mxm pierats always overloading their midfield while they r struggling to score goals, bt i c dey also overloading their striking dept with cows.

anyway teams r busy beefing up their squads while the arrogant bobby is busy with musona deal only nd saying the rest they will c when they open 4 preseason, mxm. ai mara chiefs with bobby incharge ke nyoso fela.

Good box to box midfielder playing same style with Oupa "isghebengu esinga khuzeki Manyisa,playing together they can cause havoc.He reminds me of Macarena from Pj stars during hs days at kwa Mahlobo.

U'll be surprised who actually signed those players. RDS only had a say in the acquisition of Miyeni; Masalesa and Phungwayo. He influenced their move to Bree taxi rank FC whilst still at Wits.

Sometimes I hate it when Orlando Pirates signs lot of player, that makes other players or the same new players get benched. Look now the likes of W.Twala, J.Motshegwa, M.Moholo, B.Nzunga are possibly on transfee. M.Seanego, M.Gumede and other young stars will be loaned out. I dont see any reason to sign other players while you have the best. Anyway is to beef up the lacking dipartments only not new IX.

Chiefs is not that ambitious club anymore . They may not even sign that Musona . The Coach feels he is well armed with Nkatha who bloody cost us the League . As long as Baxter is the Coach , we will win nothing and sign nothing because he says he does not need to sign more than two playas as if we are loaded with super stars when we have less than average playas like Nkatha and Rusike

Edgar Manaka......the game is never fair...we have players like Gabuza playing for big teams like Orlando Pirates when classy and talented players are playing their trade in the NFD.....ja neh.


Manaka what a player?........he will be a good catch for Bucs....I hope he signs for them than for Sundows.
