Stuart Baxter and His Thousand Excuses
After that dull/boring Kaizer Chiefs vs. Bloemfontein Celtics game I knew somehow that Baxter was going to make tons of excuses for his team. And he didn’t disappoint.
But before I get there, here is a question: Who do you consider TOP players at Kaizer Chiefs besides Katsande and Mathoho? As far as I am concerned the rest are average at best and second rate at worst. I mean Gaxa, Letsholonyane, Tshabalala – what a bunch of losers!
Anyways here are Baxter’s excuses:
“I think the crowd probably feel cheated but, the only thing you feel cheated about is probably the quality of the pitch that we can’t invest enough money in South African football to get better than a cow-patch”
Yha, blame the pitch.
“I thought the players in both teams worked terrifically hard, this is always a difficult place to come and play. It’s difficult to break down a team with an aggressive defence.”
Celtics worked hard, thats for sure, not so much Kaizer Chiefs.
“Can we play better? Yes we can, but the fact of the matter remains that you’ve got to be super-concentrated, super-sharp and your first touch has got to be outstanding to play great football on this pitch.”
“I think we played decent football, but we can play better, and I’m hoping a point here is one gained and not two lost.”
The glass is a 1/3 full, not 2/3 empty. I call bullshit to that.
