Supporters Still Backing Coach Thobejane

Life in the PSL has been a rude awakening for newcomers Baroka FC. They have managed one win in five top-flight games so far, including a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Chippa United. This has put pressure on coach Kgoloko Thobejane, but how do the supporters fancy his chances?

Many voiced their concerns, before the season began, that Baroka chairman Khurishi Mphahlele must be patient if the team gets off to a losing start and must not be trigger-happy in firing the coach, as many new PSL clubs do.

"That's the problem newly promoted teams competing for all trophies instead of focusing on staying afloat." – Big-Mike14 Banned By The Editor

Many supporters are still throwing their weight behind coach Thobejane, though, and say that patience is needed.

"If they decide to hire a new coach, they shouldn't demote (Thobejane). They must keep him as an assistant because they will need him." – Magebhula Sokzin

"They are playing good football, firing the coach won't help, they should just try to survive this season... just for the players to get experience and then, next season, I'm sure they'll do amazing things, just like Leicester..." – pszungu35

"I don't think it is necessary to put pressure on the coach like this, Soccer Laduma should know better. The coach is still new to the PSL and, to be honest, he's doing well for a coach of his little experience. Losing two games out of five game, honestly, now you're under pressure as if there is someone with a hidden agenda against you. No, this is no fair to our own SA coaches." – Xego S.M - eCofimvaba

Hopefully Baroka begins to get things right; it would be a pity to see Bakgaga sink back down to the NFD. The team brings a refreshing energy to the PSL and their straight-talking and confident coach helps the entertainment in our often dry league.

Should Baroka stick with Thobejane?
