I cannot tell what is happening at Free State Stars firstly they fired Serame Letsoaka after helping them to survive relegation and replacing him Sammy that for me was a wrong move now they are releasing players left right and center and I don't hear them signing any quality players I see trouble this team is one of the candidate for relegation and this time around they wont survive if they don't fix their team.

What is wrong with this Mtsweni boy? when I saw him playing he was marvellous. Is he have a discipline problem? Then he'll be like Zongo abd Mabuzela
