Looks like his name is , "Nwankwo Obiorah".

Obiorah can play as defender or defensive Midfield

OK maybe Obiorah or Obiora, Inter says Obiora.
But I am sure that his first name is Nwankwo.

Can he play as a centerback? That would be great ;)

His first name seems Nwankwo, and seems pretty interesting, especially with so many goals for a defender.

Time to move this thread up to the big boys section. He played well today, he is a pure DM. Sits well in front of the defense and passes well. Also very smart, he played the ball quickly and sprayed it around. He is really our only true "destroyer" at this moment. Props to our scouting department for finding this kid in Real Murcia of all places.

If he keeps playing like this and doesnt make it to the starting lineup in a few years, I will be very surprised. He is a younger version of Mariga... There is pace, strength, he will obviously become better and with the likes of Cuchu around him, the only way is up. We should keep an eye on his growth, if it means he goes on loan to play more Serie A, then I'm game for it.

Has he completed teh 3 years at Inter to become Home Grown?

He can't make it. The rule goes:

A "club-trained player" is a player who, between the age of 15 (or the start of
the season during which he turns 15) and 21 (or the end of the season during
which he turns 21), and irrespective of his nationality and age, has been
registered with his current club for a period, continuous or not, of three entire
seasons (i.e. a period starting with the first official match of the relevant
national championship and ending with the last official match of that relevant
national championship) or of 36 months.

Though, I don't know how they calculate these cases when the player is signed to the club in winter market. Since if that is taken into account, then Obiora is 20 in the winter of 2012 and his last "season" starts at that point, then he will turn 21 during that "season" and he will qualify as club-trained.

junior55
11 Aug 10, 10:59
@cafe
Well i don't know if i'm wrong or you but it's smth irelevant of the period of his signing because his birthday is 12.07.1991 so the situation would be like this...
season 2010-2011 age 19
season 2011-2012 age 20
season 2012-2013 age 21
(because in 12 July 2012 the season 2011-2012 is over and he has finished it as 20 and so he begins the new season as 21)

CafeCordoba
11 Aug 10, 12:35
Yeah, that's my point. How they calculate when the season begins and ends. Since their definition of that period in which the player must be registered to a club, determines that it starts in the first official match of the domestic championship and ends in the last official match of the domestic championship. There is no Serie A matches going on in 12 July 2012. So technically he is 21 before his last season starts.

It is very simple...He will be 19 at the start of his first season with Inter and will be 21 at the end of his third season with Inter irregardless of the fact that he was signed in the winter. The 2012-13 season ends in May and he will still be 21 years old, so the fact that he turns 22 after that, should not effect it because it says the season ends with the last official match...

It has to be full seasons, so the 6 months he has been here does not count...

14 Aug 10, 07:07
I think rafa is getting convinced that he doesn't need mascherano anymore. I'm not saying that obiora is better than mascherano of course but signing him would mean to burn the talent and growth of obiora and mariga.
Mascherano is only 26 and this means that he will play for inter for at least 4-5 years as a starter in the DM position so the duo mariga-obiora should wait for 5 years to begin having first team experience....

Did balo come through the inter academy or lummezane?? Where is your cutoff age as far as coming up through the academy??

blackmore
14 Aug 10, 09:21
i dont consider balo an academy player bro. i mean real academy youth players that started their careers with us and then worked their way up the ranks. these would be the real academy players for me.

i would warrant the fact though that nowadays it would be hard to get players like that, as the talent is spread equally around the world and the scouting game is such a big and important one. not every one that comes through primavera is gonna turn out to be a squad player for the senior team.

one example is balo and another santon, whom if i remember correctly joined us in 2005 from ravenna. biraghi on the other hand i would consider one that came through the ranks, as he joined us when he was only 11.(i think from atalanta).

coming up through the academy itself, and joining the primavera from another team are two seperate entities(for me anyway).

CafeCordoba
14 Aug 10, 12:51
Yeah. But what is the cutoff age as Stefan asked? Is it 15, 14, 13, 12... ? My opinion is that we can the player as "ours" if he's been here from the age of 15. From that age, it's still very very long route to play in senior level even if you are very talented and super prospect. So to me Balo is not originally our player, but for example Santon is (he joined when he was 14 or 15?), Crisetig too. Destro is a true Inter youngster.

But players joining directly to our Primavera squad can't be rated as Inter products, like Krhin, Belec, Obiora, Faraoni, Benedetti. Do you know what is the history of Dell'Agnello?

I would say that 15's the limit. Therefore, Balo, Crisetig and Santon are academy products, but Alibec/Stevanovic/Benedetti who joined at 17/18 aren't.

blackmore
14 Aug 10, 14:07
yeah cafe i would say around 14-15 would be the max age. its important that most of their footballing skills are nurtured and cultivated by the club at a young age. no use having some 19 year old superstar come in to the team, play for a year, and then say that he's "from the academy"...

obiora is two years older than crisetig and age makes a very big difference when you're under 20, maybe crisetig will be better than obiora in two years but right now obiora is much better

as for why he is with the first team, it's because we have 5 players for two positions but one of them is muntari and the two others are injury prone motta and granddad stankovic, winning teams need depth and if mascherano doesn't come we still need a reliable back up for the back ups

How many DM's do we have that are club-trained?? I just explained what the strategy may be above, but you seem to have ignored it. The more club trained players the better, so why not hang on to him for two years and let him gain that status. If you have watched him at all during the pre-season, you should have seen that the kid is talented and definitely good enough to be a strong back-up within the next two seasons. I believe that he will be able to get some playing time in games which we have a comfortable lead or the early stages of the Coppa Italia. If he continues to grow, he can fill Cambiasso's shoes when he decides to hang them up...

CafeCordoba
17 Aug 10, 13:19
natointerista wants Crisetig to the first team before Obiora. That has nothing to do with club-trained status, since Obiora will get that even if he plays in Primavera for the whole time he needs.

But yeah, it is more likely Obiora will stay in the first team and Crisetig won't. The Italian is two years younger and he has absolutely no hurry to take the step to the senior level. Obiora has, at least more that Crisetig, so he could play Krhin-like role next season. Though I'd like him to have more chances than what Krhin got and probably he will if Benitez continues to use his rotation.

Ya but why put a 17 year old kid in the first team and leave the 19 year old on the primavera? Unless there was a huge difference in quality, it makes no sense. I am sure Crisetig is solid, but Nwankwo must be just as good or better or else Rafa would have brought up Crisetig instead...

But than if we wanted for the status why not keep Khrin lol?

cmon vito u just answered your own question...of course the boys better :)


don't get me wrong i have no intention of quarreling, but why the hell would inter keep him anyway? I mean Crisetig is way ahead of this guy in my opinion, and seeing we already have quite a number of DMs this guy is going to be used way worse than a bench warmer.

you say hes way ahead of him, pls enlighten me on when you have seen criseyg play, cause im curious to know when he's out performed this boy, and how he is better then him...??

He came in January 2007...So his first season began in August/September 2007, which is the 2007-08 season, then he was here 2008-09 and he was here last season which was 2009-10, so 3 full seasons. I do not think we would have loaned him out if he did not gain his home grown status yet...

He made a couple of mistakes IMO, but he can actually pass, is confident enough not to always play safe passes.

He like Mariga has all the attributes needed to be a good DM, the only difference I see is the speed at which both play.

Don't be so harsh...the guy provided us with some comical relief in what was an otherwise pretty shitty night. Him falling over is one of the funniest things I've seen.

But anyway...the usual shit. If you're a youngster making your debut....all you need to do is complete 2 or 3 successful passes in the last 10 minutes of a game and an entire forum will be on your dick hoping you're the next Redondo.

Very true. Nwankwo to me seems to think much quicker then Mariga. Him being in our primavera and coming to Italy early means by the time he's Mariga's age he should be a better player. He will end up being more polished. May need a loan/co own very soon to find some playing time.

I still believe in him, you guys are judging him on 2 performances, one against Tottenham at WHL and this one agaisnt Chievo both times came on when the team was behind, losing. Offcourse he was atrocious today, but still too soon to lose hope in a teenager.

CafeCordoba
21 Nov 10, 19:40
It's ridiculous to demand good performances from 19-year-old central midfielder. I mean he came in to replace who? You got it right, Cambiasso, the director of our game (tempo, attacking side, release of pressure). It's just totally unfair to expect him to perform at this situation Inter is having. Enormous pressure on the whole side and you have to play the director role or something close to it in the heart of your team (in the central of midfield). And as far as I've understood, Obiora is DM, not some passer who dictates the play. Even Cambiasso sucks in that in Rafa's system, how we can expect Obiora to perform in that role?

He'll go on loan to Padova next year, their new manager is Fulvio Pea who coached our Primavera (with Obiora) before Strama so I guess he'll get minutes, off course after he was a regular starter at Gubbio from January.

.h.
13 Aug 12, 09:59
contract was extended in mid june till 2015.

I expect another 1 or 2 seasons out on loan before he gets a real shot in at breaking through at Inter. Hopefully next year he'll get to loan to Serie A... But we've got quite a few good young players who are regular A/B players now who are 'on the verge' for us...

Crisetig looks set to be a regular B player this year - iirc he captained Spezia in a friendly a few days after moving - Romano should be a regular at a Serie B club this season. Bianchetti maybe not a regular... Biraghi hopefully can get his development back on track... Then there is Stevanovic, Benedetti, Bardi, Obiora who are all playing week in week out... Caldirola... I expect Alborno to be a regular at Novara, Pecorini is a bit harder to be sure of... Faraoni of course at Udinese should be a regular on the bench

I remember vividly after those 4-5 matches he disappeared. He didnt have a single flop game, he was pretty avarage, same as Benassi, but he aint italian, so nobody masturbated on him. He was just a normal ass normal guy, i used to like him more than Obi back in the days.

He was way worse than Benassi. And way below average games where he played.

Can't remember him being good or bad. Did he ever played more than a half time?

But I can remember the Tottenham- or the Bremen-game. And when he made some average performances in this games he was much better than most of our other players.

Yeah. I remember he was very good in the pre-season, but then when the season kicked in he was pretty bad.

He wasn't BAD until the Tottenham game. Where he looked woefully out of his depth and just overall poor. Before that he looked average, never special though. We'll never see him in these colors again.

Nigeria won the African Cup of Nations 2013. Nwankwo played in one group game (against Sambia).
