Chiefs down Arrows

Posted: 28 October 2009 Time: 21:37

Kaizer Chiefs beat Golden Arrows 2-0 in an Absa Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

The goals were scored by Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Kaizer Motaung Jnr.

In the early stage Arrows did not look like a team who had contested a Cup Final a few days earlier, but midway through the first half they began to wane.

On 39 minutes Motaung Jnr. sent a perfectly floated cross towards Letsholonyane, who rose to meet the ball and headed it away from Da Rocha and home to put the home team 1-0 in front.

With half time approaching Arrows produced a moment of magic with quick, one-touch passing which almost came to pay dividends when Richard Henyekane back-heeled the ball into the path of Philani Shange, who forced Arthur Bartman to come up with a big save.

In the 42nd minute Letsholonyane and Motaung Jnr. swapped roles, as the former was able to collect a lob over the Arrows defence by Jimmy Tau and square the ball to the unmarked Motaung Jnr. who was able to gently knock the ball home to give Chiefs a 2-0 lead and also put his name into the history books as his goal was Chiefs 600th in the PSL.

Arrows’ best chance of the match came with 25 minutes remaining as Ntlantla Zothwane was able to react quickly to pick up a miss hit clearance by Chiefs keeper Bartman. Zothwane collected the ball and let fly at goal from 22-yards out; his sweetly hit shot went along the ground beat Bartman but could only hit the bottom of the right hand post.

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the second half was the failure of a few floodlights which got the fans cheering – it was in the final minute of normal time and did not make much of a difference to the players and both teams continued on to complete the game.

General, Nale has a soft cock, he must just take like a man! that is what I am saying! If your dick is soft, you will behave like a woman! Nale is a good player, but he needs to be a man and follow the tactics, like Yeye said after he was named the man of the man, that THEY WERE FOLLOWING THE COACHES TACTICS TO THE TEE,so what was wrong with Nale then? If i was the coach, I was going to even discipline him more, by making him to polish the soccer boots of all the players for the next match!

General, please don't start with me,nX,MORON!

Honestly VV reactions were right and justifyable, last week he raised his concerns about certain players who dont abide to tactics and game plan.

Its about time that players understand that he is here to deliver and win things, he needs them to acieve those goals. what he did to Nale was just a tonguelash and there is nothing wrong with it, tomorrow he will be a better play.

as a manager you need to be tough to your Subordinates some times, for sure Dladla was tonguelashed as well after the game.

I prefer a coach like this.

Michael & those with you. VV did what he had to do.
1. It was just after the interval and he must have pointed out Nale's mistakes in the dressing room. What does Nale do, he continues where he left off with spudity of ignoring instructions.

2. VV clearly came out after the loss against Swallows and attributed to player who don't follow tactical instructions. He said he was going to ring changes in the team.

3. Why don't you think this is what Muhsin had to put up with, hence his touchline tantrums?

4. This Mzanzi mentality is total bull. No coach must go and apologize to the player. For what? It is the same mentality that gets abo-Vilakazi running to the papers bleating "Stoichkov is undermining me". They know people like you will sympathise with the saying these European coaches destroy our players. Total bull if you ask me.

5. What protocol was Doc talking about? The coach deals with the players. Tactics and everything that happens on the field is his jurisdiction. He is in total control of that. And you still wonder why Doc could only make it in the US!

6. Nale is a professional. He is the one who should apologise for being childish.

TO Stambo & Sbusiso

I mean guys chiefs felt that although Mushin was a good coach he was bad when it came to player management as he used to yell at players and get them croosed and angry and that let Bobby to dismissing him but now here's a replica situation of what Mushin used to do and you applaud it. Clearly you're clueless about the whole thing.Do you think Vladimir would be happy if Bobby goes to the media and say he's a bad coach that has been given enough time but can't even fix his back four let alone winning 3games in a row, and in his defence Bobby tlls him it's your job to win trophy's/games for us and you're not delivering. Do you think that is fair?

Ok my brother that might be the case from what you are saying. Let say the coach over reacted but what different that would have make, if he was soft or send flowers to beg him for discipline???

The coach had to be harsh this time around cos being soft did not help on the previous matches. We have to look on the positive side of this......

We have lost or draw games that we should have won and I'm sure the coach and the technical team were talking to the players in a manner that yu are proposing.

Everything has a platform to be addressed at.Even at post match interviews he still stresses that the player must be punished, i mean after all the humilliation ond the embarassment of being viewed by the whole nation crying, he still thinks Nale must be disciplined. Ya neh! just goes to show you how much the guy knows about football

Nale was wrong not to follow the coach instructions...The coach was wrong to shout at him...Both parties were wrong, so what the fuck is the noise all about?

Chiefs fans thinks that they know football than everyone else!! Sis Makhosikazi niyaBhoara!

Respect all the way for you my brother.....

I get your point but my concern is...chiefs have lost and drew yet they were playing good football...fair enough

QUESTION NOW IS......whom would you blame at the end of the season.
Do you think the coach was not talking to the plyers from those previous games???

Lets say he did aproach a player in a manner that you think its ok....what but what happened after that?????

The point of this is we were leading 2-0 and midway second half so the coach was not under immense pressure so why did he act that way? We're not saying he should not discipline the players but we're saying there's a platform for that. and if you can recall there've been games that we lost where we were playing poor foot ball and his comments would be "we played fine and everything will be okay" but here he was leading and on both goals Nale was involved (review the game), Tshabalala and Dladla were nowhere in that game.Believe you me elling at a player infront of his team mates,supporters,opposing team players,technicall staff and the whole nation will do more harm than good to a player.YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK

Yes my brother, but please note that the coach was showing some remorse during his post match interview yet I still believe there was nothing wrong with what he did....just pure discipline with the player.

And to all those comparing this incident with Mushin......I say no.......Mushin was disrespecting players and expect them to apoligise to him

Doctor was just sympathising with the player...I think Thomas was right

That's where you're wrong Sbusiso, Doctor was not just sympathising but he is totally against that as he even said the coach must apologize to Nale and coming from someone who had a similar situation from Dolezar after a game against pirates he said he understands it fully and he knows that it's wrong

I think you're wrong by saying the coach was showing remorse, with words such as "he must be punished" and "what i said is not for the media" is showing remorse then our definition of remorse is the same and on the contrary it's opposite.If you say you don't see anything wrong with what he did then i ask ask should Vladimir not come right on his given mandate by the club and Kaizer shouts at him during a game infront of the players and the opposing coach together with the technicall staff, just infront of the supporters while a game is being watched by the whole nation. Would think that would be right?Yes i compare this to Mushin as both what he did and what Mushin was diong was demoralising the player, so irrespective of apologoly factor the main factor is how does your action affect a player and in both instab=nces it demoralise the player's spirit

guys this issue of VV nd Nale is so simple, u dnt have to bring up silly arguments over a small issue! VV was wrong 2 do what he did 2 abia, @ tht time, he ddnt show any sense of professionalism, as a coach of a big team u wait 4 the match to end, then all the blast up cn be done @ the dressroom or training ground or see him personnally after the match thn show him where he went wrong. sure u wouldnt see any established manager doing wat he did last nite! Abia mite have been wrong like the coach is saying bt there is a proffesional way of tellin him he fucked up!and again if he ddnt play according to the plan then he's jst like another player, he shud b taken off, next time to include him in the 1st xi thts it!
