GPL [SILLY] REVIEW: Will Guinness Fall For Hearts’ ‘1759’ Bait?

You’ve probably read a few reviews already on the latest match-week of the Ghana Premier League (GPL), and that’s fine.

What, though, about a review that flips the script right over, revealing all those not-so-serious details you missed?

Accra Hearts of Oak are on a hot streak, fetching their fourth victory on the spin by beating Techiman Eleven Wonders on the road last Friday.

That 1-0 win lifted them to the top of the Ghana Premier League table for the first time in nearly five years — 1,759 days, to be precise.

That number, for those who know their alcoholic stuff, rings a bell: 1759, for any who hasn’t yet figured it out, was the year in which St. James’s Gate Brewery began producing the now-world-famous Guinness beer.

Each bottle of Guinness proudly bears those four digits, and Hearts probably took some inspiration from it… either that or the Phobians have just positioned themselves, knowingly or not, to secure sponsorship from the Irish dry stout’s producers.

But even if we wouldn’t see the symbolic harp replacing Sunon Asogli’s logo on Hearts’ shirt anytime soon, could we — at the very least — look forward to a limited edition Guinness bottle to commemorate the club’s impeccable timing and return to being — even if only temporarily — the best in the land?


2019-20 GHANA PREMIER LEAGUE PREVIEW: KARELA UNITED VS KING FAISAL |  Factsgh-the best of authentic News

Minimalism is the new cool, and few are doing it better than Karela United right now. The Aiyinase-based side is currently on the league’s longest winning run, lasting all of six games.

That string of results, as a testament to their minimalist tastes, isn’t cluttered with too many wins. Karela, in fact, have only taken two of those, preferring to do the bare-minimum in the other four fixtures, picking no more than a point in each.

Really, why do the most when you can simply do just enough?
