    I get so much worried about how these young lads start so brightly and fade out with time instead of progressing up the ladder. Can somebody tell me why?

    Hahaha, I gave my reply and it was deleted 'cos, I am/was telling the truth and I will say it again. Our players can't play for a long period due to age cheating. How can a 35 year old who has reduced his age by ten years play with the one with the right age (25)? I am in my forties and attended high school with two siblings who played or are still in the national team/s and I was shocked to learn of their ages. I met them at New York and they said, I quote "you have to do what you have to do fit in" unquote. They can cheat but not nature. By the way, I wish them all the best not forgetting all the national teams. Over to you Joe Lartey.
