Transfer Window: How Kaizer Chiefs are doing so far

Written By Themba Khumalo on Monday, July 4, 2011 | Monday, July 04, 2011

It’s been over a month since the transfer window opened and I must say our beloved Amakhosi have been very busy, but the question I pose is; HOW WELL ARE WE DOING SO FAR? Here’s my two cent’s worth analysis:
DEPARTURES: Valery Nahayo, Thabang Rooi, Staton Lewis, Nkosinathi Nhleko, Tshifiwa Mbooi, Punch Masenamela.
NEW SIGNINGS: Tefu Mashamaite, Brent O’Brein Lawler, Lionel Keegan Ritchie and Lehlohonolo Majoro.
The main man ( Nahayo ) at the heart of our defense last season left for a big money overseas transfer and I must commend the club for moving swiftly to find a suitable replacement in Mashamaite, Wits’ finest defender and captain. At his age (26yrs) he is the man who could serve us for many years to come. After securing Mashamaite’s signature we also got another for the future (Brent Lawler), even though I don’t know much about the lad, he has all the time to develop since age is on his side. I know most Khosis are angry at the fact that Sangweni is joining that other team from Orlando/Mayfair/Parktown (Not even sure anymore) as they thought he was the best center back we could’ve ever signed, I aint worried vele that man is old and he was too expensive for a player of his age anyway.
Mbooi didnt feature much last season and its good that management let him go try his luck somewhere else and so did Thabang Rooi who never got back into the team from a loan deal. I know the still most talked about issue among Amakhosi faithful is the sale of Punch Masenamela, the teams most improved player of last season. A good player he is but I believe we made the good deal out of him as “he wanted out” and at R3.5m (reports) it was a deal hard to reject. We had already enforced at left-back with the 21 year old Ritchie, a very clever defender and a good crosser of the ball, not forgetting that Jambo used to do a 1st grade job in the absence of Punch last
Not a lot shuffling has been done in the midfield this winter except for the departure of Mathebula, who never got back from loan and a contract extension of our “youngster” Gerald Sibeko. And there’s a bittersweet taste to not hearing any news about Shabba’s overseas move. He deserves it but having him in the team for next season will also be a big plus factor.
And the most exciting signing so far has to be MAJORO!!! We all know what he’s capable of and I must say well done to management for making the @ happy. Still at that its a lil’ disturbing to hear that Musona may be leaving us, but hey its business… Stanton Lewis has left us, ay that boy always left me hanging whenever he was on the pitch, never really saw what he’s capable of. I definitely wont miss Nhleko, may he have good luck in his future team. With all that said Makhosi Amahle I say this is the best transfer window we’ve ever been at with Bobsteak as a manager. He’s finally serving the team for the fans.

They are doing great, the vietnamn veterans in short zebra force had the guts to clean up top mafia dealings. They are led by a Lieutenant vs Full Bird Colonel. This seems to be a revived team and that will work too good when Bobby blows the whistle and the selected elleven take a dive then bobby opens fire at random. Zebra Force is a good flip but I for one a Black Swan.
