Another Shameful Season In Soweto?

Here at Supporters Club, we love giving our readers a platform to voice their opinions and share their views on the beautiful game and their beloved teams. One of our fans wrote an article on the downfall of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, who were once the darlings of South African soccer.

"Over the years, Soweto teams have paralysed plenty of their opponents and collected majority of the accolades that were there to be collected, but it looks like things have changed, the weather isn't going their way, it seems to go against both these titanic teams. 

"Amakhosi have not tasted victory in their last nine matches in all competitions following Wednesday's goalless draw at home against Bloemfontein Celtic. The last time Chiefs went nine matches without a win was during the 2001/02 season, under Muhsin Ertugral.

"On the other side of town, their rivals seems to be hitting a rock also, playing draws where they shouldn't, their head coach Muhsin resigning live on TV, Palacious being roped as interim coach, winning his first three matches before losing out in the TKO semis. Getting a whip on Tuesday from Maritzburg United 2-1 showed us that there is still lot to be done. 

"Both Soweto giants have now lost in two cups this season, namely the MTN8 and TKO, and in both cups neither of these giants went to the final."

Does this mean our league is becoming more competitive, with smaller teams becoming stronger? Is there more than meets the eye in Soweto?
