1. SAFA on Wednesday announced Belgian Hugo Broos as the new head coach of Bafana Bafana

What do you make of this appointment?

2. Speaking of Bafana Bafana coaches

On Thursday SAFA officially confirmed the departure of Ntseki following a meeting in which the parties reached an agreement to ‘amicably’ terminate the contract.

“The South African Football Association (SAFA) together with coach Molefi Ntseki have officially agreed to part ways amicably, following the senior national team’s failure to qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon),” read a statement from the association.

“SAFA would like thank Ntseki for his contribution to the association over the years.”

How would you summarise Ntseki’s tenure as Bafana Bafana?

3. On Tuesday, Kaizer Chiefs lost – again. This time to 14th placed TTM,

what did you make of the game and do you think Kaizer Chiefs will finish in the Top 8 this season?

Same story for Kaizer Chiefs, mistakes lead to goals, We can just cut my audio from what I said about them last time they lost…

Will they make the Top 8?

4. Another struggling Soweto giants Orlando Pirates have only won three of their last 10 games in all competitions,

Is it time for Orlando Pirates to let go of their coach?

5. Let’s take a flight overseas where both Manchester City and Chelsea won their Uefa Champions League semi-final games 2-0 against PSG and Real Madrid respectively.

City won their tie 4-1 against the Parisians whilst The Blues won theirs 3-1 against Los Blancos

What did you make of both semi-final games?

6. Jose Mourinho will take over as Italian Serie A side Roma head coach next season,

After his disappointing showing at Spurs, why do you think Roma hired Jose?

7. Quick Hits!

7.1 Going into the final four games of the season, Sundowns are on 54, whilst 2nd placed Amazulu are on 50 but Sundowns have a game in hand, It’s looking more likely that Downs are going to win it all, or do you still think Amazulu could spring a surprise?

7.2 Manchester United will meet Villareal in the Europa League final after both teams overcame AS Roma and Arsenal respectively

Have they deserved finalists?

7.3 Weighing in on SAFA appointing Hugo Broos as Bafana Bafana coach, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi said [quote] I think we have had too many foreign coaches [close quote]

Does he have a point?

7.4 CAF announced on Thursday that the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers were postponed until September due to the global Covid-19 pandemic

Besides the pandemic, should this be seen as a good or bad thing for Bafana Bafana and their preparations?

7.5 In four months at Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel has now beaten Zinedine Zidane, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Diego Simeone twice, José Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti! And without conceding a single goal either in those seven matches.

His contract is until the end of the season…

Should they just give him the new contract now even before the champions league final?

7.6 Pep Guardiola dedicated Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final win to former players like Joe Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany & David Silva saying [quote] “I want to share it with all of them because without them it can not be possible to be here.” [close quote]

Is it a big deal or not a big deal that he didn’t mention Yaya Toure?

Topics on today’s show!

1. Pitso Mosimane is not interested in the Bafana coaching job,

Is Pitso being unpatriotic or is he well within his rights to not be interested in working with SAFA again?

2. Speaking of the Bafana Bafana job, TimesLIVE has reported that Philippe Troussier and Carlos Queiroz tell Safa they want the Bafana Bafana coaching job.

Which of the two would you like to take Bafana Bafana over?

3. After a less than impressive start to his Kaizer Chiefs coaching career, Gavin Hunt still insists he can win with Kaizer Chiefs.

He said on KickOFF: “the club has brought me here to win trophies, and they will win trophies with me”

How confident are you that Gavin Hunt is the right man to end Amakhosi’s drought?

4. Let’s move overseas to the Champions League.

In the quarter-final second legs, PSG lost 0-1 to Bayern but held on to win the game 3-3 on the away goals rule, Chelsea went down 0-1 to Porto but won the tie 2-1 on aggregate. Last night Liverpool couldn’t overcome their 3-1 first-leg deficit when they drew 0-0 with Real Madrid and Manchester City beat Dortmund 2-1 again to win the tie 4-2 on aggregate.

What did you make of all the games and results?

5. In the Champions League semi-final, Chelsea will go up against Real Madrid and Manchester City will lock horns with PSG,

who are your favourites to make it to the final and why?

6. There are a couple of very good players in this year’s free-agent class: Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Sergio Aguero, David Alaba, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez.

Which players will be the most sort after and by which teams?

7. Quick Hits

7.1 PSG star Neymar has confirmed he is set to renew his contract with PSG saying: “This (renewal with PSG) is no longer an issue. Obviously, I feel very comfortable and at home here at PSG. I feel happier than I was before.”

Is it a wise move by Neymar to stay at PSG?

7.2 Recent Ballon d’Or Feminin winner Megan Rapinoe has made an emotional plea to Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and other football stars to become involved in the fight against racism.

How can the two GOATS help?

7.3 Speaking of racism, EPL clubs are set to boycott social media for a full matchday weekend to protest against racial abuse,

Do you think this boycott will make a difference?

7.4 Reports from Italy say Manchester United may pursue a swap deal with Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba, surprisingly enough the Manchester United fans on social media are not for the idea…

Do you think it would be a good move for United?

7.5 Sticking with Pogba, The French superstar signed a deal with Amazon and set his first project with the streaming giant: A documentary series about his life, titled The Pogmentary.

Out of 10, what’s your excitement level?

7.6 Sundowns host Orlando Pirates today in the Quarter-final of the Nedbank Cup,

Who do you got?

What Should Be Considered A Less Than Crappy First Season For Jose Mourinho?

Breakups are never easy. I remember when I got dumped by my girlfriend, it was one of the saddest days of my life, I was 10. She found a new boyfriend the next week, the guy happened to be my best friend. I got over it, but I’ve been wishing death on that prick ever since (you’ll be glad to know he is still alive, according to Facebook). Tottenham did the same thing my girl did to me when they parted ways with their manager of five years Mauricio Pochettino. But, instead of waiting a week, they waited around 12 hours to show off their new lover: Jose Mourinho

In fairness, Tottenham stank over the past 12 months. Spurs had won just six of their 24 Premier League matches this calendar year.  It was time for Poch to go. Manchester United legend and now talking head on Sky Sports described the Tottenham and Jose Mourinho union as a “marriage of convenience” saying, “Mourinho needed to get back into the Premier League to re-establish himself. Levy needed someone who could get the football club quickly back up to a level that is acceptable and into the Champions League. This is a marriage of convenience.”
