Home and abroad, football was on the menu this weekend, being served in all of its flavours. Here at WWLTW, though, we like it best in one particular shade, namely, the ‘weird’ — and, thankfully, we did have enough of that.
Join us feast, then!
GPL MUSICAL CHAIRS
The end-of-season composition of the ongoing Ghana Premier League‘s top four is pretty much obvious at this advanced stage of the campaign, but little is guaranteed with respect to the order in which that quartet — Wa All Stars, Aduana Stars, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko — would arrange themselves in the final analysis. With each passing match-day, the structure gets a fresh re-shuffle, with the clubs in contention dropping and picking points in a manner less predictable than a woman’s mood. It has seemed at times that no-one truly wants it enough, but WWLTW refuses to blame them. Really, when you have a league trophy so ugly and cheap-looking, why would anyone be so keen on winning it?
Let the ‘musical chairs‘ continue!
LALLANA ROBBING KLOPP’S VISION
The next updated list of endangered species you’d see anywhere should probably include Jurgen Klopp’s glasses. Liverpool’s opening 2016/17 Premier League fixture at Arsenal on Sunday marked the second time in his two seasons in England that the German’s trademark eyewear had been sacrificed on the altar of his characteristic over-zealous celebration of his side’s goals. The latest specs-robbing strike, Liverpool’s second in a 4-3 thriller, was netted by English international Adam Lallana — yea, same guy whose late winner at Norwich in another high-scoring game last term saw Klopp lose an earlier pair. It’s just as well the former Southampton man doesn’t net too often, eh?
Fans of Medeama were reasonably elated after Kwesi Donsu’s injury-time effort downed Congolese giants TP Mazembe when the clubs clashed in their penultimate 2016 Caf Confederation Cup Group A fixture. Little did they know, though, that 3-2 victory had accomplished very little: it hadn’t stopped Mazembe from qualifying and, even worse, had the Yellow and Mauves in a precarious situation where they’d have to not lose to MO Bejaia in Algeria to secure the remaining qualifying slot. Damn!
