I saw in inter.it in SQUAD his name is there already.

Full name: Obi Joel Chukwuma
Born in: Lagos (Nigeria)
Birthday: 22 May 1991

I don't know more about this player, hope he is good!

He is obi mikkel's cousin. Before any one accuse mou of bringing him here, he was part of the youth setup well before mou arrived at inter.

I hope at least one of Obi or Krhin will make it to the squad for next season. And hopefully can do santons. I've understood Krhin is a central midfielder with offensive upside, meaning he could be AM or offensive CM in our 3-man-midfield.

But I have no idea what is Obi's position.

Cafe, why are we moving these players to a new section? They may be in the squad list or part of the pre season training, but they are still youth players, they should stay there until they make the full transition. So far only Santon and Balotelli have that right.

Mou has said they are part of the first team squad for this season. Said it two months ago already. The fact that they were added to the squad just confirms it.

Well I thought that because they are part of the first team at the moment, they should belong to this section. It's also easier to comment different players during the pre-season when every player of the team is in the same section. Of course I move back those players who go back to the Primavera after the pre-season (most probably Destro at least, like Mourinho has said).

I think he was just joking and Hal is right.

I think it's okay they are considered Inter players and not youth team players as they train with the first team and not with the youth team. When they go back to the youth team, the corresponding threads will be moved back to Youth teams section.

After all Aquafresca and all the others are gone, why we should think Destro Obi, Krhin and Belec don't face the same future ?

Isn't Branca and Mourinho morrons? If they let go of Aqua, Bolzoni and Megiorini, why we should expect they will try to do something with the ones we got this year ?

Okay get the fuck out, your not funny. Probably people think now that we've already ditched some youngsters, they will keep these who will come for the pre-season. Seriously, your trolling is idiotic and it's not funny at all.

Well any grown-up can't find anything funny in that trolling which is continuing not just in one thread. Everyone probably can catch the point but the actual "fun" part there is very limited. That is very typical, trying to draw attention and amusement all around by exaggerating completely "opponents" arguments. We should really be more mature than that here.

This kid looks like a keeper, I was impressed with his performance today, much better than that moron Vieira...

It's ironic because most of the hype out of the youth trio has been on Krhin and Destro, and Obi comes out of nowhere to impress lol.

That was a very harsh red card, so I wouldn't start thinking he is red-card prone...

CafeCordoba
20 Jul 09, 06:16
Yeah that was a normal situation where Obi came to the opponent too hard. Yellow would have been fine. Obi looked pretty good yesterday. Probably though Muntari will play where Obi would play but at least we have a good replacement for Muntari now. Even if we need an actual starting replacement for him / Stankovic.

lonewolf19
21 Jul 09, 01:27
Does he play as a left midfielder? Is he more of a winger or more all around type like Muntari?

What I watched he's a defensive type of midfielder... so Bolzoni out Obi in

CafeCordoba
21 Jul 09, 05:34
First Obi played in central midfield, then he moved more to left when Krhin entered.

Rimpel
21 Jul 09, 12:03
this guy is really small, he shouldn't play DM IMO. He could play in Muntari's/Deki's role.

Cambi and Mascherano both are about 178, thats not facking small. some of guys seriously dont know what they r talking about.. and Obi is not 165 as mentioned, cuz ive seen a lot of pics of him, he seems to be in Cordobas height, and Cordoba is 173

BTW, Obi is club-trained so we are fine with CT players. Orlandoni, Santon, Balotelli and Obi.

But at the moment we have only three association trained players: Toldo, Materazzi, Muntari. Cassano anyone?

lonewolf19
24 Jul 09, 07:41
We also have Khrin. I think if you are qualified as CT you are also qualified as association trained right?

CafeCordoba

That's correct. But Krhin or Belec don't qualify, they came to the club in January 2007.

Destro is one option, but that would mean we have to seriously reduce the size of the forward department if Destro was taken to the first team regularly. I'm talking about getting rid of everyone of Obinna, Suazo, Mancini.

Of course other option is to just put Destro to the list and drop Suazo/Mancini from there (Obinna is 99,9% gone anyway).

It's a shame because he impressed me alot more than Krhin in preseason, he looked pretty sharp.

I guess he's a victim of our playing style more than anything else, we have limited use for wingers at the moment...

He's not a winger he plays centrally.

The_Eradicator

Really, the majority of times I have seen him play (mostly in America for preseason) he has been in right midfield.

thatdude

Maybe he can play on the outside of midfield in a diamond but he's definitely not a 4-3-3 type winger.

Benitez must really like a lot of our youth, I doubt Obi gets to much playing time a long with Nwankwo. He must be planning some heavy rotation if hes going to keep Mascherano, Cambiasso, Motta, Stankovic, Mariga, Nwankwo, and Obi for 2 positions!

junior55
24 Jun 10, 18:17
@thatdude
Obi actually is more a winger than a CM . He was tried in the primavera this year as a cm because we were using a 433 and the winger position was occupied by alibec and stevanovic so that obi was the creating force coming from the back....
As for the rotation , yes rafa does a lot of rotation and this is the bigget reason i like him.

Anyway having obi and nwankwo in the first team does not mean that they are going to play . Like in last season with destro,obi belec they are going with the team in the summer training to get experience but they probably will play with primavere although i would prefer obi to be loaned because i'm sure he would explode like biabiany...

thatdude
24 Jun 10, 20:51
I'm think Obi is to old to for Primavera now. He will probably end up being like Khrin was this year, just a squad player. From what I've seen he's the least talented of Alibec, Destro, Khrin...etc. Being with the first team means that you are not playing a majority of the Primavera games. If you noticed last season the only one who trained with the team the entire season was Rene and he only played the tournament with the Primavera.

The_Eradicator
01 Jul 10, 02:05
I rate Obi higher than Krhin I hope we keep him, Obi has an engine on him, he never stops running, with plenty of pace and is capable of creating chances.

All Krhin ever does is back passes and from side to side.... he has zero goal threat and zero chance of assists, I don't get where this "new Lampard/Gerrard" tag came from, maybe when he was playing under 13's or something, we don't need any more mediocre DM/CMs.

Il Maestro
01 Jul 10, 02:25
Not to be rude, just wondering: how often have you seen Krhin? If you just have watched him a couple of times, I don't think that's a large enough basis to judge him and call him mediocre. It's a reason he's with the "big guys".

I know this question seems like I'm doubting(in lack of a better word. I'm tired) you, but I'm not. Just wondering if you know Krhin well and can say what his strenghts and weaknesses is.

I've seen enough of him, to say I don't believe the hype around him. He gets called a playmaker yet hardly any of his foward balls are incisive, he gets called a box to box CM yet he hardly ever makes runs forward. Don't get me wrong he's a good player who can probably start at a smaller team, but here we have lots of players with the same qualitites as him, who are frankly better, age or not.

Il Maestro
01 Jul 10, 02:38
I haven't seen much of him (just the matches he's been playing with the "big guys"), but I'm rather optimistic about this kid. I remember he did something nice, which led to a goal, against Parma.

But let's forget about that. This thread is for Obi.

And think about it. How come both ibra and mario breaked the relationship with inter after problems with the fans (ibra insulted them directly and mario did the same later and with the shirt) . I don't think these are coincedences...

27 Aug 10, 17:22
BTW since we were on this topic (although it's not the correct thread) here's the official communication of fc.barca from some minutes ago:

The executive committee of the FC Barcelona board of directors would like to publicly denounce the conduct over the last few days of the agent of our player Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sr Mino Raiola,whose declarations have put into question the honour and moral integrity of our coach Josep Guardiola. These declarations have affected the relationship between the coach and the player and as a result the willingness of the player to fulfil his obligations. As such the declarations are a flagrant breach of the contract which Sr Raiola's company have with the club for representation and management.

Our legal department is therefore considering the possibility of rescinding this contract and the cessation of the annual payment Sr Raiola's company receives from the club as part of this agreement.

Once the department has reached its conclusions and taking into consideration how this matter develops, the club will take any measures it considers necessary.

I haven't seen anyone mention it but Obi's interception of a Bremen player in midfield led to the 4th goal. It was a good read that started the entire thing. In the few times I've seen this kid, he's been fairly impressive. He doesn't seem nervous at all. For a 19 year old that's pretty huge. Well done Obi.

Defensive midfield, our overpiled area :S. And as for Santon he made his passes and it was at a time when inter was just waiting for the game to end. Imo he can't be blaimed. In the end not even Obi did anything more than him because they both had a run in the box and that's it :S

Yep. He brought some urgency, even strength and mostly, LEGS. His movement is totally different compared to for example Zanetti and Cambiasso and to some extend Motta and Stankovic too. I'd like to see players like Obi in our midfield in the future, players who have some strength and also enough legs to compete physically out there.

I think you are not wrong in saying Obiorah has done nothing to show his quality.

Maybe I didnt make my post clear. I think we need to put him on the pitch in an easy game to see how good he is, obviously he wont suddenly burst into life in his first game but with our current situation, if he doesnt even get a sub appearance that would be wrong. I rate him highly but we wont suddenly find out if he's good/bad by keeping him on the bench.

Good to hear. I hope his performances this season although they weren't that impressive can attract some Serie A side to loan him.

There are a LOT more players who didn't succed, than the ones who did. Ther was Bolzoni, and Aquafresca and others. I'm sure out of all "Natalinos, Biraghis, Dell Agnellos" and so on, and so on, we'll be lucky if 1 of those will become something big.

You guys sometimes act, like every our guy is another Messi. I already got enough of the "What they are doing, giving Pele for Quaresma, he is our future playmaker !!!", or "I'd rather get Aquafresca than Milito".

Take it easy guys. It's just 50%. You should rather take this anger and put it where it belongs, namely Destro deal.

CafeCordoba

Yeah maybe it's best for his development to play first team football, or at least more than what he could have done at Inter anyway. But we lose yet another club-trained player here. Well, more Primavera-youngsters to CL list.

But to think a bit further, co-ownerships are probably the best way to develop these kids.

Azzkikr
31 Jan 11, 20:32
Why would you keep Obi next season anyways?

At inter we dont really develop primavera players with the intent of using them in the first team anyways. We develop them with the intent of trading them in + cash deals for better players in Serie A. We have been doing this for a long time and will probably keep doing so. We are not Ajax or Barca who has exceptional youth academies where players are taught to play with the philosophy of the first team from they are kids.

The talent in our youth section is and has been limited, the only exception being Balotelli who could have broken into our first 11, but we all know how that turned out.

I never really considered him a first team player although he's been selected for most of the games. He just needs to prove that he's up to the challenge of being an important player for us. This co-ownership deal will help him develop away from all the pressure to impress in here plus getting more than 10 mins he usually gets. But why didn't we just wait til the end of this season and loaned him out than selling 1/2 of his contract? I mean if he moves to Parma next season and shows some potential it may cost us some cash to get full ownership.

Azzkikr
31 Jan 11, 21:28
We can just add another club trained player next season.

Obi only got a few minutes because we have had some extreme injury crisis. Thats highly unlikely to happen again.

There is also a big difference between showing abit of potential and then having what it takes to make a difference at a young age like Balotelli did to some degree. Obi is clearly not in the same league talentwise. The only reasonable choice is to have him get regular playing time at another club.

CafeCordoba
01 Feb 11, 10:28
Well, this has been talked about here many times, but co-ownership isn't that bad actually. That way we commit the smaller club to develop the player. When they own half of the player, they have stakes in the development process of the player. In loan deal, they don't have stakes, they only have an inexperienced young player and if the player develops, they get nothing. If he doesn't develop, they lose nothing. Genoa has been an exception in this one with Destro, but probably we've had agreed in the summer already that Destro will be part of the Ranocchia deal in the future (now it happened this winter) despite him going only on loan there at first.

yeah, I don't really see the logic in this move. Like Cafe said, co-ownership makes sense when the player is going to a smaller club to get playing time, but when he's sitting on our bench it gets us nothing except for whatever small amount of money Parma paid to co-own him.

Afterwards it was the Super Eagles who dominated the match with debutant Inter’s Joel Obi leading the midfield charge. Soon enough the home crowd began to chant his praise screaming “Obi, Obi, Obi” into the night air.

If that's true I'm happy for him. If he will keep trying, and improving(even on inter trainings) he can still win a place in this team. It's a road of every players with some pottential. Sanchez also didn't played from the start at Udinese. Obviously Udinese is no Inter, but same patter applies, just that it will take probably much longer, untill he can be considered as the proper squad player.

But SOME pottential is there. He played some last year, he played more this year, plus this NT. Who knows, maybe 1, 2 years, and he can grow into some proper squad option.

From Inter.it

The international friendly between Joel Obi's Nigeria and Sierra Leone at the National Stadium in Lagos ended 2-1.

The Nerazzurri player was in the starting line-up as he made his debut with the senior side. After setting up Nigeria's second goal he was substituted to a standing ovation in the 64th minute.

I think he will only improve and develop if we loan him to another Serie A club where he finds more space to play, player doesn't really benefit from training imo.

I think this summer we should let him go to Parma and gain playing time. He won't get enough to grow here. Cristeg can take his spot on the roster and train with the big boys for a year. Then we can go from there.

Assuming we currently have 6 players ahead of him the midfield pecking order, a loan next season could do him a lot of good, barring any injuries.

I have no problem with that. In fact I always preffer our younger guys to play at lesser serieA teams, than to just train with first team.

this is a reason why the FIGC should create a reserves division between the primavera and serie a/b

This! They need a reserves league to keep them reserve players in good shape during the season and allow scouts to see them in action. They got this in England and Spain but sadly not in Italy!

he will go to parma on co-ownership

It's a bit sad for me but, it's good for him and us since it's co-ownership.. he can develop into a great player there, and can return to us in 2 years or more and he already ready for the first team.. I just hope Parma will be back to their good form next season, they're shit now btw..

He's been more impressive in his performances than Coutinho and Mariga(Well his 5 mins at the end of a couple of games) so I hope we don't end up selling him.

I do hate how Kharja plays instead of him. Even if it is only for a few minutes.

Obi needs constant playing time in order to improve and make himself a name.
I agree with letting him go on a co-ownership deal, it's a win-win situation.

Are Obi, Santon, Viviano and Destro have the same agent? I really didnt understand what did google translate about that.. But I understood that an agent says Santon and Obi probably will remain in Inter next season, while Viviano and Destro will not..

Do Inter give youth a chance?

Leonardo is no Wenger that's for sure. Players like Coutinho, Santon, Mariga and Obi will offer more at times than Pandev, Kharja and even Stankovic who seems past it tbh.

santon mariga and coutinho are COMPLETELY different players from pandev stankovic and kharja, what they offer on the pitch is practically incomparable

and ps. mariga gets plenty of time whenever he isn't injured (which is a LOT), coutinho loses more balls than pandev and the last game he was good at was against sampdoria in october, obi has played a total of about 40 official minutes for inter so unless you know him personally he, like all other youngsters, is shit until proven otherwise, and santon has been given more chances than fans would have liked, last season he had 2 surgeries and starting him this season was basically like starting 1-0 down

I agree with you 100% but I would also like to see some of the players mentioned be bought on when the game is already decided. If we're winning 3-0 by half time, it wouldn't hurt to substitute an injury prone Sneijder/Motta/Deki for an Obi/Mariga/Cou.

I honestly believe that this guy is better than Kharja in pretty much everything. Only thing Kharja has over him is experience...but fuck experience tbh. Dude started a Milan derby, fuck y'all.

Seriously tho, he is stronger than Kharja, he's MUCH faster than Kharja, he can dribble better than Kharja (remember that run against Cesena? 8055), he can actually win a ball, he covers more space, HE'S VERSATILE and last but not least, he's younger. Why waste minutes on that fucker Kharja, who we all know isn't going to get any better, than use Obi, who can be a future star. I really believe that.

Those 15 minutes he played againts Roma,he was great,really. He has a very nice style of playing. He stopped 2 or 3 Roma attacks and created some fast counter-attacks with Sneijder. I don't really know why Leo doesn't give him any chances,Obi could be a real help.
