I Predict A 2-0 Win For Amakhosi
Hey there, football family
On the upcoming Soweto Derby
As we all know, it’s this weekend, the biggest game in South African football, the Soweto derby. This is the centre of the universe as far as South African football is concerned. ‘Friendly game’ is just the term attached to it, but everything is at stake when these two giants cross swords. There are just no friendly games between the two teams. Tickets were sold out three weeks prior to the date of the game. That just shows how big this game is. One thing I’m hoping for, though, is that it is the supporters who bought tickets that will attend the game, not the hooligans that will go to the stadium to sell them for triple the amount that they bought them for. I predict a 2-0 win for Amakhosi in this one.
On the signings made by teams so far
There’s not much happening in the transfer window, especially for the two Soweto giants. They ended last season empty-handed, so one would expect them to go mad in this window. Orlando Pirates have made three great signings though in Thamsanqa Sangweni, Wayne Sandilands and Christian Obiozor. We (Kaizer Chiefs) have some exciting youngsters, though, and I believe that our striker, Gustavo Paez, will work very well with these young boys. I hope that our coach will have faith in these young stars. I believe that, given a chance, they will do wonders this coming season.
On the upcoming season (2017/18)
The 2017/18 league title is going to be the most difficult one to win for any team. Teams like Chiefs and Pirates will fight tooth and nail, trying to salvage some pride and make their supporters happy after they both had a dismal 2016/17 season. They will definitely want to do better than the last campaign. You heard what Siphiwe Tshabalala said after he won the Goal of the Season award, that he was not happy that the team didn’t win any silverware and that they will work extra hard next season to fix that. I think we need one more striker though.
On Bafana Bafana’s CHAN qualifiers
You know what… our coach Stuart Baxter is amazing. This guy is just our Mr Magic. He has selected young boys like Ryan Moon and others and, just when everybody was starting to doubt his selection, the boys stunned us all. The whole nation now sees that there’s light at the end of the tunnel and who else can lead us to that light other than the amazing Stuart Baxter, our Mr Magic…
