Good news, not just a loan but a permanent move. This guy is not in any standard required at the Galacticos.

This boy is talented and South African haven't seen much of his talent . This boy can play , he just needs to be more confident .....

It was long overdue, this guy does not play like a Galaxy since he arrived at the smooth sailing ship, he was playing very well at Stars. the pressure of donning this magnificent jersey is too heavy on him. Maybe a loan spell would do him good. The next player that should leave is the ever wastefullMasuku. Whichever mutiman this guy is using must be strong, he must have got it from some shimane residing at Dube hostel but allerge that he stays in Phefeni.

The reason they shut down their development is not because of age cheats...its because their Yebo Yes franchise has extended its structure in greater heights.....

Arrows...KZN Branch

Wits.......Greater Gauteng Branch

Free State Stars.....Lesotho/Free State Branch..

If they win the league ths season they have proposed to change their name to "Bidvest Orlando Golden Stars"

This guy needs time, most of the Bucs supporters didnt like Manyisa but look at him now, it took more then two season for him to get the nickname Acccccceeeee, give Makola a chance he's good, unlike Mlungisi Professor Gumbi we once had who is now nowhere to be kicked when found
