Kaizer Chiefs are embarrassingly busy rewriting the record books for all the WRONG reasons, much to the horror of their suffering supporters.
Amakhosi once again set an unwanted league record with their 2-1 defeat to Cape Town City at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

This was Amakhosi’s third league game since Stuart Baxter was sacked as head coach, with Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard taking over.
The duo came in just after the Glamour Boys had lost 1-0 to SuperSport United.
They have now overseen further defeats to Stellenbosch FC (1-0), Golden Arrows (2-1) and now Cape Town City.
In doing so, Amakhosi have now lost FOUR consecutive matches – the first time the proud club has suffered such embarrassment since the inception of the PSL in 1996.
The latest defeat once again highlighted the problems the Soweto giants are currently facing, not only in their technical team, but among their playing personnel as well.
Kaizer Chiefs are now in fifth place in the standings and looking over their shoulders as they slip closer and closer to the bottom half of the standings.
MTN8 hopes fading fast
Amakhosi have 39 points from their 26 matches to date and are just four points ahead of ninth-placed side Golden Arrows.
While their quest for a top-3 finish and CAF football next season appears dead and buried, it would be a complete and utter disaster should Kaizer Chiefs miss out on the MTN8 as well.
Their final four matches are a mix, on paper at least, of tough and easy games where they will play, in order, the 11th, first, 10th and 14th-ranked teams.
Three of the four matches will be played at FNB Stadium – which is some good news at least.
KAIZER CHIEFS’ FINAL 4 DSTV PREMIERSHIP FIXTURES:
Tuesday, 3 May: v Marumo Gallants (H) – 19:30
Sunday, 8 May: v Mamelodi Sundowns (H) – 17:30
Saturday, 14 May: v Sekhukhune United (A) – 15:00
Saturday, 21 May: v Swallows (H) – 15:00
The end of the season cannot come fast enough for the Naturena-based side.
Their fans will be hoping – and praying – for once they do some good business in the transfer window.
