Kick Off - - LETTERS -

“We as Bid­vest [ Wits] play­ers, it seems as if we’ve won enough. We’ve won the league so we should be more hun­gry, but we’re not that hun­gry and not that pas­sion­ate any­more. I’m just dis­ap­pointed about us as play­ers, the way we go about our games. Even when we’re 1-0 down, the fight to get back [isn’t there]. Now it seems we’ve reached that goal and we’ve had enough, and that’s the heart-break­ing part.”

– An emo­tional Moeneeb Josephs shares his thoughts after Wits’ MTN8 semi-fi­nal loss to Cape Town City

“Foot­ball is a game of chess. When you study the op­po­si­tion, you know how to avoid dan­gers, hit­ting them on the coun­ter­at­tack. Wits are one of the best sides in the league when it comes to set pieces, but I found out they’re also vul­ner­a­ble on counter-at­tacks. Three games three wins, I know I’m far from a thou­sand games as a man­ager, but I’m not do­ing too bad hey?”

– Cape Town City coach Benni Mc­Carthy gloats after yet an­other vic­tory over Bid­vest Wits, this time in the sec­ond-leg MTN8 semi-fi­nal.
