2017/18 PSL teams’ analysis

The Absa Premiership is currently back from the FIFA break and the teams are already back in training as there is only a few days left for them to resume with their league campaign. Let us look at all the teams in the Absa Premiership and analyze each team accordingly:

Ajax Cape Town Football Club

The Ajax team is very averaged currently and struggling a bit. They had a few top players released for top Gauteng side at the end of last season. The likes of Mobara and Norodien are no longer with the team and they were the heart and balance of the team. This team might not even make the top 8 if things don’t change for better. Stanley Menzo their Dutch coach is trying his best.

Baroka Football Club

The Baroka team is currently sitting at the bottom of the league and a lot was expected from them as the coach promised fans to win the league and another trophy in their first season. Now they have to fight for survival and the replacement of Goloko as the coach might be the worse decision ever made by the management.  They might be relegated if they don’t start winning matches.

Bidvest Wits Football Club

They are fighting to win the league and their coach Gavin Hunt is known to be the coach who specialize in winning league titles. They might end in the top 4 if they don’t win the league.

Bloemfontein Celtic Football Club

The Bloemfontein based side is currently not playing well and the reasons range from poor management decisions. It seems the Celtic management are not true football fans as they just release players without knowing that they are losing top quality talent. Garbadinho Mhango who is currently playing for Bidvest Wits is one of the players who were released for free. Celtic might not make it to the top 8 if they don’t pull up their socks.

Chippa United Football Club
