Factors that contributed to the 5 cup champions’ defeat

Written By Themba Khumalo on Monday, February 20, 2012 | Monday, February 20, 2012

1) Julio Leal – This man must go now! As I have always stated, unlike Ruud Krol, Leal runs out of ideas and selects bad choices. The guy is arrogant and does not have a proven record of success. He will take us nowhere.

2) Team Selection – Ndumiso Mabena, I wonder why Leal always select this boy? I mean he doesn't score and is so harmless to the opposition. He misses clear-cut chances and has become a liability. Who said the Benni-Mabena strike-force is deadly? It's in fact so poor and Bennie needs to pull up is socks otherwise Tokelo Rantie is so much better than him. And how on hell do you put Senzo Meyiwa ahead of Moeneeb Josephs? No man!

Fast wingers like Dikgang Mabalane and Tlou Segolela must be called up early and the African Champion Isaac Chansa might be our answer ahead of the overrated partnership of Andile Jali (Gattuso) and Oupa Manyisa (Aaaace)! One of them has to make way. We ended up striking with Rooi Mahamutsa and Siyabonga Sangweni, what the hell?

3) Dr. Irvin Khoza – Why, Why, Why??? Why did you have to let Krol go? Krol was never "under pressure", he new what to do. Because his new contract was going to be expensive, that's why the Iron-Duke let him go. Well, he is still in this country, unemployed so please Dr. Khoza bring the champion-coach back!

4) Port Elizabeth – Why play the match at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium? We have a bad history in CAF Competitions played in PE. Remember 'Gaborone United'? The only time I remember a win there was a hard fought one against Jomo Cosmos. We have our own 'Slaughter House' in Orlando Stadium so let's stop complicating things. The stadium was even disappointingly as it was empty yesterday.

Now we have to go play at a 'Village-Stadium' in Angola and win 3-0 or 4-1 or 5-2 or 3-1 then go to penalties, what does Dr. Khoza, Leal and his players have to say to us? We don't want to hear: "Let's win the League and try again next-year!"
