The latest SASoccer365 e-mails concen mostly the signings made by Kaizer Chiefs, as well as the incredible amount of votes Sundowns have received in the Telkom Charity Cup.
Chiefs have bought wisely
Let me comment on the Chiefs new signings. I think they will again prove us right - these new players.
My best signing is Ngobese and Gert, with these two Chiefs will go places. I'm also delighted to have Mkhonza in my defence this will further strengthen Amakhosi defence because there be a lot of competition.
I can't wait to have Gert in middle of the park supporting the strikers, Ngobese on the left and Khanye on the right this is going to very interesting.
Welcome back home Sphiwe Mbambo for sure u'll increase competition and lots of good results will be seen this coming season.
To the coach I would like to see more of Mendu as our destroyer as we might loose Tenashe as long as he can correct his behaivor, we don't want somebody who will scare the youngsters like Gert, Mngomezulu, Mathebula and others - let them show what they are made of and I'm sure they will make us proud as Chiefs family. Asiye Makhosi
I think the reader that speculates that Ted doesn't like Mendu is really mistaken. Mendu has to change his attitude and behave and become a player not a legend in the Chiefs family before it's too late.
'Kaizer is a visionary'
Dear Mr Editor
"Kaizer Chiefs has started something big and has to be continues" these are the words of Ted after Chiefs winning the League Championship and surely they have put structures and people within those structures to continue the success.
And without a waste of time Kaizer Motaung has brought back Farouk Khan to assist Ted in making sure Kaizer Chiefs sustain their success.
Kaizer is a visionary who not only looks at instant success but also build at the same time for the future. The problem that enveloping our game today is that clubs seldom hang on their coaches for longer because of pressure for result.
When you know what type of football you want your team to play and succeed in achieving this then you sustain the success by bringing someone who subscribes to your theory of doing things to be an understudy.
So that when you leave he remains and continue that culture you have instill in the team. The type of players you bring in the team must be able to fit that style and culture. This brings me to the second point the players Chiefs have signed this week.
They are either signed to replace those who have left and complement those who are there. Therefore what you look at is the mentality of the players and how comfortable they are on the ball and should be expandable.
Simphiwe Mkhonza, Gert Van Schalkwy, Emmanuel Ngobese and David Mathebula belong to the category of those players who are expandable. These players are capable of taking their game to another level.
Then you have Simphiwe Mbambo who is the product of Kaizer Chiefs academy he understand culture of the team and Paballo Mngomezulu is a young future start who is inhibited and has no other foreign influences.
The media was expecting Kaizer Chiefs to sign big name players only to find that they have settle for what they require in the team. Chiefs are aware that they need a finisher, a striker who is comfortable on the six yard box to bury the chances created by midfielders.
Motsepevic must have flown over Mamelodi and dropped thousands of phone cards!
I have been following the Telkom Charity Cup's voting with great curiosity. The number of votes that Sundowns are getting particularly fascinates me. The last time I checked they were leading the pack with about 38 000 votes.
In the last few years I have not more than 5 000 Sundowns supporters at one match, even at their home ground.Its about time those Sundowns' ghost supporters rise from the dead and attend matches. (Yes, you bring up a very interesting point - Editor)
A friend of mine jokingly mentioned that Mr Motsepevic must have flown over Mamelodi and dropped thousands of phone cards which when inserted in the telephone automatically dials the Sundowns vote line.
Jokes aside, I sincerely hope that this is not just a demonstration of how well their secret voting machine works, but rather an indication of Sundowns reassurance to the top of SA soccer.
I hope to see at least half the number of those votes translated into spectators on the day of the day of the match. I hope this is an indication that Mr Gold Fingers,Chewing gum enemy no.1 Shakoane , is getting his act together when it comes to getting the Downs supporters back to the stadiums.
