazi to fix that match at 9pm local time again….with how poorly Enyimba performs away from home….that looks probably like another guaranteed loss…unless Fatai Osho changes something….which he has to do soon. You cant keep loosing all your away games like this. El Merriekh 0-3, Rivers Utd 0-1, Pirates 1-2, Setif 0-3…..Habaaa.
      Alhly Benghazi then moves 2nd with 7 pts. Setif haven’t been good travelers too and Orlando Pirates seems to be in gear 5 so I see Pirates winning that game at home and qualifying already with 11 pts and a game to spare (way to go).

      This comes down to the final day….Enyimba will welcome already qualified Pirates who have been good travelers in this competiton (they have survived 2 north African teams away from home so far in the group stage) whereas Enyimba has been less than convincing even at home thus far with mostly 1-0 and 2-1 wins. My heart wants to give this to Enyimba for patriotism sake…but my head says its most likely gonna end in a draw based on the strength and results of the opposition. Pirates may fancy their chances while fielding a 2nd string team knowing well they are already qualified and topping the group come what may. Ahli will go away to Setif needing at least a draw to move to 8pts while Setif would need an outright win to go 7 pts, while praying for Enyimba to lose at home to Pirates. An Enyimba home win will take them to 9pts….a draw….7pts….a loss 6pts. So which ever way, Pirates are qualifying to the next round….if it all perms out this way. Its now between the remaining 3 in the group to outdo one another for the 2nd spot. |

      Hmmmm…3 SA clubs through to the Qfinals of CAF club competitions this year…..which way NPFL…??

      Wither thou oh Enyimba….???

      Seems its time to go back to our calculators o. E don tey wey we rack our brain like this…..LMAO

      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        South African league in all honesty is the best in Africa… it is the best run league and very professional. Pockets of teams in North Africa are very good also but the general outlook and administration of SA league should be the best… As a nation we can borrow a leaf from SA regarding our domestic league. It would not be easy but Enyimba can still pull through…

        • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

          South African league is not the best league in Africa it’s just because they have a massive sponsorship and media coverage better than most African country. The North African leagues remains the best in my opinion.

      • @Dr Drey.

        This shows how good u were during the days of our quardiola in the SE…. LOL….

        This is what we use to suffer those days….

        Oga Rohr will only remain bless…

  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    No be today we the see how North Africans the behave for home game… When Enyimba won CAF Champions league back to back we still see Esperence and Al-Ahly antics… It’s not new.

    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      So is that the reason Enyimba has not tested Setif’s Goalkeeper so far (as at 75th minute and down by 3 goals already)….?
      They have been horrible so far, just as they were vs Orlando Pirates in Johannesburg too…thats the truth. Abi Orlando pirates too na North Africa…?

  • Ako Amadi 4 months ago

    No country today in Africa has 4 strikers in collective top form in European leagues like Nigeria. AFCON is ours to lose!!

  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    @Dr.Drey… The first half before the goals were scored was just like physical tussle. Agreed… ENYIMBA can and should do better. Their game was timid, poor and without bite today. Hopefully they can atleast garner 4points from their remaining two games(1 home and 1 away) to progress for their own lives. John Noble had some great saves including a double save from a spot kick… that is very commendable, he showed agility and barked out orders to his shaky defence well. Anayo Iwuala also had an average game probably because the Algerians dominated possessions but overall, he was again fearless. Those for me were the positives from Enyimba’s general poor runout today… They should dust themselves up and look ahead. One love and goodnight. You still follow me till midnight shey? I go do you back… You just sign up today say you go hound me all over, you no even let me enjoy my Sunday in silence, you know today won’t be our last shooting game… but it was mature and respectable. Anyhow sha… You still pick zero go bed… hahaha. Peace…

    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Hehehehehe…I still hound you come here bcos you were trying to cook up flimsy excuses for us, like the stage fright excuse you cooked up on behalf of Anthony Ujah, as if not be all of us dey watch the match together together so….LMAO. Even @Joel up there vex off in mic based on the nonsense he was seeing. Dont come and give us any cock and bull excuses here…..from North African behavior (inside empty stadium) you switch to physical tussle….as if 1 person fit tussle with insef…..LMAO. Just a while ago you where priding yourself as the harbinger of the truth now you wan feed pipo with FAT LIES here…..LMAO. Mr Man. shift make we see road.

      The only player that deserves a pat tonight is the Gk John Noble….else the scoreline should have been around 5 or 6 zero….though he also committed a couple of blunders notably in the 1st half. Apart from him every other Enyimba player on the pitch tonight was hopeless and helplessly running around and shooting aimlessly….including Anayo the best of the best NPFL player that you people say is good enough to play in France ligue 1…..LMAO. Una think say na defenders wey don tire after Onyekuru and Zaidu don run them ragged for 85 mins he dey go dia go face…..LMAOOooo…???.

      If to say we nor watch this match na na so you for come tell us this “truth” o. You and truth must be parallel lines. The day wey you drop come this earth e be like say truth dey beer parlour that day……LMAOooooo

      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        Anyhow… You no be stranger to intimidation tactics of North Africans to both opposing players and matchday referee… The question is… before the goals were scored up till over 28minutes of the first half… how was ES Setif players attitude and tackles on Enyimba boys? How was the referee reacting to the 50-50 duels? Unfortunately… this sort of attitudes still exist in African football… intimidation with referee ignoring calls against home teams from mostly North Africa… At this day and age, final games are still being decided on home and away basis… Very archaic method as against the way it is decided with a venue chosen to host the final from the get-go before prelim rounds and knockouts… Enyimba lost today… they will have to fight another day. Goodnight…

    • Lord AMO 4 months ago

      My broda @jimmyball, i went back to watch the complete replay of the match just to see if what you were saying about the refs bias was true. O boy, no be so o. The ref was excellent. Truth is Eyinmba were never in this match from the moment they walked onto the field looking like they didnt want to be there because of the cold or whatever. Coaches tactics were not executed as he set us up for the counter which limited the number of options when we had any attacks. However we still got rip apart in the midfield were you would have expected us to have numerical superiority. The defending was shambolic at best and in truth, if not for Noble, the scoreline should have been worse. We could not put together more than a couple of clean passes throughout the 90 minutes and not one player covered himself in glory.

      Na di way i see am sha

      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        The officiating and tackles in the first half before the goals were scored was Shit. Once they scored two… in the 2nd half the game settled and became better. However… Enyimba were poor over 90mins. The Setif players on several occasions won’t even observe fair play when Enyimba player was on the turf.

      • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

        Hahahaha….no mind am. Like say we too no watch the match. I don’t know what was shit about the officiating. The officiating was nothing short of excellent. He’s just trying to cook up fallacies and excuses as usual. Thank God we all saw the game too.
        Infact Eyimba even conceeded 2 clear penalties and committed twice more fouls that serif, yet a setif player was the only one that was booked in the match. But truth-teller here is crying about officiating…..LMAO. may be he wants the ref to send off 2 setif players b4 enyimba can string 3 passes together….LMAO.

        Ball possession – 63:37

        Pass accuracy – 81:63

        Shots on target – 10:2

        Na officiating cause all this one too….. LMAOOOOOOO

  • His goal was similar to the goal he scored against bologna. A true ball played to him put him one on one with the last defender. He used his pace to out run the defender and fired a fierce shot to the keepers lower left. Good goal. From the highlight I didn’t see him get another chance although he was full of running through out the game. I hope he scores more goals before the end of the season. And by next season hopefully, they would have created a system that creates more chances for him to score more goals.

    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      A very Yekini-esque type of goal. Just like the goal king….if you want Osimhen to score for you….iwor sha ti nor siwaju…!!!

      Once again…..e fi kini yi siwajuuuuuu…..!!!!
