PSL: Its Amicable decision time as pressure pile up at Absa Premiership 2017/18
Absa Premiership 2017/18 season resumed in high note and pressure mounted on clubs to get maximum results.
Martizburg haven’t conceded a goal this season and have scored five goals in total, where else Cape Town only conceded one goal against the Phokeng outfit but as well scoring five goals in the process
Just two official league games played so far with one loss and one draw for Free State Stars they saw it important to pathways with Sammy Troughton as their coach,
It believed that management saw it important to pathways now that late and former Polokwane City coach and Belgium international Luc Eymael might take over at Free State Stars. 2017/18 #WozaNazo campaign looks to be
2017/18 #WozaNazo campaign looks to be more dramatic season and we might see more sides before December break being led, by assistant or interim coaches.
Phokeng based side Platinum Stars which is led by former Botswana National team coach Peter Butler, dropped valuable six points in league games openers and he’s the most under pressure coach in the province.
He didn’t have more time preparing his side for pre season as still waiting for his work permit and most of the work was done by his assistant Milton Dlamini.
That could be might be his excuse to management and fans but results are imminent to the side.
A young inspirational squad was unveiled at Phokeng Shopping mall last-week and since then points are still not accumulated for the side which is hit by off and on field issues on who will be owner or buyer of the club to save them from the financial crisis which seems to be hitting them hard to sustain the side.
Steve Komphela also under tremendous pressure to get maximum points after lost out MTN8 to Supersport united, drew to Siwelele away and again lost to Matsatsantsa in league encounters.
Fans/Supporters are already calling for his resignation and to get someone who will bring changes at the club.
Though not yet assured if the problem Kaizer Chiefs is the coach or its players or management, supporters were chanting Steve’s and Bobby’s names accusing Steve of not having plan B and accused Bobby of not buying quality players, immediately after the Supersport United defeat
Polokwane City win against African Champions Mamelodi Sundowns raised too many questions about Chloorkop side’s depth and consistency in this campaign.
Polokwane based side was not a fluke and how would they do in their next league game, hence the departure of Rulani Mokwena left holes or gaps in the technical team?
Since Orlando Pirates lost out on the top 8 finish last season they have some how corrected that to a degree. They secured four points under new coaching staff Micho and Rhulani. Although not yet tested to the fullest the absence of Sangweni was evident against Baroka. The is still alot of work to be done at the Orlando Side
However, the Serbian coach Micho stressed out that there’s still more work to be done and he expects players to don the black and white with pride and dignity to win games not to add numbers in the league.
The current defending Championship Bidvest Wits who have so far one collected one point out of the possible six after been defeated by Cape Town City at home and couldn’t hold on to the lead twice against Free State Stars.
They had to fight tooth and nail in the MTN8 quarterfinals against Golden Arrows coming from behind in both open play and penalty shoot out, to make it to the semi finals.
It was heated game where both coaches Gavin Hunt, Clinton Larson and Mandla Ncikazi were shown matching orders to the stand.
