PIRO’S CORNER 14.12.12

Gaborone United F.c


Our 3 nil walloping of Miscellaneous over the weekend set us 4 points clear from our main competitors Gaborone United.

Their case wasn’t helped by their 1 all draw against BDF XI on Sunday.

This 4 points lead takes us into the last 3 games of the 1st round and we can only be hopeful that we will extend it further.



Motlakase F.c

This coming weekend we are going to the Sam Sono stadium in Selebi Phikwe for our game against Motlakase.

The game kicks off at 3:30 on Saturday.

I just have a few words for them and my friend Kagiso “Mmanyama” Tshelametsi;
we are coming for you in full force and remember you have my 3 goals that I am coming to collect from you.



This is undoubtedly the biggest fixture in the Barclays Premier League.

The game has once again lived up to expectations when the two sides met last Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester city dominated proceedings in the first half until the Merseyside born Rooney did a quick double to give his side a 2-0 lead.

City pushed hard forward in the second half after the introduction of Carlos Tevez in the second half and they pulled one back from Yaya Toure and equalized through a beautiful half-volley from Pablo Zaballeta.

In the 90th minute United were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box after Tevez brought down Rafael and the £24million Dutch striker Robin van Persie stepped up to silence the noisy neighbours and send united six points clear at the top of the table.



The derby was not without controversy though, Rio Ferdinand nearly lost his eye after an unruly City fan threw a coin at  him, missing his eye  ball with an inch and for some minutes the match went into chaos as another City player stormed the pitch to confront the United centre back.

It was however nice to watch Joe Hart step in to calm down the out of control youth who now faces a life ban from City matches.

Such scenes really have no place in modern football and I just hope appropriate measures will be taken to punish the culprits.



Congratulations to the young Mogakolodi “Mpho Maleka” Ngele on his brace against Golden Arrows over the weekend.

He helped his Rustenburg side come from behind to defeat the Durban side 6-4 from what was an almost impossible situation.

Well done young man.


Joel “Amantle Montsho” Mogorosi is tipped to win at least two awards at the Telkom Knockout Awards to be held in the near future.

He is certainly going to get the top goal scorer award from the 3 goals he scored in the competition.

He is almost the stand alone candidate for the Player of the Tournament Award.

Congratulations mate, continue with the good work.
