    John Boye should be forced to donate all the $100k he Collected to charity.It is that fool who was particularly responsible for our demise in the World Cup aside clueless AA.
    All two goals against USA,scored own goal .He took cocain with his black star team mate Opare ,I guess.Gossiping fool who with Gyan asked Puppet AA to change Kwarasey for Dauda.

Since when do you let it come out when you give money to a member of your family. May be I think differently but if I give money to my grandma in good faith I will make sure it does not becomes news.

    Well down Jonathan,you have shown at least some kind of love for the poor god bless you my brother.However,my little advice to you is that don’t allow yourself to deserve by others to engage certain attitude that can easily derail your foot ball carrier.Once again thank you and stay blessed.
