of all the games we'v played so far, this one scares me, mhhh, but u know what i trust the boys to pull up a fight like they always do, so win or loose i just want to see the players wanting the game, i want them to dominate possesion because without the ball they cannot score, rotation of squad?? i dont know Mr Baxter knows better, all i can do is watch and hope it works, this is football and nothing is written in stone, 90 minutes are all that matters,

join us as we.....

Understand this my dear I am the interpreter of dreams; "dikwena wer leading and svayisa started ahead of mathoho" = Dikwena is going to give chiefs defence a hard time....."then i was woken up by my boyfriend" = your boys(the ones you love) will wake you up from such a nightmare via brilliantly beautiful goal from Stuart Baxters "IAF" = Interchangeable Attacking Five...........Asjiki thina....Ahi thleleli ndhzaku.....Kurhula na Rirhandzu
