FRIDAY SOCCOW DUST

Soccer is a game of opinions and I respect that but some opinions are skewed. Anyone who comes to you and say Stephen Mbuyiselo Komphela is a GOOD coach, look them in the eye and say DUST.

Kaizer Chips football manager Bobby Motaung has backed coach Steve Komphela amidst growing pressure from the club’s faithful to give him the boot. “You can’t change coaches like that. How many years did it take for Gavin Hunt to be fighting to win the league (with Bidvest Wits)? It’s the same story with Pitso (Mosimane). “Imagine if we fire him now and another coach comes in to ride on his hard work? The truth is Steve has been unfortunate. We have played well this season. How do you blame him for the last-minute goals we conceded in the latter part of the title race?” Bobby Motaung adumbrated. Motaung, who continues to bear the brunt of the club’s supporters also praised Komphela for introducing youngsters like Lorenzo Gordinho, Pule Ekstein and Ryan Moon," he added. “Steve has been brave enough to change the team and promote players who were not given a chance before. But sometimes our fans are not patient. They want results now,” Motaung concluded

@Bbm66: If he failed ONLY at Chiefs, are you saying the junior national.teams he coached never wanted to succeed? Didn't BB want to win against Botswana? When the season began, would you've counted CTC amongst the teams to win silverware, let alone finish in the top 3?

@His Excellency_zmvuyo let me put it to you like this.....depending on a club's mission I would say steve has only FAILED at chiefs....why am saying so? because that is the only club he has coached that is really challenging for titles...at this other clubs, he successfully done what has been expected of him....avoid relegation and build a formidable team to compete at the highest level...which he did, successfully so.......that's not a bad coach in my eyes....Tinkler on the other hand has just won just one trophy (surpassed expectations) but at pirates he FAILED......agreed?

@Bbm66: Results at the end of the day, as the end product, determine who is better. Majoro and Gumede weren't playing under Tinkler at Pirates but are playing under him at CTC. That shows there were/are influences from elsewhere when it comes to team selection at Pirates. That being the case, Pirates under Tinkler played better than the current team and never got annihilated by a tennis score yet he was an intern.

@BBm666 Use our "yardstick" consistently then,include that Steve has failed in this WHOLE career. Don't pick and choose where to use this our "yardstick".

@His Excellency_zmvuyo I was using your guys yardstick of gauging who is better than who....akere you guys said because steve has won nothing he is a flop?..mediocre to be precise, so hence i am saying tinkler also failed at pirates.....@ Soccow Cowmments, I look at the tactics, the holistic analysis of a good coach, man management skills, good football creating chances, unfavoritism and so forth....and I can tell you that steve is a good coach who is has been unfortunate not to have won a trophy.....tinkler showed his favouritism at pirates, prefering the likes of gabuza, mhlongo,motupa ahead of players like majoro and ovono despite their perfomance, tinkler is tactically lacking.....he got lucky this season...

@Bbm66: Tinkler, as clueless as you say he is, has a CCC silver medal, telkom gold and is placed above SK at present. How do you calculate one's luck and lack thereof?

@BBm66 Oh, now Tinkler failed at Pirates (Nedbank Cup finals, CCC finals) but Khompela (MTN 8 Finals, Telkom Knockout finals) is "unlucky"? This is strange!!

@Soccow Cowmments, he failed according to your criterion of judging a good coach, did he win anything?...NO!!!! so that't failure right?...so lets just say tinkler was not good for a big team...Fair?....steve's previouse clubs he coached were mainly concerned about survival, not wining...at each and every team he had to assemble a new team that would compete and he did that, it is only on his current job that he is at a team that challenges titles, and he has done just that challenging..and it is a matter of time before wining a title.....tinkler just like pitso, first gained valuable experience as assistance for may years with teams that were competing in africa (pirates) as well a bafana (pitso)....so just give steve a chance he is not a bad coach (tactically).......as for tinkler, that's one tactically bankrupt coach who is lucky......he proved his tactical shortage at pirates.

@Bbm66: Tinkler never failed at Pirates. In fact what he achieved in the season and a half that he was at Pirates SK can only dream of yet Tinkler did that as his first post as HEAD COACH. Since SK has the experience, what is holding him back?

@Bbm66: The answer is down or up there already. A coach, having coached for so long with nothing to show is not better than Tinkler who has won something already. Barker won a continental cup and qualified for a world cup, SK never took the junior national teams nowhere and failed to beat the lowly ranked Botswana. Are those readings of a good coach?

@Molane tinkler failed at pirates, a team which magnitude wise is on par with chiefs, so what does that tell you about?....at pirates tinkler was fighting for top 8, on the other hand steve's team has been improving season by season....aren't you being too hard at steve?

He seems to be not In control of how to discipline his players and as a result being intimidated by players like bo ParCow and that's a recipe for disaster

@Molane: I guess he was also unlucky to draw with Botswana in the game he took care of BB. The reasoning being advanced here is nothing but DUST. Even Fadlu Davids might come to win a trophy before Komphela, judging by how Maritzburg play under him.

@Soccow Cowmments , I will you the same question i asked @zmvuyo, how long must it take a coach to win a trophy to be considered better?...now that tinkler has a trophy under his belt in 2nd season coaching, does that make him better than clive barker who has never won a domestic title?......how long did it take "sir" baxter to win a trophy as a coach?...it took hime 9 years or so, so why are we being hard at steve?.....I askes again, am i justified to say tinkler is better than pitso,hunt,roger, baxter who never won in their 2nd season coaching?......my point here is simple...steve and tinkler are incomparable.....if you compare steve to someone who started coaching as steve then yes, we can make a fair unbiases comparison, but not with tinkler guys.....tinkler is a good coach but to say he is better than stivovo.....i agree not.

There is no such thing as unlucky kompela , unlucky for a decade, this post is about how Stevie is a mediocre coach of note...yes he must go, clearly he can't manage team like Chiefs calibre...he doesn't have b@lls to compete with high performing teams like Dunu and Wits for ultimate one, league title
