About Me:

A soccer-loving man. A referee. A former coach. Big Moroka Swallows and Arsenal fan. Football writer

Let the ANC fun and games begin!

Since expressing just how much I miss the old Telkom Charity Cup, a few things have happened in Mzansi football.

In 2010, against all odds, South Africa brought the world the biggest football party they had ever seen (and we even gave them a rather loud souvenir too).

When Pitso Mosimane took over Sundowns, the team were second from bottom in the Absa Premier League standings. They now lie in 8th position.

I decided to tweet away songs that could provide a great soundtrack for Luis "Vernaculaar" Suarez (you will get that joke if you are a fan of Trevor Noah).

With Arsenal now sitting in 3rd place in the Premier League with 6 games to play, I find it rather odd that some ‘experts’ would call this “yet another season of predictable frustration”.

Week-in, week-out, we, the United Social Networkers of the nation, are bombarded with a stream of tweets and status updates loaded with abusive, insulting and offensive language

With Kaizer Chiefs now seven points clear at the top, here is a list of five factors that have contributed to Chiefs topping the table with seven games to go.

South Africa is a great country. We have democratic elections every five years without major issues.

Like the situation when a naughty child does not act in the expected manner and is then sent into the naughty corner

The disgraceful actions only brought embarrassment to their nation.
