Supporters Giving Up On Kaizer Chiefs

The Khosi nation finds itself in the middle of their worst run since 2007, a season as barren as the Kalahari itself. As the goals have begun to dwindle, so have the support numbers. Can Amakhosi recover? Kaizer Chiefs, the most widely supported team in the country, are not attracting numbers to their games… These are strange times indeed.

We spoke to prominent Chiefs fan Saddam Maake to get his take on the situation.

"Some supporters have completely given up," he said.

"I think most supporters are waiting for what the chairman said to kick in."

What he is referring to here is the speech made by Kaizer Motaung in which he stated that Amakhosi will be looking to beef up their squad with some quality for next season.

"This is just not our year. Tough times indeed, we have to see something different," Maake added.

Saddam also shared his opinion on those he thinks are fair-weather supporters.

"You know, as a supporter you must have a heart like a stone, not an ice cream. An ice cream is soft and melts in the sun. A stone remains through good times and bad."

Chiefs will be hoping their poor run-in will not lead to their worst finish in the league, which came in 2001/02 and 2006/07, when they finished ninth.

When Ajax Cape Town was first formed, games against Chiefs in Johannesburg would draw crowds of up to 50 000. It is a gloomy comparison to contrast it to the scenes on Saturday night, when the mighty Amakhosi took on the Urban Warriors to the echoes of their own studs against the ground. 

What can the club do to turn things around? When will we see a change in strategy?
