24-0! Our spirit not broken

2012-03-04 19:56

Johannesburg - Powerlines FC coach Cornelius Brandt said his side would hold their heads high despite their thumping 24-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in their Nedbank Cup clash in Kimberley on Sunday.

"Our heart and our spirit is not broken," Brandt said.

"This is Mamelodi Sundowns and they're a good team.

"The clubs in our league will suffer after the experience we got from this game."

Brandt said he had tried to motivate his players during the break but they were up against a wall.

"I asked them to calm down and to relax," he said.

"It seems the stage was too big for them and they fell away."

Sundowns led 10-0 at half-time against their amateur opponents, and stormed clear in the second period to state their intent, progressing to the last 16 of the knockout competition.

The scoreline improved the previous record winning margin of 16-0 in South African top-flight domestic competition, which had stood for 36 years.

    its sad tht we make jokes bout ordinary teams,to be honest the blame should go to football adminstrators in NC and Safa.i mean what dd we expect that team lack a whole lot of football knowledge on how to play tectically,techincally know how.we still far behind in developing and nurturing raw talent,even our own bafana bafana is a big failure and disppointment.we need to take a good and far look at what we need to achieve and accomplish in our football in general.

    Ah. At last we see a decent score. All these 0-0,2-1,1-1 scores really looked like match fixing to me. Hi guys keep the scores down. It look much better that way. The people will think we are good.
