With the season over, the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) should be working on organizing the GHALCA Top Four Tournament which marks the climax of the league calendar. Contenders for this year’s tourney have already nominated themselves – Asante Kotoko, Heart of Lions, Arsenals and Liberty Professionals. Their fans have already commenced the ‘mouthballing’ championships for the bragging rights.

While all attention goes to the top four finishers on the league table, there are other ‘statistical top fours’ which come up quite strongly and are worth a second look.

For instance, who is the weakest link among the top four finishers? Who kept the most clean sheets away from home? How did Hasaacas who escaped relegation become the third most prolific scoring team – Does the name David Anars ring any bell? Who are the season’s draw masters? Which team had the most leaky defense?

These are but a few interesting questions which come up when the Onetouch Premier League information is compile.
