What is the meaning of "none penalty danger zone goals:"? The ball didn't place itself in the "danger zone", players had to penetrate the defence for the ball to be in that position. Count goals, and stop attaching labels to goals coweditor.... +23 goal difference

I hope Pirates' supporters are not going to celebrate these stats the way Chiefs' supporters use to celebrate FootballDataNyoso rankings, and Downs' supporters celebrating the wealth of Motsepe.

Truth be told, Pirates displayed good football this season, entertaining and enjoyable to watch, same as Sundowns although they had an upper hand than the building Orlando Pirates...am afraid i cant say the same about Kaizer Chiefs...

Pirates is the best team this season but Dunusa is great team while our team is a defensive team. If Musa Nyatama don't win midfielder of the season then I will have no choice but to take a break in football activities. No midfielder has done so great so far... Kekana come closer though..
