Yak makes scoring return

Yak makes scoring return

Posted: 26 August 2009 Time: 09:20 am

Yakubu Aiyegbeni made a goal scoring return to the pitch on Tuesday night, scoring one and assisting a second as Everton Reserves ran out 3-0 winners over Burnley Reserves.

Yak, who has been out since last November with an Achilles injury, opened the scoring within the opening thirty one seconds.   The Nigerian latched onto James McCarten's long ball and calmly side footed home.   He then set up Everton's second with an intelligent pass to Dan Gosling who calmly steered home in the seventh minute.   The Blues were in full control and Hope Akpan, who has just committed his international future to Nigeria, could have extended the lead soon after Gosling's effort.   The two sides exchanged penalty claims either side of the half hour mark as the game became more evenly matched.   Yakubu was taken off after 69 minutes, and his replacement Cody Arnoux added a third on 82 minutes to seal a convincing win.

The Yak is back! Competition in the SE can only push him to give us his club form. If he does, I assure you we'll win next years Nations Cup

Yakubu, you are welcome what about aniechebe. I don't like seeing you injuring because I know that you are the only player in super eagle who can challenge (slap) Amodu and his crews if they misbehave. May God guide you through out this season?

"just feed the yak & we will be home & dry", nice to see you back after all this months in rehab....Eneramo should perform to stake a claim to the squad or else ?????...we do expect the level of competition to rise to the next level anyway!

@Mike1,I believe you have been severally admonished for your use of derogatory words to qualify our players. The phrase ''absolutely useless'' is an unfair terminology to use to describe any human.Why we all understand that the idiosyncracies of individuals governs their thought and expression patterns which is responsible for the varied degrees with which we react to issues; I believe it is a ''categorical imperative'' of morals that we should all strive to be civil in language at all cost.Please see reasons with those against your style of argumentation, and strive to hid to advice.
Your second posting is reasonably good.
Thanks.

I'm happy with Yakubu getting back to his scoring form; one can only hope he replicates this whenever he features in the SE. Thank God there's no MRI test in SE else Nigeria won't have quality players in SA 2010..

Na wa for u o billion. Your comments really show how you reason. What has MRI test got to do with being a quality player or not? I doubt if you have ever played the game of football in your life.

why do people have to say rubbish everytime do you honestly think that etuhu or akpala can bring anything to super eagles hell no etuhu has been playing since 2007 and has never been impressive
the same with akpala so please stop this nonsense
let me anaylis this 4players
utaka-good player before but right now he is rubbish very lazy and annoying
AKPALA- never se material has had many chances but never impressive in any game
NWANERI-rubbish has not even played in 5months
SHITTU- 50/50 good against big players like drogba,koller but bad against technical players still important for se. so fans if you want to argue about amodu say something that will make sence not like saying amodu should call etuhu for kaita like if any of them will make the big difference to me i don't know why we have 4 defensive midfilders. before the game amodu please tell your family you love them very much because if we lose hmmmmmmmmm thats all i could say
