A common debate surrounding South African soccer is that of Kasi Flavor and its place in the modern game. Some supporters say there is absolutely no room for it, some say it is important as it is part of our culture and our way of playing, then there are others who think it can be used, in moderation, and it should be adapted.
Such was the view of one of our supporters, Mrabaraba we Mketule, who stated that we should change the way we view Kasi flavor. This arose in a Get Published article written by Jonnybee50 discussing Tshepo Matete (better known as Skhwama) and whether his style will be well received in the PSL alongside other “tricksters” such as Masibusane Zongo and Thabo Rakhale.
“Can we encourage them to dribble with purpose going forward and producing the end product being a goal? How many assists and how many goals have these guys scored? Is there anything that we can take home benefitting the team, not their names? In any sport I know there is always star players but I still believe basics are compromised too much for the sake of gallery and that is where we fail.
Doctor started playing for gallery and if you can watch previous games where we were walloped by Australia, Mexico, Nigeria, Zambia by 4 goals, we were not doing the basics right and Doctor Khumalo improved a lot and became a far better team player with his skills we managed to eliminate so much opponents and created many chances for strikers.
We need to encourage that not just playing round and round football without meaning. This guy is talented but still is not doing the basics of delivery of dangerous crosses and passes to his strikers to punish opponents. So is Rakhale and others. Zongo was improving and his last 3 games was something to take home but fell apart due to off the field forces.” Said Mrabaraba we Mketule.
What do you think of this supporters opinion?
