Bambo's 5 goal haul response to critics

[Posted 28 May 2011]

Bambo could afford a smile after CAPS demolished Kiglon 5-1 away from home

Following a mid-week disaappointing 0-1 loss at the hands of visiting minnows Hwange, CAPS United coach Moses 'Bambo' Chunga was given one match to prove why he should remain the head caoch, and he responded by motivating his players to a resounding 5-1 victory on Saturday.

The critical and militant section of the Green Machine supporters that has had frosty r elations with the former Zimbabwe captain was baying for his blood should he drop any points against little Kiglon, having caused mayhem during midweek following the loss.

CAPS players had to come to the resuce of their coach, and what a response Chunga's boys gave!

After going conceding a goal first in the 18th minute when Nyasha Mukumbi brought down Witness Nyamutsaka in the box and former CAPS son Danger Fourpence had sent Muzondiwa Gonese the wrong way, the boo boys must have thought Saturday signalled the end for Bambo.

It was not to be.

Leading goal scorer in the Castle Premier Soccer League Simbarashe Sithole, scored two quick goals to give CAPS the lead, before three more goals in a sace of less than 30 minutes gave Makepekepe an emphatic victory reminiscent of CAPS' early form in the season.

The victory, while it might have saved Chunga's job, the jury is still out on whether it is enough to appease the hard to please section of CAPS' supporters.

The fact that the team could hit top form when the coach's job was on line, could be misinterpreted to mean that the losses in the past few matches were deliberate on the part of Chunga. It has proved difficult  for Bambo to please some CAPS supporters.

The fans' beef with Chunga seems to be that he keeps on chaopping and changing the team which brought the club a haul of 14 goals in just three outings early into the season.

Maybe what fans do not understand is that every match is a new ball game and should be prepared for differently. Maybe the fans will counter that argument with an unwritten rule that states that "If it ain't broken, do not fix it".

After all has been said and done during this weekend, one thing will be certain in Harare: there is peace in the Green Machine family, something which is good for local football.
