    Man,why do Ghanaian care much about personal appearances than the development of the country.People wear ties and suits and so what?They are sports men ,man!Let them demonstrate to the media and Ghanaians that they are not called in to eat,dress and sleep but for a specific mission.Never write this to patronize them ok? Look,l am teaching in china in a university and l bet you students wear the same as l wear ,eat the same as l eat so am l not a teacher and they being students?My cash comes to me and the knowledge they receive.Look at the development here ,My God,Unless Dr.Nkrumah but stake holders here are no different from the ordinary citizens of this country in terms of dressing,housing,feeding and so fort ….Pls fellow countrymen,Its time we leave some unnecessary comments against leaders,or any selected group meant to represent the country in any form.Lets stop those suits and ties and dress casually but seek vigilant work ethics that will be vibrant to pursue the great dream Dr Nkrumah left behind to be accomplished.Look at a team like Zambia beating us now and you are there talking about how they dressed? Are they not footballers? Should the police or the military be in suits when they visit the president during a meeting with state officials ?My bro,lets think big because we need real development and not to fight for those suits that cannot even be made in Ghana.

        WHY DO WE ORGANIZE EVERYTHING IN GH OUTDOORS? EVERYTHING IN GH IS ORGANIZED OUTDOORS, WHY?

    President Mahama has a nice ring to it! This man has the disposition to be a very good President. Ghanaians must wake up to the threat being posed by Akuffo Addo so Ghana does not end up becoming like any other African country mired by violence and thorn apart by tribalism. The people have spoken and no matter how thin the margin of victory Akuffo Addo needs to concede defeat and support a peaceful transition of government.

    Ghanaians love their soccer but without a peaceful country there will be no soccer. It mandatory for every peace loving Ghanaian to demand Akuffo Addo to stop his attempt to rip the country apart.

    The NPP candidates who won their seats should not support Akuffo Addo in this quest to become President at all costs. He does not have the calm disposition to be President and Ghanaians are educated and sophisticated enough to see this. If he was a real patriot he would not be pursuing this course of action. Long live Ghana.

    • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

      COCONUT, ABOA CASSAVA!
      AKUFFO ADDO WILL NOT BE A PATRIOT IF HE TOLD HIS PARTY SUPPORTERS TO TAKE UP ARMS AFTER THE EC BLINDLY PUSHED ASIDE ALL THE BROUHAHA AND DECLARED NDC WINNER, OK. OR INSTRUCT HIS NPP PARTY SUPPORTERS TO TAKE UP ARMS N BOMB PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS IF THE INAUGURATION PROCEEDS BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT HAS MADE THEIR DECISION. DO U HEAR NANA ADDO MAKING SUCH COMMENTS? IDIOT! STOP ACTING AS PROPAGANDA SECRETARY FOR NDC N WRITE ABOUT THE STORY. FOOLISH IDIOT. WO MAAME TW3 HAS A NICE RING TO IT. DOES THAT MEAN UR MODA DESERVES TO BE PRESIDENT OF GH? MAHAMA STOLE THE ELECTION 1 TOUCH. THATS THE PLAIN TRUTH

    correction: “at all cost”.

    Folks, this Seth guy’s immersed deeply in European ideology and mentality and I don’t think he’ll ever come out of it.He should rather be talking about the players wearing Batakaris,FUGUS,Agwadas,Kentes,Joromis etc.and not suits.Man let’s us move forward with African traditions of which we know how to do it best.Go for the cup boys and God bless Ghana.

    • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

      PEEWEE, DO U UNDERSTAND THE WORD FORMAL. WHY DIDNT U WEAT BATAKARI OR JOROMI AT UR WEDDING? U ARE NOT GOING TO MEET ASANTEHENE, BUT THE SO CALLED PRESIDENT OF GH. DO U EVEN UNDERSTAND WHERE THE CONSTUTION OR THE WORD PRESIDENCY AND WHERE IT EMANATED FROM? AH, LORD WHY DID U CREATE SO MANY STUPID PPL?…WHY?

      SOMETIMES, WHEN I DRIVE. I KEEP TELLIN MYSELF WE NEED AN IQ TEST FOR DRIVERS. IF U DONT PASS THE IQ TEST,U CANT DRIVE. WE HAVE TOO MANY STUPID PPL DRIVING. IN CANADA N US 16YRS OLDS CAN DRIVE. U CANT EVEN VOTE UNTIL U ARE 19 OR 21….SO IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF ACCIDENTS PER YR?

    Seth is right. Th problem is not them just wearing Suits but the context. which is DISCIPLINE and COLLECTIVITY. Even if the weather was too hot to wear a suit, The whole team should have wore a COMMON descent attire. Just look in the picture and you can tell the pride of Pantsil and Gyan from the other less known team members. Teams that travel together need a dress code to eliminate individualism and “showoffness”. This is even done in all clubs. I WONDER WHERE THE TEAM PSYCHOLOGIST WHO WAS APPOINTED BY GFA RECENTLY IS HIDING! I GUESS HE THINKS HIS JOB IS A PAID HOLIDAY.

    GHFUO THINK BIG, I used to respect u until u posted all that thrash above mine,u rather need an iq test before driving because ur daft brain has been doomed to terminal insanity.arrant nonsense

    GHANAFUO and SETH are two blockheaded guys who never impress with their comments. I tot SETH is no longer in the system but it’s unfortunate he’s back again To defent his bound to relegate Hearts of oak. HOK will soon be relegate
