Chiefs, Stars play out stalemate

Posted: 5 March 2008 Time: 21:23

Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars played to a goalless draw in their Absa Premiership clash at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Amakhosi started the game the brighter side and should have gone ahead in ther third minute when David Obua sent his effort high over the bar following a good low cross by Ditheko Mototo.

Platinum Stars almost took the lead in the 12th minute when George Mofokeng headed Koketso Mmotong’s corner straight at Chiefs keeper Itumeleng Khune.

Mabhuti Khenyeza threatened the Stars goal in the 14th minute, but the striker saw his long range effort sail wide of goal.

The best chance of the half fell to David Mathebula in the 35th minute when Khenyeza put in a good cross into the six yard area, but the Mathebula sent his point balnk header straight at Stars’ keeper Tapuwa Kapini.

Chiefs had the ball in the back of the net on the stroke of half-time, when Khenyeza slotted home, but his effort was ruled out following a foul on Kapini.

The remained 0-0 at half-time.

Stars produced a better showing in the second half, with Edward Williams forcing Khune into a superb save in the 51st minute to deny the midfielder’s fierce drive from hitting the back of the net.

The Tycoons were then strangely awarded a free-kick on the edge of Chiefs’ area in the 56th minute after Mototo fouled Luis Renteria inside the area.

Khenyeza should have broken the deadlock in the 68th minute when he pass played clear by substitute Michael Nkambule, but the striker hesitated, allowing Mofokeng to execute a superb tackle to clear the danger.

And although both sides through caution to the wind in the final 15 minutes or so, neither side could penetrate the other’s defence and were resigned to sharing the spoils.

Strees!!! Just Stress from this team...!!!... i am going on a sabatical until Mushin;Obua;Khanyeza and Sibeko leave this team... Kaizer is being fooled by his Son Bobby if he thinks that this team is going places. If you guys watched yesterday's game you will realise that Chiefs play with no Purpose, who substitutions and wrong combinations.... Mushin is weak, like all the European coaches who come to our shores and a lot of money.... SUKA; THIS TEAM IS USELESS!!!!UNNECESSARY STRESS MAN....

Sure svai... For the 1st time bra yam I hear someone who agrees with what I've always said - continue to say - about our SA league: we are only good when we play amongst ourselves, period. In the African continent, SA is one of the minnows, but it's just that we're too ignorant to admit it. We have this belief that our infrastructure will win the games for us - foolish. We have a lot to learn from our fellow African brothers, only if we be true with ourselves...

I kinda' wonder what would happen to the PSL if the likes of Chiefs, Sundowns, etc... would get relegated - horrifying huh. But here's a catch if you're too blind to see: the so called smaller teams (Fr-Stars, Ajx, SS-united, etc) will dominate our league and only then, will we enjoy qaulity football. We can't see that now because we keep hoping that the "big teams" will come to the party - they just don't... Allas!!! But the media as well has a role to play in this regard - ive credit when it's due. The "smaller teams" are not up there by accident, but through hard work & dedication - less can be said of the "big guns" of this country

To all the Amakhosi Amahle, this is an open letter to Kaizer:

Dear Sir,

It pains me to see my favourite team go down like the Titanic. Yes sir, we are going down steadily and slowly. We can not seat and pretend that there is no problem at Chiefs, when it is abundantly clear to all and sundry. Mt team has become a laughing stock at work, News Cafe' and on the various internet blogs. My team has become a JZ of some sorts, being on the news or making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

I've ran out excuses to try and defend the poor performance. The fact that we draw so many games, in itself is an indication of poor performance. Sir, if the status quo remains, I shudder to think what will happen come end of the season. The current situation calls for decisive action from you as the leader. This means if heads should roll so be it. I'm saying let's look at the situation holistically; from the technical staff, players, management, supportes and sponsores. One thing for certain, its us the supporters who are extremely unhappy. Having said all of the above, we don't any excuses but action with effect immediately. The current situation is dire and thus calls for drastic action.


Sir, as the MD and Chairman I urge you to take stock of the current fracas. Stop gunning for players who are out of contract and go to the market and BUY quality players.

To all fans who are laughing at this moment because of what chiefs is going through, ENJOY IT WHILE IT LAST, you never know what will happen to your favourite team in the future. In my mother toungue they say: "Lexi xi nga dya nkava wa munghana, na mundzuku a xi nga ta dya na wena wena na?" which translate (directly word for word) "What eats your friend's navel today, is it not going to eat yours tomorrow?" Mark my words!

Well said Andile...even a blind man can see that all is not well at Naturena. I think everyone involved at Chiefs is responsible in one way or another. When it comes to the playing department, I think our biggest problem is scoring goals. I don't know whether we should blame the strikers or the midfielders for not providing enough supply. It's really confusing.
