Much Ayew About Nothing

If you ask me if I agree with the writer, my answer will be yes and no. Yes because I agree that the whole is better than the sum of the parts. I also agree because a team is better than the component parts. But a team here is not just the players, but also the technical, the management, the supporters etc. The coach, the FA and the players are just not in synche. If you give the players of Barcelonia to Kwesi Appiah, he cannot qualify Ghana to the world cup. He just doesn't have it in him as a coach. No because I believe stars make up good teams. Three weeks ago, Tottenham Hotspurs beat Intertionale 3-0 in London. Three days ago, Internationale after the first half also led Tottenham 3-0. The match ended 4-1 and 1-4 on aggregate. The difference between the Tottenham team which played in London and the one which played at the San Sro was Gareth Bale. Stars make a difference. True we need committed players, and this is something Dede has never lacked. So why single him out for blame? On Jordan Ayew, can we objectively say that all the strikers sent to South Africa for AFCON were better than him? At any rate why have the those strikers, except Asamoah Djan been dropped? So Ghana needs a good technical bench, a good FA and committed players to excel. What we have at the moment is not a team but a sum of different components.
