Khosi alipheli umoya (a Chief Never Gives up) as they say. Saturday was where we saw a bad performance but the fighting spirit was there, hence Khosi prevailed. Advancing to the next stage is massive for Khosi, kodwa performance dololo (non-performance) is very bad.
The crowd never enjoyed the game, the game was characterized by lot of errors from Khosi, offensively and defensively. Luckily they were not punished, knowing Komphela as much as he is pleased with the results, the display is definitely not his type of kwaito music.
This is a given fact, when you play for a big team like Khosi you must represent your country. This Khosi team is profiled by lot of players who are still making a name for themselves and their quality is still questionable judging with their struggle on the pitch, and obviously in how Khosi plays also.
The advantage of having the best keeper (Khune) in the country in their line-up really helps them, an outstanding performance from him and he looks focused, fit and he’s enjoying his game.
Defensively, he (coach) made one change, Mathoho in for Cardozo, which almost backfired because Mathoho looks off form and he is error prone, Khumalo stuck to his primary job and once or twice went up, but there was no positive final product, Moleko struggled and was lucky to finish the game after head-butting Moyo. Gordihno looks ok but can only defend what he sees and never communicates. Young Ntshangase alone gave Khosi defenders ilanga ubafudumezila (Microwaved them with pace).dSo the clean-sheet is not a true reflection of how they defended.
Khosi need quality Midfielders, who can link up play and also dictate the games bafake ushukela to bring back icrowd estadium. Katsande can only defend and it ends there. Baloyi came in for suspended Maluleka, he looked lethargic and lacked the necessary conviction, Lebese is like Ekstein/Twala for me. If Khosi had quality players they would be playing in MDC. They gave away possession in the wrong areas and had no penetration or improvisation from their side, hence Khosi can’t dominate, dictate and control games. Do they still need to prove themselves, or is it a case of Khosi not having anything better than them?
Katsvairo naye hai bafethu! Won’t score goals for Chiefs, first minute, he got 1v1 but he showed no quality missing the target in front of him. As a point of reference, he is too mobile, he can’t keep centre backs in the defensive third.
Happy to see Buchanan coming on and seeing a glimpse of quality, with more game time we will see the best and quality in him. Shabba came in but obviously udonsa ngediesel and Masha hai bafethu akuhlangani.
Next game derby kuzofiwa asazi. Siyaduduza.
