I'm not a Sundowns fan but I've been impressed with constant performance (man marking, ball distribution and crosses) of Matthew Pattison and I therefore think that the guy deserve a place at Bafana more especially after Benson Mhlongo's injury.
He is not overlooked or perhaps I should say he is not the only player that is being overlooked, players like Daine Klate, Erwin Isaacs, Fadlu Davids to name a few are good consistent players but they never get Bafana call ups, so let usjust admire and support those good players that we have in the country because they are the ones who make this league so competitive.
Man, you know people like Jomo tell it like it is, you should have read last week 'soccer week' paper and you would understand that when Jomo said coaches,agents and big chiefs are using BB as a tool to promote their soccer teams then you would understand that these players are being deliberately overlooked and what for... soccer politics ntate.
SAFA is run like the ANC government... its about who you are and what is in for you....i.e Fahlu Davids agent should maybe be Rob Moore and he should either play for Pirates/chiefs in order to be considered.....as long as he is playing for MaritzU then he can only be called be called if there is pressure from supporters.
I don't think it is true, Chiefs has been having a bad run lately and only Tshabalala is the Chiefs player in Bafana team.
We might all agree that some players deserve to be in the Bafana team than others but let us not attribute that to players playing for small teams.
Pattison is a decent player but not everybody will play for BB let sit and wait maybe he will be called if not it is also not a train smash there are a lot of good players who are being overlooked and people are saying nothing ie Segolela,Kadi,Myeni,Mashamaite, Isaacs, Wayne Arendse etc.
Superrb player, I think at first the coach played him in the wrong position (left wing), then they play him in midfield, he's good there, gives us competition in Midfield, Sibaya Dikgacoi Patterson Renelwe - F*ck Davids and Mhlongo.
