As I type this, I recall the Movie “Rocky 4” - when Rocky came out of the corner on Round 15, Ivan Drago also dead tired… in the back, you hear the commentator as if he was fighting himself, his voice came out as someone who was had just seen war… broke out in fatigue voice saying. “This is the last round!!!!”
What a weekend from the soccer front as a whole… I know the major topic is obviously the talk of Manchester… what a finish! Now getting on the regular program, Bloemfontein Celtic took a surprising lead, left the crowd stunned… Moroka Swallows still in it…
Two horse race... mathematics as they stand
- Pirates wins: They win… they win the league (simple)
- Pirates Lose: They pray for a Swallows draw or a loss
- Swallows win/Pirates lose… Swallows win the league (GD in play of 1)
AmaZulu and Ajax Cape Town for the Top 8 race
As it stands, AmaZulu wins… they claim the number 8 spot.
Relegation – Survival of the smartest
Jomo Cosmos is not officially relegated yet; Wednesday will be more clearer as if Black Leopards wins it will confirm relegation for Cosmos and Play Offs for Santos.
Exciting finish ahead…
I am looking at the fall of Mamelodi Sundowns from the podium when they looked clear favourites… the 6 or 7 draws since half way mark has let them down… considering that they are now level on points with Kaizer Chiefs who had a dismal run of form lately when they lost 3 in a row.
Last season far better in terms of goals scored than this one… this season will be remembered for the inconsistency of all teams.
