Can Pitso And Downs Afford A Trophyless Season?

Coach Pitso Mosimane has lifted the spirits of the Mamelodi Sundowns supporters, as they were trophy deprived for many years until last season’s league-winning campaign.

As the champions of South African football, there is a feel of optimism and belief amongst the players and coaching staff. Every time they set foot on the pitch, opponents naturally tag them as the team to beat because of our champion status.

With that said, will a trophyless season be accepted amongst the Masandawana faithful? Yes … and I also feel that we can afford to have one. Here’s why.

Kaizer Chiefs look to have accumulated enough points in the first half of the season and helped themselves in providing leverage should they drop points. Many of the fans have made peace with that, as they hope for the best in the title run-in period.

The league season may not be over, but I think our sluggish start at the beginning of the season is already erased in the fans' memories. Also, the fans are still raving about being champions, and after winning the trophy following such a long dry spell, one trophyless season will not be a major concern.

For the club though, they could look at the possible trophyless season as a lesson. In football, anything can happen and nothing is ever guaranteed until the final whistle. We can only but learn from the fact that it is difficult to retain silverware in the Premier Soccer League.

We can afford to have a trophyless season but we have to learn from it as well, do you agree fans?
