The uncertainty of professional soccer is what has made it the most popular sport in the world.
That Leicester City could beat the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs, Manchester United and co to the 2015/16 English Premier League title. That Greece shocked everyone to lift the Euro 2004 and Zambia did it at AFCON 2012.
That Wa All Stars / Legon Cities defied the odds to win the 2016 Ghana Premier League title. Aduana Stars in 2009/10 and Berekum Chelsea in 2011.12.
There is always the first time in football and we ask whether King Faisal could achieve a first league honor this season.
After Week 7, the Faisal Boys are leading the pack with 16 points followed by Aduana Stars who have 14 but 3rd placed Kotoko have an outstanding game against Hearts of Oak.
Indeed the same question was asked about Karela United and Great Olympics last season but they failed to maintain the momentum and consistent form that are required from title winning teams and King Faisal would be subjected to this same expectation.
It is true that is it early days yet but King Faisal – after wins over Aduana Stars, Ashantigold, WAFA, Kotoko – are to be taken serious as a title contender. That is for sure.
