Feature: Hearts of Oak board led by Togbe must sack Polo tonight or face wrath of Phobians

Published on: 23 April 2014
Mohammed Polo must not stay in charge of Hearts of Oak and longer

Hearts of Oak have deteriorated and coming down in biblical proportions and Wednesday's shocking and shambolic 3-0 defeat to Hasaacas must be the final reason why Mohammed Polo must not stay in charge of the Phobians by tomorrow's training session.

The management board of the team led by Togbe Afede and Neil Armstrong must now feel how foolish and spineless they were when they sacked the highly-impressive coach David Duncan who was then moulding the team into title contenders.

Now following Wednesday's disgraceful 3-0 defeat to Hasaacas, a result that NEVER would have happened under the likes of Ato Ahwoi, Harry Zakkour and Tommy Okine - Togbe Afede and Neil Armstrong must now feel the weight of that bizzare and suspicious decision to day away with Duncan.

Now Togbe Afede and Neil Armstrong are presiding over the most disgraceful era of this proud club with rich traditions. Sadly it is those so called educated people who are running this club into the gutter....

Their foolish decision to put Mohammed Polo, one of the legends of the club, in charge of the club when he had achieved nothing in coaching was stupid and despicable.

Now their stupid but bold manoeuvre has paid instant and expected dividend of ruining all the history behind the great club that has been built since 1911. It was puts the judgement of these two men in serious doubt.

But they have got the chance to redeem themselves following his disgraceful and degrading showing in Sekondi by SACKING POLO TONIGHT or the supporters of the club could be forced to force Togbe and Armstrong out of office to save them from further disgrace and embarrassment. And there are similarities with the sacking of Manchester United coach David Moyes.

This comes quick in the wake of Manchester United's decision to sack Moyes who was picked by the ‘Great One’ Alex Ferguson following his memorable 27-year reign at Old Trafford.

But just 10-months into his new high-pressured job as boss of the Reds, the former Everton manager is given the sack and rightfully so.

Moyes won 27 of the 51 games he presided over as Manchester United boss, drawing nine and losing a staggering 15 with a 52.94 percent winning rate.

United could have waited until the end of the season to let go of the Scot but strategically pulled the plug now with just four matches left to the end of the season and for good reasons.

I mean why wait to get rid of someone who is clearly disgracing and tearing down traditions– by which times things might get all but certainly worse – than to let go of him now to freshen the mood and atmosphere around the club?

It gives the club sometime to adjust to the imminent changes while the players are fully aware ahead of time – before heading out on summer breaks and the World Cup that they will be returning to base with a new man at the helm.

Contrast Moyes’ predicaments to that of Mohammed Polo at Hearts of Oak and there is an even more compelling case to get the ex Ghana star out with alacrity.

Polo has played 15 games, won five, drawn two and lost an unthinkable nine within just four months of his appointment against some minnows.

Polo’s winning rate stands at 31% – total failure – and yet still he remains in the job now even though he is a ‘goner’ at the end of the season.


Polo must simply go but crucially must go NOW!!!

    Ah!Fred is this not nkwaseasem!! What a kind of kankama journalism is this?? Like he Ameenu credit himself most of the articles on this site,why is he refusing to credit this to himself as well? Besides no ghost can come out from the cemetery to write an article for GSN and be allowed a publishing space without going through due processes..I think Ameenu Shaddow is not only stupid but a coward journalist with head full of idiocies

    Please leave Ameenu alone,the truth hurts.the truth the so called mgt were stupid to cut corners by employing a very cheap coach who knows how to talk like a Parrott and doesn't walk the talk..bunch of cheap folks who call themselves mgt.

    Pls Mr Assembly Man how old are you? Are u the spokes Man fo Togbe or Neil? If u re then u must be ashamed of yourself.Any true phobian will be happy with this article because what Neil and Togbe did was not good and now they can't sack the coach because it will make them look "foolish" for sacking coach Duncan.Any serious business man wont do this.All these problems started when Hearts floated shares. Its a pity Hearts need to be saved because they are loosing their roots ,Supporters no longer go to stadium because they play nothing.Any thing with a good coach always beat Hearts since Polo came and if this continues Kotoko can get their 4 nil revenge this season. Polo!!!!! Pls resign and save our team

    Why use the word "foolish" on togbe? The fact that all phobians wants Polo out doesnt give us the power to put togbe low. Please, let us be very careful with our words.#let us be decent

    Adu,are you also same as Ameenu Shaddow and where lies your interest?i need to tell you this too,I never supported the sacking of Duncan either as well as togbe making himself 'the Asantehene of the club ".But am mad at Ameenu Shaddow for the reason why he would publish such sensitive article and refuse to credit it to himself as the writer rather he decided to leave it blank with no name .is that how a journalist is thought at school?do you ever come across ghost writers or reports for mega publishing companies yourself .he Ameenu easily credit himself with majority of articles on this vitus financed website.but why is he hiding over this one and that's an irresponsible journalism..if you are reading my statements I hv been touching on the subject very much ..he should come out as man to claim that he is behind such articles or better shut up.all because he is trying to instigate the fans against the club with his article then if fans react based on this article ,he will claim he didn't write the article to do that but who is behind this now? Is if him or the other guy akyereko or so?its better for him to come out openly on this matter to garner support from us or he better shut up pretending to be a ghost reporter.that one no common sense is in it..

    You call yourself proph but do you also use your head at all? You know my problem ? Do you think an article is complete without the name of the writer?

    Aah! Tordiah,oyiwa ..these are some of the things am insulting Ameenu Shaddow about that these guys like Adu and that little minded proph don't understand .this is irresponsible the he ,Ameenu refused to give his name as the person responsible for the article ,,I mean come on! Respect that younger guys have lost for elderly in society has affected negative the lives of we the youths .i don't support polo nor a big fan of togbe's "lordly " decisions at the club.but piece of article is the real bullshit..he Ameenu must write properly and direct his words in the right ways and am sure he will gain support from the fans not such irresponsible piece of garbage he wrote there to rather instigate we the the end how much has he contributed to the oak tree family ,I guess not one kobo sef
