How did they get better than the Nigerian National team.
Forget Nonda. His country ain't going to the World Cup.
Muntari and Essien are silly, ditto the Ghanaian crew. If they really are injured, why don't they make the trip to camp and let the national team doctors look at them. Why did they just sit back at their clubs and plead injury? Mark my words, Essien will play for Ch€£$k¥ before the end of the Nations Cup.
I would continue to preach this NEVER write the super eagles playas out. Remember the super eagles destroyed their last two qualifier opponents with five goals. If u think the Ghanian team can defeat the super eagles, then i must say u very wrong. Tell me which defence in Africa can stop the attacking qualities of the Super Eagles? None, absolutely none. for the defenceive aspect, we've got Obodo, Aliyu, and others. The only problem should be Would they play as a team?, not comparing the Ghanian defenders to Nigeria's. A defence that Obi could dismantle with ease.
I'm a member of Juventus's forum, and we all knew that Vieira was coming to Turin at least 4 days before the press knew.
As for Kuffour, while on the one hand I'd agree that he's better than our best, his best days are behind him, and he has been part of that Romanista defense that has performed woefully thus far this season.
Zlatan absolutely owned him at the Olimpico for example, using him to cut the grass before scoring a goal that many in Italy are already calling the goal of the seaon...
My beef with Nigerian defenders (and players in general) is that they don't follow their careers' best interests. only the money and because of that end up in clubs that do nothing to improve their game. Imagine if Yobo were at Juve now... He'd be playing and training with the best in the world and as a result would definitely improve. Ditto Olofinjana had he gone to Monaco. Now he is bench warming at Wolverhampton!
Kuffour on the other hand moved from FC Bayern to a club that (even though I hate the geezers) can lay claim to being highly ranked. Same as Appiah. He left Juve (he was surplus to requirements) and went to Fernabache. At least at Ferna he saw UCL football which no matter how you cut it would help build his game!
Even though, we have gone off topic, but the whole world knows that Viera's sales is shocking and it is not privy to any press as you claimed.
You are accusing me of relying solely on BBC reports, instead of watching games. Not only do i watch live games, i do watch your Italian league as well([b] see post #44 of the thread "WILL CHELSEA WIN 2005 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE...).
You are a Juve fan. Good
The link is for you to know Juve want to off-load him at all cost.
1) I am happy you admitted that Kuffors best years is behind in your last paragraph.
2) You said , you knew Viera will be coming to Juve. Can Arsenal fans help me to answer this guy please? Bagoma, Pie1ect Where are you.
What position does Osei Kuffor plays now? Right full back: you don't need a super Stars to play that , all these Eyinmba, shooting stars and flying eagles guys can play it easily.
1) How many matches do Appiah played for you in the last two seasons?
You accused me of just yarning. Fine !
Appia is a solid player who left because of Viera
Kuffor is playing the game of his life at Roma.
For me i wont give personal attack but i will tell you what you dont know.
For Appiah, just read this : http://www.sportsafrique.net/news.html#_GHANA_CAPTAIN_APPIAH
For Kuffor : He was once a good player, he spends over ten years at Bayern, he had lost form.
You ask for any Nigeria player that can do his job, ordinary Abbey George will play better in that position
These are his honour:
Intercontinantal Club Cup 2001
European Champions League Winner 2001
U17 World Champion 1991
U20 African Champion 1993
German National Champion 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003
German Cup Winner 1998, 2000, 2003
Ghana Player of the Year 1998, 1999, 2001
Ghana Athlete of the Year 2001
Runner-up African Player of the Year 1999, 2001
DID YOU SEE ANYTHING ON ROMA THERE ?
You registered here just to say that?
At least Kuffor has played in top teams. If there is an award for stupidity as footballers, it should go to the following Nigerian players: Olofinjana (turned down Monaco and the Champions League to play in Wolves), Yobo (turned down Arsenal and Juventus to go to Everton), Utaka (left Lens for Rennes)!
Let me not scatter-yarn here...
this Akolawole guy, u just dey yarn anyhow.
personally, i believe if we play Ghana now, we might lose. Ghana isn't an average team anymore.
as per appiah, i guess u've never seen him play so u shouldn't even yarn. appiah is a very solid player and highly regarded at fenerbache. FYI, he wasn't bundled out of juve. he left because vieira came in (obvious). he left juve with his head held high and not because of loss of form.
kuffor is playing the game of his life at roma. he has become a roma favourite already so Akolawole get your facts right before u crucify. we don't have a defender as good as kuffor.
Ghanian Frimpong is a good player but not the best player in Nigeria.
My Previous comment is not an opinion BUT a fact. Please prove me wrong.
Ghana won Nations cup more than any other Africa country with a record of five times. When was that? The last time they won was Libya 1982. Imagine 23 years ago, even Essien was not born then.
## Your comment on Bagoma is wrong. She actually said that in respect to out-of-form players like Kuffor and Appiah.###
While i respect Ghana so much but they've never been better than Nigeria Players.
I am an expert in African football with Nigeria and Ghana as area of speciality, i know virtually all Ghanian star players in the last 20years. ( You are free to ask me any questions. OK)
Ordinary Yakubu Aiyegbeni is better than any of your Striker. He has been a 20 goals-a season player for the past five years.
You mentioned few players in your post: I still maintain that beside Suleman Mutairu and my boy Michael Essien, others are Average players
1) Stephen Appiah is Ghanian team captain, used to be a good player, started with Hearts of Oak in Ghana, bundled out of Juventus now playing for a less fancied team in Fernabache .
2) Essien: Workhaholic football, currently plays for my team.Best footballer in French League last season, most expensive African footballer, BUT WHAT CAN A TREE DO IN A fOREST ?
Remember one of your greatest footballer of all time;Abdulrazak is a full blodied Nigeria. He is a Yoruba.
