Katlego Mphela wins it for Sundowns

Posted: 22 September 2010 Time: 21:48

Mamelodi Sundowns continued their impressive start to the season with a 1-0 win over Santos on Wednesday night.

The Tshwane side were in control throughout the game against a Santos’ side whose priority much of the match was not to concede – they did not show too much attacking ambition in the first half especially.

They did have an early chance, but Sekou Camara was unable to profit from an Erwin Isaacs cross due to an untidy bit of control.

But Sundowns also had their opportunities early on as Tshepo Motsoeneng was forced to tip efforts from Katlego Mphela and Mathew Pattison over the bar.

Following that early flurry there was not much action as the Peoples’ Team remained solid in defence and frustrated all of Sundowns’ attacking forays.

But just before the break the Brazilians finally broke through when Katlego Mphela unleashed a grass-cutter from the edge of the area after creating space for himself.

Santos failed to really take the game to Sundowns after the break, despite needing to equalise.

As the game moved into the last 15 minutes it was Sundowns who had the better chances to score as Surprise Moriri and Mphela dragged efforts wide, while Franklin Cale was unable to score with only Motsoeneng to beat from close range, the keeper making a good save.

Santos ended the game with 10 men after Buitemelo Mafoko received a second booking.

i watched Pattison closely yesterday, he changed his playing style no more attacking, he go back more than forward how many passes did he loose, he seems as the busy player as he keep on playing back pass and collect it, how many balls has he lost. if anyone is adversing him to play back pass the style played by Sibaya in the national team he is on the wrong track.Suprise,Esrom and Pattison went back more than going forward. the game was dull, we should have taken to our advantage the respect we got from santos. According to my judgement Pattison doesnt deserve the bafana jersey.

Solomon said we are a national team . then VV will say we are Woorld eleven, he he he.

Guyz how many foreigner did we sign? and the tactics last night should not be played again. we want attcking football not long ball and counter attack. We are shoe shine and Piano team not headless chicken/finder finder team

Mr editor what is this, santos should protest, now it start to show that ppl hate downs so much, or my club has provided this team sheet. It goes to show that you dont have to belief everything the media says.

Mr editor whats wrong with you, bad day in the office, eish downs will make ppl resign in journalism, Mr Editor since you dont know what bad to write about downs please write about chiefs, since your getting paid to praise them and bad mouth downs.

Here is the Topic. Is Kaizer able to afford his on shares or will he ask Pres Motsepe to assist financially.

There you go you have something to write about.

There is an inverse relationship between Sundown's improving performance and the comments of Fried chips fans in kickoff. The higher sundowns climb, the less the chips fans' comments become. So mathematically this can be stated as follows:

where sw is sundowns' wins, k is the proportionality constant and cc is the comments of the fried chips fans. The fried chips fans' comment increase depends on the failure of the Brazilians.
