    What did I said negative about afful? When people were advocating for afful to be replaced by schlupp, I was the only one who was defending him here and I said it repeatedly over that, afful is a modern day full back and that we don't even have a problematic full back but rather a problematic central back! I said that, the likes of afful and inkoom are modern day full backs who loves to iniates attack but lack of proper covering from our back two invariably exposes them! I said that schlupp ll be exposed when defending and I was proved right in the Holland game though he is such a great talent too! A lot of fair minded forumites ll bear me out here that I did raised these points several times over here! I have always defended afful and inkoom but has been a harsh critic of our central defenders and they proved me right with their shambolic and pathetic defending in Brazil! Afful has been one player that always impresses me whether attacking or defending and he was even more powerful with his defending in Brazil just as he was classic with his attacks! Am not seeking any vain glory neither am l seeking for any attention but I want people to know constructive criticism is different from noise! I have never been impressed with john boye and Jonathan mensah as they are very average and I was very vocal about them prior to the WC and they show us that they are indeed not good enough! I know forumites who are fair minded ll bear me out that I said all these things about our full backs prior to the WC! I said a lot of things before the WC and am came to pass! Do forumites remember me saying that we have never beaten a western European nation before? Drew with Germany and lost to Portugal! How about we conceding all our WC goals thru set pieces? Exact replica was repeated in Brazil! I said Germany always reserved their best for tournament and that they know how to play in tournament and it seems am a prophet! I said before the WC that we can do nothing in Brazil and that our best BET with this squad is to win the morocco AFCON and I still stand by this that, AA LL WIN US THE NEXT AFCON IN MOROCCO! MARK THIS TOO!.. I KNOW WHAT AM SAYING! I criticize a lot but my criticisms are constructive!

    The France league is more physical just as the Italian league! The bundesliga is more technical just as the LA liga! The epl is more direct which relies on speed! They don't care about techniques but rather speed and hence it ll suits afful like something! With his performance against unique and powerful team such as the die mannschaft or the German machine, afful is destiny to succeed in the EPL! Afful is among the few ghanaians and west Africans who has succeeded in the Maghreb region of north Africa and he can succeed anywhere in the world and I know what am saying! He is definitely one of the most talented Ghanaian players of this era but unfortunately he is also one of the most underrated and it hurts me a lot! By is all good as this WC has exposed his incredible talent to the WC and the sky ll be the limit! Today, I ll state categorically and empirically that afful ll become one of the most IMPORTANT PLAYERS to the bs in future and I can also see him wearing the CAPTAINS ARM BAND IN THE NEAR FUTURE! MARK IT TOO!

    Before the start of the WC, I said that afful is a modern day full back and that European clubs uses the full backs mainly for attacks or they uses them to intiate attacks whiles the central backs covers their back for them but some forumites disagreed with me and said the opposite is the case and I have been VINDICATED AGAIN! After the Germany match, I went to several European clubs to read their assessement of the game esp those in the EPL and the bundesliga and most of them gave high rare reviews to Harrison afful and most of their fans esp those in the EPL were clamouring for Harrison to be sign by their clubs! I said before the wc,there has never been a full back who can iniates attack and then recover at full strength to regain possession and forumites took me on! I said that we don't have any problem with our full backs but we have problems with our central backs and this WC has vindicated me by most of the things I said here! We didn't have problems with our full backs except for opare poor crosses in the USA game, our full backs were on spot and we scored most of our goals from their assists! We equalized in the Germany match from afful assists and we again eqyalised in the Portugal match from asamoah cross! So it means, what I said was the right thing! Our central defenders were the problem not our so called problematic full backs! The strong performance by afful and asa has vindicated me and it shows my knowledge about the modern game! Those who knows don't talk and those who talk don't know!

    This guy is good and I said it before the WC that he is a modern day full back and this is what the European clubs are looking for! He had a rare review at the WC and he ll make the FIFA WC team after Sunday! Mark it! Kudos to u Harrison and I believed in u the first time I set my eyes on u playing in BABA YARA stadium! Awesome talent! I want u to go england because your play ll fits the premiership very well and most of the EPL clubs were praising u a lot after the Germany match! England should be your destination!

    I 2nd U Bossu Selfmade. He's the undisputed right fullback for the Blackstars. Just don't understand why our people can't see that.

    hey but guess what our stupid coach thinks daniel opare was better than him.apart from kwadwo asamoah,he was our best defender in brasil.

    Afful's is reward for humility and hard work. The English game is too physical and less technical. I recommend Germany or France.
