    Am really happy for Ideye, he’s a fantastic player! However, Chelsea are set to off-load Mikel Obi to an Italian club to make way for 35 million pounds Fabregas and 60 million pounds Pogba. Mikel is currently worth 5million pounds.
    Obviously, I don’t even know how he managed to stay this long with Chelsea, or is it because he has won 1 EPL, 1 CL, 1 EL, 1 AFCON, 4 FA cups and one league cup? Lately, this dude has been more negative in play than expected. #POORMIKEL

    Westbrom lost lots of fans and there fan base reduced bcos immediately odenwingie left the club the whole of nigerians that was interested on peter stop being a fan, so i guess signing ideye will bring back the lost souls and thats why chelsea dont want to sell mikel bcos chelsea’s fan base is totally crowded with nigerians both on facebook, twitter and chelsea’s website and if yu think am lying go visit chelsea’s facebook page, yu will think a nigerian is the owner of the page and this is possible bcos mikel is in the club…..

    The main news item here is in the comments section. Instead of concentrating on Ideye’s transfer, some are worrying over Mikel, who is obviously holidaying somewhere. Some Nigerians though! If the boy commits suicide tomorrow (God absolutely forbid!) or decides not to play for Nigeria again; we’ll say his arrogant and ungrateful. Surely, he performed badly at the World Cup, but even some good players and teams did not fair better; let’s spare the guy some slack. He can get better, if we pray so for him; not insisting that he performs like MAGIC MESSI. Mikel is Mikel, and can only be a better Mikel; if he makes efforts to improve and we motivate him to train harder and strive for a club that will help him improve.
