Congratulations Gordon, your worst record for BB has yielded results. You have the best worst start ever.

In Gordon we have a messiah, in Nyawana we have a hero.

Logic tells us if you are number 10 in the class, from previous tests and then in the next text you make you make little improvements and the two people infront of you fail, your average marks increases while the average marks of theirs decreases, thats how it works. But then again talking to dunder heads is a waste of time.

@Mgugudi

Till today you still have not given the bloggers your SA best 11 who you would prefer to represent the country.
We also want you to recommend a coach who you think can do a better job than Gordon.

As long as you have not given us answers to the above, we will not take any of your essays serious.

NB: There is no point in complaining if you cannot recommend or provide a solution to a problem.

I pause......

@ The Phefeni Boy,

You are above average as far as intelligence is concerned amongst zebras. So it bloggles my mind that you did not understand what I said to you.

I said "I will provide you with that team post AFCON". I now hope that you now understand the words coming out of my mouth.

So it'll continue.. No bonuses, no extra cash for Sangweni & Manyisa to pay off their Ackermans accounts.. *sad*

Mamelani le Gorilla.......You are busy farting on every article about Bafana Bafana, complaining like a little girl, saying all sorts of negative things about the national team, yet you don't have any recommendations or solutions........So why don't you complain post AFCON then?

Your football knowledge is so limited you failed to give the bloggers your best 11......what is stopping you from recommending now a coach who in your little head can do a better job than Gordon. Why does it have to after AFCON?

Your long useless essays are starting to bore us...we cannot be reading complains from the same blogger day in day out on every article......

Yekela ukunya if you do not have a toilet paper...Hope you get my drift.
