  1. This CAF champions
    league we are not
    ready to win it.
    We must use our.
    participation to build
    a team that will go on & win it . The likes of Mkhulise , Makgalwa, Mahlambi
    Seabi & Mobbie must
    feacture prominently
    in this edition. Locally I believe we can win a trebble if
    We start by winning
    MTN 8, Telkom & the
    Leaguue to celebrate
    50th birth day

    It’s a catch 22 situation member bcoz some members complain everytime when the same side is fielded but when other players are given a chance and we lose we still complain. Come 2nd leg there is no time for experimenting Pitso must field the strongest team. KBY I remain

    But members let’s b honest if Pitso hears our clarion call that players must be given a fair chance &selected on merit as is the case as fielding Jali&Mahlambi,they choose not to pull their weight it’s not Pitso’ s problem but that of individual players&it shows that they r not going 2 the media again and play a blame game with our coach.But fielding the same starting line-up is not on,so that these ppl who always badmouth the coach when things are not going their way r exposed.Its nice to see that the same players that complain about favouritism r given a fair chance&they r blowing it infront of us.Pitso Mosimane give every individual a chance&exposure so that when the work is serious&we r challenging for honours&championship no-one&his agent blames you 4 his misdemeanours but himself.

    Editor pls give us a match report of the Sunday Champions league game. We should not have to rely of other publications for match reports, especially if the game was not televised. Anyway, I’m confident that we will advance to the next round after getting that important away goal by Morena. I hope Sirino and Zwane will be fully fit to start for the second leg as they make us tick. Phaka is always dangerous when he comes in as as sub because of his pace. All the best with the Chippa game Masandawana. KBY

    can somebody explain to me as to wat is the point of having development structures when the couch doesn’t belief in youth ,but recruiting players as far as south America of wich we not sure if the will fit in to team.n the aether problem is most of ur players ar over 30’s everytime when yang players promoted to the fist team the loaned out,in the name of getting experience ,wich to me is just an excuse .now what is the way forwards how to refresh the team??

    Thank you very much great supporters for your insights, they keep us going and make us focus and be involved in the affairs of the team. We keep the positives and do away with the negatives, its still a long way to go, Caf and the PSL is long haul, allowing negatives haunt us now may disturb us, everything has since started and there is always gonna be an edge to try new things, every man registered for Caf must know when given an opportunity, he must fight for the bedge and the team and must measure up. It is the fighting spirit that makes the difference. Also we must know that there is No team in Caf, willing to lose in their own home ground including Sundowns. That has become a phenomenal , trend and order of the tournament . If you win at home, win convincingly . We also know what Sundowns can do at home, many teams have not returned alive at our back yard. So we must be grateful of that away goal, it positions Sundowns well. I choose to believe we lost professionally as a team not because so and so was on the field of play. Each game has different demands for the day. Keep the faith from the on set, knowing we will win some and lose some and yet progress to the other level. That is the nature of the beautiful game.

    As of our Development ,I think there are not being ignored as per say, it is a matter of time, the current squad will not stay forever. To be loaned out its good to get game time and exposure. To learn how to operate in a different environment, it is good for the players to be able to live outside your home and live well with others. It develops the player’s character , and exposes them to provoke adaptability skills, its actually very good for them, even when they happen to go overseas they are used to life outside Sundowns. Its not about skills or talent, all these without character will soon destroy their careers .Character has to be built first, you learn patience through that, you develop resilience from inside, Confidence is developed better even where you are not known, the player will learn to fight for position by doing what the Coach ask of him, but at home you will always feel its a must, you will feel you deserve it even if you do not deserve it ,because you feel its your birth right to play. That exposure brings the player back better baked for competition. That is what l think.
    Above all things Sundowns supporters are so much demanding, there are used to a finished product, polished diamond, polished gold etc, they may not be patient with our young talent without knowledge and experience at Psl level. That is evidenced by our first Caf game comments.

    Thank you for the CAF report. This issue about Khama Billiat, do we really need him. He went for free and we are going to pay chiefs to have buy him back, where is the business brains there?. What happened to, you make your bed and you …… Soccer is a very emotional sport, the winner in this situation is going to be Chiefs and Billiat not us (sundowns), if he really want to come back let him pay for his own transfer like Neymar did when he left Barcelona.

    Please! Please let his stay there (kgethile! kgethile)
