It's No Longer Pouring At Chiefs... It's Flooding

Kaizer Chiefs' woes in the PSL continued on Tuesday evening at FNB Stadium, as Jomo Cosmos added salt to the wounds by defeating the Glamour Boys.

Ezenkosi edged Amakhosi 1-0 to further fuel Chiefs faithfuls' fury over coach, Steve Komphela, who the fans have turned against in the past few days. The defeat saw Chiefs lose four consecutive games without scoring a single goal, while conceding six in the process.

The Naturena-based outfit released a statement on Monday, apologising to their fans for the club's recent poor run. They assured the fans that all is not lost, and that they are doing everything to get the team back to winning ways. Then Jomo stunned everyone. If Chiefs had any chance of showing their supporters that they are truly sorry, losing to Cosmos didn't help matters at all.

A win over Ezenkosi would have given them a breath of fresh air, and earn some forgiveness from their fans. But the fact that just a few days ago Cosmos lost to Orlando Pirates 5-0 didn't do any good to the Amakhosi faithfuls. Surely Chiefs were expected to easily beat Cosmos after that demoralizing loss to Pirates.

But things seem to be spiraling downwards at Naturena. There's no sign of improvement, or a sign that things will be alright any time soon. The belief that Chiefs could catchup with Mamelodi Sundowns and defend their title is now out the window. With things continuing to get worse, it's more likely that the mighty Amakhosi will get an early shower from the CAF Champions League. The chances of Steve Komphela being rallied supported by Khosination suffered a huge blow.

I doubt that the Motaungs will calm the waters. Chiefs fans' patience with Komphela has been slowly, but surely, wearing off lately, and Tuesday's result is too much to bear for Khosination. We were all thinking that if it's not raining at Naturena, it's pouring. But if what happened last night at FNB is anything to go by, it's actually flooding at Chiefs.
