Let's check out what they had to say... 


Mamelodi Sundowns stretched their lead at the top of the DStv Premiership table after a record-extending 13th successive league in their away clash against TS Galaxy. 

Although the score-line suggests otherwise, Masandawana dominated their encounter against Sead Ramovic's toothless side. 

The "Rulani On Downs Win: Only One Team On The Pitch" story, Mokwena pointed out that his side made the win more difficult for themselves by missing clear-cut chances. The readers echoed his sentiments in a way: 

"Sirino missed chances. Could have made Mailula the top scorer last night, overtaking Shalulile," says mogaseaub. 

"Yeah, good Coach. I sense a Kaizer Chiefs syndrome in terms of being clinical, which needs to be resolved before your players develop a tendency. Another thing the players tend to do is give their opponents more space, especially in the dying minutes. That has to change," says pgyakeni.

After another demoralising league defeat, Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane had to respond to questions on whether it was a mistake for him to start young midfielder, Samkelo Zwane in their 1-0 defeat against Masandawana. 

Although Zwane admitted that Samkelo didn't have the best game, which saw the youngster being hooked off at half time, he didn't feel that starting the Chiefs academy graduate was a mistake. 

On the "Zwane Addresses Samkelo 'Mistake' Against Downs" story, the Khosi Nation went in hard on Mangethe and his controversial selections: 

"He's very arrogant. He won't except that he got it wrong with that young player. He's good at passing and distributing the ball, he can read situations before it happens, but in terms of pace and entry in the opposition box, he gave us totally nothing.

"Even in the previous games... So Sithebe gave us exactly that, so playing Maart and Zwane at the same time limits our chances. They will rotate the ball nicely without end product," says juicecpeter. 

"Play Mathoho and Njabulo (Ngcobo) at the back, bench your favourites and give Nange a chance in midfield. That can solve Chiefs' problems. This thing of you playing youngsters will end in tears," says @Terry2007. 

"Just admit that you made a mistake by picking Samkelo ahead of Sithebe and things could have been different now and please sir, do not sacrifice Chiefs for your reputation, because it's obvious that you don't have any left.

"If we play the big guns like Pirates, Amazulu as well as the rich boys Sundowns, please ensure that you field the tested and trusted," says userThautha.
