Time for Action!!!


Dede Ayew says the Stars are eveready like the battery!


Black Stars fans, what can one possibly say about this day? I woke up seeing stars. Black stars to be exact. The radio magically came on and continued this Stars fest by filling my ears with talk on the Black Stars. Will Essien start? Who will line up against the Ivorians? What will the final score be? Well, this is all talk and tonight the action will go down. Ghana vs Ivory Coast is probably the most anticipated game so far this Nations cup as both teams are by virtue of qualifying for the world cup and their past history, two of the continent’s top teams. 

Add to that the fact that they are neighboring countries and you see that there is a certain,  should i say rivalry. Oh and the anglophone versus francophone thing. And Essien and Drogba, teammates facing each other. A young team in Ghana versus a very experienced Ivorian team. Les elephants contre the Stars? The subplots are endless. And the excitement and nerves are still rising and will be on a high by game time. Speaking of nerves, I just had a panic attack thinking of Gervinho!!! Oh crap, is that Drogba’s foot in my chest? Better my chest than on the ball on the way to a goal. Sigh. 

But the main thing may be that players like Dede Ayew are ready to match their Ivorian counterparts. Essien, who came into camp not too long says this is a tournament for the underdogs. But other fans are waaaayyyyyy more eloquent than me in giving reasons why the Stars will win. Papa Nii of a Ghanaian show, Taxi driver, was speaking on citi fm and he says ” There’s going to be great telepathy and extrepidation of nature which when quotentised will really oscillate and cause an apologetic and anthropological paralysation.”

I couldn’t possibly top that for eloquence. But I dare you out there to top my predicted line up which is below. And also my prediction. My brain says 1-1 and my heart says 2-1. So please give heart and brain predictions. 

My starting line up is: 

1. Richard Kings(t)on

2. Samuel Inkoom (right back)

3. Harrison Afful (left back)

4. Eric Addo 

5. Lee Addy

6. Michael Essien

7. Agyemang Badu

8. Kwadwo Asamoah

9. Asamoah Gyan

10. Matthew Amoah

11. Dede Ayew

  1. I think u shd drop asamoah gyan and field dominic adiyiah we need goals man! My heart says gh 2 -IC 1. soccer defies logic

  2. Nelly, I think Adiyiah is good but don’t forget even in the U-20s he was a super sub at first. And at the senior level I think he could be our super-sub in the first couple of matches. If he establishes himself then we can promote him. Or?
