    … Dear CSN editor, Ferencvaros is a Hungarian Club and not Norwegian. It was the club of our great Olympian Teslim Fatusi… a great baller of his time. Please proof-read your writeups before posting as CSN is the hallowed forum where 9ja ball fans lounge… anyways to Onazi Ogenyi congrats and it appears dry bones are rising again… I hope Onazi makes a concrete move to a suitable league this summer or latest January 2022… One love!

      …Watch Eddy Ogenyi Onazi and his team’s highlights from the game!


      Coach Gernot Rohr should know this guy Onazi was vice captain to Mikel Obi and all of sudden was cast off the team even though he is now fit and seem to be doing fine at a time we lacking in good defensive midfielders… his team also has a very nice jersey pattern and style that i think Nigeria can copy and finally have a jersey as dreaded and particular as the likes of Argentina, Croatia, Paraguay, Peru with iconic signature jersey. We need to model a jersey style and make it Nigeria’s identity… what Amaju Pinnick has been experimenting with Nike with are very whack and non-idealistic to say the least from my own point of view though… one love!

        …in another news… congratulations to Abdullahi Shehu… a quiet achiever, whom some of us consider good to even be allowed to show his real game in our defensive midfield pairing every now and then! You are loved brother Shehu… keep winning! Link…

        Golazo by Onazi! I can’t tell how fit he is though, not from this short clip. Can an oldie but goodie Onazi find his way back into the SE?
        Time will tell!

        • JimmyBall 2 weeks ago

          I think Onazi has been fit since he went to Denmark and then ended up at Lithuanian Champs Zalgris. I still believe he is better than Shehu and Etebo in Defensive midfield position… We cannot be calling him old because he played U-17 with Umeruo as well as Kayode Larry and Ramon Azeez.

          • pompei 2 weeks ago

            Agreed. At 28, he is definitely not old. I called him oldie because he’s been there, done that. Not a newbie.

        You should know the PE teacher is not interested in him and the league he features in. It is players from Kano pillars he is ready to accept, and those from cyprus and saudi arabia

        • pompei 2 weeks ago

          Talking about past midfield prospects, I wonder what’s up with Nosa Igiebor? At 30, he should be in his prime. Still recall his wonder goal against Venezuela. Currently plying his trade in Cyprus, like Shehu Abdullahi. But has been no where near Rohr’s radar. Doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon.

    In another news, Kelechi Nwakali returns to Huesca for pre-season 1 WEEK late.
    Friday wey go good na from Monday we dey know. When this boy gets dumped to the bench now people who are good at cooking up innuendos will say its because he is black.
    You nor go euros, you nor go copa, you nor play friendlies, you dey return to your club for preseason 1 week late. E be like say e never ring for this boy head say lateness is not a culture tolerated in any professional world. This is a boy whose brother was sacked from Kalmar for similar reasons.
    Na sidon look we dey

    • Chris 2 weeks ago

      Top clubs are yet to sign him and he is showing us how e go be. A good businessman will not bank on him to be successful.
      Not that this boy will never play for his motherland but by the time his life is taking shape for discipline issues…hmmm! wasted years!

    • JimmyBall 2 weeks ago

      If this report about Nwakali is true… Hmmmm. HE will be doing himself a lot of disservice because new would-be managers will always want player assessment and attitude opinion from previous clubs… the young sure has not learnt from the past… he needs act professional for his own good… Wetin who too the find for Owerri sef?

    • pompei 2 weeks ago

      ONE WEEK LATE? A whole week? Did he call to check in, and keep his employers informed of his planned itinerary? Regardless, showing up one week late is inexcusable. It’s not acceptable anywhere. Even a CEO can’t show up a week late to work. Kelechi, why na? Why? Professionalism is non negotiable. This is gross disrespect and disregard for the club, his coaches and colleagues. The disrespect and disregard is likely unintentional, but that is how it will be perceived. You have to show up on time and deliver deliverables, in business and in sports. I wonder what his excuse is for this.
      Hope Leeds don’t look elsewhere because of this or other issues.
