Edubiase striker Baffoe blames referee for halting goal scoring form

New Edubiase striker Emmanuel Baffoe has blamed referee Cecil Fleischer for the inability to extend his goal tally against Hearts of Oak.

The Berkwai-based club lost 2-0 to Hearts but under very controversial circumstances.

Baffoe’s second half strike was disallowed for offside but television replays showed otherwise, thus halting his enviable record of scoring in every game so far in the Premier League.

“I scored a goal but the referee disallowed it for no apparent reason,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com after the game.

“We were the better side on the day and deserved a win but we were unable to do because of the poor officiating today.”

Baffoe however still remained the top goalscorer in the league with six goals out of five matches.

    THE CLASSIC HEARTS OF OAK UNFAIR ADVANTAGE IN GHANA FOOTBALL IS RESURFACING AT A TIME THE POLITICAL TEMPERATURE IN THE COUNTRY IS BOILING. HEARTS OF OAK WITH MOST OF ITS DIRECTORS BEING DIE-HARD NDC BIGWIGS ARE HELPED TO WIN AT ALL COST BY FEAR GRIPPED INEPT REFEREES BOTH AT HOME AND AWAY. HEARTS OF OAK HAS PLAYED 5 MATCHES SO FAR AND ALMOST ALL OF THEM HAVE CONTROVERSY WRITTEN OVER THEM.IT APPEARS ACCRA HEARTS OF OAK DESIRE TO WIN THE PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE TO CLIMAX THEIR 100 YEARS ANNIVERSARY IS ON COURSE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. I’LL ADVISE THE GFA AND ALL STAKEHOLDERS TO TAKE A CRITICAL LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON REGARDING HEARTS OF OAK’S MATCHES TO AVERT ANY POSSIBLE CHAOS.ALL OTHER MEMBER CLUBS IN THE LEAGUE ARE NOT CHOP LIVER AND DESERVE EQUAL AND FAIR SHAKE.

    I STILL STAND BY WORDS WITH NO APOLOGIES. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OUT THERE WHO WON'T MINCE WORDS IN ECHOING MY FEELINGS AND OBSERVATIONS EXCEPT YOU PHOBIAN FANATICS. HEARTS OF OAK SINCE TIME IN MEMORIAL IS KNOWN IN MOST CIRCLES AS THE DARLING CLUB OF LOUD MOUTHS AND HOOLIGANS. WHO IN GHANA IS NOT AWARE OF THE P/NDC ALMOST OFFICIALLY ADOPTED ACCRA HEARTS OF OAK LIKE KWAME NKRUMAH IMPOSED THE REAL REPUBLICAN FOOTBALL CLUB ON GHANAIANS DURING HIS LIFETIME PRESIDENCY.YOU SMALL BOYS WITH PEANUT BRAINS SHOULD DO SOME RESEARCH AND CRITICAL OBSERVATION AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT'S GOING ON.GHANA NEEDS PEACE AT ALL FRONTS AND THIS(FOOTBAL FAVOURATISM) IS A CLEAR -CUT AVENUE FOR CHAOS. WISE UP GUYS AND STOP PLAYING OSTRICH!

    Joe Atiso i hope u went to toilet dis morning b4 making such useless comments on Hearts of Oaks win against New Edubiase. I hate it when talents like u waste u time on baseless arguments and statements when u could have used it profitably. When Hearts of Oak were robbed of glorious chances this and last season, i did not see ur comments? Just grow up and stop acting like a fool..................

    I think you guys are missing the real import of the story. Joe made his point without insulting anyone but what do we see. It is a good obsevation Joe but is it the truth? do we have proof? the ref does not have the benefit of reply. but some mistakes are too glear to avoid. s player punched a player right infront on the ref, assist ref and the 4th ref during the hearts and Kotoko friendly yet no one saw anything. Thats the beauty of the game. is it ? watch the space for this ref and read out loud his record. Jah bless
