    Yuh he is, plain & simple! We all know that our manager is not good enough to handle the B/S. We only qualified for the WC cuz of the qualify of players we have not because of his coaching credentials.

    Very embarrassing statement. Very far from complimentary. "James Akwasi Appiah improved his previous ranking of 43rd to an incredible 42nd position with 5991 points." Were you expecting worse for a coach who really believes he can win the World Cup. All our opposing coaches in our group are in the top 10. Isn't that incredible? Lets always aim at being at the top. Look at the Uruguayan coach. What makes him better than Akwasi Appiah. Clearly, one needs to start winning tournaments and we should believe that we can or stop pretending.

    Of course Nigeria coach from the world shortlisting is 100% better that AA, and in Africa the No.1 for now. However, i know that AA is a good coach and would get to the top soon.
