Santos beat Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 22 April 2012 Time: 16:49

New Santos coach Maart Nooij recorded an impressive win on debut, leading The People's Team to a 2-1 victory against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.

By the same token, it was a third successive loss for Chiefs caretaker coaches Doctor Khumalo and Donald Khuse, who were appointed following the sacking of Vladimir Vermezovic.

The first half saw Santos pinned back in their own half for the most part, unable to get any rhythm going in their play, ensuring Chiefs keeper Ithumeleng Khune was a virtual spectator.

The chances that did come fell to Chiefs, but they were not able to make proper use of their opportunities.

Siphiwe Tshabalala was doing his best to make things happen, getting in a couple of decent crosses and linking nicely with his team-mates around the box.

Lehlohonolo Majoro also had a few chances on goal, but he shot over the bar in the 11th minute and then shot weakly in the 39th minute after Lucky Baloyi had seen his shot strike the defender.

The second half was off to an action packed start as Santos went in front immediately after the break, thanks to a Salmaan King header from Thabiso Ntloana’s cross.

In the 47th minute it was 2-0 to the home side as Eleazar Rodgers showed good composure to pick out the far corner of the net after a superb through ball from Tyren Arendse.

For the remainder of the half the Cape side very much found themselves on the back foot as they faced one Chiefs attack after another.

With 20 minutes to go Chiefs were right back in the game when George Lebese nipped in to score after a mix-up between Nasief Morris and Wayne Arendse.

The pressure continued to come from AmaKhosi in the final stages of the match, but the home side managed to repel everything that came at them.

Mr Editor, are you consoling Nurse Khumalo by saying 'sorry' because I saw him with a tissue wiping his tears?

Who's the laughingstock now? Family Business Club fans have big mouth like their neighbour Rats. Chips favourate so called soccer analysts (e.g teethless Mark Williams) keep on saying Chips don't loose 3 games a row, what is this now? Downs forever irrespective we gave away the lig to Rats. Let a good team win the lig.

There comes a time in life ppl shud cut their loses, talking about loses CHIEFS especially the technical team must just concede defeat!!! I just wish it was possible for COSMOS to get another chance at CHIEFS so get out of that area. You know we have lost 2 games and needed a win but instill keep players who are not playing well like abo PARKER, anyway SANTOS always gave us a hiding so no need to complain, please get rid of defensive midfielders wats a point of losing while having players in the middle who can't contribute to the team's success, KATSANDE doesn't have a please in that team we just need to play more offensive football than this 5 defensive players...I guess Sundoms will hope to get something too but unfortunately they are jst as useless, tltltltltltl tltltltltltl....so Sundoms should expect to donate points to us...eish there goes our top 8 spot!!!!

Kaizer must buy Khompela out of his contract and let him work with the team now. The end of the season will be too late. K4L until Khoza grow one teeth at least.

When VV highligted Tau's cowishness he was crucified. In the last 3 games Tau has played his role in proving VV correct. As far as the 3-headed-coaching foolishness, I reserve my comment because I would be stooping low to their level of thinking.


This team is useless. Its fans will blame Bobby, blame muti blame the stadium, blame the madam whose kuku'flafour no longer interest referees, 3-2-1 go.

Rise Khosi Rise.
