The 2014/15 English Barclays Premier League kicks off on Saturday, 16 August 2014.
The attention will be on world class footballers in the elite division, as well as those in the second-tier; the Championship (which kicked off one week earlier).
Nigerian players are also on parade and could make an impact or otherwise for their respective clubs.
From John Mikel Obi at Chelsea to Osaze Odemwingie at Stoke City (with Victor Moses possibly joining him on a season-long loan), Brown Ideye and Victor Anichebe at West Brom; Kenneth Omeruo at Championship side, Middlesbrough (on loan from Chelsea), and Jude Odion Ighalo at Watford (on loan from Granada), and probably Kelechi Iheanacho and Chidiebere Nwakili (Manchester City); Chuba Akpom, Semi Ajayi and John Iwobi (Arsenal), Super Eagles players will be gearing up for what promises to be an exciting season.
What are your expectations from the Nigerian players this season in England?
Which player(s) do you think will shine or flop as the case may be, or might not even get playing time due to intervening issues; poor form, injury, competition for roles, etc ?
Would the World Cup impact on the performance of some of the Eagles stars or do you think those who missed the World Cup will be fired up to do well for their clubs – perhaps to prove Stephen Keshi wrong for World Cup blackout?
