    U don't need to be a certified coach b4 u knw the qualities of QUINCY. Creativity , Power & Aggresivity are the main things lacking in the BS... And here is a player who together with Andre, Jordan n Atsu cld form a quartet of soccer Musqueteers... similar to the record breaking quartet of Ronaldo, Benzema , ozil and Di Maria. But wat happens? We ignore the general criteria used for selecting players just to create room for some bunch Defensive midfielders. Quincy has been one of the Few GH players who has been very consistent at club level. He is in Gr8 form and featured almost every week for panathinaikos. He is the reason panathi won the league- the more reason why Walter Mazzari wanted him at NAPOLI to replace EZEKIEL LAVESI. Wat has he done to us to deserve dis treatment. Must he be inactive like the other Gh players b4 he wld b called? It hurts me wen i see AA xperiment the right wing wit shambos like Inkoom whiles we've got Quincy. The Management & Technical commitee sld come again wit the criteria for Selection. ****!

    He scored six goals and eighteen assists in one season. What a player !!! If the fans starts to call the coach out, he will be called in no time. Combine Quincy with Atsu, Dede and Kwadwo Asamoah, with Gyan as a lone striker, and tell me which defenders can stop these quick intelligent guys?

    While other countries cherish their offensive & pacy attackers like CR7,Ribery,Walcott,Gervinho & Robben,our Black Star coach have neglected Quincy who has all those qualities for defensive midfielders.why wont we lose to Zambia twice in a row

    Our Black stars team lack the needed balance.Dede & Atsu are the only offensive midfielders while the rest of the midfielders are defensive.that is why we lack the necessary creativity to score goals and rely solely on Gyan.

    I understand your disgust D LIGHT. It makes no sense why our technical handlers insist on using Inkoom at a place where he is at most 20 percent effective when we have a skillful, pacy, dribbling winger who crosses the ball very well too
