After their first away win of the season against Swallows, Mangethe stated that the young Sekgota has been Amakhosi's star player since the start of the new season. 

Here's how fans reacted to that: 

"This is the problem where a player shines in two or so matches then he’s dubbed a star. Sometimes we curse these players because often either immediately or after sone few games the said player is a shadow of former self, says regular commenter Tolly-The-Return. 

"Ok, Mangethe we get it with player praising but only if you can win 3-4 games with an unchanged squad we will trust that things are happening, either than that you will still be blowing cold air," says Millionsoth

Reader Mpho P is clearly not happy at how Sekgota deals with contact on the pitch: 

"Star 'Diver' not player." 

After AmaZulu announced that they've parted ways with former Swallows coach Brandon Truter, fans were quick to jump on the news and share their thoughts. 

Here's what they had to say on the "OFFICIAL | AmaZulu Part Ways With Truter" story: 

"The writing was already on the wall considering that Zungu fired Benny, Truter was way way bellow the standard," says Lucky Masilela 437. 

"The jobs of the coaches are always on line just for stupid/selfish decisions of the players. Yesterday, Kwem didn't passed the ball to Majoro who was in the good position to score, had he passed it to him and scored, Truter, perhaps, would have not been fired," Bomba. 

Lastly, on the "Pitso reveals Al Ahli mandate," story, Mosimane mentions that taking Al Ahli to the Saudi top flight is the major priority and mentioned why the project was an exciting one for him and his team.

While one fan wished him luck, another pointed out the risk of Jingles joining Al Ahli:

"Let him prove himself by getting the team back to the top flight. it's a risky decision though," says Zohlah.
