On Sunday afternoon at the SSKB football lovers flocked in and witnessed the best football team in the country, Mochudi Centre Chiefs outplay and reduce their opponents on the day Ecco City Greens to minnows.
The Champions were simply magnificent and would have easily humiliated their opponents by a bigger margin were it not for the wastefulness in front of goal.
The 3-0 score-line was not a true reflection of the game.
Talk-Talk had his best game of this season so far; tearing the right flank with ease and Phenyo ‘Lekwete’ Mongala is starting to gel very well with the rest of the team.
It was a brilliant team effort to say the least, well-done lads!
I would like to take this opportunity and appeal to the Head of State, His Excellency Sir Seretse Khama Ian Khama to find a way to see to it that the Botswana National Stadium is re-opened.
I think Mr President you would agree with me and many other Batswana that this has really dragged on for too long and has affected significantly the lives of sports people and hampered the growth of sport especially football. I trust that His Excellency will head my plea.
JOEL HAUNTS ORLANDO PIRATES
Joel ‘Amantle Montsho’ Mogorosi finally had his “revenge” against the team that failed to sign him and mistreated him some time ago when he went for trials at Mayfair.
He came on as a substitute to score what was a game changing equalizer in the dying minutes to take the match to extra time which Bloemfontein Celtics eventually won on penalties.
He topped up his good performance by scoring a penalty in the shootout as Siwelele knocked out the Telkom Knockout Championship defending Champions to proceed to the semis.
I had a chat with him after the game and he told me how happy he was to score against Pirates.
It was one the best games this past weekend in the English Premier League.
I honestly believe that Luis Suarez’s wonder goal will be a contender for a Goal of the Season award.
The way he brought down that ball with his chest under pressure from two defenders and still had the awareness to round the keeper to slot into an empty net was just breathtaking.
I could watch that goal over and over again.
I thought Swansea played very well on the day against the well on form defending Champions Chelsea. They were driven on by their fans throughout the game and they really deserved something from that match.
Chelsea was not convincing and that could have invited Swansea who are among the best when it comes to possession play.
Chelsea it has to be said missed their inspirational captain John Terry who was out with suspension.
Oscar did not come to the party and that did not help the Blues fortunes.
Only Eden Hazard showed some hunger to get maximum points.
I just wonder how many people would have had their money on Swansea before the game; this just shows that with determination any small team is capable of getting a result.
The £24 mill striker Robin Van Persie took just three minutes to punish his old side Arsenal.
The home side could even afford the luxury of missing a penalty from their star player Wayne Rooney before Patrice Evra made the points safe with a 67th minute header.
It was a dominant display by United and one can say they deserve to be top of the EPL log.
Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney were unstoppable in the middle of the park and Antonio Valencia had a field day against left back Andre Santos.
But it was nice to see Santi Carzola getting that late consolation goal perhaps as a warning that things could change when United visits the Emirates.
