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.

It appears that the strong leadership from Mr. Kingley Osie-Bonsu, Takyi Arhin, George Gyau and the rest of the men behind the Flames of Dormaa is a major contribution to the solid performance of the team. Setting out to finish among the Top 4, these men have walked their talk; providing the team every support they need to succeed. At the start of the season, the vowed not to lose at home this season.

Glo Premier League 09/10 Preview: Round 2

ABRANKESE: Kessben FC-Great Olympics

 If you are a lover of beautiful football then this should be the game you are likely to be interested in. Home side Kessben are on a good run, beating King Faisal Babies 1-2 away from home in round 1. They will expect to produce another good result, but Accra Great Olympics are a difficult team to beat.

Players to watch Kessben: Richard Mpong, Prince Attakora Gyima and Bismark Idan

Players to watch Olympics: Muntari Tagoe, Malik Akowua, Eric Adjei

Prediction: Kessben 1:2 Great Olympics

  

WA PARK: All Stars-Ashanti Gold SC

 The Miners come to this game with an unconvincing home win against Bechem Chelsea while the Wa lads produced a spirited away draw down south. Quality wise, I rate All Stars above The Miners and I do not expect them to lose at home. However the Wa lads will have to find a good replacement for suspended Michael Ocansey.

Players to watch All Stars: Daniel Bomfa, Robert Dabuo, Kwame Nsor

Players to watch Ashgold: David Telfar, Fatau Dauda, Daniel Asamoah

Prediction: All Stars 2:0 AshGold
