    With Roberto Martinez Atsu is going to be one of the deadliest players in the premier league.He is a players manager.I hope its not one of the those headlines typical of GSN.

    Papa Addo, I agree with your optimism. For Oviedo, I meant his link up play with OSMAN on the wing is great, not himself as a winger. We wish Atsu all the best.

    Everton??? On the wings they have.. Pienaar who is amazing with Baines.. Osman, Oviedo, Mirallas, McGeady who can play there. Oviedo is also Baines’s backup but was used a lot on the wing before his injury.. Kone can also play there, though I don’t think he will. Lets pray and hope Atsu gets enough game time to develop better.

    @Deladem... Everton has FA cup.. Europa league.. premier league carling cup etc... Atsu will get more than enough playing time.. he is good enough to compete against osman, Oviedo is a left back, mirallas doesnt last 90minutes, McGeady is old and Martinez and Atus attitude will bring them together.. they are both relatively calm in nature

    In fact, Atsu is the most handsome player among the black stars players, followed by Prince Kevin and Dede Ayew.

    great news for my fellow ghanaian star atsu....wishing him all the best in the up-coming season but one advise to him is that on the field of play managers always look out for players who are very smart,wise & intelligent.
