Reader's Voice: 'Chiefs Will Be Lucky To Reach Top 4 In This Form'

Uthini?

After a 1-1 draw with Polokwane City, Kaizer Chiefs head coach Ernst Middendorp told the club's official website that the result is not a true reflection of his side's capabilities and effort. Amakhosi have won only four of their past 11 games and fans are getting very impatient. What did some of them say?

Onias Dube thinks the players are to blame for the draw against Rise & Shine. The Soccer Laduma reader thinks multiple missed chances and the blunder by goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi are the actual reasons why Chiefs dropped points:

"How many chances did we give away until the mistake by the goalkeeper [Akpeyi]? I am also blaming the goalkeeper but the very people who caused the draw are our strikers, who are always on a goal-missing spree. Our midfield is now improved and they are able to create clear-cut chances but none of our strikers convert…. We will be lucky if we manage to reach 40 points or top four with this performance."

Middendorp, popularly known as "Middendraw" by the fans due to his run of results in his first tenure at Chiefs, is seemingly losing the supporters' patience yet again. Tshepo L'espoir Mosola feels Middendorp is making excuses for his team and that history may repeat itself given his recent run of results:

"Middendraw must not come with excuses here. We know that a draw is a very good result for him. He doesn't win. This is the reason he got fired before so this is not new."

Thokozani Elias Mahamba seems to have a more pessimistic view of where Chiefs will be by the end of the season:

"We will not participate in the MTN8 next season, mark my words."
