Some scenarios for this weekend:

If Platinum Stars do not win, Kaizer Chiefs, should win the title. Stars will then not be able to reach more than 56 points, Chiefs 'current total. Even if Chiefs lose both their matches, they are currently 9 goals ahead of Stars. If Chiefs win on Tuesday, after Stars don't win, they will win the PSL.

If Pirates lose, they will be out of the title race. They need at least a draw, to stand a chance of winning. If they draw, they will need Chiefs to lose on Tuesday. If they win, they need Chiefs not to win either of their 2 matches.

At the bottom, if Ajax win, they cannot finish 16th. If Chippa do not match their result, they will be safe from relegation. If Golden Arrows win, they are safe.

I feel bad for Platinum Stars. They deserve something. Nedbank should have been theirs and the league going chips way.

They deserve fans who show up at the stadium! The team is doing amazingly well, it's just sad that people in Rustenburg don't support them. Cavin Johnson could be coach of the year.

And Kaizer Chiefs win the league without playing. I am so proud of my team. I've been chasing this championshin for the past few seasons. I was in Polokwane last Sunday and flew to Cape Town on a Wednsday and still we couldn't clinch it. I am over the moon.

You got it wrong, Pirates are out even with a draw, remember they can only reach 55 points and Chiefs is at 56. Chiefs are the Champs.

And what if Baxter in both the PSL and the Nedbank ? This being his first season at Chiefs, dont you think he'll deserve to be the coach of the year?

Hhahahha dream on, I was sipping my Champaign today. We are the Champions, period.

I remember a season long ago when Downs and Chiefs were separated by goal difference. The Tsichlas still owned Downs and Natasha promised to go to court if Chiefs made up the goal difference in their last game. I think it was 8 and Chiefs won 4-1, but the Tsichlas were an entertaining lot.

Well done Kaizer Chiefs. While Platinum Stars are technically in the running, it's over. Great seasons for both teams though.

Thank you Crazydude. We deserve it. We played well in the first round and collected lots of points. The second round was much tougher and we must thank Sundowns and Golden Arrows, otherwise it would have been much tougher.

Why Cavin Johnson over Stuart Baxter? To me Baxter is my choice, in his first season with Kaizer Chiefs he won the PSL Champion ship and he is in the Nedbank cup final. He also didnt have an influence in buying players, he had to work with what he has. Similar challenges to if not worse to Cavin. So why Cavin?

Because Baxter had a bigger and stronger squad to work with. He is also the more experianced coach. I think that given what he had to work with Johnson did a better job. He will finish 2nd in the league, and made the Nedbank Cup semis. For Platinum Stars, that's an amazing season.
