SASoccer365 readers' letters 12/12/04
Read on to find out why one of the SASoccer365 readers is 'Disturbed by Mike Makaab`s agenda', while another reader is upset at the way SAFA is conducting itself with 2010 on the horizon...

Disturbed by Mike Makaab`s agenda

I am very disturbed by Mike Makaab`s agenda as far as Pirates` players are concerned.

First he took the late `Slow poison`  all over the show with no success. He has done it again with Mbulelo Mabizela and now when we have the championship on our sights, he wants Vilakazi and Leremi.

I've got nothing against these so called agents as long as what they do is in the players best interest. When Nomvete left our shores to try his luck overseas, he was an incredible player with an amazing skill and speed, but now he is a shadow of himself.

The same applies with `OJ`.Maybe Makaab needs to first research these so called overseas clubs and make sure that our players will find it suitable to settle in those teams before rushing to get a fast buck.

Leremi was not a regular last season, and he has just found his footing as well as his first cap with Bafana Bafana and all of a sudden there is a possibility that he and Vilakazi will leave.

As for Vilakazi I've got no fear `cause he has outgrown the local soccer and can play anywhere in the world, but please, Mr Makaab, leave Leremi to make his mark first at Pirates before rushing to make money on this youngster.
 
Very concerned Ghost.

'Embarrassed with my country's football administration'

Dear Editor

I temporarily live in England, and I feel so embarrassed over my country's football administration. Every country's FA has problems, no doubt.

This does not mean that we should excuse our own flaws. In fact we should take out the speck in our own eyes before we remove the boulders in others'.

Let me get to the point. Here I was, proud and walking tall because we won the 2010 bid. Now, as time goes by, I am beginning to think that perhaps my friends here had a point when they were skeptical about SA's ability and hence right to host the tournament.

The stench that comes from within SAFA can be smelt all the way over here. I read almost daily how SAFA runs its affairs, and I see one thing clearly - there is a serious lack of accountability in that organisation, and the maladministration of the local game is a serious concern.

How can we trust these people to ensure that 2010 becomes an event for the world to be proud of? The World Cup is so much bigger than them and SA soccer, yet they cannot even ensure that the local game is run without making ordinary citizens bow their heads in shame.

On this side of the world, the 2010 tournament has already been labelled by folks on the street as "The corrupt world cup in South Africa". Although resistant to this, I increasingly think they might be right. Every headline I read about SAFA and the World Cup organisers has to do with infighting over who gets the biggest slice of the cake.

This truly amazes me. Why can they not put their selfish bickering aside and concentrate on the task at hand? The 2010 world cup does not belong to them. It belongs to the people, and not just the people of South Africa, but the people of the world.

They have been entrusted with what is too billions the holy grail of sport. Why can our administrators not realise what an honor that is? It is not a right to host the tournament, it is a privilege. Nobody is entitled to do it. Therefore because SAFA and its people were chosen as custodians of this event, it is about time they recognise how privileged they are to organise it, and stop fighting like babies over who should do what, and just do the job. Let's make FIFA proud of their decision. Amaze me, amaze the world.

A proud citizen

You hate more than you love

There is not doubt that there are people who hate Kaizer Chiefs more that they love their own teams. Instead of praising their own teams they rather put a microscope on how Chiefs played & look for something to criticize. Chiefs is doing well (we are in the Coke Cup final) & is getting better every game, so to all the Chiefs supporters, LETS SUPPORT OUR TEAM. To so called fans of other teams, SUPPORT YOUR TEAMS, THEY NEED IT.

Mmutle Kgampe.

I AM SORRY TO SEND THIS KIND OF COMENT TO YOU GENLEMEN. TO BE HONEST WITH YOU SWALLOWS HAS MANY PLAYERS THAT CAN DO MORE AND BEAT TEAMS LIKE CHIEFS AND OTHERS.

Lekone is one of those, Lota, PERMALL AND OTHER WELL ROUNDED PLAYERS.

THE PROBLEM IS THE COACH, HE DOESN'T READ THE GAME, AND HE DOESN'T SEE THE NECCESSITY OF REPLACING HIS FAVOURATE PLAYERS WHO DOESN'T PERFOERM ON ANY MACTH DAY.

HE RELIES TOO MUCH ON NDLELA, WHO CAN NOT USE HIS LEGS TO PLAY WITH OTHER PLAYERS, THE TIMING OF REPLACEMENT IS VERY IMPORTANT, MAKING SOME TACHNICAL CHANGES ON AERLY STAGES OF THE GAME IS OLSO HELP FULL AND NECESSARY.

Lota is one of the most dangerous players in the PSL but we don't understand why he can not play against clubs like Chiefs, Pirates, and SuperSport. I hope is not favoritism, grudges , or any close problem that might be far-reaching to the nation.

May you please re think about this MR Coach .

Many thanks

R.M
