  1. Congratulations Gozon Mutale for a man of the match perfomance on Sunday. This begs the question; how many more such players are falling thru the cracks due to lack of exposure in cup competitions! This clearly demonstrates that we need two more national wide cups to be competed for. This is a glaring example of the ineptitude of FAZ and failure to lure the corporate world for sponsorship! At the helm of the soccer body must be men and women of unquestionable character, who r ready to highlight their plans to th corporate world as well as account for every ngwee that is donated. As matters stand now everyone is waiting for Kalulu the hare to own up on how the 50000 dollars from the arabs was utilised. His feeble ” am not answerable to anyone” won’t cut the ice.

  2. Dont bring mapulanga we need players who can represent us in senegal and qualify us to olympics in brazil. coz walter bwalya is better than that guy.

    • Walter Bwalya is a striker, Gozon Mutale is a midfielder. How do you compare the two, you crap?

      In fact, I have watched Walter, he is still an averaged striker, Gozon is a complete attacking midfielder, watch out for him in the Premier league next year.

      • You are right about the boy, only hope his talent will be well nurtured by whoever is overseeing his development, Allan and George are doing a good job so far.

      • I hope this boy does not make a mistake of moving to one of the ZPL big clubs, as he will sit on the bench like we have seen with some talents, that have disappeared from league football

        Trade with sense mwaiche

  3. We dont want experiment we want players who can give us gud results coz we wil compit with players who are playing in europé not a player who is not playing in ZPL, teams like senegal they have professionals and strong squad u need quality players to beat them.
