Huge dilemma facing the PSL
These are strange times indeed, strange and terrifying times. The South African Football Association and Premier Soccer League yesterday did the only thing they really could, in suspending all football activity for the time being.

Smelling gold and black blood

Whisper this quietly, for the winds of change blow so often in the Absa Premiership, but if Mamelodi Sundowns win at Stellenbosch FC tomorrow evening, are Pitso Mosimane’s men not suddenly favourites to lift the Absa Premiership title for a third season in a row?

I can’t remember the last time Orlando Pirates fans lost the Soweto derby to Kaizer Chiefs and they seemed to be.. for a lack of a better okay with it!

Chiefs went into the game with a solid gameplan. Their plan was more conservative, to deal with Pirates’ threat going forward, and they did that with great aplomb.

What happened to Orlando Pirates last weekend was bad, really bad. It was like tripping and falling and hurting yourself right in front of the enemy you left home to go kill.

I did mention a couple of weeks ago in this very editorial that I felt Daniel Akpeyi had to keep his place in the Kaizer Chiefs team for the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates.

The conditions for both Kaizer Chiefs and Highlands Park at Makhulong Stadium on Saturday in the Nedbank Cup were terrible, but I think they suited Highlands Park a little bit more.

There has, almost certainly, in recent times not been a Soweto derby quite as pivotal in the Absa Premiership title race as Saturday’s mouthwatering clash between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium.

You just got to love football – things can just change at an instant. After leading the log with more than 10 points a couple of weeks ago, Kaizer Chiefs are now four points ahead in this heated Absa Premiership title race where Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are just waiting for Amakhosi to make another slip.

Maybe Chiefs are a touch predictable

local soccer Maybe Chiefs are a touch predictable

I actually think Kaizer Chiefs gave one of their better performances of the season against Maritzburg United on Saturday, even though they lost. In terms of statistics, game dominance, entry into the final third, and attempts on target, Chiefs were the better team.

There has been an indignant roar from many in the Amakhosi faithful, ever since Daniel Akpeyi’s blunder assisted Maritzburg United in taking the lead against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, the Team of Choice ultimately inflicting upon the league leaders only their third Absa Premiership defeat of the season.

The romance of football is always at it’s most glorious in the Nedbank Cup, where a giant-killing is always on the cards, as TS Galaxy proved in the most incredible of moments on 18 May of last year, when they stunned Kaizer Chiefs by a single goal to nil at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
