  4. Tiger year says:

    I believe that the president of GFA will give Milo a second chance. I want Milo badly because he is the right man for the black stars job. People who don’t like Milo must not buy milo

  5. Love says:

    I tink milo deserve de second chance.

  6. Adebayo says:

    GNS must report the facts: Atsu played only the first half of the friendly against Evian and was substituted at half time when the score was goalless. Although he played well, you cannot really say he ‘was key’ to Porto’s victory!

  7. Chu says:

    we nid a system of willful possesion with few players doing damage and and not milo who cant equalise if we get behind

  8. Chu says:

    No matter how derek impresses, he is just that same loss of concentration who thinks he is senior. ansong, grease elbows
