Arrows To Analyse Chiefs Without Komphela?

Arrows Ready To Face Chiefs To Fight Relegation Danger

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 24, 2018 03:42 PM

Golden Arrows have emphasised getting all three points against Kaizer Chiefs in their fight against relegation.

Arrows are in the relegation dogfight with the likes of Polokwane City, SuperSport United, Ajax Cape Town and Platinum Stars. Adding three points to their tally tonight would move the KwaZulu-Natal team closer to inside the top eight bracket on the log.

Abafana Bes’thende’s assistant coach, Mandla Ncikazi, says everyone in the team is prepared to give a fight against Amakhosi tonight.

“I think it’s the best mood ever I have seen in a while amongst the team. (We are) not excited, but cautious, controlled, fired and prepared to fight for the team. That’s all you want before a crucial match. Things look positive with the way they are right now,” Ncikazi told the Siya crew.

“First things first, avoid relegation first and then fight for the top eight. We are positive that we have a chance of getting three points with the way things are right now. Don’t even look which team you are playing against, as long as it is in the PSL just go out there to fight for the points,” added Ncikazi.

Following the resignation of Steve Komphela as the Chiefs’ head coach on the weekend, Patrick Mabedi and Arthur Zwane have been tasked with leading the team going forward.

“It’s even more difficult because you don’t know if Mabedi and Arthur Zwane will go for the three centre backs, which is what they (Chiefs) have been doing, and you don’t know if they will change personnel. Remember that the players that have not been given a chance (to play) see an opportunity now. They will play to impress. Either the whole team will want to redeem themselves and to please the supporters, you’ll never know, it’s very difficult. But we have our own race to run and irrespective of what happens we will fight for the badge of the club,” concluded Ncikazi.

The match between Arrows and Chiefs get underway at the Princess Magogo Stadium from 19h30.

@Thautha, so what is your take on players who missed clear goal scoring opportunities...? Because as far as I was watching the game both teams had chances to score but the difference was the other players took their chances... I don't say Steve was a right coach or not I'm asking about players responsibilities

Sorry to bust you bubble Sir,Steve is just not a coach to coach a team of Chiefs caliber. Period. You also fail to mention that Stars players are average players and that is also correct for Maritzburg. The biggest thing with this 2 teams is their coaches and that is they know their game and Mr Khompela has no idea of how to play a team game and that was evident throughout the entire 3 season he has spent at Chiefs. Doggmoore my brother truth need to be told and that is Mr Khompela lacks tactical acumen to coach teams of stature of Chiefs who always wins trophies and not fight off relegation. Period.

In my honest view. I truly think that cards dealt by supporters to Komphela were not fair. I understand that results were not forthcoming but I think under normal circumstances he did fairly well with the resources at his disposal. My reasoning is based on this few factors: 1. The average age of players at Chiefs has dropped drastically and youngsters were now given a bit important role to play and we all know that it will somehow take a bit of time for results to be forthcoming 2. Some of the players brought in were still new to the club and any soccer player will tell you that it takes a little bit of time to adapt to your new surroundings. Case in point being Evan Rusike at Supersport and The best wing Player at Pirates and Sundowns striker whom I love very much - Thembinkosi Lorch and Percy Tau who were loaned out to better themselves. These two Teams are reaping the rewards in this regard while in Rusike' case we have almost forgotten that he was the best scorer just before joining Supersport and because he is struggling now that does not make him a worse player overnight. 3. Kaizer Chiefs supporters indeed have a minute noodle mentality in that they want instant results and this contributed negatively to Komphela preventing him to juggle and experiment his playing squad because he was always under pressure to win the games and therefore couldn't have enough time to experiment. 4. In a game of football, the are certainly three outcomes expected in a game, that being a win, a draw and a lose and with Kaizer Chiefs supporters all that they ever thought about is a win forgetting that the results can be either of the three mentioned and they failed to take it to heart when their team loses. 5. I think we had many draws than wins meaning that defensively we were doing okay and that in itself is a plus considering that we did not consider so much as other teams 6. Last but not least, on our previous game against Free State Stars a soccer fanatic could see that there is nothing that Komphela could have done as players missed simple sitters that even Primary School kids can convert and we then tend to blame the coach for players lack of self belief and failure to take much needed responsibility in the 18 area. I will not be surprised if we beat Golden Arrows by more than 3:0 tonight, what will have changed between Saturday and today? a mere 3 days after losing a semi final...Let's be honest here some of the stuff a coach can not do much about and the level of PSL is one that players should be experienced enough to make right decisions at the right time...I know this because I am a soccer player myself...
