A season of twists and turns

HARARE - Who would have imaged that at this stage of the season, little Harare City would be sitting in second place in the Castle Premiership, having, at least for 24 hours, dislodged FC Platinum at the top?

Who would have imagined that Dynamos, with one of the worst start by a defending champion in defence of their title, would have come back so strongly after such a poor start?

As I write this, Highlanders have just reclaimed pole position on top of the table, having beaten bogey side Monomotapa 3-1 in a professional performance by the title aspirants.

Bosso’s win yesterday will ease pressure on coach Kelvin Kaindu, who had of late come under increasing pressure from a section of the club’s fans, bemused by their team’s inconsistency in pursuit of their first title in seven years.

Now that Bosso are back on top, do they have the guts to stay there and appease their impatient fans come season end?

Or will Platinum justify their billing as the country’s richest club and early season favourites?

Never rule out the minnows too.

Harare City play an attacking brand of attacking football, pleasing on the eye, but it seems few amongst us are giving them a chance of being in with an excellent shout for the title.

Too much focus is on the big guns, Dynamos, Highlanders and FC Platinum.

The Sunshine Boys could use this to their advantage and emulate the feats of Monomotapa, Gunners and Motor Action, who defied their small-team tag in 2008, 2009 and 2010 to be crowned of Zimbabwe. The race is on!
