    Twala really deserves the accolade after an outstanding season. Had it not been for a string of successive injuries, the boy could have been very far in his carreer. Well done

    New coach with new ideas and that needs more time for the players to adapt to the new system

    A guy like MODISE deserve the best no one can stand on his way , i think it would be an insiration for him to pitch abroad. Our soccer is growing but in national team we need our own style not style adopted abroad CLIVE BARKER did this and we suceed (PHAMBILI MZANTSI GUDLUCK FOR CON CUP)
