@setlaboswana Pardon me for placing myself at the same level and category as yourself. I don't know how may times I must keep on reminding myself never to argue with a certain category of people

@DubulaMkhaba, what an insult! I don't think you understood my point. All I am saying is that Mathoho has been tall for the past two seasons, but fau remained useless.

@setlaboswana I thought you had got the idea when Lulikho enlightened you that Chiefs fortunes don't depend on your lame wishes for good things to happen for them. As for your persistent insistence on Mathoho's height and its contribution to Chiefs win against Baroka, you make me really wonder if there is any grey matter in that thick skull of yours or just a vacuum.

@Ntsika239, I don't believe what I am reading from your written respond to my comment. Are you really telling me Mathoho 's height is fau 'strength? You expect to win championships with what you call strength. By the way, where was that strength for the past two seasons? Was Mathoho short for the past two seasons and only became a little bit taller from fau 's two previous fixtures? Madoda!!! I am give up...

@generalmj, definitely not, what I am illustrating is that Prof Komphela have exhausted his tactics, he is now relying on Mathoho 's height.

@setlaboswana if Mathoho was short? That's a lame excuse. He is not and what are you going to do about it? Tell his parents to reverse his birth?

@lulikho, no...no...no...I don't see what you referred to as "lame wishes" here. If Mathoho was short, fau would not have scored last night.
