Supporters Getting Tired of Komphela's 'Blunt Excuses'

At the beginning of any season, supporters are usually optimistic about their team's chances, particularly when equipped with a new coach. If, halfway through the campaign, the results have been inconsistent, half the stands will be filled with optimists and the other half with pessimists. Now the question is: What point of the season are Kaizer Chiefs at? And what does the 3-1 loss to Sundowns signal to their supporters?

There is a common thread of humour that runs through our football; that some coaches are known for certain traits. Steve Komphela is best known for his well-spoken manner, with his English teaching background, and this often reflects in his post-match interview. Now, though, it seems Komphela is merely talking himself into trouble with the supporters.

"This coach is full of excuses." – Dr. Barnes

"He will always justify nonsense; this whole season we haven't beaten Pirates or Sundowns." – doorinkruin

"Blunt excuses." – dawana442

Komphela's bemoaning of refereeing decisions this weekend fell upon deaf ears. In fact, it was actually quite confusing for most, considering that the refereeing errors on the night seemed to be kind to Amakhosi. The Glamour Boys' first goal resulted from a handball the official didn't spot, and there were a number of questionable incidents throughout the night.

It seems, this weekend past, that Chiefs put up the kind of performance that the supporters simply cannot ignore and cannot excuse. Handballs, own goals, red cards, penalties and conceding three goals is not an acceptable standard for a championship squad.

"Chiefs were horrible. Handball, penalty, Katsande own goal." – the running man

"We do not need a constitutional court to rule you (Komphela) unfit to coach a team like Chiefs. Stop talking. Enough is enough, and the damage has been done. What is left is how to fix the mess we find ourselves in." – Maqheka

Where to now for Chiefs? Are there any glimmers of hope that you saw in this weekend's match? What needs to change?
