Team KICK OFF

Knowledge Musona has not scored even one goal in one and half seasons in the Bundesliga. He is not even in the 18-man squad for his struggling bottom of the table team Augsburg.

I saw him come onto the field for 5 minutes sometime in November. Musona finished the leading scorer in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League at the end of the 2010-11 season, precipitating a R15-million move to Hoffenheim.

The only goal he has was in a Cup game. He has even been switched to the wing from his striking position. But why has he failed? I remember it took him a few months to settle at Chiefs before he started banging in the goals. Is it possible to see a January transfer move for him back to South Africa? I do not see Hoffenheim taking him back after this loan spell at Augsburg.

It would be great for all of us to be on the same page, what is failure?

Hehehehehehehehe defensive approach. Maybe you should have used "failing"

Being loaned out to a smaller team. Not scoring a single league goal in over a year, sitting on the bench for a team you were loaned out to, being left out of an 18-man squad for 2 matches.

has he been playing for that time he has not scored a goal?

not playing is also failing. Thamsanqa Sangweni is failing at Sundowns.

Hehehehe Robin Johannes is also failing at Pirates

failure is not archiving what you want to...

We failed to win the TKO cup, that is failure....

Stonza you have given me examples of failure, but how can you be siad to have failed when you are still trying.

Failure is when you give up trying, that is how I see it.

"Knowledge Musona has not scored even one goal in one and half seasons in the Bundesliga. He is not even in the 18-man squad for his struggling bottom of the table team Augsburg"

Poor Musona, how do we expect him to score if he can make the bench?

Musona went there too soon, but we can't blame him, we was sold and bought...the seller saw an opportunity to cash in and the unsuspecting purchaser took an un-calculated risk, the result hurt Musona more than anyone.

This may prove that maybe, just maybe Musona was one season wonder or he was good enough in the PSL but not average at Bundesliga.

Inconsistency!

Form is fleeting, only class is permanent!

If you recall, the very same Musona struggled to score upon returning from the Xmas break in his final season at Naturena and pretty much earned that move based on his blitzkrieg performance in the first round. Some of us were called names here when we predicted exactly this; we were told he is more than ready as they went and interviewed everyone in that wunderkind's hometown

Now we are being asked to relook the definition of failure! It is the opposite of success and certainly, for a striker, Hoffenheim haven't seen that with their acquisition, whichever way one looks at it.

 

Two questions;

1) Is this a reflection on the standard of our PSL or rather our defenders (incl goalkeepers) OR

2) Are strikers imported from Naturena jinxed once they try their luck overseas a la Mbesuma?

Some players are just good in the PSL.

Let me just shoot straight to answers Faz:

1) Is this a reflection on the standard of our PSL or rather our defenders (incl goalkeepers)= YES eg Azwindini Maphaha (Black Leopards keepr), K Ritche (Chiefs left back), very weak but highly overrated.

2) Are strikers imported from Naturena jinxed once they try their luck overseas a la Mbesuma? = YES..but they always make a killing in their sales, the motto, "As long as Chiefs suffer after your departure, so is your career where you go"

 

Summary


Chiefs is just an overrated brand. It is actually an overrated version of Black Leopards. The sooner we realize this the better.
