“As supporters we not really the ones who can tell the coaches who to play, but Parker is not adding any value anymore. Castro and Nurkovic should be regular starters with Kambole used as a sub. I still think we should get another striker in the January transfer window.”
This is the assessment by SL Supporter @Peaceloving on Kaizer Chiefs’ frontline, ahead of their crunch Telkom Knockout encounter with Cape Town City this weekend.
Castro’s impressive hat-trick against his former side Mamelodi Sundowns has reminded fans that he still has what it takes to lead the Amakhosi line. SL Supporter @Vhivha shares this sentiment.
“No need to panic. Let Samir recover 100%, our depth will carry us and Castro will deliver us from evil. Parker, wearing an armband will not guarantee you selection, no goals no play, the eish holiday time is over, we have players that have shown hunger, what we need is commitment from all and a win.”
An area of concern for Chiefs fans has been the performance of veteran striker Bernard Parker, who despite being yet to find the back of the net this season, continues to rack up playing minutes.
SL supporter @Fanlekhosified feels that the men from Naturena perform better without ‘Die Hond’.
“We rested Parker and scored 4 goals against Sundowns. We used Parker against Celtic and did not score...”
Many have called for the Nurkovic/ Castro combination but SL Supporter @Wandzimal is quick to warn that this combination failed to yield results in the past.
“I'm sure most Khosi fans would like to see both big animals Nurkovic and Castro together but coach tried that in one game and it never worked because both only thrive when surrounded by mobile players... Khama, Zuma... you name them...”
What is your preferred Kaizer Chiefs attacking combination?
