With a 13 points lead at the top of the log, Kaizer Chiefs have put one hand on the trophy and they have done that with four games to spare as they are left with four games to be crowned champs, however with football being unpredictable it might happen that the current champions Mamelodi Sundowns still believe they can retain though it will take a miracle from them and hoping chiefs fail to collect maximum points in their next amakhosi games.
With the 2 teams still to play each other chiefs doesn’t need to win its games in order to be crowned champions they only need a point against Sundowns then the race is over even if downs win all remaining and chiefs lose all remaining, the question is will chiefs take the league against sundowns or before meeting Sundowns on the 29th at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium in Attridgeville.
However if you have been supporting chiefs since the 80’s you wouldn’t be celebrating knowing that chiefs once threw it away from the similar situation, when they needed 1 point from 4 games under the leadership of Ted Dumitru. They went to lose all four games and giving jomo cosmos the championship, however the situation is different this time around as the men from naturena have lost just 2 games and conceded 11 goals from 26 games its unlikely that the chiefs will fall before the promised land of milk and honey. PSL Pretoria or Phefeni soccer league?
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens was left disappointed following a 3-1 home defeat to PSL champions Orlando Pirates on Wednesday evening.
The Brazilians, who are now at the bottom of the log, were undone by goals from Thulasizwe Mbuyane, Takesure Chinyama and Sifiso Myeni, while Edward Manqele netted a late consolation at Loftus Stadium.
Neeskens said, “I am disappointed, like them (the supporters), the club, the players…everybody is.
“Losing 3-1 at home is not good. We started well, a lot of movement and passing, playing forward. But in some parts of the game we were very naive.
“How we conceded the first goal, we were ball-watching. For the second one there was a moment in midfield, with two players going for the ball, we were too nice. You can’t always be nice. I don’t say you have to kick the guy, but when the ball is there, you must sometimes take the ball and the man.”
Question is : Can Mamelodi Sundowns bounce back from the seback and make it to the Top 8 by May 2013?
