Panic Stations Or Not For Chiefs?

As reigning PSL champions, Kaizer Chiefs, have not had the best of starts to their 2013/14 campaign, but is it really time for them to start panicking?

Three games into the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season, the Amakhosi have won one, lost one and drawn one, leaving them sat mid-table on the PSL log and five points behind league leaders SuperSport United, who beat them 3-1 on the weekend.

However, Stuart Baxter’s side is practically the same squad of players that went on to win the league and cup double last season, with the addition of Knowledge Musona. So as it stands, are the Chiefs fans overreacting about their poor start to the season?

Many are worried about the lack of depth in the squad as well as the levels of fatigue that many of their first team players are currently dealing with, especially now that the South African transfer window has closed.

Chiefs have been linked with Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Jose Semedo and Ugandan defender Ivan Bukenya, although it remains to be seen if any move will in fact materialise.

However, only three games of the season have been played and Baxter’s side have two opportunities to bounce back on the horizon, against Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic.

If they do secure all six points from the upcoming fixtures, the squad’s confidence will be lifted and the side will undoubtedly look to carry that momentum forward.
