It absolutely amazes me that 233 days before the 2010 World Cup, SAFA fires the coach!! Now my question is, is this problem really the coach, or must we be looking at more than the coach?
Why is it that no matter who we have as our coach we lose games? Lets look at rugby and compare the 2, when the boks are losing and losing we fire the coach and get another coach in. Then what happens is things start to change and we start to look more positive. Then why when we put a new coach in with Bafana the same results come through? Maybe we should start getting players that have more passion for the sport? Or players that won’t go on strike the day before a big competition for better salaries?
Then my next problem is that every one is calling to bring Benni back… what a really bad idea!! The guy only plays for Bafana when it suits him and he feels that he is bigger than bafana and rocking up at training camps when he feels he should. This is not the type of player we need!!
Now the next thing I am a little concerned about is, when Santana came in as coach we started playing a different, better brand of football, we looked like a more of an international team using our midfield and not just trying to Shibobo everyone on the field. Santana made SA play a better game and his strategies were good, but the players on the field could not finish with the amount of possession we had… is this the coaches fault? Or should we be looking at the players again?
I rate 233 days to go and now we can really forget about getting anywhere in the world cup! If we win a game I will be very very suprised! With that said though, I will still stand behind Bafana because they wear the colour of my country. I still wish them well and stand with blind hope!
