At the end of proceeding hearts won by a lone goal through a penalty after the ball hit the elbow of a Kotoko defender.
Fabulous as Kotoko are known could not shine to retain the eight-year-old jinx of not allowing the Phobians to smell victory at home.
What saddened me after the referee Samual Suker had blew his whistle to end the game was the sad spectacle of Kotoko supporters and fans throwing water bottles on the pitch.
In fact, it was sad to see such behavior at this time of world development when the game of football has become more scientific and businesses are sponsoring with huge investments.
I was supporting Kotoko during the match, but their follower’s behavior shocked me and I decided not to follow a troublesome club whose supporters do not understand the game of football, which I know is decided by win, lose or draw.
Their problem was that the penalty awarded to Hearts was not right, when it occurred right in front of the referee in the Kotoko 18 box.
For me, I recommend referee Samuel Suker for takin such a bold decision and I think the Kotoko goalie should have saved the ball, because he never played much in the game.
For Hearts of Oak, they were resolute in defence with Atinga heading the defence forces and man of the match, Malik Akowah controlling the midfield like a general, suppling telling passes to strikers Samuel Yeboah, Razak Patrick and Samad.
For Kotoko, I think their shining star was Gyamfi, but he played to the gallery and his total work done was minimal.
Hearts and Kotoko games are always crowd pullers and attract many football fans, but people must know that there is life after the game, so they must not give themselves to the security apparatus to be harassed for nothing.
I plead that the football fans would learn to be gentle, respectful and responsible when they go to watch matches.
Also, the media must not stop the education to transform until, spectators comport themselves at the stadia.
People say Ghana Football is down and I can feel it, but what can be done to raise the game?
Much depends on the media and organisers, here we refer to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Premier League Board (PLB) Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) and the National Sports Authority (NSA).
All these bodies must play a role to curb hooliganism in Ghana Football.
May 9 is about to be remembered and we have to learn to use the memory for positive things.
At 60 years, our nation has come of age and we as touch bearers of peace and unity in Africa must lead the positive things and not negative and destructive habits.
The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) must not stop in the education of the fans.
