Watch the Red Divils and the Black Cats take turns to fluff penalties!

This is directed to comrade Mbalula because he decrying symptoms as opposed to the causes for this national disgrace. Lets face it's now history that w used to be a soccer nation, not anymore. You dont need a rocket scientist to tell you what went horrible wrong. I see people lost in trying to determine where did we go wrong. Look arround your streets in the townships everywhere in South Africa. You see young people who will do anything to imitate black african americans. They talk like black americans, they dress like black americans, they sing and dance like blacks americans. Sadly black americans which our youth model after are not good in soccer so therefore we cant be good in soccer. Call a dance or music competition and you will see wonder. The dance and the music culture modeled after black african americans has taken over. Who do we blame today that the sports grounds in the townships are empty. Our youth are busy entertaining themselves elsewhere except in the sports grounds. Remember the likes of doctor khumalo were the last youth before the advent of democracy as soccer stars. This rich legacy of soccer as our pride as blacks in South Africa got entrenched during apartheird era because we had no other entertainment except soccer. Remember the 1996 AFCON we won proves that the likes Philip Masinga and Shoes Moeshoe were the youth groomed during the dusty streets of soweto during apartheird. When democracy was ushered in we did not protect these legacy instead we exposed our youth to black african americans. Our excuse was that it's cheaper to import films from overseas and the consequences were to be dire in the longterm. This killed our heritage as blacks. In fact this can happen or happens when you dont leadership that has vision beyond sight. So we paying the price for what we did in the 18 years or so. Who cares wether our youth look, act, sing, walk and dance like black americans. Who didn't protect them from media imperialism.
