Features and OPINIONS


The Buccaneers had been given the week's end off after their Caf Confederation Cup enemies, LPRC Oilers, pulled out from the resistance


For different reasons, both the Soweto beasts - Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, were done for this week's end.


Kaizer Chiefs' season to fall?


thatThe most prominent spotlight around the week's end was apparently on a game which didn't happen, that between Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City at FNB Stadium. Amakhosi made the decision not to pitch up for the match, refering to 31 positive Covid-19 cases as the defense behind that. Since the PSL offered no comment or controlling on the matter, City turned up, and are comprehensively expected to be given a 3-0 walkover.


It's unlikely Amakhosi will appear for their next few matches either, including Wednesday's down against Golden Arrows, and on the off chance that the PSL won't think twice about, Glamor Boys could be missing a ton of centers and may even get fined as well.


PSL's stony calm


The PSL have been placed in a genuinely difficult circumstance by Chiefs. Also remembering that it's legitimate that they may need to take as much time as is expected to study the whole situation and to settle on a choice, their all out calm on the matter was probably not the best approach. The whole country, football darlings regardless, were left in indefinite quality on Saturday evening.


We've seen diverse PSL banter cases postponing for quite a while already, and with the new knowledge about PSL agent Nande Becker halting his circumstance close to the furthest limit of the week, this latest conversation could proceed for a surprisingly long time.


Sekhukhune continue to bewilder


It's been a time of shock groups, and that consolidates as of late progressed Sekhukhune United. They moved to second on the standings on Sunday after Tshediso Patjie got a 87th-minute champ in a 1-0 victory against SuperSport United in Pretoria.


Sekhukhune are on 23 concentrations from 13 matches, eight concentrations behind pioneers Mamelodi Sundowns. Behind them in third are another side in their first season in the five star, Royal AM.


Environment conditions have an effect


Both Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi and AmaZulu tutor Benni McCarthy felt their sides had been unfairly affected by the environment. Mngqithi inferred the strong breeze in his side's 1-1 draw in away to Stellenbosch FC. McCarthy felt the storm created some issues for his gathering in Saturday's 0-0 draw against Royal AM at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.


Stellenbosch give further assumption that Sundowns can be moved back


Mamelodi Sundowns made an irritating beginning to the season, but have dropped off a bit of late. They're still to lose a game, but have now drawn three of their last five mechanical assemblies. They've furthermore given up three destinations in their last three matches having not yielded in any way shape or form for the underlying 10.

It can't be said that splits are starting to appear, yet fundamentally there's confirmation that the Brazilians can be moved back. The issue is, none of the gatherings around them has showed adequate consistency Downs really have a significant lead at the top.


Bafana's World Cup trusts deteriorate


Bafana's excursion to have their match against Ghana replayed - after a questionable discipline, was denied by Fifa.


Ghana Football Association general secretary Prosper Harrison Addo added salt to the wounds:

"The South African Football Association is clueless in football and this case evidently shows how blundering they are," said Addo.
