@Vamza: so according to you TS Sporting is Tim Sukazi's team! nc nc nc you should have researched before blogging here. Ever heard of TS Galaxy? Edish is even assisting you by saying "the newly promoted NED team" , Tim Sukazi bought a team, his team was not promoted.

Mhlongo was elbowed u Micho, Good luck boy, and please enhance yourself by registering for higher Coaching Course Qualifications. People like Tebogo have no coaching qualification, lazy to study. People like Mendu, Muchichwa, are arm chair lazy to study analysts
