    GFA doesnt like Black stars players who fight the most corrupt FA commitee members. The samething that they did to Baba Armando who was also stood up to fight corruptions in the Black stars managements but they threw him out. what a shame for Ghana football? God will surely fight them for us. Sulley Muntari is not a bad guy in the Black stars but he always wanted to make sure no official corrupt Ghana monies. But GFA wont allow him and also used media to put him in a bad records,but God is always alive. Muntari is a wonderful footballer who job is to help poor and needy kids and old folks in Ghana,even in abroad. He always says that he doesnt like most corrupt leaders who spent Ghana wealth nyafu nyafu. Moses Parker insulted Muntari by asking him who the hell is Muntari? when at the time Muntari stood up to add an idea to the money saga in Brazil. He was to speak on behalf of the whole team that lead him into this Moses Parker saga. Parker insulted Muntari to a limit he cant help it but to fight him. And i love Muntari for that. He should have break that mother fucker kneck and his arms all. Can Moses Parker kick his own balls and penis not to talk of kicking a football. If Ghana want to win a trophy they must sack all these idiot and pigs from the Black stars commitee and Nyantekyi himself. They only fucks boys anusses and small girls and uses Ghana monies and be buying cars for them corrupted leaders your times shall comes very sooner all eyes will be on you.

    I agree with you Dr. Who. Muntari left the Black Stars on high.... His masterful display in the midfield against Germany is one of his finest moments. He ensured that the German football machine did not dominate the midfield allowing Ghana to be able to charge forward for goals. Add that to the incisive pass he gave Gyan leading to Ghana's second goal.

    Sulley was our best performer in midfield for the two games he played at the WC.It was rather unfortunate he got entangled in this money saga leading to his fisticuff with Mr Moses Parker...I watched the game and was impressed with his performance...Sulley,keep it up.
