Mkhulise speaks to us ahead of Baroka clash

hA clash against Baroka is next up for Mamelodi Sundowns at Dobsonville Stadium, it is matchday twenty-eight and the Brazilians are on the hunt for maximum points. Sphelele Mkhulise has been one of the influential players this season and has made more than thirty appearances in all competitions.

“The preparations are going very well for this game and everyone is working hard and everyone is ready for the game”, said Mkhulise.

Pitso, as he is affectionately known by his peers, has found the back of the net on four occasions and also grabbed two assists for himself this season. He recently scored a goal against Highlands Park in a one all draw.

Mkhulise also highlighted how his season has been and said that “It has been very great because I’m growing as a player and my teammates are helping me a lot and the coaches are helping me, so it has been a success so far”.

The Limpopo based side is currently fighting for their survival as they are currently occupying fourteenth position with twenty-five points and have not won a game since the resumption of football.

“Against Baroka has always been very hard because they are a hard-running team and now they are fighting to survive to stay in the PSL. And so it’s going to be a very difficult game. But also we are going to fight and I think we are ready for them” concluded Mkhulise.

    Mkhulise is a good player. I am wondering as to where Hashim Domingo is going to be drafted into the first team. I have been glued to how he plays and followed each and every part of his game more especially during the bio.-bubble matches. I must tell you, he is not a good player. He is lazy, does not have stamina, always indecisive and does not have a plan. I am telling you, this is a waste of resources by Downs.

      Mshishi is tired , Sirino is unreliable and wistful at times, Meza not effective at all.Maboe Makgalwa should start next game.

    What an easy game to win after Wits did us a favour earlier on,angiyazi into enjena a draw nje will be good for us to top the league,angazi noma we were underestimating them after we heard about Chiefs results, eish I’m so disappointed.

    There’s nothing really that the technical team can do in this situation, it’s all up to the players and they’re letting themselves down big time. Everyone was calling for the same line up against Zebras, and I hope there’ll be no one blaming the technical team this time around

    1. Ayanda

      True member our players are letting us and themselves down. We only played late when Maboe, Makgalwa, mkhuma and Mahlambi were in.Otherswise Mshishi and Sirino are blowing hot and cold and hayi they don’t give much , they don’t mark and turn the ball over a lot. We only get serious when we trail.there was no pressing there especially first half.

    There is something wrong with this sundowns team or the way Pitso set his team! This Sundowns team come not come from behind! Once we concede first it’s a done deal! Playing with one striker it does help especially if we concede firstly!


      I said we needed to analyze Chiefs game carefully,Sirino just scored but,he lost the ball frequently and even today he lost the ball the entire first half and even the second half yet he played the whole game.We play most of the time in our own half with no sense of urgency not hurting our opponents.We don’t deserve this league the way we applied ourselves tonight.We cannot score more 5 goals in the next 2 games coz some lazy player like Sirino loses freely and don’t chase back to win the ball.

    Possession football at our area didn’t gave any good results, slow build ups at the back and start rushing in the last five minutes is not good,Sundowns their downfall is slow pace not pressing their opponents early no sense of urgency, just a draw nje was a big task MaSandawana tjoo.Sirino sold a dummy in eighteen area instead of shooting the ball,he should be benched in the next two games he thinks he’s a star.

    There’s no coach at Sundowns. One day you will agree with me. Dylan Kehr against Pitso, Manqoba and Mokoena. Three local coaches defeated by one foreign coach Eyy isende lendlela

    Motsepe has a lot of money to play with, if he really pays of Pitso millions of rands per month. What is the use of having three coaches while still loosing against Baroka with one coach? He better donate this money to poor people in South Africa.Sirino and Zwane were out of the game but he was afraid to replace them. From to the coaches to the players, they are all useless.

    If we want to be successful even in Champs league let’s have plan B tk show that we mean business, firstly lets abolish the so-called carpet football,piano and shoeshine this is 21 century now and teams study us perfectly that most of our balls are played on our half with slow build ups,we are the same as Barca who doesn’t change Dutch philosophy even they are losing,then on last minutes we are rushing to score and our coach doesn’t scold them he enjoy their pathetic display of kasie football.

    Let us speak reality we r expecting a lot from these guys (Sundowns players)I mean Sundpwns last have a 2 nill margin against Supersport&Amazulu.Its just that Chiefs stumbled after January this year but reaĺly r we hoping 2 win the via one nills throughout the season.I’ve been saying this that the technical team must plan B if plan A fails.You cant b satisfied by a false striler like Maboe who last scored in the first game of the season but still believe on him even today.No man we like 2 raise false hopes for into nje engekho.If Laffor was introduced slowly after his recovery instead of thinking Vilakazi will change from being a hot&cold player who just cant rescue us but only scores easy tap ins.Both of them Vilakazi&Maboe r Sundowns players only bcoz Pitso is a coach otherwise!!!!Anyway we cant score single goals&expect 2 win the league hayi khona guys aydumi kanje xa izawlunga.

    Can anyone tell me what has Meza done to deserve a starting lineup week in week out? For me h e runs a lot with no direction , I am sorry if I am blunt but saying it as it is.

  11. Ayanda

    Truth is we don’t have quality in the many players we currently have but because its sundowns whoever is signed suddenly is tagged quality yet not.Perhaps next year we will see quality players.Same with Chiefs they don’t have quality perhaps are even worse than us, so we can’t measure our performance against them.

  12. Ayanda

    That Hashim what what from Wits is not our material, I just hope its not true that he is coming to us.Gift and Goss there is quality right there.

  13. Ayanda

    Madisha and Lebusa seem to be a good combo, at least that is the only positive I have seen in the last two games. And also Lackay is excellent , there is still more bench for Langerman.

  14. Ayanda

    I am so so disappointed, I the players can redeem themselves by winning the remaining two matches though now more than ever it’s not in our hands. Also at this stage anything can happen , as supporters we can loose hope because it’s not up to us but players must not because they have an opportunity to make corrections and influence the final outcome of the league. GOODLUCK BOYS.

    1. Bango

      It was sad to all of us, the way we were disappointed was too much, what more with players? There is still hope for the players to redeem themselves and us. That pain can be removed easily by winning.KBY

    That Ndzandzeka is a criminal, how can he add only 6 minutes yet that Dlamini killed the game for about 12 minutes at least. I feel 6 minutes has been Standard for many matches in this bubble even if the was no time waisting because of those cool breaks etc.

    1. Dalom

      Even if the referee had added more time, I don’t think we would’ve scored. Baroka scored in the 20th minute of the first half and we had more than 70 minutes to respond, but we continued playing as if we were the ones leading. What I’ve observed in this Bio-Bubble is that you need to change the teams more often if you want to win games. The only fit team in the Bi-Bubble is Cape Town City, the rest, anyone can beat anyone on anyday
