Honestly Gordon is a visionless coach, calling back old failers like Lance Davids and others will never help us to grow or development. Its not that am suprised thou, he is useless i remember when he was Bucs coach, he never played the late Manyathela because he believed on his madalas. This beautiful and great country is going no where in terms of football as long as we are coached by the likes of Gordon and led by Nematandani's. Tefera Lamensee will continue to tells us how good we are in hosting tournaments but when it comes to qualifying its another story.
