Supporter: We Are Fooling Ourselves Over Kasi Flavour

South Africa is a unique country, with many interesting facets to our football. One famous feature of Mzansi football is kasi flavour – the ability to make the game entertaining for the audience. However, one supporter has urged us to encourage it in a different kind of way.

"We are fooling ourselves," Soccer Laduma website reader Mrabaraba wa Mketule said.

"People – we need to encourage players to do the basics of football right and so far we are losing the intention of dribbling. We are encouraging players to stand over the ball doing so much tricks without delivering decent passes and creating quick chances before defenders or opposition can position themselves to defend.

"I watched many clips of Zongo, Qalinge, Rakhale and even Scara, and sometimes they are just for gallery and nothing conducive comes from those tricks.

"We embrace the rare talent of these guys but can they deliver when it matters most? Are they able to deliver decent crosses and cover space in a short period and punish opponents, or are they playing tricks and delaying until opponents come back and close the spaces?"

Is there a way to use kasi flavour productively? What role can the supporters play in encouraging this?
