    This the best report on Ghanaian players abroad in months and it is very encouraging that our boys are starting to show their best form as we go into the heart of the european football season. I'm particularly encouraged that Dominic Adiyah is starting to show the potential he promised as a teenager. Adiyah is an example of what regular first team football in a team where the management believe in you can do for a player's confidence. Long may it continue.

    Wat exposure does Adiyiah need again? We've given him de chance 2 play the highest U-20 competitions 4rm WAFU, CAF to FIFA U-20, CAN n even de FIFA world cup. Wat xposure again re u talkn abt? The black stare is not de property of a single individual n 4 dat mata a marketing platform. We're going 2 a CAN were nothing but taking the trophy is a failure, not 2 market players. We ve 2 set our priorities ryt n stop the blame game. We need established players not a player who has scored 4 goal 4 de past 4 yrs. I'd rather we sent a Laryea K to play on de wings wer Adiyiah might play even in de worst of conditions. I'm an Adiyiah fan but selection must not be based on sentiments. No excuse wud be taken 4 any failure. We need de trophy PERIOD!!!
