Just a couple of months ago, Thamsanqa Gabuza was an unwanted man spending a lot of time on the sidelines at Orlando Pirates and not many people cared if he was playing or not.
It’s pretty amazing how football sometimes unfolds...
South African players often take for granted the privilege that comes with choosing football as a career and focusing on the sport from an early age to adulthood.
Cavin Johnson is lucky that he is working for AmaZulu and not under the employ of the trigger-happy Siviwe “Chippa” Mpengesi at Chippa United.
The Khama Billiat transfer speculation has become an elephant in the room for Kaizer Chiefs, with the matter refusing to die down no matter how hard the club’s media team have tried to put it to rest.
Kaizer Chiefs fans might need to wait until next season for their beloved side to claim silverware in the league, but there is hope for the Glamour Boys at last.
I guess it was asking for trouble a little, with the benefit of hindsight, when Orlando Pirates produced a new kit this season, that gave a nod to the team that won the 1995 Caf Champions League.
I think sometimes some people tend to take football fans for granted and never really consider their feelings when they take some decisions.
The main reason why Amakhosi and the Sea Robbers seem like they have lost their royalty status is Mamelodi Sundowns.
It is a pity that the coach is always the first to get blamed when things don’t work out the way the supporters wish.
The black-and-white side from Soweto have had a weekend to forget, but there may be a bigger picture that should concern us all.
If you follow South African politics keenly you might have heard comrades from the ruling party singing a song with the lyrics “phakama Ramaphosa, ixesha lisondele,” meaning rise up, the time has arrived.
Kaizer Chiefs fans have been thoroughly embarrassed in the last four years and it is clear that they will accept nothing less than cup this season. Finishing a season without silverware used to be something unheard of at Amakhosi who built their brand around being the trophy kings.
You still can’t predict who will be crowned league champions at the end of each season, but one thing is almost certain, coach Benni McCarthy will have a go at his opponents and threaten to turn the technical area into a boxing ring, taking all the attention away from the dual on the field.
One of the most heartening aspects of Kaizer Chiefs’ start to the season, which has begun with two wins, if not exactly convincing victories, is the return to form of Erick Mathoho.
It is saddening and sickening to even begin to imagine that Mamelodi Sundowns could part ways with a hard working coach such as Pitso Mosimane because of matters of the boardroom instead of what he does on the pitch.
