Jaakkola v Khune: Who'll Win?

As loyal readers and fans of Soccer Laduma, we've surely all been following the Team of the Season voting both in the paper and on the website.

As a passionate Ajax Cape Town fans, it came as exciting news to see Itumeleng Khune being so closely followed in the voting by our very own number one, Anssi Jaakkola.

Wow, what company our Finnish keeper is in!

Khune plays for a team that are number one in the PSL. He is the leader and inspiration of Chiefs' defence and he's the closest thing to a world class player Mzansi has got. Virtually every week he produces performances from the top drawer.

In other words, the pressure he's under is immense and yet he still delivers to a very high level. His recent absence due to injury exposed some of the failings Chiefs have when he's not there - the back four just aren't the same.

This is why Jaakkola staying with him in the voting stakes for Keeper of the Season stands out - his obvious potential is there for all to see. He has made great saves for us and is a very good reader of the game. 

Behind what has behind our very shakey back four, our 27-year-old has stood out like a shining beacon of light.

So, Ajax fans, let's keep voting and make sure 'Itu' gets a real run for his money. It's because the proof is obvious - Jaakkola v Khune - who'll win? Without a shadow of a doubt, we back Anssi all the way!

Ahoo, ahoo, ahoo!
