    First reason is that we qualified dubiously after intimidating visiting teams by subjecting them to harsh treatment and making them to train in the car park then switching of lights. Now we can't do that at the WC. This is a big lesson, as we also have been disgraced and lose a lot of money too.

    HERE ARE THE PLAYERS THOUGHT PROCESS WITH A.A IN CHARGE: 1) Kwadwo Asamoah: (thinking) why am I playing Left Back. The whole nation does’nt have a LB? David Addy, Baba Rahman, jeffrey schlup, harrison Afful, Opare. Why or why? Kwasi Appiah says: oh just shutup and obey me. KPB: (thinking) why am i on this bench this is our must win game. I’m I that bad? i am the most highly rated player on this team. or i’m i deceiving myself. They even begged me to come play for them. oh man, i am itching to play. Kwasi Appiah: oh just shutup and sit ur ass on that bench. highly rated my foot. obey me! Essien: (Thinking) ah why i’m i on the bench. I still got quality in me yet. With my seniority and experience I can change this game. or i’m i really that expired? Akwasi Appiah: You are too known essien. Just shut up and sit on the bench boy.Obey me. Kwarasey: (thinking)I am the best goalkeeper in norway. Why i’m i on the bench. Was those two goals really my fault? ei. I’m not even sure anymore. damn i must suck. Someone tell me I dont suck. oh my confidence. i am not comfy anymore. Akwasi Appiah: you don’t suck. But I need someone more rugged. unlike fatau, You dont jump around like a goat on heat in the post. Your goalkeeping style is too relaxed for my liking. sit your ass down! Obey me. Andre Ayew: Damn I am sweating on the pitch too much. Why is all my best colleagues on the bench. some of These guys I am with on the pitch are still learning. They are too wasteful! je me discouragion. Akwasi Appiah: You are lucky to be starting. If you don’t shutup you will join them on the bench bia. huh. i am not joking! hmm. Ok. substitution. Come sit your ass down. Wakaso dress up and go in. Nonsense! next time obey me. you people want the testicles of the team to be STOMPED on three times before you take action but by the time there will be no Black Stars. Hoe many of us did not complain about taking Adomah, solomon asante and kissi boateng to afcon. How many of us did not complain about not calling in formidable defenders to world cup after Akaminko was injured. Akwasi Appiah is not a coach. He is a mallam. He plays inferiority complex tactics. He himself is confused and right now the players in camp hate each other because of Akwasi Appiah stupidly twisting their mind all the time which has zero benefits. If he odesnt resign sooner or later Ghana b3 fono no. SACK HIMMMMMM!!!!!!!

    i honestly think Muntari is the only true patriot he tried to stop corruption and the powers that be tried to put him in his place. We can see through the whole saga.The government should set up an independent committee to investigate all the expenditure incurred by GFA on the trip... trust me if the committee does a diligent work heads will roll.Now the gfa has managed to concoct lies to tell the gullible. But time will expose all these corrupt people they should get real job and work their ass off to make money but refrain from sinking their blood stained hands into the Ghanaian tax payers coffers.

    Dr.A.A my question to you is that, if you are the man in-charge why should you aloud some players to dictate to you which player to play who not to play?. Mr. GFA president my question to you is that, is it true that you took along with your wife and two kids to Brazil and if it is true who pay for their air fare and hotel bills?

    They are coming to practice "the kid is always wrong syndrome" they have taking a lot of time to concort their lies and now they are ready to spew them to the poor masses just to keep their positions and continue to loot. I wish people could go that hotel and shine all of them. I wish Ghana is like Senegal... Foolish gfa

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i think saani daarah has not also helped our course, he always come out to defend d undefendable. he must also b fired. period. for AA, i dont think he is on top of his job bcus he lost control of his dressing room and also his temprament in some large extent (calm nd quiet) also didnt help him. d players saw him to b very soft and so the needed respect wasnt there. for muntari, i think his action of slapping parker should nd must be condemned but my biggest problem is what really led into that reaction?. and i also think i side with him about why too many mgt c'mmtee at BS camp, for what??? Nyantekyi is a good manager bt i think he should bring on board pple who will always tell him the truth, and fire those who always sing praises at him. for the entire playing body, i think we have over pampered them for long, and its abt tym we draft and document how much d nation can pay as bonuses to them, and all must abide by it. and then also ghana is gifted with talented players all over d world, and so who eva takes over from AA must cast his net wide nd b professional abt our player selection. for me players lyk assifua, seidu salifu nd even baba rahman shld have been part of this team nd even mahatma. d inclusion of adoma was a complete waste. how can u play kwadwo asamoah at left fuul back whiles u didnt have that intention from d onset? AA is total clueless. God bless GH

    Akwasi Appiah is so dummy and should be removed immediately.the most annoying thing for me is ;playing Kwadwo Asamoah at left back position;whilst we all know that ;Asamoah functioned very well ,when he is moved upfront for black stars.this egg head AA still dont get it.Always experimenting.please resign;otherwise we the fans gonna force you out.period
