"Nobody Understands Our Players Like Local Coaches"

After the disappointment of missing out on the next Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON), former national team head coach Molefi Ntseki was sacked from his position, raising questions as to which direction the South African Football Association (SAFA) would go next. With SAFA having selected Hugo Broos as Ntseki's successor, questions have been raised as to whether Bafana should've gone with someone local.

In the latest episode of The SL Podcast's "The Fan Reaction Show", national team supporters question how Broos will relate to our players, with one fan stating, "Nobody understands our local players like local coaches". In the full podcast, supporters also react to Mamelodi Sundowns' 1-0 win over TS Galaxy in the DStv Premiership and the Nedbank Cup final, which saw TTM FC defeat Chippa United 1-0.

"Now It's About The Players Showing Commitment"- Khosi Fans On Top 8 Chances

Kaizer Chiefs' recent run of form has left a lot to be desired, and with a spot in the DStv Premiership top eight and a spot in next season's MTN8 quarter-finals up for grabs, Amakhosi need every point they can get. In the latest episode of the SL Podcast's "Fan Reaction Show", Khosi supporters criticise their side's inconsistency and give their thoughts on how Chiefs can finish in the top half of the table despite their recent struggles.

Following their recent 2-2 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic, one Chiefs fan said "They're not consistent, they only beat Sundowns and get excited, next game they are losing, other game they play a draw. All they need to do is pull up their socks and work hard". Another fan argued, "I don't think there's much the coach can do, now it's about the players showing commitment to the team. It won't be easy but they can finish in the Top Eight."

In the full podcast, supporters also react to Amazulu's 1-0 win over Golden Arrows, and Sundowns 3-0 victory away at Orlando Pirates.

"It Wasn't Downs' Day"- Fans React To Sundowns Shock Cup Exi

After Mamelodi Sundowns defeated Orlando Pirates 4-1 in last week’s delayed Nedbank Cup quarter-final, they immediately became the favourites to win the trophy. But in their semi-final tie against TTM, who are in a relegation battle in the DStv Premiership, the magic of the cup was not in Downs’ favour, with TTM snatching victory 6-5 on penalties after the sides went goalless in regulation.

After the match, The SL Podcast asked supporters to send voice notes through for "The Fan Reaction Show". One supporter stated, "It wasn't Downs' day. They could play that match for 5 more days and still not scored. TTM did well in defense". Another fan chimed in, "It's good to see a turnround happening at TTM after the way they started".

In the full podcast, supporters also make their suggestions for who the new Bafana Bafana coach should be. Use the player above to stream or download the full show.

"It's Disappointing And Very Painful"- Fans React To Bafana's AFCON Failure

Bafana Bafana failed to qualify for the next Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) after losing to Sudan 2-0 this past Sunday, and local supporters have voiced their frustrations in the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show. Due to their 1-1 draw against Ghana, Bafana left themselves needing at least a draw to guarantee qualification from Group C of the AFCON qualifying round, but goals from Saifeldin Bakhit & Mohamed Abdel Raman sent Sudan through.

Fans are understandably very upset, with many people unsure how to fix Bafana’s problems, with some calling for coach Molefi Ntseki to resign, and others expressing their sadness in the latest episode on the SL Podcast. “It disappointing and very painful for us”, one fan stated. “It seems like we don’t know tactics, or we don’t have a game plan” another chimed in.

Khosi Nation Full of Praise As Chiefs Down Pirates

Another eventful weekend of DStv Premiership fixtures has come and gone with several games causing a few surprises. Mamelodi Sundowns were involved in the biggest surprise of the weekend matches after they drew 1-1 with bottom of the table Black Leopards. Moroka Swallos dropped points after they drew 2-2 with Chippa United. However, in the match of the week, saw Orlando Pirates take on Kaizer Chiefs in the 100th Soweto Derby. Orlando Pirates were keen to inflict a fourth defeat on Kaizer Chiefs this season but Amakhosi proved to be up for the challenge. The game ended with Chiefs winning 1-0 thanks to a superb goal from Samir Nurkovic which saw him end his goal drought.

Samir Nurkovic’ strike saw Kaizer Chiefs down Orlando Pirates 1-0 in the 100th Soweto Derby. Kaizer Chiefs seemed to be missing a few players but Pirates were without their star striker Thembinkos Lorch.

After the game we asked our fans ‘How important was winning the Soweto Derby for Chiefs?’ and if Orlando Pirates missed Thembinkosi Lorch?

"He Was Given A Chance To Play, He Was Lazy"- Chiefs Fans

Last Friday, Kaizer Chiefs announced the termination of midfielder Siphelele Nthangase’s contract, three years after his arrival from Baroka FC. ‘Stash’ appeared to have earned a lifeline last year when he signed a one-year contract extension, and with Amakhosi short-staffed following their two-window FIFA transfer ban, the 2020/21 season left him the perfect chance to break into the first team. However, with Chiefs entering the final third of the campaign, Nthangase has only made two appearances for Gavin Hunt’s side this season, and fans claim he only has himself to blame.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “The Fan Reaction Show”, Chiefs’ supporters question Nthangase’s determination to turn his Amakhosi career around, with one fan stating “when it comes to Nthangase, there is nobody who is to blame except himself. He was given a chance to play, he was lazy.” Nthangase departs Naturena with a disappointing 38 appearances contributing 0 goals & 2 assists. In the full podcast, Sundowns supporters react to their side’s impressive come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Stellenbosch FC.

"The Bafana Squad Should Be Selected On Form"- Fans Debate National Team Announcement

Last week, national team coach Molefi Ntseki announced his 26-man squad for Bafana Bafana’s upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Ghana & Sudan. There are some new faces and some surprise selections, out of favour Chiefs’ keeper Itumeleng Khune made the cut despite his struggles with Amakhosi, while Veli Mothwa, Thibang 'Cafu' Phete, Craig Martin, Ben Motshwari, and Ruzaigh Gamildien all earned their first call-ups. The selection has been a topic of debate with many national team regulars have struggled with form and injuries.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “Fan Reaction Show”, supporters debate the latest selection, with one fan stating “I’m surprised by the inclusion of Bongani Zungu and Itumeleng Khune”. Zungu has struggled to break into his club Rangers’ starting XI, while Khune’s only made a handful of appearances for Kaizer Chiefs, as Daniel Akpeyi has cemented his spot in the line-up. Another fan stated, "The Bafana squad should be selected on form and merit, the coach is selecting on favouritism.”

"CAF Is Too Much For Chiefs This Season"- Khosi Fans

Kaizer Chiefs finally got to play their CAF group stage fixture against Wydad Casablanca but were left licking their wounds as the Moroccan giants thrashed Amakhosi 4-0. The result means that Chiefs’ winless streak has now stretched to eight matches, with their last victory having been their 3-0 victory over struggling TTM FC on January 18th. Amakhosi’s fans have expressed concern over their sides’ ability to manage the continental competition alongside their DStv Premiership campaign.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “Fan Reaction Show”, supporters react to Chiefs and Sundowns’ performances over the weekend. One fan is quoted as saying “They shouldn't focus on the CAF Champions’ League but instead focus on the league” while another expressed over the club’s management stating “Whatever is going on behind closed doors at Kaizer Chiefs is big. We might not know what is going [on], but it is big.”

Gavin Hunt: The fans have their say

After an action packed weekend DStv Premiership fixtures, Kaizer Chiefs have made headlines again as their winless streak continued. It has been six games since Amakhosi managed to secure all three points, in what some would say is a very worrying season. ‘The Glamour Boys sit ninth on the DStv Premiership table, 17 points off log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns and 9 points away from their Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates. One fan has said that “I think we have run out of luck.” Amakhosi fans are still trying to figure out what seems to be the reason for their team's struggles this season.

“We Are All Growing Impatient” - Chiefs Fans

After yet another disappointing performance, Kaizer Chiefs squandered more points in their loss to AmaZulu FC. Mistakes from Khune and the back four saw Amakhosi go down 2-1. Samir Nurković scoring woes continued as he failed to convert the few opportunities he was handed. “He hasn’t scored now in how many games? It’s a bit disturbing” said Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt in the post-match interview.
Kaizer Chiefs fans have shown their loyalty to the club and the players, but as the struggles continue, the fans grow more and more impatient. Fans are asking why the senior players haven’t ‘pulled their socks up yet?’

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “Fan Reaction Show,” fans reacted to yet another poor performance from Kaizer Chiefs, as they try to figure out what is the contributing factor to the disappointing season they are having.

“Swallows Don’t Have The Players To Win The League”

This weekend we saw the return of the DStv Premiership with a handful of games being played. The matchup of the weekend was arguably Moroka Swallows vs AmaZulu which played out to a goalless draw on Sunday evening. But the question remains, do Swallows still have a chance of winning the league this season? They have had an impressive run of form thus far which sees them sit third on the table, only 4 points behind log leaders, and current champions, Mamelodi Sundowns. Swallows fans provided a mixed bag of reactions, with one fan saying “We can’t put pressure on Swallows to win the league.”

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “The Fan Reaction Show”, fans reacted to the goalless draw between Swallows and AmaZulu and answered the question if Swallows could win the DStv Premiership this season.

“Chiefs Season Is Over”- Khosi Nation

Kaizer Chiefs’ descent continued this past weekend, this time in the Nedbank Cup, where they were knocked out in the first round by GladAfrica Championship side Richard’s Bay. While many PSL fans had already written off Amakhosi’s chances at silverware this season, the few that had hoped for an unlikely turnaround consider this the final nail in Chiefs’ coffin for the current campaign. A combination of poor form and bad luck has marred Kaizer Chiefs over the past two campaigns and there are now questions surrounding their future and the ability of their coach Gavin Hunt to turn the tide moving forward.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “The Fan Reaction Show”, Chiefs fans react to them being knocked out of their only shot at domestic silverware, outside of very slim hopes for DStv Premiership glory. One fan was quoted as saying "the season of Kaizer Chiefs is over" while another supporter stated “this time I'm going to blame the coach Gavin Hunt, for the first time".
