Stuart Baxter guided Kaizer Chiefs to an unparalleled level of domestic consistency, losing only twice all season. Timothy Molobi takes a trip down memory lane to reflect on Amakhosi’s road to glory.
Kaizer Chiefs, who clinched their second league title in three seasons on Wednesday, have been fined R140 000 by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for misconduct.
All over the world, sports stars are taking to social media to voice their views or to vent their anger – and offending someone in the process. But they would do well to remember that when these comments go viral, hiding them becomes virtually impossible, writes Timothy Molobi.
Forget the unsporting conduct of hosts Congo-Brazzaville every time a South African soccer team competes against them.
It is often said almost doesn’t count and there is no way Kaizer Chiefs will let the league title slip away from them again, writes Timothy Molobi.
The culture of misbehaviour that is slowly creeping into football should be nipped in the bud.
There is no doubt Cameroon will be Bafana’s biggest threat in their 2017 Afcon group matches, but they should keep an eye on the minnows too, writesTimothy Molobi.
Is Mbombela Stadium the place Mamelodi Sundowns visit to surrender their league title chase?
Representation systems have been spoken about in key sporting codes for 21 years – it’s now time for federations to take act.
Eleven clubs have parted ways with their coaches this season, proving once more how trigger-happy club bosses are, writesTimothy Molobi.
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has not been spending sleepless nights ahead of their daunting trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo tomorrow.
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and his players have donated 60 pairs of school shoes to needy pupils in Soweto.

I’m busy working on Saturday’s babalaas when I get an SMS from a government spin doctor: “King Goodwill Zwelithini is going to talk about the xenophobia at KwaHlongwa near Maphumulo in a couple of hours’ time.”
Undoubtedly, many South Africans will share the views of Mathatha Tsedu, “Why are we failing as Africans?” (City Press, April 19 2015), in highlighting the self-hate that underlines the xenophobic attacks on other Africans.
South Africa was galvanised into saying #StopTheHate this past week.
