The two Soweto giants seem to be losing their spark, when comparing the derbies played from 2006 until today. It took 10 years for Pirates and Chiefs to prove that, with lots of draws being the result of the weakness of our derby.
The last meeting between the two side saw Pirates walk past Chiefs 2-0 in the Nedbank cup. When I sit down and think of those playing days of Jerry Sikhosana, Doctor Khumalo and the others I find it hard to understand why we are experiencing a derby like this in the country.
Lot of defending is favoured over attack. Even in the preseason games, like Black Label Cup, where they must create joy for the fans, we see penalties. Our best derby in the country needs to change.
