Wa All Stars’s stock has fallen significantly since last season. The Northern Blues are having a torrid campaign in the Ghanaian topflight this term. 
 
They sit bottom of the sixteen team league with 7 points in as many as 13 games played. They’ve won one, drawn four and lost eight.
 
This unpleasant situation has stirred the spirit of the supporters who are looking for answers to the downward spiral of their beloved club. The club has lost its spark and shine that made it a force to reckon with seasons ago.
 
Quite paradoxically, they were Ghanaian champions two seasons ago- becoming the first club from Northern Ghana to achieve this feat. Nothing to seem to be working for this Wa All Stars side; no one can really tell what the problem is but the reality is Wa All Stars are having a tumultuous campaign which could culminate in them been relegated at the end of the season.
 
Over the past year, the club has had about four managers at the helm. 
Enos Adepa, who spearheaded the club’s history making feat two seasons ago was axed in the course of last season for non performance and was replaced by his assistant, Alhaji Mumuni Sokpari who guided the club to the semi finals of the FA cup and narrowly beat the drop to retain the club’s topflight status. He started this season with the club but was sacked for continuous unconvincing performances.
 
Former Berekum Chelsea gaffer, Sarfo Castro took charge and also left the position vacant after a few games at the club. Goalkeepers trainer, Issah Najahu is at the helm now but nothing has changed- the problem persists and seems to be escalating by day.
 
Is it about the unavailability of talent in their fold? Certainly not, because this All Stars side is never bereft of talent. 
 
They may rue the absence of Ismail Abdul Ganiyu, Hafiz Adams, Richard Ofori, Saddick Alhassan et al but in truth, this is a club that has Samuel Atta Mensah, who was featured by the Guardian newspaper in their sixty wonderkids in the world, 2016. David Abagna Sandan who was one of the most talked about players in the league is still around. 
 
What about the captain of the Black Satellites, Ishaku Konda? Jeffery de Gorl, Moses Nyarko just to mention but a few are still around champion the good cause of the club but….
 
With the first half of the season almost coming to an end, It is time for the upper echelons of the club to strategically get the club back to winning ways and bring smiles back to the faces of their followers if they still harbor thoughts of playing in the country’s topflight league in the years ahead. Hope is not lost but surely diminishing.
