All I have to say is that I agree with Dikgang Mabalane in his last week's interview. Soccer doesn't end after Pirates, it ends at Pirates!!!!!! So that means he is finished!

It is unbelievable at how we look to find negatives where there are'nt any,Family bussiness or not Ntate Motaung has always made sure that kaizer chiefs is runned successfully and professionally ,this so called family bussiness went out and bought quality and brought in a coach which almost everyone was labelling him as a failure ,kaizer chiefs explained why they launching a rugby team so as suppoters at was said as it was not one reason ,and how amazing we south africans we like to compare but i hear no one talking about barcelona having a basketball team bt still being arguably the best soccer team in the world.

Muhsin Ertugral keeps putting the budget in front.If Arrows could accomodate players like Nkosi,Mbesuma and Sheppard,they've got the money.They have signed foreing players who come at a price to prove that.Ertugral must tell the truth and say he failed at Arrows,he couldn't use the budget given to him.

What a waste of money….GI English trip was VERY unnecessary. SAFA is crying foul of saying that they are bankrupt hence the U/23 are not active but they have a budget to allow national coach to go to England for an unnecessary trip. Can somebody please convince us why Gordon Ingusand & Serame Letsoaka with some SAFA officials went to England? GI claims that it was to convince the early release of some players for AFCON & to have coffee with players who don’t want to hear anything about Bafana Bafana….was it necessary? The release of players for AFCON…..FIFA rule states that players must be released 14day before the start of the tournament, AFCON starts on the 19th of January….that means that all the players must be with their national teams by the 6th of January. GI said that he will be happy with 50% players by the 1st of January….fact is that its only the English league which doest rest ka festive season….SA has only 2 players (2 doesn’t make 50% of 23) who will be in AFCON team who are based in England & those players will be playing competitive football….was it necessary to travel so far to negotiate for their release? Hell no…..unless the trip was for something else Having coffee with rebels…..that was very unnecessary. Big-up to Surman for telling GI what the whole of SA soccer loving people have been telling him that Surman is too English to don Bafana jearsey. Surman deserves a *bells*. Am happy to hear GI saying that the door is closed on him & I hope that they throw the key in the sea. As for Pienaar, 10yrs or not…..the rebel has retired, let it be. Who was paying for this coffee? Surely we could have used this money for something better, something that will benefit Bafana…..we could have assembled the U/23 boys & give them a friendly game. The likes of Ronwen Williams, Thabiso Nkoane, Kgosi Ntle, Patosi, Dolly & many U/23 boys, deserves to get international experience which cannot be bought over the counter.

Sundowns are not only struggling on the field of play,they're office is underperfoming as well!I was shocked on monday 12-11-12 when I went to their website to check on their latest news only to read about news that was posted two years ago!how ironic!whoever is responsible for updating us fans on the website sould resign!
When i read a Sunday newspaper about an incident which happened on a match between Pirates and $undowns, I said to myself, hey this is a joke, lough, but after some time I realised that this is more serious than a normal joke. Mr Modise asked Senzo Meyiwa to look aside and let the ball hit the net behind him just once. The man was and still is desperate. Maybe Modise must speak to President Motsepe and ask him not to buy more players anymore, but to buy the Absa Premiership trophy itself so that they will never be religated. Champions may never be religated.

Is the sangoma paid by SAFA for his outstanding fees?We might be blaming the coach and players for the loss while the problem is SAFA for not settling with the juju man.
Well done to Sundowns for reaching the TKO final.The team has to win the cup and fight for Top 8 finish.
What a weird player Walcott is, an infuriating mix of the unplayable and the unfathomable! If I was an Arsenal fan, I'd still have some concerns about Monsieur Giroud, He seems like a lovely bloke, but for a striker who describes his head game as one of his strengths, he sure misses a lot of good headed opportunities. He fluffed two in the first half of this game alone. Though the red card removed their vulnerabilities and instigated a wild and eccentric win that go a long way to soothing the mood at the Emirates after a difficult period for Arsène Wenger's team. But would be premature to make eulogies about League triumph thus far cause blue moon rises inevitable in Manchester!

The last time the cup final(Cocs cola cup) was held in Polokwane was between Supersport United and Jomo Cosmos in 2005, and the crowd attendance was decent if not packed to the rafters!If I remember well, it was the decently attended final outside Gauteng in PSL history...correct me if I am wrong! Therefore I appeal to Telkom and PSL to consider Polokwane as host of this Telkom Knockout
(Sundowns/Celtics) final to honour Limpopo fallen soccer heroes.

This Gordon Iguson of theirs is guessing. Who is a better striker between Majoro and Erusmas, recently? How can he play a deffensive midfield when we have players like Modise on the bench? Aren't we have a better deffenders than those overseas bench warmers? If he continues guessing like this, Bafana won'nt pass the first round. Shakes was a good candidate. From

It will a good final.Celtic are going to up set sunflower.Celtic is a gaint killer,the know how to knock the big three.I can't wait for this final.Go siwele go.
I think South Africa has produced one of the world finest talents without academies or systems simple because of the natural talent, passion, mental toughness and desire for success our players had in the past, players who never came through system but raw talent from streets but went to compete with the world finest talents who came through world-class systems in Europe. Recently we have failed to have players competing in that top level simply because the modern game has changed, now it takes more than the natural talent to make it on that level, proper systems or structures need to be set for us to succeed, we are a country with lots of talent but its fading away in streets simply because this talent is not well trained to compete at a high level, think about a Teko Modise who came through a good youth system? Its sad to see a high rate of age-cheating and talent fading away due to social-ills. The more our PSL teams invest on their youth structures, the less money they'll spend on buying players and will make money by selling players to European clubs that they produce from their youth structures. South Africa is the only country who will have a young star presenting Africa in the Nike The Chance World Tour in England, January 2013 and this is a sign that we have talent in SA but we need to get the structure right, proper satellites and scouting policies etc.

A string of bad results have heaped a lot of pressure on Mamelodi Sundows lately. However, their win against SSU was the boast in confidence. Thus, let hope the anticipated Telkom final against Bloemfontein Celtic will go their favour to salvage them from been talked like ANC Mangaung Conference and save their reputation.

After watching a bafana vs Zambia on wednesday i'm conviced that we are far from being ready for afcon 2013. If we can go to the knockout stages it will be by virture of luck. Otherwise Gud luck to the boys and Gordon with that short sighted mandate from South afrcan fools association.
What a moral booster for Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of their game against Kaizer Chiefs.The game was not the true reflection of what we're used to seeing in the Pretoria derby.There's now hope in the Sundowns camp.The supporters must be starting to doubt their actions
If what i witnessed on wednesday is wht we will see next year at the afcon..then i can safely say we will be knocked out earlier than expectad. Nunes is nt beter thn punch. Kagiso or mr Furman one must b sacrificed for YEye..mr Gordan stop ur favouritism or ull follow pitso..Mark my words
I congratulate celtics for going to the final of telkom knockout cup.I have confidence that celtics will win it especially after they knock out the so called x which is pirates.Sundowns must fire the stupid coach before its too late.From

Kennedy Mwennes performances for FSS must be probed bcos he gives his all for Zambia nd jus makes silly school boy errors wen on duty for FSS.
Its really disturbing&painful when our national team playing like this especially when we about to host AFCON and qualify for World cup 2014 but its seems like a book that was written by Nelson Mandela ''Long walk to freedom'' i mean like gordon said there still a lot to be done,my concern is how long will it take we are less than 2 month now to start with AFCON,but our coach is still trying combination untill when?i wonder who cursed our national team really it must be a young sangoma.

Telko final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloefontein Celtic should be the most intertaining final of this year.Both teams showed a lot of character and dedication to reach the finals.I can't wait for the 1st of December 2012 to witness the Chloorkop giants lifting that trophy,spaza teams like Celtic are just a walk in a park for the Yellow Samba boys.Eleazer Rodgers cracker strike made Chips fans to be Jealous,agg shame ave benomona abantu bamaZebras.Teko Modise will be the 1st to put his finger prints kula komityi.

Am sho nw wi knw where we are in terms of preparations for the afcon,gordon stop complaining abt time he took the job knowing he do nt have much time
History is about to be made in the Psl. Mamelodi sundowns are in the finals of the Tko, but then again relegation is staring right at them. Now all along i've heard people say that money can't buy happiness and judging by sundowns position i have no choice but to agree with the say.

Finally, I don't have much words for you my coach because I believe on your potential to take this team to AFCON successfully and beyond. I hope you're going to close your ears to this chorus of "Bucs midfield" being included, coach a good teacher is better than two books there4 never allow interference to interfere with your job - pick a player on merit.

Is it the begining of EPL champs Man City and the sinking of former EPL champs Man United. If Man City are serious about retaining their title, that is now. As Chelsea droping points as well that means champions are in good position but for them to drop what they have.

Honestly Downs is not a bad team and should they win two or three consecutively game they wi be untouchable. They defended successfully against Supersport and created some real changes. I rate them as title contenders mark my words.

I wonder where does our national team Bafana Bafana going. Gordon selects the best quality players, but his favourtism will kill our National team.
*1st. Bongani Khumalo doesn't play regular at England. Then he romeved Tshabalala from captaincy, as a 2nd fiddle to Pienaar and give it to Khumalo.
*2nd. Mathoho was regular, even before he join amakhosi. Bt since joining amakhosi, he is relegated to bench while hes playing regular at his team and hes playing well.
*3rd. He prefer a weak midfilder of Chabangu and Furman, while Yes and Dikgacoi can do the best. Wer is Khuboni? The thing that he coached Chabangu at Swallows, doesn't mean he is better than Yeye. Also Myeni is a weakest link, we have Delron and Tshabalala, the guys who can be dangerous to the oppositions.
*4th. Nunes is best in dead balls, bt hes not that strong like Masenamela.
-Mr Gordon, please be equal to playerz. We are sick of your favourtizm. We need to win AFCON next year. Make a better strong squad! We need Manqele and Mbuyane.

A draw against fc cape town (796), another draw against fc ak and a win over united fc surely gives polokwane city 5 points.

I wanted to pen something about Bafana (as flattened by Mam’Rubi) and the subsequent ugly bus incident, but I thought this would taint my reputation as a “resident” Bishop.
So safer to reflect on the good news for SAFA’s Robin Peterson – amid rumours (followed by mandatory denials) that he’ll be removed – there was a clear correction of the miscommunication that led to this belief. eNCA (or something nca like that) news reported yesterday (7h30pm sports bulletin) that it is Robin Van Persie who may be fired! I wonder why ManClattenburg United would want to do that! Could it be because (unlike Hernandez and Rooney) he scores clear cut goals and gets clear penalties…?!
Watch this space!
Rathebe, C. (Chris)
It'sn't of my accord to see Gordon dethroned before AFCON,But on wensday I was spoiled by his selection,why he doesn't want to choose Calvin Kadi and chapman as our striker,I feel certain that he's learned the lesson;I'm chiefs fan but I choose calvin and chapman though their team is disrespected.
Daniel Mutsusi Leeudoorn Mine
After the joke that we saw yesterday by Bafana, my advice to GI if he still wants to have his Bafana job after the AFCON, is for him to get an experience assistant coach now. He must get somebody who have great track record. Stats shows that GI has always had good assistants @ club-level hence his achievements but that’s what i don’t see in Serame. The likes Farook Khan, Neil Tovey are available. That’s my advice
We succumbed you an unassailable support because we trusted you to have potential to redeem Bafana's reputation and restore the pride of the nation. But current mediocre performance has deprived an empathy(enthusiastic) the fraternity possesses because we understood time and tide wait for no man, no time like the present to make it right. The time is against us to 'build' the team or still searching for right combination. We supported you to have robust squad that would give us hope ahead AFCON tournament but apparent predicament pose contradiction to the nation. I have no choice coach but to give you ultimatum, if you aren't going all the way, why go at all? because Bafana debacle would perceive the team plummet from FIFA ranking and their reputation been tarnish, embarrassment. Coach, you must restore team authorities with consistent NOT mediocrity.
reputation vs ambition Coach, I will not dwell too much on your selection cause its ambition is clear to accomplish enormous. But, I'd like to warn you about unforeseen disastrous the team is heading too. You seem focusing to much on player's reputation despite player's poor performance, previously - our backline vulnerability had exposed many-time because you rated Khumalo highly more than any other defender on our shore though the country possesses enormous backs, talents. Often, one scabbed sheep mars the whole flock that's my fear on our glory persuasion ahead crucial AFCON tournament. We need to keep in mind that today's football is about what you can offer(that's ambition) BUT not what you had(reputation). Final words: Finally, I don't have much words for you my coach because I believe on your potential to take this team to AFCON successfully and beyond. I hope you're going to close your ears to this chorus of "Bucs midfield" being included, coach a good teacher is better than two books there4 never allow interference to interfere with your job - pick a player on merit.

Gordon is done and now is time to call doctor steve to make the players come alive and start winning game we cant go on loosing and say he is still building wit no progress.

Stars v Celtic game, was a real cracker. If more of our teams can be committed like that, our stadiums can get a higher volume of attendance. By eliminating Buc's, Celtic became champions of the Telkom Cup in the waiting. With all due respect to Downs, sorry they won't stop Celtic. To be the champs beat the champs. Beware of complacency though Celtic. Ghosts never die.

I'm a Khosi fanetic but I'm praying and wishing for Downs to win this one for their President(Mr Motsepe),I Mean this guy has done a lot for his employees. How can I forget Teko whose been consistently playing his heart out for Downs,He has been eluded by luck when it comes to trophies and cups.

Why is it that when two teams from the same Province outside Gauteng meet, it’s called a derby? Are they not supposed to be from the same town/city for it to be a derby? To make it worse, when teams like O/P or K/C meet Wits for instance, it’s not dubbed a derby, yet they are from JHB. Any way, am I the only one who noticed the serious injuries suffered by opposing players against Celtic in the TKO? Two O/P players sustained serious injuries from what prima facie appears to be minor incidents. Yesterday Mashego from F/S suffered the same feat. I grew up being told that if your opponent uses Muti and you are not protected, you are likely to get injuries. I’m not accusing Celtics of using muti, but look at Mahamotsa, Jali and Mashego’s situations and Celtic is going to the final. Good luck to both finalists, they deserve to be there. UP THE BUCS
It's gonna be a walk in a park for the Chloorkop giants all the way to lift that trophy.Teko Modise will be the 1st to put his finger prints on that trophy!!

Congratulations are in order to both Celtic and Sundowns for reaching Telkom final, yes it was very clear that a team that can beat Pirates will have to reach the final and I wish Celtic can win it but I’m asking myself this question about Sundowns. What will happen to Sundowns if they win Telkom but, only to be relegated at the end of the season?
I just want to take this moment an commend all the teams that are unbeaten in all Leagues around the globe. Credit should go to the technical team of Barcelona, Manchester City and Kaizer Chiefs here in South Africa, they are all unbeaten and ironically all the three teams are currently leading the log on their respective teams. Let's give credit where it's due and maybe even the other teams may strive for similar achievement and thus increases the standard of our football.

Wow what a buzzing derby between FFS and Celtic! I thought Stars will outsmart Celtic. Now i believe Downs will put smile on their supporter's smile. I'm a Bucs though.
Downs win against ss untd will go a very long way in boosting their confidence.they played and fought like sundowns we all cherish.their movement especially when going forward was spot on.Celtic will find it very difficult to contain them in the TKO final.Ka Boyellow Bafana Ba Style.
There are no small teams in the English Premier League which is why I love it. The big teams received a huge wake up call. It’s going to be a close race again this season.

My advice to Gordon is not to play both Furman and KG at the same time especially when we’re playing in our backyard b’coz they are not offensive at all. Put Furman behind Yeye and then u’ll see offensive, quick interchanging passes. I remember ur reason 4 leaving Teko on ur 1st selection was based on the fact that u had Pienaar and Serero on that position so the same has to apply to either KG or Furman, one has 2 sit on the bench. Playing in England mustn’t be a ticket to starting 11. Have faith in our PSL strength, Zambia conquered Africa with our home cooked meal (PSL and former PSL players). U are very thin in front of goal but u still side-line Calvin Kadi and Majoro who are on fire as well. Lastly, avoid taking orders from agents b’coz they will fail u 4 their benefits.
It's a blessing in disguise for Sundowns coach after wining against SSU,but clayton Daniels and Nyandoro will not stop Celtics strikers Bacela and Lerato Manzini,Credit must go to Isaacs who denied Dove Wome chance to equalize within last seconds.
