This is my starting XI:
Kune - Gaxa Khumalo Nthete Masilela - Phala Furman Yeye Shabba - Parker Majoro

Akere Gordon picked 7 of their best? So why not play them together cause no sober thinking person can pick 7 players from the same team on an individual basis, he chose them as a team. If he fails to play all 7 of them then it will further illustrate our point that Gordon is hopeless. He picks a core of a team and then dreams up his own combinations

No dikgacoi please, serero should be introduced in the second half, his more effective when coming in as a sub. Furman, i dont think he has anything special to offer, he is nothing we hav'nt seen before. so i'd rather go for Manyisa becous he is versatile and defends just as well as he can attack, and possesses a brilliant pass.

i like Yeye's ability to pick out runs, controle the game tempo as well as getting into those dangerous areas when needed.

i'd choose to play Chabangu on the wing, for me he is more effective when playing ther then he is coming from the middle. i like how he gets involved in tackles and isnt fearles to chalange for the ball. so my honest opinion is that he is far better on the wing then Tshabalala at the moment. (anyone feel free to take me on, on this one. but its just my opinion.

phala- well there is nothing to say about him really. he has proved himself and deserves a starting berth. he just needs to learn to compose himself and convert his chances.

Mphela is the type of player that will make sure the opposition defenders are kept busy. he has the physic a target man needs to have. and we can all attest that on his day he can cause some damage.

Rantie a.k.a Tiki now this boy is a player that is persistant a true assassin. he has the ability of running rings around the opposition defence. and can pounce on those loose balls in and around the 18yard area. has the convidance to take defenders on. i like comparing him to Kun Agoéro of man city.

with that said and done, i say Ayeye BAFANA BAFANA Ayeye.

4-4-2 system needs a collective effort.
I think if Mr GI can start with two strikers and make sure his half wings are helping out the two donkey players, and as soon the wings get the ball they open up the field and give those quality passes to the strikers and compact the midfield when searching for the ball definitely Mr GI stands a good chance of collecting maximum points tomorrow evening.

If we believe n they believe, sure de holly spirit will come down. The time has come 4 u boys to take a stand nd b counted, to take what's rightfully yours bt just bcos its yours it does not mean dey will just give to you, you have to go into dat field n take it by fire by force. I believe in u boys, In Gordon I trust, now go out there n make your mark. Make us proud boys, we r fully behind u.

I'm proud to be a South Africa!
