"How Many Times Have Chiefs Taken The Lead Yet Failed To Win?" - Reader's Voice

After a loss to Cape Town City and a draw with SuperSport United, Kaizer Chiefs' league title hopes are as good as over.

Chiefs will need teams like Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City to drop points for them to have any hopes of lifting the title.

Chiefs have been very unlucky, perhaps too unlucky in their quest for the title. They have conceded soft goals in the absence of Lorenzo Gordinho and they have also conceded last minute goals against City and SuperSport. This suggests a lack of concentration and perhaps the coaches' inability to protect a lead when Chiefs are ahead in games. Steve Komphela's selections and tactics have been questionable, because how many times have chiefs taken the lead in games yet fail to win the match?

Stuart Baxter would win games by small margins because he was not afraid to play with six defenders after going ahead in games.

Chiefs should seriously look at signing a left-back, a central midfielder and a prolific centre-forward. Players such as Tsepo Masilela and Bernard Parker are showing signs of slowing down and are in the twilight of their careers. Players like Patrick Phungwayo, Jabulani Shongwe, Buyani Sali, Musa Nyatama, Thamsanqa Sangweni, Kudakwashe Mahachi and Dino Ndlovu should be considered for the gold and black of Chiefs.

And perhaps the biggest change that should happen is appointing a new coach.
