Kaizer Chiefs Made A Horrible Error By Appointing Giovanni Solinas

Kaizer Chiefs have only won three of their 11 games in the league under Giovanni Solinas. After their loss to Orlando Pirates, it’s clear that Amakhosi made a mistake by hiring the Italian coach.

Giovanni Solinas Kaizer Chiefs

Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rhulani Mokwena told reporters earlier last week.

“…losing Steve Komphela was a big loss for Chiefs from a technical perspective and the type of leader that he is as well as the tactical acumen that he possesses.”

What he meant to say was: “Giovanni Solinas doesn’t know what he is doing.”

Which is true.

Is Anybody Excited About El Clasico

The El Clasico is this weekend and I’d be lying if I said I was hyped. Without Ronaldo and Messi is this game is going to be a snoozefest?

Barcelona host Real Madrid at the Camp Nou on Sunday in the 272nd El Clasico.




This would have been the part of this post where I’d show you my excitement by the number of unnecessary exclamation marks I put after every sentence.

Why Do Our Players Return Home So Quickly?

Leaving home is never easy that’s why most of us millennials never do.

We don’t pay rent or clean our rooms, and the refrigerator remains stocked at no extra cost to us.

We are referred to as the Boomerang Generation.  Wikipedia says the Boomerang Generation are young adults graduating high school and college in the 21st century. They are so named for the percentage of whom choose to share a home with their parents after previously living on their own—thus boomeranging back to their parents’ residence.

Soon to die Canadian-American motivational public speaker Brain Tracy says:

“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”

In the world of football, leaving your comfort zone (i.e. your parent’s house) is when you and your agent (who is looking to make a healthy profit of labour) decide it’s time for you to make a move overseas (i.e. move out the house so he can jerk off in peace).

Are We Sure Stuart Baxter Isn’t The Right Man For Bafana?

Can Stuart Baxter be the guy that turns the Bafana Bafana ship around and build a culture of winning football in South Africa?

It would be understandable if you thought Stuart Baxter isn’t the best fit for the Bafana job. Firstly, he was hired after SAFA fired beloved Shakes Mashaba over some bull shit and secondly, his team’s performance in the World Cup qualifiers was embarrassing, to say the least. As you know an international coach is judged on whether his side qualified for the World Cup or not, rather than how many irrelevant soccer nations he can beat up in the Cosafa Cup.
