'They Deserve To Play Derby Behind Closed Doors'

The Soweto Derby has come and gone. Being one of the biggest events in the country's football calendar, people drove from all over to see the affair. However, the goalless draw has left a sour taste in the mouths of the supporters who make this derby special.

Here are some sobering statistics to consider about the Soweto Derby: the first six years of the derby being played saw 130 goals being scored; in the past six years, only 30 goals have been registered in the fixture.

"This thing is not a derby, but is a vuvuzela competition." – fitso vs zebraitor

"Nowadays, it's a useless derby indeed. They deserve to play it behind closed doors, man." – y2k.matthew.kby

"Please PSL, separate Chiefs and Pirates fans when seating them on the stands. We want competition and to see the 12th player clearly. They do that at Wembley and in Europe. What makes it hard for you? Right now, the derbies are like social games and that's why fans now don't go to the stadiums because the seating arrangements don't bring the vibe. In England, you hear fans singing." – Maredo

"It has lost its spark because players and coaches are too cautious and scared to lose, they don't show the passion of wanting it more than the other. Pathetic really. That was a mediocre display, in my opinion.... They hype up the fans and supporters before the game, giving them false hope." – BOI

"It was a boring derby, even the Limpopo derby was better because we saw many goals and it was interesting." – Singa-boy

What needs to be done to make this derby exciting again? Must we accept that the game will forever be a low-scoring event?
