It was a laudable idea for the GFA to have synchronized our league with that of the Europeans. It was a beauty to behold when in one particular season, we started our league at the same time when the EPL had started. But what brought us back to this situation again?
Protracted disciplinary conflicts brought us to where we are now. We thought we had learnt enough lessons from this unpleasant situation. But it looks protests have become an indelible mark on our league’s garment.
With one match in hand, the chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), feels convinced that we must postpone the last match of the league to give time for us to address some conflicts. In spite of the elaborate talks by officials of the GFA, explaining how we can take out such undesirable protests from the league, it seems we are getting to it again.
Earlier this month, the FA Disciplinary Committee sat on cases involving Hearts of Oak, Aduana Stars and Accra Great Olympics. With just one match in hand, the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA is flooded with two new additional issues and they are yet to settle any of them. Information gathered from the DC indicates that a decision on the case between Olympics and Hearts will be published soon.
We are only hoping that the remaining cases – Olympics vrs. Elmina Sharks and Tema Youth vrs. Bechem FC will be prosecuted with expedition so that the next league season will start in time.
Already, the EPL is eight matches into the new season.
