Five minutes later, he again header in Ahmed Al Shamisi’s free-kick.

    d fact that gyan scored 2 goals for his club doesnt necessarily mean that hes 100% fit, and logically this can be attributed to a statement known as ‘contingent statement’ and it can only be proven by enough evidence. come again GSN

    I just watched Baba Abdul Rhaman’s Greuther Furth play against joint top league leaders Union Berlin. The game ended 2:4 in favor of Greuther Furth and the fact is Kissi Boateng is no where near Rhaman’s intelligence in the game of soccer. His tackles, passes(attacking), dribblings, surging forward, decision making, what else? I even forget he played in the BL last season. The kid is superb and not just one for the future but is needed right now to solve the left back. He has played in big matches and even won a man of the match award against Bayern Munchen last season and still being chased by Schalke 04. Open your eyes AA because we do have the talents so use them at their rightful positions.

  3. Nana B says:

    MassaGodbless, David Addy is better than both of then so shut up

    • spellBOUND says:

      The point that AA is not following the statements he made when he became coach. he said he will invite players who get rugular playing time, yet we still see invitations of inkoom and co. dauda does not deserve a callup for egypt if he does not get playing time. he was very rusty in the zambia game. i agree that david addy is better and more experienced. you’ve proven Godbless’s point in regards to player invites.

      you could make your point without aggression. your insult was unnecessary. good day.

  4. spellBOUND says:

    Oh rother dont waste your breath on this issue. AA invites his relatives kisi, asante, adomah, and inkoom over players like baba rhaman who are better and play in more competitive leagues.

  5. PITO says:

    A.A has something against David Addy. Mansotweni coach!

  6. Dr Who says:

    David Addy lacks muscles to play at the highest level that was why all those Serbian coaches of the BS ignored him…..Leave AA alone

  7. Boakye yiadom also played 90mins for his team Elche ( la liga) today.. We need him to beef de squad for de Egypt clash

  8. John Sisko says:

    Asamoah Djan be careful we need you for the play off. Please guard against injusries; indeed you know where you are playing already.

    Hi my brother Godbless u are damnright about baba rahman.i hav kept quiet for a long time.
    We ghanaians can take the mediocre under-20 tourney in turkey to judge him.
    Baba rahman almost went to schalke but the greuther fürth boss helmuth hack,owner of a big tea company denied him the move.
    Even florentina were keeping close tabs on him.
    The under 20 team at turkey was one of the worst teams ghana has presented in a youth tournament but becuz of sheer luck they went far.
    That rahman guy is earning s lot of praise here in germany.guys pls believe rahman is damn good but AA lacks the vision to use players at their right positions.
    With all due respect to egypt,there is no need of fearing them.
    Guys pls go to youtube and access all their qualifiers against Mozambique,Zimbabwe and Guinea u guys will see how the egyptians scored cheap goals as well as considered cheap goals.
    Pls fellow forumites do yourselves this favour n observe them on youtube.
    Greetings to all the real old forumites here who started from day one with this website.

  10. @ Dr Who: David Addy played with inkoom,adiyiah,dede,opare,badu,jonathan mensah in 2009 and won both african and the world cup. all these guys are the BS playing and he hasn’t got the muscle to be in the team his colleaques are playing?please come again!

  11. Troublenoman says:

    @Godbless how much did baba Rahman pay u…?

    • Godbless says:

      He paid me with his footballing skills. Go ask the Germans how much he paid them with all those hype. A player who started his professional career just two seasons ago with Kotoko but played as if he started playing long time ago and was able to seduce every other team in the BL even including Napoli and Arsenal. Go and read great stories about him. If you are good, you are good period.

  12. Dr Who says:

    ‘many are called but few are chosen’…….did Plavi not preferred Masawudu Alhassan to David Addy? Hé even chose Lee Addy ahead of David.Is David Addy the only former U20 player not playing actively for the Stars?….I understand our passion as a Ghanaian willing and eager to see a solid BS but dont forget you’re not more a Ghanaian than AA.He also want the same success even more than me and you….Its amazing how the likes of Abayie and Kumodzi are ignored for other players that mé and you think they dont make the cut.that is the reason why we will fire our coach when hé fails to qualify us to Brazil.Ghana has enough players to choose that can easily dispose off this Egyptians.If a chef fails to prepare a delicious meal after being given adundant ingredients for food then the chef is qualified to be fired!!!!!!!!!

    Are these the stars players ghana has to offer? This 50 yrs old guy who plays in some unrecognized league. Ghana is bellow average.

  15. Kaylee says:

    Bags brace in a league that is worse than ghana league? Mtchwww

  16. African Consciousness says:

    Gyan is good in the air so who is going to feed him the crosses to convert? Wakaso is too busy trying to score his own goals and so is Dede. Coach Appiah needs to get someone like Essien, Atsu or Mutari in there to feed him. He is hungry as heck!

  17. DIDI RAHMAN says:

    GO TO EUROPE/SERIA A,BUNDESLIGA,LA LIGA,EPL,FRENCH LIGUE 1 AND PLAY BETTER FOOTBALL AND STOP TELLING US THAT YOU SCORED 2 OR 3 GOALS FOR AL AIN .FOR ME DIVISION 1 IN GHANA HERE WILL SCORE THAT TEAM.
    GHANA DONT HAVE A BETTER STRIKER NOW IF WE DONT INVITE JORDAN
