Listen to this week's episode or read the details under the podcast: 

Amakhosi are winless against Pirates in the last 11 games and their captain has suggested that some of their p;layers aren't fit to wear the shirt. Let's take a closer look at the squad. 

Firstly, I think they are very light for cover as they lack depth in terms of players that can come off the bench and change the complexion of the game. 

Now, let's profile the regular starters:

Ramahlwe Mphahlele - He is only good going foreward and doesn't track back toi defend which is one of his primary duties. That leaves centre-backs expressed.

Godfrey Walusimbi - He is also good when the team has to attack and hasn't really adapted to the new environment at Chiefs. 

Siyabonga Ngezana - He is inexperienced and still needs guidance. He's also not comfortable with the ball at his feet and can't help his team play out from the back.

Mario Booysen - The defender is too erratic under pressure.

Willard Katsande - Needs more than one touch to deliver a pass which slows down the team's progression of the ball to advanced positions. 

George Maluleka - Is unfit. The midfielder has just recovered from injury.

Lebogang Manyama - Hasn't played competitive football in a long time and has just recovered from a car accident. He needs time to shed some weight as well.

Khama Billiat - Very good on the ball but he's hardly 100% fit anymore. The dribbling wizard is injury-prone.

Dumisani Zuma - Easy on the eye and possesses some deft touches but lacks a killer instinct. He's one for the future and he needs guidance. 

Leonardo Castro - Good goal-poacher but he lacks endurance in every game he plays. He can only play for 60 minutes.
