    A goal and an assist. Good job Kelechi. It seems the coach now know how to use him. When he operates from the right wing like his U17 days, he’s a joy to watch. That assist to Vardy was marvelous.

    • this Iheanacho is just a flash in the pan. I will choose Anthony Okpotu ahead of him all day any day.
      All these people singing Iheanacho’s praises are starting to piss me off. go and respect your elders before coming here

    CSN does not report about Stephen Eze! He’s always on from start to finish week after weeks at Lokomotiv Plovdiv meanwhile Balogun is now a bench warmer for Brighton as far as Lewis Dunk is fit. We forget that Stephen Eze is the Direct replacement for Balogun considering Balogun’s age, we should begin to follow up and encourage this guy(Eze). Also, Godfrey Oboaboana and Musa Mohammed were on from start to finish for HNK Gorica’s 1-0 win today. Congrats to Ihenacho. The news that gladdens my heart most this weekend was that of VICTOR OSHIMEN. He scored his first league goal for Sporting Charleroi. His goal would have been the winning goal, No thanks to TWO RED CARDS that Sporting Charleroi got and there opponents equalised. He was replaced in the 90th minute. More game time, that my prayer for him. Congrats to my club also for there emphatic win today against Cardiff City, 5-0 no be moi-moi. Proudly a #Cityzen #Up Man City

    Great from own Kelechi, I always knew it just a matter of time, you will prove your doubters wrong. 1 goal and 2 assists in your last 2games is impressive. Keep working hard so you can cement your name in the starting 11.

    Lets hope Balogun is not condemned to the bench on long term basis. l noticed that his ‘reaction’ span is on down word trend recently. Or, he would have to sit it out during our match with Libya early next month . At 31, could well be that age is catching up with him, though.

  • As for that Balogun if u could join a team like Brighton and u re not guarantee first game time don’t know why he has to join he had better remained at Cologne self @ Ashy Ashy pls try to see d good in Iheanacho..

    • Chairmanfemi 3 months ago

      The problem Balogun has is the English Coach. He prefers his two English defenders (Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk) to him as far as they are both fit. I think he only bought him with the intention of using him whenever any of those duo are injured.

    • @Tayo, I like Iheanacho. I was just sharing a joke with AY.
