'We Want Everyone In South Africa To Become Bloem Celtic Fans'

What a difference a year makes. From the drags of footballing hell to five-goal thrillers, it seems as if Bloemfontein Celtic have turned things around... for now. The latest instalment of the episode was the thrilling 3-2 comeback win over Platinum Stars on Wednesday night.

The supporters are happy, but they will not stop there. They are out to make up for the divisions at the beginning of the year, so this is perfectly timed with an improvement in form on the field. Supporters Club caught up with chairman of the Supporters Interim Committee, Mabena Pule to see what the feeling is in Bloem.

"Things are coming right," he said.

"We are on track for next season, the coaching and technical team are finding their feet,

"Maybe the turnaround in form was because of the panic of the possibility of relegation."

Mabena revealed that the supporters are happy the new stadium is in the township, closer to the people, and that it will be "packed to the rafters" next season.

Mabena also said they will be launching a recruitment programme in the off-season. They want "all supporters of other clubs to come over. We want everyone to become a Bloemfontein Celtic supporter."

Whether this strategy will work or not remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: Phunya Sele Sele are playing with some heart at the moment. Thrashing Sundowns 3-1, demolishing Ajax CT 5-0, and coming back from 2-1 down to beat Dikwena 3-2 away from home are some pretty impressive results. Keep it up, Siwelele!

What do you think accounts for the turnaround in Celtic's form?
