Top five moments of the 2019/20 season.

We take a look at some of the best moments of the season as Masandawana clinched a treble and as well as achieving La Decima.

Number five: Opening match of the season against SuperSport at Lucas Moripe Stadium. This is a game that always brings Tshwane to a standstill. The Brazilians did just that as they ran away with all three points after scoring two goals (Themba Zwane and Sibusiso Vilakazi) both goals had Thapelo Morena as the assist.

Number four: Telkom Knockout final against Maritzburg United, the Team of Choice took the lead earlier through Judas Moseamedi. Masandawana had to dig deep in order to find the winner. The South American combination of Gaston Sirino and Mauricio Affonso delivered two goals which was enough to seal the first trophy of the 2019/20 season.

Number three: The last eight of the Nedbank Cup clash against Highlands Park saw what determination and fighting hard will do for you. With the game set and looking like it would go to the lottery of penalties, Keletso Makgalwa stepped up and showed composure in the box and curled a fine shot to beat the keeper and send Masandawana to the semi-finals.

Number two: First game after the resumption of football a game against Bidvest Wits in the last four of the Nedbank Cup. This was a smash and grab type of game. Both teams were locked at 2-2 and it seemed the game would go to extra time, but Lyle Lakay had other thoughts as he beat Brighton Mhlongo with a well-taken freekick to send Masandawana to the second Cup final of the season.

Number one: The last day of the season has to be the best moment of the season, after being the chaser the whole season, doing the unthinkable on the last day has to be celebrated. At one time Masandawana were 13 points behind Kaizer Chiefs but Coach Pitso Mosimane and the boys never lost faith and fought till the end.

    Editor can we hear news on the new players signed please , our news should at least align with what is trending in football throughout the Globe. Thanks for Shalulile and Mvala , who else is there. Sundowns is a big team it must not be quiet whilst other big teams day in day out they announce new players and those leaving.

    Sundowns marketing department is just a bore . When fans are excited with a treble,boom the department is dead quiet only to do the announcements when everyone knows everything . They are failing dismally in that department , they don’t exploit the opportunity that the boys have created for them to advertise the club . this is one of the departments that are disappointing at Mamelodi Sundowns . they are just riding on the backs of the hard working playing personell and the technical team that are breaking their backs making this club famous everyday .these people are creating a very fertile ground for this marketing people but still are failing to take advantage of the situation — I am disappointed

      Hi Jimmy. I hear you and partially concur that the marketing section of the club is not visible enough. I am saying partially because it goes without saying that SA media environment is not doing justice to the team. The team has and still performs exceptional than any other team wonders but (watch and.listen to the Ayana Dlamini’s of this this world) very limited credit and space. Wait until our noisy provincial fellows and their cousins win the league (something I foresee happening some years from now). I bet you’ll wish you did not pay your dstv subscription, never owned a radio and that you owned print media outlets do that you put some restrictions. Every radio and tv jingle will be about that victory. Every media outlet will rush to interview the officials and all that. Since the famous last win of the league by Chiefs aren’t excited and they are luke and idling. warm. Very disappointing and they think no one sees that. Sundowns won the treble but you get to be reminded about OP’s treble and the last 2 x league wins by Baxter which happened donkey years ago. Credit to our web master though by updating our social media platform perspectives.

    Highly commendable feat that is rarely seen in the competitive world. It really looked impossible until coach Pitso broke the hearts of the right wingers. It has been quite until lately when a coach who have been in competition forever join a club that has been competing in the PSL forever. It is suddenly like an unknown coach and a new club just arrived. I take my cheap hat off to ntate Pitso le technical team ya hae, the players and their families, management and their families, the yellow nation, well wishers, and more so Ntate Motsepe and his great family, sponsors and lastly our opponents (including the media fraternity for hating this team so much). The hatred and bias display from both print and broadcast media (Supersport tv included) against this mighty team keeps it afloat and highly celebrated across the continent. It is growing everyday against all odds. 🥅⚽️🥇🏆
