2016/17 – Entertaining, Yet Difficult

Botha Msila – SLSC Committee Member

On the PSL title race

It’s that time of the season where men are separated from boys. It’s that time when the PSL season is so enthralling. It’s that time when merely good coaches and ‘the real deal’ are separated. The race is still on and it’s intense between these four teams: Mamelodi Sundowns, Cape Town City, Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs. These teams are giving it their best shot. I think a team that has the best coach and the support from management will land the title. Good luck to the four of them. May the best team win.

On the relegation battle

Like with the race for the title, the relegation battle is also stressful to us supporters. My team, Bloemfontein Celtic, is also in the pot for relegation. You will have noticed that Chippa United have put their coach on special leave, while Highlands Park have parted ways with their coach. That shows you that club bosses are also not happy to be in the relegation zone. Teams like Highlands Park, Baroka FC, Free State Stars and my team are all in the same pot. Times are tough. Rest assured, it’s going to be difficult for all of us. There’s no room for defeats, otherwise you’re out. This season is a very entertaining, yet very difficult one.

On the Nedbank Cup semi-finals

The semi-finals will be entertaining. Orlando Pirates are playing a Golden Arrows side that is stress-free in the sense that they are not in danger of losing their top eight spot. They will fully focus on the semi-final, while Pirates will have one eye on consolidating their top eight spot. Their focus will be a bit divided. The second one is SuperSport United against Chippa United. SuperSport will be the ones in a better space in this one in terms of focus. They want to end the season with some silverware and are within a chance to defend the cup should they win this semi-final, while also hanging onto their outside chance in the league title. It’s going to be interesting to know who will meet who in Durban in the final.

On Celtic’s season

This has been the most difficult season for my team. We lost our leader, our father, Ntate Petrus Molemela and the team was nearly sold to strangers. It was just not a good season for us. As supporters, we know that it is difficult out there on the field of play, but we urge our players to fight for the team.

Till we talk again
