An Open Letter To Lehlohonolo Majoro

Dear Lehlohonolo Majoro,

The Kaizer Chiefs Supporters are not angry with you, you must understand that some of us at Chiefs idolised you and even at times idolised you by using your jersey number.

It is a bitter pill to swallow that you went to our fiercest rivals (Orlando Pirates) and…

Kaizer Chiefs running away with it…

It looks to be a one horse race for the Soweto giants, after a successful 2012/2013 season as a result of a league triumph and a Nedbank cup. That however, does not seem to be enough for the Baxter-led Kaizer Chiefs.…

Bafana Bafana failure at CHAN 2014

For once I never wanted to comment on the failure of Bafana Bafana to advance yet again to the next stage of another tournament- CHAN 2014. However for starters let me say, Nigeria always have Bafana's number- even when Nigeria is playing poorly - they always get their act together when the face Bafana Bafana. Bafana Bafana beating Nigeria- that would have been the shock of the tournament. But this failure by our national team- yet…

Lehlohonolo Majoro deserves a right of choice

Lehlohonolo Majoro since his contract is expiring in June, then he is automatically qualifying to sign a pre-season contract with any team or renew with Kaizer Chiefs. I believe the challenge that he had with his current employers is that Chiefs involved him in the deal…

The PSL need to step up

KickOff.com editor Ryan Cooper wonders why the PSL would ban Morgan Gould for two matches for a punch and Mabhuti Khenyeza 12 months for spitting near someone ...

I think new (ish) Premier Soccer League CEO Brand de Villiers will be the first to admit that his first four or so months in the hotseat…

City taking the bull by its horns

Real City cannot hide their delight after making their way to the National Second Division. After some impressive displays for the past two seasons in the Nelson Mandela Bay SAFA regional league – City have ‘taken the bull by its horns’.

The Motherwell soccer team has had a good spell over the years, maintaining a top four finish frequently. The time has since come for the young team to reap the fruits of their good development by gaining promotion to the National Second…

It’s part of the game!

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…

DANNY JORDAAN, IS HE ‘‘N MOOI VAN VER’ OR CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH AS TOKYO SEXWALE AND MORGAN TSVANGIRAI?

From Shakesperian plays to modern day soapies our world is plagued by heroes and villains. Heroes are mostly on pedestal and are never put under proper scrutiny. In SA football Dr Khoza has many hats hence as many critics per hat. On the other corner is Dr Jordaan who is seen as direct opposite and public favourite. He (Jordaan) is often approached with sympathy and as a messiah who can change the face of our game. Sadly COSAFA & CAF know something we do not. The man was there in 1992 when… Continue

Open letter to Orlando Pirates chairman Dr Irvin Khoza

 

Dear Irvin “Iron Duke” Khoza,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am not well. Tears came to my eyes as I read news of the imminent departure of the Orlando Pirates spine in the engine room Onyekachi "Tico" Okonkwo and also the promising goal poacher Takesure “Chisanyama” Chinyama.



I am not exactly certain whether I was crying for Okonkwo or Chinyama or for myself or for our beloved Orlando Pirates or for you in…
