    I side with u man. This guy who plays in one of the lowest leagues in Africa seems to get a lot of attention from this medium. why? don't we have Ghanaians who are plying their trades in more credible leagues who need some form of attention? Eg. where is Ransford Osei? how is he performing? how about Sam Yeboah? how about Eric Bekoe's injury situation? How far with Ahmed Toure's naturalisation? Jerry Akaminko? How are Osei Banahene, Obed Owusu, Kabiru Moro, Alex Asamoah, Escoba (Ofosu Appiah) faring with their new clubs? and all other Ghanaian players who have left our shores. These players can also be covered so we know whats happening to them. If GSN decides to concentrate on the Tanzanian league, how about Nafiu Iddrisu and his former teammate who were transferred by Alhaji Grunsah to Tanzania recently? Why always this guy?
