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