Ok... now that the dust has settled a bit, here is my view. We are supporters of a very big club (Orlando Pirates), not only in South Africa but Africa as well. These kinds of things come with the package, we win big games and we lose big games.
Big teams in Europe go through this year…Continue

Let me cause a big debate and believe me, I am right as per CAF rules and regulations.
A team that wins the CAF Champions League automatically qualifies to defend its trophy the following season irrespective of whether they are Champions of their domestic league or…Continue

The pain of being a soccer fan is that we are able to see beyond the gloom and doom: it is the passion and love for the game that makes us belief even when our teams are at the lowest.
Those who are the masters of this beautiful game often tell us that football is scientific, and success in it is…

Many of our fellow citizens are under the impression that the 'ineligible ethiopian player' cant be punished twice for one crime & as convinced as they are, they never once did considered this
When a player is suspended, two things happen, (1) They immediately become 'ineligible' to parcitipate in the next fixture. (2) They have to serve their suspension.
In the game against Botswana an ineligible player was fielded & thus 3pts should & will be…Continue
I would like to congratulate Benni McCarthy for an outstanding 17 years of football career at national and international level. Bravo to McCarthy for calling it a day in the football at the right time whilst he was still on top of his game despite injuries that kept him out of…
When last season Absa renewed their sponsorship after few deliberations, the prize money was disappointedly the same R10million but spruced with PR titbits of Q innovation. The intention was to rouse the teams to add verve in their approach to the game, which in turn could add more bums to the seats and few points on the log.
After an early burst the bubble was, alas, burst! In truth the league for the past six seasons has regressed. Pirates last year finished three points lower than…Continue

Greetings lovers of the beautiful game.
Allow me to opine on the star that decorate the badge of my beloved Orlando Pirates FC (OPFC). Is it relevant for the Mighty Bucs to wear the star during the domestic PSL games? I guess not. Pirates must not wear the star in the league as the star honours another competition. True, they qualified for CAF Champions League on being domestic champions but the suspensions, registration of players in CAF has nothing to do…Continue
