Carelse thorn for Chiefs

Brent Carelse up for Kaizer Chiefs clash

Posted: 13 January 2011 Time: 03:40 pm

Ajax Cape Town may be without Terror Fanteni for their top-of-the-table clash with Kaizer Chiefs tomorrow night. But they have a potential match winner waiting in the wings. 

Enter Brent Carelse on a six-month loan deal from SuperSport United with an option for Ajax to make it permanent.   Fresh from winning three League titles in the past four seasons (two at SuperSport and one with Mamelodi Sundowns), Carelse’s experience is just what Ajax need.   But in what position will he contribute best to the Urban Warriors’ cause?   “Recently Carelse had to play on the left and it was not easy because you have to play halfway - as a left wing and a midfielder. But he’s doing well,” says Ajax coach Foppe De Haan.   “I told him that he has to improve … he’s too comfortable on the ball. He likes to take too many touches and I like to play quick passing football - boom, boom, boom.   “We have players already who like to take touches … we have Serero, Doutie and Granwald Scott. This week at training I told Carelse and he surprised me a lot because he understood this quickly. So I think he’ll play a big role in tomorrow’s match.”   The question is what type of role?   With Fanteni suspended for tomorrow night, what are the chances of seeing Carelse play further up field and asked to find a goal or two?   De Haan had this to say: “Last week (against AmaZulu) he missed two or three chances. He needs to be there (up front) but not stay there.   “When it comes to the finishing. A lot of boys here (in South Africa) play at a high speed and lot of chances are missed. It’s too rushed. But Carelse’s reading of the game is okay. I’m happy.”   Reflecting on their recent win away in Ulundi against AmaZulu, De Haan was pleased overall.   “We went behind a goal and I was happy that the boys never panicked,” he says.   “We missed a lot of chances though, but that’s normal with us. I think we should have scored more.”  

De Haan will hope that his team find the goals against a very dangerous Amakhosi side.

Did I hear someone say, "We will thrash (all) the dogs until (all) the owners come out..."?

All the best Khosi. Am leaving Jozi for eKapa today at 10pm.

@Wonder: I'm not one to insult or enjoy annoying other people. When I read your "cut & paste" report from fooball365 it just reminded me of your dream (or was it a wish) that the visiting team would thrash AmaKhosi 2-0 on January 8. I did NOT mean to offend you or anyone. Seeing that you were offended (by being reminded that your wish/dream did not come true) PLESSE take it in your heart to accept my apology. SORRY. I'll try to remember NOT to annoy you again when your tram has lost. 2 more things; in your anger you involved PSL All Tr... in your insults. He has nothing to do with what I (AAA) write. I don't even know him (althiugh I can guess he is from my family - the cabbage farm as the small teams fans call us). As of me being gay, sorry to tell you I'm not sure if I'm one because I don't know anyone for sure who is gay. But whatever a really gay is I don't think they deserve to be compared with people you think are stupid like me. All the same sorry bra. We win some, draw some & LOOSE some.

Chiefs is the biggest Club in Africa – Lewis
Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Stanton Lewis arrived at the Chiefs Village this afternoon after completing medicals and told kaizerchiefs.com that he can’t wait to don the Gold and Black jersey. I am humbled to be here and I can’t wait to play for the biggest Club in Africa. The Club has produced some of the best players in the country and has won many trophies.

I have always wanted to be part of the team where I can win trophies. Joining Chiefs provides me with an opportunity to win things. This is my chance to play the game I know and depending on how things turn out I am happy to make my move permanent. I am humbled by the opportunity the Club has given me.

Domza told me Kaizer Chiefs has brought success on his career that the Club is massive in true sense of the word. its funny that I am already thinking about meeting my former teammates. I wish I can get an opportunity to play.

I grew up at Ajax and I am grateful for what they have done for me. However, I am now a Kaizer Chiefs player and I want to win the league with Chiefs this season.I want to help the Club the way I can to achieve their goals and if it means we meet Ajax...so we have to beat them

Err. Gucci-man a.k.a Macarena-man, mh, mh. You must be in the 'frontline' at your workplace since you've got so much time in your hands seeing you're the 1st to air your views in all stories.

Now tell me....are you a secretary, switchboard operator or you prefer 'marching on the line? Lol.

Either way, neither of these jobs can buy you a Gucci 'pendepende', mh. that's why I prefer calling you Saxon-man or Idlers-man ke! lol.

Ajax please save us from noise pollution! tl, tl.

@ AAA

Dont worry about being honest, ur comments were not offending any one, it is not ur problem that people chose to support small teams and when you tell them they become angry.
We are massive in number and we constitute 3/4 of the entire SA soccer supporters and we are the biggest team in Africa.

@ Wonder

I enjoy reading ur comments broer, though I dont disagree with most them if not all of them, you are well informed, but sometimes your loyalty overshadow your facts, we dont neccessarily comment to make people angry, it is an excitement when you win such an important game.
Dont take things personal, even Motsepe does not even know how you look like, take it easy.

@ game itself
I see a very interesting game tomorrow, both teams have attack minded aproach, but one thing for sure is Chiefs will score
one more than Ajax. 3 points all the way to the farm in Naturena.

Khosi all the way.

Kaizer Chiefs is the biggest in our counrty South Africa,not in Africa.People must get their facts right before they put pen to paper.How can a team be the biggest in Africa when they are currently ranked 38 by CAF?

Vuvu the reason why Chiefs might be 38 in Africa is because they are not participating in continental competition. The truth is the only teams that can give Chiefs a run for their money in Africa are Ahly and Zamalek of Egypt and Esperance of Tunisia but Chiefs can beat all these teams. Ahly was the best team three season ago not anymore. As for Zamalek they are nolonger a force they used to be. Chiefs have beaten them in the inguaral African Champions cup (now Champions league) for a South African team, that was in 1992. The score was 2-1 at the old FNB stadium. As for TP Mazembe they are not a good team, they are winning because of bad pitches in their country and the same goes for other teams in the so called top 35 teams in Africa. South African teams can beat all these teams in a good pitch any day. The PSL is better than any other league in Africa. Vuvu my friend don't read too much into this rediculous African club ratings.

Same report, same reporter BUT 2 conflicting statements;

(1) Fanteni MAY miss tomorrow's game.

(2) Fanteni IS suspended for tomorrow's game.

Why first use the word "MAY" when the player is suspended? NXE....!!!

@Thikhathali: Ndo livhuwa.... I hope they don't call you names. Until today I did NOT know that a "GAY" is a person who support a big club and reminds a supporter of a small club about his dream (that remained a drram) and could not come true.

Nne nga 10 ndi livha Kapa. Michiel & Alex told me that dogs will be beaten until the owners come out....lol

Mr Editor,why are blocking my response to Pierre,do you want keep people ignorant of the facts???

posted: 11:56 pm
Pierre,with due respect,i beg to differ with you.Firstly,the game between KC and Zamalek in 1992 was ultimately won by Zamalek in Cairo by a goal to nil and they went through on an away goal rule.
Secondly,to say TP Mazembe on wins on their rough pitch,is devoid from the truth,you know how they played recently in the World Club Cup,i think you must give credit where its due.
Thirdly,i agree our league is big financially but when it comes to the field of play,we are far below standard.There is No team here that can beat the teams you mentioned in a competative game(Iam talking about the Vodacom Challange,where teams used to come here for a holiday)
Lastly,i would like give you an advice and say dont these ratings ridiculous,because that is tantamount to ignorance to you and our fellow South Africans.This is on of the reasons why we lost two places in terms of represantation in the CAF Champions league for this coming season.

corrections Vuvu- there is no holiday for African teams where it involves money. Remember how that Congolese team that got whipped by Chiefs for the Kudud Horn cried foul all 6 months long. To this day they still think they deserved to win that Kudu and the money associated with it- phela these African teams don't have money and those Vodacom challenge peanuts were worth something to them.

Buy the way, Chiefs non-participation in Africa is matter of choice- there is democracy in Naturena, not in some totalitarian clubs where the chairman has to be thanked as if he was some emperor "uber ales!"

Firstly,Chiefs were banned by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) from competing in African club competitions until 2009 after their abrupt withdrawal from the 2005 CAF Confederation Cup.This is after they were knocked out of the CAF Champions league.You should know that,So i doubt if it was a matter of choice or just poor judgement from their management.

Secondly,A friendly match will always be such,whether there is money at stake or not,it will always be a friendly,no matter who you are playing,whether its Barca,Manu,TP Mazembe,Al Alhy etc.You cannot compare the two.You dont acculate points on your Confederation for playing friendly games whether its Vodacom Challange or whatever you can call it because its not sanctioned by your Continental Federation.
