Glo Premier League Preview 2009/2010: Week 1

gloGlo Premier League begins this weekend with some hot encounters. Unless I miss my guess, we are in for some exciting match-ups. Two of the games are regional derbies while there is a game between allies. The two new entrants, Aduana Stars and New Edubiase FC are all on away assignments where they are likely to have a baptism of fire. Find below a game-by-game preview:

OHENE DJAN: Great Olympics – Asante Kotoko

The return of Ghana’s ‘Wonder Club’ Great Olympics couldn’t have come with a more exciting clash. Olympics and Kotoko have been sweet allies in the past. The Kotoko-Oly friendship was perhaps born out of the common spite for Champions Hearts of Oak. However, this friendship must be shoved to the gutters if Olympics are to make clear their determination to avoid relegation. Great Olympics goes into this game with a much more youthful team. Ben Mensah, Bilal Mohammed, Bright Bortey and Eric Adjei will be players to watch out for in coach Dauda Lutterodt’s side.

Taking over from a club that is struggling to find wins, it is going to be interesting to see how Paa Kwasi Fabien will be able to pick from the 48 players available to him to overcome the Great Olympics challenge. Will the inclusion of Baafuor Gyan from FC Saturn in Russia and Kabiru Imoro come as a blessing to the Fabulous lads? Olympics should not mess up with any of the following as they can each produce an ego deflating performance: Kwabea Yaro, Francis Coffie and Stephen Manu (B.A, they call him)

Ghana – World Youth Champions!

I wish I knew where to start from or where to take this article. But I will discipline myself. Black Satellites 2009, wow, what a team, what a spirit! And my word, can victory be sweeter? How do I choose the words to extol this history-making Black Satellites team? If there is anyone who doubts that dreams come true, that resilience is the fuel of success, that a successful person’s true strength is the person next to him, that prayers get answered, I hope the Black Satellites 2009 have given you the answers you are looking for. 

FBL-WORLD-U20-BRA-GHA

The last time Ghana won anything at FIFA level was 14 years ago at Ecuador 95 FIFA Under 17 Championship. Now that is long ago. Little wonder the streets of Ghana were filled with chants, horn-tooting and instant parties on Friday night when the hero Daniel Adjei made that historic save against Brazil’s Maicon to make Ghana World Youth Champions. What other excuse can Ghanaians have to drink the Friday away? The Brazil of Africa has defeated the Brazil of the world! Holala!

I never for once doubted the ability of this team. From the foundations built by Bashir Hayford in 2005/2006 through the additional assistance of Osam Duodu to the capable hands of Sellas Tetteh, I have always had confidence in this  generation of Ghanaian footballers. Big congratulations to these boys and especially their management team led by Mr. Jordan Anagbla. They are heroes and ought to return home to a rousing welcome.
