    Guys, you can’t give that Mumbi guy any attention. Don’t even insult him. He loves the attention, the comments, the insults etc. The only antidote to a person like him is to totally ignore him as if nobody has read his post, as if he doesn’t exist or hasn’t written nothing. The reason why people post on this site is for dialogue so if you are totally ignored, it’s like you haven’t written nothing. To Asamoah Gyan regarding his snub for the top award in the Arabian league, this is my piece of advice: You need to quit this mediocre league. This is the Arab for you. I know them really well. They have a total disregard for the African, especially those from the continent. If you are black playing for say Brazil, America, France , England or even Ecuador, anywhere, it’s okay but not the continent. (Their policy is like that of Man. U under Sir Alex Ferguson). The Arabs can’t stand an African from the continent being their MVP for two consecutive years. So this is what you can do. At the 2014 WC, try to play your heart out, and be a hit. Then after the WC you can leave. You can get a good contract in one of the top leagues in the world say England, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal or even Turkey (you know, they are Muslims but not Arabs), and I know you can make it. The money might be smaller but you can make a name for yourself, and become a legend like say Abedi, Drogba or Eto’o. Overthere, you can do everything but they will not recognize you. A word to the wise….., Thanks

    Baffour Gyan in his prime was really good but I have no idea why his football career has turned out this way in the last say, 10 years or so.
