Caught between a rock and a hard place – that's how one can best describe playing Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United in two consecutive games, which is exactly where Kaizer Chiefs find themselves currently. The supporters look back at the game that has just passed, and look ahead to the daunting task that lies ahead against Stuart Baxter and his soldiers.
Many supporters are, understandably, feeling alienated by the current state of the best-supported team in the land.
"Chiefs are causing us migraines... Honestly speaking, this Steve-Bobby is a mess never to be repeated." – Diski-nine-nine!
"Mr. Five Defenders must go, it's enough, please Mr Komphela, just resign." – TT Rapsinoh
"Kaizer Senior is just sitting back relaxing and watching while we suffer like this... Please Chincha, can't you see that we are being ridiculed and made a laughing stock... we were once mighty, but these days small teams like Sundowns humiliate us like this... oh come on now." – Mtshov'alale
Others have not yet lost hope, and will continue to stand by their team no matter what. Many supporters are discussing the various players in the team, in terms of what Chiefs have and what they used to have.
"Whether it has a leaking roof or broken windows, your home is still your home; it is the place where some of the best memories of your life were made and where some of your hardest battles were overcome... it is for this reason that, in good and bad times, I remain loyal to my beloved team. We may be ish now but we will recover, it's not thee first time." – mjoster
"Why did Chiefs fail to buy quality players? Because now Steve sees there's no quality goalscorers and quality playmakers. The quality of Yeye, who can go back anytime and eventually you see him in offensive play. We miss the quality of Thabo Mooki, Doctor, Ace, Scara. Now we have these Zimbabweans and we blame Stevovo. The coach is scared, that's why he played five defenders." – sick note
"Komphela must thank Gordinho, he is a skilful defender, he stopped Laffor many times. Downs nearly scored first, it was only because of Gordinho that didn't happen." – Realydoctor10
