Glo Premier League: Round 17 results and some interviews

DORMAA: Aduana Stars 10 Eleven Wise

HERBERT ADDO (Coach of Aduana Stars)

“Eleven Wise had a bad defensive set-up. We broke them down easily. This led to complacency which almost cost us the win. I think some of my players are not serious so beginning from this weak I will bring some serious changes in he team.”

“I want to win one game after the other. Next week, we come up against Olympics in Accra. I am going to map up a good strategy to win that game.”

“Coaching is a crazy job. We have a 17 games unbeaten run, yet when I lose just one game, fans will call for my head. So I am focused, I want to win my next game.” Continue reading ‘Glo Premier League: Round 17 results and some interviews’


Under Pressure – Five Glo Premiership coaches who are likely to get fired

We are only two weeks into the Glo Premier League and already some coaches are feeling the pressure from club officials and fans. There are indications that some coaches are either going to put in an early resignation or they are going to get sacked.  Here is my pick of the top five coaches who may not survive the season. 

[5] Ebo Mends (Berekum Arsenal)

For a team that has no patience for home losses to play two games in the Brong-Ahafo Region (their home) without a win, there must be something wrong somewhere. Ebo Mends is on my watch list for coaching casualties. He will be lucky to survive. I am not sure if club C.E.O, Yakubu Moro will lose trust in Ebo this early, but it will be interesting to follow the reaction of fans if Berekum Arsenal does not conjure a home win against Wa All Stars on match-day 3.  Continue reading ‘Under Pressure – Five Glo Premiership coaches who are likely to get fired’


Glo Premier League Review: Round 1

gloPrince Attakora-Gyima of Kessben FC set the season to a flying start with his 17th minute goal against home side and city rivals King Faisal at the Babayara stadium. On Week 1 of the Glo Premiership, 12, 12 goals were scored. Only two clubs managed (Heart of Lions and Ashgold) home wins. Kessben FC was the only away winner.Three games ended in draws with goals and 1 in a goalless draw. On the match day, three penalty kicks were awarded  to home teams.

 Some outstanding players were Richard Mpong of Kessben FC, Samuel Ayew Yeboah of Eleven Wise, goal keeper Muntari Tagoe of Accra Hearts of Oak, Mohammed Tanko of Heart of Lions, Prince Attakora Gyima of Kessben FC, Samuel Yaw Owusus of Berekum Arsenals. Find full details of results below:

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)

Prediction: Great Olympics 2:1Asante Kotoko Continue reading ‘Glo Premier League Preview 2009/2010: Week 1’


Why would anyone care about the Glo Premier League?

Mr. Welbeck Abrah Appiah - PLB Boss

The pump and pageantry expected to herald this seasons $ 3 million Glo Premier League which will commence on Sunday 18th October may not come after all. The Premier League Board (PLB) has cancelled their scheduled launching of the Glo Premier League citing their inability to get hold of  busy football officials to attend the function as their reason. 

Apart from hitches in the launching of the league, it appears there are some issues with the commencement of league itself. Pressmen I have spoken to seem to have no idea how to obtain accreditation to cover league games. Ardent soccer fans have complained of the missing excitement a few days to the season and club officials have hinted  that even though they are ready to kick off, they have not received their share of the $3 million Glo sponsorship package. Meanwhile, to date, the FA website has no data on squad lists neither does the football-loving public have as much information about the up-coming season as would have been expected. One begins to wonder if Ghana is serious about its football.  Continue reading ‘Why would anyone care about the Glo Premier League?’
