Despite walloping Botswana by 4-1,Bafana Bafana failed to make it to the la= st round of the world cup qualifiers for Brazil 2014.Yes,the damage was alr= eady done when Gordon Igesund took over the coaching reigns but the man has= n't changed or achieved anything with Bafana Bafana either.He was mandated = to reach the last 4 of the afcon(which was not too much to ask on home soil & to qualify us for the world cup in Brazil.He failed on both.So in my op= inion,he's no better than his predecessor,Pitso Mosimane. If we are serious about qualifying & doing well in the Russia 2018 world cu= p,we need an overall change in our football~new players,new coach & a compl= etely new SAFA leadership(not rotation of the same faces).The current crop = of players as well as their uncles(SAFA hierarchy)have failed the national = not once,but on several occasions since the confed cup in 2009.They must al= l be given a boot.It's a pity our u-23 team remains inactive as well,otherw= ise I'd suggest we convert them into our senior national team with immediat= e effect.We need a fresh start as soon as yesterday or else we will kiss Ru= ssia 2018 good bye as well.=20

Why would Safa consider meeting the Psl about taking a longer break rather than moving the tournament.Holding tournaments in January will always clash with the other major leagues.We'll always have the problem of fielding a team without most of our European based players.Trying to stay  unique and different to other League while putting our players at an disadvantge with country versus club.I guest it's time we not only make decisions for ourselves but for developments sake.The Chan and Afcon will never have European followers because their leagues are running and our players losing the places in the starting line-up. Welsh football is on the rise with two teams being promoted.They're players are also putting their hands up to be noticed.

Manchester United will never be the same again. Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired as the Coach,it is going to be difficult for the boys to bounce back. It is going to take years for David Moyes to re-arrange the whole team or for the boys to understand his tactics. He should have brought at least one player from Everton,player like Steven Pienaar to come and show how Moyes coaching tactics is being done in the field of play.

As we were watching bafana on tv an update came that ethiopia, has equalised and they overtook CAR. So thanks to you. The 2014 world cup won't be interesting because you. You scored an own goal. Now your beautiful free kick meant nothing. Thank you very much for that own goal. We are not going to brazil. In future whenever defending comes to your mind just don't! A fan khosi4life.

Amakhosi coach Baxter must take a leaf out of Gordon's book when approching the next derby,if he want to advance to the finals.Baxter must attack Pirates from the dressing room.Baxter must starts with Musona,Parker and Majoro upfront,by doing so the goal will fall like tsunami.

Until we value our locally based players and our league, its is not going to be the last disappointment that we as South Africans are going to come across. This Serero issue illustrated what a lot of us have always suspected, that the commitment of some of overseas based players has to be questioned. For Bafana to move up the rankings and to qualify for international competition, we first need to beat our African counter parts. Do we really need those overseas players? Most of which play in lower leagues. Orlando Pirates, with all South African players are conquering the continent, which just shows that there is nothing inferior about us, only that we lack faith in what we have here back at home. Going into the future, let's trust our South African based players, build a team from what is working here week in and week out. When we start doing that, we will breeze past African opposition and actually learn how good we actually are against the best in the world.

Gordon Igesund needs to retract his words that he uttered just before the start of 2013 AFCON that Thulani Serero is our own Messi,maybe this is the reason the boy is bigheaded he thinks he's King Lionel Messi. He's much too young for his bahaviour,I didn't expect that from him.

Going into Congo Brazaville will be a tough battle we have ever encountered. Only a win will settle us,we need soldiers to fight not being pushed over around. RDS must prepare his players mentally and physically in order for us to pull through to the next round. With the fighting spirit we showed against Zamalek in the 2nd half,iam certain we can come out in Brazzaville alive with maximum points. In Bacela we trust,black is back.

Bafana bafana will never ceased to amazed me, they failed the country dismally but Gordon will remain the best coach in Mzansi. Now we need the new SAFA administration to annex and the coach keep his job. Better resources, financial backing & good infrastructure but we can’t qualify for the world cup, unlike Ethiopia . Government intervention nor sponsors need to pull out because as a country we’re not going anywhere with SAFA, SARU administration is better than SAFA. Mr Rasmatazz (Minister) do something before it’s too late.
