Are The Supporters Turning Their Backs On Chiefs Or Are Chiefs Turning Their Backs On Supporters?

In the most recent Kaizer Chiefs game, against Ajax CT, there was no more than an estimated 1 500 people in attendance for a match that used to draw crowds of up to 50 000 every time. So we ask the question: who is letting down whom, Chiefs or the supporters?

There are two sides to the argument here. Firstly, one can easily see how the supporters are feeling let down. Amakhosi's performance this season has been sub-standard, the team has had no real venomous displays of championship style football, the fans no longer see the point in spending all the money to come watch their team grind out disheartening results, and the supporters also don't understand how a team with so much money has not made any big signings.

Soccer Laduma website user and Chiefs supporter Ronaldinho10 is not happy.

"True Chiefs fans will never tolerate this because it is not a bad spell but mistakes from certain individuals who do not care for this institution," he said.

On the other side of the coin, though, some say you should die with your boots on as a supporter, so to speak. A parallel is often drawn to English football, where Manchester United and Chelsea will always play in front of a full house regardless of form because that is how devout their supporters are.

Another SL user, mwelasemxolisib, believes the Amakhosi faithful need to continue backing the teams.

"Things are falling apart at our village, but as a Khosi Nation, we need to get behind our boys," he said.

"True supporters never lose hope."

Where do you sit in this argument? Do you think a poorly performing team deserves to play in front of an empty stadium? Or should the fans stick it out and pay money to see the team nonetheless?
