SL editors seem clueless about football. I mean, for years this footballdatabase rankings being posted here, and bloggers complaining,questioning and arguing about the criteria used, but SL remains mute instead of coming out and laying out things considered to be ranked higher.

At least SL editors are consoling FAU's fans with something here. Although SL editors are also consoling themselves since they are FAU's fans too.

Clearly these rankings have nothing to do with performance in the pitch. Cowditor since you know too much, please also share the criteria that is used in these rankings.

Just like Arsenal at EPL, Chiefs gradually died. Even SL only post about Komphela's ridiculous interviews and Khune's worthless clean sheets.

Rankings are nothing. They like having more ball possession than your opposition team on the match and ending up loosing the game. But if you're an idiot,you can be happy for the rankings if your team is above Orlando Pirates.
