Are Baxter’s Decisions To Chiefs' Detriment?

Our beloved coach, Stuart Baxter, is a trusted man at the club and has a knack of bringing the best out of his players. We can only but think of names such as Tefu Mashamaite, Mandla Masango and Willard Katsande, who were once either rough diamonds or fringe players, and who are now well-rounded footballers because of Baxter’s man-managing skills.

However, with the performance levels of the team dropping in the second half of the season, could that be down to a few inconsistencies in Baxter’s decision making?

For example, the club had signed David Zulu with the hope that he would answer the striking problems in the team. Before his arrival, Zulu was a household name at Chippa United and looked to have arrived at Chiefs at the right time in his career.

Nevertheless, Zulu is yet to have a solid run in the team and he has not been given enough opportunities to gel with his teammates. As a result, the problem is yet to be solved despite Zulu being signed for that purpose.

Also, Mathew Rusike is not known for his goal-scoring prowess but rather for his blistering pace and playmaking abilities down the flank. In spite of this, Baxter opts to utilise the Zimbabwean as a striker with not much effect.

Surely one would think that a top coach would have enough time in these past three seasons to distinguish what a player's best positon is and make use of him in that very position? Baxter, though, has really baffled some of his supporters with regards to player positons and selections this season.

Do you think Baxter’s decision-making could be our downfall?
