Aduana Stars – Another Flash in the Pan?

At the end of 2008/2009 season, several experts of the game unanimously believed it might not take long for the Hearts-Kotoko hegemony to collapse. Half way through this season,  indications are clear that this might just be the year for new kings of the Glo Premier League. The ever-burning flames from Dormaa Ahenkro, Aduana Stars might just steal the show this year.

At the end of the first half of the season, the league newbies had exceeded all expectations and had jumped ahead of the pack.  Aduana Stars finished the season undefeated at home. Even though they had the weakest attack (scoring  only 10 goals), they were the best defensive team, conceding only 5 goals.

All Stars, Hearts of Oak and Kessben FC are hot on their trail, but it is refreshing to witness a newly promoted club wrestle with the greats. The rise and rise of Aduana Stars is not happening by default. There is a good balance of managerial acumen, superior bench, team depth and die-hard support which is pushing the tem to the summit.

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’
