    We have a good midfield and what seems to be a reliable attack,we just have to fortify our defense and sort the goalkeeping issue out.Looking at the squad,it will be extremely difficult for any other midfielder to break into the team unless the player is absolutely on form.I think we have personnels for the defence,we just have find the right combination for the defence and if Dauda doesn’t start playing,we simply drop him to the bench and play Kwarasey….Simple.

    • Zozo says:

      your point about the goalkeeping issue and our defence in general is right on point. My guess is Kwarasey should get the nod. We can’t take an inactive goalkeeper to the World cup.Do you have any news on John Mensah?

  2. Viper says:

    Yartey and Eghan,they can add some quality to the side…we will need some wingers,Dede to me, isn’t on form…

  3. Words says:

    Wakaso was chasing money.
    Now he is sitting on bench.He became one of Espanyols best players.

  4. GHFUO, be serious & change ur MENtality says:


  5. Magnum says:

    Opare,Atsu,K Asamoah,Waris,Boakye Yadom, Gyan,Yartey and some few more are regulars in their clubs. what are the rest of them doing on the bench?
