Team KICK OFF

FELLOW FOLLOWERS OF THE SOWETO DERBY: .... I hate to say this but it is the living truth....Saturday is meant to be the derby. Years ago, days leading up to this game, were being counted, people used to look at the calendar and mark off each day that passes. Stomachs were running, people would have butterflies.. let alone the players...Years ago, a Soweto derby would be the decider who win the League or Cup championship and tournaments.No more is this much anticipated game, bringing the country to a standstill, no more is this game dividing the House of Parliament and moreso the the ruling partry caucus. Perhaps one need not look far to find reasons- just last week or so, both the Soweto giants- Kaiser Chiefs and Orlando Pirates were brushed aside by unfancied clubs, Swallows and Supersporet United.These days, many of the PSL clubs no longer have jitters when they are about to face either Chiefs or Pirates- instead these teams are in mean mood and the confidence will be at an all time high. This coming Saturday- Chiefs take on Pirates in the season's first round PSL league match. Both clubs go to this game at the back of defeats and the result of this game will in essence not make a major change to the current stadning of the PSL log. It's a sad reality but one that has to be accepted. That is how i feel about this game currently.. Even my wife is begging me to instead watch the Blue Bulls-Cheetahs Currie Cup final !!!
