Hey all, how are you football loving people doing?! I am sure your topic of conversation today has been all about last night’s PSL action.
What a night of football! Pirates got the better of Sundowns in the first major clash of the 2014/15 Absa Premiership season, in a game that was filled with action, drama and controversy.
Chiefs continued with their rich vein of form, while Aces claimed their first win of the campaign in what could have been the last game for Cavin Johnson in charge of SuperSport.
Moving on, I want to follow up with all of you on this week’s Siyagobhoza, in edition 886. We had a number of requests from some of our members, which the Siya crew reported back on.
On August 25, vuvuzela_khosi asked: “I want 2 know the latest developments concerning Francis Kone's deal 2 Chiefs and what is happening with Bacela? Is he in VV's plans bcoz he doesn't play him and he never mentioned his name when he was talking about Bucs strikers.
Kone is waiting to hear from Chiefs and although the transfer window slams shut on Friday, he is a free agent which means that he will not be restricted by the deadline. Did you read the article, “Kone waits on Chiefs”? With regards to Bacela, we still digging, we have not got anything concrete yet.
Again on, August 25, Ada_khosi posted: “Any transfer news at Naturena? By the way how r u mr editor?”
We reported back on Knowledge Musona, in “Musona - A matter of money and ambition”, and on Kone. PS, I’m good, thanks for asking.
On August 22, TrevorBaker posted: “(On Sundowns and their loan policy not allowing loanees to play against them, following Patrice Motsepe’s statements) Eddie, please do some digging on this issue, will this clause come to an end or will Sundowns continue to apply it. If the President of the team doesn't like it, surely he has the power to put a stop to it.”
We have been informed, as reported in “No clause for Dolly... and the rest?” that Keagan Dolly will face Sundowns this season while on loan at Ajax, as Eleazar Rodgers did last campaign. It seems that Downs are open to negotiate on their policy, and I am certain that more PSL clubs will look to follow in Ajax’s footsteps. There has been no official statement from Downs.
Guys, thank you for all contributing to this week’s Siyagobhoza. You are all part of the Soccer Laduma family and it is great being in touch with you on a daily basis. The friendship is growing day-by-day!
