Read: Chiefs' Polokwane Decision To Make Zwane Uncomfortable
let's take a closer look at the comments.
Kaizer Chiefs announced recently that they'll be playing three league home games against Royal AM, Golden Arrows and Swallows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The club entered into a deal with the Polokwane Municipality to host three 'home' fixtures there, which could be a cause for concern for coach Arthur Zwane who's had a decent record at the FNB Stadium so far this season.
The "Chiefs' Polokwane Decision To Make Zwane Uncomfortable?" story, a fan stated that Zwane does have a reason to be concerned about this decision:
"Thanks Mr. editor you are just affirming what I said a week ago in the kickoff comments. For tautological reasons, I will not delve into what I said. It's safe to say that Zwane has a reason to be concerned. Commercially it's no brainer taking their home games there but results wise this can come back to haunt the team.
"Chiefs in my view, prior to this decision, stood a good chance of clinching a runners up spot in the league and thus ensuring Champions League football next season. We have unfinished business there. Chiefs have never been convincing in Polokwane," says gsithole.
"During my days as a soccer player, any ground or stadium did not affect me. I performed better if not the best in every ground and stadium. I was also not affected by the opposition supporters. The more they made noise against the visiting team, the more I was performing to the best of my ability.
"I don't understand, nowadays players find Chiefs and the jersey heavy," says Mr Soccer Enthusiast.
Pirates recently re-signed veteran striker Ndumiso Mabena, who returns to the Sea Robbers after leaving the club back in 2014.
A former teammate of Mabena's, Thulasizwe Mbuyane, explained why Pirates need a player like Mabena in their ranks on the "'Pirates Needed Someone Like Him'" story.

Here's what the fans had to say:
"Mabena is a good leader because he can link up with strikers, and supporters must not expect him to be a goal machine, he's going to create goals and space for midfielders to score. Good signing for Pirates," says [email protected]
"I hear you Thulas... but we don't have a technically/tactically discerning coach. The coach we have currently is bankrupt in this regard," says tbsafrica.
