Hopefully Rangers will have some enforcers in their side...
I think sending him up their to toughen up is a great idea. Modric always said that he loan in a hard a nails league. (Bosnia?) was a good foundation for the prem. I always remember Ronaldo getting destroyed in his first season too. He clearly has the skills so I'm sure this will help him hugely.
Match ratings - Ball 7/10, Oduwa 6/10
Match Report - Oduwa gets plenty of mentions, 2 Ayr players carded for fouls on Oduwa with Oduwa also yellow carded.
I disagree - these burly scotch will be targeting him and closing him down quickly and with venom. The experience will leave him a tougher player. It will also help have 50k sign his name every other week - his confidence will be sky high and, if he gets them promoted, it will leave him wanting more.
I'm sure Ball already knows that haha. Nice interview for those who haven't seen this
They'll probably be on the bench but Rangers game v hibs at Ibrox on Sunday is a sell out. Great experience if they can get on the pitch.
Why bench? They both started the last match. Oduwa in particular seems like a fan favourite so if imagine their fans will want him on the pitch
It was a Challenge Cup match, I'd expect them to go back with the team that started the last league match but we shall see.
I wouldn't be suprised to see them on the bench again today.
I think both will play their way into the team at somepoint, hopefully sooner rather than later
Both on the bench
59' SUB: Nathan Oduwa comes on to replace Barrie McKay - resounding reception for both players from the Gers fans inside Ibrox. 0:0
79' @RangersFC breaking at speed down the left hand side. In to the feet of Oduwa who cut inside and tried a shot, but it's wide of goal.
Rangers won 1-0, attendance 49,220 so Oduwa certainly gets experience of playing in front of large crowds
Both starting tonight in the cup
@RangersFC: 31' Nathan Oduwa skips his way forward into the box before crossing for Shiels, but his effort on the slide is cleared for a corner.
@RangersFC: 36' Another great run by Nathan Oduwa, this time his ball in is cleared by Scott Smith for a corner.
@RangersFC: 37' Ball reaches James Tavernier out on the right and he finds Dominic Ball on the penalty spot but his first-time effort is over the bar.
@RangersFC: 40' BOOKING: Chris O'Neil sees his name taken for pulling back Oduwa.
@RangersFC: 50' David Cox goes through the back of Oduwa out on the touchline, and somehow the Airdrie man escapes without a booking.
@RangersFC: 51' Space for Oduwa 25-yards from goal - he takes on the shot but he's off-balance and it sails well over.
@RangersFC: 56' Jamie Bain is booked for a foul on Oduwa.
@RangersFC: 77' Ball forward by McKay to Clark who nods on for Oduwa, but Parry is lively and gathers before the Rangers man can get a touch on the ball
Good post from a Rangers forum:
Let's see if at least the referees can tell who's who #ChamboGibbs #OduwaZezalem #wedontalllookalike #Toofunny
Does seem like a nice kid, always got a smile on his face.
Every interview I've ever seen from him he seems so happy like he almost wants to laugh. Like a kid living his dream when he's interviewed. He has really upped his social media presence since joining Rangers and is really interacting with fans, following his mate Chadli
For him to develop at Spurs he'll need to be given playing time...but that won't happen if many fans get their wishes: i.e. have Spurs stock up with (expensive) attackers (i.e. buying even more attackers). Don't get me wrong, I am not against Spurs buying another qualilty striker but I won't mind either if Spurs enter the season with the strikers already at the club. Players like Owuda need to be given time at Spurs to develop - including regular minutes.
I think you'll find most fans wanted him to be given a chance in the first team.
Separate names with a comma.
