Defenders: Lucky Lekgwathi, Siyabonga Sangweni, Ayanda Gcaba, Patrick Phungwayo, Bheki Nzunga, Happy Jele, Thabo Matlaba

@Timitayol,

1.Why are the bunch of stars at naturena not qualifying to play in the Champions league?
2. When last did these stars of Naturena play in the champions league?

Answer:
1. Because they are the real bunch of cows failing to win the domestic championship
2. More than 7 years ago.

Now this is where semi-final mandates are possible...

What a formidable team....

I'd just like to say to the boys...: 2013 is gonna be a very hectic & stressful year...

Come Champions league South Africa is expecting....

Come 2014 World Cup qualifiers South Africa is expecting...( we are hopeful that this AFCON will be last we see off the current generation of failures...)

Without stating the obvious, unfortunately 2013 Confed cup will be an unwanted rest period....

The Ghost expects the formality of the league as well as the 3 cups 2013 has on offer....

Our youngsters will be needed for 2016 Olympic qualifiers....

It's going to be a tough & momentus years for The Dream Team....

All there is left to say is that.... as much as The Dream Team has bitten off a huge chunk, History is still there for the taking Boys....

Roger That! Let me prophesise...

Moses Mabhida will be the First Leg of our CAF Champs League Final; or should I say second and final leg (And by leg I'm not referring to Nyawana's right leg you dimwit tortoises).

What a kick in the groin it'll be to our haters from next door when we lift this trophy in front of a packed Moses Mabhida Stadium while the fellow Bucs supporters and all the First Class (you can pay for school but you can't buy class) dignitaries celebrating with us.

On that evening we don't want no Zebras around or anything yellow or dark yellow (they confuse dark yellow for gold forgetting their jersey colour is the same colour yamasimba anenyongo). Hence we say these animals from NaZoorena bakhuluma inyongo!

Zebras, you are most NOT welcome to the Party of the Century! Last but not least, WHAT IN HELL'S KITCHEN IS MABENA DOING THERE? Yeses........

Up the Bucs...

excuse me Kickoff but exactly why should we give a f**k? This team is not even from south africa for goodness sake. Last time i checked its either from zambia or ivory coast. PS : we all know these gorillas will be eliminated by a club from either chad , mauritania and madagascar. So please spare us.

'Good team that can emulate the success of 95'

Although i still feel we need a lethal GOALSCORER upfront,NOT A STRIKER.

Someone who is ruthless infront of goals..especially in Africa.

Yes Takesure might be that GOALSCORER but there's an element of laziness from him.

Good Luck Champs...
