Gabuza and the fans

Soccer Laduma - - Make Your Point -

One in­ci­dent that re­fuses to es­cape the col­lec­tive mem­ory of foot­ball fol­low­ers is that of a cer­tain sec­tion of the Pi­rates fans get­ting un­der the skin of striker Tham­sanqa Gabuza in a game against Black Leop­ards this sea­son, this be­cause of what they felt was a below par per­for­mance from the for­mer Golden Ar­rows man. It’s now his­tory that af­ter mak­ing an as­sist, Gabuza re­acted by go­ing straight to that sec­tion of the sup­port­ers, giv­ing them a piece of his mind and throw­ing his play­ing jer­sey at them and walk­ing off the pitch in a clear ex­pres­sion of frus­tra­tion. Al­most all the coaches that have been at Bucs in re­cent times loved hav­ing Gabuza in the team de­spite his low scor­ing record, oth­er­wise he would have long left the team. Surely there is some­thing he brings to the team that the sup­port­ers per­haps don’t see or re­alise. The best they could do is to sup­port him for as long as he is wear­ing the Pi­rates jer­sey, but in foot­ball, the game of emo­tions, that’s easier said than done. That said, there is no place for boo­ing in the sport of the masses and the for­mer Golden Ar­rows man was wrong to re­act the way he did. Well, all’s well that ends well, as all par­ties have since kissed and made up. Gabuza has rarely made the team since then, although scored against Light Stars in the Cham­pi­ons League re­cently.
