Pirates pitch up late at the races
What a difference a month makes. It was 21 December, on the dot, when Orlando Pirates beat Black Leopards 3-1 in their first match under Josef Zinnbauer, with Rulani Mokwena pulling what looked, frankly, like a massive sulk on the bench, his dismal stint in charge at the Buccaneers having come to an abrupt end.

Chiefs’ biggest asset is versatility
Kaizer Chiefs, even though they lost to SuperSport, in their opening match of 2020, had plenty of opportunities, hitting the post three times, they showed the same resilience and fight they have shown all season and their wasn’t too much reason to be concerned.

The worry about Kaizer Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs have been excellent in their Absa Premiership campaign this far. They have proved to be clinical and resilient.

Mwape Musonda became the first man in seven seasons to break 15 goals in the Absa Premiership when his 16 strikes earned him the Golden Boot at the end of the 2018/19 season.

I’ve always known that acquiring the services of Gabadinho Mhango will be key for Orlando Pirates and their previous game against Polokwane City proved it.

Ernst Middendorp has always said he has enough experience in the game to know how to deal with situations and I think the situation his team are in currently will be a real test of not only his capabilities but his character as well.

Never-mind the result of the final game last year, the next couple of weeks will give us light on whether Josef Zinnbauer is the right man for the job at Orlando Pirates or not.

It seems Kaizer Chiefs’ early lead in the Absa Premiership is just what the doctor ordered for us as supporters, but it might come back to haunt the Amakhosi faithful in the end.

local soccer OPINION: Sirino is the best player in the PSL, but his temper, jissus…

Right now there is no better player in the whole of the Premier Soccer League than Gaston Sirino but the Mamelodi Sundowns star’s short fuse will sadly eclipse his great talent and people will see him as a bad-tempered player rather than the star that he is.

local soccer Who could Kaizer Chiefs look to sign in January?

With the January transfer window fast approaching, there is little, on the face of it, for Kaizer Chiefs to do to improve a squad that is already nine points clear at the top of the Absa Premiership.

I thought Mamelodi Sundowns started slowly in the Telkom Knockout final, just as they had done in their midweek Absa Premiership win over Mamelodi Sundowns. At half time, they changed it a bit, and you saw a different side, that ultimately won the cup.

With all due respect to Kaizer Chiefs, who have started this season like a tornado, threatening to rip through the rest of the country and seal the Absa Premiership title in record time, as a year, 2019 now officially belongs to Mamelodi Sundowns, following their success in Saturday’s Telkom Knockout final.
