Blog: The mid-season transfer window – what I would like to see
The super league has just about reached the midpoint and every team has had a chance to fully weigh their strengths and weaknesses.
Some of the teams that invested well during the January transfer window have definitely reaped the benefits, like Lusaka Dynamos and Napsa Stars while others could not get the balance right like Buildcon.
The biggest winners so far are Zanaco who had a moderate spend but sold off some of their key players.
Despite only bringing in two notable players in Tanzanian Lyanga and Didi Kitumbo from Congo DR, after losing six first team players, Numba Mumamba’s side have made the lucrative group stage and 6 points behind league leaders with three games in hand.
Now that the transfer window is open from 1st July – 31st July, what would I like to see?
Mighty Mufurila wanderers have been improving with each match but one or two additions in midfield and defense can spring them out of the relegation waters.
Real Nakonde thought they could make it in the super league with the same crop of players from division one, they need to invest in one good player in each department.
Zesco United are not the team they were last season and they are struggling with cohesion.
The coach needs to allow the team to play naturally and impose his philosophy gradually or else he will do more harm than good. They don’t seem to have any business in this transfer window as they still have a huge squad they have not used.
Red arrows have shown good technical ability under Janza but they need some new blood, I would go for a striker.
Nakambala have good play going forward and sometimes it’s only height lacking in the strikers. Two additions would change the team.
I will end here for now but if I had to give advice to two players it would be Fwayo and Siamujompa.
Stay where you are, you’re doing fine and won’t settle down by the end of the season and risk fading from the limelight.
