For almost a decade, the Ghana Black Stars doesn’t seem to have a comprehensive plan and it is worryingly evident.
Invite players who pop up anywhere in the world and put them together for two three games. Lose one game, abandon the batch and continue the cycle.
Overlook and damage the local league and youth systems, look out for players bearing Ghanaian surnames or with slightest Ghanaian lineage. Send a delegation of four officials in an Emirates Air business class to chase them up. Get one out of the ten Euro-Ghanaians and convince them to join. Pretend there are no players of his likes in your league and bring him here. Pamper them well.
Invite players not getting playing time in Europe and those cutting teeth in Dubai, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, China, Tanzania, Congo, Turkey and third Divisions in Spain.
Pretend it is some strong team. Justify the call ups and call bluff of those who don’t understand.
Get a few voices to agree with the strange call ups on radio and start playing.
Qualify for the AFCON by paying $10,000 to each player to beat Sao Tome, Sierra Leone, Mozambique and Comoros.
Begin preparation for the AFCON by lying to Ghanaians about going to win it. Get a Presidential dinner and promise him the team is ready to bring the trophy to the Jubilee House. Get the President convinced and prepare a budget of 8 million dollars to be spent in two weeks.
Fill the flight with supporters and top officials as well to go have fun.
Return after 3 games and sack the coach, institute a committee to look into the scandal.
Matter dies naturally.
Cycle continues. NO PLAN.
