Mamelodi Sundowns lose to SuperSport United

Posted: 12 May 2012 Time: 16:49

Sibusiso Zuma’s 79th-minute goal gave SuperSport United victory and put his former team Mamelodi Sundowns out of the League title race.

Another former Sundowns man, Franklin Cale, created the goal for Zuma with an excellent run and low cross, but was then sent off and will now miss the Nedbank Cup Final against Sundowns.

Sundowns started well in this intense Tshwane derby. In the first minute, Teko Modise tried to chip goalkeeper Ronwen Williams who was just off his line, but the 19-year-old made the save.

Soon afterwards, Nyasha Mushekwi sent a header over the bar as The Brazilians began asking some questions of their city rivals.

Then in the 27th minute Matsatsantsa came close as Sameehg Doutie’s free-kick was palmed into safety by Wayne Sandilands.

And in the 32nd minute it was Williams’ turn to make a save as he palmed away Punch Masenamela’s powerful shot.

Katelgo Mphela was introduced after the hour-mark and his first contribution was an attempted volley in the 76th minute, but he was way off target and summed up the day for Sundowns. Johan Neeskens’ team had more of the ball possession, but were woeful in the final third of the field.

In the 79th minute, Zuma rounded off Cale’s run and cross by getting in front of his marker to slot home from close range.

Sundowns came close in the 82nd minute when Esrom Nyandoro’s powerful drive rebounded off the upright and in the 87th minute Mushekwi put his header wide of the far post.

Then Cale was red carded for a silly tug on Mokoena in the dying minutes of the match before Surprise Moriri put a shot wide of goal with less than a minute of optional time to go.

These fraudsters we call players are busy robbing Motsepe of his hard earned cash. I hate Sundowns players. There is no leader here and also no sense of urgency. They play as if they're waiting for Sanral strike. Fucken spoilt brats. Nx!

Nxh, Nxh, nxh, uyazi...these donkies. Mr Neeskens, we give you 2012/2013 to win the Premiership, and if you fail, you must pack and go.
And also, we need you to beat and if need be, bit SSU convincingly on the 26 of May because should you fail, I am afraid things are looking up for you. Again, what is it that you see in Maponyane that we do not see? MaDawana, let us be patient. Things will certainly work out!

To all 200 Yellow Fans,

Its been a pleasure having competition from a capable team like yours, its just that God like it for the Pirates. At Pirates, we look forward to having an even better competition from you. I just hope & pray that you do not dismantle this team by buying new players as usual without thinking, it will set you back as you are already in full steam for the next season, i.e. Pirates & KC will have new coaches while the likes of Swai have reached their once in 3 decades summit, SSU is not as compact as before, FFS will decline due to poaching of players & the rest are plain useless.

You deserve an applause....

@ Champ Nespray,

The president of Sundowns when he spoke of the dream with a lady was like a young boy who's is maturing for the 1st time, massing himself in his sleep due to excitement....but the dream is now over, he has just realised that he is a man while Pirates is scruing everyone in the next room.
