He’s coming home, he’s coming, Junior’s coming home..

A couple of comments and emails quite rightly point out my all-but ignorance of the African Cup of Nations which has been going on in earnest for the last few weeks.  That’s partly because I’ve not managed to catch any of the matches, and because there’s been plenty going on domestically to distract me from keeping up with it.

It seems our Junior has been making rather a stir, though – although Ghana are now out of tournament, he’s been getting consistent column inches throughout the time.  Whether he returns immediately or remains for the duration of the tournament is unclear, but what is clear is that when he does return his profile will have increased.

And not just for his performances on the pitch either – it seems that Agogo has become rather a sex symbol with his African public!  One fan was so impressed with his contribution to Ghana’s competition he went so far to offer his grand-daughter to him to take as a wife! 

So well done to Junior for, by all accounts, making a decent account of himself in the international spotlight – here’s to hoping he can bring the kind of passion and drive he’s shown in Ghana’s colours back to the City Ground to give a much needed boost to our faltering promotion bid.

  1. Still got 3rd/4th place playoff (today) to play in but it does give him an extra day to recover before we go to Dirty Leeds should he be avaiable.

  2. In such idiot games (3rd/4th play-off), since the goal was the trophy and it was lost, usually managers play their reserve side, and I hope Le Roy does the same for Ghana today and Junior gets a rest. We need him like crazy. It’s a pity they lost though, and even a bigger one since he missed on a header a few minutes from time that went just over the crossbar. Heartbreaking! But Junior had a super tournament, starting in all of Ghana’s five games and helping himself to two goals in the process, while also earning a penalty that was converted and gave them victory in the opening match. Like I have said before, in the summer (or maybe earlier?) we will have difficulty in keeping him whether we get promoted or not. Now a lot of people have seen him!

  3. I have watched most the ANC and let me tell you nffc Junior has achieved God-like status! He hails from the same area that the hosts were based, and the Ghanains (spelling?) absolutely love him.
    We are gonna miss him when he leaves in the summer…
