He just need to play more, Dominic Calvert-lewin Isn't any better but he's having enough game ⌚ which help him to build confidence.

True. But Lewis wouldn't even be on a Liverpool FC bench & I'm pretty sure Solanke would be a 1st team player for Everton. He probably needs to go on loan like Marko Grujic.

Go Liverpool. We can do this. This Solanke of a guy is underperforming.

He's a good player but too young and inexperience. We need a back up striker for the irreplaceable firmino.

Ab-Soul used to be my favorite rapper in 2012, right now I simply don't believe in him anymore. 'Control System' is my favorite rap album of aaaaallll time still.

... Didn't Anderson. Paak already drop his 'Malibu' album (LP) like 2 years back ? ( I still have it on my system ) , he also dropped a short-length album called 'Link Up & Suede' ( which I also have), so which début are U talking of?

For some of you dumb NLs who have made comments like "the only thing a woman has to offer is sex". This is one of the sacrifices women make that go unnoticed. Besides check your mother before making such dumb statements.


This is Y I get so annoyed when I see ppl saying "your wife and kids should always come 1st". Wetin my MAMA, my papa, my siblings and some of my friends don do 4 me I no go fit ever repay dem 4 dis life.


Unfortunately, most ladies these days would expect u to always put them 1st b4 any1. Well, I would die happy putting a smile on my mum/siblings/friends face than a so called lady who never experienced 'my struggle'.


Btw, don't blame guys for saying the only things ladies have to offer is sex. U shouldn't compare a 'mum's love with a 'GF' so-called 'love'. These days the only thing 'GF' offers is sex.

Darling, Do you know the meaning of deflect? undecided
Look at your original question before you modified.


And this is my answer, now please show me how I tried to deflect, note the part in bold. undecided



And why ask me about perverts in the first place? undecided
Did you see any of my posts calling anyone a pervert? ask those who called him perverts why they called him perverts, direct this question to the right source.

I called the men misogynists. And I stand by that.



OK. That question was meant for the other lady who obviously wouldn't answer the question because we all know what the answer would be , going by 'her Logic'.

But U decided to answer the question anyway, which you didn't ( Since the answer should be >>>Yes, we should + OR + >>>> No, shouldn't ... Before any explanation). What you did is what I call 'sitting on the fence'.


Funny thing is Yoga pics most times shows the curves of a lady just the way a gym pic shows the built of a guy, if talking about the curves of a lady is seen as sexualization then talking of the built of a guy should be seen the same way.

I get your 'drift' tho. You may think these guys ( Nairalanders) dislike ladies by their remarks/post but no, they don't.

Everyone is just tired of ladies playing the gender card @ every given opportunity.

Always Making a mountains out of molehills.

'Much ado about nothing'

You all should learn not to take offence @ every slight remark.

Answer to your question, she didn't post of apic of her ass, she posted a yoga pose, OK her ass is showing,
that's the pose. Should she cut off her ass? undecided
If she posted a pic of her ass and started complaining. I won't defend her.

why rush to give her sexual compliments? All right you've given her the compliment, she then tells you she doesn't like it, then you proceed to threaten her with more verbal sexual harrasment and tell her that you can to speak to her any which way you like? Why?




So you know what they did was wrong. undecided




Did she tell you she couldn't take it? Did she post anywhere that she can't take it? She just spoke out against something she doesn't like.
She has the right to speak out against the bad, she has the right to clap back against comments she doesn't like.
You people love to play this card of "I can say whatever I want" but at the same time try and restrict the right of the other person to say whatever the person wants.

If you feel you can compliment her body however you want she has the right to reply you however you want also,

DEAL WITH IT!!!!!


Dear, I asked a simple question which you've managed to deflect. I'm not concern about the compliment she got or all the other post here which support or criticize the guy.

I'm going to asked the question again, and I really hope u answer ( sentiment/gender aside).... So, here goes...


According to you she posted a yoga pose

So, if a guy post a Gym pose of his chest and abs and ladies decide to compliment him, should we call the ladies perverts?

Question for you ladies. If a guy post pictures of his chest and abs and a lady decide to compliment him would you call her a 'Pervert'?

CeeKay17:
I don't think it's right to complement a lady sexually except you've established some level of familiarity with her.

True!!!. I have never done that in over 10 years I've been on social media, and I will never do that!! I know how easy it is for ladies to play the gender card, self-respect is something I never joke with!


@Topic. What I still don't get is why people choose to live in a fantasy world. In Life there's the good, the bad and the ugly. This applies too to social media. Expecting to get the 'Good' only is unrealistic.

If you choose to be on social media be ready for both sides, it's a public forum for crying out loud!!!! If U can't take the 'bad' and 'Ugly' then shut down your account, its that simple!!!!

Sports / Re: Nigeria FF Boss Questions Caf's Awards Criteria After Moses Snub by ebosse(m): 6:24pm On Dec 21, 2017
andrew444:


Okay fine Gerard bale and Suarez never won he league,how many times has a non league winners got it?its very rare,you sound like a Liverpool fan,Mr Sentiment
.
.

Y'all should stop this childish argument. I love Moses but sentiment outside he was not on the same 'INDIVIDUAL LEVEL' with Salah or Auba, Mane did well for the 1st half of the year but has fallen off since , same thing with moses.

Both salah and Aubu has been outstanding all year long!

Bale won the English best player (twice), Suarez, Gerrard, Robin Van Persie ( playing for Arsenal) . None of these players won the League apart from RVP who won the award again with man Utd ( and the league also)

JJ okocha was nominated for the award ( top 6) while playing for Bolton who finished #17th that season.

Charlie Adams was nominated for the award (top 6) while playing for blackpool who got relegated that season.

Do you know sadio Mane is on the EPL team 11, while moses couldn't even make the team.

ThESE awardS are for individual performance,

that was why CR7 won the best player award the season he won nothing ( B.Munich won everything that season). Yet compare his individual performance that year you would see no one comes close.

Same thing with messi winning the 2010 award.

I REPEAT , THIS IS AN INDIVIDUAL AWARD !!!!


Finally go check for the complete list of the just concluded 'FIFA Best player Award 2017' (which CR7 won), U would see both Aubumeyang, salah and Mane are waaaaay ahead of moses on the list, Even 'the world' says these players were better this year, but no, since moses is Nigerian then he must win it.

V. Moses wouldn't even finish 3rd. I like victor moses a lot but sentiment aside Aubumayeng had a better individual year than any other African player. Followed closely by salah.

Moses was part of a winning team, that's all. Go check the recent FIFA world best players award, both aubameyang, salah and mane finished ahead of Moses on the list.

Mo' took Egypt to final of the AFCON in 2017

Mo' almost singlehandedly qualify Egypt for their 1st world cup in over 20 years in 2017.

He performed better than every other player on the list ( Aubumeyang aside) in 2017.

Football is about stats and records my guy.... Pele is number 1 ever because of his stats and records.....

Hope you know if Liverpool wins the league, Salah will be crown EPL best player if he continues his performance... right??


To answer your question >> Yes, salah would because he deserves to be up there. Now, if there was no salah in the team and LFC wins the league then No one in the team deserves it on current form based on how Much De bruyne as performed.



Do You know? ..... That Gareth Bale won the EPL best player award TWICE while playing for Spurs. In those 2 seasons Tottenham finished outside the top 3 and won nothing.

Do You Know?..... Robin Van Persie won the EPL best player while playing for Arsenal, in a season they struggled to finish 3rd and won nothing.

What about Steven Gerrard ?.... He never won the league yet he has an ' English league best player trophy' plus he has appeared most in the 'English League Team of the Season'

Luis Suarez ? grin. I'm sure U already know this.


This just goes to prove the point we have been trying to make to U that these are individual accolades and the goals and assist stats has little to do with it , like in the case of Bale who didn't finish those season with the highest goals/ assist yet won it. All you had to do was watch him play and U would understand why he won.

Fcck Fifa.com!!!

If by now you don't know FIFA tries to be diplomatic with its praise and choices, and tries to honour old players, you know nothing.

I can see the clips of CR7 and Cruyff.

Cruyff has nothing on him. Cruyff is a rung below and I am being generous because he is a pioneer that has no one else too look at to develop himself. He has natural talent and developed an epic style that has been improved by future generations. If Cruyff was playing today and he played what he used to play then now, I would not even put him in that rung, I would drop him another rung to the levels of Figo and Brian Laudrup.

I would agree CR7 is not top 3, he is 4th in my opinion behind Messi, Maradona and Pele. He is the ultimate goalscorer that only Messi and Pele have matched.


I may agree with U, based on the fact I never really watched Cruyff played.

I watched the YouTube video of Roberto Baggio the other day and I was screaming my head off, I asked myself "why isn't Baggio celebrated as much as these other players" ? The answer obviously is because he wasn't as awesome as the YouTube clips made him. ( nonetheless, he still won a 'FiFA world best trophy') .


So , I don't believe all these short clips. I rather watch the entire game.

So, You may actually be right about CR7 being better than Cruyff.

CR7 not in top 3.... who then is... Messi??

What has Messi won that Ronaldo hasn't won??[

I've addressed the bolded on my 1st reply to U.

As for the 1st question u asked , Fifa rates Pele as #1,maradona #2, Johan cryuff #3, L. Messi #5. Cr7 not in the top five . check it out on Fifa.com.

Almost all other football sites/blogs founded b4 the both of Us were born and had the opportunity to watch the game from years back , actually rates Pele #1 and messi #2, there are few exceptions with Messi as #3, while Maradona #2. But messi always in top 3 along Pele who's always #1, while CR7 is never in the top #5.

Forget the stats, Watch the game like these guys have done, like I've done, then U would see that football is more than who scored or who made the final pass.

Exactly why I rate Ngolo Kante and Kevin De bruyne as the two best players in the league right now, Even if the stats don't prove that.

BTW, I'm a Liverpool Fan , I should be rating salah higher, but no . I watch the game I see what kante and De bruyne do. Funny thing is Ive actually been full of praise for both of them for more than 2.5 years now ( before Guardiola, before Conte) , it has taken some stats for the rest of the so-called fans to see this.

Bro, this is were U r getting it wrong. Greatest player award ( just like ballon d'or) is an individual award not a team award.


John O'Shea won more than john terry yet you can never put them in the same class, one is regarded as one of the best to ever grace the EPL , the other is regarded as a player who played for a great team.

Football is more than who won.

That is why , every one (atleast 99% of football fans) rates JJ Okocha who never won anything more than Obi Mikel who is one of the most decorated African footballer .

That's why you have to always look pass the stats and actually watch the game.

I watched Henry played , and only 2 players ( CR7 and Luis Suarez) played @ the same level. Both CR7 and LS didn't stay in the EPL long enough.

Before, I got my job I used to own a 'Viewing centre' and I was forced to show every single barca/Madrid matches each season, that is all 38 LA Liga matches for both Barca and Madrid every season and I can tell you with all certainty that Messi is Supernatural !!!!

If only you had Watch every Single Messi match for barca few seasons ago U would have been screaming that Messi is the greatest player of all time like a lot of us are doing right now.

This is like saying Sir Alex Ferguson wouldn't have succeeded if he had left the EPL to another League.

They remain underground because you lots don't appreciate nor hype good music. Y'all prefer pangolo music. Stop complaining. We the few little know these good musicians and appreciate them. Follow them on social media to encourage them. You are what you listen to. Music is a taste. Going through your playlist can give a slight insight into your personality.

I keep wondering why he hasn't shot videos for "Gbese" ft. Trey song and "Dirty wine" ft. Ty dollar sign and "One for me"

In all, the boi is making so much money from streams. Europeans, Americans are enjoying the new sound while some Nigerians are complaining because he didn't do the normal noisemaking songs.

Using spotify minimum payout per stream, 0.006, Wizkid will earn about 600,000 USD singlehandedly from streams in 2017..

Ofcourse shes going to have numerous advances , All she has to do is be upfront about her relationship status. In this case since the dude already knows , she should have blocked him, It is that simple!!! Obviously she's interested that is y she didn't.

This is what I do. I live, eat, shiit, sleep, breathe music spanning MULTIPLE genre with a library of over 5 TB of songs and counting. Resigned a professional career to pursue my DJ inclinations, so please, don't tell me about 'sorry you're a DJ'. I know my art man! Every aspect of it!

Obviously, you did not get my meaning (I like to think so). You move with the times in music if you plan on being a commercial artist. If you want to remain in a niche, underground, no problem. But, if you must remain commercially viable, you MUST follow the zeitgeist. Look at R Kelly, Lionel Richie, Ronald Isley, Charlie Wilson and a host of others who tuned their sound to remain relevant to the mainstream folks purchasing music.

Save you want to condemn your career to touring in clubs and whatnot, you have to stay relevant and pander to what the stadium filling populace want to listen to even if to you it is garbage and a decimation of the 'art form' (ask KRS 1 how market despite all his hullabaloo about hip hop being watered down and whatnot by artistes like Nelly and others, Nelly took him to the cleaners [dedicated a hit song No.1 to addressing KRS's 'bickering']).

Except you want to buy your own music, give the people what they want!. Sultan failed in this respect, always talking about how nowadays artistes are shallow, poor lyrics etc. The people already know this yet they want these artistes anyway. Endorsement fall on them, shows, etc. His formula should have been a blend of the so called 'rubbish' current artistes are dishing out and conscious lyrics he purportedly brings to the masses . That way, he can smile to the bank, remain commercially relevant while still keeping fans like you.

P.S. Will be lauching my website soon. When it's done, hope you'd come around. Issues like this, reviews and others will be treated.


@bolded

Exactly!!!

The song ' Pana ' by ' Tekno' has one of the dopest beat I've heard, All he needed to do was throw in something meaningful and it would still get the attention it got ( because of the beat).


2face Idibia has been doing this for years and HE IS STILL HERE'


Artistes saying all ppl want is a dope/ party beat is an excuse to cover up how inept they really are.

I don't agree with her for saying 97%... She should have said 99%.But they have great beats though. You know people are moved by beats in Nigeria and not by lyrics. Whether you talk nonsense or not, people will still buy it if the beats are wow


U can actually have both! .. For example, check out that new timaya song with phyno and olamide, they tried to pass a message on a dope beat, and they did!


Truth is most artiste ( Home and abroad) are not good enough so they just hide behind the beat.
