The Grand Stand View

There are fewer more refreshing sights in Mzansi diski than a full flowing and attacking Golden Arrows side playing up to their level and entertaining us all with marvellous displays, I personally have missed watching the lads from Durban in the premier league and will be rooting for them all the way as they have fought hard to return to the division where they belong when they are playing to their potential. A change in the coaching department may initially seem ill-advised as they have lost a man that knows the ethos of the club very well and also had a keen knowledge base of the players within the club; Serame Letsoaka is a reputable and extremely capable gaffer and he will have to bank on all his years of experience in the game if he is to keep Arrows in the premier league this season. Golden Arrows have a good core of young players who have earned the right to play at the elite level, one prays that they will be afforded the opportunity to play that great attacking football they played last season in the NFD while bringing even more success to a club that once seemed primed to become a powerhouse in Mzansi diski. Surviving relegation at the first time of asking is going to be a tough ask for Arrows, yet one would not be wise to bet against them not only surviving, but also raising a few eyebrows with their impressive performances as well.
