Morning guys and girls. Today’s conversation has been all about Bafana Bafana, following last night’s performance against Nigeria at the Cape Town Stadium.
Shakes Mashaba’s charges dominated against the Super Eagles in the Afcon qualifier, where Dean Furman and Andile Jali bossed the middle of the park in the goalless draw. The final ball was lacking, yes, but coach Mashaba has the team playing in a well structured shape. The key to success in football.
Our football identity is coming to light on the field, and I am confident that we will grow from strength to strength.
As I do on Thursdays, I want to give our Soccer Laduma Supporters Club members some feedback from this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma.

We revealed in “Gorowa added to Chippa candidates” that Ian Gorowa, Mlungisi Ngubane, Boebie and Cavin Johnson have been linked to the job, however Solomons has since taken over at Cape Town All Stars.
Stixzonenic posted on September 06, "[In part] “Itumeleng Khune needs to be offered long time contract by Kaizer Chiefs, he is their life time best goalkeeper. As we know Chiefs have the best goalies but Khune is the best of the best followed by Brian Baloyi, Butende Eshele and Gary Bailey. They need to extend it right now before Sundowns put a giant offer on Khune.”
We did some digging, and our sources have indicated that that Downs are monitoring Itu, as in “Downs eye Khune deal”. However, I am sure Chiefs will do what ever it takes to keep Bafana Bafana’s number one at Naturena.
WWWWWWWWW posted on September 03, "Everything is being said about this deal between Keagan and Sundowns except for the duration of the contract. Or I missed it? @Eddie, can you clarify?”
We revealed in “Dolly’s huge Downs wage increase!” that the Ajax midfielder has agreed to a three year deal, which includes an option, and went went one step further to report on how the lucrative contract has affected his financial situation.
I encourage all of you to continue sending in your requests, and I will get the Siya crew to investigate for you.
Catch up later, Eddie
