Kaizer Chiefs – Just A Matter Of Luck?

Kaizer Chiefs and the supporters have been through a rollercoaster of emotions recently. Firstly, there was a period of difficulty marred by poor performances. Since then, the club's fortunes have changed and the points have started to pour in. What has accounted for the upturn in fortunes?

This issue was raised in last week's issue of Soccer Laduma, when we spoke to ex-Chiefs star Pollen Ndlanya, who suggested that the issue was the players, not the coach, and that now things have started to change.

An Orlando Pirates supporter has suggested that it is possibly neither the coach nor the players, but rather luck, a massively discounted element of football, that was the issue.

"I don't fully agree with Ndlanya because, like I said before, Chiefs started winning games that they're playing well in. It was just a matter of luck, otherwise they've been playing well since (even better than us Bucs, who were winning yet playing badly). You could see that luck was the problem because, even against Platinum Stars, they had to share points even though Ng'ambi's shot didn't cross the line. Sometimes you can play well but still lose games or play badly yet win games. The harsh truth is that (we) as fans don't care how our teams play, all we care about is winning, and that's the only thing that matters to the majority of fans." – old dog

Do you think luck plays a role in football, or do teams make their own luck?
