Kaizer Chiefs fans brace themselves for a bumpy ride as the club returns to PSL action

Spring has sprung‚ girls wear summery short skirts‚ birds chirrup in the trees‚ and the warm and easy months are upon us again.

But not all of us‚ if some posts in Twitter are to go by.

Not for Kaizer Chiefs fans‚ apparently.

The past Fifa international break‚ according to some mischievous posts on social media‚ were only a brief respite for the suffering of the Amakhosi faithful.

For a brief two weeks‚ while Bafana Bafana suffered away and then at home against Cape Verde‚ Chiefs fans‚ according to Twitter‚ could lay off the hypertension pills and get their minds off their team’s appalling off-season signings‚ poor results and painful football.

“This two week international break has ensured that Chiefs supporters receive spring in a better mood‚” said one Khusta (Twitter handle‚ @Mkhu28).

That all ends on Wednesday night‚ though‚ when Chiefs return to action in the Absa Premiership‚ where they have drawn one and lost one‚ at Cape Town City’s Cape Town Stadium (kickoff: 7.30pm).

Benni McCarthy’s City have won five from five in all competitions.

That includes reaching the MTN8 final with victories in both legs of their semifinal against that competition’s and the league’s defending champions‚ Bidvest Wits‚ including 2-1 at Bidvest Stadium on Sunday.

And Chiefs have never looked forward to trips to the Cape with much relish.

The prognosis might not be so good for the Twitter roasting to show any signs of abating.

The dopest thing about the international break is being spared having to watch Kaizer Chiefs pretending to play football.

Hey @KaizerChiefs use the international break to get a new coach along with a couple of new players.

With the international break a new coach could at least have a week to get used to the players. Must I always think for u? @KaizerChiefs
