    Good signing, a very good buy indeed. It is now left with the likes of Sakyi Quaye (New Edubiase), Emmanuel Ansong (Aduana Stars), Yakubu Mohammed (AshantiGold), Daniel Asamoah (Ashantigold) and Wahab Abdullai (Dunkwa United). Surely this season is gonna be ours, well done Togbe!!

    This is the mistake the big clubs make 3 seasons ago this would have cost hearts far lesser than the price they paid for him now.Instead of developing the youth system we spend huge moneys to purchase players expensively from clubs who have good youth development system so the end results is clubs always having huge loss deficits.Wise up big clubs any way Fiamenyo welcome to the oak tree nd remember we need more than the 5 goals u scored last season.Yakubu should follow nd my fellow phobian fans please try and go to stadium when hearts are playing matches because nothing good comes cheap.

    I very much agree with Fred. Hearts of Oak should be developing their youth teams to provide the players for the senior team. This type of buying players is a huge waste of money and very unproductive way of developing and building your team for the future. What Hearts are doing is a short cut to long term development.

    Certainly the repercussion of not grooming the young talent.Phobia allowed Fiamenyo to leave and have now gone to pay a huge sum for his return.Undoubtedly Fiamenyo is good material but this is a lesson to Glorious club.This season is ours.Phobia the best.
