He can be listed as English on the EPL site but it doesn't deny the fact that he is also Nigerian. Saka was born to Nigerian parents in England. Saka is eligible for Nigeria. If he is not Nigerian in anyway, he won't be eligible or referred to as Nigerian by any site at all.

Transfermrkt listed his citizenship as both English and Nigerian and the young man says he is Nigerian and not British-Nigerian. I will ultimately go with what the young man says until he eventually turns out for England's three lions (if that will ever happen). Finito.

Here's Saka profile on premier league and UEFA Europa league official sites..
He is listed as English..

He hasn't featured for the 3 lions yet,but he has played for their youth team,so internationally,he is English..

dude stop reading my thoughts cheesy

my prayer is to meet them in the finals of the next tournament they are hosting. Osimhen will score a hatrick as we beat the indomitable lions 4-0 before a packed yaounde crowd with paul biya squeezing face as he hands over the trophy to captain Ekong as e ma dami duro plays over the stadium sound system grin

The daily mail are reporting that Everton would be willing to listen to offers for Iwobi this summer..

Maybe this confirms that he isn't in Ancelotti's plan this season...

25 years is too long na..
Buy back clauses don't usually last that long...he is 19,BTW..

I think arsenal are asking for £15m ..
As the transfer market is already inflated, everybody wan cash out...

I think buy back clauses are binding, 15 million is too much for an unproven player

Lol... In those days players did not do stats-padding. But these days, every player knows almost everyone is looking at the stats and don't wanna know if you can even juggle the ball. Hahahahaha...

That is why the likes of KDB, Bruno Fernandes or even Messi fit vex for him striker if he does not bury one of his five clearly created chances in a game. You will be hurting their assists stats. Lol


I tell myself sometimes that if Stats were used "only" to actually judge Zinedine Zidane, you may see and read Slanders of how KDB (majorly a CAM) is better than Zidane (also a CAM). And this would likely be coming from people who didn't even watch Zidane. Lol

Zidane - 615 club appearances, 117 goals, 115 assists.

KDB - 451 club appearances, 104 goals, 173 assists.


International football: Zidane - 31 goals in 108 caps.
KDB - 19 goals in 74 caps so far.


Now looking at the stats, someone born in 2000 and began watching football maybe around 2010 would start arguing with you for nothing. Hahahahaha.

And I deliberately use KDB in this example b'cos he is probably the best Midfielder in the world right now and I love him. But can I say he surpasses Zidane? Can I say he is better? I also saw Zidane thankfully and I love him also.


So it is things like this that causes most people today to really talk down on Okocha. First they look at his Club stats... Then they tell you he won nothing or won little. But mehn... Okocha was such a world class beauty anytime anyday.


Icon4s:


You know, sometimes when you look back at Jay-Jay Okocha's magical moments, you cannot but wonder how he performed such magic.

I just look at People that underrate his qualities and shake my head. In terms of abilities Jay-Jay was on a different planet from other players.

Arsenal is crazy to ask for such amount. How many senior games has Folarin even played? How many EPL goals sef?

I like that Folarin kid and I want him out of Arsenal ASAP but it seems Arsenal is playing hard ball. I personally feel Folarin is better than Nketiah having watched both but Nketiah is just the lucky one. Folarin needs a place where he will continue his growth and be given first team opportunities abeg and not this thing Arsenal is doing with him.

If Arsenal aren't willing to sell, Sheffield might go for Brewster..

It's not good that the guy has no senior appearance yet at 19... They should at least let him go on loan...

I think it is officially okay now to press the Worry and Panic button on Iwobi.

He is not listed for Everton today also in a League cup game we all know they will win comfortably.

Now I am genuinely worried for him. If he is injured or unfit, we would have news of that by now. What is happening to our Eagles' #10? Was really hoping Carlo will give him a chance sef but e be like say no room for that.


Please if you have any info on what could be happening to our lad Iwobi, please share coz I am not happy he is absent from the squad today.

Yeah, Rhian Brewster. The lad that wanted to threaten Osimhen's U-17 record. Ended up with 8 in the end. Lol

Brewster is a fine lad. Your lad. Sheffield might land him if they miss out on Folarin but I read Liverpool are still considering whether it would be a loan or a sale. I don't think you guys will sell off such a fine young lad yet would you?

As for Folarin..... Arsenal is just being unnecessarily greedy. No senior appearance. No single EPL showing yet you want 15Million. Infact that is business wickedness. Unreasonable price to place on the lad.

How many can relate grin

We lived in a very big house then with about 42 tenants. Whenever we score, you can only imagine how the scenery erupts in mirthful chatters.

We'd run to the balcony, shouting "goal" describing how the player had scored before returning to watch the match. grin

After the match, you'd see us moving from street to street disturbing the peace of the neighborhood.

Nostalgia!! grin grin

Sheffield will definitely not pay what arsenal are asking for....
So it's either he goes out on loan or remain with the u-23..

Maybe he should hand in a transfer request...

Can't find any news of him being injured or not fit.
So it's either he has been frozen totally by Ancelloti or he is on his way out of the club...
