    There is No doubt abt his Talent-he's very xciting... BUT u don't pick Trialist ahead of establishers like Quincy whose Talent is immeasurable. The BS team is not an Xhibition stage to Market playerz 4 self gains, but is a team dat assembles its best fighters (talents) to Defend n bring Honour to its Nation thru a sports called Football. Quincy opted to play for Gh out of Luv n not out of Anything! If we want to see Memphis Depay, Edwin Gyasi , Karim Bellarabi n etc play for this Nation, den we must stop the injustice against Quincy. I heard frm a very reliable source dat Coach AA always Opposed decisions of calling-up Abeyie. It is alleged dat he was behind d Axing of Quincy in the recent Gabon Afcon squad so dat he cld pave way 4 inkoom to play at the no. 7 position. He always wanted him out since his days as an Assistant to his Serbian Bossess. We understand he is using his links wit the Media to cover up any doubts circling his Job. That is why there is always a Campaign of 'Support' frm the media even wen things goes is the reason they refuse to critisize him wen d need be! I just keep wondering the direction our futball is heading towards. Corrupt and Cycophantic personnels r dominating our futball- they r the passion killers... The Black Taliban's of Gh soccer
