Following Amakhosi's 1-0 defeat against league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, Arthur Zwane mentioned that he takes full blame for the defeat and the club's current form.

During the home defeat against Sundowns, the Khosi Nation were visibly furious at Keagan Dolly's display and they angrily asked for him to be substituted by Mangethe.

Here's what the fans had to say on the "Zwane defends Keagan Dolly despite furious Kaizer Chiefs fans' outrage" story: 

"I hope Zwane will stop his favoritism and select players by merit, Mathoho is a soldier who is needed there. Nange too..." says truthngezana1. 

"Zwane's job is to coach the team and not to defend the players. Someone needs to pull out his contract and remind him about his mandate. I am happy that he is watching the Sundowns games, he will learn one or two things," says ngwanamoshate.70. 

"Mr. I can't fault the boys while losing games left, right, and centre," says Tony Montana.

Orlando Pirates on the other hand, are in good form of late and have climbed up to fourth on the DStv Premiership table after a 4-1 thrashing over Stellenbosch. 

In the comment section of the "Ruthless Pirates brush Stellies aside" story, the readers chose not to get carried away over the positive result for the Sea Robbers:

"I think the Pirates coach is not doing enough to help the players play according to their strengths and fluidity. Look when he makes the subs and the level of discipline in our team when players lose the ball cheaply because they were leading by four goals.

"Pule, Dzvukamanja, Erasmus etc. They should be ruthless when the opposite team is weak. If it was another team, I think the four goals they scored was not going happen. Some players must up their game. Some players must be squeezed to produce consistent performance. The coach must not rely on the form of players but, challenge them to perform week in and out," says itumelengzukani. 

"This is a once-off thing. It is unbelievable. Stellenbosch FC did not want to play football today. Lets see whether or not Pirates can dish out a performance like this for 5 games in a row. We can then begin to think that Pirates are raising the bar - just like what Sundowns is doing," says maxncane who went on to add: 

"The fame is destroying Saleng. He thinks he is under pleasure. As result he is trying hard to impress the public, making lot of mistakes in the process. He runs a lot and shooting aimlessly. He is fast becoming selfish too. Sooner or later, there will be no difference between him and Hotto. e.g. run, rush, waste, etc." 

"This is how Bucs should be playing week in and week out. Up the Bucs!" says morewasn.
