Chiefs In Danger Of Worst PSL Campaign…

Kaizer Chiefs May Have Their Worst Points Tally Ever

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 12, 2018 03:52 PM
Kaizer Chiefs need to make sure that they pick up at least four points from their last four games if they’re to avoid equalling their worst PSL campaign ever.
 
 
The Amakhosi are currently fourth in the Absa Premiership following last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Chippa United, and after 26 games have only 39 points to their name.
 
Steve Komphela is under increasing pressure at Naturena as the end of his current contract draws closer, and with Platinum Stars, Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United and Ajax Cape Town left to play, he needs to start picking up results if he’s to avoid missing out on a CAF spot for the third consecutive year.
 
Furthermore, if Chiefs don’t finish third this season, then it will be the first time since the formation of the PSL that they’ve finished outside the top three for three seasons in a row, a record that Komphela will be eager to avoid. 
 
 
Chiefs’ worst ever campaign in terms of points tally came back in 2006/07 when they finished ninth on 42 points. The following year was marginally better as they picked up 43 and finished sixth. If they get less than three points from four games then it will be officially their worst season with regards to points since the PSL era began.
 
The maximum points they can achieve this year is 51, a total that would be worse than 11 of their tallies since 1996/97, and that is only possible if they win all four of their remaining games, but to finish third they must also rely on Maritzburg to drop points.
 
Komphela’s Glamour Boys finished with 46 points in his first season and 50 in his second, and he will be desperate to make sure that he doesn’t drop below that this time around.

Well even those years we still won SA Super 8 and Telkom Cup respectively. Coaches who couldn't win the league, like Dolezar, VV and Mushin, still gave us trophies. Whichever way we look at it, Steve is the most pathetic coach Chiefs has ever employed. The worst part is that all other coaches had to leave for not winning enough trophies, especially the league. Yet this one who won nothing see through an entire 3-year contract. That's how least ambitious the Motaungs have become. There was a time when Steve played attractive football but failed to get results. He has since resorted to defensive tactics, which was partially acceptable in the beginning. However, come 2018 when the team had grown in confidence and were in contention for the league, Steven maintained his system. Little did he realise that the players had peaked under his mentorship and the time had come to go for the jugular. At the turn of the year having won about four games or so in succession, he played Downs at a "peak hour." Stupidly, when downs were playing for a draw, he failed to capitalise and decided to settle for an unnecessary draw. The rest is history. This coach failed to smell the blood. January 2018 was a time when he was suppose to relinquish his defensive mindset. The players were ready. The coach wasn't. He pulled us back. At best, Steve is an analyst, not a coach. He would do better in studio with Robert Marawa or having his own football show. I rest my case.

Overhaul should include Shabba,Katsande,Parker,Malulek a,Paez and they should be replaced with better players than them and Khompela to leave us with peace and Lux from FS Stars to take over

I don't know if Fau idiots don't understand or they don't want to understand. Rotte finished outside top8 last season, this is data, it won't change, we will refer to this data in future. Will it be stupid or meaningless to analyse this data in future? I don't think so..

This article is stupid, Chiefs is not even close to relegation like Ajax, SSU, Platinum Stars. The worst part is that Rats are guaranteed a trophy less season bit they are praised.

Yet we our told they are the best team in the league. I doubt the majority of fau idiots went to school. How can they fail to analyse this simple data if they know where school class room is?

Its been really bad this season yet we have the material to compete. I wonder what is the problem? Maybe players get too comfortable once they sign and stop pushing themselves.
