10-man Chiefs win

Posted: 23 December 2009 Time: 21:39

Kaizer Chiefs beat AmaZulu 1-0 in a League match at Loftus on Wednesday night.

Chiefs had goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune sent off early in the second half for punching Pere Ariweriyai. The goal was scored by Nkosinathi Nhleko in the first half.

Both sides missed a penalty kick, Marc Van Heerden for AmaZulu and Josta Dladla for Chiefs.

As Chiefs began to find their rhythm, Usuthu had to weather a storm of fairly consistent attacks, nearly going behind in the 16th minute as Siphiwe Tshabalala’s shot was cleared off the line by Pere Ariweriyai.

More was to come from the hosts as Mbongeni Mzimela pushed Nkosinathi Nhleko’s header over the bar and then watched Reneilwe Letsholonyane’s speculative effort go wide.

Nhleko was working hard to give his side the edge and he got his reward in the 36th minute when he beat Mzimela with an effort from a central position.

The visiting side had the perfect opportunity to bring parity to the match just two minutes into the second period when Khune was sent off after punching Areweriyai. A penalty was awarded to AmaZulu.

Chiefs were forced into sacrificing Tshabalala as Arthur Bartman made his way onto the field.

But the score was to stay the same as Marc van Heerden missed with his penalty attempt.

Barman’s next action came in the 58th minute, when he kept out a shot by Dlamini.

Dlamini was certainly the liveliest of the visitor’s attackers and he forced Bartman into another save, this time from a 75th minute header.

AmaKhosi could even have added a late second goal after van Heerden conceded a penalty in the 94th minute, but Josta Dladla missed from the spot.

They can bring any referee, and take off any player, but we will still win games. Next game, give Bartman a red card, and we will still beat Swallows! Shapa Khosi shaapa! As for that thin linesman, pull up your socks, you suck!!

We shall leave it on position 3 for this year and resume our task on 3 Feb 2010. Remember the aim is not to win the title but win at least 90% of our remaining games. To all Amakhosi all over the world (Khosi la Botswana, Zambian Khosi, British Khosi etc...) and all our rivals in the good name of soccer, I wish you a super-funky festive season and a prosperous New Year (2010).

MESHACK.....Happy Birthday on Friday man and may the Almighty give you more and bless you

To all the Kickoff bloggers...

My Christmas wish for you
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totalled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
Much more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish you all this and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a wonderful Christmas

And a happy New Year, too.

Let me also take the this opportunity to wish all of you a happy xmas and prosperous new year.

Congratulation to Sundowns for wonderful display with positive end product..you are the Best in SA.

to Chiefs we are where we are because of you...thax for the four points you gave and good luck for the reminder of the games...you are the biggest tean in SA

To Pirates...what can one say...this thing do happen but the best way is ti learn fron your mistakes...the league has been won in September or October...you are the oldest team in SA

to Super Sport Unit...you made this more interesting...but hey if wasn't protecting our record may you would have the chance to win again but sorry neighbors...you are team with most boring style in SA

Thanks S'bu I know you are not pregnant after Tuesday game..kidding.....but hie it has been a hectic season for both Sundowns and Chiefs considering the bad start they both had to the start of the season.

But only if the Players, Coaches, Management and Sponsors can realise how much do we sacrifice our lives to make this teams what are today...the end product would always not be so stressful

Thanks S'bu I know you are not pregnant after Tuesday game

hehehehehe!!! Trust me man, I even hoped they will play for 2 hours just for a draw

However, you 100% correct for what you are saying. I think some how they (Players, Coaches, Management and Sponsors) do realise that but sometimes they take us for a ride

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE ON THE FORUM...AND DON'T GET YOUR HOPES TO HIGH...even us Downs haven't talked too much about winning the league...Supersports is still occupying the number 1 spot...so it's such behaviour that lead to fans, burning stadia, wanting to shoot the coaches, want our managers and technical staff members to be fired: enjoy being in the positions you are in, and remember if the top team can lose it's possible for your team too to lose; they say nature allows no imbalance, I'm a Chiefs hater (only cos I hate abafazi-they talk too much)...so I'm going to defend myself from this undesired behaviour...Chiefs will not win the league and even the second spot....I HOPE YOU TAKE MY ADVISE AND PREVENT BEING HURT COME END OF THE SEASON...YOU HAVE ACTUALLY DONE NOTHING TO DESERVE THE CROWN...YOU DONATED WITH 6 POINTS TO SUPERSPORTS, GAVE US FOUR POINTS AND WORSE YOU ARE IN THE POSITION YOU ARE IN COS YOU DAY ROBBED SANTOS...AND BELIEVE YOU ME....THAT WILL HAUNT YOU !!! Time has come for fair play....I SEE JOSTA IS A PENALTY SPECIALIST WHAT A SHAME.....
