Glo Premier League 2011/2012: Tema To Be Painted Red As Akosombo Turns Blue on Match Day 1


Glo Premier League returns for the 2011/2012 season this week [9th October, 2011] with some exciting Match Day 1 fixtures. Title defenders Berekum Chelsea will begin their campaign at Akosombo where they face Mighty Jets, who had troubles staying in the league last season.

Akosombo to turn blue

While the Champions had a pretty flamboyant pre-season with some exciting new signings and interesting friendlies, Mighty Jets had a rather quieter preparation. Star players like Abdul Basit, Charles Taylor and Awako Gladson are enough to cause enough havoc at Akosombo.  If they repeat last season’s performance where they played possessive football with zero attacking bite, Jets are likely to go down heavily in this game

Tema to be painted red?

While Akosombo is expected to come to light with excitement as the Title Defenders pass by, much attention will go to Tema where back-from-relegation Tema Youth will be baptized in the red-hot fires of the very boisterous Kumasi Asante Kotoko. Many fans will expect magic from Ivorian-import Ahmed Toure and his scintillating strike partner – Nathaniel Asamoah. But the much-discussed strikers will have to be in their best elements to overcome Tema Youth’s goalkeeper Joseph halm, whose abilities have received rave reviews in many circles.

Perhaps the rainbow will show up in Cape Coast

Then, in Cape Coast, Berekum Arsenal will face struggling-Accra Hearts of Oak.  The scores were even when the two clubs met last season. On match Dat 14 last season, Hearts lost 1-0 at home courtesy a Mumuni Ouattara goal. Ghana Youth Captain Mahatma Otoo avenged his clubs loss by grabbing the winner when Hearts of Oak won 0-1 on the return encounter in Berekum. This season, Otoo is still at Hearts, but the club is struggling to build a formidable team. Arsenals may just take advantage of the current disjointed Hearts team to pull a surprise win in this game.
