New teamates- Mata and Rooney

By Daniel Chokoe

Chelsea have accepted a £37million bid for Juan Mata and immediately released the Spanish
international to join Manchester United to complete the most dramatic deal of the transfer
window.

Mata will undergo a medical on Thursday at United before completing the move that will see him more than double his £70,000-a-week Chelsea salary at
Old Trafford.

Mata’s signing will add some quality into the toothless Man Utd side that bowed out of the League cup last night courtesy of a penalty shootout defeat by Sunderland.

The Spanish international is by far David Moyes’ biggest transfer and will in a way make things simple for Chelsea as United will face all other top 4 teams in the league except Chelsea, so it may have been a masterstroke by The Special One to ensure that they can claim the Premier league title.

Only time will tell though!

Bafana Bafana- The untalented cheese boy

By Daniel Chokoe

I remember growing up we played a lot of football, having a proper ball to play with was a priviledge. The ball would usually be owned by one of the boys from the rich families, I was also the unfortunate one because although I was brought up in a middle class family they used to buy me football merchandise because I was talented.

“Cheese boy”,a name used to refer to a boy from a rich family would have the football merchandise but no talent whatsoever; so whenever we needed to play a game we would start by playing in the first game then substitute him in the games that follow. We made an exception to include him in our game because we needed his merchandise to play, we let him play the first game to remind him how untalented he is after the poor performers he would then sit and watch the rest of the games as talented players showcase their skills.

Sadly, the exact thing is happening to Bafana Bafana, because they have the best facilities in the continent they get to host tournaments and automatically qualify to play as hosts. When the tournaments are reaching the climax stages the bow out, and watch other nations as they claim glory on their own turf. After every tournament they go back to the drawing board, I am starting to ask myself just how many drawing boards have been used by our national team. Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula has labelled them “useless individuals” as they were inhilated by a weak and inexperienced Nigerian side to be knocked out of the CHAN tournament. I think the question we should start asking ourself as a nation is : Do we have enough talent to compete with other nations or are we just cheese boys with no talent?

Kaizer Chiefs have signed midfielder George Maluleka on a three-and-a-half-year contract from SuperSport United.

The midfield maestro is expected to help chiefs retain their championship and provide some much needed steel in the middle of the field during their participation in the champions league.

Amakhosi is reported to be in talks with Sundowns on the availability of Edward Manqele, they will look to capture his signature to fill the void that will be left by the contract rebel Lehlogonolo Majoro who is thought to be on his way to Supersport United.
