Tom Strand blames Tarkwa pitch in Hearts game

first_imgMedeama coach, Tom Strand has blamed his own pitch for their inability to play according to plan in their game against Hearts of Oak on Sunday.Speaking in the post match interview, Strand believed the result could have been different had the field been of some quality.“Unfortunately we [couldn’t] play the football that we wanted to play because the pitch is not really good for us to play the game we want”It is very interesting that with this submission, the Swede deviates from the norm whereby in other cases when the field had influenced play, it was the visiting team that would complain bitterly about how the bad pitch hampered their progress.This is not the first time the quality of the field has influenced the game one way or another. A few weeks ago, WAFA complained about the field when they visited the Carl Reindorf Park, Liberty Professionals’ home grounds.Meanwhile, Strand also believes that Medeama’s inability to take advantage of the numerous chances they had ultimately did a great disservice to his side. “At the end of the day, we created more chances than Hearts of Oak but we had to put those chances it the net.”The result leaves Medeama 10th on the league with two matches remaining–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Go on, be adventurous this year.”The picture went viral on Facebook with their cheeky post being shared over 3,600 times.One commenter wrote: “Well at least if you received one, you instantly have something to hand to beat him to death with!” Another commenter quipped: “It would definitely be cheaper than flowers – but then again doctors bills might be a bit expensive.”In a hilarious video uploaded earlier this month, a salesman clad in a Bond-like tux, a beanie hat and fashionable white wellies also garnered thousands of views as they outlined even more “alternative” Valentine’s gifts, including his and hers wellies, an ironing board, a mop bucket (to go with the new mop of course), and wipes (for if “things get a bit mucky”).If the special woman in your life is after something a little bit more fashionable, Watsons have that covered too.“Give the love of your life what she wants this year,” they posted along with a picture of these… unique wellies.Well that’s the Valentine’s shopping sorted – at least they’re practical gifts (you can definitely convince her that you were just being thoughtful with these goodies).Cheeky Donegal shop is offering a ‘clean sweep’ of Valentine’s gifts was last modified: February 13th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cleaningFunnygift guideletterkennymopValentines DayViralWatson Hirelast_img read more
