The image of the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League in describing how Highlanders FC and Dynamos have started their campaign of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League in Zimbabwean football

So the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League (Zim PSL) is already at Week 7 and the performances of certain teams have been impressive, while for others, it has been really hectic and dismal.

You would think Dynamos are fanciful of the idea of relegation by looking at their results so far. To their scores of fans, this is probably one of the worst starts ever in the history of local football in Zimbabwe. Dynamos still haven’t won any match, and it’s really awful. This Sunday, Denver Mukamba further exacerbated the woes of Dynamos when his sole goal ensured Caps United edged Dynamos.

And as for Highlanders FC, the project by coach Madinda Ndlovu to promote the youths at the club seems to be working quite well. Bosso are unbeaten so far in the season, and they are marching on. A scare seemed to have visited them on Sunday when Shabanie Mine took an early lead, but then the young players showed great character and managed to win the match 3-1.

Bosso displaced defending champions FC Platinum from second position and are two points behind leaders Ngezi Platinum Stars, who are on 19 points. DeMbare are joint-bottom on the table with only three points.

The situation at Bosso and DeMbare is a fascinating one. While Bosso are unbeaten, Dynamos have not won a single match so far. This embarrassing start to the season by Dembare might as well jeopardize their title ambitions for the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League.

United Kingdom-based Dynamos legend Chamu Musanhu said, “Things are falling apart, we need Operation Restore Legacy. There is a big problem at Dynamos right now. Things are not looking good and people shouldn’t just fold hands.”

There is still plenty of time though. The league is still a baby. But it’s all about the morale. And for Dembare, the camp is in flames. They have to do something to save themselves from shame.
