    The sooner our coach realized that Hlompho is finished the better, that guy is costing us a lot with his stray passes that’s why you find Jali doing almost everything on the middle field but you will not find our coach shouting at him instead he will clap the hands on him so as Langerman I wonder why he still plays for Downs even nowadays ahead of Lakay.

    I fully agree Hlompho did us wonders in the past but let his contract not renewed, Surprise and Nyandoro were let go so what’s wrong in keeping a player who is not delivering,We bought Seabi a very good player but even today they will say he’s injured even though he’s not on injury list players, Nascimento come straight to the bench whereas We’ve got other players waiting like Bangaly and I wonder what’s other players are saying about this.If we can’t beat our local guys I wonder how are we going to survive in Champs League with this kind of play.I never saw a coach whose on comfort zone like Pitso listen to his interview after the game.
    I’m waiting to be hammered and being told am I a Downs supporter for really like they normal do if you differ with Pitso’s tactics but deep down on my heart I know my blood is yellow and I don’t need to prove to someone’s else that,sengiphetha ngiyi Dawana and ngohlala ngiyilo.

      Only 1 person can hammer you for your opinion member. Maybe his nickname is Motsepe. Kick “Motsepe” Boboza. He gets confused and think he is the real owner of Sundowns. Hlompo can still offer us something but he can’t give us 90 minutes. Remember we coming from a tough game on Saturday so we just need to manage him. Beside we don’t have anyone who can take his position at a moment. If him and Jali are not available we in trouble. We only have 2 reliable and effective central midfielders. Same applies to Langerman. He is struggling but he does not have a cover. Lakay no longer have the hunger and the agression he once had.

  2. @Muzi you know very well that you are out of order, If you are a true Sundowns Supporter show us, You criticism is way out of order. every time we lose a game you blame and swear at our players,Everybody knows that Hlompho is a hard working player. We qualified so early because of Hlompho, you are always not satisfied, we lost yesterday because pirates last played last week and they were fresh, All the players did their best and we lost a game, Sundowns is still going to lose games and true supporters will always support this soldiers, HARD LUCK BOYS and thank you for your continued hard work.IF THERE IS A MEMBER WHO THINKS THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO LOSE GAMES THEN START LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TEAM.WE WILL LOSE,DRAW AND WIN GAMES otherwise we will start buying referees like the Zebras.

    Let us be honest guys we don’t have the divine right to win every game on offer.But truth be relying on old players &not buying enough players to enhance competition is a huge call 4 disaster.People won us the Champions league in 2016 but we can’t rely on that in 2020, past reputations I mean really???Mweene,Onyango,Ngcongca,Langerman,Nascimento,Arendse,MabundaKekana,Laffor have played their part &we should all be celebrating their contributions over the years and give them their benefit games as we have not done any for anyone at the club.Other players have been given more opportunities to warrant a selection like Maboe who last scored on the first game of the season against Supersport and u r giving him an opportunity to do what on the field of play?I mean the boy missed a seater against Pirates&he has been doing that since forever.Sundowns has resources why would we rely on ppl like Riyaard Peterse I mean really who can select that excepting that Pitso must accept he made a mistake by bringing that boy to Sundowns.But in reality Sundowns doesn’t have to win the league,we already won the Telkom cup&Nedbank Cup &the Champions league r there 4 the taking&even if we end up at position 5 we will be still smiling as we will b having something to cheer us about unlike other teams that need to lift a trophy b4 the end of the season.But 2 speak the truth Sundowns is not consistent at all this season,but these are humans and not aliens or ppl with supernatural powers.

    1. @Mfana, I disaggree with you , Teams that win champions leaque are teams with a lot of experienced players, Sundowns is currently sitting pretty there because they have a mix of young and Experienced players, Tebogo is the best that we ever had at the team, Hlompho was and is still leading by example, Barcelona had Inniesta’s for close to 8 years, Pique is still the trusted with 9 years at Barcelona, even today Ronaldo is scaring a lot of teams in the champions league, Hlompho pressed high and scored a good goal but today we criticize him, Sundowns FANS don’t appreciate, we played well against pirates hitting uprights not having luck, instead of lifting our players we are trying to find fault so as to swear at them.2016 is not long time back, all our players are in a position to win champions leagues. The team played better this year giving most players a chance to play which means we are more ready to survive this tough schedule. we are only hard luck on injuries to Anthony Laffor, Maboe, Zwane, Villa, Phakamani, Affonso, Mezza, Sirino, Oupa Manyesa, Coetzee and all this players were on long term injuries, But all that we can do as supporters is to MOAN and complain, You are saying you don’t mind if we don’t win the league so why are you complaining? I THINK WE ARE SPOILT, LOOK AT WHERE MAN CITY IS TODAY ON THE LOG, does that mean that they must sell all the players,players are not like machines, the new machine works better than the old one BUT players accumulate experience when they grow and become more better as they grow. We are going to win this league mark my words.

    I like this platform for we disagree to agree later.. I still believe in our Captain Keke, personally Tebogo is still no 1 as LEFT back..I think he’s even trying to attack, yes no so good with crossing the ball.. I believe he’s mistake is trying not to make mistake.. it’s like thinking about how are you going to take penalty, while u have the ball on ur ✋ no turning back.. STILL BELIEVE IN COACH PISTO.. Sundowns must learn to force things and win games.. mostly when our plan is not working… we’ve got players to do so….we support you GUYS.. don’t be discouraged…

    I never said I don’t believe in Kekana but I made a call&an example of some of players that r aging.Kick Boboza u r misquoting ppl without even went as far as saying I moan and complain when I say it’s not compulsory 2 win the league though I was echoing the same words that were said by the coach.And it it true akunyanzelekanga i-Sundowns iwine i-league, Pitso even said remember there’s the bigger one the Champions league and he even mentioned Chiefs took the league and we still there he mentioned Wits and Pirates gave a challenge but also lost the battle along the way.To show really that you are always misquoting other people there is no one to replace langerman when injured but gradually introducing a leftback to complement him 4 the future will do a lot of goods.U must guys differentiate between an objective supporter and a blatant criticiser who is destructive.Sundowns have a great goalkeeper in Onyango but immediately once injured no one keeps a clean sheet that alone clearly shows that we need an up&coming youngster.After all with will and togetherness and a heart of still,Sundowns conquered Africa with a lot of youngsters.

    I wish we can end up on position lower than number four on the log and not win the Nedbank so that Pitso will stop always complaining about fresh teams waiting to play against us,its not their fault to do that We created that on our own because We are an ambitious team to always crying about that its really boring.
    If We are afraid of that let’s fixture second string team against Supersport United on Nedbank so that we can only concentrate only on the league and Champs League,lastly Pitso should refrain from discouraging opposition team’s players if they want to showboat let him concentrate only to Downs he didn’t come here to clean up PSL.Now I see if he was at Downs during the days of Zane,Sipho Nunens,Masilela and Manqoba those players will be benched or sit on grandstand.
    We are called “Brazilians and Bafana ba Style” but there’s no style at Downs kukhona nje about Mabunda and Maboe.
    There’s a good number ten rite now whose contract is coming to an end by the name of Xola Mlambo but it seems we will not sign him and We are busy chasing an old player like George Maluleka of Chiefs,the hammers keep on hammering me made vele naqala ukusiphikisa masibeka uvo lwethu sekuyefana nje kimina lastly compliments of the New Year My Outie Kick Boboza Mina nawe asilwi but sili Dawana thru thick and thin asilwi mnewethu.

    @Muzi… sometimes your comments leaves much to be desired and your main problem is that you are anti Pitso unfortunately Pitso is here to stay.I agree we need to inject new blood but slowly but the problem Sundowns has experiencing is that most players are injured but overall we are not doing badly. As I have said before Pitso himself is to be blamed for raising the bar so high as a result some members believe Sundowns is unbeatable.

    1. THANK YOU SANDAWANA, @MUZZI IS ALWAYS ANTI PITSO AND I CAN TELL YOU HE IS NOT SUPPORTING SUNDOWNS, AND YES PITSO IS HERE TO STAY, This year we had too many injuries, Laffor, Phakamani, Villa, Maboe, Rivaldo,Oupa, Sirino, Themba, Affonso, Meza, Lebusa, and etc. But our own Members are swearing the boys who this year won Telkom Cup for us who did not go on holidays BUT qualified us to the CAF knock-out stages, We are doing very well in The CAF Champions leaque. Muzzi’s comments that our Members must not taking selfies with the Chairman in the conference but must confront him shows you that the man is lost. I also get hurt if we lose but will never go and swear at the boys who themselves hate losing. but I WILL SUPPORT THEM AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO BETTER NEXT TIME.
